Miss Congeniality a little bit in this one and was very heavy with Harry Potter Jane Austen jokes I m not sure how I felt about this I think it was bit overboard with all the references to H.P and Jane Austen There is a romance aspect to this novel but wasn t the focus of the novel The scenes between Charlotte and Gray were so mild and was disappointing I feel that Gray s character was a bit underdeveloped and was hoping to see their relationship flourish I m not a believer of a falling in deep love over a 2 day period This kind of annoyed me I feel the romance side barely touched the surface here Which maybe was the author s intention Overall, this was a cute and fluffy read 3.25 stars rounded up Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery Publishing for the opportunity to read this arc in

few days but never expected to find herself falling for a judge.From the moment Charlotte arrived in the opening pages until the very end this one was just a ton of fun It was so nice to have the whole competition environment but with all the contestants supporting one another instead of fighting or bickering And I will say Buttercup Fang stole the show quite often in the story too, adorable The romance is mostly light flirting while the rest of the plot takes the forefront but definitely enjoyable to follow too.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For reviews

at first, I thought, oh great, a smart trumps pretty story Sort of interesting with the whole identical thing but yetAnd then something interesting happens When Charlotte has to enter the pageant in Ginny s place, she finds out that a being in a beauty pageant is than just the requisite makeover scene it s actually not that easy And it s not awful In fact, all the contestants she meets are nice, smart, and best of all, supportive What could have easily been such an easy out Ms Wilson doesn t take it, and I applaud her for it.Instead, the drama comes from Charlotte herself, as she finds herself falling for someone she shouldn t and feels terrible about lying even as she continues to do so Side note Ginny says her favorite book is Fifty Shades of Grey am I the only person on the planet who hasn t read it and the main male character s name is Grey I lol ed over that because even I know the main male character in Fifty Shades is named Grey something and this seemed like Ms Wilson taking a gentle swipe at the books That was a long side note, I know Anyway The romance is G rated, PG at most, and predictable, but honestly, who doesn t like a easy going romance once in a while And bonus, not outside angst from a bautiful yet mean woman, whoo This is going to go over well with fans of Sophie Kinsella, Bridget Jones s Diary which is now over 20 years old , possibly The Hating Game, as well as fans of The Kiss Quotient who don t mind a fluffier read.Sweet but not cloying and another yay for the female positivity Very cute flag 24 likesLike see review View all 4

until now Sure, there are some occasions where the importance of looks is mentioned, but the author also challenges this Loved it Then we have Charlotte s unique voice Like I said, she s the nerdy twin A librarian who lives for books, loves books, breathes books and has a whole lot of shirts with literary quotes on them You could safely say she stole my heart right from the start.That s not even mentioning the growth she accomplishes as a character I really admired her and the way she started seeing things differently, opening up to a world she always ignored, started accepting truths about herself and her past All this combined made for a beautiful evolution of both her character and the relationship with her twin sister There s a very clear focus on their relationship throughout the entire story They have a past, there are secrets between the twin sisters and those are waiting to make an appearance It adds so much to this story and makes it than just a love story.The other character I truly loved Well, the love interest of course He uses literary quotes quite a few times and, as Charlotte, I just felt my heartbeat speed up Not even ashamed of it.The only thing I wish was a bit different, is the evolution in their initial attraction towards one another It s there, and you can feel it But I wish it would ve had obvious progression instead of jumping from one thing to the next Could be me looking back at my reading experience though, since it didn t really bother me at the time of reading This simply was the perfect read at the perfect time for me which made me enjoy it so, so much Although it isn t a new favorite, it definitely brightened my day and gave me exactly what I was craving I loved all the literary quotes, the romantic aspect and the relationship

fan of it So maybe my expectations weren t the highest And yet, it proved everyone deserves second chances This was a very entertaining pleasure read.There is a bit of Miss Congeniality inspiration but it s very mild There s no crime being investigated and neither is Charlotte from the police But I liked living for a bit in the backstage of a beauty pageant, I even wished there were scenes like that even though the book is full of them.The romance is of a subplot, and it s also drunk from elsewhere waters Pride and Prejudice, in this case I really like the not knowing each other s real identities trope and wish there was of the couple, but I also think there was a high chance the book would become just like all other romances So let s say the writer knew the ideal dose not to spoil it all but still leave us wanting And kudos to him, I approve his reactions to everything going one there.This book doesn t go too deep and it s no innovation of any kind, but neither does it sell

had so many wonderful bibliophile references, and I loved that Charlotte would ve fit right in with bookstagram Harry Potter Jane Austen are both referenced on multiple occasions, and she talks about her TBR stack While this was a fun lighthearted read, I also loved that the sister relationship was explored There are so many books out there where relationships are fractured, so I loved seeing

Charlotte as a lead character And not just because she loves books and all things Harry Potter She s warm, funny and personable I enjoyed her inner dialogue as she attempts to navigate the world of

Charlotte herself.The Accidental Beauty Queen was fun for me I always enjoy the yes no maybe so of a rom com read I enjoyed Wilson s spin on this and the unique setting Not being familiar with pageants, I was surprised that the upper age limit for participation does indeed include those in their late twenties.Joy Osmanski a perennial favourite of mine was the reader It s hard to explain, but her voice is fun and lively Her reading is very expressive and she absolutely captures the tone of the book Her voice matched the mental image I had created for Charlotte It s clear, easy to

romantic comedy I cried, I laughed and I swooned The Accidental Beauty Queen was so much than a romance novel, it had heart and passion and lies, love and humor I had numerous Sandra Bullock, Miss Congeniality flashbacks and I just simply loved it I loved watching Charlotte grow, from being narrow minded about the contestants to actually getting to know them There is just something about character growth that makes me so happy.From the time that she, eventually almost selfishly, swapped places with her twin which I love so much to the when everything blew up in an epic way, I couldn t put The Accidental Beauty Queen down I loved how real the sisters were that even when you are angry and upset with them you would still do anything for them so that they wouldn t suffer.Not only was the story great, but it s a clean romance, and that was so refreshing I really loved that I got a break from the constant sex of so many romance novels these days, but I was still able to feel the love and connection between the leading couple AND their french bulldogs If you are looking for a fun, flirty, light hearted read that still has the power to make you cry, you don t need to look any
