    3.5 historical stars I have read a few book about the Elizabeth and Alexander Hamilton. Ron Chernov's Alexander Hamilton gave one a wonderful perspective into the life and the times of this great American forefather. I, Eliza Hamilton introduced us to Eliza and provided her point of...

    If I had been taught American History through the telling of a love story, I feel I would have remembered a lot more. History lesson (with some noted fictional elements) that was actually quite captivating. ...

    I enjoyed getting to listen to this twist on the Hamilton's lives. It was interesting reading a YA book about characters who are no longer the typical teenagers. Alex and Eliza in this are at least 19 or close to 20, as far as I could gather. I liked getting to see what Melissa de la C...

    FirstLine ~ Forget Paris. This book is fantastic. It was one of those books that I was not sure what to expect and adored it cover to cover. I loved that there was history mixed into the story in such a way that makes history come alive. The love story is so compelling and the book ...

    It was nice to read the sequel but I was not into this one as much as the first book. I think it was because fans are now moving away from the new love courting Alex and Eliza found in book one on to the more serious grownup stuff. I wonder if there will be a next book in which Maria R...

    Review also posted to Booked J. As you all know, one of my favourite YA releases last year was Melissa de la Cruz's Alex & Eliza. For a hot minute, I hadn't realized that it was set up to be a series of novels vs. a standalone. Melissa de la Cruz is perhaps one of my most-purch...

    Alex and Eliza is a two-book (so far) mini-series based on Alexander Hamilton?s relationship with Elizabeth Schuyler. The books are based vaguely on real events and the first, simply titled Alex and Eliza, covers the period from their first meeting until their marriage. Little is ...

    This book was a bit of a trudge for me. With finals and a lack of interest I had a lot of trouble getting through it, but that also may have to do with the fact that the first one was not my speed very much either, but was decidedly better. ...

    This book was a very highly anticipated release for me this year, having loved the first book, Alex & Eliza so much. However upon reading about 100 pages of this book I felt completely bored! The story was following a very boring plot with all the potential moments of interest cut ...

    I?d like to thank Penguin Teen for sending me an early copy and allowing me to participate in the official blog tour for this installment in the Alex & Eliza series. First of all, I?ll reiterate again that I have not read the biography of Alexander Hamilton that is popular a...

    It was, as with Alex & Eliza, an enjoyable read. I expected a bit more to happen in this book, so I was slightly disappointed with it, and the fact that the author changed what I consider an important event in the lives of the Hamiltons, I get why she did it and it works better for...

    I?ve really enjoyed this series so far and can?t wait for the third book. I love history and YA so this was super appealing to me. I liked the focus of this novel on the early stages of the Hamiltons? young marriage (even though the author took liberties with the timeline for...

    *Actual Rating 3.5 stars It was cute but that was it?? At the end of the book it did say that there's going to be a third book, and if she doesn't make the cover yellow, I'm going to be extremely disappointed. ...

    Look, I'm not sure why I read this book when I hated Alex & Eliza so profoundly; I think I was just wildly, morbidly curious as to how the fuck this story can even CONTINUE TO BE WRITTEN AS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, SERIOUSLY, THE PREMISE IS SO GODDAMN BONKERS!! I can't believe Melissa d...

    It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple. I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Ha...

    In this sequel to ?Alex and Eliza? Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schulyer are newly married, but war continues to separate them. Alex is on the battlefront and Eliza is at home. I?ll be honest? this had a TOTALLY different feel from ?Alex and Eliza? which was historical ...

    *3.5 Although I didn't love this as much as the first one, I still enjoyed my time reading this. I would recommend this series if you have a passion for the American Revolution and enjoy learning about it, because I could defiantly see how some might find these books info-dumpy and...

    3 stars - Honestly nothing much happened. Some parts felt repetitive and the ending didn't feel exactly final - However, I did love the characters! They were charming and fun to read about and I did enjoy reading the book - I loved the banter and the focus on feminism - I really ...

    3.5 I loved how sassy Eliza was. Eliza called out Governor Clinton. I loved how they defined democracy but they didn't even know what it was. They thought it was compromise and respecting each other's opinions. I liked how Alex thought he saw her but it was the painting the jailbird m...

    *3.5* This was a nice read just a bit boring and uneventful. I thought it would cover the affair as well but I suppose that will be next book. This mostly surrounded Eliza being lonely and Hamilton being away all the time lol. Nice read just not super amazing. ...
