I am so excited about this post! This is my stop in this creative blog tour hosted by MTMC Tour!
This is not my usual book review. Instead, I picked a few songs which I think fit the characters and/or story and hopefully it’ll intrigued you enough to make you pick this book because let me tell you, this book was great! It was full of vampires, shapeshifters, ogres, faes, vampires, and did I mention vampires? Well, there are vampires! What more could you want? But if you still want one more reason to pick it up, we have the bad guy who is actually a soft boy!
Oh, and before I forget… there’s also a giveaway you won’t want to miss at the end of the post *wink wink*
Disenchanted by Brianna Sugalski is the first book in a new YA Dark Fantasy/Romance series. It was published earlier this year, March 3.
This book is about a Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance. Lilac lives prisoner in her parents’ castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soirée. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst… Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever. Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Brocéliande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger-and, unsolicited help of the sardonic stranger who inserts himself on her quest-she must traverse Brocèliande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch.
This is the story of a cursed princess, a crestfallen killer, the town that wants them to burn, and the witch that can save them both.

With an education in Mass Communication–and an engrossment in all that is curious and bewitching–Brianna Sugalski is an author and blog editor at the Parliament House Press.
The Filipino-American author was born and raised on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, but travels the country every few years with her husband and two children. She admires the luminaries of the Victorian Era; growing up reading period literature, folklore, and fables has inspired her to paint vibrant settings of nature and narratives that readers will hopefully enjoy.
Ultimately, she aspires to make her own readers laugh, to challenge their perspectives on society and systemic prejudice, and to help them discover the magical meaning of their own powers within.
I love music and there’s nothing as cool as listening to certain songs and immediately getting flashbacks of your favorite character, book or scene. With that in mind, I picked these songs which reminded me to some extent of the story/characters from Disenchanted.
Fight Song by Rachel Platten | This one reminded me of Lilac.
My power’s turned on / Starting right now I’ll be strong
Nightingale by Demi Lovato | This one reminded me of Lilac and Garin.
As long as you’re with me here tonight / I’m good
Flames by R3HAB ft. Zayn | This one might be kind of a stretch but it reminded me of Garin.
You better run from me / Before I take your soul
You Are The Reason by Calum Scott & Leona Lewis | This one also reminded me of Lilac and Garin.
I’d climb every mountain / And swim every ocean / Just to be with you
Castle by Halsey | This one reminded me of Lilac.
I’m headed straight for the castle / They wanna make me their queen
Game of Survival by Ruelle | This one reminded me of Broceliande.
Are we the hunters? / Or are we the prey?
Don’t Give Up On Me by Andy Grammer | This one reminded me of Garin.
I will stay with you / We’ll make it to the other side
