My Nails and My Book Review - Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins

**Nothing to Disclose**

Title: Lady Renegades 
Series: Rebel Belle #3
Author: Rachel Hawkins

Goodreads Summary: Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark’s battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend—her world goes crazy all over again.

Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenage girls into Paladins—and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from.  Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town…which means her life is on the line yet again.

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the fun once again in the finale of this pitch-perfect romantic paranormal comedy series.

My Review: Do not read this if you aren't a fan of teenage snark. Of course, if you aren't a fan you probably wouldn't have made it to book three. I'm really not sure what it is I love about this series, but there is something about them that keeps drawing me back in. The characters feel real, and will actually admit their flaws. Ok, they feel real if you ignore the whole super powered teenagers who have to save the world and keep it a secret from their parents part. The ending was not my favorite, and quite bittersweet, but it was the only logical way to end the series. Anything else would've been out of character.

My Manicure: I chose a knife for today's manicure because of a random line in the book where Harper is complaining about how people keep attacking her with knives. The fact that there is a knife/sword on the cover is a coincidence. I honestly didn't pay attention to the cover and only realized it as I started typing up the post. I am surprised I actually managed to make this one work. Kind of a silly thing, but I didn't have a knife image. I mean, really? You'd think that would be pretty basic. So, I finally managed to find one (it also has some totally awesome crime scene images, too). The only problem? It has what appears to be a blood drip coming off of it, which I did not need for this manicure. So I had to take a lint roller carefully along just the blood drip to try to get rid of it, but still work fast enough that I could get the knife onto my nail. I started off with a base of ILNP Kings & Queens, simply because I've been wanting to wear this polish for a while now. Isn't it just gorgeous? The stamping was done with Messy Mansion MM28.
