“Although this book was my first by Buckley, it will definitely not be my last. ”
~ Under the Covers
This is my first book by Julia Buckley and I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised. I picked up this book because I had no idea what a Budapest Butterfly was and was curious. But it turns out, there’s quite a lot of interesting things about this book.
First off, this is a first in a new series and it has a real focus on the Hungarian culture. I’m always a big fan of series that do this. Not only do you get something interesting to read, but you can also learn about different cultures as well. Another book that this reminded me of are Vivien Chien’s book, which covers the Chinese culture. I think it’s great to see the diversity in books and I hope more books do this.
Secondly, I really like how family was such a big part of this book. I love learning about the different generations and relationships. It gives the characters and also the mystery something even greater to work with.
So, although this book was my first by Buckley, it will definitely not be my last. I am looking forward to the next books in the series and the other books by this author.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
