Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted. Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city… And she’ll need to play.
Proper young ladies, con men, and a city that corrupts the innocent. That is certainly something I have never read before. I also don’t think I’ve ever even been inclined to read something like this. I’m sure the books are out there, but I’m not sure if I would want to pick them up.
But something about Ace Of Shades made me want to DEVOUR the whole thing. I dunno. I think I just really love Amanda Foody and how she presents this book through her Twitter and Instagram. Maybe this book just happened to come onto my timeline at the right time when I was ready to want to read something like this.
This is a story with no beginning and no ending. That is something I truly believe. I’m not sure if that is simply because of the content of the story or because Melissa Albert has a special way with words.
I feel like this book could start anywhere, anytime, within this world. It could start and go on and on and on and I think I would keep reading because I was kept intrigued enough to keep going.
So, this post was supposed be 18 books, but woah this post is really long. Because of that, I’ve trimmed it down to something that doesn’t make my eyes bulge when I look at the word count.
There are so many books that sound amazing that are coming out this coming year. This list is just a few of the many, many books that I’m looking forward to reading or am looking forward to other people reading so I can finally discuss with everyone! I’m sure I have missed tons of books I’m looking forward too, so let me know if your most anticipated isn’t on this list and we can gush together!
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King. To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences. In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
I love Ashley Poston. I adored Geekerella and I was lucky enough to meet her at BookCon and I have talked to her a couple of times over Twitter. She’s so sweet and nice and humble and amazing. So of course I was drooling over her new book.
This was my first Adam Silvera book and I was PUMPED to start it. I even put down one of my highly anticipated reads to start it! And I’m being completely honest when I say that I hate to say that it wasn’t my favorite.
