I loved Ace Of Shades. It was definitely one of my favorite books of this year so far and I’m sure that standing will stay. So, I was absolutely thrilled when I learned that her launch party was going to be near me! There was even a few other people I going that I really wanted to meet/say hi to.
I love A Wrinkle In Time even though I could never, no matter how many times I tried, get through the book. Nevertheless, I loved the old movie, so I was super duper excited when I heard that a remake was coming!
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.
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!
During one week in July, I was supposed to receive A TON of book mail and I had a big plan to do a book haul for just that week and it was going to be great. Unfortunately, things went wrong with the mail and books arrived either earlier or later than intended. I also procrastinated a bit, so these are (almost) all the books I received this month.
I would like to start of by saying that I’m not the biggest fan of The Avengers movies. Personally, I find them boring. There are a select few that I do enjoy and really love, but I’m beginning to realize that I prefer DC over Marvel. With that said I am quite blind to what has happened in previous movies. Since Marvel movies are all connected, this could leave some serious blind spots in my knowledge of what and why things are going down. So, if I get some details wrong, I apologize in advance.
Welcome to my blog! It seems crazy to me that I am even writing this, because starting something like this always seemed just out of my reach, but I am so happy to be stepping out of my comfort zone and starting something new!
