Goodreads Synopsis:

Seductive. Cruel. Bored
Be wary of…

Prince and his fairy courtiers are staggeringly beautiful, unrelentingly cruel, and exhausted by the tedium of the centuries―until they meet foster-siblings Josh and Ksenia. Drawn in by their vivid emotions, undying love for each other, and passion for life, Prince will stop at nothing to possess them.

First seduced and then entrapped by the fairies, Josh and Ksenia learn that the fairies’ otherworldly gifts come at a terrible price―and they must risk everything in order to reclaim their freedom.


Okay, first off: when you use words like “seductive”, “cruel”, and “fairy” that is a sure fire way to get me to pre-order a book. Which is exactly what I did when I stumbled upon this book. I cannot wait until I have this sumptuous looking book in my hands.

I love different author’s takes on fairy lore and I am excited to see what Sarah Porter brings to the table. I’ve never read anything by this author so I’ll be going in with a fresh slate when I get this book.

Top Three Thursday: Prettiest Book Covers

Hello all and Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it! I am jumping in quickly to drop some beautiful book covers on you before I am lassoed back into the kitchen to help with the cooking. The theme for Top Three Thursday, hosted by A Cosy Reading Blog, is prettiest book covers.

Damsel by Elana K Arnold (Goodreads)damsel

 

There is something about the way the title GLOWS that just draws me in (also the amazing synopsis). I’ve been wanting to pick up a copy since it came out and I think I’ll finally remember to grab one when I do some shopping at Barnes and Nobel on Black Friday.

 

 

 

unkindnessAn Unkindness of Magicians by Kate Howard (Goodreads)

 

I was first drawn to the title of this book, then the synopsis, and then HOT DAMN THIS COVER! It is even more beautiful in person. Sadly, since I am terrible with keeping up with my TBR, this book remains unread. If I don’t get to it by the end of 2018, I certainly will be reading it in 2019.

 

 

 

The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien (Goodreads)two towers

 

One of the things I love to do most is search through used bookstores for different editions of The Lord of the Rings. I’ve got quite a few editions on my shelves, about 5 different editions of each book. But when I found this copy of The Two Towers I just about died. I love this cover so, so, so much!
