Release Day Blitz & Giveaway


Happy Paperback Release day to the fabulous Richelle Mead’s The Glittering Court!

Big and sweeping, spanning from the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.

Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training, and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.

When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and then when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.

But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands…

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted for us book blogger types by the Broke and the Bookish. They provide a topic, and all of us participants post our answers on our blogs and we hop around checking out one another’s answers! This week’s topic is

Top Ten Most Intimidating Books a.k.a Books that everyone else loves and I’m not sure if I will

1. Harry Potter Series
I have recently started reading these, as was documented in my “In Which Jessica Finally Reads…” post. You can read that here.  But I’m still not 100% in love with the books yet, and everyone I know seems to take this personally. 

2. Rick Riordan’s books
I mostly just haven’t picked these books up because they are middle grade and I tend to gravitate toward older YA.  Although, after seeing him speak at BEA and knowing how much some of my friends adore his books, I worry about upsetting them if I end up not liking them much as well! 

3. Inheritance Series
I’ve heard over and over and over how great this series is. But no matter how many times I read the synopsis, I still cannot seem to get into the premise. 

4. Vampire Academy Series
I just really love Richelle Mead’s adult books, and I really don’t want to not like her young adult series! Eventually I will take the plunge, but for now I really want to bask in the glory of how much I just love Mead. 

5. Lemony Snicket
Again, probably wouldn’t like this because it is a little younger than I normally read.  In addition, I really don’t like the idea of pissing off a whole bunch of avid fans if I happen to NOT like them. 

6. The Vampire Diaries
I love the television series, which is why I am afraid to not like the books. 

7. Weetzie Bat Series
Considered a classic in the young adult genre, this is a series that I really don’t want to ruin the illusion of being so wonderful. 

8. Hex Hall Series
These look so good and the synopses are just as intriguing, but I hate the idea of not liking something that has such great marketing invested in it. 

9. Ellen Hopkins
She is somewhat legendary at this point with all her books and the different writing structure used in some of her texts, but I really just don’t like any of the parts that I have read when flipping through in the store. 

10. Curse Workers Series 
I know, it’s almost a cardinal sin that I haven’t read this Holly Black series, but now I’m so excited about The Coldest Girl in Coldtown that I am worried to go backwards in her catalogue. 

What are some books that intimidate YOU?
