T5W | Books on the Top of My TBR But Really, This is Likely My February 2019 TBR

Hello there and welcome back to Reading Solace!

It’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday post. If you haven’t heard of Top 5 Wednesday #T5W, it is a weekly bookish meme created by Lainey of  GingerReadsLainey and is now hosted by Samantha of Thoughts on TomesClick here to join the official Goodreads group. The topics are posted in the GR group.


Today’s topic is ‘Books on the Top of our TBR‘. NOW. Ever since I’ve joined the bookish community and have dedicated at least 90% of my life to reading books, my TBR has grown and grown and grown until I completely lost control over myself and I just kept on adding and adding and adding amazing books to it until they’ve become an overwhelming number, which I still don’t know how many books exactly there are in total.

Anyway, one of my 2019 reading goals, which I posted about a month ago, is to bring down my physical TBR to only 10 books. An ambitious goal, if I say so myself and I’m pretty sure my past self was sleep-deprived when I thought about it, but IT’S TOO LATE to go back on my word now.

SYNOPSIS:

Set in a darkly glamorous world, The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous but thrilling adventure.

Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can’t yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.

Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.


BOOK REVIEW

Roshani Chokshi is a brilliant author and it shows in The Gilded Wolves. I can only imagine the amount of research behind this work and the time it took for Roshani to complete this book. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS, especially the characters— their differences, their relationships with each other. They play a huge part in my love for it. I am a big fan of books with good character dynamics. It makes me love and protect them with all of my being. I’d like to mention my precious children, Zofia and Tristan. I just want to wrap them in fluffy blankets and stare at them all day. No, that’s not creepy at all. Continue reading →
