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 →

#Project14Lists | Day 4: 2019 Reading Goals

Welcome to day 4 of #Project14Lists, a blogging event organized by Shealea of That Bookshelf Bitch. Basically, we have to publish a list of a topic of our choice for fourteen days from December 18th to December 31st. If you’re interested in joining this project or you just want to know more about it, check out Shealea’s post.

Today’s list is all about my reading goals in 2019. My 2018 reading goals were very simple. I wanted to read at least 20 books and read more books from my physical TBR. I have been successful in reaching my goal this year so I’m hoping I will manage to reach all of my 2019 reading goals as well.


Here are my 2019 reading goals:

  • Bring down my physical TBR to 10 books only

I have gathered quite a large number of physical books because my self-control seems to have gone on a long vacation this year (and it hasn’t come back yet!). Because of kind-hearted people in the community who gifted me some books on my wishlist, too, my physical books have grown. This may seem difficult because I am such a huge mood reader and most of them are fantasy books but sometimes I just want to read short fluffy contemporary standalone novels. BUT I know I can do it!
