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 2 & T5W Dec. 19th, 2018 | Most Anticipated Winter 2019 Releases

#Project14Lists

#Project14Lists is 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 haven’t heard of Top 5 Wednesday #T5W, it is a weekly bookish meme created by Lainey of  GingerReadsLainey and is not hosted by Samantha of Thoughts on TomesClick here to join the official Goodreads group. The topics are posted in the GR group.

Today’s T5W topic is our most anticipated 2019 releases. However, it is LITERALLY impossible for me to narrow down all of the 2019 releases I am most excited about because there are just too many awesome books to be released next year, I tell you. That’s why it’s a good thing Samantha mentioned we can do the first half of 2019 or even just Winter 2019. Since I’m also participating in Project 14 Lists, I decided to combine the two, heh.

As I’ve said, there are many great releases next year and I will be doing a separate post for ALL of the 2019 releases I am most excited about.  But for today, here are five January to February releases I am anticipating the most. Continue reading →

#Project14Lists | Day 1: Books I Want to Read Before 2018 Ends

HI THERE!

I know I haven’t posted anything else after my blogoversary post, but heyyy I’m back again with another one! Also, if you haven’t seen my previous post, you should definitely check it out and join my giveaway!

Anyway, I wanted to end 2018 on a positive note with me publishing at least five posts before the end of the year and I saw Shealea‘s tweet about the #Project14Lists and I swear, that was the sign I was looking for. (Yes, I needed the push because my lazy ass just can’t seem to manage to finish drafting a single post. Ugh.)

Basically, all we have to do is post daily for the next two weeks about a list of anything, really. This is perfect since it’s all up to us to think of a topic to do. So, by doing this project, I will not only be able to post five posts before the end of the year but— get this— FOURTEEN POSTS! Well, I might not actually be able to do 14 but hey, we never know, right?

If you are interested in joining this project and just want an excuse to post some lists on your blog, bookish-related or not, check out Shealea’s post for the complete guidelines. ❤ Continue reading →
