I am so excited to have read (and loved) The Glittering Court. If you’re curious about the book you can read my review here. Let’s just say this book was expansive and had a great mix of historical genres all meshed into one.
About the Book
The Glittering Court
By: Richelle Mead
Release Date: April 5th
For a select group of girls, the Glittering Court offers a shot at a life they’ve only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. To high-born Adelaide, whose wealthy family is forcing her into a loveless marriage, the Glittering Court represents something else: the chance to chart her own destiny, and adventure in an unspoiled, prosperous new land across the sea.
After a chance meeting with the dazzling Cedric Thorn, Adelaide poses as a servant to join the crop of impoverished girls he promises to transform into proper ladies. But her familiarity with upper class life comes with a price: she must hide her identity from her new friends, mysterious refugee Mira and fiery former laundress Tamsin, and most importantly, from Cedric himself—even though she’s falling in love with him.
Everything begins to crumble when Cedric discovers Adelaide’s ruse, and she catches the eye of a powerful young governor, who wants her for a wife. She didn’t leave the gilded cage of her old life behind just to become someone else’s property. But nothing is as daunting—or as wonderful—as the potent, forbidden attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. One that, if acted on, would make them both outcasts in a wild, dangerous, uncharted world, and possibly lead them to their deaths.
My Glittering Court
Today I’m sharing with you my Pinterest board on how I’d like MY Glittering Court to look. I’ve been trying to think who’d I’d have join me so decided I’d bring along some of my favorite blogger gals. First Crystal from Bookiemoji would have to be there since she’s a necessity in my every day life. I’d need her there for sure. Rachel from A Perfection Called Books would be there to keep things positive and help keep our schedules up to date (she is amazing at planning). I’d want Britt from Please Feed the Bookworm because I love her and her humor. Goodness…can we just include all our bloggers?
