Waiting on Wednesday: The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake

I thought that this seemed like an interesting read and I eagerly added it to my TBR…and then I looked at the author’s name- Olivia Drake is the author of the “Cinderella Sisterhood”. More importantly, this book is the latest in that series so I now absolutely have to read ASAP!!! I love the “Cinderella Sisterhood” novels. They’re historical fiction loosely based on fairytales. And somehow, they have something to do with magical red shoes. I’m sharing the full synopsis below:

 

Synopsis from Netgalley.com:

Scandal begins with just one kiss. . .

Aurora Paxton was once the belle of the ball, the most sought-after debutante of the season—until a scandalous mistake ruined her.Shunned by her family, Rory was banished to the country to live in disgrace. Now she’s been summoned back to London by her stepmother, who is being blackmailed by the least likely person Rory can imagine: Lucas Vale, Marquess of Dashell.

Lucas is someone Rory’s known for years—a man as devastatingly handsome as he is coldly disapproving of her. What in the world could he want from her or her family? Rory intends to find out as soon as she comes face to face with her old foe. What she never expects, however, is that the icy aristocrat has a soft spot for her—and a secret plan to redeem her status. Could it be that Lucas has been in love with Rory all along. . .and has finally found a way to win her heart?

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

 

It’s “Heartless” by Marissa Meyer! I’ve been waiting for this book ever since I read the extract included in “Stars Above” (so from sometime in Feb). I’m especially thrilled with the cover which is the exact cover that I had been intending to buy. I can’t wait to start reading this. For those of you who don’t know, “Heartless” tells the story of the Queen of Hearts before she became Queen. Apparently she was an ordinary girl (idk. She’s always seem kinda crazy to me). Marissa Meyer has such incredible writing and even her villains are so human you can’t help but sympathise with them. I’m sure that this is going to be a mind-blowing book.

Fiction Friday- Book Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles #1)

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was hooked from the very beginning. I love the world building here. This book is well-written and impossible to put down. This is a futuristic retelling of the fairytale Cinderella…where Cinderella is a cyborg.
Cinder lives with her evil stepmother, one horrid stepsister and one nice stepsister. She works as a mechanic to help support them. When Cinder’s skills bring Kai to her, trouble begins. Cinder is about to discover more about her mysterious past and her real family. This book was impossible to put down. This entire series needs to be read all at once!
