The Glittering Court + A Giveaway

Richelle Mead is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her books are so addictive and she takes stereotypes (such as vampires) and puts a fresh spin on them. Her Vampire Academy series is still one of my favorites as it is action-packed, romantic, and hilarious. Richelle's newest fantasy series, The Glittering Court comes out April 5th, and I hope you guys are just as excited for it as I am!

As I'm over halfway through the novel, I can confidently express my adoration for this book. This book holds so much promise, especially for the subsequent books. It's a wonderful blend of old and new, and I really can't wait to see how it all ends in this book.

Some teasers to get you excited:

-Sassy Characters
-Teasing Banter
-Pretty Dresses
-Gleaming Jewels
-Inspiring Friendships
-Smoldering Romance 

I'd highly recommend you add this one to your shelves and pre-order it. Penguin is hosting a sweepstakes incentive for those who pre-order and send in their receipt.

Big and sweeping, spanning the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.

Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies capable of arranging powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.

When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together, they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first, as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and later, when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.

But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands. . . .

  1. This looks so good! Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I've actually never read anything written by Richelle Mead before, but seeing how much you love her definitely makes me curious! This book sounds interesting, and the pre-order swag sounds really cool ^_^ Thanks for sharing!

  4. When Richelle Mead talked about this book at YALLFest back in November, it was instalove for me. I hope it is as good as she described it.

  5. When I actually found out about this book, I wasn't that excited. I think hearing all the negativity for Soundless killed it. But now I am anticipating it because I really loved the Vampire Academy series!! I actually read it before I became a blogger :D And I'm so sad that the movie failed even though I found it hilarious at times. I don't really remember anything about the books anymore. Only that I really cried a lot when I read Shadow Kiss lol
