Synopsis:


A striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self—perfect for fans of Game of ThronesAn Ember in the Ashes and A Court of Thorns and Roses.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now the Winterians' only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter's magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter's defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, Winter's future king—she would do anything to help Winter rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter's magic, Meira decides to go after it herself—only to find herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics—and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

Hey Bookies!

Halloween is my favorite holiday! Haunted houses, hayrides, scary stories... FREE CANDY! Yes, I still go trick or treating -- Shhhh!

Having said that, the theme of this week's bookish quiz is sinnster ... Epic Reads came up with a quiz to determine which Young Adult villain you are.





Here's a snippet from Epic Reads regarding the quiz:

Everybody loves (to hate) a good villain. We’re not talking about those redeemed-by-the-end-of-the-series kind of villains, no. We’re talking about the soul-blacker-than-they-take-their-coffee kind of villains. The ones that genuinely get your blood pulsing because they’re just so dang evil. And, as the saying goes, everybody has a little bit of villain in them.
Find out which YA book villain you are with the following quiz!

Spread the Word Sunday is a meme hosted by The Tattered Page to announce some sort of book related news or cause.

This year will be my third time attending ALA and I am so excited. I did not get the attend the Midwinter in Atlanta earlier this year but I will be making up for it this June! *wink, wink*

For those who do not know what the American Library Association convention is, I provided some info below:

"With more than 900 exhibiting organizations, multiple pavilions and stages featuring the hottest authors, and numerous related fun events, the exhibit floor is an integral part of your learning, professional development, and networking. The Exhibit Hall offers you the opportunity to explore and discuss with expert vendors the breadth and depth of new and favorite library products, services, books, online services, tools, and technologies.
The ALA Annual Exhibits will be held in McCormick Place, Chicago.

As I mentioned in my posts, ALA Midwinter 2016 Recap & ALA Annual 2016 RecapALA Conferences are quite similar to BookExpo America. More like a lowkey version of BookExpo America. And I am so grateful to be able to have attended!

If you're a fellow book blogger or someone who loves books and will be attending this year's Annual Conference, look me up!

Daphne Raines knew it was risky to enter the underworld to save the love of her life, Haden, who had sacrificed his own honor as an Underlord for her sake. But she could never have predicted that she'd end up betrothed to Haden's conniving half-brother, Garrick, new King of the Underrealm and bound to his dark world. 

Even worse, Haden is banished to the mortal realm, and has just days to live as poison takes over his body and mind. Only Daphne's kiss can save him, but how can she escape Garrick and reach Haden in time? Surprises lurk around every corner in the final chapter of this epic romance story, as Haden and Daphne fight to fulfill their destinies.
