This week’s book:

29935867Title: Midnight Jewel
Author: Richelle Mead
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: June 27, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads): In MIDNIGHT JEWEL, Richelle Mead goes beyond the glitz and glamour of the Glittering Court, delving into the dark, political underbelly of Cape Triumph through the eyes of one girl who dares to fight for her freedom.

A refugee of war, Mira was cast out of her home country and thrust into another, where the conditions were inhospitable at best. In a life-altering twist of fate, she is given the chance to escape once more, and she takes it, joining the Glittering Court.

Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. There, Mira finds herself subjected to persecution, not only from her fellow Glittering Court jewels, but from her suitors, as well—men she would potentially be expected to give her life to.

By day, she goes through the motions, learning the etiquette and customs that will help to earn her anonymity, even making a couple true friends in the process, the forthright ladies’ maid Adelaide and the ambitious laundress Tamsin. But by night, Mira hatches a different plan entirely—one that, if exposed, could get her hanged in the highest court of Adoria.

MIDNIGHT JEWEL is the extraordinary story of a girl with few options who courageously forges a new path, finding love, passion, lifelong friendships, and maybe even a way to freedom.

Thoughts:

I am so excited that we’re getting a sequel to The Glittering Court! I absolutely loved the first book and I am thrilled that this book focuses on a different character. The world of The Glittering Court is so mysterious and intriguing, and I can’t wait to get back into it. I hope that this sequel will be incredible as the first book!

    I haven’t read The Glittering Court, but I am reading Bloodlines right now so after I finish this series maybe I should give this series a try.

    The only book that I’ve read by Richelle Mead so far is Soundless, although I do have The Glittering Court and the entire Vampire Academy series on my shelf. The covers for this series are oh so pretty!

    I loved Richelle’s Vampire Academy and It’s my favorite series too but I didn’t liked Glittering Court because the plot seemed pretty boring so I don’t think I would like this either.

    I haven’t read the first book, but man do I love the covers. I love Richelle Mead, but I have a serious issue finishing her series, for some reason. I will read every book, and then just not read the last book. I am so weird!
