With the amazingness of Parliament Press House, I’m so excited to reveal the cover of a book that I’ve been waiting MONTHS for.. Chantal knows how excited and how patient I’m being for the 2nd book in her series about Hades and Persephone! Without further ado…*please insert drumroll here*

My levels of excitement for this cover reveal are through the roof. It just means that we are getting closer to being able to hold the book in our hands. I first started this series when I was accepted to listen to Blinding Night on audio. I immediately fell in love with Darce and Summer the second they were introduced. If you are into a modern take on a Greek Mythology love story, give Blinding Nights a read or a listen. Below this, I will leave some links to both books. Don’t forget to add Gilded Ruins By Chantal Gadoury to your Goodreads lists.

Happy Reading xx

Blurb

Centuries ago, the flames of a terrible war engulfed the sprawling wildwood of Brittany, displacing hoards of monsters in its wake. These beasts fled to the remaining patches of forest, the largest known as Brocèliande—home to the elusive Fae, and within unsettling proximity to the mortal kingdom.

***

A Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance, Lilac lives prisoner in her parents’ castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soirée. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst… Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever.

Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Brocéliande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger—and unsolicited help of the gregarious stranger who inserts himself on her quest—she must traverse Brocèliande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch.

This is the story of a cursed princess,
A crestfallen killer,
The town that wants them to burn,
And the witch that can save them both.

Synopsis:

A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn’t known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
This is the One World.

(Day Seven Blog Challenge) Write a Letter to a Character

One of the first books that I finished reading in the month of July was Afterworlds By Scott Westerfeld. I loved Darcy, she reminded me of a younger version of myself so, I wanted to write a letter to her. Short, sweet, and to the point. Just the way I would like it!

 

Dear Darcy,

You are about to endure the joys and downfalls of being a new YA author. Enjoy it and don’t stress too much about it. I may not know what it’s like to be an author but, I one day wish to be in your shoes. There was a time in my younger life when I dreamed of faeries, elves, and vampires. All in one world together.  Those were the days of my younger self. (I’m 25, it’s not like I’m super old or something haha). Living the life of a wannabe fantasy writer as a middle school student was what I was all about. Right now, I struggle to even find a new idea for a new book to work on, it feels as if my brain can’t focus on anything new. One day though, it will hit me like a ton of bricks…I just know it. Enjoy New York, enjoy the book tours, and never give up on your dreams.

Emma

I had so much fun doing this week long blog challenge, I’m hoping that it will help break me out of my shell but, also help to improve all of my writing skills that I know I’ve lost over the years. From here on out, it will be book reviews as I finish books. I’m going to try and find some new challenges to do. Maybe try my hands at some writing prompts too. Who knows…

 

Happy Reading, Emily

    (Blog Challenge Day Five) Character Connection

    When I was thinking about this challenge, it wasn’t hard for me to choose a book. My head has been stuck in this book ever since the day I picked it up. I read it in a couple days. Not only were those the best 2 reading days in my life but, it set me for a world of hurt because how much I can relate to the main  character in this book. If you have anxiety issues, and have a hard time coping with them, I really recommend this book to you. It just opened my eyes up big time.

     

    eliza.jpg

    So, the person I can relate and connect to a lot from this book is, of course Eliza herself. The way she goes through not only the everyday stress of being a high school student with anxiety, and depression. Then she has the feeling like she can never get along with her family. None of them understand one another. The feeling of maybe she will never be able to relate or get along with her younger twin brother with the fact that they are all sports savvy whilst, she is more of staying indoors. While she has her own little hidden persona, she never realizes one of her brothers also has his own hidden self.

    The way I relate to this everyday life of Eliza is with the fact, I keep myself hidden from others in my family. My sister and I share the same interests but, I don’t think we will ever get along the way we used to when I was younger. When it becomes a chore to get family to spend time with you then, I start to think about what I could have done wrong and why does my sister not want to hangout with me. It’s very heartbreaking to me.

    On the flipside, Eliza has her hidden persona where she creates this amazing graphic novel. No one knows the real her and she is one of the most popular internet sensations. When I go to work, I’m in my own different body. I’m a different person who is more confident and can speak up more. Instead of being around others outside of work friends, I get pulled into my shell. At work, I just put all my pain and anxiety behind me. Get my ass in gear and people look at me in a way I never thought they would.

    Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I will have my days at work when my jar will just explode and my depression, and anxiety take over. Honestly, that’s where friends come in handy. I’ve cried on a coworkers shoulder before because so could handle anything. In was a mess but she was there for me.

    My word of advice for Eliza would have been to try so much harder to open up with your siblings and try to talk to people so you don’t feel like you are just in a ball, by your lonesome. It should never be that way. I know it’s harder than it seems but, the only person stopping you from growing is yourself.

    Happy Reading, Emma
