🎉Happy book birthday Crown of Coral and Pearl!🎉 . Over the weekend I've been enjoying #crownofcoralandpearl by @mararutherfordwrites and it was hard to put down but mama duties called. Can't wait to continue reading! Love the pretty cover too ❤ . Do you enjoy YA fiction like I do? I've been including at least one YA novel in my monthly reads lately, they are such a joy to read! : SYNOPSIS "For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine... . Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that's ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince – while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land. . Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor's dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home – a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren's brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen...and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave. . In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie." : Thanks to @harlequinaus for this #gifted copy : : #mararutherford#yafiction#yanovel#aussiereader#bookstagram#bookaholic#booknerdigans#bookgeek#romancereader#booklover#ausbookishfeatures#booksharks#bookish#bookstagrammer#newrelease#bookblogger
A friend recommended this book to me and if you know me then you know I love thrillers and all things juicy with a lot of drama. Books that keep me intrigued with every page turned and this book was that! // The character Lucy is a young adult in her early twenties, the story focuses on her current situation as well as her past. She currently working for a job she hates, no real commitment to her boyfriend and still somewhat running from her past. Her past... involves Stephen. An average looking guy that swipes her off her feet. Tells her everything she want to hear but does not reciprocate the same feelings. Feeding her the BS and having her falling for him every single time. I mean who can’t relate to a man or woman that has ultimately fucked up your life in some way and leave you to pick up the pieces? // Check it out and our other recommendations in Book Corner// 🔗 in the bio. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #igreads#inspiration#blogger#life#motivation#happy#blog#purpose#bloggerlife#lifestyleblogger#goals#blogher#sundayfunday#readingislife#bookstagram#booklover#tellmelies#carlalovering
