Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and settled in their own palace, things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile political landscape, she quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of deceit and infidelity woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.

Teaser Tuesday #14 (July 14): Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

Hello fellow bookworms! Have you guessed it yet? ‘Tis time for another Teaser Tuesday! This meme is hosted by A Daily Rhythm. All you have to do to join in is:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) (I’m doing one) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Magonia_bookcoverToday I have a teaser for you from one of the books I’m currently reading, Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley.

“Celestial alphabets. Writing that gets rewritten as the earth moves. If you look at the sky that way, it’s this massive shifting poem, or maybe a letter, first written by one author, and then, when the earth moves, annotated by another. So I stare and stare until, one day, I can read it.”

I’m not sure what I think of this book yet. I don’t know, I’m finding it kind of hard to get into? Although that’s probably not because of the book, more maybe because I’m just not in the mood to read at the moment. Hopefully I like it by the end of the book!

Happy reading!

Book Details:

Title: Anya and the Shy Guy

Author: Suze Winegardner

Series Status: Backstage Pass #4

Publisher: Entangled Crush

Publication Date: July 14th 2015

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Young Adult


Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger—and keep her off the streets for good—if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.

Problem is, Will Fray isn’t who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will’s identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he’s having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…

But if the secret gets out, it won’t just be his head on a platter—it’ll be the whole band’s.

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You’ve been warned.

Excerpt

It was a day spent almost entirely with the other guys, going over steps and set lists. Ryder had had to go to the doctor with a sore throat and swollen glands, so they were sitting on the stage watching for his arrival to make sure he could sing that night.

Matt found himself watching for Anya, too. Looking for a flash of her shiny hair, or the sound of her clomping boots. Nada. He hoped he hadn’t fucked it up the night before. He’d never, ever felt so into a girl before. Like he wanted to pull her apart, see who she was inside, and then put her back together again. He was painfully aware that he was beginning to sound like a creepy serial killer in his own head.

Not that there were many un-creepy serial killers.

“What do you think, Will?” He snapped out of his daydream.

“What?”

“If Ryder’s not able to sing, can you take the lead on ‘Hanging On’?” Trevin asked from his vantage point, sitting on one of the big black amps in front of the drum set.

“I guess.” Shit, he’d have to spend the day practicing. Which meant he couldn’t go find Anya. “Will I get a run-through before the show?”

“You wuss—what do you need a run-through for?” Ryder stepped onto the stage from the wings. “Anyway, I’m fine. Just have to gargle and spray some kind of salty fluid at the back of my throat.” He held up a large bottle with a prescription label.

All of them laughed except for Nathan who looked bemused.

“Don’t worry, Nath. You’ll understand when you’re older, mate,” Miles said, giving the poor guy a noogie.

“So what’s up with you and that reporter chick?” Trevin asked in such a way that Matt knew it had a double meaning.

“I’ve got her under control. Don’t worry.”

“Her?” Miles swiveled around and raised his sunglasses. “You have ‘her’ under control? How does that work?”

“I meant ‘it’. I have ‘it’ under control.” He couldn’t possibly have Anya less under control. Under his skin, yeah. The rest? Not so much.

“Just be charming. And don’t chuck any of under the bus. Ix nay on our secrets,” Miles said.

“I don’t have any secrets,” Nathan said, shrugging. Lucky bastard.

Trevin stood up. “Okay, I guess that’s us for this afternoon. Nathan, I think you’re up first for makeup today, but check the list on the door just in case.”

Matt made a run for the edge of the stage and jumped down.

“Your knee really seems to be better,” called LJ from the third row of seats. Where had he come from?

“Amazing recovery, really.” His face was static. No emotion. No happiness at his recovery.

Shit. Did he really suspect?

Matt hesitated for a moment and then continued walking. “Thanks to you,” he said as he rushed past the man who had put his brother in rehab.

Don’t let me hit him. Don’t let me hit him.

Top 10 Tuesday #14 (July 14): Top Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

Hello everyone! It’s time for a Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession, which can be bought, library, or review copy. So here they are, in no particular order!

Illusionarium_bookcover1. Illusionarium by Heather Dixon (library e-book)

I don’t think I’m going to be able to read this one, but I downloaded it from the library anyway. This book had been one of the hyped books in May so I’m curious to see what it’s like.

2. Mia and the Bad Boy by Lisa Burstein (bought e-book)Mia and the Bad Boy_bookcover

This was on sale, and I’ve been meaning to read it, so, I thought, why not? It seems like a good romance novel.

Spellbinder_bookcover3. Spellbinder by C.C. Hunter (bought e-book)

I love C.C. Hunter’s Shadow Falls and Shadow Falls: After Dark series, and this is a novella in the POV of one of the side characters, so I really wanted to read this! I believe it was released on June 30th, so this is a pretty late download for me, but it kind of slipped my mind. But I have it now, so yay!

4. Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta (free e-book)Beyond the Veil_bookcover

This is one of my Bookbub downloads (most of you know how dangerous it is for TBRs!) and since I have City of Fae by the same author, I thought it would be a good idea to get one of her other books too. Plus, it was free, so…

5. The Lying Game by Sara Shepard #3-6 (bought hardcovers)

This series is addicting! I had to buy the rest of the books in the series. (You can check out my review on the first book here.)

Maybe Someday_bookcover6. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover (bought paperback)

I really enjoyed Ugly Love (but not exactly as much as I hoped) and I want to give a try to CoHo’s other books. I’ve heard great things about this one, so when I saw this one on sale, I chose to buy it! ( I’ve heard great things about all her books though, so I guess I should keep my expectations low…

7. Confess by Colleen Hoover (bought paperback)Confess_bookcover

Another Colleen Hoover book that I’ve heard lots about. I’m not sure what exactly to expect anymore, because I don’t want to hope too high and be met with disappointment, but I guess I’ll just have to read it to see!

Never Never_bookcover Never Never Part 2_bookcover8. Never Never Books 1 & 2 by Colleen Hoover

And more Colleen Hoover books! Again, same reason for the other two books, and also because it had this wicked deal that got me both books in the Never Never duology(?)/trilogy(?) for a low price.

9. You’re the One that I Want by Giovanna Fletcher (bought paperback)You're the One that I Want_bookcover

I’ve been meaning to pick up some of Giovanna Fletcher’s books, and this seemed like a good place to start!

I Hunt Killers_bookcover10. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga (bought paperback)

This seems like an awesome book! Plus I’ve read great reviews on it, so when I saw it on sale in the bookstore, I grabbed it up!

 

 


So these are some of the most recent books that I recently hauled. What books have you recently gotten? Do you own any of these books? Tell me in the comments below or link your post!

Have a great Tuesday!
