I hope you’re all having a fantastic Monday!
I’ve spent the last week avoiding my TBR and rereading Harry Potter and despite Order of the Phoenix breaking my heart last night, the reread has been the best thing for my mental health. I’ve enjoyed reading this series and I can’t wait to finish the last 2 books.
As you’re all aware, today is Monday (at least it still is in the States) meaning it Goodreads Monday! For those of you not familiar with this meme, Goodreads Mondays originated on Lauren’s Page Turners’ blog. To participate, you just showcase a random book from your Goodreads page.
Title: The Shadows Between Us
Author: Tricia Levenseller
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Publication Date: February 25, 2020
Genre(s): Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:
1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.
No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.
But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?
This book sounds so freaking good! This is one of those book box books I’m so excited to get to. I think the plot sounds super interesting and I am a sucker for darker romances. Having enjoyed Levenseller’s work in the past, I hope I like this one as well. Though the short nature of the book has me a bit nervous. I’m hoping to get to this one in May!
