Cover Reveal: The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee


The first time I heard about The Thousandth Floor was when it was announced that Greg Berlanti and "Witches of East End" creator Maggie Friedman are adapting the upcoming book series for ABC. It was described as a futuristic year 2118-set drama that takes place in a thousand-story supertower on Manhattan's Upper East Side where a young woman's fall from the 1,000th floor ignites a scandal that ensnares the top-floor elite and the bottom-floor drones. It intrigued me right away and now the cover has finally been revealed.






New York City as you've never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.


A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

Leda Cole's flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

Eris Dodd-Radson's beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

Rylin Myers's job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?

Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he's hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….


The Thousandth Floor will be released August 30, 2016. If you don’t want to wait until then you can read the first four chapters right here!

Review: The Anatomy of Jane by Amelia LeFay

The Anatomy of Jane by Amelia LeFay

Series: WJM

Jane

I've always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.

Max

Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it's because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I'm honest no matter what story I report on. I'm honest about everything but the man I've been f**king for the last four years… and now her.

Wesley

First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.

THREE PEOPLE.

ONE LOVE STORY….

I've never enjoyed any of the books that I've read involving a ménage à trois. It tends to be only about the steamy scenes with little to no story keeping it together. The only reason I thought I'd give it another chance is the author, Amelia LeFay, J.J. McAvoy's pen name. Black Rainbow, Sugar Baby Beautiful and That Thing Between Eli & Gwen are some of my favourite contemporary romances. If anyone can make me invested in a storyline involving a ménage à trois, it would be her or it's just not possible.

Apparently it's possible because I loved it.

The characters were very real to me. They each had a back story that make you understand who they are and the reasoning behind their actions.

I adore Jane. Everything that's happened to her could of made her so hard and heartless, but she's not. She's understandably pessimistic, hard-working, caring and very sassy.

I wasn't sure about Max in the beginning, but I grew to love him. He's rich, powerful and his cockiness was very repelling at first. Those moments of vulnerability that he shows and wouldn't want anyone to know existed and his story were what made me see past the cockiness to the point I like it now. My heart really softened towards him as the story progressed.

Wesley is cocky like Max, but in loveable way from the start. He moved across the world to be with Max, which would sound crazy if anyone else did it, but felt like typical Wesley to me even after knowing him for such a short time. He came across as a very passionate person who puts all of himself into everything he does.

I love this story and became so invested in it and its characters. The steamy scenes were amazing, but so was the story, which is what a lot of stories involving a ménage à trois lack. It was fast-paced, but never felt rushed. I could of read this book from start to finish at once, but wanted to prolong the inevitable end.

I'm very anxious to find out how the story continues.

Cover Reveal: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess


Since I read the synopsis and added it to my TBR list I've been on the lookout for the cover of A Shadow Bright and Burning to be revealed. Behold the gorgeous cover...


I am Henrietta Howel.
The first female sorcerer in hundreds of years.
The prophesied one.
Or am I?


Henrietta Howel can burst into flames.
Forced to reveal her power to save a friend, she’s shocked when instead of being executed, she’s invited to train as one of Her Majesty’s royal sorcerers.

Thrust into the glamour of Victorian London, Henrietta is declared the chosen one, the girl who will defeat the Ancients, bloodthirsty demons terrorizing humanity. She also meets her fellow sorcerer trainees, handsome young men eager to test her power and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her.

But Henrietta Howel is not the chosen one.
As she plays a dangerous game of deception, she discovers that the sorcerers have their own secrets to protect. With battle looming, what does it mean to not be the one? And how much will she risk to save the city—and the one she loves?

Exhilarating and gripping, Jessica Cluess's spellbinding fantasy introduces a powerful, unforgettably heroine, and a world filled with magic, romance, and betrayal. Hand to fans of Libba Bray, Sarah J. Maas, and Cassandra Clare.

I remember the first time I read the synopsis for A Shadow Bright and Burning I thought it had a Grisha vibe, specifially a similarity between Henrietta and Alina from the Grisha Trilogy because Henrietta reveals her power in order to save a friend. I was immediately drawn to that and the Victoria setting. It isn't a setting I'm use to and interested in the combination of a world of magic and Victorian London. Can't wait to start this series!

What do you think about the cover?
