Happy release week to @amandafoody! This gorgeous book released today!! Circusy/carnival atmospheres are my absolute favourite to read so I'm super pumped about this one! I'll drop the synopsis below! 🖤

Synopsis💜
A darkly irresistible new fantasy set in the infamous Gomorrah Festival, a traveling carnival of debauchery that caters to the strangest of dreams and desires.
🖤
Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.
💜
But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.
🖤
Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear. 💜

Do you ever take "me" days? I took a personal day today and I'm actually hiding under the covers reading all day. I've been going full speed ahead for weeks and I just really needed a time out. I need sleep and reading and sleep. 📚😴

#31daysofmadness Red Roses - artistic character - Catherine from Until It Fades. Her gingerbread house sketches were my favourite part of this book. 😍
#julyofdisney - Dishonour on your cow - character that disappointed me. I will preface by saying I loved this book and all of the characters but there was one moment where I found myself saying why Catherine why??? 😂

Are you a homebody or more of an always on the go type? I think I might be turning into a homebody. I seem to just be craving being at home more and more. I'm perfectly ok with it! I'm getting in lots of reading and Netflix binge time with my husband and furbabes. 😻

Which of the Court books was your favourite. I really loved ACOMAF the most I think but I did really enjoy getting to know more of the characters in ACOWAR. I'm thinking of doing a re-read this fall! I've only read each of them once. 😊

What are some of your favourite paperback covers? Sometimes I don't pay enough attention to my paperback shelf. I was re-arranging earlier and pulled this out. It's by far one of my favourite paperback covers! I read this quite a while ago but I really loved it. I've enjoyed all of Julie Johnson's books that I've read! 💙

#allthebooksjuly Recommend a book 📚

I loooove waking up to construction 5 feet from my front door! 😩 So noisy! I'm kind of thankful for once I'll be at the office today so I won't have to hear it 😂. I might need to go find some earplugs if this turns into more than one day of work! 😐
•
#hotjulyreads To Read Tuesday. I'm going to be honest this was originally a cover buy but the story sounds really good so I can't wait to pick it up! 🙃

What are your favourite summer reads? I always pick up at least one of Karina Halle's books in the summer! Heat Wave has been out for a while but I've been saving it 😂. I'm excited to pick it up. A steamy Hawaiian romance!? Yes please!! Ill drop the synopsis below. 🌺

Synopsis🌺
Still grieving the loss of her sister who died two years ago, the last thing Veronica "Ronnie" Locke needed was to lose her job at one of Chicago’s finest restaurants and have to move back in with her parents. So when a window of opportunity opens for her – running a kitchen at a small Hawaiian hotel – she’d be crazy not to take it.
🌺
The only problem is, the man running the hotel drives her crazy:
Logan Shephard.
It doesn’t matter that he’s got dark brown eyes, a tall, muscular build that’s sculpted from daily surfing sessions, and a deep Australian accent that makes your toes curl.
What does matter is that he’s a grump.
Kind of an asshole, too.
And gets under Ronnie’s skin like no one else.
🌺
But the more time Ronnie spends on the island of Kauai, falling in love with the lush land and its carefree lifestyle, the closer she gets to Logan. And the closer she gets to Logan, the more she realizes she may have pegged him all wrong. Maybe it’s the hot, steamy jungles or the invigorating ocean air, but soon their relationship becomes utterly intoxicating.
🌺
There’s just one major catch.
🌺
The two of them together would incite a scandal neither Ronnie, nor her family, would ever recover from.
🌺
Forbidden, Illicit, off-limits – sometimes the heat is worth surrendering to, even if you get burned.🌺
