By Evelyn Skye
Release Date: 5/17/16
Published by Balzar + Bray

Goodreads Description
Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.
And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.
Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?
For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.
And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love . . . or be killed himself.
As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear . . . the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.

Joy
Which book brings you the most joy?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas hands down. This book has the power to kill any fangirl heartache of mine and replace it with intense feels that cause me even more soul crushing pain, but it’s happy pain. Yes, well I’m well aware I’m strange, but…eh!

Goodreads Description
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.
Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.
Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.
Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous—it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost, Da’s death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself may crumble and fall.

A Baby Book Blogger I Am

Claire is a baby book blogger. I am a baby book blogger. I started blogging on September 20th and so far, the whole blogging process has been wonderful. The first time, in the summer of this year (2015) I actually started a book blog, and it was a real crappy one. It had a bad design, bad name, I put up posts everyday, but never scheduled them so they weren’t released until the middle of the day. Along with that, I had like 2 followers in the whole 2 months I had been blogging. It gave me no motivation to keep blogging. Plus, I was convinced writing lengthy reviews about books was the right thing to do. It can be, but for me it wasn’t because, well posts are just what you want to say. Not necessarily what people want, and if they don’t like what you have to say, then screw them.
