Uh, so I love this book and when I saw it at Half-Price Books for a whopping $3.49 I immediately knew I needed to save this book and give it a home :) I read this book on the plane to Florida this past April...bad idea in hindsight...very, very bad. I ended up legitimately sobbing on the plane. I had to put my sunglasses on to avoid the obviousness of my tears. It was horrible. But horrible in a way that was so good. This book is amazing. Check it out. So unique. Such brilliant writing. It was one of those books that as I was crying, I was trying to stop crying but pausing my reading...didn't work. The tears literally were just pouring down my face...oofta.
I am SO excited to read this. Heard more than a number of amazing things about this. Renaissance-Uh duh! Italy--Double duh! Pretty dresses and Venetian masks--Squeel!! So excited!! I was in Venice last year and want to go back sooooo badly!! This will not help my travelling desire but I just don't care. Hope it lives up to my expectations :)
I got this from NetGalley (yay for being approved!) It is something toooootally out of my YA genre that I feel most comfortable in but Ann Aguirre (Author of the Razorland series) posted about this book on Twitter saying how good it was so I'm gonna give it a try. I am excited to get out of my YA comfort zone and read a more adult-esque book. I'll let you guys know how it turns out :)
That's my haul ladies and gents! Can't wait to see yours!!
Peace and love! :)
