This year, in an effort to blog more, to become more involved with the blogging community, and to keep up with the latest publications, I thought I’d create a monthly post about the ARCs I’ve received. These ARCs will be read and reviewed a month prior to the publishing date. The Advance Excitement at a Glance posts will feature one or two (or more, depending on what happens this year) books to look forward to, and it will motivate me to keep my to-read list on track.
Last month, I read several ARCs, including Always Emily and Solsbury Hill (many more reviews are on their way, too! March was a busy reading month). This month is another jam-packed reading session, but I’m really excited about these two books in particular. Note the “lost” theme!
Dragged on a family trip to Europe’s ancient cities, Becca wants nothing more than to go home. Trapped with her emotionally distant father, over-eager stepmother, and a brother who only wants to hook up with European hotties, Becca is miserable. That is until she meets Nikolai, a guy as mysterious as he is handsome. And she unknowingly finds herself with a runaway prince.
Becca has a difficult time enjoying a family vacation in Europe until she meets Nikolai, a prince who has fled his kingdom and enjoys a personal European tour undercover. But Becca’s vacation is ending soon, and Nikolai’s guards are constantly searching for him — what will they do?
Cute, light, fluffy, and European — I’m down for that! It sounds fun and adventurous.
The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan
(Delacorte Press, May 13)
Ingrid and Gabby survived the Underneath. They saved their brother, Grayson, from a future of dark servitude and exposed a plot to undermine the Alliance. But danger still lurks in the streets of Paris, and the Dispossessed, perched on the city’s bridges and rooftops, might not be able to save their human wards this time.
I’m not even going to give a summary, because I know I’m going to love this book just as much as I loved the first. Oh, Luc. Gimme gimme gimme.
What books are you looking forward to in May? Got any ARCs you’d like to share the excitement over?
