Hi all! I’ve definitely been doing ever so slightly better with book buying, and this week I only gained two books. One was a gift and one I did treat myself to!
To all the world, Alizeh is a disposable servant, not the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom forced to hide in plain sight.
The crown prince, Kamran, has heard the prophecies foretelling the death of his king. But he could never have imagined that the servant girl with the strange eyes, the girl he can’t put out of his mind, would one day soon uproot his kingdom–and the world.
This one was the one I was gifted by the publisher, and I’m so excited for it! The author quotes on the proof copy really appealed to me and this one sounds like a great 2022 fantasy release.
Readers have been falling for the March family for over 150 years, and Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation is bringing the childhood classic to the big screen for a new generation of fans in 2019. Illustrated throughout with movie stills from the production—starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, and Chris Cooper—this edition of Little Women tells the timeless story of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy as they navigate hardship and adventure in post-Civil War Concord, Massachusetts.
I’ve wanted to pick up this copy of Little Women for a while (almost 2 years!) and I finally decided to purchase it. When you remove the half book jacket it’s so beautiful and is made to look like the version printed in the 2019 film. My copy also didn’t have Good Wives in it so I’m glad to have an edition that has both parts in it!
