Genre: Teen Fiction
Release Date: October 25, 2016
The Overview: Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century—with the added bonus of technology to make court life lavish, privileged, and frivolous. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it’s about to become a very beautiful prison. When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play . . . blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will marry the most ruthless and dangerous man of the court. She has six months to escape her terrifying destiny. Six months to raise enough money to disappear into the real world beyond the palace gates. Her ticket out? Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. Addicted to a drug Dani can sell for more money than she ever dreamed. But in Versailles, secrets are impossible to keep. And the most dangerous secret—falling for a drug dealer outside the palace walls—is one risk she has to take. -Goodreads

Aprilynne Pike has always had a knack for telling lovely stories. My first introduction to her was her Wings series which was sweet and delightful. Glitter, on the other hand, seems to have a lot more grit. Like WAY more. And I have to admit I’m really intrigued. I won’t normally pick books that deal with drug use, preferring to read about dragons and whatnot, but I will definitely be checking out Glitter when it comes out in October. It won’t be the highest on my priority list, but I’d still like to read it just the same.
What book are you waiting on?
*Also, I have no idea what is going on with the font of this post, so I apologize… WordPress doesn’t even let you change the font, so how it’s different escapes me.
I already read this book and it was fantastic! My fav of Aprilynne for sure. And it does have a lot of more grit than Wings!

You know what they say about great minds. Hopefully it’s good!
This sounds very intriguing and not a long wait! I will keep an eye out for this one.
Definitely intriguing. :)
This sounds dark and delightful!
I didn’t love the Wings series, it was a little to happy-go-lucky for me but this sounds really, really good…I might have to pick it up!
Definitely! It seems to have the edge that wings lacked. I’m hopeful. :)
