Waiting On Wednesday [#32]

I’m am very excited about this book today guys. Very excited, I tell. I’d completely forgotten about it until I saw it on my list of books to be released and I gave my computer a look before dancing around my room.

This week I’m waiting on . . .


 Glitter by Aprilynne Pike

Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century.

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Pages: 384 {hardback} 

RELEASE DATE: 25th October 2016

// PRE-ORDER //

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 Summary]

I really think that this one does sound interesting. I think it’s going to have a fair dosage of spunk to it but also take a nicely fresh angle on things. The fact that it’s fantasy mixing in with frowned upon contemporary things, i.e. drug dealing, makes for an interesting combination. And let’s not get me started on the cover, I love it.

Aside from the blurb sounding awesome I want to read this anyway out of curiosity. I think it’ll be slightly different from everything else that I’m reading at the moment and I’ll be glad to give this one a go. Also, I’m not going to lie – the fact that Pike wrote this is 73% of the reason why I’m particularly interested in it.
