Happy Monday! Once again, Monday has arrived. And with it, lots of exciting news. In addition to the normal reading update, today I will be including some extra information so make sure to read until the end to find out about that!
Currently, I am reading two books. I am reading The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins and Ruined by M.C. Frank. So far, I am loving both of these books and I look forward to finishing them
When a strange beast terrorizes the kingdom of Lochlanach, fear stirs revolt. In an act of desperation, a proclamation is sent to all of Eurona—kill the creature and win the ultimate prize: the daughter of King Lochson’s hand in marriage. Princess Aerity knows her duty to the kingdom but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger... until a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention. There’s no denying the unspoken lure between them... or his mysterious resentment. Paxton is not the marrying type. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He’s determined to keep his focus on the task at hand—ridding the kingdom of the beast—but the princess continues to surprise him, and the perilous secrets he’s buried begin to surface.
The duke of Ashton sits at the Opera at Vauxhall Gardens, bored out of his mind, and plans murder.
He curses the day that brought the little governess, destitute and sad, at his door eight months ago, to upset his careless if a bit meaningless existence.
How could he have guessed the terrible, evil secrets she was hiding? And now that he knows all, the truth appears wilder, even more despicable than even he could have imagined. He hadn’t counted on losing his heart to her, of course, but he did. What he doesn’t know is that a tendril of the shadows of madness and sin that followed Beatrice to his door is still out there, looking for something to devour. The only one who can save him from the darkness is the girl herself, but he knows he’ll never see her again. He who once prided himself on his indifference to other human beings, feels his chest constrict with pain every time he even thinks of her. Beatrice, smart, gentle, kind-hearted, lovely. Ruined. A perfect blend of darkness and light, this Regency reverse retelling of Jane Eyre will break your heart as well as uplift it.
I currently have a giveaway going on on my Instagram (@shoshireads). There are some pretty awesome prizes to win, so be sure to check that out!
Today has been a very busy day on my blog! I had a cover reveal for Undone by Wendy Higgins and I had a post for the release day for The Struggle. Here are the links to both of them:

Ruined sounds interesting. I came to the Jane Eyre party a bit late, but I can certainly see all the possibilities for re-telling the story!

I remember really not liking Jane Eyre in school, so this retelling could either save it, or just reaffirm why I hated it so much! ;-)

Ruined sounds good. I'm joining up in the fun again and I'm hoping you'll stop by to my new domain.

I read Jane Eyre twice and saw various movie versions of it so RUINED appeals to me. The premise of the book sounds really good!

Both of these books sound so good!! I am adding them to my TBR for sure!
