I definitely thought this was going to be more fantasy based but I was so pleasantly surprised with this book. It had a Cruel Intentions feel and rich, vibrant characters. I got quite caught up in all the drama and the romance. The ending was extremely satisfying and I definitely will be rereading this in the future.

I sure have been bailing on a lot of books lately! But this one was only a random pick from my library so I had something to read on my break.

This is the 2nd book by this author I've tried and I had the same experience twice: the book sounds really cool but it just doesn't grab me. The other one I tried on audio and I thought it was the narrator I didn't like but I think now it's just this author's style or voice that doesn't do it for me.

I forgot to bring one of the many books I am already reading to work today. For a second there, I was worried about what I was going to read on my lunch break. Then I remembered I work in a library. Haha. 😁

Literally just checked my library holds status, went "oh good, my highest place on any of them is 2nd, I should have a week or two to focus on currently reading/owned tbr", and then got email notifying me my hold has been auto-checked out to me. #jinxedit

Looking forward to this one though (fantasy of manners! gorgeous cover!) so how can I mind.

shanaqui I really liked this one! 2y

I was astounded by the writing, though I had been expecting something different from the blurb. I was assuming I would be reading a paranormal romance, but instead I was greeted with something that felt like a historical romance set in a different yet familiar world. This story is also very character-driven, which was a pleasant change from my usual readings.

Antonina Beaulieu is having trouble attracting a suitable offer of marriage so she is sent to stay with her cousin and his wife, a leading socialite, in the city in the hope she will find a husband. There she meets Hector Auvray, a renowned telekinetic performer, & falls in love. But you know it isn‘t that simple, that‘s just where the story really gets going. Moreno-Garcia‘s writing is exquisite & I really enjoyed this book.

Ok, we interrupt today‘s current read to dive into an ARC that arrived in today‘s mail. I really enjoyed Moreno-Garcia‘s previous book, ‘Certain Dark Things‘ and have been looking forward to this one for some time. Thanks to St. Martin‘s Press for sending the book.

This is really quite different from Signal to Noise, and I liked it a lot more. I did find the misunderstandings painful, and I wish Valerie wasn't such a demon, but it worked out the way I hoped and I was hooked enough to read it in two sittings. (Received to review.)
