Belladonna
Belladonna | Adalyn Grace
A girl confronts Death--and her own deathly powers--in this Gothic-infused, romantic young adult fantasy. Nineteen-year-old Signa Farrow, orphaned as a baby, has been raised by a string of guardians, each more interested in her wealth than her well-being--and each has met an untimely end. Her last remaining relatives are the Hawthornes, an eccentric family living at the glittering and gloomy estate of Thorn Grove. Thorn Grove's patriarch, Elijah, mourns his late wife, Lillian, through wild parties and drink, while eldest son Percy grapples for control of the family's waning reputation and daughter Blythe suffers from the same mysterious illness that killed her mother. And when Lillian's spirit confronts Signa and claims she was poisoned, Signa realizes that Blythe could be next to die. Signa's best chance of uncovering the culprit and solving Lillian's murder is an alliance with Death himself--the very man she hates most. And Death, that fascinating, dangerous shadow who has never been far from her side, shows her that their connection may be more powerful than she ever dared imagine.

It‘s 18 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside so what better way to start the morning with a book about a “gothic-infused world of wealth, desire, and betrayal” before venturing outside…no better way! Ive seen this one on at least one end of year “best of” list so I‘m hoping for an entertaining read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Belladonna” was a dark yet interesting read. I enjoyed the plot and the romance, and the murder mystery made it even better. I surprisingly did not see the plot twist/culprit coming, and the epilogue sets up for the next book in the series. I‘m not sure if I will end up reading the second book, but this one was a solid fall read.

I'm super excited to start reading this book! An orphan who has been followed by death her whole life, a murder, a house full of ghosts, plus a romance? It sounds like a fantastic gothic fantasy and I'm 100% here for that.

It was quite hard to relate to them when you knew so little about them.

This was an atmospheric book and that I loved. I loved the beginning and was intrigued but soon found out how the rest of the book didn't really deliver what I had expected. Soon this started to feel boring & un-mysterious because nothing really happened.

This was okay but not at all that awesome that I thought this would be.

The whole book is a vibe, from the gorgeous cover to the spooky gothic mystery. The premise was absolutely intriguing and the story did not disappoint. I could easily put myself into any of the characters places and, as a cozy mystery reader, the mystery was solid.

Sooo....I kinda met Adalyn Grace randomly at a coffee shop before YALLfest starts.

Was grabbing an iced mocha at a coffee shop that's hosting Victoria Aveyards signing. I saw a lady walk in and I saw a YALLfest badge around her neck and went to ask her about where the line starts. Turns out it wasn't a volunteer badge but an author badge, having never seen Adalyn Grace I didn't know what she looked like... Had a nice 20 minute conversation.

julesG What a happy coincidence. 3w

October Reading Progress is minimal 😅

I keep book hopping, so I'm not very far in to any of the books yet. However, I'm really liking Belladonna.

I'll most likely slide right into #NeilGaimanNovember with Trigger Warning and Good Omens

Just a quick stack of my recent book mail; I can sense my future reading will be very spooky indeed 👻🎃

Soubhiville Where did you buy your copy of The Golden Enclaves? Mine has a black spine and it makes me sad that it doesn‘t match my other two with the gold spines. 2mo
Soubhiville BTW I‘m almost done with it and it‘s so good! 2mo
Cailey_Mac @Soubhiville it‘s from Waterstones! It‘s the one with the eye stenciled edges, I‘m not sure if they have any left but hopefully they do! 2mo
Soubhiville I‘ll look for it, thank you! 2mo
Cailey_Mac @Soubhiville no worries! 2mo

”All those I touch,” Death whispered, “die.” His other hand pressed against her cheek suddenly, and he breathed out a wondrous sigh so heavy that Signa‘s entire body warmed. “Except for you, Signa Farrow. When I touch you, I feel you. On you, my influence is temporary.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's been a while since I've enjoyed a YA book as much as this one. I loved the romance and gothic vibes, mixed with paranormal elements.

Review from #AugustARCs about a month late 🙄🙄🙄

The audiobook of this YA gothic/paranormal fantasy novel was good, but the story was a bit long-winded for my taste. There was too much woe-be-me by the main character Signa. The mysteries were, given I had paid attention from the start, obvious to me.

If you liked Kingdom of the Wicked, you will certainly like this book. After all, it's a story of romance between a not-so-mere mortal and Death.

Velvetfur Great cover though isn't it 😊 2mo
julesG @Velvetfur Changed the picture, I like the UK cover (left) more. 2mo

Here‘s the 🫖

I absolutely love this book! I read an early copy last fall & currently in the middle of a reread for my book club on Instagram since we‘re discussing it Friday. I love when books do these fun designs on the case and I honestly believe this book is just as beautiful on the inside as out - so I approve any judging a book based on cover in this event 😂

JamieArc Glad to see this review! I almost bought it last weekend because the hard copy was so gorgeous but wondered about the actual story. 2mo
TheBookKeepers Yes! I definitely recommend! 💕 @JamieArc 2mo
Velvetfur That's such a lovely photo 😊 2mo

I‘d like to take this opportunity to introduce my next read. Isn‘t she absolutely gorgeous?! I will not lie, I haven‘t a clue what this book is about. I saw the inside cover on Booktok and immediately went to Barnes and Noble for this exclusive edition. I have zero regrets on the matter. It‘s just too damned pretty to have any buyers remorse.

This book is so pretty and the story within is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I loved this read, romance, suspense, paranormal elements and a FMC who was strong and one you‘ll want to take the journey with. Can‘t wait for the next book!

Hi 👋. It's been so long since I have been on here that I would be surprised if people knew who I was still. I had a very painful book slump that lasted 6 months. I am finally out of it (thank god) so I'm going to try to be better at posting now. I have also changed what genres I want to read right now. Horror & gothic are the main ones now. Just wanted to share my newest book. It's gorgeous 😍.

TrishB My daughter brought this last week, it‘s lovely ♥️ 3mo
tracy.anne8 @TrishB It looks like a really good story too. I hope she enjoys it! 3mo

I pre-ordered the British edition of this book because I couldn't pass up the pretty purple cover. I was so happy to see the actual book itself is a gorgeous deep purple with the title foiled in purple on the spine. 💜💜

I've been waiting for a book that completely swept me away for a while & it's finally here. I absolutely loved the supernatural mystery side of things. Signa (I kept misreading her name as Sigma) is one of those main characters that starts off a bit annoying but then grows on you. (Continues in comments)

4.5🌟

OutsmartYourShelf Now love triangles are not one of my favourite tropes by a long shot, & yes, the romance was a little “OMG he's so hot“ (there are a couple of quite steamy sex scenes in the book), & there are some problematic aspects. As characters though, both Sylas (handsome stable boy) & Death (yes, Death is one of the trio) were rather intriguing. 3mo
OutsmartYourShelf Overall the mystery element & the writing won out over the romance for me, even though I did guess the guilty party & the twist. 4.5 stars (rounded up)

My thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Hodder & Stoughton, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley
