Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

This is the story of what happened first…

Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.

Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.

They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.

They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices

🌸 Hi guys, I hope you’re having an incredible day. I’m so excited to be sharing another year with you on the blog, it really makes me happy, I feel that we have all grown up and learned a lot in 2018 together and I’m so honestly excited to start 2019 and continue sharing our love for books (I love you guys, I get all emotional lol).
Well so, here we are, a new year and a new month where I’ll show you all the books I plan to read during January.
As you know I’ve established, for the first time, a series of goals that I want to accomplish this year, one of them is to prioritize my ARCs so there will be a lot of them here in my TBR for this month, but I also have a super exciting sequel and a re -read that needed to happen!.
I plan to read 6 books, I’m very satisfied with my list, I think if I can read them all, then be a wonderful way to start my year in terms of readings. So without further ado, I’m super excited to tell you what I’ll be reading, so let’s START! 🌸 Continue reading

📖  Hi guys!, I hope you’re having an incredible day, getting ready to start an amazing new year, from here, from my little place in the world, I wish you many successes, love, health and work, in this new year that begins. I know that all of you are capable to achieve all your goals!
In other news, here we are, and I come to tell you all about my readings of the month, or failing that, the lack of them lol.
This month I decided not to do a TBR, I honestly knew that I wouldn’t have much time to read and also I didn’t feel like reading anything specific, so this seemed like a good idea at the time. The good thing is, that I realized that I LOVE and I NEED my TBR, they help me to keep reading, no doubt. The bad thing is, that I’ve read almost nothing and I’m pretty disappointed about it. Although, what I read was good, I expected to do a better job, even more when I was participating in a Read-a-thon as incredible as the Short-a-thon, but well, life got in the way and the results aren’t that good 📖  Continue reading

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
