Waiting on Wednesday: The Glittering Court

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
Pub. Date: April 12, 2016


Goodreads says, "Big and sweeping, spanning the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.  Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies capable of arranging powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court. When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together, they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first, as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and later, when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor. But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands."

Guys, I love Richelle Mead and her Vampire Academy series will always be one of my favorites. I am looking forward to checking out her new series.  What do you guys think?

  1. Oh this book sounds so good. I liked Richelle's VA series but I want to try something else by her because I want to LOVE her books. The cover is neat too- the girl is definitely hardcore staring at you haha!

  2. I am definitely willing to give it a chance. Maybe I'll like it more than Soundless (which was good but not what I expected from Mead)

    1. I didn't bother picking up Soundless, because the premise didn't really suck me in. I will keep my eye out for your review. Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  9. I've just never got around to The Vampire Academy books. I've debated picking up the first book, but the series is SO long...and I just know it's never going to happen. This sounds pretty interesting, though, maybe I'll read this one instead of going into her backlog. Hope you love it as much as her others!
