I loved Bitter Greens, and this Kate Forsyth novel was just as enchanting.

I won Under the Never Sky in a giveaway from Danielle @ Love At First Page, and thank you to Hachette Australia for an ecopy of Red Queen!

One of my first cousins got married on Saturday and it was a beautiful wedding! The reception was at The Ivy ballroom which was nice, and it was a great time to catch up with the rest of the family (and there sure was a lot of people!). There was even a photo booth, which is always fun as well :)

How has your week been?

  7. The Wild Girl was immediately going to be added to my TBR just because of the cover (I am that shallow) and then I read the synopsis. Well duh. I need to read that, eventually!

    I hope you continue to enjoy The Red Queen :)

    Have a wonderful week!

    1. Don't worry, I add books to my TBR because of the cover all the time (it can really make it too hard to resist!) Any of Kate Forsyth's novels are amazing, and The Wild Girl follows in that pattern. Hope you have a lovely week too :)
