Midnight Beauties (ARC) by Megan Shepherd

The witches, beasties, goblins, and Royals return in this spellbinding conclusion to New York Times best-selling author Megan Shepherd’s Grim Lovelies duology, released in North America on August 13th, 2019. Wicked and delightful, this spellbinding sequel and conclusion to Grim Lovelies is perfect for fans of The Cruel Prince and The Hazel Wood.

DISCLAIMER: Thank-you to Raincoast Books for providing me with an Advance Readers’ Edition of Midnight Beauties by Megan Shepherd, in exchange for an honest review. 

Ever since she discovered her affinity for magic, seventeen-year-old Anouk has been desperate to become a witch. It’s the only way to save her friends who, like Anouk, are beasties: animals enchanted into humans. But unlike Anouk, the other beasties didn’t make it out of the battle at Montélimar in one piece. With her friends now trapped in their animal forms, Anouk is forced into a sinister deal involving a political marriage with her sworn enemy, a wicked plot to overthrow London’s fiercest coven of witches, and a deadly trial of fire to become a witch. The price for power has always been steep in the world of the Haute. Now, it will cost Anouk everything.

July 2019 Reading Wrap-Up

At the beginning of July, I set myself quite the ambitious reading goal – my Reading List for July 2019 included 10 books. And while the beginning of July means the beginning of “summer vacation” for myself and countless other teachers, my summer certainly has not been all relaxation! Like many of my fellow teachers, a large portion of my summer has been dedicated to my part-time job, and another large portion to an online course I was taking (and have thankfully completed).

Despite all that, I clearly found enough time to read, because I managed to read eight books during the month of July! This bring my reading total for the year up to 46/50 books, which puts me 17 books ahead of schedule – and only 4 books away from achieving my reading goal for 2019!
