Title: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.
Frightened and alone, Enne has only one lead: the name Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless Mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
And she’ll need to play.

As you may know, I am a HUGE Sarah J.Maas fan… although I am yet to read Tower of Dawn and Kingdom of Ash but I promise I love her work I just suck at smashing my TBR pile.
Sarah for me, is an author I love because I find her writing consistenly great. She is an author that some love and some hate but for me I know I will always easily fall into her world. I lose myself in her writing style and characters so easily so when I heard she was bringing out another fantasy series I was SO happy. This is actually going to be her first ever adult fantasy series and today the title has been revealed, are you ready…
Drum Roll Please…

One Life to One Dawn.
In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster.

Well what a starter headline that is… am I right?
I’ve been in and out of blogging for what probably is about a year now.
I said I would do better and I never did, frankly life is CRAZY but I won’t bore you with the details of why I left again. What I will say is how my new job makes my brain somewhat broken, which is what left me to the discovery of how I was once a reading snob… which probably isn’t the right term for it really, but read on and you’ll hopefully understand what I mean.

Today I want to do a post on Why do we avoid big books? This discussion post was actually inspired by another discussion post I read by Nyx on ‘Does the length of the book matter.’ This was such a brilliant discussion post and it got me thinking about big books and if we all avoid them.

Romance reads are a huge love of mine. There is nothing better than a good romance book or even movie for that matter. I am probably in the 0.2% here but I have to have a little bit of romance in my fantasy and dystopian books as well otherwise I really struggle to get into them. That is something that not everybody loves and everybody has their own feelings about them, to me it just adds that little something more to the story.
I am always being asked by my friends to recommend a good romance to them so I decided it is about time I do a My Top Ten Romance Reads post for those wanting to find there next good love story!
