Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about those books on our wishlist that we want so badly but are still so very far away.  Those books that we’d do anything for to be able to read them today, right now, pretty please. Yet, they are so far away, there’s not even covers or titles for some of these.

These are the books I want so badly that I might consider selling my soul for. Or probably something less drastic like give up the internet (say what?) or stop eating sugar (say what again?).

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s all about my favorite authors I discovered in 2017. I’m kind of a creature of habit and don’t often pick up books by authors I don’t really know but I’ve been working on that. Even so, I didn’t think I’d get to ten, but I did easily so yay me!

Also, 100 points for you if you can already guess my MOST FAVORITE OF FAVORITES, my most dear author discovery of the year before scrolling to the bottom of this post 😉

My rating in words: LOVED this book!

What it’s about:

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.
