Glitter | Aprilynne Pike
40 posts | 38 read | 122 to read
From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Aprilynne Pike comes a truly original new novel "Breaking Bad" meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it s the eighteenth century and an almost-queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life. Outside the palace of Versailles, it s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it s the eighteenth century with the added bonus of technology to make court life lavish, privileged, and frivolous. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it s about to become a very beautiful prison. When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play . . . blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will marry the most ruthless and dangerous man of the court. She has six months to escape her terrifying destiny. Six months to raise enough money to disappear into the real world beyond the palace gates. Her ticket out? Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. Addicted to a drug Dani can sell for more money than she ever dreamed. But in Versailles, secrets are impossible to keep. And the most dangerous secret falling for a drug dealer outside the palace walls is one risk she has to take."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I loved this book! It had everything from ball gowns, betrayal, friendship, romance, and drugs made in the form of makeup! I am so glad I picked this out and bought the sequel. Cannot wait to keep reading more of this world!

I finally got myself a book light! 📖😌 We've had rainy weather and I love just sitting listening to the rain and reading without all the lights on.

Redfae Silly question but how does it work? Do you clip it onto the book? X 1y
KateReadsYA Haha yeah sorry my finger is covering where it grips onto the book! It's super flexible so bends to accommodate where you want the light. I actually got it from Target. 1y

Honestly I grabbed this because of the cover art and lived the story, espionage, royalty, technology, "hidden worlds" this one really has it all.

Among the many tidbits shared with the teens in my ambassador program, Aprilynne Pike says she keeps only about 20k of every 60k words she writes and her books play out as movies in her mind.

If you are looking for something different this is it! A dystopian where a company has become it's own country and owns the Palace of Versailles. Inside everyone dresses and has the social rules of the 1700s. Our main character wants out of this word. She decides to sell a drug called glitter hidden in makeup to make enough money to escape. I enjoy a morally grey character and seeing a decline instead of a rise is great sometimes!

RaimeyGallant Scary premise! 4y

I made it 100 pages in and just couldn't. I didn't like any of the characters and it took wayyy too long for the author to get anywhere close to the set up of the plot. The idea seemed really cool but it just wasn't executed right. #bail #springreads #dnf

Put Throne of Glass back on the shelf, I'm in the mood for mystery and thriller right now so I'm moving on to the next book in my #tbr pile. Seems like historical fiction mixed with mystery and thrills. I'm so down. Plus I've never read any #aprilynnepike before. #springreads #noreaster4 #snowneedstogosomewhere

introvertedbooks @Reading-In-The-Wings I will. So far it seems like a science fiction thing. Idk how to explain the genre but I'm hooked. 5y

While an interesting story, I found myself despising Dani, and despising the main character is just no good.

What the hell?! *Cries* why do I let authors do this to me?! I need Shatter now! Come on!

PS...there may be a cliffhanger 🙄🙄🙄 may

I don't know how I didn't see the ending coming! It made sense but Danica seemed so sure...which I guess rubbed off on me. This was really interesting!

Damn it, I need the sequel! February 2018 is so far away! 😭😭😭😭😭

I feel as if I need to hire someone who's full time job will be researching books I want to read and warning me if they're the first in a series or duology.
Any takers?
And oh yeah, this is the first of a duology... things are NOT resolved *grumble grumble*

Today's #library #bookhaul! Has anyone read The Waves? It's my lunchtime book club pick for next month, and the description said it was Woolf's most "experimental" novel. Having never read any Virginia Woolf, I have no clue what that means!

I kinda went crazy buying books! This is just part of my #bookhaul. The other half should be coming some time next week. The cover of Glitter drew me in instantly as I wandered the aisles at B&N. I admit I'm a sucker that way. It did get mixed reviews but the plot sounds interesting so I'm going to give it a try! #bookmail #tbrpile

Loved, loved, loved this book! A little sci-fi mixed with historical fiction and just a touch of romance. The characters were fascinating and fully developed. The setting. The costumes. The twists and turns. Cannot wait for more!

First free book of the conference :)
~ Outside the Palace of Versailles, it's modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it's the 18th century. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it's about to become a beautiful prison.

We'll see how it is!
