Happy Thursday!!!

I'm currently in my Hockey Era this week it appears. My scavenger hunt for the week was sports romance but I've not left the hockey world. I'm hoping to get a few more in before the end of the week. 

So far this week I've read: 

Icebreaker by Hanna Grace 
That One Night by Emily Rath 

Pucking Ever After by Emily Rath 
Pucking Around by Emily Rath

I may be slightly obsessed with Emily Rath's writing style and storytelling. I've been devouring the Jacksonville Rays series. I borrowed them on KU but ended up ordering them so I have the copies for my shelves. 

Currently reading 

The Game of Hearts by Courtney Millecam which releases tomorrow. I'm afraid to admit that I'm a little behind. Plus side I'll be done today and have my review posted for tomorrow. I'm loving it so far. 

Win the game, change your fate. Lose the game, lose your life.

When Alice Liddell runs away on the night of her engagement party and stumbles into a shadowy pub on a forgotten street, she thinks her life is ruined. Her parents are furious, her reputation is destroyed, and her fall from society will be printed in all of London’s gossip columns. Then a mysterious stranger gives her an unexpected solution to all of her problems: A yearly game inviting mortals into the land of Faerie to play the queen’s infamous Game of Hearts. To win is to gain a wish of your heart but to lose means sacrificing your freedom.

Alice quickly realizes the game is far more intricate and deadly than she was led to believe and teams up with the rebellious and irreverent cat-shifter Ches. Together they must outwit the other players by solving the obscure riddles given as clues and get out of the queen’s enchanted hedge maze unscathed. It also means staying far away from Maddox, the queen’s champion player and Alice’s fiercest competition. He’s determined to win at all costs, but Alice suspects his motives may not be his own.

The deeper Alice goes inside the world of cunning fae, bloodthirsty beasts, and vengeful queens, the more she fears that winning means betraying those closest to her. And in this Game of Hearts, Alice needs to guard hers.

This 1920's Alice in Wonderland reimagining is the second book in the Otherworlds Trilogy and is perfect for fans of fairytale retellings with dark twists, atmospheric settings, and slow burn romance that's swoony, not spicy.

What are you reading today?
