Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren @Page Turner, and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!
This week I have chosen:
Title: A Crown of Wishes (The Star-Touched Queen #2)
Author: Roshani Chokshi (Goodreads Author)
Published: March 28th 2017 by St. Martin’s Griffin
From the author of The Star-Touched Queen comes a beautiful lush fantasy, Roshani Chokshi’s A Crown of Wishes.
Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes – a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.
Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.
Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
I just finished The Star-Touched Queen last night, and I loved it! One of the best books I’ve read so far in 2018, and as I’ve only read 9 books there hasn’t been much competition. In the first book we got a small glimpse of Gauri and what she is up to, so I am very excited to read a book just on her journey! I do hope that Maya and Amar show up at some point!
What is on your TBR shelf this week?
