Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! This week’s feature, I am super pumped about! I remember requesting this when I heard about it early this year, and thinking that I would never in a thousand years receive an ARC (physical OR digital) for it. But luck was on my side, and I am very happy and humbled to have been sent an ARC for this amazing-sounding book! I’ve read a number of Holly Black’s titles before, and loved every single one. I love her writing, and her imagination, and I cannot wait to dive into this, her newest book, The Cruel Prince! Also, I wanted to let all of you know, that I am actually hosting a giveaway for this ARC that I’m featuring, which will be running until midnight EST on December 31st! It is international, so anyone can enter! Good luck!
For those of you coming across this meme for this first time, it was originally created by Krysti at YA and Wine, and hosted by her, and Sarah at The Clever Reader. Due to personal circumstances, however, they have had to let it go. We were all very sad to see the meme go, but then Krysti asked me if I wanted to take it over, and I said yes!
For those of you unfamiliar with #ARCstravaganza, it’s a meme meant to encourage book bloggers to show off and discuss their ARCs (advanced reader copies)! If this sounds like something for you, please check out the info page about the meme here. Another change is that #ARCstravaganza participants can share their posts on their blogs, Instagram, or Twitter (or all three)! Please just be sure to tag your social media posts with the hashtag, or share a link to your blog post on my blog post for each week, so that we can find it!

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
