Cover Reveal and Excerpt: The Theft of Sunlight by Intisar Khanani

Hello, friends! Today, I am very excited to promote the cover reveal AND share an excerpt for Intisar Khanani’s next book The Theft of Sunlight! This is the first book in a companion duology to her debut YA fantasy fairytale retelling Thorn. You can read my review of Thorn right here.

Check out this very intriguing synopsis for The Theft of Sunlight!

I did not choose this fate. But I will not walk away if I can make a difference.

Children have been disappearing from Menaiya for longer than Amraeya ni Ansarim can remember. When her best friend’s sister disappears, Rae knows she can’t stay silent any longer. She finds the chance to make a difference in an invitation to the palace.

But Rae struggles to fit in with the lords and ladies of the court. Instead, she finds unexpected help in a rough-around-the-edges thief named Bren who always seems to have her best interests at heart. Soon even Bren can’t help her, and Rae must risk her life and well-being to face an evil that lurks in the shadows of the darkest hearts.

If you want a sneak peek into Rae, you can read the short story The Bone Knife that is included in copies of Thorn. Or you could purchase an e-book for $2.99! Choose your retailer here. And be sure to add The Theft of Sunlight on GoodReads.

Backlist Blast #1: Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Hello, friends! I’m trying out another new blog meme today called Backlist Blast.

Backlist Blast is a weekly book meme which was created by Milana @ A Couple Reads and Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile, and is meant to encourage book bloggers to feature and talk about backlist books (meaning books that were published 6 months before your post goes live, or earlier). The main purpose of this meme is to talk about those books and get excited about them (and ideally pick them up and read them). Another purpose is for readers to find out about awesome backlist books that they might have never heard of before!
