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!
📚 A book I’ve been meaning to read is… 📚
Released: January 15, 2019
No one believes in them. But soon no one will forget them.
It’s 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.
To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood.
Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history–but only if they can stay alive.
It’s still on my TBR because…
I’ve been seeing this book pop on my IG and Twitter feeds lately due to the sequel coming out next week. I’ve heard such great things about this book that I know I need to move this higher up on my TBR. Hoping I’ll get a chance to read this and the sequel this year to find out why everyone I know is so obsessed with it. 🙂
Should I still keep this on my TBR or forget about it?
