Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
I said I would get into doing more of these, about twice a month, but this is already my second one of this month and looking at my plan for the rest of the month I already have a book planned for every Wednesday this week.
I was really excited about this book. I even requested it on NetGalley, but I never got approved for it. It never got declined either. It’s still just sitting there waiting for someone to make a choice either way. I suppose it’s a little late now … especially since it was released last week.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. I should probably tell you what Can’t Wait Wednesday is first. Briefly, Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s book is Court of Miracles by Kester Grant
Release Date: 2nd June 2020
Les Misérables meets Six of Crows in this page-turning adventure as a young thief finds herself going head to head with leaders of Paris’s criminal underground in the wake of the French Revolution.
In the violent urban jungle of an alternate 1828 Paris, the French Revolution has failed and the city is divided between merciless royalty and nine underworld criminal guilds, known as the Court of Miracles. Eponine (Nina) Thénardier is a talented cat burglar and member of the Thieves Guild. Nina’s life is midnight robberies, avoiding her father’s fists, and watching over her naïve adopted sister, Cosette (Ettie). When Ettie attracts the eye of the Tiger–the ruthless lord of the Guild of Flesh–Nina is caught in a desperate race to keep the younger girl safe. Her vow takes her from the city’s dark underbelly to the glittering court of Louis XVII. And it also forces Nina to make a terrible choice–protect Ettie and set off a brutal war between the guilds, or forever lose her sister to the Tiger.
