IT’S MONDAY and my first ever bookstagram picture! This is also my first week participating in this new meme about ARCs (which inspired me to do this photography) plus I’m so thrilled about the book I am sharing!! I was really blessed by a program I entered to “win” this ARC from First to Read Penguin Random House (thanks so much!!)
#ARCstravaganza is a weekly meme hosted by Krysti at YA and Wine and Sarah at The Clever Reader to give book bloggers/bookstagrammers a chance to show off those ARCs/eARCs/Galleys! Comment on their weekly posts with a link to your own #ARCstravaganza blog post, or post a pic on Instagram using the #ARCstravaganza hashtag, and you will be entered to win an ARC copy of an upcoming YA novel! One winner will be chosen at random each month!
The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana
So I have an Instagram account to follow other wonderfully talented bookstagramers but I’m not the best photographer so I haven’t done
much anything with it myself! When I started reading about this new meme I knew I wanted to test myself by participating… so please don’t laugh be kind in the comments for my first photo!
I was immediately attracted to this lovely cover and the intriguing title but then I read: “A romantic coming-of-age fantasy tale steeped in Indian folklore…” I ignored the books they tried to link to it so as not to be disappointed and totally requested it!!
About The Library of Fates
No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn’t enough.
The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.
Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?
