  1. Aprilynne Pike has been spinning faerie stories since she was a child with a hyper active imagination At the age of twenty she received her BA in Creative Writing from Lewis Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho When not writing, Aprilynne can usually be found at the gym she also enjoys singing, acting, reading, and working with pregnant moms as a childbirth educator and doula Aprilynne currently lives with her husband and three kids in Utah, and dreams of warmer climates.Aprilynne Pike s 1 New York Times best selling debut, WINGS, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl with a not so ordinary destiny In this tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed foreverAprilynne s Facebook page facebook aprilynnepike

  2. I have no idea who this book will appeal to Maybe readers who enjoy fast paced well written ridiculous stories Because that s what it is Ridiculous I fell in love with Aprilynne Pike s Wings series, but this is nothing like that beautiful series For one, the world building doesn t make much sense So they re in this make believe Versailles palace with make believe gowns and make believe events, because that s how the King wants it.It s no historical fiction but it isn t a dystopian book either I [...]

  3. First of all, I really wanted to like this The premise sounded awesome There was a lot of potential for a different kind of story The setting is a futuristic society that uses robots but still wears fashions from the time of Marie Antoinette Danica is of very minor noble blood, but with her mother s help, secures a betrothal to a young King who is not likeable or decent She does not want to marry him and her only way out is to raise enough money to disappear Her mother and father are not good pe [...]

  4. The idea of a girl trafficking a deadly drug Glitter within an old fashioned Versailles set in a modern world sounded absurd enough that I had to see if that could actually be the story Turns out it s not the fun kind of absurd, though it s the WHY DOES THIS EXIST kind Everything kept getting worse and worse until I just wished I had called it a DNF.

    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestThat cliffhanger ending ugh I see now that it s a duology It s been a while since I visited this book s page clearly, because I was NOT expecting GLITER to end like that cliffhangery rageTo be honest, I wasn t expecting to get this engaged with GLITTER at all It was one of those ARCs I applied for on Netgalley on a whim I liked the cover, the premise sounded vaguely interesting, and I recognized the author Sometimes, that s all it takes to make me click that b [...]

  6. Uhhhhhhh That s all I have to say But I wouldn t mind a society where we all dress up Marie Antoinette style.

  7. I was sold at the tagline of Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette , but then I saw the cover and was even interested I love the idea of a modern society choosing to live like French society I liked Danica well enough She s not the best person in the world and knows what s she s doing is wrong, but chooses to continue to do it Yet, I can t find total fault with that I m sure I would do the same She s loyal to her friends, even though it doesn t look like it Molli and Lord Aaron were delightful ch [...]

  8. Mini review DNFI received this E ARC via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I was so looking forward to reading this It sounded wonderful But unfortunately I found it utterly boring I cannot bring myself to recommend it.

  9. I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review I went into this book blind, having no clue what to expect simply because I didn t read the synopsis I know, I know Crazy, huh But it s the truth I saw the title on NetGalley and, since bad habits are hard to break, automatically hit the request button Although I d never read anything by Aprilynne Pike before, I did know that she is the author of the pretty popular Wings series I ve heard many peop [...]

  10. Decent hostess, Saber says with a deep, low laugh What you re essentially doing is tricking these women these people into a serious addiction I don t think the word decent has any place in this conversation The guilt washes over me again as I hand one of those to Lord Aaron s love, but I remind myself that perhaps with a bit of loosening up, Sir Spencer would be willing todally with Aaron a bit DNF 52%The main character in this novel is so despicable that I cannot stand to read another page of [...]

  11. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 10 23 On the face of it, the premise behind this book resembles something which might have resulted from an ill considered bet, quite possibly after a wild night of tequila shots Duuuuuude, what if you made Breaking Bad take place during the French late Baroque period Except everything s, like, totally in the future You could have Marie Antoinette peddling pep pills out of her panniers Bet you couldn t write a story about that Just watch me sa [...]

  12. 5 Words Grandeur, betrayal, friendship, drugs, escape.Starting this, I was thrown a little by the writing style, it s not what I m used to, and it did mean that it did take a little while to get settled into the story.I didn t like the main character I just couldn t like Danica after all that she did, after every foolish decision She does some pretty despicable things.That said, the ending thoroughly surprised me and I do want to read on.This is one of those books you read because you re looking [...]

  13. Picture it my darlings The palace of Versailles, gold trimmed everything, corsets and coattails, jewels upon diamonds, frivolous spending, a cutthroat society and cakes that would make THE Marie Antoinette weep with longing Sigh cinched waists, social climbing and overly priced deaths What could we ask for Now if that doesn t make you twiddle your fingers with delight, then maybe this will This little gem is set in modern times, but the inhabitants of the palace of Versailles keep tradition The [...]

  14. In a futuristic version of Versailles in which people have modern technology and comforts they still live as if it s the eighteenth century as far as dress and society is concerned Seventeen year old Danica stumbles upon the young King in a rather compromising position that ends in the death of a servant girl Using the situation Danica s mother bribes the King to marry her daughter to further their family without consideration for Danica Danica now has six months until her eighteenth birthday to [...]

  15. Some knights appear on white steeds mine rides bejeweled heels with satin laces I tried to get my hands on this thing of beauty many times in the last months and finally, few weeks ago, Netgalley granted my wish I must say that the only thing I knew about Glitter a part from the fact that it s got a stunning cover was that it somehow dealt with drugs I always try not to spoil too much of the plot before diving into a book So, now that I finally read it, what is Glitter truly about Well, the syno [...]

  16. This review was done by KissinBlueKarenI really enjoyed this book, but I didn t know what to expect based on the cover The Baroque society is really fascinating, so I can see the allure of living like that.In this modern day world, high society live like it s the eighteenth century The current King s great grandfather arranged the purchase of the palace of Versailles and surrounding area from France, and turn it into a historical site Residents and employees of the company take to the old ways w [...]

  17. Disclaimer I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Rating 3.5 starsBefore I get started, there is a trigger warning for this book Be warned that there is physical and sexual abuse within its pages.Glitter is told from the perspective of Danica or Dani for short yay , 17 year old soon to be Queen of Sonoman Versailles Except she really doesn t want to be After Dani witnesses the King committing a seriou [...]

  18. Browsing Netgalley and the cover drew me in, but then I read the description From 1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike comes a truly original new novel Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near future world where the residents of Versailles live like it s the eighteenth century and an almost queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life So, yeah That got my attention, lol Hopefully I get approved

  19. A for a truly unique premise Danica is just your typical teenage girl growing up in THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES In the future Living in what now is Sonoma Versailles, a hybrid company living history museum, Danica finds herself torn from typical court life when she and her mother witness King Justin murder a girl Her mother ever the opportunist blackmails the King into making Danica his new queen Refusing to become the King s next plaything, or worse murder victim Danica begins selling the newest d [...]

  20. Glitter had me totally hooked pardon the pun right from the start I had just planned to take a look inside of this book, and I couldn t stop reading As usual, I didn t read the book description, so I was just overwhelmed in a positive sense with the turn of events.I loved the world building It s fresh, new fun to read The mix of dystopia and historical fiction offers an interesting twist.The characters have depth and diversity, and, although I didn t always or hardly ever agreed with her decisio [...]

  21. At first glance, Glitter looks like a book about a girl who s got it good Danica Grayson was born into a society that pretends they re in 18th century England She lives in a palace and is engaged to the king From the start, Danica is trying to run away from her arranged marriage I rolled my eyes and thought, oh my god, this is just like every other book whose heroine whines about marrying a perfect guy Who cares Pages after I made this presumption, Glitter reminded me that just because a book se [...]

  22. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review Actual rating 4.5 glittering starsGlitter has one of the most unique story lines that I have read all year The story is completely engrossing and from the first page of the prologue I was hooked.Glitter follows a not so average teenager named Danica living in the not so distant future where the Palace of Versailles has become its own country, and those who reside within its walls live as th [...]

  23. That s seriously where it ends I loved the description on Glitter and as soon as I jumped into the story I was interested to see where Pike was going to go with it There are definitely a lot of questionable characters in this book as a matter of fact, I m not sure I liked any of them Pike creates this world that revolves around 18th century France but with all the modern pieces we have in our world today Danica is in a situation where she can t win no matter what and in the end, she finds out ju [...]

  24. I enjoyed glitter it was a great change of pace for a historical spin on a modern world I suggest you take a spin in this world.

  25. I liked that France and Breaking Bad are two of my favorite things, and it was interesting to see how Aprilynne Pike wove together the old and the new to create a unique setting and an entertaining story Danica, much like Walter White, is an anti hero I didn t always agree with the choices she made, but I could certainly understand her reasons for making them Like Walter, she too finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place with devastating consequences clutches heart Every time a charact [...]

  26. OFFICIAL BLURB Aprilynne Pike s gift is that each book she writes is utterly inventive GLITTER is no exception As always her characters are interesting, vivid, and dynamic and they play out their nail biting scenes against a richly imagined, lush backdrop Her books are skillfully woven and a royal delight

  27. Dark, fascinating and twisted Combines a fast plot with a pseudo pre Revolutionary France and Breaking Bad, some of my favorite things all woven together I haven t read anything quite like it before

  28. Loved it It s really unique and very entertaining I loved the setting and the twists and turns I can t wait for the next book.
