Goodreads Monday – November 18, 2019

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! It’s that easy, and I like easy 🙂

Basically I pulled up my “Want to Read” list on Goodreads, sorted it by number, and asked Siri to pick a random number from the approx 800 on the list. She chose 219, and that gave us…

*To avoid any spoilers, the following description is from Ruined, book one of the series*

A revenge that will consume her. A love that will ruin her.

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.


So I read the first book in this series back in 2016, rated it 4 stars, bought the second book…and then never continued with it. I feel like this happens to me more often than not, and the sheer amount of unfinished series on my shelves is dwarfed by those in my kindle library, especially from the years when I read only eBooks and didn’t track anything.

Just reading the description for this makes me think it might be time to add this back into the TBR, obviously starting back with book one!
