Can't Wait Wednesday #25 - Shatter (Glitter Duology #2) by Aprilynne Pike

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about 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.  Another sequel this week, this time to a book that I really enjoyed last year, Glitter by Aprilynne Pike.  I think I saw the e-galley pop up on Edelweiss last week, and so I'm very excited to read this sequel, or I guess I should say final book in the duology.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:



Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it's the 1700s--this sequel to Glitter by #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike will leave readers shocked!

Danica planned to use beauty, blackmail, and a glittering drug to control her own fate. Her escape from the twisted world of the Palace of Versailles was perfectly orchestrated and paid for. Or so she thought. 

Betrayed by the man who had promised her freedom, Dani is now married to the murderous King. It's a terrifying position to be in...and yet it's oddly intoxicating. Power may be an even stronger drug than Glitter--a drug Dani can't resist, in the form of secrets, manipulation, and sabotage.

In her new position at the head of the court, Dani must ask herself who she really is. Can she use her newfound power to secure her real love, Saber's freedom and a chance at a life together outside the palace? Or is being Queen too addictive to give up?


Have you started this series yet?  Have you read any other books by this author?  What book or books are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  13. I remember looking at Glitter back when it released, but I never did pick it up. Perhaps at some point I will - and with its sequel releasing, it might be the perfect time to *finally* pick this one up! :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland - and happy reading. :)

    1. Since there are only going to be two, it might be smart to wait till both are out. Thanks for returning the visit!
