Don't get me wrong the blurb of this sounds good, but I'd be 100% lying if I said I didn't add this to my TBR because of the cover.

EDIT:

I have read this multiple times now and it gets more gorgeous each time. How is that possible? Each time I read it, I find new moments and lines to love. Honestly, it's a gorgeous story about what it means to be human, the brilliance and pain of it, with magic and music and heart, so much heart, and how destinies do not define you, you define your destiny. I JUST REALLY LOVE IT, OKAY? I can't wait to have my physical copy when it comes out next year.

I was lucky enough to read an early draft of this and I have to say it's one of the most magical things I've ever read. The prose is lyrical and mesmerizing. The characters rendered with heart and a strange, vulnerable honesty that makes it really easy to relate to and understand them on an all too human level. AND THE STAR COURT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND INTERESTING AND MUSICAL. I love love love it. I can't wait for everyone to get to experience this brilliant, thrumming, song of a book. You're all in for such a treat.

You had me at Star and Hindu Mythology!

Give me some shiny things and a downpour of mythology, and I’m here for it- all the time, every time. A girl likes what she likes. 🤷🏼♀

Not gonna lie- this has competition w/ Bone Crier's Moon, and both of them sound absolutely incredible. Charlie Bowater is- hands down- my favorite book cover artist of all time. JUST LOOK AT THIS!

Yet another book that I have to wait over a month for. Ugh.

But seriously, this sounds amazing. AND THE COVER I AM DROOLING OVER MY GOSH
