    *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 skillfull...

    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 e...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest That cliffhanger ending - ugh. I see now that it's a duology. It's been a while since I visited this book's Goodreads page clearly, because I was NOT expecting GLITER to end like that. /cliffhangery rage To b...

    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 Dani...

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/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 Bre...

    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! ...

    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...

    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 w...

    I was sold at the tagline of "Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette", but then I saw the cover and was even more 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 s...

    ?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...

    This review was done by KissinBlueKaren I 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 eightee...

    all i could think while reading this was ?go insane, go insane, throw some glitter, make it rain.? lol. besides the random kesha song reference, this was actually better than i thought it would be. i was well prepared to dislike this based on friends reviews, but i didnt! dont g...

    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 he...

    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 on...

    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...

    "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 t...

    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 ...

    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 dea...

    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. Everythin...

    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...
