I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be-read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the ones, I want to buy to the ones sitting on my TBR at home.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.
With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.
I may have featured this book years ago (around when it first released) yet I never got around to reading it. It was never really one that was on my radar. But I recently stumbled on Rosamund Hodge's twitter profile (which is wonderfully Catholic) which has made me want to give Cruel Beauty a chance. Needless to say, but I see (yet another) visit to the library in the near future for me!!
Have you read Cruel Beauty? What did you think of it?
