Tour Announcement: Rivals of Versailles by Sally Christie + Giveaway

And so, after so long, I'm back! 

I've been [REALLY] busy with school, so I unfortunately been radio silent for the last... two or three... months? I have no clue how long I've actually been genuinely active (everything's been queued), but with the semester and my personal motivation for school dwindling down, I'm slowly easing my way back into blogging.

And as my first major blog post back, I'm proud to announce that I'm taking part of the Rivals of Versailles blog tour.

The novel is written by Sally Christie, and takes place in 18th century France. Here's the synopsis if you're curious:

The year is 1745 and King Louis XV’s bed is once again empty. Enter Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, a beautiful girl from the middle classes. As a child, a fortune teller had told young Jeanne’s destiny: she would become the lover of a king and the most powerful woman in the land. Eventually connections, luck, and a little scheming pave her way to Versailles and into the King’s arms. Around them, war rages, discontent grows, and France inches ever closer to the Revolution.

Told in Christie's celebrated witty and modern style, The Rivals of Versailles will delight and entrance fans as it brings to life the court of Louis XV in all its pride, pestilence, and glory.

The novel releases on April 5th, and I'll be hosting on the 7th. I'll be posting my review AND giving away a finished copy of the novel as well.

Below is the tour announcement if you want more information!
