TBR Planning: August

Friday, August 1, 2014
August is my second favorite month. This time in a year, I will be in hardcore wedding mode. I probably will avoid all my responsibilities with reading. Not that I've ever done that in the past or anything. I've been doing pretty good sticking to a reading plan/guide and here are a couple in the wings going forward in the 8th month of the year!

American artist Joseph Hannigan and his alluring sister, Sophie, have arrived in enchanting nineteenth-century Venice with a single-minded goal. The twins, who have fled scandal in New York, are determined to break into Venice’s expatriate set and find a wealthy patron to support Joseph’s work.

But the enigmatic Hannigans are not the only ones with a secret agenda. Joseph’s talent soon attracts the attention of the magnificent OdilĂ© Leon, a celebrated courtesan and muse who has inspired many artists to greatness. But her inspiration comes with a devastatingly steep price.

As Joseph falls under the courtesan’s spell, Sophie joins forces with Nicholas Dane, the one man who knows OdilĂ©’s dark secret, and her sworn enemy. When the seductive muse offers Joseph the path to eternal fame, the twins must decide who to believe—and just how much they are willing to sacrifice for fame.

Inamorata by Megan Chance
A blog tour novel about Italy and art and siblings and love. It's going to be a convoluted tale and it sounds like the best kind of historical fiction.

Frostborn by Lou Anders
A BEA book that I've been eyeing for months. It's due to be published and it's a MG fantasy with dragons and kick ass girl characters. I'm almost sold by just that alone!

Dark Aemilia by Sally O'Reilly
Shakespeare's famous dark muse gets a name and a history in this historical fiction read. I haven't seen many authors tackle this idea so it gets points for trying at least. I hope the execution is worthy of the premise.
