Books On Our Radar: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd
Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd is definitely on our radar! I am sure you have seen those amazing enamel pins! Pretty excited for the Parisian setting and of course all the magic! I really love the concept of the Beasties and the Haute and this underground magical society all taking place in Paris! Seems like there is a blurry line between the good and the bad, and we all love that trope. There is also a preorder incentive, so be sure to preorder before the October 2nd release, if this book sounds as good to you as it does to me, and be sure to add it to your fall TBR!
Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime.
Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose the only lives they’ve ever known…but if they succeed, they could be more powerful than anyone ever bargained for.
From New York Times bestselling author Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies is an epic and glittering YA fantasy. Prepare to be spellbound by the world of Grim Lovelies, where secrets have been long buried, friends can become enemies, and everything—especially humanity—comes at a price.
