Happy Thursday! You know what that means… time for a new TBR Thursday!
My feature was influenced by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives and her On My Shelf posts. I love love love the idea of spotlighting a title from my shelf (or, you know, my eReader) and seeing what you think about it. Sometimes it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time and older titles have a way of just fading from the radar. I love this way of featuring an older title and, of course, getting a chance to talk about it with other bloggers and readers. And I want to force myself to do it regularly, hence the TBR Thursday title.
If you’d like to join in on the fun, I’ve created a banner you can use – or you can always make your own! (Right click and save as to grab the image for yourself.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!
I’ve been a little lazy lately when it comes to my TBR Thursday posts and I apologize for that. Anyhow, I decided to use a few of my TBR Thursday feature posts to highlight books that are STILL sitting on my shelves on NetGalley, despite the publication date having already passed. (I’m ashamed.)
Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos. But when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.
Beautiful, manipulative, and deadly, his new master, Prince Laurent, epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.
For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else…
Slightly unpopular opinion time… I tried to get into this book a couple years ago when I got the ARC. It just wasn’t working for me. I reshelved it and moved on. Maybe it was my mood? I don’t know. What I do know is that pretty much everyone *I KNOW* who has read it loves it. Should I give it another go?
Have you read The Captive Prince?
Should I give it a shot?
Or should I just admit I’m never going to read it and send that feedback?
