Well hello there! It's Monday again at Sparkles and Lightning, which means I get to do one of my favorite posts of the entire week. Magic Mondays is a fun feature I have here that involves covers, excerpts, and giveaways! A win any angle you look at it.

It's a book I myself haven't read yet this time. I want to, but there are so many books and so little time. Well, at least I can pass some joy on!

The Friday Society

Cora knew the danger. She also knew that she'd probably never find someone willing to marry such a creature. She was too good now for the boys she'd grown up with in the street, and yet would never be good enough for any of his lordship's peers.

Well, I really like the sound of that. Just saying. That's practically setting up a fabulous and daring romance. So yeah, I'm excited.

You guys know the drill. Read my Giveaways page thoroughly, and then you can enter and have fun and we'll both be happy. Right? Right. Yay!

Here's this week's .

And then here's the entry form!

Good luck, darlings! I seriously wish that all of you could win. That would be the most ideal thing ever. But, well, there is always a next time no matter what!



  1. Oooooo it sounds really good! and different! Plus the girls on the cover look bad*ss which is always good :P Thanks for the giveaway!!

  2. This sounds very interesting! Love strong female characters and also like the cover!

  3. I've had my eye on this book for ages, I can't wait to read it! I actually haven't read any steam punk yet (shocking, I know), so I'd love to start with this one. Thanks for a chance to win! :-)

  4. Ooooh, it sounds great! Love the cover as well. I checked it out on goodreads and I like the ratings. Thanks for the giveaway

  5. I loved this excerpt!! It makes me want to read it even more, if that's even possible. Thanks so much for the giveaway!!

  6. This book is at the top of my wishlist! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. Fingers crossed so tight my knuckles hurt haha <3

  7. Wow, that excerpt. Very vague, but definitely makes me want to read more!
