Hey, everybody!  Sorry I have been a little MIA lately.  I know I don’t regularly post on here as it is other than book reviews (which I now have about 3 to catch up on?), but this past May was a little crazy with 2 shows opening at the beginning and end of it and then straight into BookCon.  Which is what I am going to talk about today!

1review d

dreadful tale

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding (The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding #1)by Alexandra Bracken

Publish Date: September 5, 2017 
Published by: Disney-Hyperion
Pages: 362
Genre: MG Fantasy
My Rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5 stars)

**I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.**

Synopsis:

“I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness.”

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type. 

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host. 

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?

We are halfway through August already, can you believe it?!!  I’m on vacation next week so I am currently counting down the days till then.  In the meantime, I wanted to share some books that I am most excited for which are coming out this September.  September through November tend to see a lot of new releases in anticipation of the holiday season, so of course, I have plenty on my list as well.

September 5th

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Reddingby Alexandra Bracken – I’m not going to lie, the name “Alexandra Bracken” is kind of a key factor in why I am eagerly anticipating this book, but also the demon-possession aspect sounds pretty darn cool too.   Continue reading “Anticipated Reads | September 2017”
