TBR Thursday (8)

TBR Thursday is a meme hosted by Drea. (Inspired by Waiting on Wednesday/Breaking the Spine.)

TBR Thursday highlights all those books that are already out (whether you own them or not) that you’re dying to read, but haven’t had the chance to yet. There can be some old books, some new books, and some that are in between, but they have to be books that you want/hope to read and review!

Here’s my TBR Thursday this week

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Release Date: Dec. 2003

It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma’s reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she’s been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?
