TBR Thursday: The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

Hello my beautiful Narnians! I stumbled across this book blog meme, started by Kimberly Faye Reads.

It’s all about spotlighting a title from your shelf or eReader and seeing what other readers think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It’s a way to dust off those older books that have been sitting on our TBR and decide if they’re worth reading or just need to be removed from the list!

I actually have two books coming up on my TBR that I haven’t really seen much of on Bookstagram and would love to know if you have read it. Keep reading below to check out my latest TBR and share your thoughts.

 


The Casquette Girls Series (2 Book Series) by Alys Arden

These book covers are gorgeous. The colors get me EVERYTIME! I recently received the ARC of The Romeo Catchers (now available to order/read) only to realize it is the second half of a duology. I ordered The Casquette Girls and these are next on my list of books to read. I’m intrigued by the plot. It’s got a souther gothic meets pandora’s box vibe and I am itching to dive in. Those eye catching covers are absolutely perfect for bookstagram as well.

 

Synopsis: 

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return. Adele wants nothing more than to resume her normal life, but with the silent city resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.

Strange events—even for New Orleans—lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years. The chaos she accidentally unleashes threatens not only her but also everyone she knows.

Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, Adele must untangle a web of magic that weaves the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has secrets and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless…you’re immortal.

  1. Sounds like an intriguing read. I love things that dance around mythology and and the cultural roots of a place so steeped in magic and lore.
