Prior to blogging, I would read multiple books at a time. To be honest, there are occasional moments when I still do this, but I’ve found it’s easily for me when it comes to writing reviews if I’m only focused on one book’s plot/characters at a time.
The book I’m reading this week is one that I’ve been dying to get my hands on: The Last Romanov!!
Taking readers deep into tarnished grandeur, The Last Romanov follows Darya, a wise old beauty whose time spent with the Imperial family has haunted her entire life. When the murderous events unfold, Darya is plagued by the prophecy made by the Empress’s advisor, Rasputin. She must find the missing Tsarevich Alexis Romanov and restore the monarchy or risk losing her own life.
I’m still pretty early on in it (~50 pages), but it’s incredible and I’m loving the characters (& YAY NICKY/ALIX!! ♥).
It’s a bit different than what I was expecting though! There seems to be some magical/mystical elements that originally surprised me, but I’m loving everything about this book.
