Blogmas Day 20: Everless by Sara Holland // Review


Title: Everless by Sara Holland

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 4th January 2018

Synopsis: In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything – even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry. Jules and her father are behind on their rent and low on hours. To stop him from draining himself to clear their debts, Jules takes a job at Everless, the grand estate of the cruel Gerling family.

There, Jules encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, who is soon to be married. But the web of secrets at Everless stretches beyond her desire, and the truths Jules must uncover will change her life for ever … and possibly the future of time itself.divider-2461548_1280Review:

Hi everyone!

Here we are on Day 11 of Blogmas! I’m having so much fun with Blogmas, and today I have a very festive book tag (spoiler: one of many this blogmas!).

The 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag was created last year by Ashley @ Falling Down The Book Hole.

I’m going to go with one I read recently since there are SO many I love, but I’ll have to go with Hate List by Jennifer Brown – it is so amazing and a truly wonderfully written book.
