"Violet Grenade" by Victoria Scott

Violet Grenade
by Victoria Scott

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott is currently on tour with Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours. The tour stops here today for a guest post by the author and a giveaway. Please be sure to visit the other tour stops as well.

DOMINO: A girl with blue hair and a demon in her mind.
CAIN: A stone giant on the brink of exploding.
MADAM KARINA: A woman who demands obedience.
WILSON: The one who will destroy them all.
When Madam Karina discovers Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position inside her home for entertainers in secluded West Texas. Left with few alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the madam’s approval. But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the person living inside Domino’s mind. Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson.

Author Victoria Scott reads Chapter 1 of Violet Grenade.

Five Books I Still Need to Read
Recently I did a post about five books I’m looking forward to in 2017. After I finished writing it, I realized that there are still quite a few books on my TBR that I’ve heard amazing things about that I have yet to read. Here are five of them!
1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I have been hearing nothing but good things about this book (and the sequel!) since before it released. And it looks so cool and unique!

2. All the Rage by Courtney Summers
Fun fact - This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers is one of my favorite books. So you’d think I’d already have worked my way through everything by her, right? Except I haven’t. Not even close. I need to. And I should start with this one in particular, based on all the praise I’ve seen for it. I have no doubt it’s amazing.

3. And I Darken by Kiersten White
I LOVE Paranormalcy and so many of her other books. So I really, really need to pick up Kiersten’s most recent series. It sounds incredibly awesome!

4. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know. How have I not read the sequel when the third just released? I have no excuse. None.

5. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
My assistant is a huge fan of this series and has been telling me to read it for a while. And I know it’s being made into a TV show, which is super cool. So how have I still not read The Darkest Minds? I honestly don’t know!

Those are some books I’ve heard marvelous things about that I somehow still need to read. Which of these do you think I should read first?
