    1. So, I heard high praise for this YA, and it does sound really interesting. I mean, not the typical YA fantasy powers? Historical Paris with known historical figures? Games in the Palace of Versailles? Balloon flights? Also I'm not gonna lie and say that the protagonist having essentially the same name as me doesn't affect me lolBut seriously 2019? Com'on


    2. This sounds like my cup of tea ;) When a scheming courtier blackmails her and Lazare’s affections shift, Camille loses control of her secrets.Me right away, knowing next to nothing about Lazare:
