Good Morning Book Babes!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Hump Day! I have my company Christmas party today, so that should be fun! #Qotd: if you could live in any time period, which one would you choose? I think I’d like to live in England in the 1800’s. Find me a nice handsome Duke Isn’t this book just stunning? I’m in love with the cover and so far it’s an INCREDIBLE read! Thank you so much @torteen for sending it my way! Make sure you add this one to your TBRs - the female MC is a total badass! Synopsis: Roma Victor. The Republic of Rome is on a relentless march to build an empire--an empire built on the backs of the conquered, brought back to Rome as slaves. Attia was once destined to rule as the queen and swordmaiden of Thrace, the greatest warrior kingdom the world had seen since Sparta. Now she is a slave, given to Xanthus, the Champion of Rome, as a sign of his master's favor. Enslaved as a child, Xanthus is the preeminent gladiator of his generation. Against all odds, Attia and Xanthus form a tentative bond. A bond that will spark a rebellion. A rebellion that threatens to bring the Roman Republic to its end--and gives rise to the legend of Spartacus #torteen #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #2018release #advancedreaderscopy #bookish #bookishmerch #littlecrowcandles #booknerdigan #booknerdigans #bookworm #booklover #booklove #gladiator

Blood and Sand by @icvwyk is an action-packed story about a badass warrior princess and a reluctant gladiator champion who both desire revenge for the destruction of their homelands at the hands of the Roman army. There's adventure, plenty of amazing fight scenes, romance, and humor (thanks to a band of irreverent gladiators), and I am DYING for book 2! .

Have you gotten your copy of Blood and Sand, by C. V. Wyk yet? It came out on Jan. 16 from @torteen ! It's so good! Synopsis from Goodreads with mini, spoiler free review to follow! Full review is up on my blog! Link in my linktree! (I got a copy from #netgalley in exchange for an honest review!) "Roma Victrix. The Republic of Rome is on a relentless march to create an empire―an empire built on the backs of the conquered, brought back to Rome as slaves. Attia was once destined to rule as the queen and swordmaiden of Thrace, the greatest warrior kingdom the world had seen since Sparta. Now she is a slave, given to Xanthus, the Champion of Rome, as a sign of his master’s favor. Enslaved as a child, Xanthus is the preeminent gladiator of his generation. Against all odds, Attia and Xanthus form a tentative bond. A bond that will spark a rebellion. A rebellion that threatens to bring the Roman Republic to its end―and gives rise to the legend of Spartacus..." · ❄️ 4 Stars! High intensity, fast paced action, and two butt kicking characters that can take a lickin' but keep on kickin'! I thought the plot was original and really interesting to read about! I've never read a retelling of Spartacus before but I loved it!! I thought the characters had depth and personality. If Attia is fire then Xanthus is ice. Perfect for each other and perfectly deadly. I thought their romance moved a little fast and it wasn't a very smooth transition. However, I highly recommend this book to everyone! I can't wait for Fire and Ash in 2019!! (Also, @icvwyk , that ending destroyed me and I'm still not over it.) 😭 #bloodandsand #cvwyk #torteen #2018newrelease #romantimes #bookish #bookreview #bookreviewer
