Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancĂ©, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.
When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancĂ©, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?
Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself. {Goodreads}
Gahhh! I am in love with the Renaissance age. Serious;y. Anyone who truly knows me can tell you. It is my obsession...and I would totally love to get more into it but for right now I just know of its elegence. So naturally if I love the Renaissance for its style and elegence...this cover speaks to me right? Right. The mask, font, smoke, catchy line "Beauty can be deadly". this cover has me drooling. And to be honest...I never read the synopsis till now. I knew (based off the cover..its kind of a given) it was set in the Renaissance age, and everyone was loving it but that's it. Now, I know I need this book.

The Ruins of Lace
Author: Iris Anthony
Release Date: October 2, 2012
by, Sourcebooks Landmark
Lace is a thing like hope. It is beauty; it is grace. It was never meant to destroy so many lives .
The mad passion for forbidden lace has infiltrated France, pulling soldier and courtier alike into its web. For those who want the best, Flemish lace is the only choice, an exquisite perfection of thread and air. For those who want something they don’t have, Flemish lace can buy almost anything––or anyone.
For Lisette, lace begins her downfall, and the only way to atone for her sins is to outwit the noble who now demands the impossible. To fail means certain destruction. But for Katharina, lace is her salvation. It is who she is; it is what she does. If she cannot make this stunning tempest of threads, a dreaded fate awaits.
The most lucrative contraband in Europe, with its intricate patterns and ephemeral hope, threatens to cost them everything. Lace may be the deliverance for which they all pray...or it may bring the ruin and imprisonment they all fear. {Goodreads}
This one is more simple but I find I really like it. The lady and her dress, the broken mirror, the lace withering on the side....its elegant. This is an adult book and I have yet to read any adult books yet but I think I may just start with this one. It is interesting and again, the France setting with the touch of the Renaissance background feel. I really like history and historical fiction is like a breath of fresh air at times. I don't like to read it all the time but when I do its refreshing! 

The Lost Prince
Author: Julie Kagawa
Release Date: October 23, 2012
by, HarlequinTeen
Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.
That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.
Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.
This novel is one of Julie’s books that will have you demanding for the second one as soon as you finish your read. {Goodreads}
First of Julies books that has you demanding the 2nd as soon as you finish the 1st? Uhmmm aren't all of them like that?? Ya, that's what I though! Anyways!!! AHHHHHH!!!! This is like one of my most anticipated books of the year guys!! Look. at. that. cover! O.o Ya, I fainted too. Ethan isn't too little now is he? I kinda have to admit...I think its weird thinking baby Ethan is hot...ya he grew up but...I always knew him as baby Ethan ya know? Well, I guess with Julie writing it...I may just change my mind who knows! DUDES!! I am SO freaking excited!! I can't wait to see what goes down and who goes down in this book, the new characters, old character ALL! Cover talk: woah!!! The Iron Fey covers never seize to amaze me! They are all so beautiful and damn...he is one fine specimen...just sayin! 
But can't buy it! Remember!? You aren't allowed. Now what kind of Julie fan would I be first of all to not want this book? And what Iron Fey fan would I be if I didn't beg and plead and break my rule just to get this book? Ya, I wouldn't be a fanatic would I? No. That is why they say there is an exception to every rule and friends...this is my exception. One book! One book is all I'm allowed to have and I choose you! ;) (put a winky face in the comments if you know where that is from). (Well, two...the Iron Legends and this one..ya both by Julie and both part of the Iron Fey.)

SO! What did you think!? Tell me your favorite below!
Hope you have an amazing rest of your October!
