    Shatter by Aprilynne Pike is the second book in the young adult fantasy Glitter series. The series is set in a futuristic version of Versailles in which people have modern technology and comforts yet they still live as if it?s the eighteenth century as far as dress and society is con...

    As trashy as the first book in this series was, I loved it - and I DESPERATELY want the next one. What can I say, I'm a sucker for Marie Antoinette and spoiled heroines who learn to become jaded souls. >:D ...

    Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by the publisher, Random House Children?s, via NetGalley for an honest review. Opinion: OoOoOo can you guys hear that? It sounds almost like?like?ravenous courtiers inebriated on Glitter rouge and lipstick. Or maybe it?s the whimsi...

    After the ending of Glitter, I was quite eager to see what the sequel had in store. My main interest is that I wanted to see if Danica would redeem herself. I liked her and just like with the first book, she was easy to hate. Some of her decisions were questionable, even if her int...

    I honestly don't have words for this book but in the best way! I was so excited but nervous going into this book because I loved and adored Glitter so much! However, I couldn't wait to dive right into this one and I wasn't disappointed. If anything, it was even better than Glitter at s...

    ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review*** I always love when the name of the book is as good as the book and the cover, and I just loved this cover and love it even more since I completed the book. Shatter is the second book in the Glitter series by Aprilynne Pike, and Sha...

    So?I kind of hated Saber this time. I loved book one, but it?s been a while since I read it. I was kind of afraid that I?d forgotten everything. Nope, I was able to get right back into this one. I will say, however, that you MUST read book 1 in order to understand this one...

    Rating: 3.75/5 Review to come! ...

    What?!? It's only a duology, I need more! This was much better than the first one. I feel like the author improved a lot with the sequel and I felt more invested in the story. Even though I am very happy with how it ended, I think there could be 1-2 more books, and once I finished, I r...

    Having enjoyed the originality of Glitter, this book's predecessor and glorying in the almost-unredeemable evilness of some of the characters, I was anxious to see if Danica Grayson could redeem herself and somehow get out of the king's clutches. Honestly, in many ways she proved to be...

    Sequel to Glitter and I am assuming the conclusion of the story - though one can never say for sure. I enjoyed seeing Danica embrace her power as queen and she was more likable as she was honest with her friends about glitter, though at that point they were already addicts. Lots more ...

    This book was harder to get into than the first. I often have difficulty with political intrigue storylines and although this book looked at everything through the characters, it was still very slow in spots. I enjoyed it but not nearly as much as book one. ...

    Rating: 3.75/5 ...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Shatter by Aprilynne Pike is the sequel to the amazing Glitter that rocked my world earlier this year. I am a huge fan of the author and I really en...

    I received a digital ARC of this book from Edelweiss. I definitely enjoyed this better than I thought I would. The first book I gave 3 stars, maybe 3.5. I loved the idea, it was original and really fun, but there was just something lacking to me in the characters. This one had me h...

    Shatter is book two in the Glitter series by Aprilynne Pike and I think I liked this one better than the first book. I was successfully pulled back into this world of deception, blackmail, and intrigue and I found myself unable to stop reading. If you recall from book one, Danica wa...

    So...despite my issues with the Glitter, I still decided to read this. Why? The answer is pretty simple (and it's not that I'm a glutton for punishment). I had to finish the story. Yes, I am cursing myself, but I had to know... Firstly (and thankfully), there is a lot less corse...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Random House Books for gifting me this ARC in exchange for an honest review. The cover though!! So beautiful! Shatter is book 2 in the Glitter series. As Danica?s plan to escape the Palace of Versailles slips through her fingers she finds h...

    Though there were some plot points that gave me hope for a deeper message, this book was fairly shallow. A couple characters became more fleshed out (Lady Mei, Sir/Duke Spencer) but the main ones were still confined to their one-dimensional roles, especially Danica's adversaries and Da...

    Before I start my attempt at a review, I need to mention two things. The first - I received this ARC through Netgalley and am providing my honest review. The second - when I signed up to receive this book through Netgalley, I hadn?t realized this was a sequel. In fact, I didn?t...

    I loved it. Unlike the first one, which had a few drawbacks (I did a review of it, if you're curious), this one was a great read from start to finish. I made sure to reread Glitter before starting this one, just to make a smooth transition from one book to the next. The political intri...

    The Sequel to Glitter. I give it a solid 4 stars. I will say, you do not have to read the first book to read this one, but YOU SHOULD! Miss Pike does a great job of throwing surprises, sass, sexy and real emotions at you, one right after the other... Danica, the former tech stu...

    What?!? It's only a duology, I need more! This was much better than the first one. I feel like the author improved a lot with the sequel and I felt more invested in the story. Even though I am very happy with how it ended, I think there could be 1-2 more books, and once I finished, I r...

    Shatter by Aprilynne Pike is the second book in the young adult fantasy Glitter series. The series is set in a futuristic version of Versailles in which people have modern technology and comforts yet they still live as if it?s the eighteenth century as far as dress and society is con...

    As trashy as the first book in this series was, I loved it - and I DESPERATELY want the next one. What can I say, I'm a sucker for Marie Antoinette and spoiled heroines who learn to become jaded souls. >:D ...

    Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by the publisher, Random House Children?s, via NetGalley for an honest review. Opinion: OoOoOo can you guys hear that? It sounds almost like?like?ravenous courtiers inebriated on Glitter rouge and lipstick. Or maybe it?s the whimsi...

    After the ending of Glitter, I was quite eager to see what the sequel had in store. My main interest is that I wanted to see if Danica would redeem herself. I liked her and just like with the first book, she was easy to hate. Some of her decisions were questionable, even if her int...

    I honestly don't have words for this book but in the best way! I was so excited but nervous going into this book because I loved and adored Glitter so much! However, I couldn't wait to dive right into this one and I wasn't disappointed. If anything, it was even better than Glitter at s...

    ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review*** I always love when the name of the book is as good as the book and the cover, and I just loved this cover and love it even more since I completed the book. Shatter is the second book in the Glitter series by Aprilynne Pike, and Sha...

    So?I kind of hated Saber this time. I loved book one, but it?s been a while since I read it. I was kind of afraid that I?d forgotten everything. Nope, I was able to get right back into this one. I will say, however, that you MUST read book 1 in order to understand this one...

    3.5 Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I was SO excited for this book after receiving Glitter as an ARC through NetGalley last year. I fell in love with the characters and the intrigue. I adore books about France, Versailles, and Marie-Antoinette, so it was ...

    Rating: 3.75/5 Review to come! ...

    What?!? It's only a duology, I need more! This was much better than the first one. I feel like the author improved a lot with the sequel and I felt more invested in the story. Even though I am very happy with how it ended, I think there could be 1-2 more books, and once I finished, I r...

    This book was incredibly disappointing after how much I enjoyed the last one. First, the economics sucked. Please watch this video and substitute the word Elysium with Versailles and realize the big evil plan was dumb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Andr... Second, the villain...

    Having enjoyed the originality of Glitter, this book's predecessor and glorying in the almost-unredeemable evilness of some of the characters, I was anxious to see if Danica Grayson could redeem herself and somehow get out of the king's clutches. Honestly, in many ways she proved to be...

    Sequel to Glitter and I am assuming the conclusion of the story - though one can never say for sure. I enjoyed seeing Danica embrace her power as queen and she was more likable as she was honest with her friends about glitter, though at that point they were already addicts. Lots more ...

    This book was harder to get into than the first. I often have difficulty with political intrigue storylines and although this book looked at everything through the characters, it was still very slow in spots. I enjoyed it but not nearly as much as book one. ...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Shatter by Aprilynne Pike is the sequel to the amazing Glitter that rocked my world earlier this year. I am a huge fan of the author and I really en...

    I received a digital ARC of this book from Edelweiss. I definitely enjoyed this better than I thought I would. The first book I gave 3 stars, maybe 3.5. I loved the idea, it was original and really fun, but there was just something lacking to me in the characters. This one had me h...

    I loved it. Unlike the first one, which had a few drawbacks (I did a review of it, if you're curious), this one was a great read from start to finish. I made sure to reread Glitter before starting this one, just to make a smooth transition from one book to the next. The political intri...

    Having enjoyed the originality of Glitter, this book's predecessor and glorying in the almost-unredeemable evilness of some of the characters, I was anxious to see if Danica Grayson could redeem herself and somehow get out of the king's clutches. Honestly, in many ways she proved to be...

    Sequel to Glitter and I am assuming the conclusion of the story - though one can never say for sure. I enjoyed seeing Danica embrace her power as queen and she was more likable as she was honest with her friends about glitter, though at that point they were already addicts. Lots more ...

    This book was harder to get into than the first. I often have difficulty with political intrigue storylines and although this book looked at everything through the characters, it was still very slow in spots. I enjoyed it but not nearly as much as book one. ...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Shatter by Aprilynne Pike is the sequel to the amazing Glitter that rocked my world earlier this year. I am a huge fan of the author and I really en...

    After the ending of Glitter, I was quite eager to see what the sequel had in store. My main interest is that I wanted to see if Danica would redeem herself. I liked her and just like with the first book, she was easy to hate. Some of her decisions were questionable, even if her int...

    I honestly don't have words for this book but in the best way! I was so excited but nervous going into this book because I loved and adored Glitter so much! However, I couldn't wait to dive right into this one and I wasn't disappointed. If anything, it was even better than Glitter at s...

    So?I kind of hated Saber this time. I loved book one, but it?s been a while since I read it. I was kind of afraid that I?d forgotten everything. Nope, I was able to get right back into this one. I will say, however, that you MUST read book 1 in order to understand this one...

    I received a digital ARC of this book from Edelweiss. I definitely enjoyed this better than I thought I would. The first book I gave 3 stars, maybe 3.5. I loved the idea, it was original and really fun, but there was just something lacking to me in the characters. This one had me h...

    So...despite my issues with the Glitter, I still decided to read this. Why? The answer is pretty simple (and it's not that I'm a glutton for punishment). I had to finish the story. Yes, I am cursing myself, but I had to know... Firstly (and thankfully), there is a lot less corse...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Random House Books for gifting me this ARC in exchange for an honest review. The cover though!! So beautiful! Shatter is book 2 in the Glitter series. As Danica?s plan to escape the Palace of Versailles slips through her fingers she finds h...

    Though there were some plot points that gave me hope for a deeper message, this book was fairly shallow. A couple characters became more fleshed out (Lady Mei, Sir/Duke Spencer) but the main ones were still confined to their one-dimensional roles, especially Danica's adversaries and Da...

    Before I start my attempt at a review, I need to mention two things. The first - I received this ARC through Netgalley and am providing my honest review. The second - when I signed up to receive this book through Netgalley, I hadn?t realized this was a sequel. In fact, I didn?t...

    I loved it. Unlike the first one, which had a few drawbacks (I did a review of it, if you're curious), this one was a great read from start to finish. I made sure to reread Glitter before starting this one, just to make a smooth transition from one book to the next. The political intri...

    The Sequel to Glitter. I give it a solid 4 stars. I will say, you do not have to read the first book to read this one, but YOU SHOULD! Miss Pike does a great job of throwing surprises, sass, sexy and real emotions at you, one right after the other... Danica, the former tech stu...

    I loved the first book and was really excited to dive back into the palace of Versailles! In this book we start out following Danica after her wedding to the king of Sonoman-Versailles and we see a more devious and mischievous side of Danica that is a contract from Danica?s character...
