Review: The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

The Glittering Court follows Elizabeth Witmore, am Osfridian countess who poses as her lady’s maid to escape an arranged marriage. Assuming her new identity as Adelaide Bailey, she runs away to the new world, Adoria, a world that represents freedom and adventure to her, and her ticket to Adoria is in joining the Glittering Court. The Glittering Court is a business designed to take poor working girls from Osfrid and train them up into a “new nobility” to marry richly in the Adorian colonies, which are overpopulated with men. Adelaide joins this crew hoping to blend in, not realizing that pretending a lack of noble knowledge is much harder than she thinks.

The Adventures of Harry the Lizard

One morning as the bookstore opened bright,

A young bookseller noticed something weird:

A movement in the corner of her sight - 

A small, thin creature suddenly appeared!

It was a lizard, running quick away,

For her approach had given him a fright.

She named him Harry and she let him stay;

It suited him and seemed entirely right.
