Note: I received an ARC copy of the book. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have purchased my own copy of the book because it’s absolutely worth buying. The Plum Deluxe tea link in this post is an affiliate post, but I only recommend them because they are my favorite tea company!

I’m something of a sucker for fairy tales with an interesting twist, and since Anne Wheeler is one of my favorite authors, I couldn’t pass up Treason’s Crown! As a novella, it’s the perfect length for reading in an evening.

The main character, Riette, piqued my interest from the start. Treason’s Crown isn’t your typical Cinderella story, and while the ending isn’t exactly a sad ending, neither is it the usual happily ever after. It’s complicated, but in a good way!

The worldbuilding in Treason’s Crown was intriguing, and I truly hope there will be more books in the series because I want to know more about the setting, and of course, the characters! The book wrapped things up well enough that I’m satisfied with the ending, but there’s still plenty of room for continuing the story. (And I really do hope this is not the end!) The book is clean, so I have no hesitation handing it to my teen daughter to read. It released a week ago, so you can go grab your ebook copy right now and start reading this evening.

If you’re looking for a great tea paring, might I suggest the Plum Deluxe Gratitude Blend that’s featured in my teacup? It’s a strawberry Earl Grey blend, that’s not overpowering on the strawberry. Neither is the berry “artificial” tasting as other strawberry Earl Grey blends I’ve tried in the past.

So, what books have you read and what tea blends have you tried lately that were really good? Let me know in the comments, or on social media!
