Happy Friday Bookworms,
I am sorry this week has been so weird, if you follow me on twitter you would have seen my writing update there. I was very behind on Camp Nanowrimo. I am still a little bit behind today, but I am getting there. Yesterday I also put out a video on my Youtube channel talking a bit about my experience meeting Michael Scott. It was so cool, and in that video you can see I am still sort of overwhelmed with my life. Click here to see that video. Now lets talk about some books!
Alex and Eliza: A Love Story
1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
In the pages of Alex and Eliza, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.
As you can tell this is about Alexander and Eliza but unlike Hamilton the musical it is more about their love story and who wouldn't want to see a historic romance come to fruition, one that was real. This month I don't have to many books that I am super excited about. Check in next month, I will have a bizillion.
