*curtsies* I know your general feelings on YA but I think you might enjoy Megan Whalen Turner's series of books (which her fans have named The Queen's Thief but that's an awful name really). She's a brilliant worldbuilder, (one of the best I've ever read) and her world has a very Ancient Greecian/Byzantine flavor. Plus, there is major snark. I can't really hazard a guess about your tastes - outside of upmarket fiction of course - but I think you would like these books.

*Curtsies* So, book recs really aren’t for me personally–I currently have 841 books on my TBR list already and if I took every suggestion people sent via Tumblr it would get really out of hand really fast. But I appreciate the rec! And I am sure some of my followers will definitely enjoy this.

One of the best things about Gen is that he always physically lowers himself from his Queens so that he isn’t subtly undermining their power.

Like with Eddis when he sits by her feet at the throne. (Like okay he technically should be lower than her because she outranks him but he doesn’t have to do it as dramatically as sitting on the floor.) Or that one time where he actually laid on the step below her. Or with Attolia who he technically matches ranks with, he still sits on a pillow at her feet.

And it’s just so cute because it seems unintentional but knowing Gen, it’s one of his master plans to make sure the women in his life don’t feel like he’s trying to steal their power.

Guess what came in the mail today!! My collection of Queen’s Thief book covers is almost complete. I’m just waiting on (I think) one more QoA copy to come, and then I’ll do a big master post of all the new and old books together!
