A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A lot of authors seem to be going for the trilogy type series. It offers all the adventure and excitement of a lengthy series condensed into three books. One of the series I enjoyed the most was the Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray. The first book, A Great and Terrible Beauty. Is one of my favorite books, by far. It combines both the time period of the Victorian era with the fantasy of magic. This book is great if you’re into fantasy or adventure.

Gemma Doyle, a sixteen-year-old girl has a lot to worry about. Not only must she worry about becoming a woman, what with all the parties she must attend and all the interesting men she will meet, but now she’s having uncontrollable visions of the future that haunt her life. As if that wasn’t enough she finds that her late mother was part of a society that now wants Gemma to fulfill a prophecy. This book will take you on a fantastic journey to new worlds and to a different time when all a girl had to worry about was how to dance.
