Instagram Update: The Good Luck Girls by @cndwrites • Published by @hotkeybooks Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this stunning fantasy adventure from debut author #CharlotteNicoleDavis Aster, the protector Violet, the favorite Tansy, the medic Mallow, the fighter Clementine, the catalyst #THEGOODLUCKGIRLS “The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen. When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe. It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive.” #bookblogger #bookpost #books #bookstagram #book #reading #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #instabook #booknerd #love #bookshelf #bookaddict #bookaholic #freebie #bookstagrammer #author #instabooks #booksofinstagram #reader #booklove #literature
