At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship.
Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
Okay, so I was kind of skeptical about reading this novel, but then I remembered how awesome Marissa Meyer's works are. Cath dreams of opening her own pastry shop, but is instead favored upon by the king. She meets a jester and her world turns upside down. I recommend this to anyone who loves remodeled fairytales. It was and easy read and I flew through in no time.

Go Into This One Knowing
Lighthearted, emotional ending.
"All opinions are 100% honest and my own."
"The music screeched and died. A cry arose from the guests as the ballroom was plunged into darkness.
There was the sound of breathing, the crinkle of petticoats, an uncertain stillness. Then there was a spark and a flicker. A ring of candlelight spiraled around one of the center-most chandeliers and a haunting glow stretched across the domed ceiling, leaving the guests drenched in shadows below.
Hanging from the lit chandelier was a vertical hoop that Catherine was sure hadn't been there before.
Lounging inside the hoop, apparently as comfortable as if it had been a chaise lounge, was a joker."
