Monday Memories: The Winner’s Curse

Monday Memories is a weekly feature hosted by Miss Print and the Book Bandit. Monday Memories will be ending on December 29 after which this weekly feature will no longer be active.


This week for Monday Memories I’m talking about The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski.

The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about this book before Monday Memories came to a close. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this books so I was able to read it early and had ample time to harass people to read it (even interviewing Marie on the blog tour which was a thrill).

It’s no exaggeration to say that this is one of my favorite books not only of 2014 but of all time. I am usually one of those horrible people who doesn’t buy books and instead holds onto ARCs (I just don’t have that much coin to spend on books, sorry) but this one I made an exception and bought a hardcover (something I plan to do with the rest of the series).

It’s thrilling to see a series I love so much getting so much attention with best of lists and good sales and I’m beyond excited to see how it all comes together by the end of the series.

The Winner’s Curse also reminds me a lot of Megan Whalen Turner’s glorious Queen’s Thief series so this one has the bonus of filling a Eugenides shaped hole in my heart now that I’m caught up with that series.

If you want to join the fun (until Monday Memories shuts down at the end of December), just add your link below.

  1. I loved this book, too! I actually hadn’t heard of it before I was browsing my library’s audiobook section. The cover is gorgeous, and the narration on the audiobook was so engrossing! I think I, too, will need a hard copy of this. (I’m a teacher, I have pretty much zero coin to spend on books). However, I adored Kestral. She is one of my favorite heroines in YA. What a bad ass.
