JJJ Book Club Pick for March: 'Illuminate' by Aimee Agresti

JJJ Book Club Pick for March: 'Illuminate' by Aimee Agresti

JJJ had the hardest time picking out the number one pick for our Book Club this month — all the books we read were so good!

But in the end, we had to shine some light on Aimee Agresti‘s “Illuminate.”

WHAT IS IS ABOUT? Haven Terra’s soul is in danger, but only she can save herself. Brainy, shy high school outcast Haven can’t believe her luck when she’s recruited for a prestigious internship at a historic hotel in Chicago, under the leadership of powerful and alluring Aurelia Brown, dashing Lucian Grove and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons.

But just as she becomes seduced by their glitzy and mysterious world, Haven uncovers the evil agenda at the hotel: they’re devils in the business of buying souls. And hers is the most valuable of all: she’s an angel in training and the devils aim to turn her to their side. Helping her along the way: a mysterious book instructing her to believe in herself; and her budding friendship with soft-spoken classmate Lance, who has a secret of his own.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ IT? Such an enchanting book and we can’t wait to read more in the Gilded Wings series. While the cover reels you in (how could it not? It’s so pretty!), the words inside keep you reading. There’s angels, mystery, beauty…which all rolled up into one, makes it magical. Follow Aimee on Twitter @AimeeAgresti.

HONORABLE MENTIONS: “Me & Earl & The Dying Girl” by Jesse Andrews, “Dark Eyes” by William Richter, “Wonder Show” by Hannah Barnaby and “Slide” by Jill Hathaway.
