These ‘A Kingdom for a Stage’ Bookstagrams Make Us Want to Join the Revolution

These 'A Kingdom for a Stage' Bookstagrams Make Us Want to Join the Revolution

In case you were unaware, the one and only Heidi Heilig is one of our absolute faves. She is 1. hilarious, 2. brilliant, and 3. has brought us the absolute gems that are For a Muse of Fire and A Kingdom for a Stage.

The second book in the Shadow Players trilogy came out recently and honestly, in between rereads, we’ve spent more time than we are willing to admit staring at the cover. Can you blame us?! The art, stunning. The design, captivating. And the story? Top-notch.

In celebration of this series and our girl Jetta, we found some truly *epic* bookstagrams we just had to share with you. Scroll down to see them all, and don’t miss A Kingdom for a Stage!

 

10 Bookstagrams of A Kingdom for a Stage

THAT HAVE US READY TO RISE UP

What are some things that help you really connect with a story? For me, anything well-written in a style I love immediately plugs me in. But for the most part it’s usually seeing a bit of myself in the story somehow. Maybe it is a topic that I really love, a trait I admire that a character has, or having gone through/am going through something the characters are. . 🔥 Thank you to @epicreads for gifting me a copy of Heidi Heilig’s latest release “A Kingdom for a Stage”. (I got book one, “For a Muse of Fire” in my @litjoycrate last year!) I was reading through Heilig’s comments on how she wanted to write about a main character who shares a mental illness with her and seeks a real life treatment for it. In addition to this, she wanted to create a magic world out of her obsession with theater, where in her youth her manic highs let her shine. This added to her obsession of death and spirits that occupied her mind when she was at her lows. (I’ll put the synopsis of book one in the comments today!) . 🔥 I love when authors share this kind of background information on themselves and how it shaped a story they wrote. We always say that certain characters helped us not feel so alone in our plights, but it’s nice to know when there is a real person behind it— whether you relate to a high or a low point with the characters. Do you have any specific books or authors that you connected with on a deeper level? I connected so hard with “The Astonishing Color of After” and with Lara Jean from TATBILB on their family life + what it can feel like being half Asian and how it often feels hard finding where you fit. . 🔥 #foramuseoffire #akingdomforastage #heidiheilig #newrelease #fantasy #yafantasy #amreading #bookstagram

Caught in a war between the rebels and the invading colonizers, Jetta must make an impossible choice—save her people or protect her sanity. . . Acclaimed author Heidi Heilig creates a rich world inspired by Southeast Asian cultures and French colonialism. Her characters are equally complex and nuanced, including a bipolar heroine and biracial love interest. Told from Jetta’s first-person point-of-view, as well as chapters written as play scripts, and ephemera such as songs, maps, and letters, A Kingdom for a Stage is a vivid, fast-paced journey that weaves magic, simmering romance, and the deep bonds of family with the high stakes of epic adventure. It will thrill fans of Stephanie Garber, Renée Ahdieh, and Sabaa Tahir! . . I am so excited to partner with @epicreads for a great giveaway!
