Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! Check out this week’s post to share your links.

I thought this would be a fun meme to jump on this week since it’s always fun to go digging in my TBR and see what forgotten books might have made their way on there. Even though I added this week’s pick less than a month ago, it had already completely slipped my mind.


The Phantom’s Apprentice

35965526Author: Heather Webb

Genre: Historical Fiction, Mystery, Retelling

Publication Date: February 6, 2018

In this re-imagining of Phantom of the Opera, meet a Christine Daaé you’ve never seen before…

Christine faces an impossible choice: be a star at the Paris opera as Papa always wanted, or follow her dream—to become a master of illusions. First, she must steal the secrets of the enigmatic master who haunts her, survive a world of treachery and murder, and embrace the uncertain promise of love. To succeed, she will risk her life in the grandest illusion of all.


I’m not usually one to actively seek out retellings, but I’m a sucker for musicals, and I just saw The Phantom of the Opera for the second time last August (haven’t read the original book yet, but shhhhh). This re-imagining popped up in my Goodreads radar the week that it was released in February, and needless to say, it immediately caught my eye and found its way onto my TBR. The reviews look overwhelmingly positive and praise the setting and magical charm, which just makes me all the more excited to get my hands on it!

So who else is a musical lover out there?

    1. Yes yes yes! I love everything about this. How was the original book? I’ve been wanting to read it for ages. And omg, please rant to me about musicals any time! I just saw Waitress myself and thought it was adorable. How’d you enjoy Les Mis? I haven’t seen that one live yet.

      1. The book is a little different than the play but it’s still good. I enjoyed comparing the two. Les Mis was awesome. I have the soundtrack in my car. I didn’t enjoy the movie as much. Way more powerful on stage. There hasn’t been a musical I haven’t enjoyed yet. Saw Wicked twice and Rent three times. I’m a musical geek

      2. Musicals are the best! So glad you’ve enjoyed everything you’ve seen 🤗🤗🤗 The music is always so fun and catchy, and the actors are so talented! Rent’s a fave of mine 🙂
