You know how sometimes you read a book that’s just so incredibly amazing and then you kind of don’t know what to do with yourself afterwards? I felt that way when I read Where Dreams Descend last year and it happened again when I finished When Night Breaks. Thank you so much to Wednesday books and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book! Make sure y’all go out and grab this one tomorrow (and if you haven’t read Where Dreams Descend yet, make sure you grab that one first since it’s the first book in the duology and you’ll 100% be lost without it).
Happy Sunday y’all! I hope everyone’s been having a good weekend so far. Mine has been great because I spent a good amount of time yesterday reading an incredible book- which y’all are about to hear all about because today’s my stop on the Vespertine tour by Turn the Page tours! Thank you so much to Turn the Page tours for having me as a part of this tour and thank you so much to Margaret K. McElderry Books for sponsoring this tour and sending me an eARC and a beautiful finished copy early! Also, along with this great blog tour, up for grabs is two (2) copies of VESPERTINE by Margaret Rogerson, one a physical finished copy and one a digital copy. Open USA only. This giveaway is open through October 9th, so make sure you enter it ASAP!
Thank you so much to Atria Books and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina! I wasn’t sure what I was going to think about this book, because some of the reviews said that it was going to be literary fantasy or magical realism and I normally have a hard time getting fully sucked into those kinds of books (100% a me issue, not a those books issue) but I didn’t have that problem with this one at all!
Happy Sunday y’all! To all of my friends in the US, woohoo! It’s a long weekend! I’m definitely glad that I get an extra day off tomorrow because I have SO MANY books I need to read haha Speaking of books, today’s my stop on the Dark and Shallow Lies tour by TBR and Beyond Tours (sponsored by Razorbill, so thank you to both TBR and Beyond and Razorbill!) and y’all, I cannot wait to share this book with you!!! Dark and Shallow Lies comes out on September 7, so y’all definitely need to go out and pre-order or put in a request in your library or something ASAP (after reading my review)!
Happy Sunday y’all! Thank you so much to TBR and Beyond Tours for having me as a part of the Burden Falls tour and thank you so much to Dial books for young readers for sponsoring this tour! If y’all haven’t a) heard of this book or b) grabbed this book yet, definitely got on that (but first, read my review)!
Thank you so much to Bloomsbury YA and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of This Poison Heart! I had seen this book everywhere before I was approved for the eARC, so when I was approved, I was the most excited! Life got in the way, so I wasn’t able to finish it/get this review out until after the book was published (This Poison Heart came out on June 29), but that’s good for y’all because you can go grab it as soon as you’re done reading my review!
Thank you so much to Avon Books and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of It Happened One Summer! I love every book I’ve ever read by Tessa Bailey, so I was the most excited when I was approved for this one! It Happened One Summer is out now, so make sure you go grab it ASAP!
Thank you so much to Crown Books for Young Readers and Netgalley for letting me read an ARC of The Ivies! This book came out on May 25th, so make sure y’all go grab it ASAP! I always find college decisions and prep and the pressure that people put on themselves for it fascinating. I mean let’s also be real, I went to a crazy public high school school that also had Ivy quotas and people battling for class rank and everyone who wanted to be competitive was taking 8-10 APs, running clubs, playing sports and instruments, and just doing everything they could (besides sabotage) to get in where they wanted. We had our Harvards, our Yales, our MITs, our Princetons, our Browns, our Stanfords, a bunch of Dukes, along with all of the other crazy schools you can think of (I grew up in a college town, next to another university, with lots of people whose parents taught at one of the universities or worked in either of the university hospitals or big tech/pharma that we have around here, so lots of privilege and lots of opportunity for people to do some of those things they need to in order to go to one of those big name schools). Anyway, enough about my high school- let’s talk about The Ivies!
Man y’all, when I saw that Text Publishing had The Ones We’re Meant to Find available on Netgalley as read now for the US even though they’re based in Australia, I jumped on it because this has been one of my most anticipated books for a while now! It releases today, May 4th, so if you haven’t already grabbed it or picked it up from your library or talked to a friend about borrowing it from them when they’re done reading it, you need to get on that ASAP!
Oh man y’all, we’re finally here. I finally finished this series that pretty much killed me. The first time I read An Ember in the Ashes, it was because Bee (my best friend and a huge part of Avni Reads, if you’re new around here) told me I had to. This was after both Ember and Torch were out, so I read them both, and OMG I was so hooked. Then when Reaper came out, Bee and I went to Sabaa’s signing and it was amazing and fun fact! You know how one of the Jaduna in Sky is named A’vni? Well, that’s because Sabaa liked my name! When she was signing my books, she asked me if Avni meant anything (it’s Hindi for earth and it’s derived from Sanskrit) and she made the person from Flyleaf books (my local Indie) give her an extra sticky note to write it down, so I was very excited to see a version of my name in there! Ok, but enough about that. Let’s talk about how much I loved this book instead!
