Happy Monday y’all! Ugh I hate how the last few working days before a vacation always seem to drag on so much longer than they should- I’m off for the rest of the year starting Wednesday and I want it to be here now! While the days have been dragging, you know what else has been dragging? Reading! I’ve had the hardest time staying interested in the books I’m reading and I can’t tell if it’s because I’m not enjoying them (well, with this one, that was the reason, but you’ll read all about that later) or if it’s just because everything is going so slowwwwly! Anyway, thank you so much to Delacorte Press and Netgalley for letting me read The Excalibur Curse! This is the third book in the Camelot Rising series and I loved books one and two, which I why I was super excited to read it (and very disappointed when I just didn’t like it).
Happy Tuesday y’all! I 100% thought I had already reviewed this one, but I guess that’s what happens when I read too many books in a short span of time. Anyway, Shadow of Light came out on November 30th and is the sequel to Ember of Night and if you’ve read Ember of Night, I think you’ll enjoy where Shadow of Light took things! As always, thank you so much to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book!
Thank you so much to Disney-Hyperion and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Curse of the Specter Queen! I was never someone who watched Indiana Jones (my family was just never into them), but I love the idea of them, so the idea of a book set in the 20s in that style sounded super cool, so I was very excited to read it!
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!
Thank you so much to Tor Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Gilded Serpent! I loved books one and two in this series (Dark Shores and Dark Skies) so I was the most excited about reading this one!
Thank you so much to Turn the Page Tours for having me as a part of their tour for The Sky Above Us (and thank you to Philomel Books for sponsoring the tour and providing me with a free finished copy to review for this tour)! The Sky Above Us came out this past Tuesday, April 13, 2021 so make sure you go grab it now! Also, for US residents only, we have a great giveaway running until April 19th for a finished copy of the book, so make sure you go enter that- plus there’ll be two winners, so twice the chances you’ll get a book!
Thank you so much to Terminal Tours for having me as a part of the City of Spells blog tour and to Feiwel & Friends for making this blog tour happen in the first place! Make sure y’all go check out all of the amazing posts throughout the week because there are definitely going to be some great posts out there! City of Spells comes out today, March 9th, so make sure to go grab it as soon as you can!
Thank you so much to Turn the Page Tours and Entangled Teen for having me as a part of the Covet tour! I devoured Crave and Crush in about a day each, so I was sure I was going to love Covet when it came out on March 2nd (especially since I love Hudson and Grace) and I wasn’t disappointed at all!
Special shoutout to Turn the Page Tours in general- there were some shipping issues/delays and my post was originally supposed to go live on March 3rd, but I didn’t get my copy of Covet until then, so there was no way for me to read it, review it, and put together some of my favorite quotes for y’all by then, so Nikole was so nice and accommodating and let me switch my post to today instead. If y’all are ever looking to work with a book tour company, I highly recommend Turn the Page!
Also, make sure you check out all of the other great posts on the tour– AND there’s even a giveaway for a finished copy of Covet that ends on Monday, March 8th, so for sure get in on that! (USA only, unfortunately)
Thank you so much to Wednesday Books and Netgalley for letting me read an e-ARC of Down Comes the Night! It came out on March 2nd (with a bunch of other amazing books), so make sure you go check it out ASAP!
