ARC Review: The Ivies by Alexa Donne

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!

ARC Review: The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He

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!

Blog Tour: Covet by Tracy Wolff

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 TBR and Beyond Tours for having me as a part of their tour for Of Silver and Shadow (make sure you check out all of the other stops on the tour too!), and thank you so much to Flux books for making this tour happen! I had seen so many good things about Of Silver and Shadow on Book Twitter, so when I saw this tour, I had to try and be a part of it! And I’m so glad I was! This book was so good and had everything I want/love in a fantasy novel!
