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 Penguin Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Tell Me When You Feel Something! I really loved the summary of this book because not only do I love thrillers, but when I was in high school, my doctor kept telling me that I should go be one of those mock patients (I could never figure out how to apply, so it never happened, but it sounded like such a cool program). Overall, the premise was cool, but I had a hard time with the execution.
Thank you so much to Harper Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Sisters of the Snake! This book came out on June 15th, but because of work and life getting in the way, I didn’t finish reading it until yesterday. I recently have read so many more Indian or Indian-esque books, and I’m kinda loving it.
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 Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire for letting me read an eARC of the Nature of Witches! This past week or so have been so busy so even though The Nature of Witches came out on June 1st, I wasn’t able to finish reading it/get this review out until now (man, my day job is getting in the way of books haha).
OMG y’all can you believe that it’s already June?! How the heck did May go by so fast? Onto the summer though! Speaking of the summer, let’s talk about my first official summer post- my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours tour for The Immortal Game by Talia Rothschild and A.C. Harvey! And thank you to Swoon Reads for making this tour happen. I love Greek Mythology- I’ve always been fascinated by the Greek Gods and all of the stories around them, so I was the most excited to read this book! The Immortal Game came out on May 25th, so make sure you go grab it now- and if you’re in the US, we’ve got a giveaway to go along with this blog tour too, so definitely go enter that before it ends on June 7th.
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!
Happy Saturday y’all! I just got home from a very intense cycling class and I’m so excited to finally share my stop on the Ember of Night tour by Turn the Page Tours! Ember of Night is the first book in a a new YA series from Entangled Teen that came out on May 4th. There are a lot of heavier parts in it (dealing with abuse etc.) and the author does provide trigger warnings at the beginning of the book, so make sure you read those before you start reading the book! I’m going to give y’all my review and share some of my favorite quotes as well as some information about the author and how to connect with her, but before I do that, Turn the Page Tours and Entangled Teen are sponsoring a giveaway for a finished copy of Ember of Night that’s open until May 11 (USA only though), so go enter it now!
Happy Thursday y’all! Woop woop, it’s almost the weekend! So, I follow lots of authors on Instagram and some of them follow me back, so I was so excited when Alicia J Novo, the author of Unwritten reached out to me to review it! The summary for Unwritten was so cool, so I was so excited to read it!
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!
