Abby J. Reed and Her Quest to Authordom

Hi Everyone! My name is Abby J. Reed, author of WHEN PLANETS FALL. Two of the most interesting things about me is that I used to be so flexible I could turn my feet entirely backwards. (As in, I’m facing north and my feet are literally pointing south, backwards.) And I have Chronic Migraine. What do being crazy flexible and migraine have to do with […]

Blog Tour & Spotlight – Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves

Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.

Her life might well be over.

Once Upon a Con – Let’s Talk Geekerella!

Prepare for the gush, y’all, because I absolutely LOVED this book! I can count on one hand the number of YA contemporaries I’ve truly enjoyed: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, The Upside of Unrequited, and The Female of the Species. And now Geekerella! This book is adorable. I don’t have any other word for it. You’ll find all the familiar elements of Cinderella in this new spin involving a blogger/sci-fi […]

Small Community, Big Voice

Small Community, Big Voice

What is our role as book bloggers? BookTubers? Bookstagrammers?  It’s a question I ask myself more and more lately. What kind of impact do we make on the book world? What is our place? Is our work worth it? I can only speak about blogging and marginally about bookstagram so my thoughts are more centered around those but blogging is hard. Much harder than just reading […]

In Which I Read a Book About a Witch? Maybe? Question Mark?

In Which I Read a Book About a Witch? Maybe? Question Mark?

I don’t normally do live updates while reading a book. Honestly, I tend to read so fast that it’s just not worth it to me and most of the time I don’t have so much to say that I feel like it’s necessary. It can wait until the review. But this particular title stirred up a lot of….thoughts….that I felt important to share with y’all, […]

Review – The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

This book needs to be required reading for everyone, though I think teens especially. It’s weird, we talk about representation in the book community in regards to certain groups of people but you know what I don’t see as much of? Good rep of teens. Just… teens. I read a LOT of young adult fiction and it hasn’t been that long since I was a […]

Review – Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun

Review – Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun

I should have known better. I knew, when I picked up Heir to the Sky, that it was a YA dystopian (well, it says fantasy but it read more like a dystopian to be honest) and as much as I want to love the genre it’s always hit or miss. And this book was definitely a miss. We have some floating islands above the earth and the […]

Review – A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

This book changed my entire opinion on this author’s work. If y’all missed my review of The Star-Touched Queen, I’ll just say that it really just wasn’t the book for me. Despite the beautiful writing and descriptive storytelling, I found the story far too slow to keep my attention. It’s safe to say that A Crown of Wishes was the complete opposite, drawing on the best aspects […]

Review – Last Night with the Duke by Amelia Grey

Review – Last Night with the Duke by Amelia Grey

Oh hey. Another duke. Fancy that. I love my romances but there are other ranks in society to pick from. Really. Promise. But quite often the gentleman of the book tends to be some kind of noble so I won’t fault the author for choosing a duke. I’m just going to sit back and silently judge the entire genre because it’s starting to get old. ANYWAY, I […]
