ShadowsAndLight_Ebook.jpg

On Wednesday I should’ve been part of the team helping to show off the new cover of Selenia Paz’s new book Shadows & Light – because of things some of you may be aware of, I didn’t get the post up in time. Shadows and Light is the final book of the Leyendas Trilogy, a MG contemporary fantasy series which will be published by Snowy Wings Publishing in early 2020. The cover was designed by Qamber Kids with custom artwork by Noora Murad Ali.

Blog Tour Promo & Giveaway: Resurrection Girls by Ava Morgyn

Resurrection GirlsOlivia Foster hasn’t felt alive since her little brother drowned in the backyard pool three years ago. Then Kara Hallas moves in across the street with her mother and grandmother, and Olivia is immediately drawn to these three generations of women. Kara is particularly intoxicating, so much so that Olivia not only comes to accept Kara’s morbid habit of writing to men on death row, she helps her do it. They sign their letters as the Resurrection Girls.

But as Kara’s friendship pulls Olivia out of the dark fog she’s been living in, Olivia realizes that a different kind of darkness taints the otherwise lively Hallas women—an impulse that is strange, magical, and possibly deadly.

PSA 📢

So I just wanted to let you all know that my blog is having to take a bit of a backseat due to some things going in on my personal life; because of these things I’ve had to pull out of a bunch of blog tours – I will still be reviewing the books I signed up for however it may not be on the day I was allotted. I have a lot of reviews to catch up on so I hope you can all be patient whilst waiting for me to get back on my blogging game. My apologies to any authors, publishers or tour organisers that I’m letting down.

Blog Tour Review: Nadine by John Steinberg

NadineSo, although I’m back dating this post it is going up a day late (boo you depression) so I would like to apologise to both Rachel & John Steinberg.

Nadine is a story of a woman & the memory she left behind; it’s about the West End, dancing & falling in love with the wrong people. It’s not my usual kind of read, but there were definitely parts that I really enjoyed.

😍😢🧑Ballet emoji🏳️‍🌈✡️🧠

I was sent this book to review as part of a blog tour organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.

 

⚠️ Contemplation of abortion, mentions of the Holocaust, cancer,
dementia, suicide, xenophobia, references to people trafficking, drug use ⚠️

YALC & LFCC 2019 – Part One

YALC letters.pngThis year was my fourth time visiting the Young Adult Literature Convention (or, YALC), the bookish section of London Film & Comicon (or, LFCC). However, this year was very different from my previous three visits – the biggest difference was that I didn’t go on my own this year, but I also spent a lot of my time in LFCC this year, as the YALC line-up didn’t excite me as much as usual.

This was initially going to be one big post, but I ranted too much, so I’ve separated it in two – today I’m going to talk about YALC & tomorrow I’m going to talk about LFCC (my Sum-Up Sunday post for July will be next week instead).

Cover Reveal: Thorn by Intisar Khanani

“Thorn is a lovely atmospheric fairytale fantasy about a girl and her found family. I loved it!” – Gail Carriger, New York Times-bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate series

Thorn
I am genuinely thrilled to be helping to show the world for Intisar Khanani’s upcoming book, Thorn. Reading the synopsis of this book excited me so much, but the cover has just made me even more excited to eventually read it – I’ll definitely be buying a print edition to show off on my shelves.

The cover has been designed by Jenny Zemanek (& what an awesome job she’s done) & is being released on March 14th 2020 (in the UK it’s March 24th) by HarperTeen (heads up guys, I’d love an ARC).

More below about the book & the author.
