I can’t believe it’s already April (why do I always feel this way with each passing month!?) and for my first post this month, I’d like to share another highly coveted book in 2019 with all of you.
The Boy Who Steals Houses by C. G. Drews, the author of A Thousand Perfect Notes, and one of the most influential, popular bookstagrammers, book bloggers, and book reviewers, was released on April 4th, 2019. For those who aren’t familiar with C. G. Drews, she has most of her social media platforms under the handle @PaperFury. If you were into bookish social media, then I’m pretty sure you’ve seen one or two of her posts/pictures/shout-outs since they’re literally EVERYWHERE online. 🙂
Needless to say, I’m super excited about this book not only because it’s categorized as a Young Adult Contemporary, which is my top favorite, but also because of the gorgeousness of the cover AND the intriguing plot. Do you ever have this gut instinct that when you hear a book coming out from someone famous, or sometimes something about an upcoming book just rings a bell for you? And you know immediately that you must have that book? Well, that’s what I feel about both Drews’ books and I guess it’s due to the overall hype around the book community. *shrugs*
Enough rambling! Let’s get this book blitz party started, shall we? ❤
Today it’s my review stop for My Name is Rose, a book blog tour hosted by the amazing blog tour company I keep hearing about, Xpresso Book Tours. I’m super stoked that I manage to finish reading this book AND share my review with you right on time. 😛 By the way, this is also my first time working with Xpresso Book Tours and I’m loving the whole process; from the time frame of blog tour to the bloggers’ service they provide, there’s literally nothing to complain. 🙂
Anyway, let’s cut to the chase and get started!
Happy Sunday, everybody!
How’s your week going? I hope it’s amazing. 🙂 I’ve been crazily busy the entire week since I’m just starting to get the hang of my new job content. Hopefully things will look up eventually like they usually do. *fingers crossed* Anyway, I’m not here to talk about job or anything un-bookish; I’m here to share my latest new favorite read instead!
Today, I’m going to introduce my newly-discovered Contemporary Fiction author, Jennifer Millikin, and her newest book, Good on Paper. The writing style is so easy to get lost in and the storyline is even more captivating. I cannot wait for all of you to learn about this lovely author and this book! 😉
Hello, hello, hello!!!
Today I’m beyond thrilled to share this post with all of you because there’ll be some awesome stuff such as a highly-anticipated movie trailer for the upcoming novel, Five Feet Apart, written by Rachael Lippincott and published by the incredible Simon & Schuster BFYR, a playlist going along with my book review, and a giveaway for a hardcover copy of the book as a cherry on top!
Now you tell me, isn’t all of this EXCITING?
All right, without further ado, let’s get started!
Hey guys! Happy November!
How’s your week? If it weren’t an ordinary one, I hope it’s fabulous! 🙂 Mine was pretty typical as usual…until the cover drop for a book I’m highly anticipating came my way. ❤ Yep, you’ve got it right; it’s Jennifer Bardsley’s Narcosis Room indeed! It’s been FOREVER since I last participated in anything OWL HOLLOW PRESS related and for those who doesn’t know OHP, it’s a one-of-a-kind, created-by-the-most-amazing-people-in-the-world indie publisher, aiming to publish great books in genre fiction, contemporary, and non-fiction books.
Back to Narcosis Room, it’s a sci-fi novel which will be published in 2019 and let’s learn more about it…
P.S. There’ll be a giveaway by the end of the post so just keep reading on!
Old hurt runs deep…
After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.
Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.
Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.
Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass.
And he kept coming back for more.
I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.
Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.
But some wounds refuse to heal.
They say roses are the most beautiful…
Gin Fielding is counting the days until she escapes the small-town life of Roper, Missouri for college at NYU. She prefers to blend in, though she’s far from invisible. But when she protects a younger student from a bully, the spotlight turns on her in ways she never imagined.
I say that every rose has its thorn…
The Friday night lights shine bright on Chase Matthews. Roper’s golden boy, Chase can do no wrong, enjoying the small-town celebrity being the star quarterback brings. When Gin defends his little sister against a bully, he decides to lend her his star power and change her senior year in ways she never imagined.
But maybe the thorns are part of their beauty.
When Gin declines Chase’s invitation to be part of the elite Sweet Sixteen, the repercussions turn both their lives upside down. But amidst the chaos, Gin and Chase find solace in one another. Together, they confront the ugly truth– that sometimes glory has a dark side.
***Warning–Sweet Sixteen is an upper YA book with mature themes and is intended for readers 18+.

Hello! It’s me again. Here to bring you another thrilling cover reveal for one of my favorite Contemporary Romance authors, Claire Contreras‘ upcoming book, Because You’re Mine! I adored Claire’s Hearts series so I’m extremely excited to tell you that her next book will be available next week! ❤
Without further ado, let’s get down to business, shall we?
Hey, guys! Happy July!!! Today I’ve got not one but TWO exciting cover reveals for some of my most coveted reads this year for you so stay tuned and don’t forget to add them to your TBR. 😀
The first one is a contemporary romance written by my newly discovered favorite author, S.J. Sylvis, whose debut novel, Three Summers, has been one of the best books I’ve read this year. *I’ll be posting my full review of Three Summers this weekend. :P*
I fell in love with S.J. Sylvis’ writing style and plot design right after I dove into Three Summers; hence, when I heard she has another book coming out in July, I immediately signed up for both the cover reveal and ARC review opportunity. 😉
P.S. If you’re interested in participating in the upcoming book promo, I’ll leave the link later in the post!
A resourceful boy takes a glowing sailboat across the stars to search for his long-missing parents and becomes the target of pirates and an evil cabal with a sinister agenda.
Twelve-year-old Jake Flynn’s parents disappeared when he was a baby. On his twelfth birthday, the mystery of why his parent’s disappeared begins to unravel for he discovers a glowing talisman with a message from his father.
Jake is directed to a derelict sailboat, and he watches in awe as the talisman magically knits ropes and sails for it out of golden energy. Awash in light, the boat sails up into space, and the voyages of Jake Flynn begin.
During his quest to find his parents, Jake will encounter space pirates in tall sailing ships, channelers that can wield energy like magic, and evil cabalists led by a sinister snake-woman. Assisted by a young healer and her aged protector, a spirited cabin girl and salty space captain, Jake learns that he can too channel, and that he is central to stopping the cabalists from resurrecting a long-dead evil.
Puzzles, a pirate asteroid, walking the plank, fantastic magic, trapped treasure caves, multiple planets, and great ship battles – Jake must experience them all on this epic adventure. By the end, he will discover the truth of his destiny, understand that family transcends blood lines, and find that his own needs are sometimes less important than those of others.
Like other popular fantasy series, The Voyages of Jake Flynn: Destiny’s Gambit can appeal to the young and old alike. (From: Goodreads)
