Hello, bookish peeps!
How’s eyeryone’s June in general? This month is a whirlwind of meetings, unfinished business, and tons of workloads to me. And I have a feeling that this tight schedule won’t be over until late August…or even longer. *sigh* Aside from the exhausting reality, my bookish life has been quite amazing! Not only have I found my latest favorites, including All the Broken Pieces by L. D. Crichton, and the Caraval trilogy by Stephanie Garber, but I’ve also got some book mails/book boxes that I cannot wait to share with you. ❤
Before I get too carried away with all the other bookish goodies, let’s get back to today’s post, the Cover Reveal & Re-release party for Rebecca Shea’s Bound and Broken series! I signed up for this event simply because I think her books sound super fun and I’m currently reading the first installment, Broken by Lies, which is an enjoyable story so far. Besides, all of the works in this series can be read as standalones, making it even easier to dive in. 🙂
Without further ado, let the party begin, shall we?
Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.
When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed… (From: Goodreads)
“Dax Thatcher?” I ask. “But isn’t he sorta. . .old?”
Ugh. Celebrities. I mean, I know I took a job as a reporter for the Celebrity and Pop Culture department of our magazine, but it was just supposed to be a stepping stone to the more real stuff.
Despite the fact that Dax Thatcher was the subject of many of my teen fantasies—and I may or may not have an entire playlist made up of his music—he’s still just another star.
Until his golden eyes pierce through me that day on his Malibu deck. I find myself having dinner with him, going backstage with him, lying on the beach with him. I find myself telling him my deepest secrets, and diving deep into his less-than-perfect past.
And then I remember my assignment: a four-issue feature on Dax Thatcher. . .and his supermodel fiancée. Yep, he’s getting hitched.
I have to focus. I’m a serious journalist, and he is mere months from walking down the aisle with someone else. But that doesn’t stop me from wondering what those tattooed arms might feel like wrapped around me, or how soft the sheets on his California king bed are.
Yikes. This celebrity stuff might be a little more real than I thought. (From: Goodreads)
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!
Yep, you read it right! I just received my first ever bookish box two weeks ago and I could barely contain my excitement even talking about it right now!!!!! If you knew me well, you’d know that I’m obsessed with all kinds of bookish unboxing videos, blog posts, and bookstagram feed. To be honest, I’ve been eyeing these book boxes for YEARS, pretty much ever since they came to existence. Hence, color me surprise when I can FINALLY afford one with the money I earned!!! ❤
Long story short, I decided to treat myself with a Fairyloot box partly because I wanted to reward myself in celebration of the hectic yet overall thrilling 2018, considering everything insanely crazy and unbelievably incredible happened last year that totally changed my life, and partly because the February theme was Beast and Beauty, one of my few favorite fairytales of all time. The theme piqued my interest immensely so I placed my order without second thought.
Anyway, let’s get my very first unboxing started, shall we?
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! 😉
Happy Thursday, guys!
It’s been ages since I last posted a book tag but I’m glad my dear friend, Audrey @Audrey Writes Abroad, mentioned me in this super interesting book tag! Thanks, Audrey! ❤
So, let me present you with my first book tag of 2019: Where in the World?
Hope you’re having a lot of fun here! 😉
Hey, guys! Happy February!
First of all, I’m so excited that I finally wrote a review since the last time I did so, which was probably over a month ago, and the best part is that I highly recommend this book. Another thing that makes me super thrilled is that this is my very first time joining the Penguin Random House International Bloggers Team so they generously provided me with en e-copy of the book to review. Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful came out on December 4th, 2018, and even though I’ve read it back then, I spent the rest of the month(s) working on this review so I hope you’ll enjoy it. 🙂
This book gets me thinking so much about what it means to be a human, and what obstacles we may face in the uncertain future. It’s a wonderfully crafted sci-fi story and I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do. Besides, I also share my mini playlist at the end of the review just so you won’t fall asleep while reading it. 😛
Anyways, great to see you all and please sit back, relax, and have a blast!
Happy 2019, everyone!!!
Long time no see! I know I’m pretty late to the new year celebration but here I am, kickstarting the first blog post in 2019 with one of my top favorite authors, Emma Scott’s, brand new re-release, a.k.a. Unbreakable! *smiling sheepishly*
There will be a yummilicious teaser, exclusive excerpt, and a chance to win $25 Amazon gift card in this post so I hope you’ll have a blast here! Besides, I’ve got more book reviews/life updates/music power-ups for you in the following weeks so please stay tuned!! Thanks for your patience and let’s get this party started! ❤
