Blog Tour: Charlotte Brontë Before Jane Eyre (excerpts, teasers, and giveaway)

CHARLOTTE BRONTE BEFORE JANE EYRE

Hello, hello, hello!!!

It’s mid-week again and happy Wednesday! 😀

Since it was our Mid-Autumn Festival, a.k.a. Moon Festival, last Friday, we got a short holiday back then and I managed to do nothing except sleeping, eating, reading, repeat. LOL Better yet, I’ll be taking this Friday off (that’s 2 days from now!) and spend some quality time with my family while celebrating my grandma’s birthday at a lovely resort in the Eastern part of the island. ❤ *Eeeeps*

Hence, I’m feeling kinda high all week long despite the fact that I’ve been working nonstop for weeks lately. 😛 Anyways, it’s 1:30 in the morning and here I am, sharing an upcoming graphic novel featuring the most classic female character/author, Charlotte Brontë and her life before Jane Eyre…at least that’s what the title implies.

All right, folks! Fasten your seatbelts and let the ride begin!

Blog Tour: City of Beasts by Corrie Wang

CITY OF BEASTS

Hello, everyone!! Happy mid-week again! 🙂

Unlike my previous preference, I realize that sharing new releases without reviewing them is also a great way to let you know what I’m excited about. 🙂

Without further ado, you’ll find more book info, buy links, excerpts, giveaway and PREORDER CAMPAIGN in the following post! Let’s go!

Hello, beautiful people (*insert Ed Sheeran ft. Khalid’s new song*)!!

Today I’m freshening up your brand-new week with a fabulous book and a newly discovered author called The Bar Next Door by Katia Rose. Since my stop for this book blitz is supposed to be promotional only, plus I’m also halfway through the book, so in the following content, you’ll only find many yummilicious teasers, buy links, author’s info, and an international giveaway (ending in 3 days!!). As for my promised review, I’ll wait until I’m completely finished before putting my full thought up here. BUT, I can guarantee you that this book is totally worthy of trying because from what I’ve read so far, the entire plot has totally exceeded my expectation. ❤

Bookish Unboxing | OwlCrate 2019 July box: Tournaments & Trials

Hello, lovely people!

How’s your day so far? In case anyone’s curious, I started writing this unboxing post on Aug. 11th, right after having our typhoon holiday but then I sort of forgot to schedule so here I am again, picking up where the post’s left one week later. Anyway, last week was as busy as I expected and guess what? It’s Sunday night and just thinking about having to go to work tomorrow exhausts me, haha.

Busy working schedule aside, I’ve done a wee bit too much bookish shopping on impulse in the past few days and I…regret nothing. LOL I’ll make sure to share with you my latest treasure hunt. 🙂 For today’s unboxing, it’s my second OwlCrate box, a monthly subscription box featuring the hottest YA book (always signed by the author and with an exclusive cover) and some goodies going along with the theme, and as usual, I enjoy unboxing it and getting surprised by the items inside. 😀

Without further ado, let the OwlCrate unboxing party begin!

Bookish Unboxing | Once Upon a Book Club April Young Adult box: The Case of a Reclusive Writer

 

Hints

Hello, bookish peeps!!!

I hope you’re doing fantastic because I am! This is an unboxing I’ve been dying to share with all of you because everything is too perfect to be true. In case you’re wondering, Once Upon a Book Club Box is a monthly subscription book box featuring both Adult and Young Adult boxes so you can choose between the two based on their hints, or you can simply order both for double pleasure. 😛

Long story short, since I’ve been eyeing this box forever, when I saw their April YA hint, I was ten thousand percent sure their book-of-the-month would be the one on the very top of my 2019 most-anticipating read, so of course I placed my first ever order right away. 😀

Now I’m beyond excited to show you all the bookish goodies in this box and how amazingly the wonderful ladies working behind this lovely business have curated for this one. ❤

Are you ready?

Review: Into the Hollow by Lynn Vroman

36056036The hollow was the perfect place to hide.

Or so Free’s dad thought. His plan: flee California with Free’s five-year-old brother illegally in tow, hide out in the mountains of West Virginia, make fast cash during ginseng season, then escape to a nicer place where the law can’t find them. Free isn’t thrilled about living in a holler alongside drug dealers and thieves, but she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her family safe. Unfortunately, with their father disappearing into the woods with increasing frequency, Free and her brother exist largely alone. Until their neighbor Cole appears with lots of questions.

Cole’s spent his entire life in the holler—and his entire life working out a way to leave his druggie mother and incarcerated brother. As the editor of the school newspaper, he’s an expert at getting to the bottom of a story, and he’s determined to crack Free—who seems un-crack-able.

When the family she was desperate to protect is ripped apart, Free turns to Cole for help, the only person willing. But while her plan escalates, Free can’t deny the pull she feels toward the boy with too many questions—and who holds just as many secrets. As they become closer, she finds that Cole might need her help as much as she needs his.  (From: Goodreads)
