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!

Book Blitz: The Boy Who Steals Houses by C. G. Drews (teasers & giveaway)

Hello, people!

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? ❤

Review: Say Something by Cathy Morrison

42645635

Sometimes the most difficult choice is the only one you can make.

Maggie knows the abuse she endured as a little girl isn’t all that defines her. She’s a strong student, varsity athlete, good person—but she’s careful not to let anyone close. Because letting someone in means risking the truth. And the truth didn’t work so well for her the first time.

Now there’s this great guy. He likes her. He makes her think that maybe, just maybe, she could be normal. She could be happy.

Just when things are getting good, the man who abused her barrels back into her life, and she discovers that another little girl is in danger. She can continue to hide her past—or confront it and risk her hard-won happiness.

She can say something.

*Abuse is NOT depicted in a graphic manner.

Bookish Unboxing | Fairyloot February Box: Beast and Beauty

Hello, guys!!!

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?

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)
