Read-to-Review: Rowan Revived by Taylor Danae Colbert

50170375. sx318 sy475 Miss Fix-It—that’s me. And when my sister and nephew are in danger, it’s my natural instinct to step in and get them out of Boston. The girl with the plan, always.

We land at the Rowan Inn—a charming bed-and-breakfast on the shores of the Chesapeake. A sweet little haven we’re hoping will bring us the peace we so desperately need.

Instead, it brings us Jesse Rowan, the gruff and grumpy son of the original owners. The same guy who is single-handedly sinking the Inn faster than an anchor in the bay. But we need a place to crash until I can figure out our next move, so I convince him to let us stay in exchange for help around the place.

At first, he’s rude, sarcastic, and standoffish. But after a few months of working around the Inn together, I realize he’s not as callous as he’d like us to think. And I realize that maybe the Inn isn’t the only project I want to take on. He needs some fixing, too.

But the Inn has to be just a pitstop for us. And as long as we’re on the run, Jesse Rowan can’t be my final destination. (From: Goodreads)

When Evie Perez is cut off from everything she loves and forced to move to Iceland for the summer, she takes her canvas and paintbrushes into the picturesque cherry orchard behind her guesthouse. She stains her lips with stolen cherries in the midnight sun and paints a boy she’s never met.

Oskar is startled to discover Evie in his family’s orchard, and even more surprised to see himself on her canvas. Too ashamed to reveal his stutter, he remains silent as Evie returns day after day to paint, spilling confessions she wouldn’t even tell her priest.

As Evie’s life back home unravels, Oskar wants to comfort her with words, but he knows he’s waited too long, so he uses music instead. But when it all comes to the surface, he knows that if Evie can’t forgive him for lying, he may never forgive himself for surviving.

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.
