The time it was about The Sleeping Prince

The time it was about The Sleeping Prince

I’ve been a fangirl for Melinda Salisbury since I first lost my shit fangirled all over her on Twitter after reading The Sin-Eater’s Daughter.  Since then I have wooed her with Jeff Goldblum photos, dinosaur gifs, and shouty caps.  So it goes without saying that as soon as I saw the sign up for The Sleeping Prince blog tour, I couldn’t type fast enough. Before we get to Melinda’s interview, let’s check out the book. Return to the darkly beautiful […]


The time it was about You Know Me Well

The time it was about You Know Me Well

I’ve been a fan of Nina LaCour’s for a long time.  I’ve seen her a handful of times, but most recently at YallWest and that’s where this story begins. Once upon a time or last week, I got an email from a publicist from Griffin Teen inviting me to be a part of the blog tour for You Know Me Well by Nina and David Levithan.  He told me that he had been following me on Twitter for a while, […]


The time it was about Girl Against the Universe

The time it was about Girl Against the Universe

I was lucky enough to read an early draft of Girl Against the Universe last year because I’m a spoiled brat Paula was looking for someone who lived in SoCal to read it and see if it made sense. I devoured it, loved it, and named it one of my top 5 books for 2015.  Oh and when you get to the part about the California burritos? Yeah.  You’re welcome. So of course when it came time to be on […]


The time it was about DNFing books

The time it was about DNFing books

Hiiiiii!! So, I’ve never posted a discussion post before.  I have one drafted about giveaway cheaters, but that’s a whole separate thing and I don’t know if I’ll ever actually post it.  Anyhoo.  Settle in for what is almost guaranteed to be a hot mess. A few days ago, Christina and I were talking about a book that I had just finished and she was about to start.  Somehow the conversation morphed into a brief discussion about rating books that […]

The time it was about Nil on Fire

The time it was about Nil on Fire

I’ve been a fangirl for Lynne Matson and her books since the first Nil book was published. Thankfully, I’ve had a chance to flail all over her when she came to Pasadena for the Fierce Reads tour last year.  It goes without saying that when I saw the invite to sign up for the blog tour, I couldn’t type fast enough. Before we get to Lynne’s interview, let’s check out the book. Despite Rives and Skye’s attempt to destroy Nil, […]


The time it was about Circle of Jinn

The time it was about Circle of Jinn

Once upon a time, I got an email from Lori Goldstein asking if I would be interested in featuring her upcoming book, Circle of Jinn.  I read the synopsis and was interested, but hadn’t read either book in the series.  After explaining that I try not to feature anything I haven’t read and loved {to make the fangirling authentic}, I asked her to give me a couple of days to get my greedy hands on them and read them. Fast […]


The time it was about Queen of Hearts

The time it was about Queen of Hearts

I first saw the cover for Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes in the super secret back room of Mysterious Galaxy.  After I was done eyeballing the cover, I made sure to make a note about it and how badly I needed to read it.  When I finally got my greedy hands on it, I enjoyed seeing the set up for Wonderland from a new point of view. Before we get to Colleen’s interview, let’s check out the book. As […]
