The time it was a monthly recap {11}

The time it was a monthly recap {11}

Hi everyone!  Another month has gone by…well, technically not yet, but this weekend is YallWest and I’ll be spending the evening getting packed for that, so I doubt I’ll have time to read.  Or post this.  Hence the early recap. Ready to settle in? In April I read a total of 25 books. It should have been more, but after reading The Star-Touched Queen, I didn’t pick anything up for 6 days.  Yeah, it was that good. {Click on the […]

The time it was about Wild Swans

The time it was about Wild Swans

I’ve been in love with Jessica Spotswood’s words since the first page of Born Wicked.  When the premise for her new book came out, my greedy hands were immediately itching for it.  Of course I loved Wild Swans when I read it. And I basically begged to be part of the blog tour. Before we get to Jessica’s interview, let’s check out Wild Swans. The summer before Ivy’s senior year is going to be golden; all bonfires, barbeques, and spending […]

The time it was about Reading Rewind {5}

I was on my own for this month’s Reading Rewind. At first I planned to read Unearthly, but for fun, I put it to a poll on Twitter. Annnnnnd the winner was: That’s right! You guys chose Shatter Me.  This book wasn’t even on my short list of books to feature, but I was moving it around on my bookshelf and threw it on the poll just for fun.  {There may be some statements that would be considered spoilers in […]

The time it was a re-release

The time it was a re-release

I’ve been a huge fan of Paula Stokes AKA Fiona Paul since the first word on the first page of her book.  I’ve had her on the blog for all of the Eternal Rose books and when Paper Lantern Lit announced that they were going to be re-branding the series, I definitely wanted to be a part of promoting it. Today book 2 re-releases under it’s new name.  It was originally called Belladonna, but now it’s known as Poisonous Touch.  […]


The time it was raining

The time it was raining

LA Times Festival of Books is always a sure thing. Well, that’s not entirely true since I didn’t go last year. However, once I saw that Emery Lord was going to be there, I put it on the calendar. As always, we got to the USC campus early. We like to park in a specific lot that is cheap {$12!} and close to the YA stage {where I spend most of my day}. I was able to have a morning […]

The time it was about Dreamology

The time it was about Dreamology

I requested Dreamology on a whim {hello, gorgeous cover} and I was so so so excited to read it.  After devouring it and loving it, I flailed all over Lucy on Twitter.  When she didn’t run away, I asked if she would be willing to do an interview.  And she agreed! Before we get to her answers, let’s check out the book! For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together they have traveled the world […]

The time it was about Nightstruck

The time it was about Nightstruck

I was sent Nightstruck by Jenna Black by someone whose opinion I trust and after devouring it and loving it, I jumped at the chance to have Jenna on the blog! Before we get to her answers, let’s check out the book. The night is the enemy, and the city of Philadelphia is its deadliest weapon. Becket is an ordinary teenage girl, wrestling with the upheaval of her parents’ divorce. Her biggest problems to date have been choosing which colleges […]
