Review: “The Traitor’s Kiss” by Erin Beaty

Well, I really wanted to like this more than I did. The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and I was expecting a lot but it just didn’t deliver.

Just a small announcement: I’m going on a small hiatus after this post. Next week is spring break, so I’m using that to focus more on my own writing. But I’m also going out of state for vacation, meaning I won’t be on quite often. I’ll try to catch up with reviews when I’m back, but I’m using the next few days and next week actually to catch up on some rereads. 🙂

February Wrap-up & Book Haul!

Per usual I’m a little late posting this but… At least, it’s better than nothing, right? 😅

February was actually a slow month for me. I was doing (am still doing, actually) some heavy editing and revising with my own book, so I didn’t care too much for reading. Audiobooks are seriously a lifesaver, though. I also read a few eARCs this month, so I’ve been slowly checking off books from my semi-made TBR for February. March is looking pretty similar, to be quite honest… 😶

ARC Review: “The Astonishing Color of After” by Emily X.R. Pan

Where do I even begin? I was immediately drawn to this book because of the main character who is biracial (half-white, half-Asian) like myself. Little did I know what a wild and heartfelt journey this book would be.

The great thing is that I won this review copy from a giveaway hosted by TheNovl. I was completely shocked when it came because 1) I never win anything, and 2) little did I think it would be one of my most anticipated releases of 2018!

So here’s mine:

ARC Review: “The Beauty That Remains” by Ashley Woodfolk

Thank you, Random House Children’s, for giving me a free, digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

Truthfully, I didn’t know what to expect going into this novel. Initially, it was the cover that drew me in. Then I read the synopsis, and as I’m currently trying to read more contemporaries, I requested this from NetGalley. This book is about loss and heartbreak, grief and pain, and working through who you are when the people you love the most are gone. I probably would have liked this more 13 years ago, but I’m glad it’s here for those who need it now.
