Storm and Fury is a YA Paranormal fantasy that includes a unique plot, flawed characters, and steamy scenes. I haven’t read any of Armentrout’s works before, and I was pleasantly surprised by this! With its fast pacing and action packed scenes, I was absolutely mesmerized in the world of gargoyles, demons, wardens – and mythical creatures. It truly saddens me that this book has come to end. I could go on reading the banter between Trinity x Zayne forever.

If you don’t know who Evelyn Skye is, where have you been? she is the author of The Crown’s Game series, and the Circle of Shadows series. Not only does she create creative, and immersive fantasy worlds, but her works are also diverse with Asian rep, as well as Russian and Japanese elements.
As part of Evelyn Skye’s cover reveal team, it is my pleasure to share Cloak of Night, her newest release, and sequel to Circle of Shadows! You might be expecting something spooky or dark (which I don’t blame you), but it’s also very red, bright, and mystical.
I am in awe of the graphic designer’s skills (maybe a bit jealous too). 😍
As the days become longer, and school begins to end, you know that summer is finally here. So, I couldn’t help but do this fun book tag created by Tiffany at Read By Tiffany. Today was my last day for final exams, so I can’t wait to start my TBR (to be read pile)! Without further a due, here’s some recommendations for a sweet adventure this summer. ☀️
I never thought I would say this, but I’m exhausted after BookCon. The day prior to the event, I spent looking through all the exhibitors’ schedules, creating my own spreadsheets, reading blog posts on BookCon, scrolling through Twitter for ARC drops – basically everything to get me ready for the big day. Even then, I was a nervous wreck. It took a bit to adjust to where all the booths, panels, and signings were (which was much later in the day, after most ARC/ticket drops).
In order to prevent you from going through that same ordeal, here’s a few tips on how to survive the event, and come out with a great haul of books.
Today, we’re crunching down the numbers, and discovering all the secrets behind the algorithm*. Well, even if we don’t become influencers overnight; hopefully, this post will provide some insight into Bookstagram. Plus, you can have fun looking at all the numbers and pictures. If you don’t have an Instagram account, you should totally join the book community, and all the bookish fun (giveaways, author meet-ups, etc.)!
*(for those of you who are foreign to the world of instagram, the algorithm is a way to choose photos or videos that comes up on one’s feed)
Nexusis a YA sci-fi fantasy novel, and sequel in the Androma Saga. I absolutely loved reading Zenith, and I couldn’t wait to continue the series! The story starts off with Androma Racella, from being the powerful Bloody Baroness to runaway fugitive. With her utmost loyalty to her crew, she will stop at nothing to bring them back—even if it means destroying the galaxy of Mirabel. On top of this whirlwind adventure, Queen Nor has erased free will, subjugating all minds under compulsion. Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings has crafted a stunning space opera that will leave you breathless.
For several weeks, I’ve watched high school seniors receive their college decisions. While I’m not a senior, it’s just as nerve-racking for me, when such a brilliant or hardworking student isn’t accepted while someone less deserving is. Of course, you might say that I don’t know everything about the student’s high school career, but to me the college admissions process seems a bit random. Anyways, besides keeping up grades, studying, volunteering, etc., I also want to delve into my passions, and hobbies. This is the tricky part – how do I balance school, blogging, reading, and everything else I love to do?
Besides all that contemplating, this month, I was able to finish a (long-time) photography project, take the PSAT, participate in the Multicultural show, attend a conference (related to empowering women), and promote a spring campaign (#swiperightonreading). (Hopefully, I’m not leaving anything exciting out). Some things I also consider as accomplishments would be completing practice exams at school (the real ones are approaching soon like Regents, AP, and Finals).
