Prepping for YALLWEST!!!

So I’ve been to LeakyCon, but I’ve never been to a full book conference before, and prepping for this thing was WAY more work than I ever anticipated. I am super lucky that my wise friends Christy and Nancy from Tales of the Ravenous Reader and Kelly from Bookcrushin have been kind enough to guide…

Waiting on Wednesday: Warcross by Marie Lu

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is yet another book that I am not only dying to get my hands on, but also crossing all my fingers that I might be able to snag an ARC copy of at YALLWEST this weekend! Marie Lu’s Warcross will be out in September, and it sounds AWESOME. A high-tech,…

What Makes a Female Character “Strong”

I see the word “strong” applied to female characters frequently, and in most cases, I agree completely. The thing I think we need to be careful of as book reviewers and bloggers is that that there are many different ways in which a character or person can be strong. Typically, when I see that term being…

Standalone Sunday: Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index

Julie Israel brings us her debut novel Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index. Those who’ve experienced grief know all too well the difficulty of moving forward. This book sounds like it’s filled with mystery, love, and hope. Will Juniper discover that making connections with others is the only way of holding on to the ones you’ve lost? I can’t…

Embrace Your Inner-Geek with Ashley Poston’s Geekerella

So this was a book that I had casually placed on my TBR list, because it sounded really fun and cute, but it was my friend’s reviews of this book that convinced me that I HAD to pick it up. For me this is easily a five-star read, but don’t take my word for it….

Waiting on Wednesday: Wonder Woman Warbringer

Standalone Sunday: Anatomy of a Misfit

What would you do if the nerdy guy you’d never dare get to know comes back from summer break looking hotter than ever? Would you try to find out what his secrets are, while making sure yours aren’t revealed? From someone who grew up keeping a low profile in high school, I found this book’s…

Debut Author of the Week: Cale Dietrich

This book sounds like so much fun! Who doesn’t like a good spy novel?! It remind me of a combination of the movies, This Means War and The Kingsman. Most of us who love James Bond or Mission Impossible agree that a good “Love Interest” is sure to spice up the story. The catch in this plot though, is that whoever isn’t the…
