Blog Tour // Geekerella by Ashley Poston

I’m excited to be participating in the Geekerella blog tour! I adored this book so much and I will be pushing it hard on readers for the foreseeable future. Today, author Ashley Poston is sharing with us her Favorite Fandom OTPs! But first, here’s more about the book AND the book trailer: Guest Post I have breathed fandom for so long I basically ship trashcans now. (I kid, I kid!) But […]

Filled with Drama & Characters You Love to Hate \\ Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf

My Thoughts: After the massively massive cliffhanger at the end of the first book, Love Me Never, my body was ready for Forget Me Always. I did decide to read this one instead of taking the audio route, simply because there was just no way I could torture myself like that again. And while I really liked this installment in the series, it fell flat for me and not as… […]

High Stakes Fantasy Full of Magic & Intrigue // The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

My Thoughts: If you visit Lilybloombooks often, you’d know that Sarah Fine is my favorite author. I love her writing, the world’s that she creates, and of course all her character’s as well. And I was beyond excited to continue the series and immerse myself back into this fascinating world. Honestly, I was nervous when I found out that this isn’t a sequel to Elli’s story, but rather a companion story […]

Sunday Street Team // Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Welcome to my first Sunday Street Team post! I was beyond excited to participate in the tour for Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh. Check out my review of the book! My Thoughts: As a self proclaimed cover snob, I have no qualms admitting that this cover caught my eye. It promises a chilling, eerie read and guess what? The pages within delivered! I love a good small town […]

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

My Thoughts: Having not read Jennifer’s debut novel, which I plan to remedy soon by the way, I had no idea what to expect heading into Holding Up the Universe. Which in part, I feel is a small blessing. Sometimes, an author’s work just needs to be experienced for the first time without bias of their previous novels, and I feel Holding up the Universe was that book for me. Holding Up […]

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

My Thoughts: I’ve been in a rut when it comes to Fantasy novels lately – simply because I just haven’t been reading many these days. I had pretty high expectations heading into A Shadow Bright and Burning, and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint. A mix of magical fantasy, political intrigue and monsters in Victorian London, this book had a lot going for it. There’s an interesting magic caste; with Witches, Sorcerers and […]

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

My Thoughts: There are some books that leave you breathless. Their words leave their mark on you and you are left with no adequate words to describe it, and how it made you feel. Girl in Pieces, is one of those books… it’s just so honest, raw and emotionally draining but beautiful, too. If I could reach in this story and hug all the characters, I would. But I would hold onto Charlie […]

The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke

My Thoughts: When you love a particular genre, you tend to read more of it, yes? And the more you read of said genre, the most subtle clues you pick up on, and just see coming. I think many readers can attest to that. So, when you see the outcome of a situation so clearly so early in the book, it can leave you either disappointed, or it won’t bother you […]

A Bittersweet Ending to a Beloved Series // The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

My Thoughts: There’s always that moment when you finish a beloved series where you go through a tidal wave of emotion. Sadness. Heartbreak. Glee. Sadness, again. (I also believe the 5 stages of grief may also apply.) Whatever emotions one does feel, it’s always sad to see a series end. (They are also the hardest to review, but alas.) What I loved most about The Beauty of Darkness is how […]
