I Spy a Book Challenge

Whaaaat? I’m NOT doing a tag for once?

I know, I was surprised too

This great challenge comes from Confessions of a YA Reader. It’s a wonderful blog and you should all go check it out!

The challenge was created by Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books!

 How to do this tag:

Find a book that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each category. You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!

I can do nothing within five minutes, I get distracted soooo easily, but I’ll try to make it in under an hour

I’m opening my goodreads TBR list and choosing from there, if I can’t find anything then I’ll go to my read books. Each cover will have a link to the book’s page Continue reading “I Spy a Book Challenge”

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

“Who are you?” If I could tell her, I would. But that answer was beyond me, so I gave the only one that felt right. “I’m a dead girl walking.”

Title: The Star-Touched Queen

Series: The Star-Touched Queen #1

Author: Roshani Chokshi

Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin

Format: E-Book

Length: 342 pages

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

25203675

Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?
Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…
But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.

Sneak Peak•What if it’s us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli

We got a sneak peek!!!

The amazingness that is this writing duo has released a teaser with the cover and the first two chapters of What if it’s Us?

And guys…

Without spoilers?

This is the cutest shit I’ve ever read. I can just feel the affinity of these two characters, the world of possibilities they present…

The chapters are divided on each main’s POV with Becky writing Ben’s and Adam writing Alejo. Even if the article didn’t say it you can just tell at first sight.

Ben is very much a BA character, he comes from a caring family, has friends (though not many) and is upper-middle class. He is sweet and caring and has an optimistic way of seeing the world.

Alejo is peak AS, he is a latino with a less than perfect life and real problems that make him retract into himself. He is open but realistic about the world (if a bit pessimistic, but since he’s just gone through a breakup I don’t know if that’s a defining trait), he loves his friends.

Both Becky and Adam’s styles are beautiful but quite different, I’m excited to see how these two manage to form a relationship and make it work.

I just hope the ending was left in the hands of Becky. While I love Adam and his books, I’d prefer this one was not a tragedy

So, yeah, this is going to kill me.

I want some gay ID card to whip out like a cop badge. Or I could demonstrate in other ways. God. I would happily demonstrate.

Spring Bingo Wrap Up

So, this spring/actually fall season I decided to join the Bookish Spring Bingo made  by Becca from Pretty Deadly Reviews. I made a tbr and everything but my plans are to never be followed so I ended up changing a few books in there.

Although this last month and a half I’ve been stuck in an extremely annoying slump I did manage to read some books.

Here you have the progress I made during these three months:

WoW·Blanca & Roja

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Usually I’d wait until a book is published to see the reviews and decide whether I want to read them or not but there are some that I can’t help but be hyped for.

Today’s pick is from and author I have immense respect for since I read When the moon was ours. It comes out on October 9th 2018

Wayward Children by Seanan McGuire·2·Down Among the Sticks and Bones

Since this series is composed of novellas I thought I’d do something different and make one post for three mini-reviews.

“Some adventures require nothing more than a willing heart and the ability to trip over the cracks in the world.”
― Seanan McGuireDown Among the Sticks and Bones

The series was darker than I imagined since all I’d read about it was Home for children who went to magical worlds and then had to came back, but all of them want to return. Turns out there are murders and stuff.

The three books are completely different from each other, I’ll get into more detail for each one but the thing is that they explore different characters and experiences. They can be classified in: The going home, the coming back, and the return.
