FR·Call Down the Hawk

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover

It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

Friday Reads

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

My Current read

48449340. sy475

This book is so delightfully weird! It has dreams and dreamers, an undreground blackmarket full of strange things and people, three brothers, and six girls who are actually just one split up.

I’m enjoying this even more than the original The Raven Cycle books (probably because Ronan’s always been my fave)

Book Beginnings

This is going to be a story about the Lynch borthers.

My favorite kind of story (and of brothers)

The Friday 56

“I don’t believe you,” he said out loud. “I have trust issues.”

Why is this so funny? Ronan doesn’t have an issue talking about his issues and I love him

Navigating books awards season

We are quickly approaching the end of the year and you know what that means:

it’s time to choose the best of 2019, or at least start thinking about it

I probably won’t start drafting that particular post in a few weeks yet, but when you have a big platform and want to get your audience involved with the process you need to get the votes in early.

Changes In My Reading Life

(Maybe you like different genres or topics, maybe you read faster than you used to, maybe you only like standalones now)

Everything changes, and our reading habits are not the exception, I’m still in love with high fantasy and YA contemporary romances but over time, especially this year, I’ve been reading further from my comfort zone and finding out new favorites.

NaNoWriMo 101-Pep talks and selfcare

Can you believe we are already past the halfway point? I can’t. Usually, this is the part where stories get more complex and the plot holes stare into your soul, where all the hype of beginning your novel is gone and you have the (in my opinion harder) task of not giving up.

For this purpose is that today we’ll talk about pep talks offered on the NaNo website and self care for writers. 

With special guest JK Rowling (before she became the disappointment she is today)

Shots on Goal-Cover and a teaser!

Me? Reading another romance book about hockey players?? You know it

This one comes out next year but the author was kind enough to send me an ARC! And a teaser to share with all of you!

Summary

47968323. sy475

Recently traded to the newly formed Vermont Trailblazers, professional hockey player Roman Kinsey needs to focus on helping the team win games and filling the stands, not on the blond, bespectacled part-timer who works at the library he volunteers at. He knows all too well that outing himself equals heartache and ridicule…or worse.

Cody Evans, psych major and grad school hopeful, notices everything and thinks too much. But he doesn’t know what to think when he sees Roman reading to kids. The rugged hockey player just doesn’t look like the type. But it stirs something in him, something he’s never felt before.

When the library is threatened with closure, Cody enlists Roman’s help. As they get to know each other better…much, much better…they realize that they have more in common than books. But Roman’s keeping a big part of himself from his team, and giving in to his feelings for Cody might be more than he’s willing to risk.

Expected publication: January 7th 2020 by Amy Aislin

WoW·Wayward Witch

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

Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too


I have seen heaven and it’s the Brooklyn Brujas matching covers! The WW cover was revealed this past week and IT’S SO PRETTY

That’s why it gets a WoW feature even though the release date it so far away

Rose Mortiz has always been a fixer, but lately she’s been feeling lost. She has brand-new powers she doesn’t understand, and her family is still trying to figure out how to function in the wake of her amnesiac father’s return home. Then, on the night of her Deathday party, Rose discovers her father’s memory loss has been a lie.
 
As she rushes to his side, the two are ambushed and pulled through a portal to the land of Adas, a fairy realm hidden in the Caribbean Sea. There, Rose is forced to work with a group of others to save Adas. Soon, she begins to discover the scope of her powers, the troubling truth about her father’s past, and the sacrifices he made to save her sisters.

But if Rose wants to return home so she can repair her broken family, she must figure out how to heal Adas first.

BBHop-That’s a classic

About the Book Blogger Hop by Coffee Adicted Writer

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:.

Do you read classics? If so, what is your favorite?

Very rearely, I don’t know why but the mood for classic literature is rare

My favorite, and one I’ve talked about a lot in this blog is The Symposium by Plato. Even if you are not much opf a fan of greek philosophy you can enjoy this book.-


This week I hopped to:

Did you know that we are in NaNoWriMo? If you are like me and trudging through putting down words every day then I recommend check out NovelKnight’s tips for surviving NaNo, from one writer to another

Hannah has a really interesting discussion post about how we show immaturity on YA, or how we avoid it. She has some great points and some of my favorite writers are quoted.

Jenny has a post on what she wishes non-bloggers knew, based in comment she’s gotten that go from annoying to straight up rude. The post also demystifies some beliefs people have about blogging as a career.
