BOOKISH (AND NOT SO BOOKISH) THOUGHTS | 003

Hello, avid readers!

What’s up, what’s down, what’s left and right? LOOOL it’s been a while since I last talked to you guys! I was just sooo busy processing documents and everything for my board exam’s requirements! But today, I’m so lucky to have a half-day of just writing blog posts to queue up.

Anyway, welcome to my Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts version 3.0!

Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts is a weekly book meme tag created by Christine @ Bookishly BoisterousBookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts is a chance for book bloggers to dabble in areas besides books (but those are welcome too). Share your plans for the weekend, a rant on people not using their turn signals in parking lots, or your love of Sunday morning mimosas.

Sooo this week, I think I’ll just include more photos here from the ~Pinterest~ because I wanna try if a picture can really tell a thousand words? 😀

COVER REVEAL: Frostbite by Cambria Hebert | Xpresso Book Tours

About the Book:

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

What if we lose everything?
It was a question that had haunted me even after I spoke it aloud.
Turns out one loss—one profound loss—is enough to put everything else at stake.
What a house of cards life can be. How easily everything ices over.
We’ve survived an avalanche, made it through a blizzard, but now a chill has set in. A cold so deep it reaches beyond bone.
The end of the storm provided a new beginning, but we can’t start over while we’re still frozen in the past.
How can I face a man who’s lost so much because of me? How can he face me?
This powerful secret between us grows with every breath I take. Will it pull us closer or sever a bond I once thought unbreakable?
The threat to my life is gone. Yet I’m still terrified.
Cold has laid claim to Liam. Whenever we touch, the bite of frost nips at my heart.
His obsession for revenge grows, hurling him further from me and closer to the frostbite taking over.

COVER REVEAL: Mewranters: Attack of the Sea Monster by Kachi Ugo | Xpresso Book Tours

About the Book:

If there are no sea monsters ravaging the seven seas, or three-headed hydras prowling our streets, it’s not because they don’t exist; it’s because we exist.
We are the last line of defense against nature’s indiscretions.
We are nature’s police.
We are Mewranters.

When Perry Johnson hits twelve, he finds out he’s a Mew—an almost extinct species of people who possess the ability to change shape into three different forms: an aerial form, a terrestrial form, and an aquatic form.

On the day of his initiation, he shifts into a huge Golden Eagle. But this is a bad thing since no eagle Mew makes it past the age of twelve. To complicate his life, his shifting into an eagle Mew has reawakened the sea monster. A tentative partnership is formed between the different clans. But when Perry Johnson realizes that this partnership could mean the death of his parents, he has a decision to make.

With every Mew in the country out to kill him, and the sea monster calling him out to the sea, Perry must quickly learn why every Mew is threatened by the existence of an eagle Mew if he is to stand a chance at saving his parents and killing the monster. If he fails, it may very well be the end of his family…and the rest of the world.

COVER REVEAL + GIVEAWAY: The Witch’s Tower by Tamara Grantham | Xpresso Book Tours

About the Book:

Gothel is a witch. Punished for the actions of her mother, her choice is simple: either she stands guard over Princess Rapunzel—or she dies. But just because a choice is easy doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. Protecting Rapunzel means watching as the princess lays trapped in a tower, bedridden by hair that is so long and heavy it’s slowly driving her insane. Gothel’s life has become one of imprisonment and solitude as well—until a prince and his handsome squire appear at the tower.

Only one object can cut Rapunzel’s hair and end the curse: a pair of magical shears. But the shears are guarded by the most terrifying witches in the land, who also happen to be Gothel’s aunts. As Gothel and the prince’s squire, Raj Talmund, work to form a plan, she finds herself more and more drawn to the mysterious young man from the Outerlands. Unfortunately, his destiny is far more dangerous than she wants to admit: to save a princess, he must kill the witch who’s been forced to guard her.

THE WITCH’S TOWER is the first in an inspired new series of fairy-tale retellings from award-winning fantasy author Tamara Grantham.
