Hi all! I realize you haven’t heard from me that much recently, but I’m trying to keep this blog as active as I can as I go through my second year of college. Thankfully, the people at Penguin Young Readers were able to offer me this amazing opportunity, and I was gifted a surprise package in the form of a diverse and spooky upcoming YA release.
Below, you won’t find my review (not just yet!), but you’ll find something just as amazing. I very loosely based a short horror quiz off this story. While I didn’t want to spoil much with the options, I thought that I took it in a fairly neutral, but fun, direction. I hope y’all enjoy!
With the Karthian borders open for the first time in over three centuries, Odessa made the decision to leave. But while in a faraway country, Odessa and her companions learn of a terrible force that could be the end of the new Karthia. Upon returning, they find that unrest in Karthia is from more than just a change in rulers.
Why this book?: I loved the first book in this series, Reign of the Fallen.
I would like to thank the people at Penguin/Razorbill for sending me a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
I realize I normally don’t do things like this, but I’ve made an exception for Ruin of Stars. If y’all saw my review last week, I freaking loved Ruin of Stars, and it’s honestly one of the best sequels I have ever read. So, here’s my most recent push to get y’all to read this book (or at least read the first one. Please?)
Today, I’m ecstatic to tell you all that I’m hosting an excerpt of the newly released, second installment to C.B. Lee’s Sidekick Squad series, Not Your Villain! I loved the first, Not Your Sidekick, of which I just reviewed here, and highly recommend the series. Not Your Villain features a transgender MC, Bells, who was introduced in the first. I loved Bells in the first, so I’m excited to read the continuation of the series from his point of view!
