Dear Rachel Maddow Blog Tour

It is Pride Month and the Supreme Court ruled earlier this week that a bakery that didn’t want to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple should have been given further due process under state law rather than just ruling that discriminating against gay couples is against the Constitution. A senator was subsequently kicked out of a refugee facility, but not before his staff noticed that children forcibly separated from their parents were being kept in cages. The Secretary of Education has quietly removed 72 protections for disabled children in public schools. Everywhere you look these days, there is a new reason for outrage and we must all develop coping mechanisms or we will most certainly go mad. That’s where Dear Rachel Maddow comes into play.

Many of us are suffering the psychological and legislative trauma of this administration. I fear that some of us may not make it out and constantly have anxiety that we won’t show up to the polls in November. Taking action may not be the only step to take–sometimes you need an outlet, a motivation to kick your butt in gear. This book may just be what times who feel hopeless are looking for. I am going to write you a letter and tell you why.

First Reads Friday: Undead Girl Gang Blog Tour

Today is First Reads Friday, which means we give you the rundown on an upcoming book.  Usually, the rundown is in the form of a review, but this week is going to be a little different.  We’re going to feature some creative content for an upcoming book, namely, Lily Anderson’s forthcoming Undead Girl Gang.

This isn’t Lily Anderson‘s first time on the blog, but that’s because we love her words and wit and her books in general. To top it off, Undead Girl Gang was one of my most anticipated books of the year, so I immediately agreed to host a date on this blog tour without ever having read the book.  As I was seeking inspiration for this post and reading the book, I realized that this was going to be one of my favorite books of the year.  From witchy vigilante justice, to dedicated and positive girl friendships to back-handed comments about racism in a small town, a strong focus on Wicca, body positivity and being yourself, I can’t pinpoint one thing I loved above all else in this book, it was a perfect potion! I am thrilled to tell you a little bit more about this book and then match up characters to their corresponding enamel pins.

The Smoke Thieves Blog Tour: Interview with Sally Green

Sally Green created and broke out hearts with the Half Bad trilogy a few years ago and she is BACK this spring in a MAJOR way this spring (correction: NEXT WEEK!!) with her full-fledged fantasy (that includes a map), The Smoke Thieves!  The Smoke Thieves can be compared to YA Game of Thrones (with demons!) and features the converging story of multiple characters.  Both her world-building and characterization of Nathan and Gabriel were what made the Half Bad story so compelling, so we are THRILLED to have Sally on the blog today giving us a little bit of insight into her new series and characters.

Lost Crow Conspiracy Blog Tour + Fashion Set

This last Tuesday, the second and final book in the Blood Rose Rebellion duology was released–Lost Crow Conspiracy! I have had some mail issues, so while I haven’t read the book, I can get you hyped up for Lost Crow Conspiracy from my Blood Rose Rebellion reading.

Anna can’t perform the simplest magical task. In fact, she’s so magically incompetent that she seems to break every magical spell around her.  Her family, not pleased by her ruining her sister’s magical coming out, and is exiled to visit her ‘other’ family in Hungary. While in Hungary, Anna discovers that neither her family, her world, nor her magic are what they seem to appear to be. She keeps breaking spells and has discovered that the rebellion isn’t just talk, but actual events going on all around her. She also discovers a secret about herself. Without spoiling too much, Anna may or may not be THE ONE and this lays the groundwork for Lost Crow Conspiracy.

I am thrilled to be a part of the blog tour and have prepared a fashion set for you to admire after you learn a little more about the book and Rosalyn!
