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.

White Rabbit Blog Tour

Imagine combining the slasher qualities of 90’s movies like Scream seamlessly with the warm haziness of unrequited love from an 80’s John Hughes flick and a road trip so surreal it would give Hunter S. Thompson a run for his money.  This is the magic of White Rabbit. Caleb Roehrig’s second YA book is another foray into mystery, but that’s where the comparisons ends with this sophomore book. Mischievous, sarcastic and a totally wild ride, find out all the reasons you should be picking up White Rabbit when it releases next month.

First Reads Friday: An Interview with Amy Trueblood + Giveaway

The month of March is a HUGE month for YA releases and one I’m particularly excited about is Amy Trueblood’s NOTHING BUT SKY.  This historical fiction contains doesn’t come out until the end of the month, but we have a preview and interview to get you primed for release!  There are so many elements to this novel I’m excited about: from a daredevil girl who works against the social mores of the historical time period (WWI!), a boy who challenges her every step of the way and that she maybe wants to kiss and heart-stopping action. Find out more about NOTHING BUT SKY, the author, Amy Trueblood, and what inspired this story of perseverance, daredevil stunts and one final chance to prove yourself the world and to your harshest critic–yourself.
