At its core, Picture U In The Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert is Danny’s story. From the story of his parent’s immigration to the US, to their sacrifices to live the American Dream, secrets, school, friendship, love, we see the quiet evolution of Danny’s life and everything that lead to it. Because Danny’s story is so heartfelt, we made Danny, and specifically his gift of art, the centerpiece of today’s Blog Tour stop. Let’s find out a little more about this must-read book and we’ll show you what we created for Danny.
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.
I am thrilled to be on the book tour today to give you a preview of Beasts Made of Night, a YA Nigerian fantasy that releases on Halloween. The October 31st release date is perfect for a book that features such haunting descriptions of brutal battles with sin-beasts that leave the Aki marked by sin, both physically and emotionally, a dark, injust world run by the wealthy, poverty and income disparity. This is a dark, dark tale with a unique world. Many recommend it for fans of Paolo Bacigalupi and Nnedi Okorafor, but I would also tell fans of slow-burn fantasy, like The Bone Witch and Strange the Dreamer, to pick this one up. Today’s preview will feature bookish aesthetics plus, a giveaway.
