Welcome to day number two of the You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone Blog Tour AND day number two of this book baby being in the world! Thank you to the Fantastic Flying Book Club for putting this amazingly diverse tour together! We are absolutely ecstatic to have author Rachel Lynn Solomon with on the blog today. She was generous enough to take the time to answer questions about her book, her writing process AND give a pep talk for all those writing books in the new year (we even made her decide which characters she likes best!). You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone is a YA contemporary story about teen sisters dealing with their mortality, their relationship, and teen life, in general, the firsts, the good and the bad. Find out more after the jump!
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.
Last month, I gave you a glimpse at Akata Witch along with some fashion inspirations from the first book of this Nigerian fantasy series. Today, I am thrilled to return to this world with a review of the newly released Akata Warrior as part of the BLOG TOUR. If I wasn’t already thrilled to share this book with the world, last week, Nnedi announced there will be a THIRD book in the series, so WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??
