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.

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!

First Reads Friday Presents: Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

It’s been almost three weeks since I finished this book and I’m still not over it.  The micro-aggression. The outright aggression. The abuse. The feeling of helplessness.  The isolation. The small ways abusive and possessive relationships grow into something so big and all-encompassing that the world seems to come crashing down on you. Heather Demetrios has created a masterful study of teen abusive relationships that we’ll talking about for a long, long time.
