I’m not going to make this a long introduction because I have already done it once and you should check out that post anyway because I’m really proud of it–inspired by the adorable cover, I matched up the five main characters with their matching enamel pins. After the jump, I review Undead Girl Gang for you and give you all the reasons you should check this book out when it releases May 8th!
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.
My ears perked up a while back when I heard that Gayle Forman had a new book releasing this year. I have picked up all her books over the years and enjoyed them and so I’m ECSTATIC to be on the book tour for her upcoming novel!
It’s February 13th, which means it’s officially Galentine’s Day! While we celebrate our lady friendships every day here on the blog, it’s nice to have a reason to get together and toast all the women who influence us and make our lives better. Rookie uplifts teen voices through calls for submitals to their independent online magazine. We are thrilled to collaborate with them today on the blog tour for Rookie On Love.
Of course, the theme of ROOKIE ON LOVE is LOVE. So lets uplift contributor voices and the theme of love today! I’ve created a playlist inspired by this anthology that surrounds the heart’s most intense emotion: LOVE. Let’s find out a little more about Rookie On Love, editor Tavi Gevenson and our playlist selections after the jump.
With just four days until The Speaker hits shelves, I’ve got a sneak peek at my favorite quotes from the book!
