Blog tour: Pulse by Danielle Koste – Excerpt

HeaderTitle: Pulse

Author: Danielle Koste

Genre: Sci-fi, Paranormal, Romance

Preorders: November 30th 2017

Release Date: January 1st 201

Synopsis: Rowan Platts is addicted to success

When she’s presented with the chance to work on a top secret project fronted by her idol, renowned virologist Dr. Margot Miller, Rowan signs her life away without second thought. The realization she’s gotten in over her head comes only after the subject of their study is revealed: a boy with a bad attitude and an uninhibited taste for human blood.

He’s a medical anomaly. Having the ability to crush metal with his bare hands and hear a heartbeat from across the room, it would make Rowan’s career if she was the one to discover what made him so unusual.

Easier said than done, with a subject who prefers snapping necks over answering questions.

6 Things Diverse Books added to my Life

Diverse books

Hello guys !

I wanted to save this post for my second blog anniversary in two months which then roughly coincides with my one year anniversary of reading mostly diverse books (around 80-90% of my reading is diverse in one way or another) but then realized I’m gonna be on Hiatus at that time (exams, pray for me) and since next month will be dedicated to all the end of the year posts (I’M SO EXCITED!!!) then this seemed like the right time to just gush about all the things diverse books have added to my life, which are… a lot.

Mapping the Interior

Publisher : Tor Books

Genre : Adult |  Horror

Page Count: 56

Synopsis : Walking through his own house at night, a fifteen-year-old thinks he sees another person stepping through a doorway. Instead of the people who could be there, his mother or his brother, the figure reminds him of his long-gone father, who died mysteriously before his family left the reservation. When he follows it he discovers his house is bigger and deeper than he knew.
The house is the kind of wrong place where you can lose yourself and find things you’d rather not have. Over the course of a few nights, the boy tries to map out his house in an effort that puts his little brother in the worst danger, and puts him in the position to save them . . . at terrible cost.

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with Native/Indigenous Main Characters

Native indigenous MCs

Hello guys !

I’m back again with a recommendations post that I quite frankly have been procrastinating for a couple weeks, like everything blogging lately to be honest, I’m just having a hard time doing anything blog related these days because of stress and whatnot but THAT’S NOT THE POINT. The point here is I’m back with a new recommendations post, I had planned a completely different topic for this month but as it was brought to my attention that November is Native American Heritage month, I thought it would be more fitting to come up with a list of books by Native / Indigenous authors and boost those to the best of my capability.

I got most of these books through Weezie @ Weezie’s Whimsical books and the recommendations they bless us with on Twitter so I’d recommend checking their blog out and giving them a follow because they do a lot for the community.

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles

#DiverseBookbloggersDiscuss: On why I made a Trigger Warnings Database

Laura.png

Hi everyone!

A few months ago I got the idea of making a trigger warnings master list. I was so fed up with having to look through Goodreads for half an hour in the hope that someone maybe included trigger warnings in their review, or searching through an author’s website hoping they included them there, before I could start a book. Having everything in one place, and having the community contribute to it, seemed like a good idea. Especially because I know quite a few of my friends struggle with the same problem.

Series : Cyclone #2

Publication date : October 25th, 2016goodreads

Publisher : Courtney Milan

Genre : New Adult |  Romance

Page Count: 303

Synopsis : Jay na Thalang is a demanding, driven genius. He doesn’t know how to stop or even slow down. The instant he lays eyes on Maria Lopez, he knows that she is a sexy distraction he can’t afford. He’s done his best to keep her at arm’s length, and he’s succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.
Maria has always been cautious. Now that her once-tiny, apocalypse-centered blog is hitting the mainstream, she’s even more careful about preserving her online anonymity. She hasn’t sent so much as a picture to the commenter she’s interacted with for eighteen months—not even after emails, hour-long chats, and a friendship that is slowly turning into more. Maybe one day, they’ll meet and see what happens.

A peak into my brain: How I review the books I read.

How I review.png

Hello guys !

A while ago, I got a few comments on one of my posts asking how I review my books because I mentioned that I take a lot of notes and as much as I could direct them to this post, I wrote it almost two years ago and the way I approach books has changed drastically. So that post doesn’t stand anymore and quite frankly, going back and reading it, I thought “WHO IS THAT?” not because it was necessarily bad but because it’s not me anymore and I can almost read a certain naivety to the post.

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.

So without further ago let’s dive directly into the post. Continue reading
