I was just thinking about different ways to talk about my most-recent writing project. Mainly because I finally had a break-through and this world is coming together! Finally, everything is lining up and it’s making me giddy.
I’m calling it Melora, for now (because book titles are hard and no one warned me).
Thank you to the people who tagged me! Savannah from The Book Prophet & Elizabeth from Redgal Musings! Both of these ladies have really awesome blogs and I highly suggest you check out their WIP posts! 😉
Exactly one week from today (Friday, May 24th) is June 1st. AKA the start of Pride Month! I’m sure a lot of you already knew that, but this June is particularly important to me because this is the first year that I’m out as pansexual.
So why not celebrate? This challenge is a fun way to help you get through some of the LGBTQ+ books on your TBR, shout out some favs and also get the chance to win some bookish prizes! Because who doesn’t like free bookish things?
I’m going to go over rules for all the different platforms and the prizes will be at the bottom of the page!
I don’t usually unhaul books. Usually, I tell myself I’ll eventually get to them, or that I like the cover too much to get rid of it (there is Bookstagram to consider…). However, lately, I’ve been in a bit of cleaning kick, especially when it comes to my bookshelves.
I’ve been trying to read all the unread books on my shelves instead of buying more, and while doing that I’ve realized just how many books I’m not planning on opening. So throughout the year, I’ve been slowly collecting books to donate.
And then you guys voted on an unhaul for today’s post and now here we are.
Not the show – I’ve never seen it – I mean two people loving each other platonically and being supportive. It’s one of my essentials to a perfect story!
I was thinking about this the other day and I realized I don’t have any YA friendships to gush about. The only thing close is the Argo II crew from Heroes of Olympus (which is an excellent series but technically middle-grade).
And what irritates me the most is the fact that I haven’t come across any friendships in YA fantasy books! A lot of fantasy – and even contemporary – books have “friendships” and not friendships. What’s the difference? You ask.
Well, allow me to tell you my basic rules for fictional friendships:
I hope you all are having a good day. I decided to do something light and fun (and debatably controversial) today! I found this book tag atWrite Through The Night, and I really enjoyed reading Joce’s post!
Title: A Court of Frost and Starlight (ACOTAR #3.1)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Spoiler Review: To be posted
Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated–scars that will have a far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
