The Influence of Landscapes on Danielle K. Roux’s Writing | Blog Tour Guest Post

I am absolutely ecstatic to a be part of the tour for Danielle K. Roux’s August Prather is Not Dead Yet! I’m sure my followers know by now that any story with a lot of queer characters is a story I can’t resist. I have Danielle here on the blog today to talk a bit about how landscapes have influenced her writing – a topic I find so incredibly fascinating – and, of course, I’ve got info about the book to share as well. There’s also an awesome giveaway to enter. Lots of fun stuff, I know – so let’s get into it!

Breaking Bailey by Anonymous | Yes, That Title IS a Nod to Breaking Bad (I Think)

When I was in middle school/high school, I read Go Ask Alice and Lucy in the Sky which are two books in this “series” (it’s not really a series but I’m not sure what would be a better term… companion novels maybe?) and found them captivating.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff | In Which I’m Really Angry I’m Just Now Reading This

Ummmm, who the hell let me go this long without reading Nevernight? And WHY?

When Nevernight first came out, I had every intention on reading it. Because who doesn’t love stories about aspiring assassins, right? But for some reason, I didn’t get to it right away and as time went on, I kind of lost interest in it and forgot about it. The guy I’ve been seeing bought it for me and practically begged me to read it and if there is anyone among the book blogging community who could resist that kind of adorable shit, hats off to you because you are stronger than me. It all worked out though because this was honestly AMAZING and I’m so, so, so happy I finally read it. I need book 2, like, now.

Anyway, let me get into my actual review, yes?

Potential April Reads

Potential April Reads

Hi everyone! Hope we’re all doing fabulously on this Friday. I thought I’d pop in and talk about some of the books I might be picking up this month once I finish my current read. I’m not calling this a TBR because I don’t want to feel obligated to read any of these or feel as though I can’t (or perhaps more accurately, shouldn’t) read something not included here. So potential reads it is.
