Summary:

Three friends. Two love stories. One convention.

Charlie likes to stand out. She’s a vlogger and actress promoting her first movie at SupaCon, and this is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star Reese Ryan. When internet-famous cool-girl actress Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.

Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with her best guy friend Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about a fan contest for her favorite fandom, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.

Queens of Geek, an empowering young adult novel by Jen Wilde, is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.

Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 3-14-17

Yay, Top Ten Tuesday is back! It went on a bit of a hiatus and while I completely understand why, I still missed it. Even when I don’t participate, I love reading TTT posts.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme/prompt for which you come up with a list of 10 books. This week’s theme is top ten books on your spring TBR. I wasn’t sure whether or not I should stick to spring releases or just include any book I’m hoping to read this spring. I decided to go with the latter since I’ve already talked about most of the spring releases I’m excited for and knowing me, I won’t actually get to any of them soon. So I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about some books you can expect to see me talking about (and hopefully reviewing) within the next few months. I’m also going to try to avoid talking about books that I already mentioned in my March TBR post so I don’t get too redundant.

Who Am I Tag

Who Am I tag

I doubt any of you really pay attention to my blogging schedule BUT I usually post tags on Saturday. I completely spaced out this week though and didn’t realize until halfway through Saturday that I never scheduled & posted my weekly tag. Oops. So I decided to post it today since I usually post reviews on Mondays, but didn’t have one ready.

Anyway, Puput @ Sparkling Letters tagged me to do this back in the beginning of February. As usual, it’s taken me a little while to get to it. 😛 Thanks again for tagging me, Puput!

February Book Haul

February Book Haul header

This is a bit late, I know. But better late than never. You know I can’t pass up the chance to talk about the ridiculous amount of books I get each month. 😉 In terms of physical books, I did a LOT better than I usually do, but my ebook haul was just as absurd as always. Anyway, let’s see what books I’ve acquired in February, shall we?

ARC Review: Proof of Lies by Diana Rodriguez Wallach (+ Giveaway!)

wallach proof of lies Book Review blog header

Published: March 7th, 2017 by Entangled Teen | Series: Anastasia Phoenix #1 | Length: 400 pages | Genre: YA, mystery, contemporary | Source: I received an eARC from YA Reads and Entangled Teen via NetGalley as part of the blog tour. | Possible Triggers: Violence, some comments re: sexual harassment/assault (not detailed)

Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

Summary from Goodreads:

Some secrets are best kept hidden…

Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages.

And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead.

She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true.

Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility.

She will find her sister.
