Cover Reveal+Giveaway: "What the Flower Says of Death" by Danielle Koste

What The Flower Says of Death

by Danielle Koste

Violet Holt has already met Death once. 

After a failed suicide attempt, she finds herself dumped by her callous mother on the doorstep of her family’s desolate oceanside estate. With only the company of her estranged grandmother, comatose grandfather, and the monsters in her head, at least there was no one to interfere with her plans to try again on her eighteenth birthday.

No one, except maybe Jack: a skeleton of a boy who says he’s there to rake her grandmother’s leaves, yet seems more experienced at stalking than grounds-keeping. She knows he’s keeping a secret behind his gentle smiles and aloofness, but it’s difficult for Violet to be put off by his untimely thin-air appearances when figuring out the mystery of his true identity makes for such a good distraction. 

Violet’s trauma is deeper than the wound on her wrist though, and it cannot be simply whisked away in a whirlwind of guessing games and pleasant gestures. She struggles to reconnect with her grandmother, find forgiveness for her mother, and closure with her grandfather’s dire condition, all while battling the strain of it all on her family. Even with a flicker of something hopeful blossoming within herself, Violet knows her birthday plans must be inevitable. 

Death wouldn’t be there for her if it wasn’t.

Title: Everything Under the Sun

Genre: Dystopian

About Everything Under the Sun:

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about. Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana. Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

I received an e-copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Humanity, faith, morals and slow burn romance rule in this amazing dystopian story by Jessica Redmerski. I loved her previous works but this one is truly a gem. Thais and Atticus have not only to deal with the mistrust and the cruelty of the world around them but also with their own selves and how much does it take to still keep being human.

Thais is naive and Atticus was forced to become a stone-cold killer who still grieves over the lost world. Their journey is one of growth and slow building romance and I liked the way they traveled and everyone they met. This one deserves more love!

Review: "LIFEL1K3" (Lifelike #1) by Jay Kristoff

Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

On a floating junkyard beneath a radiation sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.

Eve isn’t looking for secrets—she’s too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she’s just spent six months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her Grandpa from the grave was the fistful of credits she just lost to the bookies. To top it off, she’s discovered she can destroy electronics with the power of her mind, and the puritanical Brotherhood are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.

But when Eve discovers the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic conscience, Cricket, in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, infiltrate towering megacities and scour the graveyard of humanity’s greatest folly to save the ones Eve loves, and learn the dark secrets of her past.

Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.



When you know that the author is a mastermind of twisting your emotions and create amazing worlds in his books, you come back for more like a chocolate addict.

That's what happened with LIFEL1K3. I knew that this book was going to have some serious revelations, but I didn't expect the ending!

But let's go back; Eve lives with her Grandpa who is sick her best friend is named Lemon Fresh and she has an amazing cyborg dog which despite being like a metal skeleton with fur, he is an absolute cinnamon roll. There's also Kricket the little robot who also is hilarious as hell.

And when Eve loses control on a huge robot fight and accidentally fries every circuit, strange enemies will appear, a boy named Ezekiel will arrive and try to help her and from there my dear friends comes the pitch with which Jay Kristoff gained the publication of the book. Because seriously, this action-packed adventure, through bio-engineered whales, Mad-Max-Fury wild desert storms and cities balanced on old ruins is not going to be forgotten soon.

And honestly if not a saga of movies I demand at least an anime or a graphic novel!

The world-building, the robots, the Lifelike's the fighting, the PREACHER! Even his murderous bot-dogs were amazing!

And the ending? Or maybe the final chapters that led to the ending? Well, as always Jay Kristoff knows how to gut my heart happily into tiny pieces while smiling gleefully. Because he knows that I know that I am going to read anything he writes! And I love his stories for it!

About the author:

Jay Kristoff is the #1 international, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of THE NEVERNIGHT CHRONICLE, THE ILLUMINAE FILES and THE LOTUS WAR. He is the winner of five Aurealis Awards, an ABIA, has over half a million books in print and is published in over thirty five countries, most of which he has never visited. He is as surprised about all of this as you are. He is 6’7 and has approximately 12,000 days to live.

He does not believe in happy endings.

Review: "A Thousand Perfect Notes" by C.G. Drews

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

summary from GoodReads

An emotionally charged story of music, abuse and, ultimately, hope.

Beck hates his life. He hates his violent mother. He hates his home. Most of all, he hates the piano that his mother forces him to play hour after hour, day after day. He will never play as she did before illness ended her career and left her bitter and broken. But Beck is too scared to stand up to his mother, and tell her his true passion, which is composing his own music - because the least suggestion of rebellion on his part ends in violence.

When Beck meets August, a girl full of life, energy and laughter, love begins to awaken within him and he glimpses a way to escape his painful existence. But dare he reach for it?



I knew from the beginning that I was going to both cry and laugh with this book. Seeing the reactions and the gifs of many blogger friends and how much the book was loved since day one, I knew that I had to read it!

I mean it's PaperFury's book! The one who makes us poor bloggers laugh and lusts after cake and ice cream and is always in danger of dying by collapsed bookshelves!

A Thousand Perfect Notes is the story of Beck, a 15 years old boy who lives in the poor suburbs with his monster of Mom and his sweet little sister Joey. His mother, who was a world-known pianist but Becks calls her the Maestro, literally abuses him in order to make him achieve perfection in playing the piano. As Beck slowly forms a friendship with August, the cheery and wonderful classmate, he will also start to build his defenses and even stand for himself.

There is such a beauty about this book! It celebrates life, sunshine and even music despite the fact that Beck mentions many times that he hates it. And every character, every dialogue, even the scene with the cake and the ice cream sounded and felt so much like Drews's voice that I couldn't help but love them all!

The ending gutted me; it's not bad but it's sad and bittersweet yet with a small tone of an anticipating symphony which will make your heart soar.
Absolutely brilliant, C.G. Drews's debut novel is a gem to have!

About the author:

C.G. Drews lives in Australia with her piano and the goal of reading every book in existence. Consequently, her brain has overflowed with words and she spends her days writing novels to make you laugh or cry (or both). She never sleeps and believes in cake for breakfast.

Cover Reveal: "Respect" (The Breaking Point #3) by Jay Crownover


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jay Crownover, comes the next title in her The Breaking Point romantic suspense series, RESPECT. Don’t miss the amazing cover below, and pre-order your copy today!


Cover designed By Hang Le


Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn't the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she'd given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind. She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn't feel like surrender... but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It's a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She'd much rather go out and build her own.


RESPECT is coming August 7, 2018! Pre-order your copy today!

ARC Review: "Spinning Silver" by Naomi Novik

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed--and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.



I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 

The beauty of Naomi Novik's writing can be found in her characters. I had loved Uprooted and it is no wonder that I loved Spinning Silver too!
Our story takes place in a fantasy Russian inspired kingdom which borders with the magic lands of the Staryk; they are not exactly a different dimension but they are connected in a way to the seasons.

Myriem is the daughter of a Jew moneylender who is, to be quite frank, bad at his job. So she hardens her heart and takes her father's job. But the story doesn't stop here; as we move into the plot, more characters appear, who despite making everything complex, they connect with each other in a surprising way; Wanda, Stepon, Irina, Mirthanius and Myriem all together forge their own paths and prove their worth in a world that is too harsh to the different and on women.

Another surprising part was the almost lack of romance; it's not there but suddenly it appears close to the ending of the book, created by the circumstances the bravery to face your own fears. This is by far one of the best books of 2018; with elements of Russian mythology, the story of the Snow Queen and Rumplestiltskin, Spinning Silver is an amazing book to have!

About the author:

An avid reader of fantasy literature since age six, when she first made her way through The Lord of the Rings, Naomi Novik is also a history buff with a particular interest in the Napoleonic era and a fondness for the work of Patrick O’Brian and Jane Austen. She studied English literature at Brown University, and did graduate work in computer science at Columbia University before leaving to participate in the design and development of the computer game Neverwinter Nights: Shadow of Undrentide. Over the course of a brief winter sojourn spent working on the game in Edmonton, Canada (accompanied by a truly alarming coat that now lives brooding in the depths of her closet), she realized she preferred writing to programming, and on returning to New York, decided to try her hand at novels.

Naomi lives in New York City with her husband and six computers. Her website is at
