April Wrap-Up

The month is already over!! Goodness, where did the time go? (also am too lazy to find my header lmao)

First, let's talk about what happened this month.

Writing Things

I did Camp NaNoWriMo! And I not only finished my 20k word goal, I also finished this draft of the manuscript! YAYYYYYY! There have been so many changes from my first draft, it's fascination to see the journey it has taken me on.

Reading Things

Ummm. Yea.

Life Things

I have a fun announcement, but I can't say anything just yet! Still, watch this space for more bookish fun :D

Giveaway Winner

So if you didn't know, the book of the month was Every Day by David Levithan. The winner of the candle from Cornerfolds Candles was Rossi, who I have already spoken with. 

I'll be back tomorrow with another monthly giveaway. There won't be a review tomorrow as I'm still catching up from my month away from reading. I'll be back next Monday though, likely with a review of ACOWAR (WHERE IS MY COPY DAMMIT I WANT IT EARLY TOOOOOO).

Review: The Alchemists of Loom

Title: The Alchemists of Loom
Author: Elise Kova
Publisher: Keymaster Press
Release Date: January 10, 2017

Her vengeance. His vision.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.
