Review: Obsidio

Title: Obsidio
Author: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Knopf BFYR
Release Date: March 13, 2018

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion?

Meanwhile, Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha's past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.

Co-Blogger Search

Hey all, I'm finally, finally looking for a co-blogger. I've been saying for years that I need one, and I'm finally doing it!

So the thing is, with my full time job, the candle business (pretty much full time), and my writing (which I'm now about to start querying), blogging is falling to the wayside. So I need someone to help me keep up! I don't have nearly the time I'd like to post as much.

So here's the thing! Fill out this nifty google form here if you are interested. As my co-blogger, you get access to my Netgalley and if I ever get offered physical arcs. I will also be willing to forward on physical arcs I get at conferences.

As my co-blogger, you can also use my blog and stats to request arcs form publishers. I would ask that you post once a week as either a review or a discussion post, barring special circumstances. You can, of course, post more if you like!

Any questions? Let me know in the comments below, and I'll get back to you!

Review: The Cruel Prince

Title: The Cruel Prince
Author: Holly Black
Publisher: Little Brown BFYR
Release Date: January 2, 2018

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Being behind on everything bookish

I swear I'm still here, guys! I swear! 

So I've gotten really behind on writing reviews. I have two empty templates started and just no time to write them.

And then I have multiple other reviews I plan to write. I fail. I know I fail.

I'm finally and slowly catching up on reading and taking #bookstagram photos. But life likes getting in the way. So tell me something! I'm trying to get more active on here, but I never know what type of content to post. What are some of your favorite types of bookish blog posts?
