Blog Tour: Jadeite’s Journey

Blog Tour: Jadeite’s Journey

Hello lovelies and welcome to my stop on the Jadeite’s Journey blog tour! Excerpt Jadeite glanced around at the people huddled together in small clusters. That’s when she realized the spot where they’d slept was empty. Malachite had vanished. She scanned the room, but he was nowhere in sight. He was not in the 3 alcove to her right. W hat if he’d gone outside? H er stomach twisted. She wouldn’t put anything past Malachite. She hurried to the main entrance, where a small group of men remained. She was about to turn back when one man stepped aside. Malachite slipped […]

Monthly Wrap Up: January 2017

Monthly Wrap Up: January 2017

January has been a rough month for us all I think. So much is going on in the world that I feel like I have a hard time blogging. Not to worry though! I think I’ll be making some changes shortly and hopefully that will help me to blog more. THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH I officially decided to get two hedgehogs and they will be home with me very soon! I’ve been doing really good with my reading challenges so far. Go me! I don’t think much else happend. Like I said, January was rough for us […]

Cover Trend Alert: Splish Splash

Cover Trend Alert: Splish Splash

Cover Trend Alert is a new feature hosted here at Books for Thought. It’s a monthly feature that discusses a young adult or middle grade book cover trend we’ve being seeing within the last year or so. If there’s a trend you’d like to see featured let me know in the comments! The trend this month is: water. Now this is mostly a 2015 trend that seems to be fading away a little. But did anyone else notice how many covers with water there was last year? There’s always been a few books with the ocean on it but there’s been a […]

Book Review: Living in the Shallows (UK Crush #1)

Book Review: Living in the Shallows (UK Crush #1)

I feel like this is one of those books that I probably wouldn’t usually like, but for whatever reason at the time that I was reading it I actually enjoyed it. I’m not usually a big fan of contemporary or romance stories but this one was kind of fun to read. It was about a girl who ends up finding a job as a translator to a super famous boy band and she becomes friends with them. It’s like a fantasy come true for some people! The band actually reminded me a lot of One Direction (probably because they were […]

Blog Tour: The Unwanted (Black Water Tales #2)

Blog Tour: The Unwanted (Black Water Tales #2)

Hello lovelies and welcome to my stop on the The Unwanted blog tour! The Unwated is a young adult horror/supernatural book that I’ve been told is perfect for fall! It’s the second book in this series but it can be read as a standalone which I think is great! When I am writing a book, I always create a Pinterest board for the project to inspire me to create dramatic visuals that can be incorporated into the work. The mood board that I created for The Unwanted is cold and lonely and reflects the emotions that flow through every person, place and thing in […]

Cover Love: Let It Snow

Cover Love: Let It Snow

Cover Love in a new feature in 2017 here at Books for Thought. Being a graphic design myself, covers are something I notice when I first see a book and a lot of the time I’ll read books based off of their covers. This feature is aimed to showcase those covers that caught my eye so that you too can share the love I have of these covers. If there’s any themes you’d like to see in the future let me know in the comments! Hello lovelies and welcome to Cover Love #2! Today’s theme is winter inspired and it’s some […]

Book Review: Dawn Study (Soulfinders #3)

Book Review: Dawn Study (Soulfinders #3)

This is a series that has been very close to my heart for a long time. I’m pretty sad that it’s over and I hope that there will end up being more. This was a great finale for this series. I felt happy and sad all at the same time because we started off our journey with these characters when they were pretty young. Now they’re all grown up and it makes me feel good (yet very sad!). I laughed along with these characters, I teared up a bit, and I possibly had a couple heart attacks, but I made […]

Book Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)

Book Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)

This is a book that I went into with high expectations and it probably wasn’t a good idea. I didn’t not like this book but I didn’t really love it either. I really loved the idea of all these people living in a giant tower. That was great but we didn’t really get to see much of it. We saw bits and pieces of it but we didn’t learn anything about how it came to be or how it even works. It felt like we were expected to know this place already and even though it was set in New […]

Book Review: Summer of Sloane

Book Review: Summer of Sloane

If I could rate this book based off of the first half then it would have gotten a four and maybe a 5. It was the first half of this story that sucked me in and kept me there. I loved the idea of our main character going to Hawaii to try and clear her head and figure things out. I wish that was something I could do but sadly it’s a little too pricy for me. In the beginning I liked our main character Sloane. She’s going through a really confusing time and I thought she was doing really […]

Readalong: The Island by S. Usher Evans

Hello lovelies! I’m super excited to be participating in this readalong! I first read The Island last year (I think?) and just recently finished the trilogy.

Usher Evans (which is free, links below). We’ll be reading 5 chapters a week (they aren’t that long really) in […]
