Cover Love: February 2017 Releases

Cover Love in a new feature in 2017 here at Books for Thought.

Book Review: A Darkness Absolute (Casey Duncan #2)

Book Review: A Darkness Absolute (Casey Duncan #2)

Kelley Armstrong is not one to disappoint and A Darkness Absolute was no exception. It’s different from a lot of other books she writes because usually they’re focus on paranormal. I think it’s great that she can write books like this one that involve lots of mystery with her usual hint of romance. I love the whole concept of Rockton in A Darkness Absolute (and the previous book of course). It’s a secret town that’s run by everyone in it and (lucky us) we get to see more of how it works in A Darkness Absolute. Everyone has to work to […]

Book Review: Caraval (Caraval #1)

Book Review: Caraval (Caraval #1)

The biggest thing I loved about Caraval was how magical it was. It wasn’t that magic was used so directly but that everything that happened had a little bit of magic in it. The outfits our characters wore were magical, the places they saw were magical, and even some of the other characters they met were full of magic. The magical aspects are what really held this book together for me because otherwise, I don’t think I would have finished.  “Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or performance. It’s the […]

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

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 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 […]
