{Arc Review} Salt and Sugar by Rebecca Carvalho

Summary:

The grandchildren of two rival Brazilian bakeries fall in love despite their families’ feud in this delicious debut rom-com perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and Gloria Chao.

Trust neither thin-bottomed frying pans nor Molinas.

Lari Ramires has always known this to be true. In Olinda, Brazil, her family’s bakery, Salt, has been at war with the Molinas’ bakery across the street, Sugar, for generations. But Lari’s world turns upside down when her beloved grandmother passes away. On top of that, a big supermarket chain has moved to town, forcing many of the small businesses to close.

Determined to protect her home, Lari does the unthinkable—she works together with Pedro Molina to save both of their bakeries. Lari realizes she might not know Pedro as well as she thought—and she maybe even likes what she learns—but the question remains: Can a Ramires and a Molina truly trust one another?

Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer

Summary:
A darkly funny and spectacularly original exploration of friendship, goodbyes—and spontaneous combustion.
Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc.
Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on.
Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It’s an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the President of the United States.

My Review:

It hard enough dealing with the stress of high school. Now you must deal with the stress of blowing up.

The main character, Katelyn is looking forward to her last year of school. Going to prom with the boy she loves. Having fun with her best friends. The only thing that stopping her having fun, when her classmates start blowing. Katelyn tries to hard to enjoy her last year or it may be her last..

Spontaneous was such a good book. Mostly gets you into the Halloween mood. Despite some kids blowing up and people afraid of the senior class, Katelyn makes the best of whatever time she has left with her boyfriend and best friend. Might have some trigger warning when kids start blowing up. No one in town can make sense of it. This book is all about having fun because it may be your last day on earth. I did like the cover to this read, it kinda cute and fun looking.

When I first heard about this book, I saw the movie trailer. It looks like a lot of fun the movie and it on demand for those who want to watch it.

{Arc Review} Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon

Book Summary:
The start of a fierce fantasy duology about three maidens who are chosen for their land’s greatest honor…and one girl determined to save her sister from the grave.
In the walled city-state of Alu, Kammani wants nothing more than to become the accomplished healer her father used to be before her family was cast out of their privileged life in shame.
When Alu’s ruler falls deathly ill, Kammani’s beautiful little sister, Nanaea, is chosen as one of three sacred maidens to join him in the afterlife. It’s an honor. A tradition. And Nanaea believes it is her chance to live an even grander life than the one that was stolen from her.
But Kammani sees the selection for what it really is—a death sentence.
Desperate to save her sister, Kammani schemes her way into the palace to heal the ruler. There she discovers more danger lurking in the sand-stone corridors than she could have ever imagined and that her own life—and heart—are at stake. But Kammani will stop at nothing to dig up the palace’s buried secrets even if it means sacrificing everything…including herself.

My Review:

Gravemaidens was such an addictive read. I had trouble putting the book down. The storyline was something different which I enjoy. Did like some of the characters in the book.

When a king on his deathbed, people are chosen as gravemaidens. They are to be put to death with the king. Then enter the underworld.

Kammani life is anything but easy. Always looking for the next meal, healing people and keeping family together. With her father always running off drunk, it up to her to heal his patients. With so much going on she neglects a guy friend attention or notice her sister need to be a gravemaiden.

When Kammani’s sister is chosen gravemaiden. It up to her to heal the king and save her.

This book was a fast pace story. I like the world building idea to it. I like the way Kammani always looking out for her family. She puts to much on her plate and don’t pay attention to the people around her. Gravemaiden recently came out so you guys might like it.

How the Lights Gets in by Katy Upperman

Book Summary:
Since her sister’s tragic death, seventeen-year-old Callie Ryan has basically given up. Her grades have plummeted, she’s quit her swim team, and she barely recognizes the people her parents have become.
When she returns to her aunt’s run-down coastal Victorian one year after Chloe’s death, Callie resigns herself to a summer of guilt and home renovations. She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the tiny coastal town or by Tucker Morgan, a local boy brimming with sunshine.
But even as her days begin to brighten, Callie’s nights are crowded with chilling dreams, unanswered questions, and eerie phenomenon that have her convinced she’s being haunted. Will Callie be able to figure out what her sister is trying to communicate before it’s too late?

My Review:

I liked How the Lights Get in book. It was a nice mystery read and I did like some of the characters. Mostly the book is about grieving a lost one and trying to move on.

Callie in the book deals with the lost of her sister very hard. She smokes, weed and just stays in all the time. Her family is a mess also. The mother drinks to much and her father tries to hold everyone together. Maybe sending Callie over her aunt’s place might help heal. She starts seeing her sister ghost and regrets what had happen to her sister. Will Callie be able to find peace and move on?

This book a slow mystery read. Also deals with coping of a lost one. The ghost of Callie’s sister you have to guess she is real or all inside her head. The book has some twists going on. If you looking for a nice mystery, you might like this one.

Happy Reading!

{Blog Tour} Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan

“Prepare for a snow-frosted, blood-drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love
ends up being the nightmare.” – Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-
Touched Queen
A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.
A prince in danger must decide who to trust.
A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.
Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.
In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world
of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between
dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something
Dark and Holy trilogy.
“This book destroyed me and I adored it.”- Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author
of Caraval

My Review:

Wicked Saints was something new for me. I was intrigued with the storyline and connected with the some of the characters in the book.

Nadya in the begining was in hiding. She has powers to talk with gods, with powerful people on the hunt for her. When the place she was hiding out in, is attack, she is force to join the rebels. With both common goals to take down the king, will Nadya be brave enough to use her gifts?

Serefin is a prince, on the hunt for Nadya. He is a ruthless prince and would do anything to get his hands on her. Not liking the way his father rules, he might have to form unlikely allies. With a lot at stake, is Setrfin suited to rule?

This book is filled with with adventures and lots of twists. It told in points of view between Serefin and Nadya. If your mood for something dark and twisted, you might enjoy this read. Thanks to St Martain Press for letting me be a part of the blog tour.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Book Summary:
A divided nation. Four Queens. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.
Get in quick, get out quicker.
These are the words Keralie Corrington lives by as the preeminent dipper in the Concord, the central area uniting the four quadrants of Quadara. She steals under the guidance of her mentor Mackiel, who runs a black market selling their bounty to buyers desperate for what they can’t get in their own quarter. For in the nation of Quadara, each quarter is strictly divided from the other. Four queens rule together, one from each region:
Toria: the intellectual quarter that values education and ambition
Ludia: the pleasure quarter that values celebration, passion, and entertainment
Archia: the agricultural quarter that values simplicity and nature
Eonia: the futurist quarter that values technology, stoicism and harmonious community
When Keralie intercepts a comm disk coming from the House of Concord, what seems like a standard job goes horribly wrong. Upon watching the comm disks, Keralie sees all four queens murdered in four brutal ways. Hoping that discovering the intended recipient will reveal the culprit – information that is bound to be valuable bartering material with the palace – Keralie teams up with Varin Bollt, the Eonist messenger she stole from, to complete Varin’s original job and see where it takes them.

My Review:

Four queens rule the land, peacefully for years, but what happens when they die. In this new read , you are throw in this murder mystery. Who has more to gain, when the queens dies?

I really enjoyed this book a lot. The storyline was original and something different. I did enjoy the main characters in the book. It told in a couple point of views, even of the queens story.

Keralie is the best thief around town. In order to survive, she steals what she can, has cut herself off with her family. Her latest target, will turn her life upside. Somehow she gets tangle up with the four dead queens. Now it up to her to find the answers before it’s to late.

This book is a fast pace read. I do love the cover to it. This is perfect for those who love mysteries books. It was neat seeing how different the queens rule their land, but still come together as rulers and friends. This book is coming out Feb 26th. There is an barnes and nobles editon I really want to get.

Looking for a good new book, then pick up a copy of Four Dead Queens.

Happy Reading!!!
