{Arc Review} Fan the Fame by Anna Priemaza

Book Summary:
Equal parts Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl and Jennifer Mathieu’s Moxie, this fiercely crafted feminist YA novel takes on fandom, accountability, and doing the right thing. Even when it hurts.
Lainey wouldn’t mind lugging a camera around a video game convention for her brother, aka YouTube superstar Codemeister, except for one big problem. He’s funny and charming online, but behind closed doors, Cody is a sexist jerk.
SamTheBrave came to this year’s con with one mission: meeting Codemeister—because getting his idol’s attention could be the big break Sam needs.
ShadowWillow is already a successful streamer. But when her fans start shipping her with Code, Shadow concocts a plan to turn the rumors to her advantage.
The three teens’ paths collide when Lainey records one of Cody’s hateful rants on video. Because she’s determined to spill the truth to her brother’s fans—even if that means putting Sam and Shadow in the crosshairs.
Told through three relatable voices and arriving on the heels of the author’s widely praised debut novel, Kat and Meg Conquer the World, this sophomore novel is a nuanced and timely story about followers, fame, and fighting for what’s right.

My review:

Fan the Fame is a must read. More people need to know about. The storyline is awesome. I love how it set in a video game convention. Also enjoy some of the characters in the book.

Laniey is like behind the scenes when she goes to these convention with her brother. She does the leg work and gets order around all the time. Her brother treats her like a assistant than a sister half the time. Tired of her brother being a jerk, she plans to get her revenge at the next video convention.

Sam the Brave is a new to the you tube gaming world. He would do anything to get on codemeister good and make his YouTube popular.

Shadowwillow is a popular girl YouTube gamer. Rumors are going around that she dating codemeister. She can use those rumors to boost her channel and try to get to the top.

What happens all these three people bump into each other at a convention? You can just say there lots of drama that unfolds.

This had everything you want for a video game convention. Get a look behind the scenes and what it like being a YouTube gamer. So many fun fandoms all smash together. This book was such a fun read and I really love it. Hope more people add this to there tbr.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Wilder Girls by Rory Power

Book Summary:
It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.
It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.
But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

My Review:

Wilder Girls is a creepy read. I did liked the storyline in the book. I did not felt any connection with the characters in the book.

The book setting is in a boarding school. The vox virus is a deadly outbreak and the girls been quarantined for a long time. With no access to the outside world.

By chance, Hetty is elected boat girl. She must help bring in the supplies, and she learn learn some dark secrets that are hiding behind the gate. When her best friend goes missing, she will do anything to unlock those secrets and get her friend back.

This book was a short read and a ending leaving you with more answers. Wilder Girls was a little twisted and at times I was confused at what’s going on. The cover did draw my attention to the book and the summary sound promising.

You just have to wait and unlock Baxter School secrets on July 9th.

Happy Reading!!
