{Birthday Giveaway} The Continent by Keira Drake

Book Summary:
For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two nations remain perpetually locked in combat. Most citizens lucky enough to tour the Continent do so to observe the spectacle and violence of battle, a thing long vanished in the peaceful realm of the Spire. For Vaela, the war holds little interest. As a smart and talented apprentice cartographer and a descendent of the Continent herself, she sees the journey as a dream come true: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But Vaela’s dream all too quickly turns to nightmare as the journey brings her face-to-face with the brutal reality of a war she’s only read about. Observing from the safety of a heli-plane, Vaela is forever changed by the sight of the bloody battle being waged far beneath her. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, Vaela finds herself much closer to danger than she’d ever imagined—and with an entirely new perspective as to what war truly means. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

My Review:

The Continent is a trip of a lifetime. A beautiful place to explore and see from afar.

This book was such an fantastic read. I thought this was such an original story. Something I never read before. I’m glad I gave this book a chance. It was hard reading the struggles the main character had to go through, but I did like her in the book. It very detailed world that drew me.

Vaela has such an creative nature in the book. Wanted to see the world around her. For her birthday she gets a trip of a lifetime. When and accident happens, leaving her alone in the wild of The Continent. Facing so many dangers and trying to stay alive alone. Will Vaela find a way home again?

Thought this book was a fast pace read. I enjoy watching Vaela grow and learn new things. This book is good for those who looking for something new and adventurous.

I’m giving away a new paperback copy of the book for my birthday.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} The Storm Runner by J.C Cervantes

Book Summary:
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno—for his one good leg. What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in—unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.

My Review:

This book was so much fun. Really did enjoyed every minute of it. Also did learned about some Mayan mythology. This middle grade book is for all ages.

I adore Zane in the book. He was like the underdog throughout the story. He got this limp and no powers. Yet everyone thinks he can break this god out prison. There are secrets to who he is. So what Zane is story and what does it have to do with gods?

I think the book is a quick read. Sadly took me a while to finish it bc I had work. If you enjoy action adventure books, while learning new mythology, this book could for you. Comes out the 18th.

Lucky for my readers I have an extra arc to giveaway on my blog. US Only.

{Blog Tour& Giveaway} Love Beyond Opposites by Molly E. Lee

Book Summary:

Love Beyond Opposites (Grad Night #3)
by Molly E. Lee
Publication Date: May 7, 2018
Publisher: Entangled TEEN
If high school has taught mathlete Jade Aaron anything, it’s that nerds never get the guy.
So when rock star Lennon Pryor starts pursuing her, It’s not rocket science. This doesn’t add up.
I mean, sure, he’s hot.
And charming.
And a god on the guitar…
But he’s also the world’s biggest player. Being with him would be a bigger mistake than 2+2=5.
Until graduation night, when a reckless moment leads to a reckless kiss. And now Jade’s falling for the one guy destined to break her heart.

My Review:

Really did love the story to this book. It was a simple and quick read. I fell in love with the two main characters and was rooting for them until the end.

I really like Jade in this book. She’s a little nerdy which I enjoyed. Seems a little shy and keeps to herself. Jade is known for being the good girl, but with a chance meeting at a party, she finds herself fallen for Lennon.

Then there is Lennon. I really liked him in this story too. He’s the soon to be rock star. Has groupies all over him and he’s not ready yet to settle with any girl because he doesn’t want to break any more hearts. But one faithful night him and Jade go on an adventure before the end of school. Will sparks fly between these two opposites?

This book was an quick read. Just a simple story which I enjoy. If you enjoy simple romances, or looking for a new young adult comtempory. Then check out Love Beyond Opposites by Molly E. Lee

Happy Reading!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

Book Summary:
A summer read about first love, feminism, and ice cream.
Summer in Sand Lake isn’t complete without a trip to Meade Creamery—the local ice cream stand founded in 1944 by Molly Meade who started making ice cream to cheer up her lovesick girlfriends while all the boys were away at war. Since then, the stand has been owned and managed exclusively by local girls, who inevitably become the best of friends. Seventeen-year-old Amelia and her best friend Cate have worked at the stand every summer for the past three years, and Amelia is “Head Girl” at the stand this summer. When Molly passes away before Amelia even has her first day in charge, Amelia isn’t sure that the stand can go on. That is, until Molly’s grandnephew Grady arrives and asks Amelia to stay on to help continue the business…but Grady’s got some changes in mind.

My Review:

I can say this book is sweet. I liked the story idea of a group of friends working in an ice cream place for years together. Things change when the owner dies and the new hot manager starts and changes things up. He seems to be more trouble than what he’s worth.

I love the friendship between Cate and Amelie. Cate is like the bad girl, while Amelie is the sweet one. With this being their last summer together, will the new male manager ruin things between them?

A lot of ice cream was wasted throughout the book. The bonds and the friendships at the ice cream shop gets tested. It was a good book on best friends and trying to enjoy their last summer, before moving away to college.

Are you excited for the release of this cute summery read? Disappointed that you didn’t receive an arc? Well, you’re in luck!!! I’m giving away my personal arc copy to one lucky reader. Good Luck!!

Happy Reading!!!
