Summary:
Three lush and adventurous stories in the Star-Touched world.

Death and Night
He was Lord of Death, cursed never to love. She was Night incarnate, destined to stay alone. After a chance meeting, they wonder if, perhaps, they could be meant for more. But danger crouches in their paths, and the choices they make will set them on a journey that will span lifetimes.

Poison and Gold
Now that her wish for a choice has come true, Aasha struggles to control her powers. But when an opportunity to help Queen Gauri and King Vikram's new reign presents itself, she is thrown into the path of the fearsome yet enchanting Spy Mistress. To help her friends, Aasha will have to battle her insecurities and perhaps, along the way, find love.

Rose and Sword
There is a tale whispered in the dark of the Empire of Bharat-Jain. A tale of a bride who loses her bridegroom on the eve of her wedding. But is it a tale or a truth?

Blog Tour: Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson


When I was asked to participate in the blog tour for Dance of Thieves, I was given the opportunity to ask Mary Pearson one question about the books. One thing that fascinated me about The Remnant Chronicles is the world itself. There are all these kingdoms that were formed by several very different groups of people for various reasons, and the books in TRC and now Dance of Thieves explore the very complicated relationships between the kingdoms and a few individuals living in them. At this point, we are very familiar with Morrighan and the Komizar's Venda with a splash of Dalbreck thrown in... but now it's time to see NEW lands (and a splash of Venda under new management). So check out my question to Mary-the-author and be sure to enter my giveaway for a SIGNED copy of Dance of Thieves, the start of an all-new series set in the world of The Remnant Chronicles.

PS Anyone who has not yet read The Remnant Chronicles: YES, you can read Dance of Thieves without reading TRC first! It will definitely spoil the ending of the series (a couple deaths & some relationships), and I LOVE TRC so I absolutely recommend you read them, but you can totally jump right on board with Kazi & Jase in Dance of Thieves.

Summary:
A new novel in the New York Times–bestselling Remnant Chronicles universe, in which a reformed thief and the young leader of an outlaw dynasty lock wits in a battle that may cost them their lives—and their hearts.

When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family, who have always governed by their own rules. But a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty's resentment and anger.

At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions. 

Challenge Accepted: Arc August 2018


In case you don't know about it, ARC August is an awesome reading challenge hosted by Octavia, Shelly, and Angie of Read. Sleep. Repeat. that allows bloggers the opportunity to focus on the unreleased titles we have in our possession but haven't read yet. 

I like to split my ARC August goals into two different groups because for me, ARC August isn't just about getting books read, it's also making sure I give them proper attention and get some reviews up. I also want to take the opportunity to review books from earlier in the year because they deserve some special attention too.

I don't expect to read all of the ARCs on my TBR list, but this is the stack I'll be picking my reads from. The two starred books are the two that are definite must reads for the month, and everything else will be decided on by a mood reading basis (or if there's an event coming up, which is the case for a couple of these). Edit 8/9/18: I just realized I never said a number. I want to read at least 5 off this list before the end of the month.

Are you participating in ARC August? If so, what's on your list? Which book do you guys think I should start with? Let me know in the comments!

Summary:
Move over, Charlotte Brontë. The authors of the New York Times bestselling My Lady Jane are back with an irreverent spin on Jane Eyre—a tale of mischief, romance, and supernatural mayhem perfect for fans of The Princess Bride or A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

You may think you know the story. Penniless orphan Jane Eyre begins a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester—and, Reader, she marries him. Or does she?

Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Bronte, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.

Summary:
Getting in is just the beginning.

Phoebe can’t wait to get to college. On her own, discovering new things, no curfew…she’ll be free. And she’ll be totally different: cooler, prettier, smarter…the perfect potential girlfriend. Convenient: the only person from her high school also going to York is her longtime crush, Luke.

Luke didn’t set out to redefine himself, but as soon as he arrives on campus, he finds himself dumping his long-term long-distance girlfriend. And the changes don’t stop there. In fact, being on a soccer team is the only thing that stays the same.

Just when things start looking up (and Phoebe and Luke start hooking up), drama looms on the horizon. Rumors swirl about the Wall of Shame, a secret text chain run by Luke’s soccer team, filled with compromising photos of girls. As the women on campus determine to expose the team and shut down the account, Luke and Phoebe find themselves grappling with confusing feelings and wondering how they’ll ever make it through freshman year.

Listmania Monday: The Prettiest Naked Covers


The fun thing about creating these lists of books with unique design aspects is that I'm learning a lot about... well, book design. And one of the best things I've learned is the technical terms printers & designers use for the various parts of a book. So most readers just call a hardcover book without its dust jacket a "naked book," which is always a fun term, but a hardbound book's cover is actually the case cover. If you're interested in learning more about the different parts and design aspects of printing books, my favorite source is The Book Designer. Today, I'm talking about books with case covers that have been embellished in some way as a nod to the book or the author.

How are case covers embellished? Again, most of us typically use the term embossed. I have discovered that this term is factually incorrect as emboss means to raise, and because case covers are cardboard that have been covered in fabric or paper, the surface isn't able to be raised. Deboss is the correct term when talking about stamped case covers, and the two kinds of debossing that occur are a blind stamp—an uncolored depression on the case cover—or foil stamping—using colored foil to make the stamp stand out. Dust jackets, on the other hand, ARE able to be embossed because a stamp can be applied to the bottom, and the title, author name, or art can be pushed up. Source

The other way covers are embellished is by using a specially designed wrap instead of the more typical paper/cloth wraps. These covers are smoother and glossier, and usually more colorful because they can be printed, unlike the cloth covers. Examples include Suzanne Young's The Program series, Kayla Cagan's Piper Perish, and Matthew Quick's Every Exquisite Thing.

Note 1: Unless specified, the default is the US "regular" edition.
Note 1A: German editions are really fucking cool & super underrated, you guys. Everyone always talks about US & UK/Australia, but GERMAN EDITIONS ARE GORGEOUS.
Note 2: Most of these are YA fiction, but I AM including some middle grade and adult fiction and YA nonfiction.
Note 3: Many books published by HarperCollins's Greenwillow Books imprint are stamped with a Greenwillow-specifc stamp, but I don't know if it's all of them, nor do I have a complete list of those titles. Eliza and Her Monsters is one of these.
Note 4: If I have one book in a series listed instead of the entire series, it's because I can't confirm the entire series has a stamped cover.
Note 5: This list got way longer than I expected. I didn't want to cut the MG & adult fiction because I WORKED HARD TO FIND ALL OF THESE, DANGIT, SO I'M GOING TO SHOW THEM ALL. But I have bolded the "regular" YA editions to make those easier to spot.
