ARCS/BOOK MAIL 

  • Sha received an ARC of Thomas Wildus and the Book of Sorrows by J.M. Bergen courtesy of Kelsey at Book Publicity Services. Release Date: February 2 2019. Why are we excited? I won’t deny I was first hooked by pretty colours on the cover (I’m a moth to light sometimes), but then was further sold by the premise of a young man’s adventures into magic sparking in a, of all places, a bookstore. Sign me up for that!  
  • Sha received an ARC of Exit Plans for Teenage Freaks by Nathan Burgoine courtesy of Bold Strokes Books through NetGalley. Release Date: December 11 2018. Why are we excited? Exit Plans sounds like a fun adventure feat. a gay teen (meet Cole!) who finds out he can teleport through the most hilarious and awkward scenarios.
  • Sha received an ARC of Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell courtesy of Simon Pulse through NetGalley. Release Date: May 26 2019. Why are we excited? The first line of the pitch promises this book is “in the tradition of The Lunar Chronicles” (!!!!!) and even better, its a reimagining of Les Miserables. I’m not screaming, YOU’RE screaming.
  • Sha received an ARC of Roam by C.H. Armstrong courtesy of Central Avenue Publishing through NetGalley (my second “wish” granted!). Release Date: February 5 2019. Why are we excited? Roam deals with teen homelessness, a topic I’ve wanted to learn more about. Abby and her family are living on the streets, a secret she tries to hide while going to school and looking towards college.

    1. Exit Plans was so so so good. I finished it over the weekend and am ready to rave! And I was surprised by the entire Roberts/Adeyemi debacle too. Attacking someone in a public forum, not to mention without doing any research, is a poor move.
