SINKING by Sarah Armstrong-Garner // Book Review + DRIFTING Blog Tour

Image
Good day, m'dear Dragons! Today, I'm delighted to share a book review (and some other pretty cool stuff 😉) in honor of Sarah Armstrong-Garner's latest release, Drifting!

I had the honor of reading and reviewing Sinking for this tour, and let me tell y'all... IT'S QUITE THE ADVENTURE. 😻 I won't fangirl too much (that's what the book review's for 😉), but you get the idea -- IT'S AWESOME. Without further ado, here's Sinking...

ABOUT SINKING

BOOK ONE OF THE SINKING TRILOGY
Jocelyn washes up on the shore of eighteenth century Ireland, alone, naked, and missing all of her memories. Taken in by a lonely old woman full of plots and schemes for the lovely yet enigmatic creature, Jocelyn knows only one thing. She longs for the sea with every ounce of her being. Yet it tried to kill her.

Aidan Boyd loves two things. His ship and the sea. When Jocelyn is thrust upon his vessel in the midst of his superstitious crew, he finds himself intoxicated by her --…

HELLO, MY DRAGONS. 💕 I am SO EXCITED to be here today, to share about an epic new story with y'all -- The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin, releasing May 1st from Enclave Publishing! 😍😍😍

This book, y'all... I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. I am so, crazy excited for it to release! Magic, treason, storytelling... "Selling stories is a deadly business." 💗 Without further ado, The Story Peddler:

ABOUT THE BOOK

BOOK ONE OF THE WEAVER TRILOGY
Selling stories is a deadly business.
Tanwen doesn't just tell stories -- she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.

During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king's guards hunts her down... and they&#…

8 Steps for a Better Night's Sleep

IT'S OFFICIALLY EXAM SEASON!!!! Which means "yaay!" bc SCHOOL IS ALMOST OUT but also tears bc NOBODY LIKES EXAMS.


⮙⮙ Current mood, right there. ⮙⮙
Besides preparing well and eating a hearty breakfast on Exam Day™, one of the best exam-related pieces of advice I've ever received is to get plenty of sleep the night before the test. And because REST IS AWESOME and May = the month of AP exams, SATs, and state testing (😱😱😱), I guess you know what I'll be talking about... I'm proud to present: my favorite evening routine for a better night's sleep. 💤

Also, shoutout to Ella Marie @ February Fairy for her evening routine post, which inspired this one! Go check out her blog, Dragons -- IT'S AMAZING! 💟

Now, on to the post... 😉

SOCIAL MEDIA IS SO TEMPTING. Right before bed, at the end of the day, that nagging temptation to just hop on Facebook for a quick moment, or Instagram to see what your best friend…

Beautiful People: The Farewell Edition ft. Radha O'Connor & Keyan Baudin

HELLO MY AWESOME DRAGON-NINJAS 💖💖💖

For the past few years, Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up & Further In have hosted Beautiful People, a monthly series of questions designed to better acquaint authors with their characters. Last Thursday, they announced this April as Beautiful People's final chapter (TEARSSSS 😭😭😭), with the possibility of epilogues in the distant future (PLEASE 😍😍😍).

I'm so sad to see Beautiful People go, but I also totally understand the need to let something go as a result of a busy life. 💝 And there's always the archives, when the need for new questions arises!

Today, I'll be tackling Beautiful People: the Farewell Edition for Radha O'Connor, the MC of When the Sky Cries (a story I REALLY MISS RN 💔... but Camp NaNoWriMo must come first), along with the March 2015 edition for Keyan, the MC of The Scent of the Stars (my Camp NaNo novella). With no further comments, let's dive in!
