Book Tour Spotlight: Proof of Lies by Diana Rodriguez Wallach

Posted March 18, 2017 by Hannah in uncategorized / 0 Comments

For all the stops on the Proof of Lies blog tour, head on over to YA Reads!

Proof of Lies (Anastasia Phoenix, #1) by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
Published by Entangled Teen
Published on March 7th, 2017
Genre: YA Contemporary/Mystery

Goodreads | Entangled Publishing | Amazon | B&N

Some secrets are best kept hidden… Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages. And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead. She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true. Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility. She will find her sister.

 

Diana Rodriguez Wallach is not the child of super spies, as far as she knows. But she is an avid traveler, and every scene in her books comes from a place she has lived or visited—from her senior year apartment in Boston, MA to the hotel where she stayed in Cortona, Italy. In addition to the Anastasia Phoenix series, Diana is also the author of the award-winning Amor and Summer Secrets series; the Mirror, Mirror short story collection; and essays in both Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories and Latina Authors and Their Muses. She is an advisory board member for the Philly Spells Writing Center, and is a Creative Writing Instructor for Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth. She holds a B.S. in Journalism from Boston University, and currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two kids. But of course, this all could be a masterly crafted piece of disinformation.  Website | Twitter | Facebook

All The Books I Need in 2017: The Diversity Edition

Posted February 25, 2017 by Hannah in uncategorized / 4 Comments

My final edition of All The Books I Need! Whew, we made it guys. And these aren’t even all the books I need. I keep adding more and more to my TBR – how about you? Are you just as bad as I am?

2017 is my year of reading diversely – something I recognise that I do not do enough of. And I need to rectify that straight away. There are so many wonderful #OwnVoices out there that need to be heard, and as readers, we do ourselves a disservice by not listening to them – by not being educated by them. Here are just a few – the tip of the iceberg – of diverse books releasing this year that I’d love to read. As always, click on the book cover to be linked to Goodreads so you can add it to your TBR as well!

There are so many more books I could have added to this list, but then we’d be here all day! Do you have any suggestions of what books are diverse favourites? Please let me know – I’d love to hear what books you love too!

All The Books I Need in 2017: The Adult Edition

Posted February 19, 2017 by Hannah in uncategorized / 0 Comments

It’s time for another All The Books because I’ve been incredibly lazy by not posting January, and now it is February and I’m slowly panicking at where the time has gone. But let’s not get carried away, because there are more books we should be adding to our TBRs and this time, it’s the Adult Edition!!

I’ve really started to branch out in the past year or so with my reading tastes, and I’ve found so many new books and authors to love. I’m completely smitten with historical romances, I love nail biting psychological thrillers and even started to delve into the non-fiction world a bit. While YA is always going to be my true love, branching out into the “adult” world of books means I have even more books I must read!! All books, as always, link back to Goodreads, so feel free to increase your TBR!!

      

    

    

   

What are you reading in 2017? If you have any recommendations, please let me know!

I’m so excited to be participating today in the release day blitz for New York Nights, the second standalone in the Heart of the City series by awesome Aussie author C.J. Duggan. New York Nights is a great, warm fuzzy type of a read, and I’m especially excited to share my review with you later in the week. But so you know what I’m talking about, and just to torment you a little, there’s going to be teasers as well!

New York Nights is the second standalone book in CJ Duggan’s HEART OF THE CITY series – a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.

Sarah Williams is a spirited, independent Aussie who has always dreamed of living in New York City. So when a job opportunity arises to become an au pair for a successful businessman in the heart of Manhattan, Sarah jumps at the chance, ready to embrace the Big Apple in all its brilliant well-lit glory. What she doesn’t bet on is Grace, the beautiful newborn she’ll be looking after, and Grace’s distant, abrasive father whose eyes hold a million anguished secrets. Determined to care for Grace and face the challenges of the impossible Ben Worthington, Sarah was always prepared to follow her heart; she just wasn’t prepared to lose it to a complicated man like Ben.

All The Books I Need in 2017: The Contemporary Edition

Posted January 26, 2017 by Hannah in uncategorized / 1 Comment

OH MY GOSH THERE ARE SO MANY CONTEMPORARY BOOKS IN 2017!!!

How am I supposed to read all the books when there are so many?! I need a holiday, stat! I didn’t realise it would be so hard to pick what I’m looking forward to the most. There’s the books that remind me of my favourite movies (You’ve Got Mail & Stranger Than Fiction), there’s books that sound so adorable that I want to eat them right up, there are books with ballet, with Antarctica (I KNOW!) and then there’s the creepy psychological thrillers I’m getting addicted to at the moment.

If one decided to live off contemporaries for the year, one would definitely have enough sustenance, for sure. And it’s because of that reason I’m not going to go into the books that I wanted to read in 2016, because otherwise we shall be here until 2020 – God Forbid!

Let me know down the bottom what you’re looking forward to reading the most – and are there any others I should definitely be putting on my list? As always, all images link to Goodreads – so go add them ASAP!

All The Books I Need in 2017: The SciFi Edition

Posted January 21, 2017 by Hannah in uncategorized / 3 Comments

Hey gorgeous people! I’m a bit behind on blogging right now (thanks, Mean Reds), but hopefully over the next couple of days I can get back into the swing of things, and what a better way to do so than to gush about more books I’m excited to read this year?!?

This time it’s Sci-Fi books, and to be honest, I’m never too sure exactly what SciFi means. What are the requirments? Does it mean space is the main setting? Does it mean it’s a dystopia? Or does it mean it’s set in the modern world but are there scientific elements that are considered as “fiction” because they are not the norm in current society? If you know, please tell me!! Anyway, of course, here are the books I want to read that come under the sci-fi bracket this year. As always, if you have any suggestions, tell me those as well! Links will take you to Goodreads.

Apparently I don’t have a lot of Sci-Fi on my 2017 list…this needs to be changed, stat!

 

Two other books I’m also excited for that don’t have covers are Contagion by Teri Terry, a fabulous #UKYA author who wrote the Shattered trilogy, and the debut novel This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada (who is an Aussie living in the US!).

Of course there’s always the books I didn’t read last year…
