Blog Tour: The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

Hi all! I wanna welcome you all to today's blog tour stop for The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis! 
Release Date: July 5, 2016 
Publisher: Crown Publishing 
Source: Publisher via Blog Tour 

In her debut novel THE WOLF ROAD, author and managing editor at London’s Titan Books Beth Lewis introduces us to a world decimated by an unnamed, apocalyptic event and inhabited by desperate people accustomed to hunting, tracking, and killing to survive. Among them is Elka, the young heroine whose unmistakable voice guides us through the untamed landscape of the area formerly known as British Columbia on her journey to escape the horrors of her own past. 


Everything Elka knows of the world she learned from the man she calls Trapper, a solitary hunter who took her under his wing when she was just seven years old. He has taught her how to shoot, track, set snares, and start fires—all the skills necessary to survive in a wild, lawless land where men are at the mercy of the elements and one another. But when wanted posters begin appearing in town, Elka realizes that the man she thinks she knows so well is harboring terrible secrets. The more Elka finds out about him, the less sure she becomes about her own identity—especially as she begins to recover some of the painful memories she’s kept at bay throughout her childhood. 

As the horrific facts emerge, Elka makes her escape, armed with nothing but her knife and the survival skills he’s taught her. She sets out in the hope of finding her true parents, who traveled to the frozen north years earlier in pursuit of gold, but Elka can tell by the shadows that follow her that Trapper’s on her trail—and he won’t be letting his little girl go without a fight. As she encounters physical hardships, violence, and loneliness that at times test her sanity, she also strains to distinguish between fact and fiction in her own recollections. Ultimately, she will have to turn and confront not just Trapper but the dark reality of her past. 

THE WOLF ROAD is a tautly suspenseful cat-and-mouse tale of justice and revenge, played out against a vast, unforgiving landscape—told by an unforgettable, tough-as-nails young heroine fighting desperately to escape the terrors of her childhood and rejoin humanity.

Love-a-Thon: An Invitation to Tea

Hosted by the fabulous Alexa of Alexa Love's Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit, Hazel of Stay Bookish and Mel of The Daily Prophecy!  

It's a tea party time! Something of note? I only like green tea. Being Indian, I'm used to making tea all the time for my family but I'm not a big fan. So in the spirit of the love-a-thon, I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone.

Love-a-Thon: Welcome!

Hosted by the fabulous Alexa of Alexa Love's Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit, Hazel of Stay Bookish and Mel of The Daily Prophecy!  

Hey all! It's so good to be back to blogging after such a while away! I've been wondering how to come back and the Love-a-Thon seemed liked the best time. For this first post, which is late as I was in an all day conference yesterday and I wasn't feeling well enough to post anything, I'm giving you guys a questionnaire!

Review: Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

           Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
Series: Wallflowers #4
Release Date: January 1, 2006
Publisher: Avon 
Source: Library 
After spending three London seasons searching for a husband, Daisy Bowman's father has told her in no uncertain terms that she must find a husband. Now. And if Daisy can't snare an appropriate suitor, she will marry the man he chooses—the ruthless and aloof Matthew Swift.

Daisy is horrified. A Bowman never admits defeat, and she decides to do whatever it takes to marry someone... anyone... other than Matthew. But she doesn't count on Matthew's unexpected charm... or the blazing sensuality that soon flares beyond both their control. And Daisy discovers that the man she has always hated just might turn out to be the man of her dreams.

But right at the moment of sweet surrender, a scandalous secret is uncovered... one that could destroy both Matthew and a love more passionate and irresistible than Daisy's wildest fantasies.
Oh Daisy, what do I do with you?! Even though Lillian and I are far more similar, I loved Daisy as well. She's just as fun and carrying as all the other Wallflowers but for her, it's hard to find her footing  with an older sister as vocal as Lillian. And unlike the three women before her, Daisy has yet to find a man among the English elite so her father gives her an ultimatum: if she can't find a husband, her father will find one for her. And he choose Matthew Swift, his protégé and the last man Daisy would EVER think to marry.

Review: Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas

           Devil in Winterby Lisa Kleypas
Series: Wallflowers #3
Release Date: October 13, 2009
Publisher: Avon 
Source: Library
A Devil's Bargain

Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!

Sebastian's reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden's good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.

But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts--which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions...or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.
So when I found out that Evie and Sebastian were going to be the main focus of the 3rd book in the Wallflowers, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it. Of the four women, Evie was the hardest one to get to know. Her shy nature made it hard to truly understand who she was as a character but I was still excited to see her story. And St. Vincent, y'all, was not a good guy in the last book so why Lisa Kleypas made him the love interest in this one blows my mind. However, there was nothing for me to fear because I loved Devil in Winter just as much as I loved the other books in the series thus far.

Review: Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler

           Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
Release Date: November 17, 2015 
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary  
Source: Beta Reader for Author/ARC
Reagan Forrester wants out—out of her trailer park, out of reach of her freeloading mother, and out of the shadow of the relationship that made her the pariah of Charytan, Kansas.

Victoria Reyes wants in—in to a fashion design program, in to the arms of a cute guy who doesn't go to Charytan High, and in to a city where she won't stand out for being Mexican.

One thing the polar-opposite best friends do agree on is that wherever they go, they’re staying together. But when they set off on a series of college visits at the start of their senior year, they quickly see that the future doesn’t look quite like they expected. After two years of near-solitude following the betrayal of the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart, Reagan falls hard and fast for a Battlestar Galactica-loving, brilliant smile-sporting pre-med prospective... only to learn she's set herself up for heartbreak all over again. Meanwhile, Victoria runs full-speed toward all the things she thinks she wants… only to realize everything she’s looking for might be in the very place they've sworn to leave.

As both Reagan and Victoria struggle to learn who they are and what they want in the present, they discover just how much they don't know about each other's pasts. And when each learns what the other’s been hiding, they'll have to decide whether their friendship has a future.
Y'all, when I was given the chance to Beta read this novel for Dahlia, I was so excited. Not only did it sound fabulous but it had an Indian love interest (YASSSS--also how I got to Beta; I'm all about accurate representation). Just Visiting was my first  book by Dahia Adler and it won't be the last. Probably one of the best YA bridge books I've read in a long time--the bridge between high school and college--Just Visiting is all about that time in our lives where we have to make life altering decisions.

In January I Resolve To...

I thought long and hard about making a resolutions list this year and I decided that this year, I wouldn't create one. But I love lists and making goals so I'm going to create a goals post for every month. This isn't like a TBR though! It won't be specific books I want to read or anything. I'm too much of a mood reader for that. Instead, it's going to be a small list of goals I want in each of the categories below that I want to accomplish in that month. I'll be updating this post at the end of the month with everything that has been done!
