Welcome back to another cover reveal brought to you by the lovely Parliament House Press. They send me so many amazing books and covers to review, and I’m trying to present them all to you in a timely manner. Sometimes the day gets away from me or I’m working. Thank goodness for a day off and being on overnight shift for a couple weeks.
This book I can say is definitely a work of beauty. Wings are a favorite of mine on covers, along with beautiful fae boys!!!!
The Hollow Gods By A.J Vrana will be released June of 2020! Wow! So many awesome indie authors are coming out with books this summer. You guys are going to make me broke. It’s for the good of book love at least!
Without further ado, I’d love to share a little excerpt with you guys so you can get a feel for the book itself.
“Black Hollow is a town with a dark secret.
For centuries, residents have foretold the return of the Dreamwalker—an ominous figure from local folklore said to lure young women into the woods and possess them. Yet the boundary between fact and fable is blurred by a troubling statistic: occasionally, women do go missing. And after they return, they almost always end up dead.
When Kai wakes up next to the lifeless body of a recently missing girl, his memory blank, he struggles to clear his already threadbare conscience.
Miya, a floundering university student, experiences signs that she may be the Dreamwalker’s next victim. Can she trust Kai as their paths collide, or does he herald her demise?
And after losing a young patient, crestfallen oncologist, Mason, embarks on a quest to debunk the town’s superstitions, only to find his sanity tested.
A maelstrom of ancient grudges, forgotten traumas, and deadly secrets loom in the foggy forests of Black Hollow. Can three unlikely heroes put aside their fears and unite to confront a centuries-old evil? Will they uncover the truth behind the fable, or will the cycle repeat? “
In the near future, you can find the book for preorder here
! Make sure to add it to your Goodreads TBRs if you are interested in it. I know a few friends of mine who might want to get their hands on it!
With the amazingness of Parliament Press House, I’m so excited to reveal the cover of a book that I’ve been waiting MONTHS for.. Chantal knows how excited and how patient I’m being for the 2nd book in her series about Hades and Persephone! Without further ado…*please insert drumroll here*
My levels of excitement for this cover reveal are through the roof. It just means that we are getting closer to being able to hold the book in our hands. I first started this series when I was accepted to listen to Blinding Night on audio. I immediately fell in love with Darce and Summer the second they were introduced. If you are into a modern take on a Greek Mythology love story, give Blinding Nights a read or a listen. Below this, I will leave some links to both books. Don’t forget to add Gilded Ruins By Chantal Gadoury to your Goodreads lists.
Happy Reading xx

After my little bit of a hiatus and working on a previous blog, I’m glad to be back with you guys! Of course, I come bearing wonderful gifts of a cover reveal from an amazing indie author. Thank you so much Parliament Press for giving me all these wonderful opportunities to work with Brianna Sugalski and many others. Below this picture I would like to share with all of you, a small blurb from her book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Please add it to your TBRs on Goodreads (link at the end of my post) if you enjoy it. Preorder your copies today because we all know how much preorders help out an author.
Disenchanted By Brianna Sugalski will be released on March 10th 2020!
“Centuries ago, the flames of a terrible war engulfed the sprawling wildwood of Brittany, displacing hoards of monsters in its wake. These beasts fled to the remaining patches of forest, the largest known as Brocèliande—home to the elusive Fae, and within unsettling proximity to the mortal kingdom.
A Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance, Lilac lives prisoner in her parents’ castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soirée. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst… Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever.
Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Brocéliande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger—and unsolicited help of the gregarious stranger who inserts himself on her quest—she must traverse Brocèliande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch.
This is the story of a cursed princess,
A crestfallen killer,
The town that wants them to burn,
And the witch that can save them both.

I finished reading 13 Reasons Why By Jay Asher about a week ago. I have it a 5 out of 5 stars.
Here is a review by Emily: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2013424440
If you are a fan of dystopian novels set in a new world, then M.C. Frank’s No Ordinary Star series is perfect for you!
If you are a fan of Star Wars style fighting, soldiers, hot romances, and a good Christmas feel in a world where Christmas doesn’t exist and kissing is forbidden. Then this is the book for you
Details are below on how you can get your hands on one of 5 copies of M.C Frank’s No Vain Loss!
A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn’t known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
This is the One World.
The year is 2524.
Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic young adult novel in three parts is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.
Written in three parts, this is the breathtaking story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time.
In No Vain Loss, the world is on the brink of the greatest war humanity has ever known. Lives will be lost. New truths will be revealed.
Preorder the kindle for .99 here: http://amzn.to/2gNO7zi and send M.C. Frank a screencap of your receipt/confirmation.
You will be automatically entered to win one of 5 signed paperback copies!

One of the first books that I finished reading in the month of July was Afterworlds By Scott Westerfeld. I loved Darcy, she reminded me of a younger version of myself so, I wanted to write a letter to her. Short, sweet, and to the point. Just the way I would like it!
You are about to endure the joys and downfalls of being a new YA author. Enjoy it and don’t stress too much about it. I may not know what it’s like to be an author but, I one day wish to be in your shoes. There was a time in my younger life when I dreamed of faeries, elves, and vampires. All in one world together. Those were the days of my younger self. (I’m 25, it’s not like I’m super old or something haha). Living the life of a wannabe fantasy writer as a middle school student was what I was all about. Right now, I struggle to even find a new idea for a new book to work on, it feels as if my brain can’t focus on anything new. One day though, it will hit me like a ton of bricks…I just know it. Enjoy New York, enjoy the book tours, and never give up on your dreams.
I had so much fun doing this week long blog challenge, I’m hoping that it will help break me out of my shell but, also help to improve all of my writing skills that I know I’ve lost over the years. From here on out, it will be book reviews as I finish books. I’m going to try and find some new challenges to do. Maybe try my hands at some writing prompts too. Who knows…
Happy Reading, Emily
