Synopsis:
Kira Fujikawa has always been a girl on the fringe. Bullied by her peers and ignored by her parents, the only place Kira’s ever felt at home is at her grandfather’s Shinto shrine, where she trains to be a priestess.

But Kira’s life is shattered on the night her family’s shrine is attacked by a vicious band of yokai demons. With the help of Shiro—the shrine’s gorgeous half-fox, half-boy kitsune—Kira discovers that her shrine harbors an ancient artifact of great power . . . one the yokai and their demon lord, Shuten-doji, will use to bring down an everlasting darkness upon the world.

Unable to face the Shuten-doji and his minions on her own, Kira enlists the aid of seven ruthless shinigami—or death gods—to help stop the brutal destruction of humankind. But some of the death gods aren’t everything they initially seemed, nor as loyal to Kira’s cause as they first appeared.

With war drawing nearer by the day, Kira realizes that if this unlikely band of heroes is going to survive, they’re going to have to learn to work together, confront their demons, and rise as one to face an army of unimaginable evil.


[Cover Reveal] WINDSWEPT by Gwen Cole!!! + GIVEAWAY!


Hello!!!

I'm so excited to give some love to WINDSWEPT by Gwen Cole today! This book sounds so interesting and I'm very intrigued as to what will happen for the characters in this book!



Here's the cover!




Every day, Sam endures the same, old subway ride on her way to school, but when she meets a boy named Reid, suddenly her daily commute isn’t so ordinary. Reid has the ability to teleport—or, drift—as he calls it, and for the first time, Sam has the opportunity to see other countries without a passport or plane ticket.

But as their two worlds come together, Sam soon realizes her family has secrets she never knew about, and meeting Reid might have been more than coincidence. For years, there’s been a secret bloody feud between drifters and sliders—two groups of people with different abilities and, at the center of it all, Sam’s own parents, who are now missing in action.

When Sam manifests her own ability, she finds herself in the middle of danger and captured by the people who have also been hunting for her parents. With Reid’s life suddenly in danger because of her, Sam has to figure a way to stop the ongoing war between the families before it costs Reid his life.

Cover Reveal Time!!!!! Scammed by Kristen Simmons (The Vale Hall #2)


Oh HI!!!

Have you read The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons yet??

If you haven't, here's a little primer on the first book:


The Deceivers

Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.

When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.

At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials—because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark—a senator’s son—and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

Are you ready to see the cover for SCAMMED???

It's just a little bit further down. ;)

























Look!!!!!

Here's the synopsis:

In Kristen Simmons's young adult thriller Scammed, the stakes are higher. The cons are riskier. And nothing is what you think it is.

Brynn Hilder is living a life she never dreamed possible: She lives in a mansion, getting a top-rate education at Vale Hall. She has friends and an almost-boyfriend. Anything she wants, she can have.

The only catch? To stay in this life, she has to help the director of Vale Hall take down the bad guys of Sikawa City by collecting secrets and running cons.

Getting everything she wants and fighting evil doesn’t seem like such a bad deal. The thing is, she’s not so convinced anymore that Dr. Odin is really going after bad people after all. And the friends and almost-boyfriend that have made her life so different are all liars and con artists—so can she trust that any of it is real?

SCAMMED releases February 4th 2020 and you can find the Goodreads page here!!
