Cover Reveal: Stake Sauce Arc 1: The Secret Ingredient is Love, No, Really! By RoAnna Sylver

Hi, Beautifuls!

Today I’m helping reveal the cover for a book I am so excited for because I have an insatiable love for vampires… which I haven’t really given any attention to… if you don’t count how many times I’ve seen “What We Do In The Shadows.”


It’s a fun, creepy, and dark-but-hopeful serial about queer punk vampires and the humans who love them, from RoAnna Sylver, author of the CHAMELEON MOON series.

STAKE SAUCE releases October 31st, 2017 from The Kraken Collective!

Check out the cover and learn more below – including how to pre-order and get a free short story, and exclusive bonus content! Continue reading


Book Tag: Seasons of Book Blogging

img_3776Hi, beautifuls! It’s another Tag Tuesday…

That’s definitely not a thing but your pal here loves making a big deal out of… everything. I got another book tag for y’all which was really fun to do because I tried to use books I’ve read in 2016!

This is a very fun tag which, again, I found at Fadwa’s blog. It is essentially created by J @ J.Bookish Per usual, please check out Fadwa’s post because again: she’s awesome and I love her.

The Rules:

  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
    Have fun, of course!

As I said, I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but this seemed like a really good tag to do because seasons/months determine my liking for a book since it creates memories and such! Also, since I am not tagged, I’ll start with October since it’s when I’m doing it. Continue reading

First Lines Fridays 🌱1

35dd59f5-d7aa-4476-bc1f-812b15e36716Hello, Beautifuls 🐋

Today’s post is something I… truly am helpless about doing but since I’m looking for a routine: I’m attempting it.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  1. Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  2. Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  3. Finally… reveal the book!


Gina Morales clutched the edge of her seat in a white-knuckled grip and prayed for a winter Olympian. A skier would be good, or a snowboarder, or better yet, a figure skater. Olympians were the holy grail of partners. If one of those awaited her when she landed, this whole harrowing journey would be worth it. Besides, what other kind of celebrity would be hanging out in the uncharted Alaskan wilderness?

And the book is…

LIST: September Wrap Up

img_3754Hello Beautifuls!

A Little Life Update

I turned 22 in September! I love love Virgo season and ever since the end of August settled upon me and until Virgo season ended, I’d been in a great mood. I like to say it remained but I didn’t have the luxury~

Anyway, I had a relatively quiet month although many things happened. The Hijri New Year, for example, which is a big deal to me because I’m Shi’a Muslim. I went back to uni, too, for my last semester. I am very scared and excited for it but I hope it’ll be good and uneventful.

Quite a lot of discourse happened on Twitter this month too, which hurt. But, hopefully, it all is for a good reason.

Enough talking, let’s brag about this month’s reading progress.
