Cover Reveal: Guardian of Secrets (Library Jumpers #2) by Brenda Drake!



I'm so excited to bring you guys the cover of Guardian of Secrets today! This novel is the sequel to Thief of Lies, and you can find my review here.

This cover reveal is brought to you by Entangled Teen and YA Interrobang!

Here are Brenda's thoughts on the cover:

I had an idea of what I wanted the cover of Guardian of Secrets to look like the entire time I was writing the story. I was delighted (I might have screamed) when the cover showed up in my email and it was EXACTLY what I’d imagined. I love that it’s blue since part of the setting of the book takes place in a cold climate. I’m thrilled the couple is on it, too. They resemble the characters I’ve created in my mind perfectly. The cover is so beautiful, and I’m beyond excited to share it with everyone!

So are you guys ready to see the cover??




Scroll down to see the beautiful cover!




















Synopsis:

Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.

Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Release Date: February 7th 2017

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).




Happy Reading!

So while thanksgiving for me has been over for a while now, Mishma of Chasing Faerytales and Hazel of Stay Bookish are hosting a celebration of thanks and thanksgiving across the bookish community. You can read more about it here.

I've already made a series of tweets yesterday in which I thanked everybody as a whole.





However, I'd like to take the time to thank the individuals that hold a special place in my heart.

To  Dana of DanaSquare, Rachel of A Perfection Called Books, Drew of Endlessly Reading, Genissa of A Story Diary, Amber and Jess of The Book Bratz and Pili of In Love with Handmade

You lot are the first blogging friends I made when I first started out (and also coincidentally all part of the Styclar Street Team). For the first time I felt like I belonged in this virtual community and not an outsider anymore. Thank you.

To Shelly of Read Sleep Repeat

I have the fortune of calling you my friend both online and in real life. I'm thankful for you and our lengthy conversations about books, the world, etc. And also thank you for lending me your books. 

To Cookie of BiscottoBooks

You're my book twin and a fellow lipstick enthusiast. I'm thankful for you and the enthusiasm you have for books even before you were a blogger. I hope to meet you irl some day. <3

Like I said earlier, this post is mostly to give a more detailed thanks to those who I'm especially grateful for. However, I'm grateful for all of you, authors, bloggers, friends and you, the readers. Thank you for reading my blog. Thank you for indulging me and reading my ramblings about books and the like. Thank you. I started this blog halfway into my last year of high school and now I'm halfway through my third year of university. I've grown and learned a lot and here's to many more years of personal growth and learning.


<3 Thanks,

[Review] The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

ABOUT

Title: The Diabolic
Author: S.J. Kincaid 
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers 
Release Date: November 1st 2016 

Synopsis:
A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for.

Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe.

When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.

As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire
