Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval…beware of getting swept too far away.
I am so excited for October...changing leaves, cool weather, and not to mention new book releases! There are a bunch of books that I am (not-so-patiently) waiting to be released this month (Because aren't we all? Just give me the books already! ALL THE BOOKS!). I am also excited to learn what you guys are looking forward to, so be sure to let me know in the comments!
Far from the Tree, by: Robin Benway
And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him.
This book is definitely not something I would typically go for, but I am actually very excited to see how it is received by the book community. After doing a bit of research on the author, I saw that she is also the author of Emmy & Oliver, which I haven't read, but remember hearing good things about it when it came out. (I also am IN LOVE with this cover. It's like fall threw up all over it.) Overall, I don't know a whole lot about this book, so if you have any more insight about it, I would love to hear from you!
been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.
instructions designed to push Lottie out of her comfort zone. Soon, Lottie’s trying some writing of her own, leaping off cliffs, and even falling for a boy she’s only just met. Then the letters reveal an extraordinary secret about the inspiration for the Alvin Hatter series. Lottie finds herself faced with an impossible choice, one that will force her to confront her greatest fear once and for all.
So Many Books!
I can't believe that September is almost here! School has arrived, which means new adventures, new things to learn, and, most importantly, new books to read! Be sure to let me know which book you are most looking forward to this month.
They Both Die at the End, by: Adam Silvera
I haven't ever read an Adam Silvera book before, but I have been meaning to for a while, and this one sounds so interesting. The concept of Death being a character in any story always appeals to me for some reason, and the take that this book sounds like it is going to take on Death sounds very unique. I also love the way this book gives off the "life's next great adventure" vibe, and I can't wait to see where it leads.
1-2 Star Books
This past week has been a little crazy for me. Next week school starts, so everything has resumed at once, which hasn't allowed me to post anything blog related this past week. (No need to fear though. Once school starts, I will have a solid scheduling base around which to plan my posts.) The point is that I've had a bit of time to reflect on my blog and realized something strange. I haven't read a single book below three stars since March of 2016. That was before my blogging days. And since that two star book, I hadn't read one below three since April of 2015. (I'm looking at you, The Kill Order.)
As you can imagine, upon this realization, I started to panic. Do my readers think I don't ever read a bad book? Am I too nice with the books I read and review? Why do all the book I read end up being my favorite? And with these questions came some very surprising answers...

Carnation: your prettiest book // These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
This was one of the first young adult books I fell in love with and fell hard. I read it back in middle school and still recommend it every chance I get!
Baby's Breath: a childhood favorite // The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards
I highly recommend this book. I don't ever see people mention it, which is really sad because this book was the best book that I read in elementary school by far. I am really hoping to get a reread in here soon, so I can properly recommend it.
Peony: favorite romance book // Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Tulip: a cozy winter read // My True Love Gave to Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins
