#BTAT2018 is here, and I am so excited to be able to participate again this year! If you haven’t heard of the BookTube-A-Thon before (umm, where have you been? You’ve been missing out on so much bookish fun!), it’s a week-long read-a-thon* hosted by the fabulous Ariel Bissett on YouTube. It initially started out on BookTube but has made its way out into the bookish Twitter and Instagram communities. Challenges are created, sprints take place, prizes are given, and fun is had! If you want to learn more about all the ways you can join, watch the video and go check out @BookTubeAThon on all your social media!

powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.
Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?
