GIVEAWAY: Here We Are: Feminism For The Real World & Boss Babes | Int’l Women’s Day

Hi all, happy International Women’s Day! Happy Women’s History Month! I’m so delighted today to be hosting a special giveaway of two amazing, girl-centric, feminist books: Here We Are: Feminism For the Real World edited by Kelly Jensen, and Boss Babes: A Coloring & Activity Book for Grown-Ups by Michelle Volansky! A little background on this giveaway: As a lot of you know, I’m a feminist and a strong supporter of equality. It’s been deeply disturbing to see what’s going on in the US with regards to President Trump and women’s rights. And it’s even scarier to see how threads of misogyny, prejudice, […]

[UPDATED] What To Read If You Don’t Like Fantasy | Lady Midnight Giveaway [Closed]

Hi guys, today I’m discussing fantasy reads for contemporary readers – and I’ve got a giveaway of a special early edition of Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (I KNOW)! Keep reading for more! So last week, I was having dinner with a couple of book bloggers, all of whom love and read fantasy and speculative fiction much more than I do. And I, being the dissenter, said what I always say when confronted with this issue: “I’ve tried to love fantasy books, but I’ve failed.” It’s true. Fantasy – mostly YA fantasy – doesn’t seem to work for me. As […]

GIVEAWAY + Interview with We All Looked Up Author Tommy Wallach!

Hi guys! Today I have something very special for you: an interview with author Tommy Wallach on his recent debut, We All Looked Up, about an asteroid that is about to hit Earth and four teens who try to deal with what that means to them and the world. If you read my review, you know that I loved WALU, and I felt like I learned a ton just from reading it – partly because the very concept of death and annihilation scare me and I needed to hear from others who felt the same way as I did. After […]
