Hey loves! So as you may or may not know, I’m OBSESSED with the book Harley in The Sky! Probably my most anticipated read for this year, and I got to read the ARC and I’m still sooooooo happy and overjoyed and pinching myself is this real that I got an early physical copy of the book I wanted to love, and ended up loving, so much???
I mean, I applied to be on the street team way back last summer or whatever, but I didn’t get on it, and I was devastated! But life went on. So a few months later, in December, I emailed the publicist and wrote basically a mini essay pouring out my soul over why I wanted it so much.
AND NOTHING. I was DEVASTATED! But then! Three weeks later I get a reply out of the blue that 10/10 made my day saying she was sending the book over!!!!!
AND NOW I’VE READ IT AND ITS AMAZING!!!!
I’ll definitely be posting a veerrrrry long review (I’ve already written it and I swear its like a ten page essay) raving about how much I love the book soon!
The multiracial rep (the main reason I wanted it)… is amazing. As a biracial person, I’ve never felt so understood, so heard, so loved.
Anyways. I also really really enjoyed the circus aspect of it. So when I saw that Jemma @ Fantastic Books created a Harley in the Sky/Circus tag, I was like YES I’M DOING THIS.
And here we are!
RingMaster – What book introduced you to your favourite genre?
Harry Potter // I honestly have zero idea. None. I’ve loved fantasy for my entire life, I can’t pinpoint what one book started it!! But, I also have loved Harry Potter for most my life, and was reading and loving it at a very young age, and it’s sort of a fantasy classic now, so I’ll put it!
Acrobatics – A fast-paced read.
Warrior of the Wild // I flew through this book in one sitting, just a few hours, and I loved it and absolutely couldn’t put it down the whole way through! There was so much action, character development, world building, everything, in just a few pages that I devoured!
Clowns – A book that made you laugh.
My Lady Jane // I don’t usually laugh out lout in books, but this is one exception!! It was hilarious I was laughing and enjoying myself so much as I read it! Would totally recommend whenever you need a smile 🙂
Knife thrower – A book that had you on the edge of your seat
Crooked Kingdom // I don’t think I breathed properly for the entire time I was reading Crooked Kingdom. There was so much stress over everything happening to my beloved characters GAH I just wanted them to not die is that too much to ask?? Needless to say, I was very much on the edge of my seat.
Tightrope Walker – A book you just couldn’t put down.
Winter // This book is a monster it’s an 800+ page beast of a book. With such a long book, you would think I would read it in more than one sitting… nope. I could not put this book down until I finished it and knew what happened.
Ventriloquist – A book with a great twist.
The Wicked King // This is the most twisty twister of a book I swear. I can’t even tell you it had “a” great twist–the entire book was just twist after twist after twist and I had no idea what was going on the whole time it was a wild ride
Magician – A book with a magic system you love.
Sorcery of Thorns // I mean, who wouldn’t love the magic system that is literally a magical library? Magical books? And also making contracts with soft cinnamon roll demons (well, they’re not all like that…but Silas is) in exchange for magic? I love it.
Static Trapeze – Best or Worst Cliffhanger.
This Cruel Design // The ending was just cruel. I’m so happy that This Vicious Cure is finally out so I can finally know what happened because that was crazy!!
