Book Blitz - Dimension Drift {Dimension Drift Worlds #1} By Christina Bauer {Review & Giveaway!}

Title: Dimension Drift

{Dimension Drift Worlds #1}

Author: Christina Bauer

Publication Date: April 24th, 2018

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Dystopian
“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t miss Dimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker

Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.

On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that the government likes to kill people like me. Whatever. I’m not worried; hiding from their detection systems is easy for me.

Then I screw up one of my illegal projects. Badly.

In fact, things go so sideways that my house slips into two-dimensional space-time. The shift only lasts for a few seconds, but that’s long enough to set off a dozen government alarms. If those goons track me down, Mom and I are as good as dead. Long story short, I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe.

Unfortunately, that means asking the Scythe for help. He runs the local underground crime scene and has absolutely no conscience…Or at least, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. It’s hard to think straight when a guy’s that hot in an ‘evil Mafioso kingpin’ kind of way. Most importantly, the Scythe is a crime lord who can conceal my slip-up with a few clicks on his minion’s computer keyboards. But the man has his price. In this case, the Scythe wants me to finish a certain dimensional prototype for him in twenty-four hours. I can do it, but it might mean Learning Squirrel High gets blown up in the process. Oh yes, and there’s also my new hot classmate who may or may not be an alien…and he says he’ll do anything to help me.

This job won’t be easy, but I’ve gotten out of worse scrapes. Maybe.

Monthly Blog Wrap Up {March 2018 Edition!}

Hello guys and welcome to an extremely belated March wrap up! I've been awful at keeping up with posts these past couple of weeks because I didn't manage to schedule anything even though I knew it'd be a busy month for me! I'm definitely a last minute person but, I do try to schedule some posts because it makes life so much easier! Unfortunately, the last weeks of March and the first weeks of April have been pretty hectic and I had so many other things I wanted to post that, I couldn't find an empty spot for the wrap up! I was also unable to host a Giveaway for April but, I'm going to try and plan one for next month! I've just contacted the winner of my previous Giveaway so, stay tuned for more to come!

Make sure to let me know how many books you've managed to read during the month of March and whether it was as productive as you'd thought it'd be! Also, don't forget to follow me on Instagram for bookish updates! I'm extremely glad for taking a bunch of pictures beforehand and not having to stress about that as well! Definitely going to keep doing that in the future!

Elena Reviews: Falling Into Place By Amy Zhang

Title: Falling Into Place

Author: Amy Zhang

Publication Date: September 2014

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary
Inertia, force, mass, gravity, velocity, acceleration... cause and effect.

Liz Emerson doesn't understand any of it.

But I do.

I understand how we fall. Where we fall. Why we fall.

I understand her sadness and loneliness and silence, her shattered heart.

It doesn't have to be this way, does it?

It wasn't always this way, was it?

Stay alive, Liz Emerson, stay alive.

On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton's laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road. Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? The nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High's most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn't understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn't understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang's haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

Blog Tour - Risen {Blood Eternal #1} By Cole Gibsen {Review & Giveaway!}

Title: Risen

{Blood Eternal #1} 

 Author: Cole Gibsen

Publication Date: March 27th, 2018

Genres: Young Adult, Paranormal
Fans of Vampire Diaries and Twilight will be thirsting for this latest vampire addiction…

My aunt has been kidnapped by vampires, and it’s up to me to save her. Only…I had no idea vampires existed. None. Nada. I’m more of a reader than a fighter, and even though I’d been wishing to escape my boring existence in the middle of nowhere, I’d give anything to have it back now if it meant my aunt was safe. 

Then there’s the vampire Sebastian, who seems slightly nicer than most of the bloodsuckers I’ve run into so far. Yes, he’s the hottest being I’ve ever come across, but there’s no way I can trust him. He swears he’s helping me get answers, but there’s more to his story. Now I’m a key pawn in a raging vampire war, and I need to pick the right ally.

But my chances of surviving this war are slim at best, when the side I choose might be the one that wants me dead the most.
