hiiii guys! i’m so excited to be able to finally share this news! writing this book was like penning a love letter to all my favorite childhood stories; it’s an overdue acknowledgment that, for me, middle-grade fiction is where the real magic began: in a secret garden; a wardrobe; a cupboard under the stairs. it’s the most fun i’ve ever had writing a novel, and i can’t wait to share it with everyone.
and don’t worry — this doesn’t mean i’m done with young adult novels! there’s still so much more to come! <333
but until then — a little more about FURTHERMORE?Once upon a time, a girl was born. It was rather uneventful.Her parents were happy enough: the mother glad to be done carrying it; the father glad to be done with the mystery of it all. But then one day they realized that their baby, the one they’d named Alice, had no pigment at all. Her hair and skin were white as milk, her heart and bones as soft as silk. Her eyes alone had been spared a spot of color: only just clinging to the faintest shade of honey. It was the kind of child her world could not appreciate.Ferenwood had been built on color. Bursts of it, swaths of it, depths and breadths of it. Its people were known to be the brightest — modeled after the planets, they’d said — and young Alice was deemed simply too dim, even though she knew she was not.Once upon a time, a girl was forgot.Twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow has only three things in the world that matter: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; triplet brothers, who never knew her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him, so some said he’d gone to measure the sea. Others said the sky. The moon. Maybe he’d learned to fly and had forgotten how to come back down. But it’s been almost six years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other. No matter the cost.It’s a kind of fairytale, a story where magic is a must, adventure is inevitable, and friendship is found in the most unexpected places.i really hope you like it!
hugs and hugs,
Momentum Books is publishing Adina West’s Dark Child series as serialised novels. In 2013 they published the first book, The Awakening, as a 5 part serial, and are doing the same with the sequel: Coven’s Rising. I wish I’d read up on the series more carefully, because the titles on Netgalley and Goodreads are confusing. It doesn’t help that the books are called Dark Child (The Awakening): Episode…

HOW COOL IS THIS MARKETING?!?! Like the rebels are hacking into the capitol’s twitter!!!!
Disclaimer: I haven’t read the House of Night series. I’ve never been inclined to pick it up, but I was sent this novella for review, and I thought it would be the perfect way for me to see if this world and its characters are something I’d be interested reading about. I want to make this clear: I went into this novella wanting to love it.
P.C Cast and Kristin Cast have been writing full length…
The world of Abercrombie’s The First Law is famous for its grit and darkness, and I know that many fans were a bit worried when he announced that he’s writing a YA novel set in a whole new world. I don’t know why they were worried – Abercrombie proves that he is a skilled and adaptable writer with Half a King, and I think the Shattered Sea novels will be a favourite with varied audiences.
I always approach the last book of any series with some caution. After all, this book will be how I remember the series for a long time to come. So I’m happy to say that Ruin and Rising is a fitting and brilliantly crafted conclusion to the Grisha trilogy, one that fans will be sighing over happily for years to come.
Much of the YA fantasy that I’ve read tends to focus more on the romances in the…
