Book Review: Sparrow Squadron by DL Jung | A Blog Tour Palooza, Flying Planes over Russia, and Fueling My Addiction for Anything and Everything World War II

Image
Today, I have a blog tour review for Sparrow Squadron by DL Jung. I have written a review to peak some of your interests, an introduction to Dl Jung and his work, and a giveaway, which has kindly been done through YA Bound Blog Tours and the author, for each of you to try your luck at. I hope you all enjoy; however, as I am probably getting your hopes up(as my reviews are always promised to be super good), I will begin...NOW!

World War II. June 1941. Hitler's war machine turns to the Soviet Union.

Escaping her hometown ahead of the Nazis, 16-year-old Aelya Makarova seizes a chance to live her dream. Obsessed with flying, she joins a women's fighter squadron to defend her homeland against the invaders. She'll go faster and higher than she's ever gone before.

But the harsh reality of Air Force life shatters her expectations and forces her to grow up fast. The squadron is split by petty rivalries, male pilots treat them like a joke, and the ideal country she thought she was…

Book Review: Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold by Iain Reading | Following Dreams by Forming a Friendship While Taking down Bad Guys Ft. Planes

After leaving her home in the western Canadian fishing village of Tofino to spend the summer in Alaska studying humpback whales Kitty finds herself caught up in an unforgettable adventure involving stolen gold, devious criminals, ghostly shipwrecks, and bone-chilling curses. Kitty's adventure begins with the lingering mystery of a sunken ship called the Clara Nevada and as the plot continues to unfold this spirited story will have armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike anxiously following every twist and turn as they are swept along through the history of the Klondike Gold Rush to a suspenseful final climatic chase across the rugged terrain of Canada's Yukon, the harsh land made famous in the stories and poems of such writers as Jack London, Robert Service and Pierre Berton. It is a riveting tale that brings to glorious life the landscape and history of Alaska's inside passage and Canada's Yukon, as Kitty is caught up in an epic mystery set against the backdro…

Blog Tour: Christy Sloat's The Archivist's Drop-Dead Gorgeous and Blinding Cover Reveal

Image
Hi everyone! I have abandoned my blog for a week. Yes, I do feel bad as I have so many book reviews to write for publicists and authors; however, I had some tests in school that I was nervous for and I was in a great reading mood. Although I
would love to sprout my emotions and the happenings of what has been occurring behind the scenes, I do have something
special to share with each and every one of you readers! Today, Christy Sloat and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the
cover for The Archivist, which releases May 28, 2018! AH! I cannot wait until this book comes out as the synopsis sounds so
good and the cover is drop-dead gorgeous, which is not the most important thing but it sure does help. Now, it's time to reveal
the cover and enter a fantastic giveaway, which ends March 16th!

The Archivist's official cover is...
See, I told you it is GORGEOUS. Why don't you ever believe me?

(Is it because I am an evil, word-bewitched book blogger who is also a vampire who lives off te…

Reading for 24 Hours TBR | #ReadathonByZoe and Finishing Some Books

#READATHONBYZOE'S 24 HOUR READATHON

Hello everyone! If you can tell by the title of this post, I am joining readbyzoe's 24 hour readthon. Now, it is time to see if I made a mistake before I continue with the idea that I intend to attendwin this twenty-four hour readathon.

First, in order to start this, I need to explain what a readathon is to those of you who may have looked at the title quizzically. A readathon, according to my brain at 11 p.m., is a time of celebration as one can read as much as they want in a certain amount of time allotted by the curator of said readathon. This readathon is curated by Zoe Hertz from readbyzoe on YouTube and she announced that on March 3rd, which is approaching in just a few hours, the readathon will begin. The time when your clock chimes twelve is the time to start.


Now, as I love charts and lists, I needed to have one ready for my goals and amount of times I would track my progress throughout the day and night.

As Zoe is completing so…

My Brother Chooses My March TBR (AKA Where I Curl into a Ball Due to My Fear of the Book God's Choices)

Image
First, this may be one of the hardest things I will ever do in my life. I do not even know if I can write this post because I am so scared.


This is literally me right now!
For the month of March, I have let my brother choose the books I am going to read. Ugh, I hate having someone in control of my reading choices; however, I thought this would be a fun thing to do. Also, it would get me out of my comfort zone. Also, just to ease my suffering, I am making my brother do this challenge too! Hehe!

However, does this mean I will stop reading Shadowhunters?
Nope. Never. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Another synonym for no.


Let's just jump into this torturous fun March TBR!
