Heartstruck by Angeli E. Dumatol


Heartstruck by Angeli E. Dumatol

Publication Date: September 15, 2018

Genre: Young Adult Romance

[I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much, Flicker team!]

Blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Alexa Zamora looks as if she’s always been the beautiful and graceful center of attention. If you knew her in grade school though, you’d remember a sad little girl, who had lost her parents, and spent most of her time on the martial art arnis—a rough sport, not something girls were supposed to like. If you knew her then, you might have ostracized her for it.

She learned from this mistake, and has done her best to hide all traces of her sport and skill in a new school, and now she’s New Hope Academy’s It Girl. But transfer student Theo Guevarra, who happens to be her old arnis buddy and first love, arrives and makes her question the life she’s been living. How long can she keep up appearances, before it all falls apart?

[Blog Tour] A Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole


A Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole

Publication Date: July 31, 2018 by Avon Books

Genre: Romance

[I received an e-ARC for the blog tour. Special thanks to Pure Textuality PR and the publisher for the review copy!]

Amazon │Avon Romance│ Barnes & Noble │ Google Play iBooks

Blurb:

Award-winning author Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series continues with a woman on a quest to be the heroine of her own story and the duke in shining armor she rescues along the way…

New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.

Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice—and his attraction to her—but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.

Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?

[Blogger Interview] Vicky from Vicky Who Reads


Vicky is a teenage voracious reader, aspiring writer, book blogger (and bookstagrammer!), and artist. (She also likes talking about herself in third person.)

Although she wears a lot of hats (not literally, of course–she gets bad cases of hat-hair), she’s passionate about everything she does.​

She loves to write and is always ready to learn new things by constantly writing. Her mind is always filled with millions of story ideas, too many for her to ever be able to write them all.​

She is an avid reader, making sure to read anything she can get her hands on—whether it’s the back of a cereal box or the pages of a history textbook. She’s struggles most with logging all her books on Goodreads.​

She dabbles in graphic design in the formation of vector-imitation graphics. She’s always ready to experiment with new design programs and design types, and loves art, no matter what medium.

She is a blogger, always ready to write about her passions, whether it’s books she reviews or new design tips or fantasy world building. Blogging is where her passions come together to show the world who she is.

[Guest Post] JM Cabral on Reading Formats


Hi y’all! I’m JM and I’m the guy behind Book Freak Revelations. I’m also 1/3 of the Arctic Books team, and 1/4 of the team behind Bookworms Unite PH. I’ve been an avid reader for 10 years now, and a book blogger for almost 4. I’ve had my fair share of reading YA novels in different formats and so when my friend Fay asked me to come up with a post for Bibliophile Soprano about my experience with this, I was more than happy to say yes, and I’m elated to be featured and talk about whether I love to read books digitally, in print, or if I prefer to listen to audiobook programs instead.

[Blogger Interview] Fanna from Fannatality


Faguni Sharma, also known as Fanna, is a human being possessing the power of humanity. She started her life as an infant but soon grew up into an adult who is as confused about life as a newborn. Growing up, she couldn’t understand what to fill in those form headings that said ‘hobbies’. She loved to study; her mother had a huge role (and a stick) in her accomplishments as a straight-A student. She loved to write; her English teachers had nothing do with it. She loved to read, her cousin had a huge role (and a TBR pile) in it. She loved to make digital art, online communities had a role to play in it. She loved to live; everyone she has ever met has an important part in that.

Wondering where to pursue all her passions, she began wandering the streets of internet. The paint brushes always drew her to the canvas, the pencils always called her to the paper, the letters always drove her to the book and the love to be a human landed her into a pre-med course.

She then decided to set up a blog with a need to voice out her opinions in the most respectful manner. Which in turn led to F A N N A being set up in November 2017.

Apart from juggling all the things that make her happy, she is keen on loving things that she hates at first sight. For starters, talking about herself as a third person was one of her pet peeves but she’s currently more focused in finding the good in bad.

[Blogger Interview] Aimee from Aimee, Always


I must say that Aimee has become one of my favorite bloggers because she posts helpful content for bloggers and readers alike! Some of these include styling your book reviews, organizing your review copies (with a free spreadsheet!), and a survival kit for reading in public. She also has the most beautiful blog design I’ve ever seen. (Seriously, I’d save up to have her redesign my book blog. ♥)

Today we have her on the blog to share some things about herself, to talk about blogging, and to give some insights on book discrimination.
