Blog Tour: Game On: 15 Stories of Wins, Loses, and Everything in Between

Book Info:

Game On: 15 Stories of Wins, Losses, and Everything in Between Edited by Laura Silverman

Genre: Young Adult Anthology

Publishing Date: January 18, 2022

Synopsis:

A charming and inclusive YA anthology all about games–from athletic sports to board games to virtual reality–from editor Laura Silverman and an all-star cast of contributors.

From the slightly fantastical to the utterly real, light and sweet romance to tales tinged with horror and thrills, Game On is an anthology that spans genre and style. But beneath each story is a loving ode to competition and games perfect for anyone who has ever played a sport or a board game, picked up a video game controller, or rolled a twenty-sided die.

A manhunt game is interrupted by a town disappearing beneath the players’ eyes. A puzzle-filled scavenger hunt emboldens one college freshman to be brave with the boy she’s crushing on. A series of summer nights full of card games leads a boy to fall for a boy who he knows is taken. And a spin the bottle game could end a life-long friendship.

Fifteen stories, and fifteen unforgettable experiences that may inspire readers to start up that Settlers of Catan game again.

Thank you TBR & Beyond Tours for having me on, follow the schedule for the tour here.

I don’t particularly watch sports but seeing the authors involved, I knew I wanted to read it. One of my favorite things about this anthology is how the genre ranges within all these stories. Another aspect that I loved is how it gave the author an opportunity to bring diversity to the story in their own way. Overall, I just expected sports to be involved but even the theme ranges from video games, boardgames and even a murder mystery! Not only do we have this range within the theme but it also including discussions such as racism, sexism and self harm too. If you would like an anthology with diversity and a range within the theme, you’ll love this anthology.

Hiding in the Smoke

Sofia
One night.
No cuddling.
No sleepovers.
These are the rules I live my love life by. Running a business as a bar owner leaves no time for relationships—or their drama. But when I meet international rock star Brenner Reindhart, he makes me want to break all the rules . . .

Bren
Keeping Industrial November at the top of the best-selling charts for over eight years has taken a toll on me, and I’m ready to slow down.
I’ve been burned by love before, and I’m finally ready to try again. I think Sofia Ocampo might just be the one. Only, she has no plans to ever be in a relationship.
Aware she has no interest in it, I still give her my heart.
I can only hold my breath and hope she won’t break it.

Sofia is a bar owner, she meets Bren, he’s the lead singer of Industrial November. I really tend to enjoy books in which the celebrity falls for the person that isn’t a fan or doesn’t know who they are, this was no exception. Their relationship was so enjoyable with the passion they have for each other, always finding their way back to one another. If you’re into steamy romance especially involving a rock star, this is the book for you!

The Art of Running Away by Sabrina Kleckner

Genre: Middle Grade Contemporary

Publishing Date: November 16, 2021

Synopsis:

Twelve-year-old Maisie is an artist. When she’s in front of her sketchbook or apprenticing at Glenna’s Portraits, the family-run art shop her grandmother started, the world makes sense. She doesn’t think about Calum, her brother who mysteriously left home and cut ties with her family six years ago, or her parents’ insistence that she “broaden her horizons” and try something new—something that isn’t art.

But when Glenna’s Portraits falls on hard times, Maisie’s plan to take over the shop when she’s older and become a lifelong artist starts to crumble. In desperation to make things right, Maisie runs away to London to reconnect with her adult brother, hoping he might be the key to saving the shop. But as Maisie learns about her family’s past from Calum, she starts to rethink everything she’s ever known. Maisie must decide not only if saving her family’s art shop is worth it, but if she can forgive her parents for the mistakes they’ve made.

I loved this book, very well written and giving the audience a very good message which is how to be an ally. The book gives us a topic/theme that isn’t just for a middle grade audience, anyone can and should a read book with such an important message. Another important message we get through this book is that relationships can be difficult and challenging which gives the audience a very real message about life and family.

Blog Tour: Partner Pursuit by Kathy Strobos

Partner Pursuit

When a workaholic lawyer meets a fun-loving music marketing executive for opposites attract, friends-to-lovers adventures, which partnership will she choose?

Workaholic lawyer Audrey Willems is not going to take any chances with her bid to become a partner at her New York law firm—especially with only six months until the decision. 

Until she bumps into Jake—her new neighbor. Jake is a fun-loving music marketing executive who might just be The One.

He’s funny, caring, supportive—and able to kill water bugs in the bathroom.

But Jake will never date a woman married to her job. His father was a workaholic lawyer who never had time for family. 

And she’s just got the case of a lifetime—the one she needs to win to make partner.  Working 24/7 at the office may not even be enough hours to pull off a victory.

If only she had not met him now.

Audrey is determined to prove that she can juggle work and romance—even if managing court cases, candlelit dinners, and bike rides around Manhattan is a lot harder than it looks.  She keeps canceling dates for yet another case crisis.

But when making partner is like a game of musical chairs and the last seat is a business-class alone, which partnership will she choose?

What can I say? Aside from Sci Fi and Fantasy, I love reading rom coms. Audrey is career oriented, a lawyer and running for partner. Due to her career, her love life is non existent that is… until Jake arrives. Jake’s arrival causes Audrey to make some difficult decision especially concerning her career. So now, is she willing to risk her career for love? Definitely worth the read!

Hello everyone! Thank you TBR & Beyond Tours for having me on this tour, please check out the rest of it here.

I really enjoyed how I could relate to Mary as I was the same way in high school. I was the kind of student that turned in every assignment and I never wanted to miss any and I hated myself when I forgot one if I did, I felt humiliated so even starting the book, I could see myself in her position.

I also loved the short chapters as well, made me realize how much I read at the end. I could connect a lot to Mary especially when it comes to my high school experience and the changes I experienced transitioning from high school to the real world.

Book Info:

Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Publishing Date: November 2, 2021

Synopsis:

An unforgettable fantasy debut inspired by West African mythology, this is Children of Blood and Bone meets The Little Mermaid, in which a mermaid takes on the gods themselves.

A way to survive.
A way to serve.
A way to save.

Simi prayed to the gods, once. Now she serves them as Mami Wata–a mermaid–collecting the souls of those who die at sea and blessing their journeys back home.

But when a living boy is thrown overboard, Simi does the unthinkable–she saves his life, going against an ancient decree. And punishment awaits those who dare to defy it.

To protect the other Mami Wata, Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends. But all is not as it seems. There’s the boy she rescued, who knows more than he should. And something is shadowing Simi, something that would rather see her fail. . . .

Danger lurks at every turn, and as Simi draws closer, she must brave vengeful gods, treacherous lands, and legendary creatures. Because if she doesn’t, then she risks not only the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it.

Trigger Warning: enslavement, suicide

Simi’s job as a mermaid to take those taken to the sea, catch them and help their souls transport from their human life to the afterlife. Simi was given a second chance at her life but as a mermaid to do this job, however, she has memories from her human life. With her job, she can only transfer these souls, she cannot interfere in that process but Simi saves a young boy. I liked that this wasn’t the typical mermaid story we read about, this one included a more dark fantasy feel to it. It was interesting to read how the slavery was connected to this overall story.

SYNOPSIS:

All Scarlet Bridge wants is to get through her last year of school, overcome her brother’s shadowy legacy, and win the prized scholarship for college. She’s not about to let anyone stand in her way, not even everyone’s favorite Golden Boy, Levi Henare.

Levi loves rugby, his family, and teasing Scarlet Bridge. With a tough family situation at home, he has his own reasons for excelling both academically and on the sports field.

As an Optical Assistant, she won’t stop talking about astigmatism. When she’s not writing (which is unfortunately too often), she can be found baking or trying out new restaurants. She loves her friends, being on time, and chocolate fondants as much as she loves reading. She is a proud feminist, another reader attached to young adult fiction, and a lover of the stars.

Thank you Turn the Pages for having me on this tour, follow along the rest of it on all platforms listed here.

Content Warnings: sexual harassment, PTSD, mentions of suicide, racism, homophobia, panic attacks, smoking. The content is not graphic but is intended to be accessible to survivors. 

I liked that we get the story from both Scarlett and Levi’s point of view, we get a better understanding of their mindsets. They both achieve a lot in school while also balancing their own family drama. My favorite aspect of the story is how the enemies to lovers trope is given to us as readers, the back and forth banter between both characters. We also get so many themes such as dysfunctional families, friendships and being yourself.

Cinderella’s transformation coming with a curse? I was definitely sold when I read this on the synopsis. I enjoy watching Disney movies and even still watch them to this day. This book was a great mix for Cinderella, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast fan, if you love all or any of those movies, I recommend you pick up this book.

Overall, it was a fun read for me, I really loved the pacing as well, that’s one thing that gets me in some books and with this one, it wasn’t like that. We get a lot of twists plus how the story flows as we progress, I hope you get the opportunity to check out this book.

I’m Dreaming of a Wyatt Christmas by Tiffany Schmidt

Genre: Young Adult Christmas Romance

Publishing Date: October 26, 2021

Synopsis:

Ballet and babysitting bring two teens together in this very merry holiday rom-com from the author of the acclaimed Bookish Boyfriends series

Noelle Partridge is known for three things: being the best ballet dancer, babysitter, and person with the most Christmas spirit in her small town. But lately she’s bored by the lessons at her dance school, and her friends and father are more bah humbug than Hallmark movie marathon. So when her favorite babysitting clients ask her to accompany them on a ski trip over winter break, she packs her bags for the slopes. It helps that they’re offering double her rate—she’ll need the money for Beacon, an elite ballet academy that’s granted her an audition. 

Noelle is ready to “Deck the Halls” and have fa la la la fun, until Wyatt, the older half-brother of her babysitting charges, decides to surprise his family for the holiday. He’s one of the best dancers at Beacon, and makes Noelle’s head spin faster than pirouettes. Unfortunately, she also manages to step on his toes—spoiling his surprise and complicating his secret plans. After a few missteps, Noelle and Wyatt begin to thaw toward each other and bond over the big decisions looming in each of their lives. With enough Christmas magic, Noelle might just start the New Year with lots of babysitting cash in her pocket and a chance with the pas de deux partner of her dreams.

Be sure to follow along the rest of this tour here. I was very excited to read this book after reading the synopsis because I pictured a cute Hallmark movie. Even as I read it, I pictured a small town and the Hallmark settings we usually have for their movies. While reading, I kept thinking how amazing it is to be in the Christmas season, the actives and vibes in the story. I enjoyed each one of the characters and their interactions with each story. If you want to read a holiday romance that will transport you to the Christmas season, this is definitely for you.
