BOOK DETAILS:
Beneath the Starlit Sea
by Nicole Bea
Publication date: June 14, 2022
Genres: Fantasy, Historical, New Adult


Synopsis:

Sorceress Illyse prefers to isolate herself from the age-old conflict between her coven and the humans of Sjökanten, but not at the expense of her own life. Captured by the king’s men, she is threatened with the ultimate demise for sorceresses—being forever imprisoned in ore—unless she manages to put an end to the gruesome murders of human citizens at the hands of a mysterious sea creature.

Bound by an iron band that limits her power, Illyse, and her fox familiar, join with Garit Darling, a medical practitioner and an enigma unto himself. Together, they delve deep into forgotten lore and forbidden romantic entanglements, despite a ban on relationships between sorceresses and humans. However, when it is discovered that Garit’s past is more closely tied to their investigation than either initially realizes, soon their passion and distraction from the crimes may just be at the cost of Illyse’s potential freedom… and Garit’s life.

She’s the One Who Won’t Behave
by S. R. Cronin
(The War Stories of the Seven Troublesome Sisters, #6)
Publication date: July 8, 2022
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Historical


Synopsis:

The War Stories of the Seven Troublesome Sisters:

It’s the 1200’s in Ilari, a small mythical realm somewhere between Europe and Asia. Peace and prosperity have reigned for generations. That doesn’t mean every citizen is happy, however.

In the outer nichna of Vinx lives the seven troublesome daughters of an intellectual farmer and his ambitious wife. Ilari has no idea how lucky it is to have this family of misfits, for the Mongols are making their way further westward every winter and this prosperous realm is a tiny plum ripe for picking.  Desperate, the seven sisters will devise a way to save their realm. Can their preposterous ideas possibly work?

She’s the One Who Won’t Behave:

Gypsum, the sixth of seven sisters, has always been a rebel. Yet no one thought she would go so far as to join the reczavy, a group living in tents on the edge of the desert and known for their sexual promiscuity and playful ways.

But as the date of the Mongols’ return draws near, Ilarians of all types must work together if they are to have any hope of surviving. And the reczavy, for all of their odd ways, do have plenty of tricks up their sleeves. Well, up their sleeves whenever they are bothering to wear clothes, that is.

Gypsum is touched when her oldest sister Ryalgar comes to call, and brings an olive branch with her. Ryalgar recognizes that the reczavy have as much to lose as anyone, and as much to contribute. Will Gypsum accept a key role in the plan to stop the invasion? Of course she will.

Unfortunately, her playmates don’t all feel the same sense of urgency. Many would rather simply enjoy the time they have left. A few claim to be allergic to long-term planning. And some are too busy with their own poorly-timed plans to overthrow the government Ilari already has.

Good thing needlepoint is the one traditional skill at which Gypsum has always excelled. She will need to thread a fine needle in order to coax this recalcitrant group into becoming life-saving warriors of a very different kind.

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance, Sports

Synopsis: She’s too trusting…

Elora has never been so cold. Growing up in the tropics did not prepare her for a new life in Minnesota. For the first time, she’s living in a place that doesn’t float and her best friend isn’t also her family. Everything is a new experience, a new adventure. Including hockey. The arena is freezing, but the game is fierce, fast, and fascinating. She can’t take her eyes off the action… or off a certain player.

He’s wary of everyone…

Wyatt is done with puck bunnies. He just wants to play, go to class, and be left alone. The opposite sex dishes out nothing but misery. School and hockey must come first. Then he meets Elora, and she’s totally clueless about hockey, about school, about a little bit of everything. And she’s the opposite of the ice queen who crushed his heart. But he’s not ready to light that lamp.

When Elora suffers a crisis of confidence, Wyatt’s willing to help her regain her faith in people, especially him. Even if it takes confronting his past to have a future.

Can Wyatt show Elora that he’s the man she thinks he is or will they end up being two ships passing in the night?

Review: Snack Attack by Elle Stephens

Goodreads Blurb

Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years is Nickelodeon’s all-new animated series–coming to Paramount+ and PVOD on March 4, 2021!

What secrets are hiding in Plankton’s Kamp Koral kitchen? SpongeBob and Patrick are determined to find out–but might not like what they uncover. Boys and girls ages 5 to 7 who love Nickelodeon’s new animated series will love this super-silly Step 3 Step into Reading leveled reader that includes over 30 stickers.

Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics. For children who are ready to read on their own. 

My Review: Rated 4 Out of 5 Stars

Who doesn’t love snacks? Cupcakes, chips, and chocolates are children’s go-to snacks. SpongeBob and Patrick are off to Kamp Koral, where the food is terrible. Mischievous Plankton produces mutant snacks that turn snack eaters into mutants. The two hungry friends do not realize those beautiful and delicious snacks are not what they seem to be.

The step into reading books knows what children love. This particular book includes 30 stickers with all the SpongeBob characters. That was one thing that drew me into this book, as I have always loved stickers. The cover design draws attention to the cupcake by surrounding it with yellow glitter sparks and a glittery title; the areas with the glitter have an added texture. I love books that have sparkle on their cover. The illustrations are adorable, and the colors are captivating; the illustrations are sure to delight children. SpongeBob is very popular, which makes this book very attractive to children. I have always loved SpongeBob myself. It’s a character that is always happy and can be quite silly.

Synopsis: I was supposed to stay invisible.
My school might be a den of vipers, but if I endure senior year, I have a shot at my dream: a place at Tisch.
I’m used to keeping my eyes down and my mouth shut to survive the cruel, depraved, privileged assholes who delight in breaking the weak. Then I see something I can’t ignore. Four boys, as beautiful as they are twisted, threatened my friend. They might run the school, but that doesn’t give them the right to corner a poor, terrified girl.
Only, I didn’t have all the facts when I intervened.
I stood up to the four idols of this school, and Jason, the worst of them, won’t let the world forget it. Now I’m no longer a ghost: I’m the target, humiliated at every turn.
If I want them off my back, I don’t have any choice but to make a deal with the devil who started this nightmare in the first place.
Jason’s more than happy to oblige…as long as I’m willing to play his twisted games.

Review: Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley

Goodreads Blurb

As a biracial, unenrolled tribal member and the product of a scandal, eighteen-year-old Daunis Fontaine has never quite fit in, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. Daunis dreams of studying medicine, but when her family is struck by tragedy, she puts her future on hold to care for her fragile mother.

The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother Levi’s hockey team. Yet even as Daunis falls for Jamie, certain details don’t add up and she senses the dashing hockey star is hiding something. Everything comes to light when Daunis witnesses a shocking murder, thrusting her into the heart of a criminal investigation.

Reluctantly, Daunis agrees to go undercover, but secretly pursues her own investigation, tracking down the criminals with her knowledge of chemistry and traditional medicine. But the deceptions—and deaths—keep piling up and soon the threat strikes too close to home.

Now, Daunis must learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman) and how far she’ll go to protect her community, even if it tears apart the only world she’s ever known.

Debut author Angeline Boulley crafts a groundbreaking YA thriller about a Native teen who must root out the corruption in her community, for readers of Angie Thomas and Tommy Orange.

My Review: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars

Debut author Angeline Boulley wrote a YA must-read thriller drama, with a Native American teen bringing to light the injustice, deceit, and corruption in her community, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas.

The story has a strong opening. Each character’s background and connection to the Ojibwe reservation is described in detail by the author. Most of the characters are biracial and belong to two different communities. The story is told in the first-person narrative allowing the reader to see what the main character is thinking. The author is well versed in Native American traditions and culture. You can see this as she talks about the native culture as it’s familiar to her. The story has a steady pace with thrilling moments that make this book hard to put down. The author includes the native language throughout the book giving the reader another aspect of the culture.

A thrilling story where drugs are running rampant through a Native community while taking innocent lives. A young girl who is part Native American needs to go undercover to unveil the truth and fight for justice. Will her search for justice bring her closer to her Native American tribe or farther apart? It’s a young adult story filled with loss, lies, Native American traditions, racism, and the strength of women in a world that doesn’t support their rights and safety.
