Blog Tour: Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen

I had been eying this book for a long time, so when I saw there was a blog tour for it, I hopped on as fast as I could! Without further ado, here’s my stop for the tour!

About the Book

Perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen, and praised as “an intense rush of rebellion and romance” by #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Garber, this romantic and layered Own Voices debut from Abigail Hing Wen is a dazzling, fun-filled romp.

“Our cousins have done this program,” Sophie whispers. “Best kept secret. Zero supervision.” And just like that, Ever Wong’s summer takes an unexpected turn. Gone is Chien Tan, the strict educational program in Taiwan that Ever was expecting. In its place, she finds Loveboat: a summer-long free-for-all where hookups abound, adults turn a blind eye, snake-blood sake flows abundantly, and the nightlife runs nonstop.

Reader Problems Book Tag

I saw this list of questions on a few blogs so I thought that this would be something fun to do. Let me know if you relate to anything below!

1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. how do you decide what to read next?

The ones that hook me in first based on the synopsis. Generally speaking, I read YA books first, since you can finish them quickly.

 2. You’re halfway through a book, and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?

Put it down. If I don’t like a book, I’m not going to pick it up as often, and usually it will just sit there until I’m feeling like reading it (several weeks, months or even years later).

Book Review: The Minimalist Babe by Lola R. Marie

About the book

Lola is every bit the minimalist babe – she lives simply, is intelligent and sassy, emotional and strong, calm and composed. Realizing that less is more, she traded in material possessions to focus on what was truly important to her. Lola’s inspiring guide delivers real-world advice on how to consume less, clear out clutter, find authenticity, and live a life based on freedom. It is a sincere attempt to help those who want to end their obsession with stuff.

Echoing the thoughts behind Leonardo da Vinci’s quote that “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” this book teaches you how to value the simple things. From learning to declutter and live with less to living life with passion, good health, and great relationships. The Minimalist Babe is for anyone who desires a more intentional life. Drawing from real-life experiences, it is filled with stories that will teach you step-by-step how to be: authentic, self-assured, calm and composed, mindful, minimal and self-sufficient, financially stable, purposeful, free, healthy and happy.

So what are you waiting for?

Book Tour + Giveaway: Everything I Knew To Be True by Rayna York

Everything I Knew To Be True is a gripping YA novel by Rayna York. Right off the bat, it covers a tragic topic: losing your mother, but is perfectly paired with adventure and a dash of romance. The thing I love most about realistic fiction is that it deals with real life and all the feelings, experiences, and challenges that come with it. This book did a wonderful job of bringing Cassie, the main character, to life.

As a teen, I know I go through moments where insecurity hits, or you sit there wondering what will happen next in your life. And when some monumental decision comes, I’d approach it with a 9 foot long stick. Teens are in the stage of life where they’re trying to figure out how they want to present themselves to the world, their purpose, and their future.

Total Blueprint for World Domination by Jolene Stockman was a great book that provided helpful guidance for me. This is my stop for the blog tour for this book, organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. This post will cover my review of the book, along with an excerpt and special author interview!
