Hey lovelies and welcome back (or not, but still welcome) to Penumbra Reviews!
So … I accidentally died off the entire blogosphere once again and I apologize for it but … that doesn’t really matter that much … What really matters is that I have a lovely book to review for you! This is literally my first (physical*) review copy so I AM INCREDIBLY HAPPY GUYS. I CAN TAKE PICTURES OF SOMETHING. I AM SO HAPPY.
I’m writing a New Year’s post (yes … I’m that late …) that I’m hoping to have up by Monday (plus a couple other that I really want to have time to write but no promises …) so I’ll be back with that very soon but until then … here’s the review.
A giant shout out to the author Angie Thompson for sending me a real life book *dies*. Thank you so much Angie! **I was given a review copy in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts expressed are my own**
*I’ve done others in like blog tours etc …
Hello, all! I’m coming to you on the first day of the blog tour for Sel Harmoni‘s debut book River Of Silence. I’ll be spotlighting the book today and telling y’all a little bit about it. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I’m looking forward to it. 😉
Well, if it isn’t the very last day of the month ….
[note: yeah … I do realize that it’s actually the first day of the month currently. Basically what happened (and partially why I didn’t post last week …) is that we ripped out all the carpeting in my bedroom and everything is in boxes and a mess and I couldn’t find my laptop charger ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Which … was a serious problem. BUT I FOUND IT SO NOW I’M BACK AND GOOD TO GO HOPEFULLY]
This may come as a shock to some but Camp NaNo (and July) is officially over tomorrow. What does this mean? Many are frantically writing their hearts out to get the last 500, 1k, 2k, however many words down in their story to reach their goal for the month. Many are eating celebratory cake. So which one are you? And which one am I?
Being a person comes with its own set of problems. Like, people expect us to socialize?? Apparently we have to sleep sometimes? Why can’t we just read and watch Netflix all day? What is life?
But being a blogger, especially a book blogger, comes with an even bigger set of problems. I mean, how do people do this? There’s just so many problems? Honestly I’m just so proud and slightly amazed at all of you book bloggers. Like what is this.
witchcraft? In my own failure of an adventure in blogging and sort of book blogging, I’ve compiled a giant list of some of these problems.
Hello, lovelies! So I have exciting news: The Twin Arrows by the lovely Kate Willis was released today! What’s also exiting for me is that I had the lovely opportunity to read an ARC for review so now I can ramble on about my thoughts to y’all. 😉
ABOUT THE BOOK
Two children. Two journeys. Twin arrows.
Ryla follows her father’s parting instructions as closely as she carries his gift. Her protectors are kind, and safety is certain inside the convent’s strong walls. But now she must leave and what lies ahead is uncertain…
Her brother Drewin won’t wait any longer. The knight promised to escort him isn’t coming, and gossiping neighbors threaten to reveal his identity. He strikes out on his own, sure he can outrun the danger…

*bounces around* Hello, loves! I’m back from vacation and thus can actually get on here with ease again! Did y’all miss me? 😉
Anyway, what’s really more important is that there is currently a beautiful blog tour going on for Kellyn Roth’s books The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective! (Which happen to be the same books I did the cover reveal for a bit ago … And what’s even better is that I get to be a part of it! *throws confetti around* I’m seriously pretty pumped though to be able to ramble about these books to anyone who cares to read this post … Plus I even interviewed the lovely author. So let’s get into that …
Hello loves! For those of you who don’t know I am currently driving many many miles as of about … four in the morning today.
No, I didn’t write and publish this all as I was both sleeping/driving/sitting in a car. Yes, this is a scheduled post from a couple of days ago because packing is a pain and I will die.
So, on the subject of packing, I have come to help all y’all poor unfortunate souls with tips that I learned the hard way as I tried to pack around sixty books to bring on my two-week long vacation.
