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 …
That’s right folks, yet another blog tour! I promise this is the last blog tour for a while
it better be, for my sanity … so we’ll be back to regular posting soonish but before that happens I must introduce you to The Coronation by Livy Jarmusch!
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 once again, lovelies! Today I’m coming to inform you have a beautiful thing happening … The Secret Slipper by Amanda Tero is on blog tour! *insert streamers and cheering here* I had the amazing opportunity to read an ARC and now I get to scream my thoughts in form of a review at y’all lovely people. I’m so happy that I had this amazing opportunity, and thank you all for joining me on my stop!
(look at how pretty the cover is …)
Being a cripple is only the beginning of Lia’s troubles. It seems as if Bioti’s goal in life is to make Lia as miserable as possible. If Lia’s purpose is to be a slave, then why did God make her a cripple? How can He make something beautiful out of her deformity?
Raoul never questioned the death of his daughter until someone reports her whereabouts. If Ellia is still alive, how has she survived these ten years with her deformity? When Raoul doesn’t know who to trust, can he trust God to keep Ellia safe when evidence reveals Bioti’s dangerous character?
As time brings more hindrances, will Raoul find Ellia, or will she forever be lost to the father she doesn’t even know is searching for her?

‘Ello, lovelies! I hath returned! With a review for you. Yeah … this technically isn’t a normal posting day but … I didn’t want to just post a review on a normal day I guess? 😐
And I also dislike having to wait to post something that I already finished writing … I don’t even know …You can just count this as the post I missed yesterday … XD
I’m slowly narrowing down my TBR list on Goodreads … but haven’t been reading nearly enough … anyway!
**Warning: Very much spoilers in review below. Read at your own risk, children. Right. That is all. You have been warned. **
Heyo lovely peoples! So I’ve technically had this post written since … Wednesday last week. I was going to post it on Thursday and then Saturday and then Monday but … ahhhh! I’m not even sure what happened. Life! *flails around*
Anyway. I am here! Finally! Because of … happenings I actually considered going down to just one post a week or changing the day because apparently Mondays and Thursdays are busy now 😛 but I feel like if I mess with the schedule everything will die and the world will explode soooo … I’m probably not going to do that. I shall just attempt to actually post. *headdesks*
So! Updates! Let’s do this!
