Blog Tour - The Roots of Us By Candace Knoebel & Review!

Title: The Roots of Us

Author: Candace Knoebel

Publication Date: May 17th, 2018

Genres: Contemporary, Romance
The first time I saw Hudson Jameson, he was saving someone’s life. 

The second time, he was ruining mine. 

It was only supposed to be a vacation. A chance to let the Florida sun burn away the residue left behind from my failed relationships. I wasn’t searching for love. I was on a hiatus from men, especially ones with secrets.

Except Hudson had the gaze of a man drowning in his own miseries, and I was a sucker for the damaged souls. How could I deny him? How could I resist when his lips claimed mine? 

I knew I couldn’t stay. 
He told me he couldn’t bear to leave.

But some roots intertwine and refuse to let go, no matter how far you run.

Most Anticipated Book Releases - June Edition! {Part 1}

Hello guys and welcome to June's most anticipated book releases post! I do these every single month since the beginning of the year and I really hope you guys find them useful! There are so many books coming out during the summertime and I'm already feeling extremely overwhelmed because for each book I buy, I have to read five more. Or rather, for every five books that I read, I'm allowing myself to check out of the Book Depository with just one, which will be a huge struggle! Didn't want to go on a book buying ban because then, I would've been even more inclined to buy books so, I figured with this kind of challenge, I was narrowing down the books currently on my TBR shelf and adding one for every five that I move to my read shelf! I also just created a TBR jar, which will hopefully help me narrow down my choices when I'm not sure what to read next! 

Do you guys go on book buying challenges when things get out of hand?

I though I'd leave my bookish updates here in case you don't follow me on Instagram because I completely forgot to put together a monthly wrap up and there's no point in posting one now, since we're already halfway through May! Since all that's being said, let's move on to Part 1 of June's most anticipated reads!

Elena Reviews: The Queen's Rising {The Queen's Rising #1} By Rebecca Ross

Title: The Queen's Rising

{The Queen's Rising #1}

Author: Rebecca Ross

Publication Date: February 2018

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.

Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.

Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes.

With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?
