BLOG TOUR | GUEST POST: Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles #3)

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes, this is my stop on The Beauty of Darkness blog tour!
I love this series, and CAN NOT WAIT to read the final installment!

Publicaiton: August 2, 2106
By: Henry Holt 
Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous - what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.

Bestselling author Mary E. Pearson's combination of intrigue, suspense, romance and action make this a riveting page turner for teens.

QUESTION FOR LIA: As women, we tend to focus on what we consider to be our flaws, things we don't like about ourselves, or what we wish we could change. What is one thing you (as Lia) like about yourself and why?

Lia: It is perhaps a bit odd, but what others might consider my flaw, I consider a strength: My mouth. I tend to say what I’m thinking. I know at times, I don’t choose the best timing, but sometimes the best timing never comes. We dance around words like they are fragile goblets. I am not afraid to break a goblet or two.

I like this aspect about myself because I see how often voices can be quashed and told they don’t matter. Every voice matters. Mine does too.

Griz, a Rahtan soldier, recently tried to “override” my voice. I set him straight. A lot of goblets were broken in that conversation. 

And then there’s the Komizar. He tried to steal my voice entirely. We know how that turned out for him. Sometimes more than a goblet breaks.

Every woman has different strengths. We should celebrate them all and not focus on the flaws. My friend Pauline, for instance, has a quiet voice but a mean streak when it comes to loyalty. And Gwyneth, she is one savvy and perceptive lady. And then there’s Berdi who is intensely practical, and dependable. These women are my army--even when we are separated by hundreds of miles. I feel very fortunate to call them my friends. Why dwell on flaws?

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
