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: 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.

3.He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.

What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into …
