promposal (n.)--an often public proposal, in which one person asks another to the prom, eliciting joy or mortification.

Camilla can't help hoping her secret crush, Benjamin, might randomly surprise her out of the blue with a promposal. However, when she's asked to prom by an irritating casual acquaintance--wearing a fancy tux and standing in front of a news crew--she's forced to say yes. Yet all hope's not lost. A timely school project gives Camilla a chance to get closer to Benjamin...and it seems like the chemistry between them is crackling. But is she reading into something that isn't there?

Joshua, Camilla's bestie, has been secretly in love with his gay best friend, Ethan, since middle school. Just as he decides to bite the bullet and ask Ethan if he'll go to prom with him, even if just as friends, he gets a shocking surprise: Ethan asks Joshua for help crafting the perfect promposal--for another guy. Now Joshua has to suppress his love and try to fake enthusiasm as he watches his dreams fall apart...unless he can make Ethan see that love has been right in front of his eyes the whole time.

The road to the perfect promposal isn't easy to navigate. But one thing's certain--prom season is going to be memorable.

My Thoughts:
I'm really excited to read this book!! It just sounds super light hearted and the perfect book to read in the winter time. Good thing it comes out in Feburary :)

Feature and Follow Friday (56)

Hi Everyone! 

Feature and Follow Friday is Hosted By Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. So be sure to check out the original posts as well. 

     Question| What character(s) would you like to see with their own twitter account. 

         Answer| When I thought about which character's twitter I would like to see I came to the conclusion i'd prefer to see a funny character twitter. So the first person I thought of when I read this question was Kenji from the Shatter Me series Kenji is hilarious throughout the series and I'd love to see what comic relief he'd have on the real world. Also, I know Kenji would have me laughing at almost every single tweet he posted. 

Then the second person I thought of is Kaiden from The Sweet Trilogy.I honestly have no words for Kaiden because Kaiden is Kaiden and he just needs a twitter.

Who would you like to see have a twitter account?

Waiting on Wednesday 149: The Glass Arrow

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Name: The Glass Arrow
Author: Kristen Simmons
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: February 10th, 2015

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

My Thoughts:
This book sounds really interesting! I'm interested to see if this book is dystopian or is just set in another world. Just by reading the description, I think I am really going to like Aya and I'm excited to read this book next year!

Waiting on Wednesday 148: The Blood of Olympus

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Name: The Blood of Olympus
Author: Rick Riordan 
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Release Date: October 7th, 2014
Add the book on Goodreads

Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it "might" be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

My Thoughts:
I've been reading Rick Riordan's books since at least 7th grade, so I am SUPER excited for The Blood of Olympus. The original series (the Percy Jackson series) will always be my favorite, but I can't wait to see how this book goes. Rick Riordan is an amazing storyteller and I hope this book doesn't disappoint!

Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.

My Thoughts:
This book sounds right up my alley! I've really been into reading high fantasy books lately and this seems the perfect book for me. I've already been hearing amazing things about The Orphan Queen so I can't wait to read this one when it comes out!

Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.

When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.

To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?

Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.

My Thoughts:
I'm already a big fan of Rachel Vincent so it seems super logical that I am so excited for this book!! The story sounds really interesting and I can't wait to read this when it comes out next year!
