Summary!!!

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents best-selling author Roshani Chokshi and her sequel to Aru Shah and the End of Time
Aru is only just getting the hang of this whole Pandava thing when the Otherworld goes into full panic mode. The god of love’s bow and arrow have gone missing, and the thief isn’t playing Cupid. Instead, they’re turning people into heartless fighting-machine zombies. 
If that weren’t bad enough, somehow Aru gets framed as the thief. If she doesn’t find the arrow by the next full moon, she’ll be kicked out of the Otherworld. For good. 
But, for better or worse, she won’t be going it alone. Along with her soul-sister, Mini, Aru will team up with Brynne, an ultra-strong girl who knows more than she lets on, and Aiden, the boy who lives across the street and is also hiding plenty of secrets. Together they’ll battle demons, travel through a glittering and dangerous serpent realm, and discover that their enemy isn’t at all who they expected.

My Thoughts:

I really loved this sequel book to the first book in this series. I really loved the adventure in this novel and also the quest that the characters were set on. I also loved how the group expanded to feature more characters this book. It was super fun read and one that I really loved listening to.

Pages: 256

Format: Hardback

Source: borrowed

2020 challenge: 2020 book

Buy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads

I would give this book 3 for a review.

Summary!!!

An enchanting, riotous, and playfully illustrated debut graphic novel following a young goblin trying to save her best friend from the haunted mall—perfect for fans of Steven Universe and Adventure Time.

In the eerie town of ‘Allows, some people get to be magical sorceresses, while other people have their spirits trapped in the mall for all ghastly eternity.

Then there’s twelve-year-old goblin-witch Beetle, who’s caught in between. She’d rather skip being homeschooled completely and spend time with her best friend, Blob Glost. But the mall is getting boring, and B.G. is cursed to haunt it, tethered there by some unseen force. And now Beetle’s old best friend, Kat, is back in town for a sorcery apprenticeship with her Aunt Hollowbone. Kat is everything Beetle wants to be: beautiful, cool, great at magic, and kind of famous online. Beetle’s quickly being left in the dust.

But Kat’s mentor has set her own vile scheme in motion. If Blob Ghost doesn’t escape the mall soon, their afterlife might be coming to a very sticky end. Now, Beetle has less than a week to rescue her best ghost, encourage Kat to stand up for herself, and confront the magic she’s been avoiding for far too long. And hopefully ride a broom without crashing.

My Thoughts:

I wil def say this highlight of this read was def the stunning art in this graphic novel. I also loved the world building and the characters at he heart of this read. I really loved that is book focused on so many different types of friendships. It also had some unexpected elements that I really loved the enhanced the read and it was such a prefect fall read!!

Girls Save the World in This One (Non-Spoiler Review)

Girls save the world in this one  by Ash Parsons

Published by    Philomel Books on April 14, 2020

Genres: Fantsay

Pages: 432

Format: arc

Source: Publisher

2020 challenge: 2020 book

Buy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads

I would give this book 2 for a review.

Summary!!!

Mega-fan June Blue’s whole life has been leading up to this moment: ZombieCon!The Ultimate in Undead Entertainment has finally come to her hometown. She and her two best friends–gorgeous, brilliant Imani and super-sweet, outrageously silly Siggy–plan on hitting all the panels and photo ops, and meeting the heartthrob lead of their favorite zombie apocalypse show, Human Wasteland. It’s going to be the best time of their lives–and one of their last adventures before they all split up for college.

And when they arrive, everything seems perfect. June’s definitely not going to let anything get in the way
of the flawless con experience–even though she’s endlessly anxious about the SATs and college admissions,
and she can’t seem to avoid her ex-best friend Blair, whose VIP badge lets her walk straight to the front of every single line. No matter what, June is determined to make the best of her dream day at ZombieCon!

But something’s not quite right at the con–there are strange people in hazmat suits running around, enthusiastic cosplayers taking their shambling a little too far, and someone actually biting a cast member. Then, at a panel gone wrong, June and her friends discover the truth: the zombie apocalypse is here.

Now June, Imani, and Siggy must do whatever it takes to survive a horde of actual flesh-eating zombies–
and save the world. A hilarious and heartfelt horror comedy, that is an ode to zombies, friendship, and girl power.

My Thoughts:

I really did love the various representation that was shown in this book including learning disability and just rep in general. I really loved the concept of this novel as well. A con seeing meets a real life zombie issue. It was super fast pace story with a trio of girls at the heart of it. I did find the past pace nature sometimes a hard to follow. Also the three main characters, it was hard to feel connected to the other characters we meet in the second half of the book. I really do think this would make fun movie. I also loved the fandom convo that was at the heart of this read as well! I would def read more by this author in the future.

Season of the Witch (Non-Spoiler Review)

Genres: Prequel Tie in novel

Pages: 288

Format: arc

Source: Publisher

2020 challenge:BTBLC

Buy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads

I would give this book 4 for a review.

Summary!!!

It’s the summer before her sixteenth birthday, and Sabrina Spellman knows her world is about to change. She’s always studied magic and spells with her aunts, Hilda and Zelda. But she’s also lived a normal mortal life — attending Baxter High, hanging out with her friends Susie and Roz, and going to the movies with her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.

Now time is running out on her everyday, normal world, and leaving behind Roz and Susie and Harvey is a lot harder than she thought it would be. Especially because Sabrina isn’t sure how Harvey feels about her. Her cousin Ambrose suggests performing a spell to discover Harvey’s true feelings. But when a mysterious wood spirit interferes, the spell backfires… in a big way.

Sabrina has always been attracted to the power of being a witch. But now she can’t help wondering if that power is leading her down the wrong path. Will she choose to forsake the path of light and follow the path of night?

This exclusive prequel novel will reveal a side of Sabrina not seen on the new Netflix show. What choice will Sabrina make… and will it be the right one?

My Thoughts:

I really did wind up enjoying this book. I thought that this book handled the character development so well and really did make excited to pick up the show in the future. I also liked this book did give us looks in to various characters in this world and i LOVED that. This book was def creepy and loved the world that it explored. I thought the plot was a bit on the simply side but a very good read, to gain some background about the characters in the t.v show. Will def be reading more books in this series in the future.
