{Blitz} "Garden of Thorns" by Amber Mitchell

Garden of Thorns (Garden of Thorns #1)
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Release Date: March 6th 2017
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:

After seven grueling years of captivity in the Garden—a burlesque troupe of slave girls—sixteen-year-old Rose finds an opportunity to escape during a performance for the emperor. But the hostage she randomly chose from the crowd to aid her isn’t one of the emperor’s men—not anymore. He’s the former heir to the throne, who is now leading a rebellion against it.

Rayce is a wanted man and dangerously charismatic, the worst person for Rose to get involved with, no matter what his smile promises. But he assumes Rose’s attempt to take him hostage is part of a plot to crush the rebellion, so he takes her as his hostage. Now Rose must prove where her loyalties lie, and she offers Rayce a deal—if he helps her rescue the other girls, she’ll tell him all the Garden’s secrets.

Except the one secret she’s kept for seven years that she’ll take to her grave if she must.

My Comments Weren't Working :'(

You guys! The option to comment on my posts stopped working!!
Needless to say I was pretty upset once I found out... 
At first I was SUPER confused. I couldn't figure out what happened.
Luckily, I figured out how to fix it and all is right in Book Bite Reviews Land.

Just as a triple check precaution, if you could say "hi" in the comments below I would SUPER appreciate it.

{Spotlight} "Crossed Fire" by Kim Baccellia

Crossed Fired
by: Kim Baccellia
Genre: YA Paranormal
Page Count: 219
Published: December 9, 2017

Stephanie Stewart is a typical sixteen-year-old girl—she loves hanging out with her friends, going to concerts, and sipping mocha lattes. Yup. Just your average teenager . . . Except for one difference—she can see and talk to the dead. In fact, Stephanie helps dead girls who who’ve been murdered or killed, cross over. Just as Stephanie is getting used to her unique “gift”, her mom stumbles into some dangerous witchcraft that backfires and triggers similar abilities in Stephanie’s best friend Cura, and nemesis Hillary. 
Stephanie already has enough trouble trying to maintain a “normal” life between school and her cute boyfriend Dylan, who happens to have a supernatural talent all his own. But now she has to help her friend Cura and her “frenemy” Hillary cope with their new-found powers as well as cross over two murdered cheerleaders and battle an evil demon who wants to use Stephanie’s supernatural strengths as a free pass to The Other Side. And she needs to do it all while still getting her term papers in on time. She’s definitely going to need an extra-large mocha latte for this.

Top Ten Tv Show Premieres I'm Looking Forward To

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week there will be a new topic to inspire a top ten list. Click the image above to see the full schedule.

This Weeks Topic:
Binge-worthy TV Shows/Movies

This week's topic is technically my top ten binge-worthy shows, but with the Fall Season Premieres right around the corner I thought it would be more fun to talk about what new shows I can't wait to watch. There are only 7 new shows coming out that I can't wait to check out so I also included 3 that are returning this fall and are super binge-y in the meantime. 

Top 3 Shows To Binge Before They Come Back
  1. Madam Secretary (CBS | Oct. 7th)
  2. Crazy Ex Girlfriend (CW | Oct. 12th)
  3. This Is Us (NBC | Sept. 25th)
