Synopsis: For fans of Pretty Little LiarsLittle Monsters is a new psychological thriller, from the author of The Darkest Corners, about appearances versus reality and the power of manipulation amongst teenage girls. 

Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.
Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.
Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.
But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.
Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.

Zodiac Books Rereadathon: Wandering Star Tour

Zodiac_BlogTourBanner1_17_2p

Hi guys! Unfortunately, the post I’m putting up today is not the post I had planned for. I was scheduled to put up a fun discussion post about some popular YA characters and their Zodiac houses yesterday. But due to a particularly evil stroke of misfortune, WordPress completely freaked out on me and my blog shut down. I obviously was able to get it running again, but my entire post was deleted along with my July Wrap-Up. I did think about attempting to recreate my original Zodiac post, but it took me at least 4 hours of laborious researching and formatting and I just can’t bring myself to do it all again. So instead I’m doing just a simple spotlight post with the giveaway at the end! If you guys wanna comment some of your favorite characters and what you think their Zodiac houses would be, that would honestly make my day! I will share with you my favorite character ever that I am 100% confident of what his house is:

My First ARC August!

Last year, before I started this blog, I saw some readers on bookstagram and Twitter participating in #ARCAugust. I thought it was pretty cool to have so many ARCs that you needed a whole month dedicated to reading them. Little did I know, a year later I’d be in that exact situation (I have Netgalley to thank for that)!

So buckle up, and prepare for a ranty post my friends!

Hey guys! Today I’m back with my second #ARCstravaganza post, a weekly meme hosted by YA and Wine. Every Monday you post about an ARC you received that you’re excited about, either in a blog post or bookstagram photo (although I think starting in August it will just be on bookstagram). Each month, one participant will win a physical copy of an upcoming YA novel!
