My Monday

It’s late again, sorry about that, my step-dad was looking up ASL (Sign Language) and Jamaican food…yeah.

Yesterday we went to the first American Sign Language (ASL) class to get ready for our trip to Jamaica next year. We will be going to Knockpatrick‘s School of the Deaf.

Other than that, not much has been going on. (Well, things have happened, but it’s a lot of waiting and planning at this point.)

Other than that, I have been working my way through my Fall 2018 ARC and review copy pile. I have quite a few titles I’m excited about, and hope to have plenty of reviews this month! There are also a few blog tours I’m signed up for, and some Fall releases that I can’t wait to read!

I’m hoping to have more to share, and a more interesting update next week. Below is one of the books I’m about to start!

Facing the Sun

(Facing the Sun #1)

The glow itself seemed to be alive, breathing, spreading under the baby’s skin.

One question filled my mind: Who is this child? Tavi Malin is born facing the sun, filled with greater magic than any other sun-blessed child. At age fourteen, her magic awakens, but her uncontrolled power nearly destroys her school, leaving her confidence as shaken as her surroundings.
Tavi and her friends train to use their gifts, unaware of the threat developing in a distant city. Dissidents have banded together, and they’re killing to attain gray magic, an ominous new force that breaks the rules of ordinary magic. But to seize true power, the Grays must grow their ranks—and Tavi is a prize worth pursuing.
In a fight where confidence is as crucial as strength, even extraordinary gifts aren’t sufficient. If Tavi is to prevail against the Grays, she must find a courage that goes deeper than magic itself. Here’s what early readers are saying:
“Facing the Sun kept me hooked from the beginning to the end. I fell in love with the characters (especially Tavi and Tullen). It was clear to me that the author was a masterful storyteller.” -Sarah Lentz
“The Sun-Blessed Trilogy was one of the most exciting, breathtaking, and heart-stopping series I’ve ever read! Readers of all ages will enjoy this wonderful series.” -Madysun Waldrop
“Face it! You won’t be able to put these books down. Order them as a trilogy. You’ll want the next one at your fingertips when you finish the first one.” -Brenda Elliott
“Facing the Sun introduced me to wonderfully complex characters. Anderson creates characters you want to know and a world you might even want to live in!” -Kim Decker
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Sun-Blessed Trilogy. Following Tavi and her friends through their journey of growing up, getting stronger and wiser kept me on the edge of my seat. All along I was either rooting or crying for them. Made me wish I were born blessed too!” -DeDe Pollnow
