Fangirl Friday: Ballad of The Beanstalk Cover Reveal + Shadowhunters S2E4 Review

Posted January 27, 2017 by Lupe

Hello! Hello! (I said hello twice on purpose it was not a typo) I’ve had a weird week, but soon got over it after realizing all of the things that happened this week! It’s also been very cold. Actually, we’ve had a very hot Saturday which honestly felt like spring and the next day felt like we were back in the freezing temperatures. It doesn’t surprise me since it’s STL I’m talking about here. We literally get all four seasons in a week! Anyway…..Let’s start with an awesome cover reveal!

Ballad of The Beanstalk
By: Amy McNulty
Release Date: April 11, 2017
Pre-order on Amazon | Goodreads
Synopsis: As her fingers move across the strings of her family’s heirloom harp, sixteen-year- old Clarion can forget. She doesn’t dwell on the recent passing of her beloved father or the fact that her mother has just sold everything they owned, including that very same instrument that gives Clarion life. She doesn’t think about how her friends treat her like a feeble, brittle thing to be protected. She doesn’t worry about how to tell the elegant Elena, her best friend and first love, that she doesn’t want to be her sweetheart anymore. She becomes the melody and loses herself in the song.

When Mack, a lord’s dashing young son, rides into town so his father and Elena’s can arrange a marriage between the two youth, Clarion finds herself falling in love with a boy for the first time. Drawn to Clarion’s music, Mack puts Clarion and Elena’s relationship to the test, but he soon vanishes by climbing up a giant beanstalk that only Clarion has seen. When even the town witch won’t help, Clarion is determined to rescue Mack herself and prove once and for all that she doesn’t need protecting. But while she fancied herself a savior, she couldn’t have imagined the enormous world of danger that awaits her in the kingdom of the clouds.

A prequel to the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk that reveals the true story behind the
magical singing harp.

The e-book will be exclusive to Amazon and will be available for free to Kindle
Unlimited subscribers! The paperback will be available more widely; watch for news

We also have another cover reveal I would like to mention and that is for A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas! Go buy it once it hits your local bookstore on May 2, 2017!

We finally get the movie title for the upcoming Star Wars Movie coming this December 15, 2017!

Shadowhunters S2E4 Day of Wrath: Spoiler Free Review

I’m serious when I say this, but this season is WAY BETTER than the first. I highly recommend watching, because this episode totally made it worth it! There were tons of things going on. Valentine manipulating plans and having everyone destroy each other, to trying to have Jace back under his wing. Jace, of course, have to go and serve some jail time. I’m trying SO hard not to say anything that will spoil things for you if you have not watched it. Clary totally annoyed me a little, but the ending made me feel very bad for her. Poor Raphael and Simon for trying to find that weirdo Camille. Magnus is just as mysterious and awesome as ever. He is quickly becoming one of my favorites on this show. I’m also sensing that Alec is slowly softening a little which is such a good change. The ending broke me with Jace and Clary. You have to see this show JUST for this episode. It was very suspenseful and the commercials KILL ME EVERY TIME!

Go watch this awesome show on Freeform on Mondays 8/7c!
