I’M FEELING 22!
I’m not even a huge Taylor Swift fan. But I don’t know, it feels customary to say you feel as such when you’re 22 even if you still feel very much 21? 🤷♀️
Either way, I’m going to be waddling to classes (when I wake up after hitting snooze a few times) and finishing up my liter of ice cream (look, it’s hot) before drowning in assignments (Tuesdays are the worst days for me).
In reality, I want to drown in a good book all day, but I already did that yesterday for an assignment* after getting stuffed with stuffed buns. I didn’t turn into a stuffed bun, though.
*Most of my posts are up at midnight Eastern Time and I waited until morning to post this because I couldn’t do anything that has a screen for 24 HOURS. I cry a little. (Won’t complain about that reading time, though. When else will I get a flipping 12+ hours of pure reading bliss?)
But if I’m going to do any post, and I do mean any, other than abandon posting on my birthday, it’s going to be about a book from one of my favorite series.
Why would anyone talk about a book they don’t like on their birthday anyway?
Bookwyrms and friends, I’m extremely excited to help reveal the cover for Parting Worlds by Kaitlyn Davis, the fourth book in her Once Upon a Curse series! (Organized by YA Bound Book Tours, in which I completely forgot for the cover reveal of Chasing Midnight in my excitement why am I like this.) And fortunately for all of us already sucked into the series from the beginning, it’s coming THIS! NOVEMBER! 😱
Unfortunately for us, it’s the last book in the series.
How could you. 😥
Parting Worlds is a retelling of The Little Mermaid.
“But really, what’s the book about?”
**A USA Today Recommended Series!**
She’ll risk it all to be with the man she loves… Don’t miss PARTING WORLDS, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of The Little Mermaid.
“I know humans like to start these sorts of stories with ‘once upon a time,’ but I’m worried that’s setting the stage for false hopes. Because we don’t all live, and we aren’t all happy. Not every curse can be broken, after all.”
Humans are dangerous. That’s the lesson faeries are taught as soon as their flower petals unfurl, welcoming them into the world. It’s the first thing Aerewyn remembers the priestesses telling her as a young girl. Humans are dangerous—don’t show them your magic and never cross into their lands.
So why then, when she stumbles upon a human boy in the woods, does she find him so intriguing?
His blue eyes don’t shine with malice. His smile doesn’t menace. His laughter is as warm as the sun against her cheeks. And when she later discovers he’s been knocked unconscious in a storm, injured and alone in the forest, the only thing he seems in danger of is dying.
So she saves his life—a single act that will change the fate of both their worlds.
*This is the fourth book in Once Upon a Curse, a series of interconnected stand-alone novels all set in the same fantasy universe.
Are you ready for the eye-catching cover?
No, but really. Are you?
Okay, not in the “let’s go kick some serious butt” ready.
One should always be ready in case we’re suddenly a demigod, though.
Clink the glasses in celebration, here’s the cover for Parting Worlds!
The fourth and final book of the Once Upon a Curse series launches into the world this November!
