In Deeper Waters – a magical sea adventure – review + blog tour + giveaway (US and intl)

A young prince must rely on a mysterious stranger to save him when he is kidnapped during his coming-of-age tour in this swoony adventure that is The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Pirates of the Caribbean.

Set in a kingdom by the sea, journeying through the waters, and the towns near the banks, IDW follows Tal, a young prince on his coming-of-age tour, as he finds himself in the midst of a rouge kidnapping.

Interview with Gloria Chao – author of Rent a Boyfriend, Our Wayward Fate and American Panda

Last year, I got lucky enough to read an early copy of Rent a Boyfriend. And then immediately fell in love with the story.

Today Tonight Tomorrow review – a heartwarming story about romance novels, friendship, family and culture, and the last day of high school

Before I begin, I’d like to say grateful I’m to be a part of Rachel’s street team and getting a chance to read this book early on and get numerous behind the scenes updates.

Now, moving on to the review – ah, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. The enemies-to-lovers trope is one that I tend to stay away from because I often find myself being underwhelmed by them. Naturally, I was wary of going into the book. But it passed all of my expectations and became one of my favorite books I read this year.
