A weekly post in which I present eye-pleasing covers of books that have yet to be released along with their official blurbs and preorder buttons for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and The Book Depository. Covermance is featured on Sundays. It is also a feature in the sidebar that is regularly updated with a new cover. Exclusively titled by Annabelle at Sparkles and Lightning.

A weekly post featuring the hottest upcoming reads of the week. I include YA books only at my own discretion. I will often include books even if I personally have little to no interest in them. I try to make the formatting uniform but it actually depends on how much Blogger is agreeing with me at the time I'm writing the post. Storm of Books is currently on hiatus but I plan to return to it again in the near future. Exclusively titled by Annabelle at Sparkles and Lightning.

Magic Mondays is another feature created by Sparkles and Lightning. Due to popular request, Magic Mondays is now a public weekly meme. Click here for information on how to join! Each Monday, I create a post in which I include an excerpt of any young adult or childrens' book. Its features an upcoming book that I am highly anticipating. Magic Mondays also involves a giveaway of five copies of the book I have excerpted from. Exclusively titled by Annabelle at Sparkles and Lightning.

I'm a university student and ballroom dancer who spends too much time curled up with a good book. Red roses are my favorite and I love a good love story.
