Series: I Hear the Sunspot #3
I loved the original book in the I Hear the Sunspot series, so, of course, I read the third book as soon as I could get my hands on a copy.

Taichi has recently left college for the working world, finally figuring out what it is he wants to do. The pair continue to travel on their respective paths as they try to navigate the more than friendship, recently confessed love relationship they’ve build over the previous two books.

Series: After the Green Withered #1
I am thrilled to be a part of the Ultimate Blog Tour for Kristin Ward’s novel After the Green Withered, winner of the 2018 Best Indie Book Award. This dystopian novel is the first book in a series, also titled After the Green Withered, which is aimed at a young adult audience. The story follows an eighteen year old named Enora as she graduates high school and is enrolled in an academy where the elites and heads of society graduate and are doled jobs. Despite not wanting to go, Enora has no choice. The change would give her parents more water credits, which they desperately need. But the lack of water isn’t the only thing Enora and her world struggle with. There are other forces at work. Everything isn’t as it seems, and secrets better left hidden are slowly brought to life.
