Book Humans Interviews: Books and Bees

Welcome to the Book Human Interviews! Every week I will be interviewing one person from our overarching book community: a book blogger, a booktuber, or, a bookstagrammer. The idea is to get to know people in each sector more and connect with each other. If you’d like to be interviewed, fill out this form and I will schedule you in!

Today, we are talking to Catherine, the book blogger behind Books and Bees! Follow along as we learn more about one of our fellow Book Humans…

Q1: What drew you to join the community you chose in the previous questions?
I love reading and already followed a few book bloggers. In need of a hobby to bring me joy, I made a blog and accompanying social media!

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
I like that people often share more personal aspects of themselves. Even just sharing what you’re doing over the weekend is lovely and leads to lots of fun conversations where books and life are discussed.

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
I’d say Good Omens, since this was my go-to before the series came out. I think that though the book is written for adults, the humor and content is not particularly inappropriate for bookish children with parental guidance. It’s also a very enjoyable read for many people of different reading preferences!

Lastly, here are three posts that I love from their blog:

  1. Can you be the wrong audience for a book?
  2. Making Time for Reading
  3. Ending 2019: A Final TBR

A Constellation of Roses by Miranda Asebedo – Blog Tour

A Constellation of Roses tour banner

*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*

A Constellation of RosesHello everyone! Today, I am lucky to be partnering with the Fantastic Flying Book Club and Miranda Asebedo to review her new book, A Constellation of Roses and, spoiler alert, I absolutely loved it! Before I get into my review, though, here’s the synopsis, via Goodreads:

Ever since her mother walked out, Trix McCabe has been determined to make it on her own. And with her near-magical gift for pulling valuables off unsuspecting strangers, Trix is confident she has what it takes to survive. Until she’s caught and given a choice: jail time, or go live with her long-lost family in the tiny town of Rocksaw, Kansas.

Trix doesn’t plan to stick around Rocksaw long, but there’s something special about her McCabe relatives that she is drawn to. Her aunt, Mia, bakes pies that seem to cure all ills. Her cousin, Ember, can tell a person’s deepest secret with the touch of a hand. And Trix’s great-aunt takes one look at Trix’s palm and tells her that if she doesn’t put down roots somewhere, she won’t have a future anywhere.

Before long, Trix feels like she might finally belong with this special group of women in this tiny town in Kansas. But when her past comes back to haunt her, she’ll have to decide whether to take a chance on this new life . . . or keep running from the one she’s always known.

With lovable and flawed characters, an evocative setting, and friendships to treasure, A Constellation of Roses is the perfect companion to Miranda Asebedo’s debut novel The Deepest Roots.

For a while, I’ve been in a kind of reading slump? It hasn’t exactly been a slump because I’ve been wanting to read, I also just….haven’t. But when I picked up A Constellation of Roses to read for today’s review, it wasn’t as if a light was just suddenly turned on. It was as if I’d returned *home*. And this book made it so easy to feel at home. It dealt with hard topics, yes, but it wasn’t in some kind of fake, put-it-all-in, meet-a-quota kind of way, it was in a way that felt natural and real and authentic. I learned and I just felt in such a way that was absolutely fantastic and wonderful. The characters were multifaceted and interesting, and, more importantly, the plot was, and I don’t mean this lightly, some of the best I’ve read in a contemporary in a long time. Seriously, I could not put down this book willingly (side-eyes classes; I was so enamored by the entirety of this book and just ajdjsahaka I freaking loved it!!!!

Oh, and btw, if you’ve read books by Emma Mills, A Constellation of Roses felt quite similar/in the same vein so I would definitely recommend ACOR if you’re an Emma Mills fan.

All in all, I’ve nothing but good things to say about A Constellation of Roses and I definitely think everyone should read the book, period. To get your hands on the book, check out Amazon, Kindle, B&N, iBooks, Google Books, Kobo, The Book Depository, or, of course, request it from your local library if possible!

The best way to get A Constellation of Roses, though? By entering into a giveaway for it! Win a copy of A CONSTELLATION OF ROSES by Miranda Asebedo (INT). Good luck!

Eight Will Fall by Sarah Harian – Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly bookish meme created by Breaking The Spine to highlight some of the upcoming books you can’t wait to read!

Eight Will FallSummary, courtesy of Goodreads: “In a land where magic is outlawed, eight criminals led by seventeen-year-old Larkin are sent on a mission to kill an ancient evil that plagues their kingdom. Descending into an underground realm full of unspeakable horrors, Larkin and her party must use their forbidden magic to survive what lies in wait, teeth sharp and jaws deadly. As she fights for her life, Larkin finds a light in Amias, a fellow outlaw with a notorious past. Soon Larkin and Amias realize their fates are entwined. The eight of them were chosen for a reason. But as the dangers multiply and her band of felons are picked off one by one, Larkin must confront a terrible truth: They were never meant to return.”

Why I Can’t Wait:

  • a bunch of teenage criminals banding together? Yes!
  • forbidden magic? Yes!

Catch it on shelves November 26th, 2019!
