Book Humans Interviews: Kayla Reads and Reviews

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 Kayla, the book blogger behind Kayla Reads and Reviews! 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 wanted a place where I could talk about books and escape what was going on at home.

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
Making new friend and discovering new books.

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
Sleepaway Girls by Jenn Calonita. It was the first book I read about sleep away camp that made me be able to put into words how much I love camp.

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

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black – 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!

The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air, #3)Summary, courtesy of Goodreads: “Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power. Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril. Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics. And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…”

All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney – 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!

All-American Muslim GirlSummary, courtesy of Goodreads: “Allie Abraham has it all going for her—she’s a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she’s dating cute, popular, and sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells’s father is Jack Henderson, America’s most famous conservative shock jock…and Allie hasn’t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It’s not like Allie’s religion is a secret, exactly. It’s just that her parents don’t practice and raised her to keep her Islamic heritage to herself. But as Allie witnesses ever-growing Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she begins to embrace her faith—studying it, practicing it, and facing hatred and misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the façade of the “perfect” all-American girl? What does it mean to be a “Good Muslim?” And can a Muslim girl in America ever truly fit in?”

Deadly Little Scandals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – Blog Tour

Deadly Little Scandals Blog Tour

Deadly Little ScandalsHello everyone! Today, I am partnering with Rockstar Book Tours and Jennifer Lynn Barnes to spotlight her new book, Deadly Little Scandals, which actually comes out today! I loved the first book, Little White Lies, and really I love any book by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – y’all she has a way with words that’s beyond gifted, it’s a blessing – and I’m so excited to read her newest book! In the meantime, here’s my spotlight of the book:

First, I took to Goodreads for the synopsis:

Reluctant debutante Sawyer Taft joined Southern high society for one reason and one reason alone: to identify and locate her biological father. But the answers Sawyer found during her debutante year only left her with more questions and one potentially life-ruining secret. When her cousin Lily ropes her into pledging a mysterious, elite, and all-female secret society called the White Gloves, Sawyer soon discovers that someone in the group’s ranks may have the answers she’s looking for. Things are looking up… until Sawyer and the White Gloves make a disturbing discovery near the family’s summer home–and uncover a twisted secret, decades in the making. No one is quite who they seem to be.

Doesn’t that just sound so interesting!? I loveeeee society books and, like I said earlier, anything by Jennifer Lynn Barnes so I’m overall just really freaking excited to read Deadly Little Scandals! If you too are excited – which I feel like you would be considering ^^^^^^ – and thinking “how can I get my hands on this blessing of a book?” Well, the answer is you get it from AmazonKindleB&NiBooksKoboThe Book Depository, or, of course, by requesting it from your local library if possible!
