Meet Me in Outer Space by Melinda Grace – Blog Tour [Review and Giveaway]

Meet Me in Outer Space
Melinda Grace
(Swoon Reads)
Publication date: March 12th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Smart and unflinching, this #OwnVoices debut contemporary novel stars an ambitious college student who refuses to be defined by her central auditory processing disorder.

Edie Kits has a learning disability. Well, not a learning disability exactly, but a disability that impacts her learning. It isn’t visible, it isn’t obvious, and it isn’t something she likes to advertise.

And for three semesters of college, her hard work and perseverance have carried her through. Edie thinks she has her disability under control until she meets her match with a French 102 course and a professor unwilling to help her out.

Edie finds herself caught between getting the help she needs and convincing her professor that she isn’t looking for an easy out. Luckily for Edie, she has an amazing best friend, Serena, who is willing to stitch together a plan to ensure Edie’s success. And then there’s Hudson, the badly dressed but undoubtedly adorable TA in her French class who finds himself pulled into her orbit…

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Meet Me in Outer Space is a sweet, heartachingly real story of love and college life by debut author Melinda Grace

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan – Book Review

girls of paper and fire I was excited to kick off my first month as a Words & Whimsy mod by reading a book that had been on my TBR for far too long – Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. I received an arc of this in exchange for an honest review, and I’m excited to say I really enjoyed it!

While it’s not a perfect book by any means, it was an enjoyable read and a great new fantasy. However, I do want to point out that there are trigger warnings for this book. If you’re sensitive to anything like that, I highly recommend you look up the trigger warnings before reading.
