Myth Debunked: YA Edition

~
So. Currently, I'm slightly sickish. I have a sore throat and I've been feeling pretty lazy, or rather, lazier. In the rare instances I do get sick, my mom enjoys pouncing on me, all like: "See, I told you? See, see, see? I told you, you should've worn your coat/scarf/earmuffs/gloves on a perfectly normal day."

Now, I'm eating Combos and I present to you: a new blog feature. Myth Debunked: where I summarize books - some badly, some not - and leave you either clueless, shaking an annoyed fist or praising my talent. The latter is unlikely. Sound off!

  1. BAHAHA. This is absolutely hilarious. I think that's why it's so important to take blurbs into consideration, but not to rely on them fully. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! ♥

  2. I. Love. This. I really hope you are feeling better, but we NEED more of these!! I am in love! My favorite:
    "THE STORY: Black Widow is a fucking badass.

    TRUTH REVEALED: She isn’t."

    BWHAHAHHA DYING. Also, that girl IS #bungoals. And Anne & Henry looks SO BAD. I am usually not good at figuring out which books will kind of suck hard, but Anne & Henry is one I predicted from the start, because that cover is the actual worst and how do I hate a fake guy on a cover? But I do. I really do.

    I will be needing LOTS more of these, please and thank you :D

    1. I am, thank you! I think it was a one-day thing tbh. Now, I'm just a little sniffly.

      Omg you did??? I hadn't seen it coming, actually! Everyone was leaving 3-stars & I had such hope, still. I love the Anne & Henry cover! The guy who models Henry DOES looks a little douche-y, though.

      ;)

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike comes a truly original new novel—Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it’s the eighteenth century and an almost-queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life.

The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it’s about to become a very beautiful prison.

When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play . . . blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will mar…

Alexandria Prep is about to be exposed.

Senior spring was supposed to mean sleeping through class and partying with friends. But for Anna Soler, it’s going to be a lonely road. She’s just been dumped by her perfect basketball star boyfriend—with no explanation. Anna’s closest friends, the real ones she abandoned while dating him, are ignoring her. The endearing boy she’s always had a complicated friendship with is almost too sympathetic.

But suddenly Anna isn’t the only one whose life has been upended. Someone is determined to knock the kings and queens of the school off their thrones: one by one, their phones get hacked and their personal messages and photos are leaked. At first it’s funny—people love watching the dirty private lives of those they envy become all too public.
