Blog Tour: Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz (Excerpt)

TheMidnightDanceTourBanner-2

I was selected to participate in a blog tour for Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz with an except from the book.

TMDWhen the music stops, the dance begins.

Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and eleven other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate – and in the only life Penny has never known.

But when flashes of memories, memories of a life very different from the one she thinks she’s been leading, start to appear, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book That’s Worth the Hype

Book Traveling Thursdays - A Hyped Book That Was Totally Worth ItBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is “a book that was worth the hype” and for me, that was definitely Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley.  It may be because I am a dog person, but I think this book is very heartfelt.

You don’t need to be a dog lover to like this book, it’s really just a great story, and if you haven’t checked it out I highly recommend it.

Now, onto the covers!

The Blogger Aesthetic Tag

I saw this over at The Girl Who Reads Too Much and it really spoke to my soul at the moment so I thought I would steal it seems like a fun concept and I am on a bit of a Pinterest binge with a craving for beautiful images.

The Blogger Aesthetic Tag which was created by Liam @Hey Ashers. I really loved the concept of this tag:

Bloggers are (let’s just be honest here) the absolute best. There’s so much diversity and personality and creativity in this community—and what better way to celebrate those things than by spending the next twelve hours of our lives hunting down and collaging the images that best reflect our individual awesomeness? 

The Rules:

  • Collect any number of images that you feel represent you as a person—your personality, aspirations, favorite things, anything at all that makes you you.
  • Put your chosen images together into a collage of whatever size and shape you find pleasing.
  • Share your masterpiece with everyone, in all the places.
  • Maybe nominate other bloggers as a way to tell them, “Hey, you, I think you’re awesome, and we should celebrate that awesomeness.”
  • Share these rules (and maybe the below tips, if you’re feeling helpful).

So, here we go! Let’s see the images that I picked! My blog tends to run mostly neutral with a lot of photos, so for this exercise, I went with three colors I was drawn to, and that’s tangerine orange, flamingo pink, and oceanside blue.
