Happy Book Birthday to The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee! I really really want to read this book, but my reading schedule was sadly filled to the brim by the time I found out about this epicness! Since I’ll be reading it later this year (most likely), and therefore won’t be able to share my thoughts on it with you guys, I thought the least I could do is take part in the release blitz!
Is anyone else excited for the film release of the first Dark Tower movie? Because I know that I sure am! While I have never read the books, I always found that something drew me to them whenever I saw them at a book store. I would always stop and look the books over, especially once they were being sold in a box set. One of my local book stores had a really good sale on the box set of all of the Dark Tower books, and now I really regret not going for it! Anyone else have moments like that? I’ve been meaning to read Stephen King for years! But because in my head I knew him as an author of some of the most frightening horror stories on earth, I kind of avoided all of his books in stead. This series might change that for me though!

Summary: Leam Holt has done the unthinkable. He’s saved Harbing from utter destruction by consuming the toxin that was intended for the entire town and he’s rescued Eloa’s father from a prison cell under Darkness Headquarters.
But at what cost? Stricken by the poison and unable to remember who he is or access his Light side, Leam is captured by the evil Gideon and brought in for interrogation and training. Surrounded by Darkness, Leam revels in his undiluted Dark power and connects with other violent and corrupt kids, especially the bold and gorgeous Rylan. Still, Leam tries to piece together memories about his past, including those of Eloa, who he discovers is in grave danger.
While Sebastian and the forces of Light work to free Leam from the grasp of the poison and Gideon, the world is thrown into turmoil from exposure to the toxin. The battle for control over the prospect, the person who will lead the world into complete Darkness or Light, is heating up, and Leam’s role in the war grows murkier.
