I’m ecstatic to finally announce the first blog tour I am hosting for the year 2019! I’ve been keeping this news inside me for months and I’m REALLY EXCITED to share this with you.
Last year, I hosted the international blog tour for The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. The Poet X is one of my best 2018 reads. I REALLY LOVED IT (If you cannot tell yet). Ever since, I promised myself to read every novel Elizabeth Acevedo will publish. So when the news of her upcoming book, With the Fire on High came out, I knew I had to grab this opportunity. To share her new book to the world, especially help get it to the right hands of those readers who are being represented in WTFH are important.
If you are curious or interested on this blog tour, carry on reading.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: With the Fire on High
Author: Elizabeth Acevedo
Publishing Date: May 7, 2019
Genre: YA Contemporary
Synopsis: With her daughter to care for and her abuela to help support, high school senior Emoni Santiago has to make the tough decisions, and do what must be done. The one place she can let her responsibilities go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Still, she knows she doesn’t have enough time for her school’s new culinary arts class, doesn’t have the money for the class’s trip to Spain — and shouldn’t still be dreaming of someday working in a real kitchen. But even with all the rules she has for her life — and all the rules everyone expects her to play by — once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free.
ABOUT THE BLOG TOUR
This is an international blog tour which will be held from April 22 to May 10, 2019, weekdays only, with 3 bloggers a day.
Physical galleys will be provided by the publisher as long as it is feasible for the publisher to ship to your country. However, if you want to read an egalley instead, you can also do so.
Two giveaways will be held on the tour, a giveaway of a book and a SURPRISE one. Hence, being able to post Rafflecopter link on your blog is important.
This is a diverse and own voices book. And it is highly important for me, as the blog tour organizer, for these ARCs to be placed on the right hands of own voices reviewers. So, if you yourself identify with any of the following or knows a book blogger who does, I hope you’ll consider signing up and sharing this to your friend. Hearing your voices is important. ❤
- Black American
- Afro-Puerto Rican
- Teen/single mother
- Low income
Do not worry, if you are not an own voices reviewer and just want to help promote diverse books like yours truly, you can still sign-up.
Signing up does not guarantee a spot on the tour.
