I hope you’re not tired of my sign-up forms yet because I have just another exciting news for you!
I am co-hosting the international blog tour for Shannon Price’s YA debut novel, A Thousand Fires, with Karlita @ Tale Out Loud and we’re partnering with TOR Teen!
This tour is a little different for me because it’s my first time co-hosting a blog tour, first time partnering with TOR Teen and first time hosting a bookstagram tour as well.
Yep, there’s a blog and a bookstagram tour. The bookstagram tour is like an extension of the blog tour. They will run at the same time and you can participate in both or either of them. However, because Ate Karlita and I lives in the Philippines, the bookstagram tour is only open to Filipino bloggers.
Well, are you a fan of Greek mythology? The Iliad? Gangster stories? Retellings? Whatever the answer is, check out the book and tour info below!
About the Book
Title: A Thousand Fires
Author: Shannon Price
Publisher: TOR Teen
Publishing Date: November 5th 2019
Age Category & Genre: YA Contemporary, Retelling
Synopsis: Shannon Price’s A Thousand Fires is a breakout contemporary debut―think The Outsiders meets The Iliad―that’s perfect for fans of Courtney Summers and Veronica Roth.
10 Years. 3 Gangs. 1 Girl’s Epic Quest…
An extraordinary debut set in an alternate San Francisco and inspired by The Iliad…
Valerie Simons knows the gangs are dangerous—her little brother was shot and killed by the Boars two years ago.
Still, nothing will sway Valerie from wanting to join the elite and beautiful Herons and find her brother’s killer. It doesn’t hurt that her best friend Matthew is slated to become a Heron leader—and she’d follow him to the ends of the earth.
Then Valerie is recruited by the mysterious Stags when their volatile, provocative, and beyond charismatic leader Jax promises to help her get revenge. Torn between old love and new loyalty, Valerie races to finish the mission that got her into the gangs.
But no one truly wins the Wars.
