The Diamond Village Blog Tour // TWO character reveals + schedule!

Hello, loves!

As you might have noticed, this post will be part of the blog tour introducing The Diamond Villagea new collaboration blog that I ‘created’ (more like ‘thought about it one fine day and decided it MUST become something’) with the help of five other amazing bloggers- El (bestie, luv you ❤ (and your accent)), Ash (I GUESSED IT RIGHT HAHA *y’all muggles won’t know what we’re talking about*), Emma (After was a complete mess! I’m glad we could suffer through it together hehe), Ju (omg who is this wonderous photographer?? a pigeon? a robin? a DODO?), and, of course, the one and only Mukta (kween of design, utter KWEEN- you are literally a goddess with art).

As you might have noticed from my ramblings, these bloggers are PRECIOUS and the funniest and coolest and most sincere group I could have worked with *cries happy tears*.

But enough about that- you’re all wondering, what the heck is The Diamond Village? Well, fear not, my friends- I have a simple description taken directly from our home page:

The Diamond Village is a fantasy-themed blog with a storyline and interactive, adorable characters who strive to put a smile on your face whenever we can! Our storyline shows how our characters progress through their lives in the bright Village, the challenges they face, but, most importantly, how they overcome them with kindness and intelligence.

Before you check out our latest posts, here’s what you should know: our Village Leader, Mara, posts our storyline-related content once a month so don’t be too worried about not understanding what’s going on. She’ll re-cap what happened previously so you’re not too confused. The rest of the content will be from our other Villagers and about all your favorite topics- books, nature, arts & crafts, news, representation- and with our same cozy and inclusive atmosphere.

So join us on this whirlwind ride of fun and kindness, magic and mayhem, will you? Go check out our posts and don’t forget to follow the blog so you won’t miss any!

Tarnished Are The Stars // review

Hey lovely!

Before we get on with the post, WHOA.

I reached 200 followers yesterday night- two-hundred!! I can’t believe that so many people have read my posts and thought them worthwhile. Thank you so much for making my blog journey so fulfilling!

Welp, on to the post!

Here I am, back with another blog tour (don’t worry, the onslaught of blog tours is over ~for now~) and woah, I’m impressed! Cue another huge ranting post!

First off, can we talk about how the cover is actually so neat?? I love love love the nut-and-bolt-metal font and the constellations– THANK YOU to FFBC and Scholastic for the beautiful book in my mail!

Before we get on to the book, here’s the synopsis (in my words, and spoiler free).

Anna, a teen girl living in a secluded, hidden town off the coast of the Settlement, a gated area on the planet where everyone else lived, has a secret: not only does she have an illegal mechanical heart, banned by the Commissioner, but she sells and makes those illegal parts to help out her clients, going under the name of ‘The Technician’.

Nathaniel, the Commissioner’s son, desperately wants to prove to his father that he is worthy of being his heir, and that he is worthy enough to outgrow his shadow that is him being the living proof of everything his father fought to eliminate. The obvious way? Capture the Technician, a tyrant who sneaks around and has never managed to be found.

Eliza, who lives out in space with the nobles and the Queen, has dedicated her life to the Queen’s services by charming and sweet-talking the liars and criminals, turning them into the Queen as soon as she can. She’s built her life off of secrets and lies, so her dream of becoming the Queen’s successor comes crashing down when she’s sent to the planet to meet her betrothed, whom she struggles not to hate for his part in ruining her dreams– and, while she’s at it, discover the Commissioner’s secrets.

When these three figures all meet, it happens in an explosion of stars, steel, and secrets, making each of them question what their world has taught them and what they believe in. Is the preservation of a community’s lifestyle worth human lives?
