Day 12: The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Helig + The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

Hello everyone! Today is the last and final day of our 12 Days of Diverse Reads! Since it's the last day, I decided to feature two books. Today, you will learn about (or relearn) The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Helig and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Plus, they both release on the same day!


The Ship Beyond Time (The Girl From Everywhere #2)
Author: Heidi Helig
Publishing Date: February 28, 2017
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Links: Goodreads | Amazon

The breathtaking sequel to the acclaimed The Girl from Everywhere. Nix has escaped her past, but when the person she loves most is at risk, even the daughter of a time traveler may not be able to outrun her fate—no matter where she goes. Fans of Rae Carson, Alexandra Bracken, and Outlander will fall hard for Heidi Heilig’s sweeping fantasy.

Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother—and possibly erase Nix’s existence—and Nix’s future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father?

Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems—not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices. Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. But at the center of this adventure are the extraordinary, multifaceted, and multicultural characters that leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. The sequel—and conclusion—to the indie darling The Girl from Everywhere will be devoured by fans of Rachel Hartman and Maggie Stiefvater. Includes black-and-white maps. 


The Hate U Give
Author: Angie Thomas
Publishing Date: February 28, 2017
Publisher: Balzar + Bray
Links: Goodreads | Amazon

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice. Movie rights have been sold to Fox, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) to star.

Fangirl Friday: Happy New Year + RIP George, Carrie & Debbie


I want to start off with a moment of silence for George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds who passed away this week. It was a true devastation for everyone. Three big icons died and everyone got affected in some way. I grew up listening to George's classic, Last Christmas, on the radio during this time of year. I grew up watching Star Wars with Fisher portraying the marvelous character Princess Leia. I grew up watching Debbie as Aggie Cromwell in the famous Halloweentown movies and loved her as Cathy Seldon in Singin' in the Rain. May they rest in peace.


Shadowhunters will air season 2 starting this Monday on January 2 on Freeform 8/7c. I will surely watch that and will review the episode on next week's Fangirl Friday post like I did the first season.



I just want to say thank you for reading my posts every Friday this year! I truly appreciate it and I truly enjoyed writing them. I will certainly continue this segment next year. I hope you spend New Years with family and friends you cherish. I certainly will. I hope you guys remember the positives and learn from the negatives this year. Not every year is perfect. This year honestly was not.

Thank you once again. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Happy New Year!

Day 11: The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana (12 Days of Diverse Reads)


For Day 11, I chose an Indian Folklore Novel that I hope you will like! This sounds like a phenomenal read! 12 Days of Diverse Reads is when we feature diverse books that will be released in 2017.

Title: The Library of Fates
Author: Aditi Khorana
Release Date: July 18, 2017
Synopsis: A romantic coming-of-age fantasy tale steeped in Indian folklore, perfect for fans of The Star-Touched Queen and The Wrath and the Dawn

No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn't enough.

The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.

Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?

Sophia's 2016 Year In Review (AKA The Year She Wants to Erase, If You Want Complete Honesty)

Happy end of the year! Time to pack up the bad memories, cherish the good ones and zoom on to the next year in the hopes for a better 2017.

2016 has been an emotional ride for me. An extremely emotional ride for me, which poor Lupe had to deal with - erm... support - for a good part of the year. Here's a bit of a rundown of the things that happened in 2016, both on and off Bookwyrming Thoughts.

But before we move on...

On the Blog

  • We've added on a new coblogger! Meet Anelise, who now hails as the youngest blogger on the team.
  • Unfortunately, Ella has decided to leave Bookwyrming Thoughts. It is sad to part ways, but I really enjoyed having her as a coblogger for the past two years (she has some of the best GIFs and writing voices out in the blogging world! Best wishes to Ella as she continues her endeavors in blogging and beyond. <3
  • We also launched our first trial run in our search for the newest addition, which was a completely different experience for all of us involved.
    • We're not going to be opening up permanent spots anytime soon. But if anyone wants to guest post or review (or both!), we're all eyes.
  • Bookwyrming Thoughts launched its new design. Unlike the last two or three designs, we're using a pre-made template. It's not too shabby if you want our opinions.
    • We have a new header too. And a new slogan.
  • I've been updating past posts so it goes well with the new look. I've also been fixing broken links, which there are hundreds of them in the blog alone... It's a slow and tedious progress but heh. Might as well. But only when I have nothing better to do on the computer.
    • Earlier this year, we lost GFC. It's back now, so that's an option! We also lost a lot of peeps in the process, but Blogger might have done some clean up or something. Here's a random goal of reaching back to 400 in 2017.
    • Novel Newcomers launched for the first time ever! Nori and I procrastinated a few times this year, but we didn't too badly... I mean, we tried. Here's to better luck in next year's event.
      • If you're a book blogger who started this year, be sure to sign up! I'd love to have you!
    • We're in the process of moving from Feedburner to MailChimp and you can choose from receiving posts about Fangirl Friday only or all of our blog posts. This is currently a work in progress, but we hope to roll it out next year.
    GIF INTERVENTION
    Really, I don't want to bore you. Have a cake. Dancing cakes. There might be a theme going on here, but I never noticed until now.

      Off the Blog

      • Some of you know that I also contribute to In Wonderland. Unfortunately, due to some events that have come up in my life... I have left the team as of July, shortly after my hiatus post.
      • So that event had something to do with a guy, which I've blocked as of the past few months and unfortunately, it is inevitable for us not to cross paths, like... ever. Because we live literally five minutes from each other. Which is probably the universe's way of laughing at both of us.
        • I still say he's a good person in general. But maybe it's because I'm too soft hearted, although I won't deny that both of us did something wrong and it's extremely complicated. I did stop three people from attempting murder, though (aka sending him a message to make sure he doesn't dare cross paths with me or he'll be sorry). On to more pleasant thoughts.
        • Of course a guy had to be involved. As if I didn't have enough on my plate already...
      • Lupe and I graduated high school. She got to curl my hair and I swear, she was jumping off her bedroom walls when she did that. I mean, she's always wanted to do that in our 7+ years of friendship. It all started when we were little 12-year-olds...
        • We're freshlings! College freshlings! Yay.... I envy Lupe a little because she doesn't deal with speed bumps on a daily basis. Lucky duck.
        • On the bright side, the college I go to recently got verified on Twitter and they're advocates for diversity, which is the greatest thing ever. I, however, cannot say the same about the students. (Really, giving me a pointed look while saying it's going to be a great four years within 10 minutes of meeting me is a fantastic way to make me dislike someone immediately. I'll never tell it to their face, though.)
          • Sometimes I do want to go try my attempt at verification, but then I realize I probably don't have enough credentials.
      • I've created a personal website. I haven't done too much yet, but I'm hoping to get started on uploading some of my work on there soon. Take a gander if you'd like.
        • You might notice a name change. I did it because back when I first started BWT, I chose to use a pen name for safety reasons. It's to bridge the gap between my real name and pen name.
        • Some have been asking if they should start calling me by my actual first name. No, you do not. It is completely optional. Just know that when you see either name, it's most likely the same person (and then there's a Sophia Lin who is some sort of film producer... that's not me - I'm too low for that, and I'll probably have better luck as a narrator despite the amount of actors in my family)
        • In fact, most are comfortable with Sophia.
      • I got a second job! As if I don't have enough on my shoulders already... but it pays the bills so...
      • I occasionally exist on Medium - you can find some of the articles I've written so far, which is few and far between.
      GIF INTERVENTION
      I probably come across as a blogger who is really bored and attempting to entertain. But who's excited for the live action Mulan movie? (I mean, as long as the cast is primarily Asian...)

      Favorite Posts on the Blog

        All righty. Bookwyrming Thoughts has been slacking this year, but I'm carrying on to bring up some of my favorite posts of the entire year.
        How has everyone else's year been like? And if want our goals and resolutions for the new year, be sure to hop on by next year!

        And one final GIF....

        Day 10: I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Day 10! 12 Days of Diverse Reads is what it is - we're featuring 12 diverse books being published in 2017 right here at Bookwyrming Thoughts! (It was fun researching all of the books on Goodreads, honestly, but it really did not help my TBR pile.)

        Today's feature is yet another fictional version of me. One of them can be found in Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame and another in The Unforgettables by G.L. Thomas. There is obviously an ironic theme going on here because I'm not generally a fan of contemporary yet all three are... contemporary.

        Let's just say this: I am a blind bat in the romance department. I will continue to be suspicious of the intentions of the unfortunate guy who dares to hope for more with me. I also scare most guys away, but I've been told I look somewhat intimidating. Good. Maybe I'll stop being hit on.


        I Believe in a Thing Called Love
        Author: Maurene Goo
        Publication Date: May 30, 2017
        Publisher: Farrar, Staus, and Giroux

        Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and has never had a B in her entire life. She's for sure going to Stanford. But—she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation-magnet whose botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends. So when the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides to tackle her flirting failures with the same zest she’s applied to everything else in her life. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has been obsessively watching for years—where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. It's a simple formula, and Desi is a quick study. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos—and boat rescues, love triangles, and fake car crashes ensue. But when the fun and games turn to true feels, Desi finds out that real love is about way more than just drama.

        Day 9: A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Hello guys! In case you haven't noticed (how could you not?), we are doing this 12 Days of Diverse Reads thing. Hopefully you know what this is so I won't have to explain again, but just in case you don't know, for the rest of 2016 we are featuring some of our most anticipated diverse novels coming out in 2016 (oh, I just explained again. Oh well). So today, I'm featuring the sequel to The Star-Touched Queen, which by the way, is an amazing (diverse) story that came out this year. Let's get on with today's book!


        A Crown of Wishes (The Star-Touched Queen #2)
        Author: Roshani Chokshi
        Publishing Date: March 28, 2017
        Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
        Links: Goodreads | Amazon

        Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.

        Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.

        Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.

But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

        Day 7: Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Happy Kwanzaa! (I always tend to add an extra a for some reason and I feel bad for doing this after I see that little red squiggle.)

        It is Day 7 of the 12 Days of Diverse Reads! While I have never read a book by Renée Ahdieh, I'm definitely curious about this one because apparently there is a Mulan mashup. And I adore Mulan, so... I'm already caught by within the flames. Pun intended, guys.


        Flames in the Mist #1
        Author: Renée Ahdieh
        Publication Date: May 2, 2017
        Publisher: G.P. Putman's Sons Books for Young Readers

        The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known her place—she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands. At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto Raiden, the son of the emperor's favorite consort—a political marriage that will elevate her family's standing. But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly escapes a bloody ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace.

        Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko sets out to infiltrate the ranks of the Black Clan, determined to track down the person responsible for the target on her back. But she's quickly captured and taken to the Black Clan’s secret hideout, where she meets their leader, the rebel ronin Takeda Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, his best friend Okami. Still believing her to be a boy, Ranmaru and Okami eventually warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. As Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets, of betrayal and murder, which will force her to question everything she's ever known.

        Entertaining Christmas GIFs

        MERRY CHRISMAS!
        I'm no fan of Harry Styles, but I thought it was kind of funny to wear ornaments as earrings.

        Now on to the funnies and other random Christmas related GIFs.
        JINGLE BELLS JINGLE BELLS. Okay, I'd really rather not sing loudly.

        Admit it: we've all been through this.

        Remember the snowpocalyse, guys? That was three weeks of break. And then we had to come back on a Friday....

        And that, of course, will be all for the Christmas GIFs this year. Have a fabulous Christmas, and don't be the Grinch!

        Day 6: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Hello! Today is day 6 of our 12 Days of Diverse Reads thingy. In case you don't know what that is, it's something we are doing for the rest of 2016 and every day we are featuring a diverse novel being published in 2017. The book I'm featuring today is something I think I actually heard about from Twitter. I looked it up, read the blurb, and practically fell in love. This sounds like an amazing book and I would definitely love to read it when it comes out. I've gotta confess though. 

        I've never read a story that includes LGBT+ in it. I feel ashamed of myself and I definitely want to change that. So, next year I hope to read more books with LGBT+ in it (more diverse books in general).

        Okay, enough about me. Let's get to the actual book now!


        The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
        Author: Mackenzi Lee
        Publishing Date: June 20, 2017
        Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
        Links: Goodreads | Amazon

        An unforgettable tale of two friends on their Grand Tour of 18th-century Europe who stumble upon a magical artifact that leads them from Paris to Venice in a dangerous manhunt, fighting pirates, highwaymen, and their feelings for each other along the way.

        Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

        But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

        Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

        Witty, romantic, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a sumptuous romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.

        Day 5: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (12 Days Of Diverse Reads)


        It's day 5 of the 12 Days of Diverse Reads and I'm excited to share this novel! For 12 days we give attention to diverse books everyday for 12 days that will be released in 2017! Enjoy this novel that I chose to share with you on day 5!

        Title: When Dimple Met Rishi
        Author: Sandhya Menon
        Release Date: May 30, 2017
        Synopsis: A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married. 

        Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right? 

        Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself. 

        The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not? 

        Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

        Fangirl Friday: Blade Runner 2049 + A Cure For Wellness trailers!


        HO HO HO! Ok, let's be honest. I'm too broke to give out presents and I don't have a magical sleigh with some magical reindeer that will take me across the world. What I DO have is some action/creepy movie trailer and announcement to provide for you today!

        Blade Runner 2049



        Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, and HARRISON FORD!!! You guys know how much I love him. I cant wait to see him on the big screen next year! This film will be released on October 6, 2017.

        A Cure For Wellness

        Now. Before you watch this trailer, I would just like to advice that this film is rated R and VERY creepy. So watch this at your own risk if you don't like watching anything creepy. I have warned you!


        I've been seeing this trailer everywhere and it's intriguing, but I don't have the guts to go watch this alone. I might just grab Sophia to go see this with me. *evil laugh* This film will be released on February 17, 2017.

        Day 4: Noteworthy by Riley Redgate (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Diverse Reads! There's only two more days until Christmas for those who celebrate the holiday!

        Today, I'm featuring something that is somewhat related to my own self... because I have indeed done choir in my lifetime.
        Lupe: I WANT TO HEAR YOU SING.
        Me: But my voice is a squeaky little soprano and you might cringe if I actually record myself.
        Lupe: Then do it in PERSON. In the years that we have been friends, I've only seen you do a solo with another person when you were a freshman.
        Lo and behold, Noteworthy by Riley Redgate!


        Noteworthy
        Author: Riley Redgate

        It’s the start of Jordan Sun’s junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts. Unfortunately, she’s an Alto 2, which—in the musical theatre world—is sort of like being a vulture in the wild: She has a spot in the ecosystem, but nobody’s falling over themselves to express their appreciation. So it’s no surprise when she gets shut out of the fall musical for the third year straight.

        Then the school gets a mass email: A spot has opened up in the Sharpshooters, Kensington’s elite a cappella octet. Worshiped ... revered ... all male. Desperate to prove herself, Jordan auditions in her most convincing drag, and it turns out that Jordan Sun, Tenor 1, is exactly what the Sharps are looking for.

        Day 3: Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

        Hello guys! Today is day 3 of our 12 Days of Diverse Reads thingy. If you don't know what that is, for the rest of 2016, we will feature a diverse novel coming out in 2017. Just saying, but might wanna add these to your TBR/Goodreads ;) Today, I'm going to be featuring Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields.

        Poison's Kiss (Poison's Kiss #1)
        Author: Breeana Shields
        Publication Date: January 10, 2017
        Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
        Links: Goodreads | Amazon

        A teenage assassin kills with a single kiss until she is ordered to kill the one boy she loves. This commercial YA fantasy is romantic and addictive—like a poison kiss—and will thrill fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.

        Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It's a miserable life, but being a visha kanya—a poison maiden—is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

        Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she's really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

        This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
