A Pause on Blogging

Hi All,

I know it’s been awhile. I think what made it so long since I last posted was because of how busy I got. As much as I love blogging about books and telling everyone about the latest ones that I love– it all became a bit much.

Rather than cutting this out of my life entirely, I encourage you to follow me on my Bookstagram @thewrittenadventure or on my Goodreads. I promise to be much more active there (and be able to dedicate more time to writing and perfecting reviews.)

For publicists, authors, and publishers, please feel free to still reach out to my email: thewrittenadventure@gmail.com. I’d still love to work with you on promoting books.

There might come a time where I begin to start blogging again, but as of right now, I think scaling back will work better for me. Thank you for understanding and I look forward to seeing you all on Goodreads and Instagram!

Masterpost for Query Letters

Hey everyone, long time no post, right? I’ve been busy at Graduate school with my assistantship and my new internship.

However, through these opportunities and past ones, I’ve learned a lot about queries and how to write (and not write) them. Below, to help all of you writers out, I have collected a master post for query letters. That is, a bunch of links to click on that’ll take you to other posts that give you advice on how to query. Read More »

Book Review: Terror is Our Business: Dana Roberts’ Casebook of Horrors

Author: Joe and Kasey Lansdale

Stars: 4/5
Recommended to: fans of paranormal stories, and paranormal fiction fans

I was reached out to by Lauren from Smith Publicity to read two novels from their authors. The first one I started, because it really piqued my interest, was Terror is Our Business: Dana Roberts’ Casebook of Horrors.  Written in the third person, this novel is very unique from others that I have read in the past. As an avid fan of paranormal events, and a huge fan of shows like Ghost Adventures, I knew that I had to read this.Read More »

They now face a difficult question: Is the world capable of operating without lies, or are lies what hold it together?Read More »

Recommended to: fans of fiction, fans of feminist main characters
To Be Published On: July 31st, 2018

This book was utterly amazing and I need the sequel right this second. I read this book in one day (around 3/4 hours) and oh my goodness, I wish I could wipe my brain and read it all over again from the start. When Hunger Games meets Shadow and Bone, you get Grace and Fury.

Book Review: The Romanov Empress

Author: C.W Gortner
Stars: 4/5
Recommended to: Fans of the Romanovs, and historical fiction fans

On a whim, I clicked the “wish for it” button on Netgalley, soon after I received an email telling me that my wish was granted.

Though I have always been infatuated with the tale of Anastasia, I didn’t know much about her grandmother, The Dowager Empress. This novel goes through the various stages that Maria Feodorovna goes through. First, her childhood as a Danish girl, her engagement with the Russian royalty, and her marriage, and then as the Empress, watching over her children as they take on their own roles.Read More »
