Updates, Future Features, Events and Ebook Month!

This is to let you all know that I’m still alive. My internet connection got really messed up! I had no internet for two days. Last Sunday, I was lucky enough to get a few hours so I could post the kick-off of The Chosen Tour. I think I would really be ashamed if I wasn’t able to post that!

I officially came back to the virtual world with a review. It’s my review ofTiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck.

This post is not just about telling you that I’m still alive, of course. I’m here to tell you four things that will be stirring, churning here at Fragments of Life for the next couple of months.

#1: July and August are blog tour months for me. I’m participating in 7 blog tours.

#2: September is S&S Galley Grab and Netgalley month!

1st week: S&S Galley Grab Week
2nd – 4th weeks: Netgalley Weeks

With the absence of an ebook reader, I’ve fallen way behind my ebook reading schedule. I have lots of ebooks from S&S and Netgalley. Now that school started, I’ve been really struggling with my massive ebook TBR pile. This month, Kai from Amaterasu Reads and I will try to read the ebooks in out TBR list.

Here are the ebooks that I’m hoping to finish in September:

1. Fury by Elizabeth Miles
2. The Unwanteds by Lisa Mcmann
3. Witchlanders by Lena Coakley
4. Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
5. The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
6. The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle
7. Outside In by Maria V. Snyder
8. The Mephisto Covenant by trinity Faegen
9. Misfit by Jon Skovron
10. Mercy by Rebecca Lim
11. Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
12. Dark Parties by Sara Grant
13. Deviant by Adrian McKinty
14. Putting Makeup on Dead People by Jen Violi
15. Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier

#3: Spotted: Interviews and Giveaways

I’d like everyone to know that I’m also working with…7 to 8 authors that I will interview or have as a guest here at the blog. They will be talking about their books, their writing experience, their works to come and their inspirations. Of course, there will be giveaways too!

Who are the authors? That will be a surprise.

#4: Dystopian Domination is OVER!

There were lots of entries! Lots of people wanted to win! Give me a few days and by the end of this week, I’ll have the name of the super lucky winner who will get the signed ARC of Legend (Did I mention how much it pains me to part with it?) and copies of the first two books of Julie Bertagna’s dystopian series!



  1. I'm looking forward on your review Fury by Elizabeth Miles. :)

  2. I'm so sad that Dystopian Domination is over :( But I can't wait for next years!! Thanks so much for hosting it! It was soo fun! :)

  3. So many blog tours! Can't wait to see your tour stops.

  4. Whoa, talk about a busy schedule! I'm so looking forward to reading all these posts, sounds like it's going to be an awesome few months here on Fragments of Life! Oooh eager to see who these surprise authors are.

    And yay your internet is fixed!!

  5. Good luck with school & I can't wait to see all your new reviews!

  6. I'm reading Deviant by Adrian McKinty right now. It's okay so far. Haven't gotten too far yet.
