Keeper of the Lost Cities (Giveaway)

June 19, 2019

It's been a hot minute since I've done a blog post, due mostly to real life and the shenanigans that can bring. But I'm really excited about today's post in particular because 1) I'm partnering with Simon & Schuster for a giveaway and 2) it's for a series that both Macky & I are eager to dive into - the middle grade fantasy series Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger. 

If you haven't yet heard about the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, allow me to share a little bit about it! The series centers around main character Sophie Foster, who discovers she's an elf from the Lost Cities. The revelation of her true identity marks the beginning of her adventures. But there's definitely more to Sophie and her past than anyone knows... Praise for the series includes the fact that the heroine is a  fascinatingly complex personality, the story will appeal to girls and boys equally and that there is a huge fanbase on Instagram invested in these characters and their relationships!

Personally, I actually didn't really have this series on my radar until last year (which is incredible considering the fact that there are over one million books in print worldwide). But after hearing about Sophie (who sounds much like Hermione from Harry Potter) and a couple of details here and there about her adventures (which I won't mention for fear of spoilers for anyone who hasn't yet read it), I knew I definitely was adding this series to my TBR. (Macky decided to when he heard that folks who enjoyed The School of Good and Evil series would like this, as he's definitely a fan of those books!)

Summer seems like the perfect time to indulge, as I'm dying to binge read the whole thing! I plan on participating in a summer readalong (aka #KeeperReadAlong) that author Shannon Messenger will be hosting, which started on June 10th and will go through July 29th. Each week is dedicated to a book (in series order), with a kick-off on Mondays, a fan question answered on the following Sunday and additional extras popping up all throughout the week! Plus, it'll get me caught up on the series before Book 8 (aka Legacy) is released on November 5, which is a major bonus.
