Here in the Philippines, we always make jokes about how Christmas starts when the calendar hits the popular “ber” months, specifically, September — and there’s actually a lot of truth in these jokes.

The first day of September marks the beginning of decorating our homes with pretty lights and shamelessly blasting Jose Marie Chan’s hits across all the malls (Jose Marie Chan is our very own patron saint of Christmas, y’all). Even our local newscasters start to count off the days remaining before the highly awaited 25th of December.

All my most highly anticipated releases on one day? (aka why October 15 is the best)

It is no secret that readers and self-confessed bibliophiles have a nice selection of new book releases to look forward to every month — and this has its upsides and downsides.

On the upside, yes, yes, and YES(!!!) to more books on shelves! There is always room in our spacious reader hearts for more stories to love and adore (and, you know, for stories to cause crippling pain to our feelings). But on the downside, new books are a huge, huge temptation that can likewise cause crippling pain to our little wallets. But I digress.

Friends, I haven’t been active in terms of blogging, and it’s all because college has been kicking me in the butt. Oof, what’s new?

But anyway, I am very, very excited to finally introduce this week’s blog tour for The Dragon Warrior by Katie Zhao! Katie is an incredibly dear friend of mine, and I’m so happy to be able to put together a little something to help hype up her debut novel.

read the full synopsis.

After the War of Kinds ravaged the kingdom of Rabu, the Automae, designed to be the playthings of royals, usurped their owners’ estates and bent the human race to their will.

Now Ayla, a human servant rising in the ranks at the House of the Sovereign, dreams of avenging her family’s death…by killing the sovereign’s daughter, Lady Crier.

Crier was Made to be beautiful, flawless, and to carry on her father’s legacy. But that was before her betrothal to the enigmatic Scyre Kinok, before she discovered her father isn’t the benevolent king she once admired, and most importantly, before she met Ayla.

Now, with growing human unrest across the land, pressures from a foreign queen, and an evil new leader on the rise, Crier and Ayla find there may be only one path to love: war.
