Despite my announced blogging hiatus on Twitter (I did not have the time nor the energy to sit down and write a long post as to why I need a quick break from blogging, if I’m being honest), I am momentarily back to introduce to y’all an upcoming YA fantasy debut that is guaranteed to knock your
adorably printed socks off! And guess what?
Your favorite Southeast Asian girl is organizing another blog tour for this fantastical beauty of a book! Personally, I don’t think this debut has reached the radars of most readers and book bloggers so I’m hoping to change that. I can’t wait for all of you to learn more about A Shifting of Stars and its incredible author!
Before I forget, if you want to be among the first to know about the tours organized by Caffeine Book Tours, then sign up as a coffee bean to receive sign-up invitations directly in your email inbox! Plus, coffee beans get a really adorable membership badge you can showcase on your page or on your website!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publication date: 28 May 2019
Synopsis: A squandering emperor. A handsome stranger. A reluctant heroine. And the ancient magic that will capsize a kingdom.
Seventeen-year-old Meadow Sircha watched her mother die from the wilting sickness. Tormented by the knowledge that the emperor failed to import the medicine that would have saved her, she speaks out at a gathering of villagers, inciting them to boycott his prized gladiator tournament.
But doing so comes at a steep cost.
Arrested as punishment for her impulsive tongue, Meadow finds herself caught up in the kind of danger she’s always tried to avoid. After a chance meeting with an enigmatic boy, she’s propelled on a perilous trek across the outer lands. But she soon unearths a staggering secret: one that will shift her world—and the kingdom—forever.

ABOUT THE BLOG TOUR
The official hashtag for this blog tour is #ShiftingStarsTour, and it will run from July 7th to July 13th. Because I am based in the Philippines, it will follow my country’s time zone (UTC+08:00).
This is a promotional, international blog tour that accommodates all book bloggers, regardless of their location. (However, it should be noted that the slots for this blog tour are limited, and filling out the form does not guarantee anyone a slot.)
Sign-ups will close after a week or so, and selected participants will be contacted via email a few days after. All official tour hosts will receive review copies of A Shifting of Stars and will be expected to post a review for the blog tour. Although this is a review-required tour, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.
For other concerns or inquiries, you are more than welcome to leave a comment!
