With all that being said, my plans for the weekend are simple. Aside from necessary involvements or actions, the majority of my weekend will involve reading and finishing books. I hope I can at least provide one review for all of you by Monday!
I have been able to make it to several book signings and festivals during my hiatus, and will gladly share what happened with you!
I'll try and post all of the signings over the weekend, and I'll also be posting a, currently reading and to be read list in the next few hours.
Thank you again!

I'm so sorry I've been away for so long! I've been in school for esthetics for the past year, and wasn't able to post anything during that time. I do have a few updates that I'll post tomorrow, asap. And I'll be sharing my future plans with you all as well. I want to thank you all for sticking around while I was away, And I look forward to chatting with you all again!

Publication date: September 8th 2014
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult
The year is AE3, 3 years after the Event. Within the walls of Meritropolis, 50,000 inhabitants live in fear, ruled by the brutal System that assigns each citizen a merit score that dictates whether they live or die. Those with the highest scores thrive, while those with the lowest are subject to the most unforgiving punishment–to be thrust outside the city gates, thrown to the terrifying hybrid creatures that exist beyond.
But for one High Score, conforming to the System just isn’t an option. Seventeen-year-old Charley has a brother to avenge. And nothing–not even a totalitarian military or dangerous science–is going to stop him.
Where humankind has pushed nature and morals to the extreme, Charley is amongst the chosen few tasked with exploring the boundaries, forcing him to look deep into his very being to discern right from wrong. But as he and his friends learn more about the frightening forces that threaten destruction both without and within the gates, Meritropolis reveals complexities they couldn’t possibly have bargained for…

So here is a book launch/blitz, with a post by Melissa Landers.
Hey there, booklovers!
I’m author Melissa Landers, and I’m thrilled to announce the release of STARFLIGHT, the first in a brand new sci-fi series from Disney-Hyperion. I originally pitched this story to my editor as “Overboard” (one of my favorite romantic comedies) meets “Firefly” (an amazing show that was tragically cancelled after one season). STARFLIGHT follows the misadventures of Solara Brooks, a penniless felon who indentures herself to her high school nemesis, Doran Spaulding, in exchange for passage to a new world. But when Doran’s memory is temporarily erased, Solara convinces him their roles are reversed—that she’s the master and he’s the servant—and leads him onto a renegade spaceship, where intergalactic shenanigans ensue.STARFLIGHT is very different in tone from the Alienated trilogy, but the story is still filled with all the things I love: humor, heart, and adventure.
“Get ready for blast-off! Action-packed and utterly addictive, nobody writes like Melissa Landers. A smart, satisfying romance set in a vividly detailed world, Starflight was just plain fun!” –New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman
“Teens will be bracing themselves during the swashbuckling action scenes. A great choice for fans of raw sci-fi action, reminiscent of the lawlessness presented in the television series Firefly.” –School Library Journal
“A lively tale of romance, space pirates, conspiracy, and made (as opposed to genetic) families.” –Booklist
If you like your sci-fi adventure served with a side of romance, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of STARFLIGHT today. It’s now available in stores and online.
