#BlogTour: NOTHING HAPPENED by Molly Booth // #Excerpt + #Giveaway

Hello and welcome to my blog tour post for

NOTHING HAPPENED by Molly Booth!

I have an excerpt from the book plus a giveaway for a copy of the book! I hope you check out this retelling of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. So let's learn more about the book...


NOTHING HAPPENED

Author: Molly Booth
Series: N/A
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: May 15, 2018

Summary:

This modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing takes place at the idyllic Camp Dogberry, where sisters Bee and Hana Leonato have grown up. Their parents own the place, and every summer they look forward to leading little campers in crafts, swimming in the lake, playing games of capture the flag and sproutball, and of course, the legendary counselor parties.

This year, the camp drama isn’t just on the improv stage. Bee and longtime counselor Ben have a will-they-or-won’t-they romance that’s complicated by events that happened—or didn’t happen—last summer. Meanwhile, Hana is falling hard for the kind but insecure Claudia, putting them both in the crosshairs of resident troublemaker John, who spreads a vicious rumor that could tear them apart.


As the counselors juggle their camp responsibilities with simmering drama that comes to a head at the Fourth of July sparkler party, they’ll have to swallow their pride and find the courage to untangle the truth, whether it leads to heartbreak or happily ever after.

Purchase:
“BEE, THAT WAS A little harsh,” Margo said, once Ben had ducked out. “Can’t you two bury whatever this fight is already? Have you even tried?”

“We’re not in a fight,” I retorted. “And I have to help with some food stuff. I’ll see you in an hour?”

“Sure, darlin’.” She shook her head, kissed my cheek, and grabbed Hana.

SKY IN THE DEEP

Author: Adrienne Young
Series: N/A

Publisher: Wednesday Books
Publication Date: April 24, 2018
Rating: 2/5 stars

Summary:
OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.

Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
Purchase:
I feel like I read a different version of this book than what everyone else did. I did not enjoy it at all. It felt super flat for me because there was no real history there and it was very lacking. It was another one of those books that felt like it tried to hard to be Amazing and fell short. The biggest issue for me was that the entire time we were supposed to come to the conclusion that both clans were exactly the same but there was not enough information about Aska's culture in the beginning for me to compare to the Riki. I got the idea: they were the same. But I wasn't even sure what the Aska believed in, wanted, etc. for me to actually draw comparisons.

So when rock star Lennon Pryor starts pursuing her, It's not rocket science. This doesn't add up. 

I mean, sure, he's hot. 

And charming. 

And a god on the guitar...

But he's also the world's biggest player. Being with him would be a bigger mistake than 2+2=5. 

Until graduation night, when a reckless moment leads to a reckless kiss. And now Jade's falling for the one guy destined to break her heart.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion.

I seriously love this series and this night. I love the idea of a promise of hope and something more in the future that is given because it is the "last night" for anything to happen since it's grad night. I really enjoyed Jade and Lennon's story and the way they fell into one another. If you're looking for a cute contemporary novel, this is the one for you.
