Cover reveal: Uprising by Jessica Therrien

Hi everyone! Today, I have the pleasure of revealing a gorgeous cover from equally amazing book: Uprising by Jessica Therrien!





All hail orange color!! And look at the hair! The gorgeous eyes! The way the wind plays with her hair! I just looove this cover so much. ♥


I can't share you the blurb of this book for now, but here's just tiny bits of one hundred reasons why I am obsessed in love with William, the love interest in this series. ;)


Teaser from book 1, Oppression:

“If you could sum up your whole life into a single flavor, what would it be? What do you think your life would taste like?”

I laughed. “I don’t know. That’s a strange question.” I thought about it though. It would have to be something bitter, but still sweet in a way, something that looked better than it tasted. “Maybe… semi-sweet chocolate?”

“Only semi-sweet?” he observed.

“I have my reasons,” I defended. “What about you? Something sugary and delicious?”

“Hmm, I have to rethink it. It’s definitely changed since I met you.”

He smiled at me, and I recoiled a little into the cushion seat of the booth, throwing my eyes immediately in a different direction—away from his.

“Peanut butter,” he decided.

“Why peanut butter?”

“I have my reasons,” he mocked.

“It’s not very sweet.” 

“No, but it goes well with chocolate.”

Check out book 1, Oppresion, on Goodreads! :)




If you have time, feel free to wander around my blog and read my interview with Jessica Therrien and my review of Oppression! Here's the link. Oppression is an original, refreshing take on Greek myth that I absolutely adore!

Thank you for reading, lovelies! I hope you're having a fantastic day! ;)

A little thing about Hilda!

I'm having difficulties with internet lately, and for unknown reasons, blogger didn't post my scheduled posts such as Monday Muse and my reviews. I'm sorry for everyone who has been waiting for Monday Muse to cheer up your day! I'll make sure to sort things out when I have decent internet access. Please please please don't be mad (or worse, disappointed) at me for the lack of commenting, posting, and reviewing lately. I miss you guys! *hugs* >.<

  1. So beautiful! I love the cover of the first book too. I still need to read that one, but can't wait. :) Thanks for sharing, Hilda!

  3. Love the cover so much too Hilda!!!! I love the color of orange like that, bright and light! I was so glad to hear from you again today, so sorry about your internet problems. Barney is my favorite HIMYM character, sometimes i am a little embarrass to admit that, but its true.
    I defiantly need to read Oppression sometime.

  4. I love that orange cover! It's stunning and usually I hate cover models but this is an exception. And aww, that little quote is so adorable!

    And your problems with scheduled posts happen to me all the time. For some reason Blogger just decides not to publish a scheduled post when I want it to! Argh! Hope it gets sorted soon. :) xxx

  7. Uprising looks gorgeous! Lovely revealing, Hilda! I'll be definite to try and see what the first book is about. :) Aww I thought you didn't post Monday Muse because of something else instead of internet difficulty. I hope to see it next Monday instead. :) Hope it gets fixed up by then.

  9. That is a really gorgeous cover and you really don't see many bright orange covers! I didn't realise it was the sequel to Oppression, I remember reading about that book but I haven't read it yet - thanks for the reminder!

    And don't apologise, hun! It must be really frustrating, hope you get it all working again xox

  11. I love the cover and the colour scheme! You're right Hilda, so gorgeous. :) And that teaser is utterly adorable! I think I would be chocolate too. :)

    And no need to apologize, sweetie! It's completely understandable that you have a lack of internet connection (I had the same issue two weeks ago, and wasn't able to post for several days). We're just thrilled you're back from your super-mini hiatus. :) <3

  16. I think Uprising it x938675293874 better than the first book in the series! I mean, for somebody who's not a fan of model covers-- I love this! Nothing would catch my eye moer in a bookshop.<3

    Ohmigosh, that is probably the best teaser I've ever read.(': Basically I WANT THIS BOOK.<3 Gosh, Hilda. You're going to make me buy a book, which I can't do since I'm in a book-buying-ban. (;

    Lol, like we could ever be mad at you Hilda. *HUGS* <3

  18. This is such a gorgeous cover! It suggests mystery and intrigue and FIRE! I ADORE it <3 I'm not usually a huge fan of model covers but this one is simply striking! I love how her hair is in her face and the arrangement of the colours and everything! It's definitely an improvement from the cover of the first book!

    Thanks for sharing, Hilda <3

    Oh and there is NO need to apologise, girl! Technical difficulties can be extremely inconvenient and annoying but I could never be mad or feel disappointed in you :') You are an amazing blogger and having the privilege to be blogging friends with you is an honour <3

  20. That excerpt = so awesome! How can not be curious about William after that? And I love the cover! So sorry to hear about the technical difficulties, Hilda ;( I feared the post I emailed was swallowed by Spam or something. Anyway, take care! You are awesome. Hope your internet stops giving you problems <3
