Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Unwritten by Alicia J. Novo @aliciajnovo @XpressoTours

Alicia J. Novo
Publication date: May 8th 2021
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Books whisper to Beatrix Alba. But they aren’t the reason she has never fit in. Bullied at home and school, she keeps a secret—a power of violence and darkness.

When the spell that keeps her hidden fails, she’s catapulted into the Zweeshen, a realm where all tales live, and her dream of meeting her favorite characters comes true. But wishes are tricky, and behind its wonder and whimsy, the Zweeshen is under attack. A character is burning bookworlds in pursuit of a weapon to rule both stories and storytellers. To succeed, he needs a riddle in Beatrix’s possession.

Now he’s hunting her down.

Joining forces with William, a cursed conjurer, Beatrix must face an enemy who knows her every weakness in a realm where witches play with time, Egyptian gods roam, and Regency heroines lead covert operations. And with her darkness as the only weapon, she may have to sacrifice everything to save a world that rejects her.

My Review:

I don’t even know where to start my review for Unwritten is definitely unlike any book I have ever read. The premise, the writing, the creation of Unwritten derives from a brilliant imagination.

Alicia J. Novo has taken one bookworld after another and brought them all to live together in one place, one bookworld/realm. I love the whole concept behind the plot of Unwritten. What an amazing world that Alicia J. Novo has created.

One of the characters is going around the bookworld looking for a sword so he can rule over all the characters and authors. Where ever he goes he is burning books.

The one person who may be strong enough to stop this character from burning books is teenager Beatrix Alba. Books whisper to Beatrix. Beatrix loves falling into a bookworld and leaving her own behind as she doesn’t feel as if she fits into her world.

She is bullied at school and home. I can relate to Beatrix and wanting to live in the bookworld herself. I mean when she enters the bookworld she has left her own behind. The bookworld is like an escape from the real world. Once you have entered a bookworld you can write yourself into the story as if you are one of the characters.

I love the title Unwritten and the bookworld as I can imagine that once Beatrix steps into the bookworld her story is like Unwritten and it's like she can write her own story.

I can’t wait for more in this bookworld. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in The Zweeshen Chronicles. I need it now, please, or ASAP.

I would highly recommend Unwritten to all book lovers! So one-click your copy of Unwritten so you too can walk in this magical bookworld today!

Author Bio:

Alicia has a weak spot for happy endings and transformative journeys. She spent her teenage years
in Argentina and Europe, speaks several languages and loves to travel.

An eclectic reader, she grew up on a diet ranging from Lucy M. Montgomery and Jane Austen to Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Raymond Chandler, Hermann Hesse, Jorge Luis Borges, and many classics. She's never been cured of reading a bit of everything and is as likely to geek out about Mr. Darcy as Dr. Who.

She is a history and astronomy aficionado, who walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain, completed her Masters in the Netherlands and worked for Google in Ireland. She decided to become a writer at six but took a full, winding road here. Along the way, she learned if there’s one thing that cuts across cultures, one unifying thread that pulls everyone together, it's a good story.

A big-city girl, she now lives in the Midwest, where she occasionally picks apples and pretends witches exist.
