Goodreads blurb:

The only sort of risk 18-year-old Laila Piedra enjoys is the peril she writes for the characters in her stories: epic sci-fi worlds full of quests, forbidden love, and robots. Her creative writing teacher has always told her she has a special talent. But three months before her graduation, he’s suddenly replaced—by Nadiya Nazarenko, a Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist who is sadistically critical and perpetually unimpressed.
 
At first, Nazarenko’s eccentric assignments seem absurd. But before long, Laila grows obsessed with gaining the woman’s approval. Soon Laila is pushing herself far from her comfort zone, discovering the psychedelic highs and perilous lows of nightlife, temporary flings, and instability. Dr. Nazarenko has led Laila to believe that she must choose between perfection and sanity—but rejecting her all-powerful mentor may be the only way for Laila to thrive.

June Wrap Up 2018

June of 2018 may be my best reading month ever. I read eighteen books this month. I have read so many incredible books this month, with many coming in under a four or five-star rating – something I give out rarely. I am beyond shocked and, honestly, quite giddy over these ratings. I am so pleased to see a month where I enjoyed a large number of what I’ve read. June was also a month where I got super on top of all my posts, trying to post more bookish discussions and writing lots of reviews. A lot of these books don’t have reviews posted just yet, but they’re coming. I’m currently scheduling posts for August now (oops) so prepare to see them popping up and be patient.
