Bookish News: Blog Tour – Love Charms and Other Catastrophes by Kim Karalius

Yay!! It’s blog tour week! It’s my first one as well, and I’m so happy I get to help promote this book! I have read Love Fortunes and Other Disasters (and you can read my review of that here), and so I had to give this one a shot. I must say, I kind of like this one better than Love Fortunes. I think it’s the characters lol.

Here’s a little bit about our lovely author, Kimberly Karalius:

KIMBERLY KARALIUS holds an MFA in fiction from the University of South Florida, and Kimberlyhas been sharing stories on with a strong following of enthusiastic readers since the site’s conception. Although Kimberly lives in sunny Florida, she prefers to stay indoors and sometimes buys a scarf in the hopes of snow. She loves watching really old cartoons and silent films. Being in Florida certainly has one big perk: going to Disney World. Which she does. Frequently. Love Fortunes and Other Disasters is her debut novel.

You can reach her in so many ways, too!

So what is the her new book about?

Love Charms and Other Catastrophes (Grimbaud, #2)
Goodreads | Amazon

Aspiring love charm maker Hijiri Kitamura was excited to come back to Grimbaud for her sophomore year-until she learns about the upcoming charm making competition. Grimbaud has just started to recover from the tyranny of Zita’s love fortunes and it would be too easy for the winning charm maker to take Zita’s place. The only solution is for Hijiri, with the support of her friends and fellow rebels, to win the contest herself.

Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done, especially when Love itself has decided to meddle in Hijiri’s life. Concerned that it’s favorite charm maker has given up on finding a boyfriend of her own, Love takes matters into its own hands and delivers the perfect boyfriend to her in a giftwrapped box…literally.

Get ready to be charmed by this magical, quirky sequel to Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius.
