Hello, book lovers! 💕

So I’ve been in a kind of meh reading mood lately. I don’t know why, but I haven’t really wanted to pick anything up.

Goodreads Monday | 9.7.2020

Hello, book lovers! 💕

I decided to do another one of these posts. They’re a lot of fun because I can talk about books that have been on my TBR for a while and haven’t thought about in so long. And honestly, it helps me figure out if I want to keep a book on my TBR or not. There are some books that have been on my TBR for so long that I don’t have any interest in reading them.

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it! I originally saw this post on A Little Haze Book Blog, who is amazing and you should definitely check their blog out.

In choosing the book from my TBR, I used a random number generator in order to see which book I was going to talk about.

Books to Read September | 2020

Hello, book lovers! 💕

How is it September already? Seriously, where did the year go? Then again, I’ve been saying this every month this year. I’m shocked at how fast this year is flying by.

This month I didn’t have much of a plan in terms of the books that I chose to add to this list. I want to say that they’re books that will probably give me fall vibes, meaning they’re atmospheric and whimsical. But I’m not sure if all of them are. Honestly, these are just books that I knew I would be in the mood to read. Though, this list might change depending on what I feel in the moment. I might also add more to this list as the month goes on considering I only put 5-6 books on.

So anyway, onto the TBR!

August 2020 Wrap Up

Hello, book lovers! 💕

Me as soon as August is almost over

I seriously can’t believe that another month is over. And that it’s almost September. And that it’s almost fall. Which I’m pretty excited about. I’m looking forward to the chilly weather where I can wear boots, flannel, fuzzy sweaters while drinking hot coffee (or tea). It makes me feel so cozy, and I absolutely love it. I’ve actually been in the fall mood for the past couple weeks now with my drawing – all I’ve been wanting to draw lately are pumpkins, leaves and everything fall.

Anyway, I digress. I actually did pretty good this month with my reading. While most of the books I read were pretty short, I was able to get through 7 books this month. Which is pretty good for me since I’ve only been able to read 4 books a months. And I really enjoyed a majority of the books that I’ve read, and I’ve done reviews on most of them as well.

So let’s get onto the wrap up!

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia | Book Review

Hello, book lovers! 💕

The following is from Goodreads:

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London | Book Review

Hello, book lovers! 💕

The following is from Goodreads:

Real love…as seen on TV

Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger who has amazing friends, a devoted family, legions of Insta followers–and a massively broken heart. Like the rest of America, Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since when is being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television?

Just when Bea has sworn off dating altogether, she gets an intriguing call: Main Squeeze wants her to be its next star, surrounded by men vying for her affections. Bea agrees, on one condition–under no circumstances will she actually fall in love. She’s in this to supercharge her career, subvert harmful anti-fat beauty standards, inspire women across America, and get a free hot air balloon ride. That’s it.

But when the cameras start rolling, Bea realizes things are more complicated than she anticipated. She’s in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Internet culture wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale. In this joyful, razor-sharp debut, Bea has to decide whether it might just be worth trusting these men–and herself–for a chance to live happily ever after.

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson | Book Review

Hello, book lovers! 💕

The following is from Goodreads:

From Morgan Matson, the best-selling author of Since You’ve Been Gone, comes a feel-good story of friendship, finding yourself, and all the joys in life that happen while you’re busy making other plans.

Andie has a plan. And she always sticks to her plan.

Future? A top-tier medical school. 
Dad? Avoid him as much as possible (which isn’t that hard considering he’s a congressman and he’s never around). 
Friends? Palmer, Bri, and Toby – pretty much the most awesome people on the planet. Who needs anyone else? 
Relationships? No one’s worth more than three weeks.

So it’s no surprise that Andie’s got her summer all planned out, too.

Until a political scandal costs Andie her summer premed internship and lands both her and Dad back in the same house together for the first time in years. Suddenly she’s doing things that aren’t Andie at all – working as a dog walker, doing an epic scavenger hunt with her dad, and maybe, just maybe, letting the super-cute Clark get closer than she expected. Palmer, Bri, and Toby tell her to embrace all the chaos, but can she really let go of her control?

Currently Reading | 8.19.2020

Hello, book lovers! 💕

I’m really pleased with myself that I’m already almost done with a book this week. It almost feels like I’m reading faster, but I think that is just something I’m telling myself to make myself feel better about not reading many books in the last few months. Also, it helps that I’m listening to my current read on audiobook.
