I‘m alive, I swear!! School‘s been hitting really hard this semester, so I haven‘t gotten a chance to do any reading for me. I‘m in two writing enriched courses (think 3-5 page essays a week), anatomy class part 2, working 3 jobs, and I just joined a sorority. That should change this week, though, because I‘ll be working box office for my uni‘s production of a modern Pride and Prejudice! I‘m very excited, and it gives me time to read.

1. Into the Drowning Deep! I was up until 1am reading that.
2. The Raven Boys. I‘d had it for a long while before I read it, and just kept putting it off for some reason.
3. Remove it sometimes, depending on where I‘m reading.

1. One of Us is Next!! I forgot it was coming out early this year, so I‘ve only just gotten my hands on it.
2. If you‘d asked me before I‘d gone to college, it would‘ve been, unchallenged, Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, VA. However, there‘s a small bookstore called Givens by my college that is really cute and I love it, so those two.
3. Next up is...rereading the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy so I can finally read my copy of Sinner

Hooooly crap I WISH this was America now!! This book has it all: witty, real characters, LGBT+ and POC representation, politics, royals, romance... A few places actually made me laugh out loud, which I don‘t remember doing with any recent books. If you didn‘t read this book during the 2019 blowup, do it now. You won‘t regret it.

Pg 141. “Humanity had chosen the land over the sea millennia ago, and sometimes [...] she thought the sea still held a grudge. Breakups were never easy, and while humanity was hot and fast and had had plenty of time to get over it, the oceans were deep and slow, and for them all change had happened only yesterday. The seas did not forgive, and they did not welcome their wayward children home.”

The only book I bought in Italy (my self control was amazing). We went to the MAXXI museum where they had a carousel art installation, and I fell in love. The gift shop had this pop-up book with a music box that played the same music as the carousel, so I had to get it! Of course, the whole thing is in Italian so I haven‘t read it yet, but soon!!

The Babysitters Coven | Kate M. Williams

Panpan

This book was so, so very close to being a Bail. Within the first 30 pages, I hated all the characters and really just wanted to throw the book away and never have to look at it again. The way that Williams writes high schoolers was just how old people thought high schoolers acted. The writing style was bad. If you use IDGAF, LOL, or IRL in your novel as things characters say or think, you‘re wrong. This book came out in 2019! I thought we were...

MsRadioSilence Past the “high schoolers are from the tech age so they talk like this!” bs. Besides that, the characters were super annoying, the magic rules were scant at best and nonexistent at worst, and when I finished it, my classmates cheered. It was awful, and I will not be reading the sequel. (edited) 1mo

So I finished this one just before we left Italy and holy stars. I really hope there‘s a sequel because it was just too good! The characters were super rich, I loved the writing style, and the reimagined mermaids will give me nightmares for weeks. Grant doesn‘t pull any punches, and reading this will keep you on the shore long after the book ends.

Up to 6hrs 19min! I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, I guessed all the big “reveals” within the first 200 pages or so. They were just so very obvious and the book thought it was so very clever, but it just made it so very boring. Will I read the sequel? Yes, because I want to know what happens. Am I happy about that? Not really.

Just because Christmas is over doesn‘t mean I can‘t continue to watch apsolute sap! I enjoyed The Princess Swap last year, mostly because Vanessa Hudgens was in it! I grew up with High School Musical, and I missed seeing her on the big screen. I rewatched it this year because I thought the Knight Before Christmas was a sequel... Needless to say I know better now, but still an enjoyable time!
