Did someone say Marie Lu? Because I heard Marie Lu, and I. came. running.
I confess that I haven’t read anything from this author other than her debut, the Legend trilogy, but as soon as I saw that her newest release had been added to Libby, I knew I had to snatch it up. And can I just a take moment to compliment myself on how soon after release I was able to read this book *pats myself on the back* 🤗😌
Anyway. I may or may not have forgotten how to write a review over the past couple of weeks, but let’s see how well I can describe all the reasons I loved this book.

Hello everyone, and welcome back! I hope you’re all having a beautiful day so far. The lovely MT @ The Last Book On The Left nominated me for the Liebster Award last month!! Thank you so much, MT!! It wouldn’t be an award post without me sobbing over how amazing this community is, and as this is already the third time I’ve been nominated for this award, I think this calls for some extra-profuse weeping 🥰🥺😭

Hello everyone, and welcome back! Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!! I’m back with another recommendations post.

And today happens to be the perfect day to dive right back into this discussion.

Hello everyone, and welcome back! I’m back with my newest obsession! So over the weekend, I watched this video from Amy’s Youtube channel (which all of you musical theatre fans should definitely check out by the way), and it convinced me to go listen to Starry. I listened to the original concept recording over the weekend, and I am just… so in love. Why aren’t more people talking about this?

Wait, that’s not it. What I meant to say was —
Another month, another wrap-up! Can you believe that we’re already in the last quarter of the year? But honestly, September was one of the few months of 2020 that seemed to last forever. It was an eventful month for me in a lot of ways. For one, I started online school, and my stress levels haven’t just hit the ceiling, they’ve rocketed to the moon and back 😱😭😂 And I’m still getting the hang of fitting in blogging into the mix, so bear with me if you don’t see as much content from me in October!
But I’ll save any further ramblings for the actual post. So without further ado, let’s get into September’s monthly wrap-up!

I didn’t know it was possible for anyone to feel this seen by a historical fiction novel.
About a murder mystery.
Set in the 18th century.
Centered around Catholic persecution.
I didn’t know it was possible, but it apparently is.
I don’t make the rules. 🤷♀️
