The Makeup Book Tag 💄

Hello everyone and welcome back!! ❤️ I’m sorry for going AWOL the past two weeks—I’m currently halfway across the world in South Korea, and things have been way too chaotic for me to properly sit down and draft a post. Who knew there could be so much paperwork and stress involved in visiting your extended family? It’s all necessary to limit the spread of the virus, but I won’t lie and say the entire process has been anything other than extremely exhausting. On the bright side, it’s great being back in South Korea again and seeing all my cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents! There are obviously some limitations to what we can do together because of the pandemic, but it’s so wonderful getting to see each other again.

Anyway, I figured I’d do something quick and fun for today’s post, and what’s quicker and more fun than a book tag? Thank you so much to Ritz @ Living, Loving and Reading for tagging me to do the Makeup Book Tag 🥰 I had so much fun answering these questions (despite the fact that I haven’t put on an ounce of makeup in my life 😅) and I hope you all enjoy reading my answers!!

Review: Skyhunter by Marie Lu

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 🥰🥺😭

The Finally Fall Book Tag!

So I’ve come equipped today with just the right type of blog post — the Finally Fall Book Tag! Thank you so much to Alexis @ The Reading Addict for tagging me, and let’s get right into it!

World Book Day Dinner Party!

Happy World Book Day everybody! Let us celebrate our love of reading and the paper monstrosities that we have dedicated our lives to studying!

Today, in honor of this joyful day, I am throwing a Literary Dinner Party. I saw this tag — which was created by NEHOMAS2 at YouTube — in a splendid post at Modern Witch’s Bookshelf. I invited some of the most memorable characters I have read about, and I can’t wait to imagine their interactions at this impromptu dinner party. Will it be awkward? Will someone smash a plate or two (or a dozen)? Or will everyone go home to their respective worlds with a new best friend to keep in touch with? Let’s find out!
