I have terrible memory and at this point life just feels like a blur. Months are melding into each other. What happened in April … Continue reading April 2019 Recap || I Don’t Even Know How To Describe This But It Was Not Good
This may not be public knowledge (why would it be?) but I'm a freaking sucker for anonymous romances. By anonymous romances, I mean ones where the main character and love interest communicate in some way but while communicating, don't know who the other one is. Basically, inspired by You've Got Mail or The Shop Around the Corner, … Continue reading Happy Messy Scary Love by Leah Konen [review] It’s a Fluffy Contemporary Summer Anonymous Romance!!

I think I've found my first favorite read of 2019. Well, that's kind of debatable because I'm unsure of whether I would classify The Gilded Wolves as one of my favorites? (It was really good, but I don't know whether or not it was amazing-amazing-aMazInG). This kind of reminded me of Beneath the Citadel x The Girl King, but … Continue reading Descendant of the Crane by Joan He [review] the hype did NOT lie to me, friends. this was amazing
