Olympic Games Readathon TBR!

Hey, y’all!

I’m so excited to announce that I’m joining my first ever readathon!

This readathon, the Olympic Games readathon, is hosted by some booktubers: Ishi, Ally, Nicole, and Sasha. I linked Ishi’s channel! Here’s the announcement video, too.

If you want to participate, go to the video and learn more! Here’s a quick run-down of the readathon:

Basically, you choose a cabin (Poseidon, Apollo, etc.) and complete the reading prompts to get points. You can also choose to complete the optional prompts to get more points for your cabin!

I’m hoping to complete ALL of these prompts so I have a few book options for each prompt!

Also, this is based on the Percy Jackson books which is the only reason I joined.

I’m going to be in Team Aphrodite just because I like the prompts the best (otherwise, believe me, I would NOT be in this cabin XD).

Also, I’m trying to get in a lot of Pride reads too since this readathon goes through June so lots of these will be aimed at that 🙂

7 Of My Favorite Types of Characters

Hey loves!

I’m back with another bookish post after a month of purely short-story-writing and a quick review/rant about Never Have I Ever.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a list (I think this was the last time, and it was in 2019!) so it’s about time to write another one. I’ll be sharing my favorite types of characters. If you still don’t understand, just wait and read it!

I hope everyone’s staying safe and social distancing- I’ve been doing a lot of cooking lately and if you want I could share some recipes that I’ve been using!

Now let’s get onto the post- it’s quite wordy 😉

Pages: 224
After her parents’ divorce, Bea’s life became
different in many ways. But she can always look back at the list she keeps in
her green notebook to remember the things that will stay the same. The first
and most important: Mom and Dad will always love Bea, and each other.
When Dad tells Bea that he and his boyfriend,
Jesse, are getting married, Bea is thrilled. Bea loves Jesse, and when he and
Dad get married, she’ll finally (finally!) have what she’s always wanted–a sister. Even though she’s never met Jesse’s daughter, Sonia, Bea is sure that they’ll be “just like sisters anywhere.”
As the wedding day approaches, Bea will learn that making a new family brings questions, surprises, and joy.

My Coronavirus Break TBR (ft. it’s not what it sounds like)

Hey sunshines!

The title may have… ~thrown you off~ but these books are actually not related to COVID-19 at all! You may remember that I have three weeks (now pretty much two weeks) off from school because of this virus and the disease (which has spread to SOMEONE I KNOW and who my father hung out with recently) (on another note, my dad thinks that he had the virus for a day or two because he showed all those symptoms but he recovered quickly. If he passed it onto us, it hasn’t shown yet… I’M SCARED Y’ALL).

Anyways, I thought I’d catch up on my reading challenge this year by reading a lot over the break! Sadly, my library is closed, so physical books aren’t really an option. On the other hand, I’ve started trying audiobooks! I’ll probably make a post on that sometime soon if you guys want it 🙂

Now to get right into it!

My Favorite Seven Books Of 2019 (and least favorite books)

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted book-related content but since books are a primary focus of this blog, I thought I’d treat you to a nice wrap-up.

I’m definitely not up for doing a whole-year wrap-up but since there are lots of posts popping up about favorite and least favorite books, I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon!

All of these are in no particular order unless specifically mentioned. And just to be clear, these weren’t necessarily published in 2019 (some of them were, though). These are just books that I loved this year. Also, I’ll be won’t be posting my least favorite books separately but there’ll be a small section for them too!

MY TOP SEVEN BOOKS OF 2019

Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

This was an absolute delight to read! Now, at the end of the year, I’m seeing this book in a lot of people’s wrap-ups: there are definitely more of these on disappointing book lists than I thought there would be! But, of course, a book can’t please everyone! Also, it gets extra points for being diverse (gay rep).

Premise in a sentence: The prince of England and the son of the US president fall into an epic and fluffy love affair right before the US elections.

el dia de los muertos // where we celebrate latinx culture through 10 book recommendations

hey lovelies!

well, happy dia de los muertos, or ‘day of the dead’, tomorrow!

i haven’t read all of the books, but i will definitely mention which ones i’ve read! (look out for the ‘verified’ tag) Continue reading “el dia de los muertos // where we celebrate latinx culture through 10 book recommendations”
