    SPOOKY (AND CREEPY) BOOKS I WANT TO READ THIS HALLOWEEN SEASON // aka an ambitious reading list from a scaredy cat

    Hi hello, yes you are on my blog. Fun fact about yours truly: I’m the biggest wimp out there… So why am I making a Halloween reading list you ask? You know, not even I can answer that very valid question. Literally cannot handle horror AT ALL. I will get nightmares and creepy faces will stare at me for a solid day. I can handle some gore, not all of it. But creepy people NO THANK YOU. Anyways, I did this post last year. It may be bad but you can go and read if you want I guess. But because it’s Halloween, even though where I live people don’t…

    HALLOWEEN PLANS // spooky and scary stories i plan to consume

They’re mainly books but I did include a show, so let’s just get into it!   City of Ghosts by V.E. Schwab I don’t know why I haven’t read this book yet.

    10 LGBTQIAP+ BOOKS ON MY TBR

    Since it’s PRIDE MONTH I thought I’d give you a list of LGBTQIAP+ books I really would like to read because I haven’t read enough to give you recommendations or anything. There are so many books that look awesome and amazing!! 1) Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz I know this is a well-loved book and that there should be a sequel coming soon. From what I gather its a gay coming of age story with a friendship and what I assume a road trip. I mean from the synopsis I already want it NOW because its something I think I’d love. Ari and…

    The Ultimate Book Tag

    So Icthus Book Corner tagged me to do this tag and it looks super fun so let’s just get into it 1) Do you get sick while reading in the car? Um yeah I wish I didn’t because more reading… luckily music exists 2) Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why? OMG I love Rainbow Rowell’s writing style!! (not exactly sure why) 3) Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer. I really love Twilight (I feel like everybody else saying it’s how I found YA) but it’s not the best piece of literature ever made so I obviously am and was…
