What’s On My Spring TBR?

April 14, 2021 in Books

Hello friends! You might already know but it’s my birthday tomorrow – woop woop! So I wanted to share my Spring TBR with you. If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know that I CANNOT follow a TBR to save my own life. I make these lists and I NEVER keep to them. So this one is a bit more flexible. It’s literally just a list of books that I want to prioritise reading over the next two months. And there’s a pretty good mix of genres! I probably won’t get to all of them and that’s okay… But anyway, that’s enough waffle from me – here’s my TBR!

Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

April 6, 2021 in Mystery & Thriller

Hello friends! I hope that you had a restful Easter weekend full of great books and delicious treats! My main weekend read was the book that I’m reviewing for you today. (Which also comes out today so happy publication day!) It’s a domestic thriller about a woman whose 10 week old son gets abducted and she has to do whatever the kidnapper says if she wants to get him back. Let me tell you, it is a WILD ride from start to finish. I’ve never read anything by this author before but a lot of my favourite booktubers have been talking about this book and I knew I needed to read it ASAP. And reader, it was worth it. So…

12+ Books Coming Out in April 2021 That You NEED to Know About!

April 1, 2021 in Books

  Hooray, it’s April! April is always an exciting month for me because it’s my birthday month. (Woop woop!) And this month there are so many fantastic books coming out. So many, in fact, that I struggled to whittle this list down to just 12-ish. It was a challenge. But I’ve managed it and today I’m excited to share with you the books I’m most looking forward to this month.

Once Upon a Quinceañera by Monica Gomez-Hira

March 24, 2021 in Young Adult

The book that I’m reviewing today has been hailed as being “perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Jane the Virgin” and since I love both, you know I jumped at the chance to read this one. It’s a YA set in Miami with own voices Latinx representation and I really enjoyed it. Without further ado, here’s my book review of Once Upon a Quinceañera by Monica Gomez-Hira.

Wrapping Up The Books: February 2021

March 19, 2021 in Wrap-Ups

We’re a few weeks into March now so apologies for the delay in sharing my wrap-up! Still, I’m here now and I’m ready to talk books. February wasn’t a fantastic reading month for me. I was slumpy and unmotivated. Even though the books I read were pretty great. (My lowest rating all month was one 3-star!) My mental health was a problem area last month (and indeed, this month) so I think that contributed to my slumpiness. But I’m feeling a lot more positive which is great! So I guess, all that’s left to talk about is the books!
