    1. Happy delated birthday, dear!! xx
      You got some awesome books! I have yet to get the turn of the key; although I went to the bookstore not too long ago.. I choosed upon not taking any Ruth Ware on this trip 😅

      Ohh among us is on steam! I have been wondering where in hell was that game on, as everybody was talking about it.. but I was kinda clueless xd ahaha — and also YES for friends of mineral town!

    1. Ooh you’ve gotten some really good books! I hope you will love them all!


    1. Happy birthday! Among Us is addicting as all hell. And I kinda love Hatoful Boyfriend? That game is so stupid haha. Hope you had an amazing week.

    1. This is like my fourth time visiting this entry so you’re welcome for the clicks. :*

      INTO THE DROWNING DEEP. You can chat with me about this one when you read it because it’s still fresh in my mind.

      I wonder what you’ll think of The Turn of.

      I have Among Us too, yay.

      My friends told me to get Stardew Valley and Story of Seasons. Stardew was cheap so I got it but I don’t like it! I’ll start saving up pennies for SoS.

      Do you review video games? Could you please? I only play romance or horror ones so I feel like I’d benefit from your takes.

      A pal told me to get the pigeon game today. I’d played it before but like way back before memes lmao. Idk if I’d get more out of it now? Anyway review games pls and ty like now pls.

      My fave haul in October: MONSTER PROM!!!!!!!
