This was so cute and sweet.

Returning to this series was EXACTLY what I needed.

? new review arrivals:
… sigh. One of the symptoms of my mental illness is to seek out retail therapy when I’m stressed, and when I can’t go shopping, I have a history of turning to NetGalley and Edelweiss to replace that feeling. That’s the only explanation I have for what happened this week.

???? non-bookish occupations:
More ACNH, forever.
I started playing World of Final Fantasy this week and I AM OBSESSED. My son has started hogging the Switch a lot to play Animal Crossing (he’s shockingly good at it for a 3-year-old? wtf), so now I play this on my PC whenever I’m letting him play ACNH. ?♀️
This was a really, really bad week for my mental health. My anxiety came back in full force and I nearly had a complete nervous breakdown yesterday. Right now, I’m just going to majorly prioritize self-care and try not to think about anything too much.
a few last words:
— destiny ♥

Enjoy your reading!
Tbh I didn’t think Geekerella was worth it..!
Thank you! I didn’t get the chance to reply sooner, but seeing your comment is part of what gave me the strength to finally just DNF it and I’m glad I did ?
Good to hear!
I loved Geekarella and how it showed so much love for fan culture and how shows can be there for us! Sending hugs ❤️
It is really sweet to see fan culture finally being appreciated in YA books! <3
Yessssss agree 100%
Oh, Camp by L. C. Rosen is so cute!! I really hope you enjoy it!!
I think you were actually why I picked it up! I feel like I remember you saying nice things about it on IG or your stories or something ?
OMG… you watch my stories?! But, I’m a blathering idiot!! ???
Sending hugs? Oh my word, I’m so excited to see what you think of so many of those books! Also. that series with the plus-size girl on the cover??? I NEED to read it now, that never happens in fantasy!
Hugs! <3 Right?! I was so stunned when I saw it. The covers are so pretty!
I also got HORRID recently from Edelweiss and am SO PUMPED. I have been excited for this book since the deal was announced. I hope you love it!
Yesss, congrats! Same, I feel like I’ve been waiting a while for it. I haven’t read any of her older works, but I was kind of blown away by You Must Not Miss!
Sending hugs! I’m currently reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. A friend sent me a copy!
[…] here’s to you, Kristian, Jenna, Tony, Simon, Ariel, Vinnie, Antonio, Lori, Sara, Didi, Tiana, Destiny, Greg, and others. Thank you for the words you write, the stories you share, and your […]
