bank it or bin #4 // my tbr oh no-

Hi guys! I’m back with another edition of Bank it or Bin it, created by the amazing Vee_Bookish! The funniest part about doing this is that as I went onto Goodreads to check my Want To Read list (which is at 716 books btw) I saw a book that caught my eye and added it to my TBR. We’re really off to a great start aren’t we? Sure, maybe I haven’t read this book yet even though I’ve had it for 5 years now. I just need to find time to reread the series properly! And it’s quite hard when … Continue reading bank it or bin #4 // my tbr oh no-

Problematic Books I’ve Read…?

In honor of all the drama surrounding Rebecca Mix’s The Ones We Burn, I’d like to take a moment and write this post in appreciation of all the problematic books I’ve read over the years*. I think it’s good to promote diverse books a majority of the time, but it’s also good to point out reasons why some books might not be read.

bank it or bin #3 // it’s been too long

Hi guys! I’m back with another edition of Bank it or Bin it, created by the amazing Vee_Bookish! The last time I did an installment in this series was uh…November??? And I don’t think anyone wants to know how many books I’ve added to my TBR since then. So let’s hopefully remove some books from this TBR! I love The Seven Realms series. So obviously, way back when, I bought the first book used in her spinoff series based in the same world! I still want to read this book, so it’s getting banked. UH OH. We’ve unfortunately arrived at … Continue reading bank it or bin #3 // it’s been too long

WWW Wednesday!!

I’m possibly the most inconsistent person ever with these posts but hey, we’re doing one today! WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. what are you currently reading? The Atlas Six has been going viral on BookTok for a bit, so I finally (naturally) gave in and got it from the library. And holy crap you guys?!?!?! Why don’t we have more fantasy dark academia books*??? I feel like recently there’s been an uptick on fantasy novels that fall firmly in the “new adult” genre and I want to read them all now. Oh yeah, this … Continue reading WWW Wednesday!!
