Hey bibliophiles! How have y’all been? Mine’s mighty fine, homework every turn I make. Ugh. But yeah, I have two oral presentations coming up in which I’ll most likely fail because I hate speeches and they are the scariest things on earth.

Other than that, my birthday is this Friday! WHOO! That means that I’ve been alive for 14 years πŸ˜€

My eARC ban has officially finished and it failed because I am still high above 400 books on the TBR but yeah… I got some pretty awesome titles from NetGalley and Edelweiss. Also, I have a question for y’all: I get accepted from Random House on Edelweiss but I can never find the ‘download’ button. It pisses me off because I really wanted to read Red but now I can’t as there’s no damn button to download anything.

Just Finished Reading…

~Edelweiss still loves me!~
Split Second- Anyone jelly? I would be, I kissed this book the second I saw it.


Fake ID- I’m not really sure why I requested this anymore. Oh wells.

Cruel Beauty- Fairytale retelling plus mythology. HELL YEAH.

Watefell- I haven’t read many good mermaid books. Time to give another a try.

Burn For Burn- I have already read this but bought it because I am receiving FireΒ With Fire for review soon so I want to own both of them. I’m weird, shuddup.

Cinder- I am still wondering why the heck I don’t own this series yet. I love Meyer’s books so much!
