The 20 Questions Book Tag: Answering Questions All About Reading and Opinions and Dog-Earing (aka a Sin)

This must be an alternate universe where I actually do tags?

Or it’s just a universe where I have no inspiration for blog posts and do tags because I’m too lazy to think. Both are equally plausible.

(Also?? This was a post actually finished before the day I posted it??? And it’s impossibly, unbelievably scheduled????* wHo Am I?????)

Anyways, I felt in the mood to answer some questions so I decided to do a book tag I’ve been recently tagged in by the wonderful Swetlana @ The Caffeinated Bookworm Life, whose post you should definitely check out!!

*Update from future May: The post was scheduled… without any formatting, book covers, or a featured image. Of course.

Blog Tour Review: Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson // Hilarious Undead Girls Get Revenge on Their Murderer (WE LOVE)

If there’s anything I want in YA, it’s girl gangs.

You’ve all heard me scream about the importance of female friendships in YA, and how much I love reading them.

Well, when an opportunity arose for me to hop on this blog tour for Undead Girl Gang, I jumped at the chance. (“Jumped” meaning actually physically got freaked out and extremely excited.)

I was very pleased to not be disappointed by this book! There wasn’t a lot of hype for it (though there SHOULD be), so I didn’t form the highest of expectations, but it definitely did surprise me. It took zombie girls to a WHOLE new level.

This is my stop on the Undead Girl Gang blog tour! Thank you to Penguin Random House for providing me a review copy in exchange for a spot on this blog tour.

YA Asian Books You All Should be Reading! + Books by Asian Authors on my TBR // Happy Asian Pacific Heritage Month!

I’m Asian, if no one knew yet.

I’m opening up with a little saltiness today* but I think it’s very important to mention ethnicity and all other aspects of ourselves that might not be the societal “default”!! So if you think that I’m white because that’s what we’ve all been programmed to think: Hi! I’m Asian!

This month is a special month for Asians: It’s Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! So OBVIOUSLY, I’m giving a few Asian book recommendations, as well as talking about some ownvoices Asian books on my TBR.

Asian representation in books is SO important to me so I want to make sure that my fellow Asian readers (if that’s you, say hi!) will find some books where they hopefully will feel represented by.

*Nope just kidding I open up with equal amounts of saltiness in each and every post.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand // Great Premise, Bad Execution, Bland Characters, and ?? Bi Rep [ARC Review]

There are books I can’t remember for the life of me, and there are books I wish I didn’t remember.

Furyborn is one of the latter.

I enjoyed parts of it? I hated others of it? I was confused about it, but also really bored, and I found it hard to actually care about it sometimes? (Which basically describes how I feel about myself.)

But I can say with all the confidence in me: my feelings towards Furyborn are not positive.

There are a lot of mixed reviews, so it’s possible that I just may be one of the people who didn’t like it, and you might be someone who loves it! But I really… did not enjoy it. So here’s a rant on the bland characters and the very unclear bi rep.

May’s Moments of the Month: April // Failing at Things, but Better Mental Health and Better Books!!

April felt like a MUCH better month for me.

I think it’s the best I’ve felt since January, and I’M SO PROUD. I didn’t actually do a lot of the self-care I wanted and hoped to do, but I still managed to have good mental health and not get so stressed/depressed like I was in the months before.

On top of that, I also read a lot of good books! I also stopped caring about low grade averages (even though they’re not that low) since it’s the end of the semester, and what’s done is done and there’s no point in regretting past mistakes unless I aim to fix it. (And I will. Next school year.)

Basically: April was my best month of the year and I’m SO SO HAPPY.
