You know those books that you’re so full of love for that you just feel like you could burst?
Girls of Paper and Fire is one of those books. It’s an absolutely beautiful book, with the best themes and messages. It has a stunning cover, a gorgeous romance, and an intricately crafted world.
But while I love it for all of that, I love it for so much more: the fact that it’s a story about two queer, sapphic Asian girls, fighting against all odds for themselves and for each other. And as a queer, sapphic Asian myself, this book means so much to me.

Look at me, actually doing tags.
Okay, actually, I’ve neglected all the tags and decided to do one that I wasn’t actually tagged for (because I’m ridiculous like that). But I mean… how can I resist this tag?? It’s a mashup of two of my favorite things ever???
I found this tag on Aimee’s blog and you should definitely check out her post (and her amazing blog as well!). I’m so glad to see that a lot of bloggers are fans of B99 because the show is truly amazing and I genuinely love it.

August was a chaotic month and I’m SO GLAD it’s over.
I thought I could be NOT stressed out by school and I… completely failed. Not to mention the fact that I did not read the 9 books I planned to, or plot out as much as my WIP as I thought I could, or actually interact with bloggers like I’d expected to.
Me? Being productive? Not as likely as you think.
(Just kidding I’m sure none of you thought I would be productive in August.)
But even though I literally just summed up my whole month in two sentences, I’m still going to talk about, in 1.7k words, what else happened in August!!! I know this is a horrible intro but please just go with it my brain is tiredt.

I am extremely excited to announce: I’m co-hosting a readathon!!
And I’m co-hosting it with two of my closest friends in the book community. And it’s all about reading books you think you’ll enjoy. And I’m planning on reading books that I’ve been wanting to read forever. And I’m just REALLY EXCITED.
This is basically just an introduction/announcement post about what it is, when it’s happening, who it’s hosted by, what the challenges are, and what my TBR for it is!! I can’t wait for it to start, and I would love if any of you could join us!

Though I usually get disappointed by books, there are some that exceed my expectations.
Beneath the Citadel is one of those books that completely took me by surprise, and in a GOOD way.
(Wow, can you believe I’m saying that?? I love not being disappointed by books.)
I’d first heard about this book vaguely, and put it on my TBR without thinking much of it. But when I heard about “bi boys and plus-sized ace girls”… I KNEW I had to read it. (I’m weak for queer stories okay.) And I’m so glad I ended up requesting this ARC, because I totally fell in love with it, and it’s probably going to end up as one of my most recommended fantasies!
