ARC Review: The Weight of the Stars by K Ancrum // The Beautifully Written Gays in Space Book that Made Me Cry!!!

Gays in space.

That’s it. That’s my review. That’s pretty much all you need to know to pick this book up. That, and also the fact that it’s written with some of the most gorgeous prose ever and it made me cry and has an absolutely stunning cover.

I don’t think I’d ever read a YA gays in space book until now, and I have to say… it was everything I was looking for. Sure, most of the book took place on Earth, and sure, the gay was very slowburn, but did I adore it completely despite that?? (Yes.)

I’m a little late in posting my book review (prioritizing school and my health!!) and the book published two weeks ago, but I hope I manage to convince you all to pick up a copy whenever you can, because it is absolutely worth it!!

Blog Tour Review: Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram // Now I’M the One Who Isn’t Okay (I Cried Over This Book)

I really thought I could stay strong and keep the tears in… but I couldn’t.

Darius the Great is Not Okay was a book that sucked me in from the beginning and kept me in its grip the entire time. It captivated me so much that it even made me cry, which, if you know me, is no easy feat when it comes to books.

Today for my stop in the Darius the Great is Not Okay blog tour, I’ll be doing a review of the book! I was super excited when I was offered this opportunity because this book is one that I’ve been anticipating so much—and if you haven’t already added this to your TBRs, you NEED to.

Thank you to Penguin Random House for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for a spot on the blog tour and promotion of the book!

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.

Mini ARC Reviews: Girl Made of Stars (A New Favorite that Made me CRY) & Isle of Blood and Stone (Surprisingly Entertaining)

I love books that go beyond my expectations.

I mean, who doesn’t?? It means a lot tp ME, because usually, books end up being worse than I expected and I get hit by disappointment like no other.

But this time… IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

I liked these books better than I thought I would??? Surprise!!

Girl Made of Stars was one of my most anticipated releases of the year (I saw that my request had been accepted at school and struggled not to scream) and it was even better than I had imagined. So SO GOOD.

And I honestly didn’t expect much out of Isle of Blood and Stone besides an average fantasy (especially since the beginning was slow) but it ended up surprising me and being much more entertaining than I’d suspected!!!
