ARC Review: The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar // The Delightfully Sapphic QPOC Romance of My (and Your) Dreams!

Is there anything as beautiful as feeling represented in media?

The Henna Wars was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I’m so excited for everyone else to be able to read and love this as much as I did. I expected a lot of things going in to this book, but I honestly was really surprised by how much I connected to the main character as a queer person of color!

I’m here today to hopefully convince you all to pick up this wonderful book. I know a lot of people are eagerly awaiting this book’s release, and you will not be disappointed!

Blog Tour Review: What I Like About You by Marisa Kanter // A Cute, Cheesy Romance Set in the Book Blogging World!

It isn’t every day you get to read about book blogging in an actual book.

I’ve always wanted to read about a teen book blogger like myself, and so when Simon & Schuster reached out to me about the chance to read What I Like About You, a book with exactly that, I couldn’t help but say yes!

Though I had one slight issue with the book, it felt more of a personal than universal thing, and I still had lots of fun reading this cute romance. Told in a modern, fresh voice, Halle’s story is definitely unputdownable, and you’ll find yourself loving all the relationships she forges and needing to know what happens next!!

Ever read a book and feel viscerally changed as a person?

That’s me with The Stars and the Blackness Between Them, because oh my god. There are so many emotions running through me because of this book, and I don’t know how to fully articulate them. But today I’m here to attempt to write a review and convince you to pick this book up, because it’s worthy of all your love and adoration.

When Penguin reached out to me about their Daring Debuts Blogger Campaign that featured this book, I jumped on the chance, because I had a strong feeling that the book would be beautiful and that I would love it. And I was right!! So thank you to Penguin for being the absolute best for sending me all these amazing books!!!
