Ranting About and Boosting All of My Favorite Book Bloggers: Part 1!

One of my favorite things to do is to boost other bloggers.

And I’ve been wanting to do this kind of thing for a while now, and I’ve seen so many amazing blog tags floating around where you promote other bloggers, but I’ve decided to wait until now (my birthday month, because I’m sappy like that) to give shoutouts to my favorite bloggers!

Getting sweet messages from people telling me they love my blog just means the world to me, and I love making others feel the same way as well. Plus, a lot of these bloggers I’ve become close friends with, and I love boosting and supporting them in anyway I can!

So without further ado, since this is going to be one of two long posts in this mini-series, here are some of my favorite book bloggers!

Disclaimer: 1) If you’re not mentioned here, I obviously still love you and you are amazing and you definitely aren’t a “bad blogger” or anything of the sort!! and 2) all the bloggers mentioned are in randomized order—as in I literally put names in an online randomizer—so there is no favoritism whatsoever (and there IS a part 2!) <33

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan // The Beautiful, Brutal Book of My Sapphic Asian Heart

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.

YA Books with Queer Characters that You Should all be Scrambling to Read Right Now!! // My Pride Month Recs + TBR

IT’S PRIDE MONTH!!!!

I know that this month is full of people gatekeeping and policing what can be defined as “queer” or not, but I just want to do something to keep me and this month as happy as we can be.

So today, I’ll be recommending queer books and talking about my Pride Month TBR of all queer books. I’m super super excited to be reading these books; I’ve been planning my TBR for months and I get to finally read these beautiful queer books AAAAHHHH.

Also, I’ve tried to mention all the marginalized identities represented in all the books mentioned, but I might have forgotten some and/or didn’t know the specific identity!  And please ask me for any content/trigger warnings, because I am happy to provide them!

**THESE AREN’T IN ANY PARTICULAR ORDER DON’T MAKE ME PICK FAVORITES.**

9 Things in Books that Make Me Run Towards Them with Open Arms aka What Compels Me to Read Certain Books

So, to the surprise of many, I actually, you know, LIKE books.

I’m getting more and more critical of the books I read, and you’ll see me handing out more 3-star ratings than 5-star (I HAVEN’T READ ANY 5-STAR BOOKS THIS YEAR YET HELP).

But?? All is not completely lost yet???? There are still MANY things in books that I absolutely love to read, and so today, I decided to talk about them! Aka me screaming about my favorite things and then demanding recommendations.

(Also! All the book covers link to the book’s page on Goodreads!!)

Kicking off “Goodbye 2017”: My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Moments of 2017 ft. Me Being Sentimental & Regretful

So if you know me, I like to do things BIG.

I like to scream about things and make a really big deal about stuff that really isn’t that important and also go out with a BANG. So of course, I’ve decided to make a little mini-series for the last two weeks of December (and a bit of January) called Goodbye 2017!!

Yes, I’m very original.

Basically, it’s going to be a mini-series of posts where I wrap up the year of 2017 & get ready for 2018!!

But today, I’m going to be reviewing my favorite (and least favorite) “moments” of 2017. Which will basically consist of me tearing my hair out for two days trying to remember what happened this year, because I remember NOTHING.

THANKFULLY the favorites outnumber the least favorites. (But I probably forgot a lot of things because I have the memory of a vegetable, which is none, because vegetables have no memories.)
