Let me tell you a story.
It’s not very interesting, but we’re gonna roll with it!
One day, all the way back in 2018 when I was a gross little thing, I found out about a Thai-inspired Middle Grade fantasy releasing in 2020. I think I might have teared up about the Thai rep or done something else equally pathetic (I say, as if I don’t cry over not being in Thailand).
It felt like such a long time to wait for a book that I thought would steal my heart, but now that day is FINALLY here!!
Today is the day I will convince you to read A Wish in the Dark at least some time in the future or die. Because I need to make as many people read this beautiful, godly book, and understand why it makes me so happy beyond Thai rep. It’s a phenomenal book and I genuinely am so excited for the whole world, especially young (Thai) kids, to be able to read it now.

It’s been 3 years since I started blogging.
It’s so strange to say that (it makes me feel old even though… I am a baby), to think that I’m going into my third year of blogging in this community. I’ve changed and grown so much throughout these years, and blogging has contributed to that.
You all mean the world to me, and I can only hope to one day repay every one of you for your kindnesses. It’s very surreal to me, and though there have been rough spots and I still struggle with some things, it has been an amazing three years and I’m so grateful to still be here with your support <33
I decided today to just go ahead and start my Q&A, instead of another post like I usually do, since it’ll be split into two parts! If you’d still like to ask questions, you can comment them below or submit them here!!

FINALLY, I can write this post.
I’m gonna be honest, I’ve been waiting all year for this post, because it’s one of my favorites to write, despite all the hours of work it takes me.
Today, as always, I’m linking up with the End of Year Book Survey created by The Perpetual Page Turner. There are lots of questions on this wonderful survey that I won’t be answering, but I truly love how comprehensive it is! I’ll also be talking about my reading stats, garnered by my wondrous google spreadsheet and presented in the form of pie charts!!
Also: Hi! I’m currently in NYC right now, having the time of my life!! (Perhaps we’ll see a post about it?) I just wanted to say that this post took me HOURS to make, hence why I’m posting it so much later than I wanted to. Who knows if I’ll disappear again, but I hope you all have a good day!!

It’s that time of year…
That time of year when I reflect on everything that happened and realized this year was a lot worse than I thought!!
In an effort to be more positive (because as you can see, I’m not very good at that), I’ve decided this year to take out the “least favorite” moments, because I’d rather not dwell on all of those. And I’m a little afraid there would be more of those than favorite moments.
Also, 2019’s special because it’s the end of a decade, so I decided to throw in some overall favorite moments of the decade as well! I was practically 2 years old at the start of the decade (I’m exaggerating!!!), so they’re all a bit more recent, but still important enough to me.

I hate Valentine’s Day!
Call me a cynic but I just. feel so weird about getting sappy and sentimental (not really). I know I do it quite often but I like to appear Cold and Unemotional (not really) and Valentine’s Day just messes it all up!
BUT I do appreciate a good sappy romantic post now and then (not really), which is why today I’m going to share some of my favorite diverse romantic relationships!! I don’t know how I managed to narrow it down to just 5, but I love all of them very much.
Also, I just wanted to note how weird it is that while most fictional books have romance, I feel like in contemporaries it’s more prominent (since in fantasies there’s a whole lot of other things happening, like being on the Brink of Death), yet fantasy ships are the ones I find myself and others obsessing over the most??? I don’t know, just a weird thing I noticed!
NOTE: I’ve also included my favorite art of the couple as well! All art is credited of course, and I love them so much and looking at them makes me cry.
