The 5 Most Disappointing Books I’ve Read So Far This Year (Happy National Book Lover Day)

It’s National Book Lover Day so naturally, it’s time for me to rant about disappointing books!

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been truly salty for a blog post, and that’s an issue. One day all my bitterness is going to explode from me and I’ll become a husk of dry despondency.

So today, I decided to talk about the 5 most disappointing books I’ve read in 2019 so far!! I forgot it was National Book Lover Day when I wrote this, but honestly I think it’s very fitting that I’d be salty about books on a day meant to celebrate loving books.

(Actually, though, the real reason behind me writing this post is that I tried to write two other blog posts and completely lost motivation for both of them, so I decided to go back to something that will never fail me: Ranting and being salty!! And it’s going to be FUN.)

Before I get on with it, I just wanted to say the biggest, most heartfelt THANK YOU, because I recently reached 2,000 followers on my blog, and… I don’t know how to describe how much that means to me. There are a lot of reasons why this particular milestone is so jaw-dropping to me, but in general, it just means the world to me that you guys support me and the work that I do. I love and appreciate you all endlessly!!!

My Most Anticipated Books Releasing August Through December ft. Me Being Way Too Excited For Everything

Hi, I’m back to add more books to your TBR!!

Having to go through my Goodreads shelf to make this post was EXCRUCIATING, because there are just so many amazing books coming out this year (or, more accurately, this last half of the year) and I just want to read them all right now. But here is a list of my most anticipated books releasing in the last half-ish of 2019!!

To compensate for the fact that I got overexcited and included July in my previous anticipated releases post, I’m doubling the amount of books I feature in September and October!! (No, this is 100% NOT because I’m indecisive and can’t choose out of all the amazing books releasing those months.)

Note: There are a few non-YA books here; Gideon the Ninth, Ninth House, and Queen of the Conquered are adult, The Tyrant’s Tomb is middle grade!

ARC Review: Stronger than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan // Enjoyable Asian Steampunk Fantasy!

Another Asian fantasy?? You heard right.

I’m back with yet another review of an Asian fantasy I adored, because it’s just my brand!!!

When I first heard of this book, I was really intrigued by the blurb, because it talked about an acrobat warrior girl and a witty thief going on an epic adventure, and just hearing about that dynamic added five years to my lifespan. It turned out to be a super fun book to read, with a unique blend of steampunk and magic, and I’m excited to talk to you guys all about it today!
