Review: “Ramona Blue” by Julie Murphy

When I heard Julie Murphy was coming to a local bookstore, I immediately started to read Dumplin’ and followed up by both buying and readingย Ramona Blue. I absolutely loved Dumplin’. I thought it was adorable and heartfelt, telling us to embrace who we are and to live unapologetically. I think the same can be said forย Ramona Blue.

I cannot speak for the LGBTQIA+ rep in this book so I linked some reviews at the bottom of mine, along with some other gushing reviews about the book. Enjoy!

Review: “Dreams of Gods and Monsters” by Laini Taylor

It’s always sad to see a series come to an end, especially one you thoroughly enjoyed. I listened to this entire series via audiobook, which was narrated by Khristine Hvam who did anย amazing job! Once I start a series via audiobook, I try to continue with it (which really works out well for my TBR ๐Ÿ˜› ).

Now that I finished this series, I can readย Strange the Dreamer! ๐Ÿ™‚

Review: “The Bird and the Sword” by Amy Harmon

After seeing some of my favorite bookstagrammers rave about this book, I decided I needed it. The unfortunate part was I didn’t have the money to buy it and my local library didn’t have it either. I wasn’t sure what to doย but the great thing about the local library is you can put in a request for a book, and if they receive enough requests, they’ll buy it for their system.

Well, can you guess what happened? I did just that andย violรก! I read it in about 3 days, which is really saying something, lol. But it helped that I recently had a 3-day weekend. ๐Ÿ˜›

Review: “Daughter of the Pirate King” by Tricia Levenseller

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I think I’ve said this for a few other books I’ve read lately, but it’s true! I’m not into pirates, so I wasn’t super intrigued by “pirate books.” There were also mixed reviews for this book, but like I said, such a surprise at how much I liked it! I checked it out from the library, but I’ll definitely add this one to my personal library.

ARC Review: “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” by Maurene Goo

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, when I picked upย I Believe in a Thing Called Love, you knew I absolutely loved it. I read it quickly, which just means I absolutely loved it. When I heard about Maurene’s Goo book, I instantly added it to my TBR.ย I mean, could you really go wrong with a Korean character who created her own K-drama formula in order to get a guy to like her? The answer might surprise you.
