August ’19 Wrap-up and Book Haul (+ an Unhaul)

Hello, friends! Another month has come to an end. We’re in the last stretch of 2019. The days aren’t sweltering hot anymore, I’ve already burned a pumpkin-scented candle and had my first taste of the seasonal drinks at Starbucks. I’m dreaming about autumn as I type this… *sigh*

‘Waiting on’ Wednesday: September ’19 Releases

Okay, friends! We’re finally arrived at the downhill of 2019–just a few more months until 2020! 😱 (Don’t ask me how we’re almost in 2020 because I seriously don’t know.)

ARC Review: “Frankly in Love” by David Yoon

huge thank you to PenguinTeen for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review! I received this book as part of a promotion.

Y’all, how little did I know what I was getting myself into when I read this book. I knew it was going to be good, and I expected a cute, fluffy romance but it was so much more than that. In the best way possible.

All quotes are taken from the ARC and may change in the finished copy.
