Blood Like Magic // ARC Review

Fun fact: guzzling coffee at 10pm might result in one's brain going on hamster wheel of death mode. I can't tell if all my thoughts are now lightning speed, or if I'm wading though murky mind waters at -300 mph. But the coffee is most certainly buzzing. Like a gaggle of bees. Is it gaggle?… Continue reading Blood Like Magic // ARC Review

Dear Blogging, thank you // happy one year blog-o-versery to me!!

What do you think, would you classify pancakes as a sort of cake?? I don't know, I kind of see pancakes as cake adjacent. I mean, sure, pancake does have the word "cake" in it, but does that truly classify it as a cake?? If not, then what does classify something as a cake?? The… Continue reading Dear Blogging, thank you // happy one year blog-o-versery to me!!

Books as Weird Things I’ve Been Told in the Drive Thru

I am convinced that I do my best thinking at the drive thru. As you lovely folk may or may not know, I work at an ice cream shop during ice cream season. Primarily I work at the drive thru register, taking orders, serving ice cream, and enduring far to many crabby people. Of all… Continue reading Books as Weird Things I’ve Been Told in the Drive Thru

Queer Coming-of-Age Stories // Recommendations

I love my local library. For one, books. But also the fact that I live so near to the library has helped my love of reading fester. During past summers especially, I would spent the whole day there. Smelling books, reading them, and finding new (and admittedly strange) positions to sit in those really big… Continue reading Queer Coming-of-Age Stories // Recommendations

A Vow So Bold and Deadly // a chaotic review

Do you ever start writing a review and then it sits in your draft folder for months and months and months like a forgotten sock under your bed?? Until one day, you are doing an electronic spring cleaning of sorts (but in summer) and you find the sock once again. Only now it is moldy,… Continue reading A Vow So Bold and Deadly // a chaotic review

Hello world! It's me, April. It's been a hot second since I've posted, or interacted with the blogosphere for that matter. The end of the school year is coming to a close (one. more. week) and you know, life stuff happened. Tests, projects, nationals for speech, the musical, the whole shebang. I've been reading up… Continue reading 33 Thoughts I Had While Reading King of Scars // Review

Replacing Snakes On YA Book Covers With Milo the Goat // idk what this is

I was on tiktok in ungodly hours of the night a few days ago, as one does, when I stumbled across a video talking about how birds were the token animal of young adult fiction. And sure, there are some bird titles. But I have a counter offer... snakes. Once you see it, you can't… Continue reading Replacing Snakes On YA Book Covers With Milo the Goat // idk what this is

Let’s Talk Spoilers // discussion

I sincerely hope, from the bottom of my soul, that y'all have never had the absolute horrendous experience of being spoiled for a book you were so unbelievably hyped for. It sucks. It really does. Let's just say there was a lot of teenage angst going on, a temporary self ban from book Twitter, some… Continue reading Let’s Talk Spoilers // discussion
