Let’s quickly acknowledge that this!! post!! is!! on!! time!! ish!!
Honestly, May was exhausting. I don’t think I actually slept last month. I know my hand nearly dropped off from all the exams and the studying and my, I am SO thankful that these exams are coming to an end!
It’s still technically May when I’m writing this, and trust me I’m begging for it to be over. I cannot wait to SLEEP in. I cannot wait to not have to write an essay for TWO AND A HALF MONTHS. I cannot wait to go to Cornwall and lie in the sun and read books and blog for a month with no interruption.
Is it bad that I’m wishing my life away? NOT IN MY OPINION, IF I’M BEING HONEST.
CAN THE NEXT THREE WEEKS BE DONE ALREADY?
Thanks : )
Autoboyography by Christina Lauren – 5/5 – this was SO AMAZING. The LGBTQ+ rep from the Bi main character and Gay love interest was amazing, especially with the <big>internalised homophobia, and this book also had a HUGE message about faith and sexuality and how one really can affect the other and specifically on the Mormon faith. SEBAAAASTIAAAAANNNN!! bby!!! And, it also tackled stereotypes of being Bisexual too, which I thought was great considering that it’s not widely talked about in YA! There was so much heartbreak, so, of course, I had to be killed by this book more than once so I reread it and then reread it again. Review here.
The Dangerous Art of Blending In by Angelo Surmelis – 4/5 – This was so heartbreaking. It is about a Greek family in America who are devout Catholics, and the mother is very strict, and the MC is also gay. This novel does not shy away from the horrors of parental abuse, and it was so so so heartbreaking and GUYS I was sobbing. It was a bit slow in the beginning, but I read it in an afternoon, so YOU KNOW IT’S WORTH IT. YOU. NEED. THIS. Review here.
Solitaire by Alice Oseman – 5/5 – ifwengjngdjgbdfgbksdgujgbldig. I’ve wanted to read this book for so SO long and drjgjrdng!!! I was not disappointed!! I was so confused and in awe and TORI, I love her and the rep there. I also love how much focus there is on Charlie, her brother, who is gay and had/has an eating disorder and just what a lil cutie he is and NICK omg every time there was a Nick and Charlie scene my heart just EXPLODED. But I JUST LOVED the representation of seeing a loved one/sibling go through an eating disorder, as I don’t think that it’s repped enough and I found it really relatable to my own experiences and made the book EVEN MORE HEARTBREAKING AND AMAZING.
Of course, I would have LOVED to read more than this, but with the exams and everything, I think that this is actually an okay amount of books? Especially considering that I read Autoboyography 2.5 times and I have 0 regrets about that, nor shall I ever. JUST YOU TRY AND MAKE ME REGRET THAT.
MY BBY SEBASTIAN DESERVES ALL THE LOVE OK.
Can we just. If you haven’t seen my twitter (let’s be real, who even looks at that dry carcass excuse for humour) I did threads for when I watched Guardians of the Galaxy vol.I and vol.II. and Thor Ragnarok!!
AND. ALICE OSEMAN LIKED MY TWEET ABOUT HER BOOK AND I DIED BRIEFLY.
YES, THIS HAPPENED. And Can I just say WHAT A GREAT BOOK SOLITAIRE IS? I was SO confused and NEEDED TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON. I read most if it in an afternoon and I’m 10000% sure this is because Queen Alice Oseman blessed this reading experience herself.
I’M NOT DELUSIONAL, YOU’RE DELUSIONAL.
I was also incredibly salty about some of my exams –>
Me????? Salty????? Never.
BUT IT’S FINE BC EXAMS ARE
MORE OR LESS HALFWAY TO BEING OVER.
Can I even do a wrap-up without mentioning my really podgy cat at least once? I don’t know, and I’m not going to test it out now.
This blog is really on it’s way to becoming a cat appreciation blog someone
don’t stop me now. “SO DON’T STOP ME KNOW CAUSE IM HAVING A GOOD TIME HAVING A GOOD TIME HAVING A GOOD TIME… I’M A SHOOTING STAR, LEAPING THROUGH THE SKY LIKE A TIGER DEFYING THE LAWS OF GRAVITYYYYYYYY” sorry i had to. queen = life don’t question it. GUESS WHO JUST PUT QUEEN TUNES ON? NOT ME.

12/10 think it was just because of the picture because my, my the content was BAD lmao.
life, wait. i have one of those?
- I don’t have this thing people call a “life”
- because of ExAMs.
- I think that everyone who reads my blog knows about these exams BECAUSE I WON’T SHUT UP ABOUT IT AND IT’S GETTING ON MY NERVES.
- SO MOVING SWIFTLY ON.
- If you didn’t know I came out this month!!
- Not to my family, but to the internet.
- 7,600,000,000 > 5 people for sure.
- 7.6 billion is way less scary.
- You can read that REALLY AWKWARD POST HERE.
- I’m pretty sure that was this month.
- I am delusional, after all.
- I basically bought books EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A TONNE TO READ + ARCS
- DONT EVEN MENTION ARCS TO ME RIGHT NOW.
- I FEEL LIKE AUTHORS ARE GOING TO COME AND STAB ME IN MY SLEEP FOR NOT READING THEM YET.
- what can I say?
- I’m currently rekindling my love for Queen.
- is this even a wrapup or just rambles.
- who knows
- what am I doing?
- so apparently I don’t have much of a life recently.
