right now, in this crazy world, we need some time for self-care and relaxation. So why not make yourself uncontrollably SOB? if that’s not self-care, i don’t know what is.
And of course, rather than reading all the new books I haven’t read, I’ll reread all of these for the millionth time because… that common sense isn’t it??
And will I aim to read all of these books during lockdown? absolutely!! (And I didn’t realise but all of these books are LGBTQ+ in someway!!
I wish you all the best
I waited soooo long tor read this book, and it absolutely did not disappoint! I reread this book all the time, and no matter how many times i reread it, I still get all those mushy-sad-happy feelings that I got the first time. I think that this is also a SUPER important book that just squishes my heart in all the best of ways. I cannot properly express my love for this book in a short paragraph, it’s just that good.

ahhh this cute, fluffy book!!! (BUT ALSO MAKES ME CRY)
I cannot wait to reread this, maybe once i’ve tackled ‘The Cruel Prince’ which has been sat on my shelf for YEARS unread and lonely : ( But honestly, I loved this book so much, I thought that it was adorable and wholesome and is so easy to keep going back to whenever you feel like it. when you’re sad? when you’re happy? when you’re stressed? when you’re sleepy? when you can’t be arsed to really pay attention to a book but you want to read nonetheless? yes yes yes yes yes. I ADORE THIS BOOK.
(ALSO: on the day of writing this post I just found and #ownvoices book very much like this one but a few stomps on the heart more painful: ‘date me, bryson keller’)
Red White Royal Blue
I JUST RE-READ THIS. Oh my heart. I keep forgetting what a bi!disaster the mc is, but every time i read it i get reminded instantly. Honestly, this book is top-notch quality humour, sass, and sarcasm and I absolutely ADORE IT. I think it’s a great book, in all the times I’ve read it (a lot) I’ve never read it and thought ‘ehh‘ at a single thing written, got bored while reading it and wanted to give up on it, or anything. And while it is, arguably, about politics and stuff and reelection, it’s not overwhelmingly about politics, it’s not confusing or dull! You could literally know nothing about the U.S and this book would still make sense.
This is a recent-read but WHERE has this been all my life? I’ve heard about this book for YEARS, possessed it for YEARS and I’ve only jut read it? This book, while taking a moment for me to get really attached to, was so easy to get through and i loved every thing ❤ Sam is such a smol son who needs all the love in the world (and then some!!) & the anxiety rep was *chef-kiss*
I hadn’t read a duo-pov in a while and this justtttttt. was so good. i loved having two povs!!
Totally underestimated my love for this book, and i will absolutely be reading this book of sweetness again SOON. (and you better be too)
All For The Game
(is this even a post by me if this isn’t mentioned?)
GAH. I reread these books so many times last year and i’ve missed themmmmmm. This is a stressful trilogy, somehow about the MAFIA AND SPORT? because those go together??? but it works!!!! the SHIP. THE SHIP. THE SHIP.
Honestly, there isn’t anything that i dislike about this trilogy apart from the fact that there’s no more books to read after it’s finished. I just want INFINITE books on these pairings, but alas, there isn’t so I’ll just have to reread it over and over again.
Honestly, what was i doing before i read these books?
