Nothing will top this book. Nothing. I was seriously a mess after/during reading this book/whenever I think about it. This book has so many powerful messages about LIFE, what it means to be Mexican and growing up in America, Stereotypes, and what it means to be Mexican and gay. So it's no surprise that this… Continue reading FIRST READ OF THE YEAR: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of The Universe. (kind of spoiler-y, but not really)
Yes, let's talk about my off-again-on-again relationship with the contemporary genre. If you've been following my blog for more than about 0.25 seconds you've probably heard me scream about this. I haven't actually complained about this for a while, so this post is needed, tbf.

AHHHHH ANOTHER CONTEMPORARY THAT I LOVEEEEEE. CANNOT BELIEVE I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I started this at midnight, and read for 4 & 1/2 hours, leaving 40 pages for the morning. And honestly, if I hadn’t left those 40 pages, I don’t think that I would have actually been able to sleep. I LOVE… Continue reading ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS || ANOTHER CONTEMPORARY THAT I GOBBLED UP

I have a problem with books... but we all knew that already. The Upside of Unrequited is a contemporary, and I know, I don’t read many as fantasy has low-key taken over my life. Howeverrrrrr, Becky Albertalli is so hyped and I’d heard loads of things about her new book so I thought,, why not?… Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited Review.
