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)
I am dying of emotions, but 1) that's nothing new, 2) it's worth it. 13/10 recommend the experience. May recommended this read to me, and it did not disappoint! I think that I'll be rereading this until I die* because it was too good to let go of. (Hence why I read it, and then… Continue reading Coming-Out-Series (P3): An LGBT+ Review (AUTOBOYOGRAPHY) Internalised Homophobia, Self Acceptance, Love and Religion All In One.

I think that is was the perfect contemporary, but… Continue reading Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda Review: Smushy Feelings and Screaming.
Where did this book even go? I was on page one and then suddenly I was finishing it and putting it back on my shelf. (also this is me catching up on reviews because I’m bad at being organised right now, okay?) I think that this is my favourite John Green book so far. I… Continue reading Turtles All The Way Down|Amazing OCD Rep & Realistic Relationships (SPOILER FREE)
UGH I love this. BUT IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY.LIKE . . . thoughts. . . what are they???

CAN I BOW ETERNALLY TO AKEMI DAWN BOWMAN? OKAY KIKO IS THE MOST WONDERFUL PERSON. I absolutely adore her, and literally want to befriend her right now.

PERCY JACKSON AND THE SEA OF MONSTERS. Rating: 3/5 stars. I’m just not falling in love with these books.

I was surprised by the fact that by the time… Continue reading THREE MINI REVIEWS | BOOKS THAT SMUHSED MY HEART. (WAAAAA (!!) + A BIT OF DISAPPOINTMENT. . . )

I’ve got some… Continue reading RELEASE BY PATRICK NESS REVIEW | DIVERSITY AND SPIRITS.

Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister… Continue reading THIS SERIES IS TAKING OVER MY LIFE. DREAM THIEVES REVIEW
