hello everyone and welcome back!! i say something like this every month, but we have officially entered the last month of the year and i promise that my confusion about the passage of time is 100% genuine this is either the last or second to last monthly wrap-up of 2022 and i can’t decide whether i’m feeling sad or excited about the imminent new year. but before i get ahead of myself (there’s a separate post in the works for that ), let’s put a wrap on november! books one of us is lying by karen m. mcmanus. this was an interesting ya mystery, but unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to t ..read more

hello everyone and welcome back! look at me, posting something that’s not a wrap-up for once today, i’m back with a super random post that i thought of on the go. as you probably all know by this point, i recently discovered taylor swift’s music and have fallen head over heels for all of it (except her debut album, which i haven’t listened to yet). she explores so many different experiences with love and expresses them so beautifully through her lyrics and melodies and so naturally, it was only a matter of time before my love for books and music collided—and here we are with a post all about ..read more

hello everyone and welcome back!! hope you’ve all been well we’re just going to ignore the fact that my last post was my september wrap-up and jump right into the october one—in my defense, did anyone else feel like october was an uncommonly short month this year? here on the east coast, fall is in full swing, most of the foliage has actually already been crunched on, and the sunsets are getting progressively earlier and earlier. i can’t believe we just have one more month left of this season? and just two more months of 2022?!?! what is happening. books mika in real life by emiko jean ..read more
