Is  Ray of freaking sunshine ☀️ I'm a new adult and a book reviewer at The Written Voice of Is. #bookstagrammer

I’ve thought of a thousand ways to start this post because I love this book so much. I love how no chill Arthur is and how chill Ben is and how great they both are together. I can even forgive that ending because if you know me you know my heart is easily broken with such endings but I believe in their do-overs. 📦 📦 📦 📦
All I keep thinking is how awesome this book is and how much I smiled throughout it all. I’ll be posting my review soon, and it’ll just be me gush vomiting on a blog post. Biggest thank you to @ti_ti_tina and Denise for getting me one of my most anticipated reads of the year 💕💕

For the last two days, I've been binge reading Back to You because I can't stop. I really was in the middle of class half paying attention to project critiques and trying to get a few pages in, whenever I could. I kept seeing reviews saying that this was a sweet read, and it truly was! In the middle of all the uncertainty, and somewhat angst, it never started from being a sweet and wholesome romance. •••

I'm actually really excited to be part of the bookstagram tour! The next few days a few awesome accounts will be hosting a tour for Back to You, a new novel by debut author Kim Breyon. Each account will be featuring a question from a round of Ask5, a game these two friends loved playing during their childhood together. They are currently playing it up in their treehouse during their time together in foster care.

“What scares you the most?”
“You know this one, Ry. Thunder. I hate how it makes me feel like the whole world is shaking.” (Get my little egg treasure?)

It might not be October but it’s never too early for spooky reads. I could not not buy this once I saw this as one of my coworkers was shelving this way too early in the morning. I love graphic novels and ghosts, and suddenly laundromats? Lol but seriously the colors and art were so beautiful. I loved the ghost backstory and how they work and the whole plot. It was such a nice read after some of my last reads. Which, queen of segue, @vetathebooksurfer tagged me to do #last5reads #fivelastreads (I’m tagging 5 of you) 📖 Darius the Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram
📖You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman 📖 Pisces Hooks Taurus by Anyta Sunday
📖 Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

I’ve never seen my boobs look so small, guys. Like wow. Now that I have your attention (I might not), this book just came out into the world yesterday. And as is my brand, I post about it a day later. I’m excited to read this because I keep seeing it EVERYWHERE and it has wolves in the title which is my favorite animal ever so 👌🏼. Also, can anyone motivate me daily to write my book? Pleassseeeees

SPINES SPINES SPINES. •••

I don’t know,I think I’m obsessed with everything books. I love the covers, the spines, the pages (big of fan of deckled pages and it’s actually better for books to have them—condition-wise), the smell of them, the words, the content. Basically everything. I mean, I even read the acknowledgments. BUT, since it’s a rainy day and I can’t take pictures, and I’m here doing homework and research and trying to write. One of the biggest sale @barnesandnoble has had in years is about to end! They have 50% off some of the best books. •••
•••
I’m going to share my own cart, because why not? First, hardcovers of The Hammer of Thor and The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan. Second, hardcover of The Merciless (yes, I have the paperback but the hardcover is at $9!) and Merciless IV: Last Rites by Danielle Vega. Third, Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (I love this cover more). Anyone else go overboard during sales? What did you buy? What are you buying?

This beautiful book is out in the world right now! & I got to be part of the blog tour by creating a beautiful aesthetic of this book. So go check it out on my blog! Like I said on my post, there’s a lot that I could relate with Darius. Especially about not feeling okay and about feeling like you don’t belong. As cheesy as it sounds, “it’s okay not to be okay.” Also! Thanks to @fab.reads for the tea! Talk about submersing yourself in a read (you’ll get it if you see my aesthetic and read DTGINO) •

Two of my favorite things: a bookstore and a scary read. I can’t get over how great this cover is—the vhs cover with the retro spooky hair and raven attack. Pets cemetery, anyone? Also, it’s a thing with me, I guess, but sometimes books choose me. Like with this book, I was leaving work and I was passing by the shelf and I maybe saw the cover for 0.01 second and I automatically went back and the cover and title stuck with me until I had to buy it the next. Anyone else have that or is that not a thing? •

I’m kind of backed up on reading, but I really love opening this book of collection of essays, lists, comics, illustrations and just reading one at a time whenever I get a chance.

•••• I’m kinda open about my anxiety, but only my family and some of my friends know the true extent of it. I suffer from anxiety that can get crippling sometimes. It’s irrational and sometimes dumb (for me) because an anxiety attack would hit me out of nowhere of for most mundane reasons. Like, once, whilst at work—working the registers, I had a big anxiety attack, and I felt the effects of it until the next day. Sometimes I’ll want to do something, go somewhere, but I might not end up doing the thing because my anxiety prevents me from doing. Some might say that I’m giving power to anxiety, but it isn’t as simple as saying, “I won’t get anxiety out of going so and so place.” There’s also the fact that my anxiety manifests in a very uncomfortable way that messes with my mind. But, some days it’s easier, sometimes for long period of times, it feels like it’s getting better. If I’m going somewhere I try to plan it out, check out the place where I’m going, take my car because I can leave when I feel particularly anxious. Little things that help on the day-to-day. And this is just a small dose of it, but my reason for sharing this is to say I’m here, I feel this, and books like (Don’t) Call Me Crazy are needed. They let people know they’re not alone, that there are others who understand.

When I saw that Nash Summers made one of my favorite series available as a paperback, I HAD to get it. I’d very rarely laughed out loud from a characters doing and dialogue and Maps had me doing that all the time. Maps and Lane had me shipping them since the moment they met. If you love to laugh, if you love love, and if you love ridiculous yet charming characters then this series is the one for you. As a rec of sorts—what’s your favorite rom-com book/movie?

A couple weekends ago I went to #floridasupercon, and for the first time in the history of ever I was able to find Captive Prince merch. I was so excited I forgot to get a card or the name of the artist so if it’s yours let me know! The Captive Prince Trilogy is one of my favorite series ever. I’ve followed it since it was just a web series, and if you guys could just understand how unbearable the wait for the final book was.... •

If you haven’t read it, you absolutely should. It’s the epitome of enemies-to-lover, but it’s also so cunning and intriguing. Filled with betrayals, shocking truths and so much political complots. But! Do read the warnings to the series on the website. This is a very violent and triggering read so do read up on it before forging ahead. Also, would anyone want to do a read along? •
