Revisiting The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

6:30 AM

Last month, Disney Books was kind enough to surprise me on NetGalley by granting my year-long wish for The Belles. Unfortunately, I had already read it mid 2018 at this point. THEN AGAIN, well, fortunately I am in the mood for a reread before diving into The Everlasting Rose.

15 Books Netflix Should Adapt

3:02 PM

Netflix has been acquiring rights to a lot of books lately. And I'm overwhelmed with excitement and nerves!!!!!!!! For obvious reasons. Let's not get into how greedy I'm feeling. BECAUSE, LIKE, I'VE GOT SOME SUGGESTIONS. Let's pretend I'm just brainstorming all the books that they NEED to adapt next for ~fun. Not because I'm considering the whole blackmailing approach and poking the good, kind, wonderful people at Netflix. Why, I never.

Okay, fine, I'm late to posting something again. As always, right? To be fair, I've been recovering from reading Red, White and Royal Blue for over a month.

Recently, her father has posted updates on her and her health and ongoing battle with Lyme Disease--moreso, has requested help from her followers in finding specific items.

Cover Reveal: The Solitary Queen by Nissa Leder

8:21 PM

If you follow my Instagram, you've already seen the reveal! If not, HI! It's time for the beauty that is The Solitary Queen to totally own you. I've been staring at this cover LITERALLY ALL DAY because, in the words of Lizzie McGuire the Wise: "This is what dreams are made of." Can we all just agree that Nissa Leder's books have the PRETTIEST covers?

I'm so beyond excited to dive into this series. Whims of Fae is one of my favourites And Nissa Leder had me at "spin-off" and "WITCHES" if we're being honest, here.
