Another week, another Tuesday! I’m going to be completely swamped this time next week (THREE MIDTERMS NEXT TUESDAY? GOODBYE!) so I moooost likely won’t be able to post then, BUT I’m going to take the opportunity to post my #TopTenTuesday now. This is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, and if you’re interested, you can find a list of the future (and past) prompts by clicking on her blog name.
Happy Sunday! How are you guys doing? I spent all day doing readings for my classes. My eyes are throbbing, but THANK GOD it’s a holiday tomorrow. I’m most likely sleeping until sunset. This week, I decided to join in…
I finished reading Not Your Villain a day after putting down Not Your Sidekick, and I can honestly say that these two books have made their way in the center of my heart. I have an obvious soft spot for superhero stories, and even more so when not everything is as they seem. There’s also just something about reading from the point of view of teens determined to prove that justice always prevails in the end.
There are no words to describe the emotional journey I went through reading We Set the Dark on Fire. This book completely had me in a completely different headspace from the time I picked it up to the time I put it down, and the only thing I can say is that Tehlor Kay Mejia is an amazing writer.
It’s no secret I’m a fan of romance. Who isn’t? Every time the month of February starts, I find myself nearing more and more romantic books, and this year is no different. For me, there’s really no better way to spend Valentine’s Day curled up in bed with someone I love (though he’s currently away for a semester abroad so I’m missing half of my regular tradition this year…) reading my favorite novel. As such, I’ll be spending the day reading We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia—an empowering sapphic book eerily similar to the situation faced by refugees worldwide, particularly the case of the Mexico/U.S. border.
