It’s a fucking innuendo, really. All the puns intended. 😅 So you might like to think this just meant I spent all my time outside of work reading the book. No. I didn’t finish it faster. I had lots of things I needed to get done, lots of things I failed to get done, and […]Continue reading "“Georgia Peaches” and my low-key favorite concept photography"
It is quite timely that I would be finishing this book today, one month after a major event in my life — but also on the last day (as far as I know, and as far as I hope) of my physical therapy. I think this is what’s called happenstance, because it’s coincidental, but I […]Continue reading "Annie on My Mind // a soft classic lesbian romance"

I’d heard about “Dear […]Continue reading "“Dear Martin” by Nic Stone"
I finished a book trilogy — the first novel trilogy I’ve completed. It’s such a Big Deal I’ve brought in the first-letter drop-cap class (albeit visible only with wider screens). A Name Unknown reeled me in, even though I disliked White’s writing style. A Song Unheard proved White’s storytelling and writing style are two different […]Continue reading "An Hour Unspent // the end of the Shadows Over England trilogy"
My qualms with young adult (YA) fiction — as I’ve not yet dabbled in YA nonfiction — begins in the execution of, well, everything: character development, plot, setting, romance and relationships… There’s a saying that goes something like, “If you keep reading YA and hating it, maybe you just hate YA and should stop,” and […]Continue reading "When // romance is on the backburner in this one"
