My Year In Books: 2018

2018 was a very messed up year for me. If you go on my Patreon, I recently published a post discussing some of my personal reasons why 2018 was tough for me. You don’t have to pay to read it (I think? I’m still figuring Patreon out). I did this to provide some space between…

Blanca and Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore

Content Warnings: Violence/physical abuse, menstrual cramps described, challenged colourism. I was reading Blanca and Roja probably during the most stressful month of my semester, and I was that that might’ve ruined the book for me when I started it but I also knew I needed something to destress during the month and the only thing…

REVIEW: A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi

There’s a lot of things I loved about A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi.

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon.

Rating: 5 stars. Spoiler Free Review: From Twinkle With Love is an adorable and funny novel that will make you laugh out loud on one page, and make you cry in public on the next. I know that 16 year old me would’ve cried from joy because she would’ve seen a heroine just like her,…

Love, Hate & Other Filters

Spoiler Free: Love, Hate, and Other Filters is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a book about being a teenager, but it’s also so much more. It’s about love, family, schools, but also bigotry, hate, and talks extensively about how impressionable everyone is when we are young; how important it is to…
