I am not the best at making and keeping resolutions. Well, technically, I'm good at making them just not so much the other part. I resurrected this blog and my Booktube channel which both help me maintain a healthy brain, but I'm terrible at posting and keeping up with both. I'm gonna try and get better, though. Basically, this is a hold myself accountable post and I charge all 3 of you reading this to backhand me across the face if I start to fall off the wagon. Seriously, ask me for my number and I will give it to you and you can text me incessantly if I haven't been living up to my own expectations. Cool? Cool. Anyways, here are the goals I've come up with for the year. reading goals: 52 books this year (one book a week) 📖 read some non-fiction read some middle grade continue finding and supporting diverse authors/works try to read at least a little bit every day Continue Reading +

The Bone Witch is one of my all-time favorite YA series so I was very excited to see what else Rin Chupeco had up her sleeve and The Never Tilting World does not disappoint. There's just something about the worlds she creates that really resonate with me on multiple levels.

I super loved Rebel Seoul. Two of my favorite things in the world are Pacific Rim and kdrama so when I heard about this series, I was already totally freaking in. Honestly, this duology holds a special place in my heart simply because I've been a huge fan of Korean dramas for years now and to see some of these tropes and character types play out in novel format was just *chef's kiss* for me. It also contains a good dose of anime inspiration (particularly with regard to mechs) so yeah, big fan. *I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Listen, I freaking love space books. They are absolutely my jam and there's a good chance if a book is set in space, I'm going to love it. That being said, this book was no exception. I chose to read this for my NEWTs and it came highly recommended by two Booktubers I enjoy watching (shoutout to readywithcindy and Books With Alyssa J) so I was excited to pick it up, finally. It had been sitting on my shelf for YEARS and I was so mad I didn't read it sooner. I definitely plan to continue on with the series, but let's talk about THIS SUPER AWESOME  SPACE BOOK.
