Can we all take a moment and gaze in awe at this stunning cover? It is GORGEOUS 🤩 And if you don't have a copy yet, let me tell you. The way the colors swirl and pop is frankly magical. I don't know what alchemy is at play here, but I could stare at this [...]

Are You Ready To Go ‘Down With This Ship’

I think it's safe to say we all have 'ships that we've had to fight to defend. *cough Reylo cough* Anyway. This book is all about those ship wars. And I totally ship it. Kole Miller loves writing. In fact, her writing gets more views than any other student in her creative writing class, or [...]

Sorority – Review

"Pledges don't want pity. They just want to endure." Before I begin, this book has some serious triggers in it. Eating disorders, self-harm, drug use, abuse, and addition, animal cruelty, bullying, and I'm sure I missed a few. Basically, if it's upsetting and triggering, it's probably in the book. Sorority is a difficult book to [...]
