Reacting to Book Twitter’s Unpopular Opinions, Part Two // Friends to Lovers, 3-Star Ratings, & More!

A few months ago, I made a post reacting to book twitter’s unpopular opinions.

And I’m so happy you guys liked it!! A few commenters suggested that I make a part two, so here it is. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me their opinions when I asked on Twitter. ❀ (I tried to include everyone’s in this post, but I had to exclude some because I just couldn’t think of anything to say in response or the opinion was really similar to another one I got.)

Books I Plan to Read in September, ft. Raybearer, You Deserve Each Other, & More!

I’m posting something low-effort because school is killing me, look away.

I’m sure you’ve had enough of me complaining about school, so I’ll spare you the excuses! Today I’m just gonna list a few books I plan to read in the rest of September. I am 0% certain that I’ll manage to finish all of these before the month ends, but a girl can dream. (Also, I need to step up my reading game because The Starless Sea put me behind on my reading challenge. πŸ™ƒ I’m sure you’re judging me for not just lowering it but I’m too competitive for that okay.)

August Wrap-up // Starting School, Burning Out, & Being on TV??

Here is a thread of charities.

Recommending Some Diverse Books I’ve Read This Year!

Sadly, I’m running out of post ideas and burning out.

So I hope you can forgive me if this post isn’t very good and I’m less active these days. I scrapped a bunch of post ideas before I finally settled on recommending a few diverse books I’ve read this year. This is only a small selection of diverse books worth reading, and I could really do better at reading and promoting diverse books (we all could). But I hope you’ll find some books to pick up here! Ownvoices books are so important, and you should read them instead of books by problematic authors. πŸ™ƒ

5-Star Predictions Wrap-up + New Predictions, aka Will I Ever Rate a Book 5 Stars Again

Pretty on-brand of me to be posting this wrap-up late. 😎

You probably don’t remember, but back in December 2019, I posted my first 5-star predictions wrap-up, along with some new 5-star predictions. I gave myself until June 2020 to finish all the books, but that didn’t work out so well. [cough] because of The Starless Sea [cough]
