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

October Wrap-up // I actually had fun this month??

Belated happy Halloween, everyone! My family and I haven’t celebrated Halloween in years (we’re not big on holidays and Halloween isn’t that popular here in the Philippines anyways), but I loved seeing everyone’s costumes on Twitter!

P.S. If any of you saw this post when I accidentally published it, I’m sorry. Take 2!
