The Sun is Also a Star was the last book I read. It took me a while to get into this novel, but once I got into it, I was hooked and eager for the next chapter. Check out my review here.
Top Picks: Book(s) that have been recommended to you based on a book you have previously read
I haven’t gotten around to reading my book recs, but I have been recommending books based on my favorite trope.
Based on the enemies’ lover trope, my friend Nessa over at StokedStroke recommended The Folk of Air series. I enjoyed it! It’s more the darker side of fantasy YA. Given the first chapter opens with murder and kidnapping.
The Night Circus was another rec I received based on the enemies to lovers trope. This book didn’t work out quite well for me. I felt like there wasn’t much tension between the main characters because they immediately start dating. There was no angst, no, oh no I’m crushing on the enemy. So I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book.
Recently Added: The last book you bought
A Deadly Inside Scoop
The last book I bought was, A Deadly Inside Scoop, not only was the cover enticing, hello deadly looking ice cream and cat, but the blurb also sold me. A murder mystery in a small town featuring a Black-owned family ice cream parlor, I can’t wait to read it!
Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about (Two you’ve read + Two you have no interest in)
All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
I had a hard time getting through this book. My biggest issue was that I found Laura Jean boring. LJ keeps to herself a lot, which is fine, but I felt because she didn’t go out or hang with friends the novel dragged on. For my full review, read it here.
Six Of Crows
5 Stars to this novel and its sequel. I loved this duology so much. This novel is also on the darker side of YA Fantasy, but the way it’s written will have you devouring this book.
I have no interest in the Hunger Games or anything John Green writes.
Comedies: A funny book
Princess Jellyfish is not only a comedic manga series, but it’s full of so many characters readers will instantly fall in love with, read my review for the first volume here.
Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king

Watch It Again: A book/series you want to reread
The Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
These books were published when I was transitioning from High School and into College. This series also pushed me into trying my hand at writing Sci-fi. This series meant a lot to me as a young adult, but I want to reread them now and see if they’ll blow me away as they once did.
Documentaries: A nonfiction book you’d recommend to everyone
Know My Name by Chanel Miller
Chanel’s Memoir is on the heavy side, but I personally feel like it’s a memoir that incoming college students and current one should read. Despite many colleges attempting to educate its students about sexual assault, it still happens amongst college campuses. Well, Chanel wasn’t even a student at Stanford when it happened to her, and the way Stanford handled it should alarm you.
Action and Adventure: An Action Packed Book
Chilling Effect is full of adventure and action. There were times in this novel where I wished the action would slow down lol.
New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read
The Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
I can’t wait for The Cemetery Boys to drop in September. I love paranormal novels and when there’s a ghost involved I’m sold. A Ghost romance? Oooof I love it!
