Books with Pastels covers that are perfect for Spring

Happy Spring for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere! Spring is the perfect season for those of us who crave picnics in the park and the sound of chirping friends. If you are like me, the thing you look forward to the most during spring is the pastels! Pastel eggs, pastel wardrobe, pastel home decor!

In honor of spring, I thought I would revamp my gorgeous book covers and phenomenal plots list with a spring edition.

My favorite quotes from my current Reads

We are now in the second half of Latinx heritage month, and I’ve finished one book on tbr. I may have gotten sidetracked by reading the Venatrix Chronicles (review to come), which has lots of action and adventure that I abandoned my current reads.

Blazewrath Games was amazing and immediately after I picked up Incendiary, but the novel wasn’t as fast paced as I liked so I then picked up Lobizona which was more my speed. As I’m slowly making my way through both novels, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite quotes from both.

Books to read this spooky season

Fall is officially here! And I know what you’re thinking- Umm, don’t you live in Southern California? Isn’t your fall nonexistent? 

And you would be right.

In my part of the world, there’s not an abundance of leaves changing color or the need to bundle up. But that won’t stop me from getting into the seasonal spirit. And one way I do that is by reading some paranormal fiction!

So here is a list of books I would like to read during spooky season and for the rest of fall.

Young adult novels for teens tired of Shakespeare

When I started this blog I was overwhelmed with the reading required for my major. My brain struggled to decode these older texts and by my 3rd year in college, I decided to mix in young adults novels in between reads.


Young adult novels have become very diverse and with the rise of Own Voices novels, I began to prefer these novels because I feel like they explore modern themes.


Not to hate on Shakespeare, but forbidden teenage romance like that of Romeo and Juliet do not speak to teens in the U.S as say Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give does.

The list I’ve complied contains YA books that hold similar plots and themes. Whether you’re in a book slump or looking for your next read, I hope you find this list helpful.

Books I read in April instead of finishing Six of Crows

Hey book lovers, I am back again this week, not with a book review but a collection of them. I feel like I’ve bombarded this blog with so many book reviews that I’m a little tired of them. So today, I felt like I would change things up and tell you about all the novels I read this month.

I had originally planned to finish my reread Six of Crows before Shadow and Bone premiered but these nine other novels were more tempting.

Some of the novels I am going to mention have their own published blog post already- I will speak on them briefly-but I will link their posts if you want to read more of my thoughts.
