Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Books| May 2019 Wrap-up

So, I attempted *attempted* to participate in two separate readathons this month. Was I successful? If by that you mean did I read quite a few books, then yes. If you mean did I complete all of the prompts, then no. I’m pretty sure each readathon had only *1* required book, and I failed to…

Asian Readathon TBR | May 2019

I am so pumped for this readathon. As May is Asian Pacific American Heritage month, what better way to get involved than by reading a fuck ton of books with Asian characters and/or written by Asian authors??? I'm grateful that Cindy @ readwithcindy organized this event because it seriously helped organize my TBR. The twist…

Don’t Date Rosa Santos | A Book Review

★★★★★ Don't Date Rosa Santos by Nina Moreno Ohhh my god. This book was so much more than I was expecting it to be. I will forever be obsessed with fluffy, cute YA contemporaries. This is that with a deeper, more meaningful layer hiding underneath. I wouldn’t say this book always reads as being realistic,…

I’ve read far too many books | March 2019 Wrap-Up

To be honest I have literally no idea how I was able to read so many books this month. I especially felt like I was slacking at the end of March because I wasn’t reading any audiobook. And yet. I was somehow able to read 13 whole freaking books! I’m probably a little too proud…

Descendant of the Crane | A Book Review

The Descendant of the Crane by Joan He ★★★★★ Okay. There are so many things in this book and I’m trying to organize my thoughts so I can give a coherent review of this story. (lol good luck, Ashley) This book is not fluffy. Every word included is deliberate and weaves together a story  that…
