“It has always been forever, for me, Sassenach” 

I’ve been looking forward to this book the most because I knew it was going to cause me the least pain. Somehow I’ve become so invested in this series and I can’t seem to put these books down or read anything else for that matter.

Dangerous.

Powerful.

A threat.

But I was more.

Oh sweet alien babies, I do love this world JLA has created. I don’t think there’s anything within the Lux world that I wouldn’t enjoy. The Burning Shadow lived up to my expectations after The Darkest Star and then some.

“D’ye think I don’t know?” he asked softly. “It’s me that has the easy part now. For if ye feel for me as I do for you-then I’m asking you to tear out your heart and live without it.”

This quote encapsulates exactly what Diana Gabaldon asked of me when I opened this book – to tear out my heart and live without it for 743 pages.

Sometimes our best action result in things that are most regrettable.

Whatever I thought this series was going to be about, I was sorely mistaken. I could not have been further from the truth, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this series way more than I thought I was going to

Again, but Better by Christine Riccio

Published by Wednesday Books on May 7, 2019

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Pages: 377

“You’re bolder than before.”

I’ve never read a book by a booktuber (to my knowledge) so Again, but Better was my first one. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this after watching Christine’s book writing series on YouTube. But my desperation to read it skyrocketed when I read the synopsis. I lived this life (studying abroad, trying to start over, being too shy) so I figured I would love it. Again, but Better wasn’t what I thought it was going to be, but in a good way.

“It’s not insane to imagine that sometimes even horrible people are searching for a way out of their own darkness.”

 

After spending the better part of the last year moping since the release of Restore Me, I’ve been anticipating reading this. I needed answers for the excruciating cliffhanger Tahereh Mafi left us with and Defy Me had all the answers.

“Nothing is impossible…when you’re me.”

 

 

 

Long time, no see. Classes kicked my you-know-what this semester and I had zero time for reading. Tonight I finished my first book since January and it was a spin-off to one of my all-time favorite series: the Lux series.

If you don’t like aliens, a story that will make you grin ear-to-ear, or an author who can write leading men like it’s second nature then this isn’t the book for you.

“Never say no when you really want to say yes.”

 

The conclusion to the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, Always and Forever, Lara Jean captivated me just as much as the books before it. Continue reading “Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #3)”

So much of love is chance. There’s something scary and wonderful about that.

 

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before since the day the movie was released on Netflix. I only recently read the first book and since August I’ve been dying to get my hands on the sequel, needing to know how Lara Jean’s story continues. And was it ever worth the wait? Yes.
