*rubs hand*

*let’s DO THIS*

Hello bloggers and the world beyond!

Today, is the day you shall read a…

a……

BOOKISH

POSY

I meant..posT. I find that typo hilarious tho, so I’ll let that be ZD.

ENTER SEP’S EARRING-

Hi y’all, let’s get started before this gets awkward.

Although you’re reading words by an earring.

It’s awkward.

Already.

ANYWAYS CHOP CHOP WE NEED TO DO THIS.


So I realised, I hadn’t really explained what I was going to do here. I’ll go through my GR TBR (DAMN! that sounds cool). And I’ll pick out rom com books I absolutely forgot about.

Nice Sep, looking at your TBR before boards and pre boards.

l-o-v-e-l-y.


Okay, so, stats.

Want to Read- 126

THAT IS SO LOW. It’s because I don’t use GR much, I used to but, not anymore. That’s less than my spotify liked songs. 0_0

Read- 63

I assure you, I’ve read more than 63 books in my lifetime. Why don’t I have a genie to update goodreads.😭😭

Currently Reading- 1

I-I bet I’ve finished whatever I’m currently reading.

Oh

Er.

UM.

I haven’t finished it. BUT I’VE READ OTHER BOOKS TOO. I’m in a insurgent slump. 😀


my gorgeous rom com tbr

1. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

30038855

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.

Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.

When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.

Oh. My. God.

THE SYNOPSIS. IS. AWESOME.

I need to read this. YOU. Need to read this.

2. Not Here to Be Liked by Michelle Quach

54569509. sy475

Emergency Contact meets Moxie in this cheeky and searing novel that unpacks just how complicated new love can get…when you fall for your enemy.

Eliza Quan is the perfect candidate for editor in chief of her school paper. That is, until ex-jock Len DiMartile decides on a whim to run against her. Suddenly her vast qualifications mean squat because inexperienced Len—who is tall, handsome, and male—just seems more like a leader.

When Eliza’s frustration spills out in a viral essay, she finds herself inspiring a feminist movement she never meant to start, caught between those who believe she’s a gender equality champion and others who think she’s simply crying misogyny.

Amid this growing tension, the school asks Eliza and Len to work side by side to demonstrate civility. But as they get to know one another, Eliza feels increasingly trapped by a horrifying realization—she just might be falling for the face of the patriarchy himself. 

First of all, the cover is so cute.

And second of all, Eliza seems like a strong protagonist. I’m not ashamed to admit I’m reading this only for her.

3. I love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn

*guys this is out of topic, but I saw a real cute book and I added it to my tbr it’s called As if on cue by Marisa Kanter*

41473865

Kimi Nakamura loves a good fashion statement.

She’s obsessed with transforming everyday ephemera into Kimi Originals: bold outfits that make her and her friends feel like the Ultimate versions of themselves. But her mother disapproves, and when they get into an explosive fight, Kimi’s entire future seems on the verge of falling apart. So when a surprise letter comes in the mail from Kimi’s estranged grandparents, inviting her to Kyoto for spring break, she seizes the opportunity to get away from the disaster of her life.

When she arrives in Japan, she’s met with a culture both familiar and completely foreign to her. She loses herself in the city’s outdoor markets, art installations, and cherry blossom festival — and meets Akira, a cute aspiring med student who moonlights as a costumed mochi mascot. And what begins as a trip to escape her problems quickly becomes a way for Kimi to learn more about the mother she left behind, and to figure out where her own heart lies.

In I Love You So Mochi, author Sarah Kuhn has penned a delightfully sweet and irrepressibly funny novel that will make you squee at the cute, cringe at the awkward, and show that sometimes you have to lose yourself in something you love to find your Ultimate self. 

I want to read this book purely because of the cover and the hype. : ).That’s it. Literally.

4. Heiress Apparently by Diana Ma

51075332

The first book in an epic and romantic YA series following the fictionalized descendants of the only officially recognized empress regent of China

Gemma Huang is a recent transplant to Los Angeles from Illinois, having abandoned plans for college to pursue a career in acting, much to the dismay of her parents. Now she’s living with three roommates in a two-bedroom hovel, auditioning for bit roles that hardly cover rent. Gemma’s big break comes when she’s asked to play a lead role in an update of M. Butterfly filming for the summer in Beijing. When she arrives, she’s stopped by paparazzi at the airport. She quickly realizes she may as well be the twin of one of the most notorious young socialites in Beijing. Thus kicks off a summer of revelations, in which Gemma uncovers a legacy her parents have spent their lives protecting her from—one her mother would conceal from her daughter at any cost.

The synopsis is giving me Crazy Rich Asians/ Princess Diaries vibes, and I am so here for it. Also the cover, I love that cinema/ photoframe vibe!

5. Hot British Boyfriend by Kristy Boyce

53402140

After a horrifying public rejection by her crush, Ellie Nichols does what any girl would do: she flees the country. To be more precise, she joins her high school’s study abroad trip to England. While most of her classmates are there to take honors courses and pad their college applications, Ellie is on a quest to rebuild her reputation and self-confidence. And nothing is more of a confidence booster than getting a hot British boyfriend.

When Ellie meets Will, a gorgeous and charming Brit, she vows to avoid making the same mistakes as she did with the last guy she liked. Which is why she strikes up a bargain with Dev, an overachieving classmate who she’s never clicked with, but who does seem to know a lot about the things Will is interested in—if he helps her win over her crush, then she’ll help him win over his.

But even as Ellie embarks on a whirlwind romance, one that takes her on adventures to some of England’s most beautiful places, she still needs to figure out if this is actually the answer to all her problems…and whether the perfect boyfriend is actually the perfect boy for her.

I shall not explain why I’m going to read this, ZD ZD.
