Hello sunshines! 🔆
The month is more than half way over so I did want to remind you all that I am currently hosting a GIVEAWAY for a $10 USD Amazon Gift Card! A second winner will be chosen if I gain 600 WP Followers AND 950 Twitter Followers! Make sure to check out my BLOGIVERSARY POST for more details and be sure to ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!!
For today’s post I will be attempting to complete THE BOOK TITLES Tag! I saw this post originally on @ Lost In A Story and it looked really fun! To complete this tag, you simply answer each question/statement with a title of a book! Let’s get started, shall we? ⬇️
1. TITLE THAT’S THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE
I really liked Lia’s response with THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER by Stephen Chbosky, but I didn’t want to put the same thing xD Instead, I think I’m going to go with FALLING INTO PLACE by Amy Zhang — I’d like to think that eventually things will figure themselves out and my life with fall into place!
2. TITLE THAT DESCRIBES YOUR PERFECT WEEKEND
THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY by David Levithan — an endless weekend with tons of options and possibilities to get away!

Hello sunshines! 🔆 It breaks my heart to realize that it is almost August. August = school = horror. But as the title of this posts says, tomorrow is my Blogiversary, so that makes this upcoming month a little better!! ✨
ANYA’S GHOST BY VERA BROSGOL
MY RATING: 3.5 out of 5 stars
It is no surprise that I only read one novel this month that isn’t even an ACTUAL novel, but a graphic novel. I thought this was going to take me out of my slump, but it looks like I have to read a different novel to do that. I do have a review planned for this one later on in the week so stay tuned for that! I started reading 21 Proms, which is consisted of short stories by multiple authors, so we’ll see if that novel does the trick.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am back with another Captivating Covers post! Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. Every week or so, I share a cover of a novel that I find to be Captivating. It doesn’t have to be one you’ve read, just one that you enjoy! You can add your own twist to it, but I like to include the book synopsis & book details. So, I created this meme to share my findings with you all! 📚
Title: YOU IN FIVE ACTS
Author: Una LaMarche
Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary
Published: November 1st, 2016
I’ve become aware of how much I love silhouettes, and how much better they make book covers in my opinion. I’m not really sure what this book is about hence I only picked it because of the cover, but I’ll share the synopsis with you guys down below! I am aware that it doesn’t have the BEST ratings, but I still say give it a read and let me know what you think! (:

Title: Eliza and Her Monsters
Author: Francesca Zappia
Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary

I love, love, love how there’s so much going on on this cover — there’s a female figure on the front, yes, but she has hands covered in paint!! As a fellow painter, this excited me because we don’t see many MC’s that have that artistic/creative ability. Also, the clash between realism & fictional aspects on the cover really caught my attention.
