Hello sunshines! 🔆 It brings such joy to me as I get to say that it is FINALLY FRIDAY!! Friday’s are always good as it is the last day of the weekdays and the start of the weekend! Friday Finds is a meme hosted by @adailyrhythm. It is a chance for you to showcase the books you’ve ‘found’ and added to your TBR list! They do not have to be books you purchased and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, online, library, etc. Here’s what I’ve found since my last Friday Finds (:
Five hundred great works of art from all periods and regions in the world have been carefully selected and are arranged in chronological order, breaking through the usual geographical and cultural boundaries of art history to celebrate the vast range of human artistry.
Grace wants out. Out of her house, where her stepfather wields fear like a weapon and her mother makes her scrub imaginary dirt off the floors. Out of her California town, too small to contain her big city dreams. Out of her life, and into the role of Parisian artist, New York director—anything but scared and alone. Enter Gavin: charming, talented, adored. Controlling. Dangerous. When Grace and Gavin fall in love, Grace is sure it’s too good to be true. She has no idea their relationship will become a prison she’s unable to escape…

Hello sunshines! 🔆 How are you all on this lovely Wednesday? It is the last full week of April and I am so read for this month to be over! I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but I’m hoping the more I say it the faster it’ll come true 😅 Anyways, Which Cover Wednesday is a post hosted by Sumaya @suereadingcorner. For this post, you choose two different covers of the same book — the books can have different publishers, different formats, etc. Then you decide which one you think is more appealing. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but if you guys ever have theme recommendations or recs in general for WCW, please feel free to comment them! Let’s get onto the debate!
INTO THE WATER BY PAULA HAWKINS
I love, love, love the first cover. The colors are vibrant, the graphics are clear, and whole cover is cohesive all together. The second cover is okay, but I love the detail of the first cover.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 It is finally Friday and I could not be happier! I hope you all had an amazing week and you got a lot of your responsibilities completed! I am back with another Friday Finds, so let’s get to it!
Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot…
Megan Henske isn’t one to heed warnings…When the last letters in her alphabet cereal are D, I, and E, she doesn’t crawl right back into bed. When her online girlfriend won’t text a photo, she just sends more of herself. And when she realizes that Cynthia, her boss at a Chicago ghost tour company, isn’t joking about making stops more haunted by killing people there, she doesn’t quit her job—she may even help…

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Happy Tuesday! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book. As always if you have as much as I do with this post, feel free to link me to your posts! (:
AESTHETICALLY PLEASING COVERS
I think we can all agree that cover lust is a thing, and sometimes we pick up a novel off the shelves just because the cover catches our eyes — and if you say you haven’t thought this before then you
are a liar are such a great person.
SOMEONE RECOMMENDS THE BOOK TO ME
Now this doesn’t happen with just anyone — I know a few bloggers here and there that have similar book-tastes to me. When they recommend novels to me, I look into them and usually end up adding it to my TBR. It isn’t an insta-buy, but I do want to read it.
MY FAVORITE AUTHORS BLURBS IT
If I see that Nicola Yoon, John Green, or Jennifer Niven blurbs a novel then there is a 99% chance that I will look into the novel with a 98% chance that I’ll actually buy it. They don’t even have to have a blurb; if they promote it on social media or even mention a novel, you better believe that I am adding it to my TBR.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 We are halfway through the week and I am already ready for it to be Friday!! I am going two for two as I am posting a WCW week to week (surprise, surprise 😅)
LABYRINTH LOST BY ZORAIDA CORDOVA
You guys know that I go crazy for the color purple, but the first cover is also pretty good as the colors are pretty contrasting. However, how many covers do we have in YA that have a female on it? Yeah, so I’m going with the second cover!

Hello sunshines! 🔆 It is finally Friday and I could not be happier to be home and somewhat care-free! I’m really not sure if I have many Finds to share, but I guess we’ll see, lol.
It’s time to meet your new roomie. When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl’s summer — and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room…
“Something does exist. I saw. It’s a place. Like this but different.” “Okay, so let’s say we do reach her, that something like that is even possible. Then what?” “Then we ask her to come back.” Eden: As far as coma patients go, Eden’s lucky. She woke up. But still, she can’t shake the feeling that she might have dragged something back from the near-afterlife.
Joe: Joe visits the hospital every day, hoping that Jaz, his lifelong friend, will wake up…

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am very happy to say that we are halfway through this week — next thing you know it’ll be the weekend! It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve posted a WCW, so I am back with another one! Which Cover Wednesday is a post hosted by Sumaya @suereadingcorner. For this post, you choose two different covers of the same book — the books can have different publishers, different formats, etc. Then you decide which one you think is more appealing.

FROSTBLOOD BY ELLY BLAKE
Hmmm I don’t know, both are pretty unique in their own ways. I enjoy the graphic on the first cover, but the second cover has a great font. However, I think I’m going to go with the first cover because I enjoy the tagline more xD
