Top Ten Tuesday- Summer TBR

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana  @thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we will all make a list based on that. We also have the option of doing our own thing. This week the topic is Summer TBR. I came up with a list of books I hope to read before September. Some are challenge books, and some are just books I really want to read. I might change it up if I get a new book, so this is just a jumping-off point.  Physical Books 1- With The Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo 2- Hamilton & Peggy: A Revolutionary Friendship by L. M. Elliott 3- Everything Will Be Ok Advice for Young Women (From A Former Young Women) by Dana Perino (Finish) 4- The Downstairs Girl by Stacy Lee 5- Working on A Song The Lyrics of Hadestown by Anais Mitchell Ebooks 6- Something to Talk about by Meryl Wilsner 7-Like A Love Story by Abdi Nazemian 8- Now That I’ve Found You

Cheer Up: Love and Pompoms by Crystal Frasier & Val Weiss (E-ARC) Review

  Hi! When I saw this on Net Galley Read Now I knew I needed to read it. I try and read books that are new to me or books that I don’t read a lot of expanding my reading horizons. This graphic novel was so cute and I just loved it. Title: Cheer Up: Love and Pompoms Authors: Crystal Frasier and Val Weiss (illustrations)  Genre: Contemporary, Graphic Novel Pages: 128, Rep: Trans MC, POC MC, LGBTQ+, Add to Goodreads & Storygraph:  Goodreads  &  Storygraph     Characters Oh, my goodness I fell so hard for these characters. The story follows Annie, who is a senior and needs to get some more extra circulars for college. I adored how no non-sense and how much Annie cared about her best friend Beatrice. The supporting cast of other cheerleaders was also excellent, and I enjoyed getting to know them in this novel. The graphic novel might be short, but the characters really pack a punch. I also loved seeing all the representation in these characters. All the chara

Top Ten Tuesday- Freebie- LGBTQ+ reads for Pride Month

  Hi! Happy Pride! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana posts a prompt, and we book bloggers are challenged to write a response to that topic. There is also the option of doing our own thing and doing what we want. This week it is a freebie, and because June is Pride Month, I thought I would feature my favorite LGTBQ+ reads. Gay 1- Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli I discuss this book a lot on this blog but I love Simon and Bram in this book. I think the relationship is so sweet, even if they have a bit of a rocky start. The supporting characters are what make this book what it is. 2- Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston I feel like many people have met Alex and Henry by now. If you haven’t, I recommend this New Adult romance following the son of the female president and the prince of England. This is a

Top Ten Tuesday- Books or series to have in your Beach Bag

Hi! I took an unexpected hiatus last week.  Jana hosts the Top Ten Tuesday @ .thatartsyreadergirl . Each week, Jana will post a topic and we book bloggers write a response to that prompt. We can have the option of going rogue and doing our own thing. This week, the topic was supposed to be book quotes about x theme, but I went rogue. This is Ten Books to have in your beach bag from years ago.  Middle Grade 1- Fearless (Fearless Series Book 1) by Mandy Gonzalez This was one of my favorite books this year as I’m sure you know because I’ve talked about it a lot. I think this would be a great read for teens or adults for the summer because there is a light mystery. While this might be better for the fall, I still think it’s a perfect summer read because it doesn’t take a long time to read. 2- The Chance to Fly by Ali Storker and Stacy Davidowitz I loved this novel! This contemporary checked all my boxes, and I think that both teens and adults would love this. If you love theatre,

   Hi! I’m going to start High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 2  today. To celebrate the new season, I am doing the High School Musical Book tag! I pulled the tag from-  Here.   The Start of Something New: A new favorite genre/author/series I will not stop talking about these books, so I think you all know but my new favorite series is Fearless by Mandy Gonzalez. Mandy Gonzalez is also a new favorite author.         What I’ve Been Looking For: A book that has everything you’ve always wanted I’m a tough reader so I’m going to go with a book that came close. Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I loved the story, the characters, and the romance was just–chefs kiss-.       Fabulous: A book with the biggest diva I’m not sure what book to say here. The one that came to my mind first was When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton because of Beatriz. I understand where Beatriz is coming from, but I still think she can be a diva.     Boys

Phoebe Unfired by Amalie Jahn- E –Arc Review

Hi! This book was Read Now on NetGalley, so I knew I needed to read it. The book was free for an honest review, but this doesn’t affect my opinions outlined in this review. Info Title: Phoebe Unfired Author: Amalie Jahn Expected Publication: June 15 th , 2021 by Bermlord Edition read: Digital E-ARC Add to Goodreads: Here Rating: 5 stars (*****)   Characters The characters in the book were so much fun to read about, so I knew I needed to give them a star in my review. Phoebe was the kind of character who didn’t have many friends until she met JP in the subway, and then he introduced her to other friends. Seeing Phoebe grow as she learned more about herself and how she interacted with her friends was lovely. This was also a group of friends that helped each other, and they were all there when someone needed something. The novel is also filled with lovely supporting characters like Toby, Phoebe’s brother, who Phoebe just wants to protect. Walter, Phoebe’s boss at Dus
