Alright, I know I’m late, but I made it! I finally read Simon, aka the book that inspired Love, Simon, aka a huge deal. I read a bit about this when the movie was released, and saw that prominent figures (especially in the LGBTQ+ community) were buying out whole theatres so people could watch it. So I finally got my life together enough to read the book, and wow.
You touch me and I burn, and I could take everything burning down with me!
I bought Furyborn a couple months ago, almost on cover alone. I started reading it because I gave my boyfriend a list of titles, and he chose this. But once I started, I didn’t have any interest in stopping.
I was hearing tons of hype about this book for awhile before I started it, and I’m so grateful for that. I think everyone needs to read this; it belongs with The Pearl and Animal Farm as required reading. People need to read this book.
“There’s no turning back now. The devil has your soul.”
Friends and Fangirls I’m back at it with these Merciless books! Book III is a prequel; Origins of Evil takes place before Sofia ever moves to Friend, Mississippi. Guess who it stars?
I did not expect to enjoy this. I picked it up because I saw tons of bookstagrammers with it, and knew there was a Netflix movie coming out, and I wanted to compare the two. But about 100 pages into the book I realized that I had underestimated it, and I needed to finish it.
“I love you Sofia. But you’re evil.”
Fangirls, we know just how quickly I devoured book I of The Merciless, and I’d like you to know that I ate through II just as quickly. Since this is a sequel, there are Book I spoilers. Also, this is violent, so don’t read it if you don’t deal well with that.
I got an ARC of Planet Grief last week, and started reading it immediately. I wasn’t sure if it would be right for me, but it took me just a couple short sittings to get through, but I think I learned a lot.
