Sometime After Midnight, Philips

Happy last day of Pride month! I went to LA Pride with my best friend a few weeks ago and it was incredible to see people rally together and express themselves and build an open and welcome community. I was so happy I got to go and support!

Milkman, Anna Burns

Alright y’all. Let’s talk about Anna Burns and Milkman. Let’s also talk about the arbitrary nature of art. I know this will come as a shock to all of you, but I have lots of feelings about both.

Tokyo Ueno Station, Yu Miri

I’m back! In case any of you were wondering, no, I’m not a technology wizard. My site has some technical issues so I had to call for back up. And then something about errors and bugs. But we’re officially good to go and I have A LOT to catch you up on! The internet may fail us but books never do.

Red, White & Royal Blue, Casey McQuiston

Another London read! Which seemed appropriate for this romance between the president’s son and the Prince of England. And it was a really good read y’all. Seriously, I was impressed with McQuiston.

Ready Player One, Cline

I’d heard a lot about this book. And since I had plenty of time to read on my plane ride to LONDON I figured I’d finally get around to Cline. Thank goodness I did. It was amazing.

The Proposal, Jasmine Guillory

This book was cute! Not a lot of intellectual simulation, or amazing writing, or inventive plot points, but Guillory definitely knows how to do cute! So if cute is what you aim for, then it’s probably worth it! But in all honesty, I was underwhelmed.

Daisy Jones & The Six, Jenkins Reid

Guess who just finished their Book of The Month Club March book! I’ll give you a hint, it’s me. And let me tell you, as someone who adores both books and music, I was really looking forward to Jenkins Reid’s latest work!

The Cabin at the End of the World, Tremblay

I read A Head Full of Ghosts by Tremblay in college for a mystery-horror project and just absolutely loved it. The writing was super impressive and the story was so good. And the fact that he was able to wrap it all up in social commentary was superb. So when I saw Tremblay’s recently released Cabin, and I saw Stephen King said it was Tremblay‚Äôs best work, I knew I needed to read it ASAP.
