Reproductive Rights; Recent NetGalley Requests

Speaking of abortion, earlier today I actually requested My Body, My Choice The Fight for Abortion Rights and was approved shortly after. I spent much of the day—what little wasn’t spent closely babysitting my newly neutered puppy (I feel like there’s a ridiculous irony here?)—reading it and I’m really impressed thus far. I’ve learned a lot…

Of Beauty and Nothingness [The Priory of the Orange Tree (-ish)] Blogger Support Feature

Hello, hello, hello, and welcome back to this weekend's first blogger support feature, this time featuring Heather @ Of Beauty and Nothingness. Now, a bit of a change from your typical support feature today is the fact that Heather is not just a bookblogger nor is she even primarily a book blogger. This is a little bit out…

The Opposite of Always [Justin A. Reynolds]; 2019 YA Releases

Yes, yes, yes, and yes. The Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds is definitely on my TBR. I have been dying to get my hands on a copy of this book for way too long now and it's honestly a little bit embarrassing since it's been published for a while now and I still haven't gotten a copy and I…

I really want to know, so if…

Amazing Children and the Names We Give Them; Recent NetGalley Requests

But, as always, I couldn't help myself. Honestly, though, I'm really looking forward to these two, obviously for very different…

NetGalley Buzz Books 2019 Fall YA Sampler

I love reading the samplers, particularly the ones for YA, so whenever they pop up on NetGalley I request them. The thing is, this gives me a wonderful opportunity to look into some books I'm considering requesting and decide which ones I'd actually enjoy reading. I was thrilled to see that this one included samples…

Virtually Yours [Sarvenaz Tash]

Honestly, I feel like Virtually Yours by Sarvenaz Tash had a pretty interesting premise and a fantastic start. Overall, I was really enjoying the read as I began. After a little while, though, I began to slowly lose interest until I realized that I didn't actually care about any of the characters in the story. Virtually Yours…
