Review: More Than Just a Pretty Face by Syed M. Masood

Hi readers!

July has been such a great reading month, and I have been devouring what I have read (see my reviews here, here, and here)! Except since I have been reading at a faster pace than I usually do (I mean, during the school months I’m lucky if I have the energy to read one book), this means more reviews. I’m thinking of possibly doing wrap-up posts, although I haven’t done those in foreverrr, that way I can write more discussion/other blog content as well!

Discussion: Dealing with Overwhelming TBRs

Hi readers!

So…I think this is my first official discussion post ever since I started this book blog in 2017! 😯 I don’t think I had many things I wanted to discuss in the first place (or at least coherently). But! I would love to write more discussion and recommendation posts for Lyrical Reads, so why not start today?

Review: Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Hi readers!

One of the things I love about summer is that I have a bit more time to read. Another thing I love about this season (minus the heat—I can’t stand it) are the good memories that I’ve come to associate with cool evenings and gorgeous sunsets. There’s something very freeing about running around in the grass, barefoot, and feeling the rush of the wind on your face.

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon reminded me of the excitement of newness and beginnings that summertime brings, especially when you’re still in high school.

Mini Reviews: Monday’s Not Coming // The Wicker King

Hi readers!

I’m back with some more mini reviews! Summer is always when I have more time (and braincells lol) to read, and luckily, I’ve been reading some incredible books lately (titles are Goodreads pages)! These books are both thrillers, and they both cover some very heavy contents, so please be safe if you read these books (content warnings, that are known, are listed)! 💞

The C/K-Dramas I’ve Watched: Definitely Ranked

Hello readers/listeners/watchers!

I can never resist a good ranking. I love ranking things (for some reason—maybe it’s the ordering?), and back in March and April I watched a lot more dramas than I do pretty much in a year, so I thought it was a good time to rank all the dramas (mostly Korean but a few Chinese shows) I’ve watched.

Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag: 2020 Edition

Hi readers!

So…we are officially halfway through 2020. Naturally, I am late to this tag (what’s new), but, alas, I am here!! Apparently the last time I did this tag was two years ago 😬 and I actually distinctly remember writing it haha.

But, anyway, onto the tag!

Review: On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

Hi readers!

Sometimes it just hits me how much I love reading. I love diving headfirst into a story as soon as I open the cover (or open the book on my Kindle). I love the feeling of being sucked into the world and the characters and feeling an indescribable attachment to them. Angie Thomas’ sophomore novel, On the Come Up wholeheartedly reminded me of this love.

I’m actually on my second read of this book, that’s how much I loved this story the first time around! This time, though, I’m listening to the audiobook, and it’s really cool to see Bri’s raps come to life.

Mini Reviews: All American Boys // Slay // Piecing Me Together

Hi readers!

I hope you are all doing well! I come today with three mini reviews of some of the books I read a little while ago. The titles are the links to the Goodreads pages!

Another note: I searched through the Content Warning Databased created by Fadwa @ Word Wonders and Laura @ Green Tea & Paperbacks to add to the content warnings I remembered!

I also want to mention that Black lives matter now and always, and we must actively work to support Black voices and strive towards being antiracist💞 (Black Lives Matter Carrd for resources, petitions, places to donate, etc.)
