Hello readers! (listeners?) The past few years that I have been blogging, I have never been totally dedicated to showcasing the “lyrical” side of brand’s (?) name. Sure, there are books with lyrical prose but… More
If you saw some of my stories on Instagram, then you probably saw that I was at a few bookish events in New York City (none of which was BookExpo😂). The two events I went to was NOVL’s Author Breakfast with Brandy Colbert and the 2019 Blogbound Con! It was my first year going to either of these events, so I did not really know what was going to happen, but I saw so many people from bookstagram and bookish friends from Twitter!
So now, the recap of my fun and hectic bookish day:
Title: Ayesha At Last

*Note: I received an e-ARC of this title through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
A few months (?) ago, I shared the first part of Laura and Romie’s Seventeen Book Tag, the song edition. Since it’s been *checks calendar* three months since I did that tag, I think I’m way overdue for doing the second part of the tag series! I can say that since February, not only have I read ~a little bit~ more, but I’ve also fell deeper into the K-pop hole (hey there Stray Kids👀).
So without further ado, the Seventeen Book Tag: Members Edition!

I’m thrilled to bring you an author interview today! As you may recall, I reviewed Ashley Poston’s most recent novel, The Princess & the Fangirl, a few weeks ago. Since I loved the book so much, I decided to venture out and ask Ashley if I could interview her for Lyrical Reads! I think I squealed when I saw that she had agreed! I hope you guys enjoy reading this interview!
Today I come bearing a Top Ten Tuesday post that originated back in 2016!
…Nice job, Sara.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke & the Bookish, but the series moved over toThat Artsty Reader Girl as of January 2018!
I should probably warn you that a lot of these songs are going to be k-pop, but I will scatter some other genres in there, too, because I do like other kinds of music, I promise.
Title: The Princess & the Fangirl
Author: Ashley Poston
Release Date: April 2, 2019
Publisher: Quirk Books
Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary)
Since I don’t read much during the school year (unless you count historical and philosophical works that make my brain into mush), I thought posting a book tag would be a lot of fun! My friend, Laura (Green Tea & Paperbacks), and her friend, Romie, created three different tags for the kpop group, SEVENTEEN!
If you know a little bit about me, you know that I’ve recently become obsessed with kpop (particularly BTS, SEVENTEEN, GOT7, and NCT…so if you want to talk kpop, you know where to find me!!). It’s the perfect time for me to do the song edition of the SEVENTEEN book tag!
