Claire is a sixteen-year-old fangirl obsessed with the show Demon Heart. FOREST is an actor on Demon Heart who dreams of bigger roles. When the two meet at a local Comic-Con panel, it’s a dream come true for Claire. Until the Q&A, that is, when Forest laughs off Claire’s assertion that his character is gay. Claire is devastated. After all, every last word of her super-popular fanfic revolves around the romance between Forest’s character and his male frenemy. She can’t believe her hero turned out to be a closed-minded jerk. Forest is mostly confused that anyone would think his character is gay. Because he’s not. Definitely not.
Unfortunately for Demon Heart, when the video of the disastrous Q&A goes viral, the producers have a PR nightmare on their hands. In order to help bolster their image within the LGBTQ+ community-as well as with their fans-they hire Claire to join the cast for the rest of their publicity tour. What ensues is a series of colorful Comic-Con clashes between the fans and the show that lead Forest to question his assumptions about sexuality and help Claire come out of her shell. But how far will Claire go to make her ship canon? To what lengths will Forest go to stop her and protect his career? And will Claire ever get the guts to make a move on Tess, the very cute, extremely cool fanartist she keeps running into? Ship It is a funny, tender, and honest look at all the feels that come with being a fan.

There simply isn’t enough space on their bookshelf for every book that want to own. Which, of course, leads to the dreaded solution of getting rid of some of them.

It can be a daunting task. Choosing what unread books to finally give up on, which recent reads aren’t worth the room. I myself recently unhauled about 30 books from my library. Hopefully some of these tips will help you next time you decided to do a little spring cleaning.

Why Don’t People Take YA Seriously? | Book Discussion

If you’re a YA fan and occasionally venture out into the world, you’ve probably been told that YA books aren’t real books.

I know that I have. From teachers, fellow students, even friends and adults. I mention how much I love reading but when I start rattling off some names and mention they’re YA sci-fi’s, contemporaries, or fantasies, people are quick to quirk a judgemental brow. Because of course, any books centering around teenagers can’t have any quality… right?

Good day, bibliophiles! I see a cover reveal in your future…

Blogging Through Twitter | BLOGGER MUST OR BUST?

Welcome, fellow bibliophiles, to the first installment of… BLOGGER MUST, OR BUST!

A few months ago in my blogiversary post (way back when, I know), I promised a new blog series was on the way to celebrate, which I promptly forgot about. Until now! Blogger Must or Bust will basically be me telling you a couple of things that think are blogger musts (as in, you should totally do this, it saves my life, you’re welcome for my great wisdom, etc.) or busts (not really necessary for #thatbloggerlife in my humble opinion).

Where Have I Been? (And What Have I Been Reading?)

These are both fair questions.

So, I’ve been on a sort of unofficial hiatus for the past few weeks and my only excuse is that my life got extremely busy when school started in August. And by the time October rolled around I was lost in schoolwork, music practice, and (trying) to read.

Which brings us to: What have I been reading?
