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. (source)

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…
I’m so excited to be bringing you the cover reveal of one of my favorite authors’ upcoming release.
I’ve loved Katie McGarry ever since I read Nowhere But Here two years ago. Ever since then, my obsession with her storytelling has only grown and every time I hear she has a new release, I squeal!
And I also happened to squeal the moment I saw this cover. If you’re a Katie McGarry fan like me, I know you will, too. I’ve included more info on McGarry and her books underneath the reveal, as well as the blurb for her upcoming one.

Not gonna lie, reading a book that everybody is in love with is great. It’s easy to jump into a discussion, awesome to hear that other people share your feels, and it just makes you feel included. BUT! Never underestimate the power of a not-so-popular novel! (Even though I most definitely do sometimes.) Here are seven reasons why I love underrated reads:

~ SPOILER-FREE REVIEW ~
I finished this about twenty minutes ago and I’m still just… wow.
I haven’t read a mystery in a really long time mostly because I never find the right one. It’s either too horror-y or too tame. Or it’s the perfect balance, but the murderer is so obvious that I might as well flip to the back just to read the full explanation. Or the murderer is so far-fetched that it really doesn’t even make sense. But this book. This book… Continue reading “A Study in Charlotte| Every Mystery Should Be Like This”
Okay, so this is my first official post on my blog! I’ve never done this before so I’m a little nervous but also super excited!
This is the part where I talk about what’s going to be on this blog, right? Well… I don’t know. It’s all going to be very bookish. Tags, Wrap-Ups, Reviews, Discussions, and I guess anything else that pops into my head!
I love books, so, so much. I read Young Adult, specifically. I also love, writing, movies (especially Marvel), piano, dominoes, backgammon, oranges, Tollhouse Cookie Dough, and everything Harry Potter.
I’ve had a bookstagram for just about a year and then I finally worked up the courage to start my blog *squeeee*. I hope you guys enjoy!
