Library Haul // ft. contemporaries galore (!!)

It’s no secret that I love the library.

One of the best things about summer is that I’m able to go to the library more often. And when I do go, I actually end up reading the books I got, and it makes me very happy!

A ton of the books I got are contemporaries that have been on my TBR for ages, so I’m really excited to see if y’all have read them and what your thoughts were.

Why I Still Love Dystopians + A Dystopian Review (!!)

Confession time. I still love dystopian books.

I made that sound so dramatic, but for some reason I feel like dystopian books are so underrated these days. These days meaning in 2018. I mean, I can’t think of a dystopian book that I’ve heard people talking about that was published recently. And that makes me sad, because the thing is, I love dystopian.
