Let’s just ignore my umm 4000 year disappearance and just talk about the cutest movie to hit the interwebs. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before! Watched it you guys and I only have one word; Loved it! That was two but gah! I just finished watching it and had to spew immediately! You guys it was the cutest, most almost perfect adaptation of the best high-school romance novel ever! I will bite you if you disagree.
Y’all amma assume we’ve all watched it (umm Netflix = air) so I wanna hear everyone’s thoughts because I really really liked it. One thing was so clear to me as I watched thing and that was that the movie has the spirit of the book, if that makes sense. This movie was so cute it was like watching a unicorn poop out rainbows.
T.A.T.B.I.L.B. is such a faithful adaptation… but come on, it’s Netflix so how crazy a direction could they have steered it, plus it’s T.A.T.B.I.L.B. where else could this story have gone except down the same path. Right?
Ok can we pause! I literally just finished watching the movie and ugh all I can think about is the deliciousness of those boys. Oof the guy that plays Peter K. daaaaaamn. (Babe, if you’re reading this…sorry!)
Okay okay, cute boys aside this movie was weirdly relatable to me in a way the book wasn’t. You know how teen movies directed/written by adults can sometimes be super cringy, this one wasn’t! I really saw myself in all these movie characters; How I would rather jump off a cliff that face my problems, Peter K’s ready selfie face, Lara Jean’s kick ass style (haha who I’m I kidding), crazy ex drama (damn). Ooooo okay but if I had to pick… probably the most relatable thing about this movie was when Lara Jean’s choker was on backwards. This is like the most annoying thing in the world to me, why can’t chokers just stay on the way they’re supposed to!!
This movie in one sentence: Relationships can be toxic, girls can be bitches and love sometimes sucks.
There is one teeny tiny thing that irked me, and I don’t want to be that person, I wish I was pretentious and be all “I don’t see color” but uuhhhhhh why was Lara Jean the only half-Asian in her half half-Asian family? OK lets just agree that genetics happened (see I can be reasonable). You can tell I read the book because I’m bitchin’ about this lol
That Peter K.though, deeeeyyyuuuummm!
Shhhhh…. Did you hear that? No? To bad, you just missed the satisfying smack of me slipping on the old blogger gloves again. I know my return is as unexpected as Ed Sheeran in Game of Thrones or Bilbo Baggins going on a journey but I’m back! I hope y’all missed me (or at the very least noticed I was gone lol.). Weirdly though, getting back into blogging does feels kinda like slipping into an old pair of gloves or an old sweater – tight and just uncomfortable enough to make you feel….well, uncomfortable. But hopefully I’ll find my grove again because book blogging was so much fun and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I logged into this old thing.

Happy Friday Book Nation!
So I’m just getting back into the swing of things so I have little to actually recap in terms of blog posts for the month but I did read a ton of books and I’m really excited to share them with you. I’ll just jump right in because I’ve got nothing else to write in this intro.

So obviously this post isn’t for the people who run book blogs/vlogs and are reading this because clearly you don’t need any of my help in the reading department. This post is for the people who’ve never read a single full length chapter novel in their lives but are trying to change their wierd ways. This post is for the dear readers who stumbled across my blog and wondered how this strange breed of creatures could possibly exist on the Internet with the seemingly sole intent of flailing about books.

You know what’s funny? On my side of the world it’s the equivalent of winter because it’s so bloody cold and everyone on the internet keeps going on about the sun and summer break and all the books they’ll read while I’m here just about drowning in university work. It sucks, let me tell you.
Anyway I figured when most people think summer and books, they think fluffy contemporary romances but for this post I wanted to go a different direction and list for you guys some of my favorite hot reads (see what I did there… Coz it’s summer… Lol) and whether you want to feel the heat while chilling on the beach somewhere or a steamy read to curl up in bed with in the cold months, this list has got you covered!
