PERFECT ON PAPER BY SOPHIE GONZALES: A VALIDATING BOOK AND GREAT PRIDE READ – AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

HAPPY PRIDE, EVERYONE! how are you?

this is my very first audiobook, and what a life-changing experience. frankly, there are a lot of perks audiobooks have to offer. my most favorite is that you can multitask. like, when i was listening and scrolling through twitter as the same time. or doing the dishes and the laundry. love it! although at first, it felt strange, but i got used to it and that is more important. if you have some audiobook recs, please comment them below!

for now, check out my thoughts on Perfect on Paper and have some bookish fun!

THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS (THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS #1) BY CHLOE GONG: AN UNDENIABLY POWERFUL DEBUT – BOOK REVIEW ft. FAVORITE QUOTES

greetings, my friends! how are you? (so, what’s with the “how are yous”? i figured i might make someone smile if i ask how are they doing, because it makes me smile as well when asked by this question.)

from the title of this post, this is a book review of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong, which I really love! i admit, it almost gave me a heart attack when I read the last chapter, still i am so happy to be alive in this generation and read such masterpiece. also, the format of this review is a bit different from my usual, thus i’m hoping i’ll do a great job at it. finally, this is a review of a finished copy, not an ARC, finally!

now, welcome to my blog and let’s have some bookish fun!
