I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hey y’all! I’m trying to think of what’s been going on around here andddd pretty much nothing! I’m done with school and things are easy and kinda delightful. I’ve been reading a ton so yay.

Also I dyed my hair and I’m kind of living for it! So fun and so red yesssss.

I did two book reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

Time Bomb Novel See All the Stars by Kit Frick

Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau, a YA about and from the perspective of six kids stuck in their high school, where bombs are going off.

And See All the Stars, a YA with alternating timelines, about a girl who has now lost all of her friends/boyfriend in a mystery incident.

I liked both of these quite a bit more than I expected! (Not that I actively expected bad things, but they were both ones I thought could go either way.)

I have a tonnnn of arcs (what else is new?) which I am very excited about! Here’s what I’m currently reading! Click the picture to see the Goodreads page!

  

Bookish Boyfriends is an arc I’m aboouuuttt halfway through! And I love it. I don’t feel it has nearly enough hype. It’s SO fun, and very well-written. Just like adorable, solid fun.

The Girl and the Grove I’ve only just started. I’m really excited! The author is a really awesome guy so I’m hoping the book is great!

Leven Thumps #1 is not an arc, it came out many years ago, but I’ve decided to start adding the books my kiddo and I are reading together! This one is really fun so far at about 100 pages in, but maybe written too advanced for a typical MG reader, just imo.

           

I did one other post, Way Hyped Books that I STILL HAVEN’T READ. These aren’t even books from last year? But from like several years now where I have not read the things I’d like to.

I’m not going to do a whole blog post on this one, but I feel like it definitely needs a mention! I read this book of poetry this week, also. In about an hour! Not just because it’s easy to get through, which it is, but I also just really adored it. I will definitely go buy a physical copy and read it more than once.

The Witch Doesn't Burn in this One

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

  1. I love the hair. I had red hair for a long time, but it wasn’t that bright. Have a great week!

  2. Loving the hair! 🙂 I read some poetry this week too, which is pretty unusual for me.
    Hope you have a great week!

      That’s great! I don’t read it nearly often enough, I’m hoping I can get more into it.

  3. Ooh, love the red hair! I was a redhead for years (thanks to coloring it), but not as bright or awesome as yours. Now I am going grey, having developed an allergy to hair dye…how horrible is that?

    But my daughter, who is my stylist, has promised she can foil in some streaks of color. Purple, maybe?

    Your new books look awesome. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Have a great week!

      Oh so cool!! Purple is SO much fun. I had purple for a while, also.

      I hope you have a great week!

  4. Love the hair color! I am looking forward to reading See All the Stars. 🙂 Enjoy your upcoming week and happy reading.

      Thank you 🙂 It’s definitely great! I hope you enjoy it!

    Love the color!! I have always wanted to do funky, bright hair colors (I love the whole unicorn hair trend!) but #1, I’m too old for that, and #2 my job is not down with fun hair colors. So, alas, I will have to keep dreaming (and coloring my hair an ‘acceptable for work’ color because I have to hide the gray somehow!!!). Enjoy your books and have a great week!

      Thank you! Hahah I’m very nearly thirty, so I figure I have a little while left where I can do it and then I gotta stop. And I understand the job thing, too. I just have to wig it.
      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

    You’re in the linkup! That’s wonderful! And I think I’ve already said that I adore that hair color 🙂 so cool. Although last time you said you wanted to rest your hair. Scratch that, eh? XD I envy your guts about the hair color! My hair dye experience hasn’t been all that good, hair looks like crap and it’s really hard to make it dye even (think Asian hair, god knows why mine is like that xD) so I’ve never really tried 🙂 although!!! I did have a bright red streak once 🙂 it was a mess, but it was also fun xD
    Have a great week and I’ll be curious about that post 🙂

    1. Vani says:

      I am! Being done with school definitely helps! Hahha.

      I rested my hair for a bit! I’ve never been very good at that. I love messing with it too much. A hair change is my first instinct whenever I’m sad. Niiiice!! Streaks are so fun! Even if they’re messy.

  7. I love your hair color! I tried a little streak of blue a couple years ago, but it didn’t take. I think I need to bleach my hair for it to stick. Both Time Bomb and And See All the Stars sound good. I am glad you enjoyed them. I’m dying to know more about The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One. I see Lovelace wrote one called The Princess Saves Herself in This One–I’m so on top of both of these! Thanks for bringing them to my attention. I hope you have a great week!

    1. Vani says:

      Thank you so much! Bleaching definitely helps. I bleached my hair before going red for sure.

      The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One is available to Read Now on NetGalley!! I hope you enjoy it!

    Both Time Bomb and See All The Stars look good to me. I liked the last Charbonneau book I read and would definitely try another. And I love time travel or alternate timelines too, so that one caught my eye! Will definitely be checking these out.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

      I haven’t read any other Charbonneau books but I definitely want to look into more of her work, because I enjoyed the writing in Time Bomb a lot!
