I don’t remember if I have already mentioned it here but this year I AM GOING TO YALC FOR MY FIRST TIME!!! WHAAAAAT??? Yes, I know I still don’t believe it! And it’s less than 40 days away so I am a bit all over the place. I have got my plane tickets and my event ticket (all three days, you all!). I already booked an hotel room (GO MONEY!) and I am already mentally planning a few places that I need to visit while in London.

VERSION I READ: e.arc
The book will be release on 17th July. Pre-order it NOW!
(PLOT BY GR) Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project. Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her. When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

you probably haven’t even noticed but the blog went on hiatus for like a month. I apologize for that but it wasn’t planning.
I actually had to change my old computer (it had 7 YEARS!) and I have also been overwhelmed by work and studying + my mental health was totally out of control last month so the blog was actually one of my last thought.
But I wanted to get back so here I am.
An exciting thing will happen next month >>> MY FIRST TIME AT YALC and I am so freaking excited about it. I will update you with the event, my planning and craziness and a bunch of reviews should reach you in the next weeks.
I hope you enjoy it!

TRIGGERS: self harm, eating disorder, depression, suicide.
(PLOT BY GR) In case you’re wondering, this is not a love story. My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year – before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of A-Levels and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people – I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that’s all over now. Now there’s Solitaire. And Michael Holden.
I don’t know what Solitaire are trying to do, and I don’t care about Michael Holden.
I really don’t.

I totally missed out last month wrap up and I was almost forgetting about this month but here I am. So April wasn’t actually a good month for me: mental and physical health have been an issue. Especially because my depression and anxiety increased too much with the “13 reasons why” releasing. (Click here to find out what I think about the show)
In addition I was in a reading slump and in a book buying ban. (YEAH, I KNOW).
But the good thing is that I won 50£ to spend on Wordery during a giveaway and I can’t wait to get the books I ordered. They pretty are amazing! Plus I also bought my YALC tickets for the all EVENT! It is my first time and I am freaking excited about this! (I also watched Beauty and the Beast in the theatre — FINALLY! — and I am so addicted with the soundtrack!)

A normal life in which she sleeps in the same bed for longer than three months and doesn’t have to scrounge for spare change to make sure the electric bill is paid. Emotionally trapped by her unreliable mother, Maggie, and the tiny cape on which she lives, she focuses on her best friend, her upcoming audition for a top music school in New York, and surviving Maggie’s latest boyfriend—who happens to be Grace’s own ex-boyfriend’s father. Her attempts to lay low until she graduates are disrupted when she meets Eva, a girl with her own share of ghosts she’s trying to outrun. Grief-stricken and lonely, Eva pulls Grace into midnight adventures and feelings Grace never planned on. When Eva tells Grace she likes girls, both of their worlds open up. But, united by loss, Eva also shares a connection with Maggie. As Grace’s mother spirals downward, both girls must figure out how to love and how to move on.
