    1. I’d really like to get to Milk& Honey soon…possibly because her latest poetry book calls to me more but I’d like to have read this one first lol. Dread Nation may just be in my December TBR, I keep hearing such AMAZING wonderful things that I’m pretty hyped up. Curious on Girl Made of Stars, will swing by for your review 🙂 Happy reading in December <3!

      1. I hope you’re able to! It honestly was incredible. Her views on life, and feminism, and sexuality, and being a woman of color – all amazing. And she has such a way of penning down her emotions. I was totally captivated. I hope you get the chance to read Dread Nation soon! It was kind of life-changing for me, like one of those books that just impacted me so heavily that, while it didn’t give me any new views necessarily, it definitely lit a fire under some of my current views on things. Same goes for Girl Made of Stars – such an important read.
        Happy reading, lovely! ?

    1. Wow, I am very shocked about the DNF for “Feel Me Fall”. I reviewed it myself and I actually enjoyed it a lot. It is one of those books though that I feel you have to get farther into to actually enjoy.The beginning of the book initially made me a little hesitant to continue, but once I got further in is when I started to enjoy what was happening in the story. Also if you had gotten to the ending you would have been screaming for a sequel to know what happens! It just shows how we each have very unique experiences with books.

      1. Right?! I mean, I was a little bummed that my reading numbers were a little lower than my normal in November, but then I realized how many of them were 5-star reads, and I couldn’t be mad!

    1. Oh you read The Princess Saves Herself in This One. I want to read it because Amanda, but I’m not one for poetry. 🙂
