Folklore Tag

This week has been all about folklore, Taylor Swifts brand new, brilliant 8th studio album. I am completely in love with it (and I can't stop talking about it!), so I'm super excited to take part in Cielo's book tag inspired by folklore. I'm so happy to get to combine my favorite books with my new favorite album. This is also my first book tag I've ever done! Thank you to Cielo for tagging me.
If you want more folklore content, I wrote a post for my music blog breaking it down song by song and sharing my favorite lyrics here. I also reacted to the entire album on my YouTube channel. I embedded the video below, but you can also watch it through my link here and subscribe to my channel here.
As you read through the tag, if you want to know more about a book, just click the title to get to my review. This post also features affiliate links to Bookshop so you can easily order a copy of your next favorite book. Using this link means I might get a small commission which…

Felix Ever After YA Book Review

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender
TW: Transphobia
Get a Copy From My BookShop*
Overview: Felix has never been quite sure where he fits in.

Characters: 5 Felix is impossible to not love. He's sarcastic and hilarious in some mome…

Books I'm Looking Forward To: August

Happy almost August! Can you believe that summer is almost over? It feels like it never even started. One of the fun parts of a new month is a whole host of new books to get excited about. August does not disappoint, especially if you're a romance fan. As I wrote this post, I kept thinking, "These covers are all so gorgeous", and while 2020 is pulling out all the stops in the cover department, I realized that I tend to initially look into a book because the cover catches my eye. Do you judge books by their covers (at least initially) too? Let me know in the comments. Anyway, I hope you're just as excited for these August reads as I am!
