Any sympathetic criers out there? If so, I’m right there with you. It doesn’t take much to get me to cry, and that includes reading about people crying. Lauren over at Narrative Paradise created a tag talking about all the books that made her shed a tear (internally or externally), and I thought I’d join the party.

Is it just me, or did June go by really fast? I swear one moment the spring semester ended and now we’re already half way through summer break. While May was pretty hectic with finals, June was super chill. Now that it’s summer time, I have some time to catch up on reading and other things….
The classic tale of Greek mythology, but 100% more awkwardly relatable. Hades is the officious, antisocial ruler of the Underworld; Persephone, daughter of Demeter, is an earth goddess of growth and renewal – they’ve been crushing on each other for the past two centuries. But when a festival (and a little liquid courage) present an opportunity to put an end to their olympian will-they-won’t-they, a meddlesome pantheon and several titanic misassumptions threaten to give every god in the sky the wrong impression… and leave their romance dead before it can bloom.

It’s that time of year again! June is coming to an end (how is it already almost July?), and it’s time to freak out about how half the year is already over. Thank you to Amy @ A Fangirl’s Opinion for tagging me!
Reading this year has been a little slow compared to other years, but I’m hoping to pick up the pace soon, so I can reach my goal of finishing all the books I physically own. For now, let’s talk about the books I’ve finished in the first half of 2021!
“Slowly, I take my hands off of the controls. I let my mind rest. My thoughts quiet. There are no further calculations required of me. It is strangely peaceful. I lean into my mic to speak to my squadmates. ‘Finian, Scarlett. It has been a privilege to serve in squad 312 alongside you.'”
