Happy Sunday, bibliophiles!

Whew…it hasn’t quite been a tiring week, but it’s been a week of strange transitions, what with going back to online school, and subsequently finding out that we’ll be doing online learning for the entire rest of the school year. (Oh, and the general disappointment in the fact that The New Mutants was supposed to come out on Friday, but it’s been delayed until who-knows-when…sigh…). I’m starting to accept that this is starting to become the new normal for now, but I think we should all keep in mind that this is not forever. As with all things, COVID-19 will eventually pass. In the words of Phoebe Bridgers, “It’ll all work out/Eventually.” 💗

Oh, and I started Camp NaNoWriMo again on the 1st! I’m on the same WIP as before, but I’m trying to get it to about 110,000 words. I’m at around 87,000 at the moment. Wish me luck!

Book Review Tuesday (9/20/16)- Ghosts

I promised a few months prior that I would review this book. (Back then, I didn’t know that it would come out on Sept. 12. It was like, June or something). So, here’s your review! This is probably my favorite graphic novel of Raina Telgemeier’s. ❤️👻

(HALLELUJAH! I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO ADJUST THE SIZE! Madeline, you idiot…*face palms*)

Ghosts

Cat never wanted to move to Bahia de la Luna. Her family wouldn’t have done it either, if not for Cat’s little sister, who has cystic fibrosis. But when they move, Cat and Maya discover a shocking secret- this town is full of ghosts. Lots and LOTS of ghosts. Though Maya is eager to see them, Cat’s terrified for herself-and Maya. Can she overcome her fear while keeping her sister safe?

As I said, this is a wonderful book. Highly recommended for, well, everyone! Bye for now!
