November 2020 TBR

I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR. Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 65/85* Books Read *RIP, I finally admitted defeat that 100 books was NOT happening this year due to, well, EVERYTHING 2020 […]

What I’m Loving From Trader Joe’s Lately

Fall is here and that means a plethora of seasonal favorites (both old and new!) have arrived at Trader Joe’s! With COVID, I haven’t eaten out since March and have been exploring a lot more foods I can eat/prepare at home, and I’ve been trying a lot more things, especially from Trader Joe’s. I’ve rounded up my fall favorites in the post below! Apple Blossoms I am absolutely in love with these little, self serve apple pies. I’m more of an apple dessert person than pumpkin (though there are many of pumpkin items on my list today!) and one of […]


National Hispanic Heritage Month Book Recommendations

National Hispanic Heritage Month Book Recommendations

Another wonderful element of the autumn season is that it coincides with Hispanic Heritage month, which runs from September 15th-October 15th. In recent years I’ve seen so much for Latinx/Hispanic representation in YA  and Adult novels and it’s something that I try to stay on top of, aiming for at least 10% of the books I read each year to feature Latinx protagonists/be written by Latinx authors. As a biracial,  Latinx woman (my mother’s side of the family is from El Salvador) I love seeing representation of Latinx culture in the books I’m reading, and wish it had been as […]

I Want to Read More Adult!

I Want to Read More Adult!

It’s no secret that I read a LOT of YA. I did start out as a YA book blog, after all! While I do read adult fiction too, it’s typically all in the romance genre, rather than the contemporary/literary fiction genre. Due to working remotely for the foreseeable future, my team at work has decided to start a virtual book club, and the general tastes of the books being suggested is definitely along the lines of contemporary adult fiction. In reading the synopsis of some of the suggested books, I realize I’ve definitely been out of the loop lately with […]

Month in Review: July 2020

Well I’ll admit, it’s been a minute since I posted a monthly recap. Since March 2020, to be exact. The reason being that literally my days are all pretty much the exact same. Wake up, work, exercise, watch tvs/read, go to bed, Rinse, lather, repeat. I’m not complaining- I know I am SO lucky to have a house I can quarantine in and that my job is remote so I don’t have to go out for work, but it also hasn’t been the most conducive to talking about my life lately because I just feel like everything has been more […]

tbr selections inspired by folklore

tbr selections inspired by folklore

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been streaming folklore nonstop since it’s drop in late July, soaking in the lyrics, the stories, the sounds and unable to turn it off even when you’re not listening to it. I’ll admit I’m surprised that I like it so much considering I didn’t really become a Taylor fan until 1989 (aside from liking the occasional single from her country albums- Love Story is a bop). So I thought, why not channel my obsession with the album’s melancholy tones that perfectly match my quarantine mood with some selections from my TBR? It ended up […]
