As a young girl, I used to pray in my bed every night that God would miraculously give me blonde hair, blue eyes, and creamy white skin. After that didn’t work, I had another plan: hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice….
I didn’t realize how pretty the cover to these books are. You can feel the details in the lettering and swirly designs. It’s so pretty! #bookstagram
It’s been a few days since my last reading update. Oops.
The book I’m currently reading isn’t holding my attention very much. I’m debating whether or not to start another book in the meantime. But, this book is a library book and I need to get it done!
I’m 150 pages into Origin and nothing exciting has happened. I think I missed something. I don’t even know what it’s about…or what it’s going to be about climax/intense/striking wise. I don’t care much for Pia or the boy or the scientists. They’re all meh.
After this book I’m definitely going to be starting Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi. It’s the last book in the trilogy and I’m just dying to read it. I think I just might start it tomorrow and see how far I can get.

What are the genres or types of books that you read least often or not at all?
I feel like I don’t read enough YA contemporary. That’s why I’ve spent most of this year searching and reading as much YA contemporary as I can. I’ve enjoyed most of the ones I’ve read.
Why don’t I read it?
Before, reading YA contemporary made me angry. I’ve lead such a boring life. The lives I’ve read in books are always so much more intriguing or thought provoking, it’d just make me angry. I felt like I’ve missed out on life or I haven’t done the right things at the right time. I still feel this way most of the time when I read YA contemporary. I’m trying to get over it though.
Another genre I hardly read is YA Sci-fi. I just haven’t really found any books that are sci-fi enough for me to pick up.
Why don’t I read it?
Personally, they’re hard to come by. The world-building is either too weird or far-fetched (another thing I have to get over) or the romance is the main focus. I don’t need every single book I read to concentrate on romance.
I would love to read more books from both these genres. I’m just so picky and I definitely have to be in the “mood” for them. Sometimes I want swoony romance. Sometimes I can’t stomach it. I need kick-ass characters. Realistic characters. Characters that are scared, worried, change. I don’t know!
