I read so many things this month????? And so many of them got at least four stars, this has been a fantastic time to be alive, and Netgalley and I are trying our relationship again, sooooooo APRIL I LOVED YOU.
Also I’ve been redesigning my blog (nurturing my art skills which I’ve discovered are actually very dead) so everything is a total mess right now (describing my entire personality)
But WordPress and I are friends, we’re going to get through this!!!
Or one of us will.
Foxhole Court trilogy by Nora Sakavic // This is my new all-time favorite series and I actually reread it twice this month oh goddddd. Some important things to note. The MC, Neil Josten, my angel, is demisexual. There are DARK themes, friendships, and the most perfect slow burn gay romance in this world. If I love you it’s very likely I’ve yelled at you to read this and i’m sorrryyyyy. But seriously read it.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz (reread) // I just identify with Ari and Dante so much??? They are so cute and it only takes me a few hours to read. So worth it. So beautiful.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller // Patrochilles is my OTP & my life. The prose itself in this book was so gorgeously done. PERFECT ILIAD AESTHETIC.
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli // Sooooosooooo cute.
A List of Cages by Robin Roe // For when you want that deep platonic love.
Fence by C.S Pacat // A webcomic with art and angst and fencing and students in ties and hate-to-love trope.
Autoboygraphy by Christina Lauren // GLORIOUS TRASH
Captive Prince Trilogy by C.S Pacat // WOWOWOWOW I read this in one weekend and was so pleased. THE PREMISE. LAURENT. DAMEN. Very dark and difficult to read but also very sweet in the end.
How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C Lillis // When Abel is everything decent in this world.
Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater (technically happened in March but I forgot to talk about it oooppppssss) // I’ve painted “Save Adam Parrish” on my local water tower because he’s perfect in every way.

Love, Simon (2018) // This was so cute????? It was more Simon-centric than Simon+Blue-centric which I was totally okay with because Simon is an adorable hero.
Loving Vincent (2017) // This was such a GORGEOUS ARTISTIC ode to my soulmate, Vincent van Gogh, oh my goshhhhh. And DOUGLAS BOOTH IS THERE. & This is the world’s first fully painted film ever to be done which is just SO FANTASTIC. It’s about the mystery surrounding Vincent’s death in France and the aesthetic of this film is so authentic, I just fell in total passionate love. Also it goes into the PRECIOUS relationship between Vincent and his brother Theo which you know I’m obsessed with.
All Malec Moments In Chronological Order (YouTube) // To make me a more complete person.
1/2 of Troy: Fall of a City (netflix) // PATROCHILLES WINS AGAIN. Also Hector is just the sweetest little summer child.
