Because You Love to Hate Me edited by Ameriie: This is possibly one of my MOST anticipated books of this year! This is an anthology of short stories from bestselling authors who are also paired with a booktuber writing about the villains featured in fairytales! I loooooove a good anti-hero/villain story and plus there are some of my favourite authors here soooooo SQUEAL. (Authors include: Renee Ahdieh, Marissa Meyer, Adam Silvera, Victoria Schwab… THIS IS HEAVEN)

Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine: Okay so I’m guilty of not having read the second book in the series yet despite having an ARC of it since last year?? I KNOW. One of my absolute worst book blogger confessions ever omg. But I am looking forward to this one!!

Paintbrush by Hannah Bucchin: LOOK AT THAT COVER I don’t even need to know what it’s about *heart eyes*

The Art of Starving by Sam J. Miller: This sounds so heartbreakingggg! Oh my gosh. It’s about a bullied gay boy who has an eating disorder and its blurb also mentions More Happy Than Not?! MINE.

The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey (The Girl at Midnight #3): I haven’t read this series yet but I know people who love it, so I definitely want to try it out! I hope it’s a good read!

The Dragons of Nova by Elise Kova (Loom Saga #2): I’ve heard so much yet so little about Elise Kova! There seems to be a lot of people who’ve read her other fantasy series, but they claim she’s underrated? *shrug* Either way the book sounds good!

Hello, Sunshine by Leila Howland: Who, me?? WHY THANKS YOU. Also fluff and sunshine!! #yes

This is How it Happened by Paula Stokes: Much vagueness?? WHAT HAPPENED??! Unfortunately the main character doesn’t know either because she just woke up from a coma and–

July 18th

The Color Project by Sierra Abrams: Family, friendship and romance, all in one book? Also I’ve read such amazing recs of it so far and that cover is so gorgeoussss.

The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana: Ahem, this said, and I quote, “romantic fantasy tale steeped in Indian folklore, perfect for fans of The Star-Touched Queen and The Wrath and the Dawn” OH HI two of my favourite books??! Please don’t be a marketing ploy please please. GIMME.

The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell: Magic! (no duh) In modern day New York! Stealing books! I mean if I were a criminal I’d relate. MINE!

Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn: Another friend-to-lover trope! This one sounds like such fun.

The Ends of the World by Maggie Hall: Hehehehe this is another tragic case of me-falling-out-of-interest-because-of-waiting? I loved the first book but when the second released I didn’t care very much haha but now that the third is releasing I might try to read the whole series!

What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy: I don’t usually read sci-fi? But oh well, it sounds pretty good!

July 25th

Lucky in Love by Kasie West: Aghhh so many anticipated releases on July 25th for me!! Kasie West is SUCH an amazing contemporary author, her books are always so adorable. NEED THIS BOOK!!

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody: Where Lucky in Love is super cute, this one seems more of a darker book and I can’t wait!! It has a traveling carnival and I neeeeeeed to read this!!

The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz: Ahhh this sounds so good! We have a POC MC and bisexual rep I think, as well as an f/f romance though I’m not sure how much it plays a part. It sounds very artsy!

Everything All at Once by Katrina Leno: The main character has anxiety! It sounds like such a wonderful coming of age story.

Changes in Latitude by Jen Malone: A road trip romance that takes place at sea I think??? #muchsense

Vanguard by Ann Aguirre (Razorland #4): I haven’t read this series but I’ve heard of it before! That counts for something right??

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas: This is pitched as being for fans of Pretty Little Liars and it’s a psychological thriller! I used to be a fan of PLL, not so much anymore and I don’t read many thrillers at all but it sounds interesting!

First We Were IV by Alexandra Sirowy: Revenge! Death! Rebellion! Sounds perfect. 😛 (I swear I’m normal. Mostly.)

Buried Heart by Kate Elliott: I swear, these one year waits between books are horrible. I don’t remember much of what happened in the first two books? But I mean, I liked them well enough, the first better than the second but I hope this is a good finale!!

What books are you looking forward to this month?! I am SO looking forward to so many of these!! Do you think you’ll be broke this month or will you still have some money left?? How was your month, reading/life wise? Let us talk and screech over time moving too fast but also incredibly slowly! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway if you haven’t already!

I’m going broke again! // 2017 June Book Releases

HI! May is already coming to an end, can you believe it?? Though I’ve felt like it was June already every since the weekend because I had just set up my June bullet journal pages* but nonetheless, now June is actually here, seeing how it’s the second last day of May. Which of course means… NEW BOOKS**!! I am SO excited for all of these, but there a few in particular that I can’t wait for omg. ❤ ❤

*I have a pink theme this month!! And yes, I’m just as obsessed with my bullet journal as before. It’s SO MUCH FUN. ❤ I’m in loveeeeee.

**I’m linking up with this week’s Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish WHICH I HAVEN’T DONE IN FOREVER omg. I’m also doing my own monthly release post at the same time? So there will be more than 10 HAHA I am a rebel. Also be proud of me I managed to write this post in advance!! 🎉

June 6th: Book release heaven / Bank account hell

Once and For All by Sarah Dessen: Oh HI it’s Sarah Dessen aka one of my favourite contemporary authors ever!! I swear, if I had the time I’d reread and read all her books honestly. But for now I’ll settle for reading this one when it releases!

What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard: AHHHH I want this book so much!! It’s about this girl who’s at a treatment center for anorexia, which is something that’s unfortunately so common nowadays and my heart breaks </3 It sounds like a hopeful novel though? I think? Possibly?

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: It has bookshops!! And young love and awwww so perfect for the summer. Also I LOVE BLUE. ❤

Dramatically Ever After by Isabel Bandeira: I remember the first book, Bookishly Ever After was released last year and it sounded so good but then I read mixed reviews and soon it kind of disappeared from my mind?? I had no idea there was a sequel until now hahahaha #oops

Internet Famous by Danika Stone: This title definitely refers to meeeeee! *nods* (HAHAHA) I saw blog in the synopsis and I immediately was like YES PLEASE. Apart from that it sounds so adorable!! So yessssss.

The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone: The cover has ice cream and desserts and popsicles and so obviously this also has my name on it??? This also has stuff to do with internet fame WOW I SENSE A THEME.

Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser: Oooooh a magical fantasy with river stuff and cool things!! WOO. #howIaddthingstomyTBR No, but really, it does sound SO AMAZING. ❤

Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau: Okay, so the cover is not very impressive? But. It sounds super good actually and I really can’t wait to read this sometime!!

Here Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin Terrill: Ooooooh fast paced, thrilling and about a con artist! INTERESTED.

The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson: Zero clue what this is about but castles and empires!! YAY. (Though not a fan of that cover, ew. What happened to all my pretty covers???)

Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger: This book is told through tweets, DMs and police transcripts and sounds like the best thing ever omg.

Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee: It sounds super adorable!! And I also heard it has ace rep SO YES PLEASE. (Okay but what is this cover??? Blech. No offence.)

June 13th: OUR DARK DUET ❤

AAHHHHH the first two are basically the ones I want most???! ❤ ❤

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab: IT’S ALMOST HEREEEEE. ❤ ❤ I adored This Savage Song, it was so dark and gritty and fabulous and now I can’t wait for the sequel!! I also just checked on GR and there’s no mention of a third book on Goodreads either?? AHhhhhhh the anticipation is killing me.

Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali: This book is about a MUSLIM GIRL and it’s also #ownvoices!! *grabby hands* I don’t think I’ve ever read a YA book with a Muslim protag. If there is one book I have no doubt will be amazing on this list, I have a really really good feeling it’s this one. I NEED!!

Obsidian and Stars by Julie Esbaugh (Ivory and Bone #2): I haven’t read the first book but I have been meaning to! I believe it was pitched as Pride & Prejudice meets something else (I forget) but YESSS. On the TBR!

Thief’s Cunning by Sarah Ahiers (Assassin’s Heart #2): I haven’t read the first book for this either?? #oops BUT it has thieves (and the first one says assassin) so obviously this series was made for me.

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios: THAT COVER. It’s so odd but so cool and eye-catching?? And the premise sounds so good as welllllllll.

Be True to Me by Adele Griffin: Tbh I have no clue what this is about but I like the cover’s colour!! I think I have a shirt that’s similar to this colour actually. #addingbookstomytbrbelike

June 27th: *grabby hands*

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee: AHHHH you don’t understand HOW MUCH I want & need this book, honestly. It’s diverse (I’m pretty sure, anyway), sassy and it sounds like my kind of book *cries* Why is it only being released at the end of the month?? One of my top anticipated books this year!

Now I Rise by Kiersten White (The Conqueror’s Saga #2): I haven’t read the first book but I know many people have and apparently it’s really good? Definitely planning on picking up the series sometime, though probably not soon.

Midnight Jewel by Richelle Mead (The Glittering Court #2): Not gonna lie, wasn’t impressed with the first book whatsoever and I do understand this is a companion novel from another character’s perspective? But like… really not interested, tbh. Did want to include it for anyone who is following the series though!

If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak: “A sparkling debut about love, family, and the mysteries of the universe.” AWW you have me at familyyyy this sounds so lovely already. ❤ #familiesftw2k17

The Impossible Vastness Of Us by Samantha Young: This sounds so adorable and look at that cute coverrrr!!

Basically June is making it really easy for us by having all the best books be released on 3 days?? And also is making it really hard for me to resist wanting to buy these books??? (As per usual.) I think I’ll be able to restrain myself more this month compared to May though, which is something I guess haha. Which of these books do you want to read?? How broke do you think you’ll be this month? 😛 Let me know in the comments!!

Thank god it’s finally May! // 2017 May Book Releases

Guess who’s going broke once again this month??

(Hint: it’s meeeeeeee.)

It’s that time of year again, and I’m actually super excited for the end of the month for once, because my classes have FINALLY ENDED. *cue cheers* 4-month summer, yessssss! I am taking summer courses though (ughhh) so that will still take up my time, but STILL. SUMMER.

Anyway, the end of a month bringing the start of a new one, and with that brings NEW BOOKS. *squeals* and also *cries because this human read only 5 books this month and can’t keep up* SO MANY BOOKS I can’t wait to read omg. Let’s just get right into the books so I don’t go onto a 500-word intro.

May 9

Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy: I really liked Dumplin’ when I read it last year, so I’m interested in seeing how this one turns out!

It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiura: I’ve read some really great reviews on this one and it’s a diverse read featuring a gay Japanese-American protag. It may also be #ownvoices, but I’m not sure. But it sounds amazing!

It Started With Goodbye by Christina June: Another cute contemporary! (I’m pretty sure, anyway.)

Dear Reader by Mary O’Connell: Gilmore Girls with magical realism?? YES PLEASE.

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord: I finished her other novel, When We Collided, a while back and liked it well enough so I’m curious to see how this book is!!

Seeker by Veronica Rossi (Riders #2): I’ve had the first book on my TBR for a while but never got around to it! I hope whoever is following this series likes this one though.

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #2): I’ve waited enouuuuuuugh!! I really can’t wait for this omgggg why is it still so far away?

The Gauntlet by Megan Shepherd (The Cage #3): I liked the look of the series but haven’t gotten around to it.

In a Perfect World by Trish Doller: I’d have all the time in the world to read books and also have a ton of money to buy said books. But it’s not a perfect world and so now I’m sad?? But I digress. This sounds interesting!

Basically a whole bunch of contemporary! // 2017 April Book Releases

It’s no longer April Fool’s, but funny-not-funny story for yesterday: I woke up to my sister screaming and acting like there was a spider on my bed. AGH. #sisterproblems

Hello everyone and happy second day of April! I hope your first couple of days of April have been off to a good start! I haven’t posted for the past few days though, sorry about that! I’ve been so busy and just haven’t gotten a chance to blog hop, read, or write a post at all. WHY DOES TIME HATE ME. A struggle that goes on forever. I know I don’t really have to apologize, but nonetheless.

It so does not feel like April though?? I will never understand this whole time and month thing, honestly. It feels so short. But, it is (apparently) April, which means it’s time for new books being released!! I had not had much time at all to read last month, like at all (I finished 3 books?? Which is not terrible but not at all my usual number… I hardly read any books.) BUT. I am of course an addict for new books and I am loving the titles being released this month!

April 1st

All the Forever Things by Jolene Perry: I don’t know about this one, actually?? It sounds and looks super cute but I’ve briefly skimmed some reviews and it doesn’t seem to be something I think I’d enjoy. But, nonetheless, willing to keep an open mind!

The Secret Science of Magic by Melissa Keil: The main character in this one is a genius! And has social anxiety! (? correct me if I’m wrong, someone!) And that’s all I know about it! But it sounds amazing and I’ve seen people rave about it, so count me in.

April 4th

Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor: Seemingly a cute contemporary! It sounds like a really fun read.

The Last Thing You Said by Sara Biren: Another contemporary! April is really bringing on the cute contemporary reads–not that I mind! Contemporary is one of my favourite genres, next to fantasy. Bring on the cute reads!

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett: Ummmmm. No idea what it’s about. Oh well. It’s a contemporary? Sorry, I am no help with this description thing…

Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr: Another contemporary! I have no idea what it’s about (I AM A GOLDFISH, OKAY.) but it looks cute!

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer: I believe this is a contemporary?? THE COVER IS SO PRETTY. I’m in love.

But Then I Came Back by Estelle Laure: Coma patients! Friendship (??) and another contemporary! This one sounds pretty interesting, actually.

Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean: Uhhh… Do I know what this book is about??? Nope. But the cover is pretty??

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray: A sci-fi novel! I liked the author’s previous works well enough, so I’m interested in seeing how this one turns out.

Shadowcaster by Cinda Williams Chima (Shattered Realms #2): I haven’t read any of this series or any of the author’s books, but I really want to!! I’ve heard her fantasy books are really amazing, and I can’t wait.

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern (Flawed #2): This is the sequel to the first book, that released last year (Flawed) and I haven’t read that one either, but for those who have, I hope you enjoy this one!

April 6th

The State of Grace by Rachael Lucas: I believe this book deals with a character with autism?? I can’t comment on the rep or the content at all, obviously, but I heard it was good and I’m hoping that’s true?

April 11th

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli: IT’S ALMOST HERE!!! Becky Albertallu aka creator of my best friend Simon is releasing a NEW BOOK. *flails* *dies*

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer: Retelling galore!! You guys probably know how much I love retellings *cough* Beauty and the Beast phase *cough* so I’m super excited for this one.

Blacksouls by Nicole Castroman: PIRATES AND PIRATING! YAY. I really enjoyed the first book, Blackhearts, and I need this one asap?? Plz and thanks.

Alex and Eliza: A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz: I’ve recently gotten into Hamilton??? SO PERFECT TIMING because I’m obsessed with it and I will devour this book because: Hamilton and Eliza’s story. Yayyy! (Don’t disappoint me pleaseeeeee.)

Side note: The lack of coordination color-wise of these covers side to side makes me frustrated. WHY CAN’T THEY FOLLOW A THEME. I suppose they all have some black?? Except Spindle Fire is like gray?? I CAN’T.

Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis (Given Duet #1): Mindy McGinnis has wowed me before with previous works SO I WANT THIS NOW thanks.

Fireworks by Katie Cotugno: I believe I may have read one other book from this author?? But like I can’t remember if it was by this author or not? But I honestly don’t know about this one… it just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. *shrug*

Literally by Lucy Keating: No idea what this one is about! I swear, I go on Goodreads. I just have a tiny little issue of forgetting the synopsis 2 seconds after I read it and being too lazy to reopen and read it again. Oops.

Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey: Awww what a cute pastel-blue cover with fancy-ish writing! I like it. Do I know what the story is about? Ummmm deception? And duels, duh.

April 18th

Meg & Linus by Hanna Nowinski: I love this cover design!! I WANT THIS NOW. It also seems super cute, so. Even death-and-more-death people need their contemporaries!

The Adjustment by Suzanne Young: I haven’t read this series, but, it’s ending so I might just end up reading the whole series one day! Until then, I hope the people who are reading this series enjoy this. 🙂

April 25th

North of Happy by Adi Alsaid: I actually wasn’t the biggest fan of the other book I read from this author, I believe it was Never Always Sometimes? Something like that. BUT. I am willing to give this author another chance!

The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares: I actually read the synopsis again for this one! Because I needed to find the cover. And it sounds like a great book about relationships, family, and self-discovery, so yay!


In a nutshell: April is full of contemporary releases! If you’re a fan of contemporary, like me, I’m sure that news makes you happy. If not, well, there are still plenty of other past releases this year to keep you company! (Seriously, there are SO MANY BOOKS being released my goal of reading them all is rapidly growing more and more impossible… *cries*)

Which of these are you looking forward to?? Do you enjoy contemporaries? Are you being overwhelmed with the copious amounts of books being released?? Let me know in the comments!

  • The Sky Between You and Me by Catherine Alene: I don’t know what this is about (I did read the synopsis on Goodreads but I don’t remember it anymore??) but I’m cover-judging and it looks cute aha.
  • A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom: I really enjoyed his other novel, Not If I See You First, so I can’t wait to see what he did with this one. (And that cover though!)

I’m going to be honest here, I don’t have a clue what any of these are like (except for the first one, duh) but they’re being released this month and seem interesting!

February 14th

  • The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine (Ravenspire #2): I should probably start the first book…
  • The Valiant by Lesley Livingston: Ooh female gladiators and lots of action, is what this sounds like! Me want.
  • Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey: This book seems so heart-wrenching!
  • #famous by Jilly Gagnon: Awww this seems so adorable. Check out the synopsis on Goodreads haha. 😉
  • American Street by Ibi Zoboi: This book seems to deal with multiple topics and it has good reviews, so fingers crossed it’s as good as it sounds. 🙂

February 21st

  • A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic #3) CAN WE JUSTTTTTT. Omg. I’m actually dying. I NEED THIS BOOK. If you haven’t picked up this series, you absolutely must ahhhhh. ❤
  • The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins (Transference #1): Dragons!
  • Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas:  Pretty cover haha. But it’s also a fantasy stand-alone (which is rare, when you think about it) and I’m intrigued by the storyline!

February 28th

  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: So many people are looking forward to this one, and I’m certainly not an exception! It seems like such an important and great read. I hope it doesn’t disappoint!
  • The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig (The Girl From Everywhere #2): Another sequel to a series I’ve been meaning to start but haven’t! According to Goodreads there doesn’t seem to be another book after this so I think it would be perfect to start this series haha. (And not have to die for the next book, ahem.)
  • Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot: This book deals with a girl who has an eating disorder (ARFID) and omg it sounds so sad but also hopeful and I really do want to read it.
  • 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac: The main character in this book has anxiety, and it seems like a very good read!
  • Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller (Daughter of the Pirate King #1): PIRATES.

So many amazing reads, as usual! Well, I’m assuming they’re amazing. I could be wrong. But I hope I’m not haha. Which of these are you looking forward to? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments! ❤

Until the Next Meal, Analee

Welcome, 2017! (A bit belated but…) // An apology and 2017 January Book Releases!

Hi everyone! It’s been SO LONGGGGG agh. I’m questioning my ability to type proper sentences I’ve been away from this blog for so long. I’m wondering whether I’m even a book blogger, that’s how long I’ve been away. *sob* I missed youuuuuu and it’s okay, I’m not asking for “I missed you too” I just wanted to state that fact. I love you guys and agh 7 MONTHS. All gone. Since my last post. Can you even believe it?? Because I’m still in shock.

Ahem.

But I digress. Where do I even begin at the horrors of these past few months? A little recap:

  • I stopped blogging for more than 7 months, no joke. *cue tears* *hides from mob of angry people*
  • I stopped blogging for more than 7 months.
  • I died and it’s my ghost speaking to you all now. 
  • Don’t worry I’m still alive.
  • I ran out of chocolate.
  • (It’s okay I got more)
  • I ran out of shelf space.
  • But then I got a new shelf. Wait, that’s not a bad thing.
  • Trump became president and my soul is still crying.
  • I stopped blogging for more than 7 months.
  • No. blogging. for. seven. months. Who even am I?
  • I became an adult and started university which is my pathetic excuse for no blogging
  • I stopped blogging for seven months.
  • And I’ll stop here.
  • Was this too much?

Okay I should stop before I drive you insane?? Okay.

But guys, it’s 2017!! And no, I did not just realize this. BUT. I was stating the fact. Though to be honest I’m still kind of shocked. 30 days was not enough for me to adjust to the idea! But it’s okay. I have another 11 months before I go through the whole cycle over again. How has 2017 been treating you so far?? Hopefully well and you’re all good and happy and perhaps stressed because #life. Wait, the last one’s just me. 😉 But really, how’s 2017?

I will definitely try to come up with a more consistent blogging schedule though, this whole posting and then disappearing for 7 months really isn’t doing me any favors and is actually making me quite sad and pressured afterwards. SO. New year, new me! Right? Right. Okay then.

Something that hasn’t changed, though! MY LOVE FOR BOOKS. I promise you, that has not changed and will never change, no matter what my schedule is. Pinky promise and all that jazz! This month has went by so fast, and I swear, the amount of books being released each month kind of drives me insane? Because I cannot keep up, for the life of me. So I’ve decided to make a list of the books that was released this month! I’ve done this before in the past, and I usually do it at the beginning of a month, but, well..

So let’s do this!

Books I especially look forward to:

  • History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera: ADAM. SILVERA. That’s all I need to know. GIVE ME plz.
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Caraval #1): Tbh I’m not sure what this one’s about? But it seems interesting!
  • By Your Side by Kasie West: Kasie West’s books are so adorable!! I want thissssss.
  • RoseBlood by A.G. Howard: Phantom of the Opera retelling? Sign me up!
  • Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth (Carve the Mark #1): I’ve read mixed reviews, but I’m still hoping it’s good? I enjoyed Divergent well enough, hopefully this one’s just as good or better?
  • Windwitch by Susan Dennard (Truthwitch #2): I really enjoyed Truthwitch, and I’ve heard good things about this one so super excited!
  • Frostblood by Elly Blake (Frostblood Saga #1): Ice and blood and fantasy and all the good things. Yum.
  • The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden: Positive reviews! Fingers crossed.
  • The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles: Ummm… the cover is kind of super pretty soooo.
  • All of the other books, tbh. I was just too lazy to write a reason for why I want them? Pretty much because most of these all have #prettycovers and I’m just slightly obsessed with books in general? Just slightly.

Omg, so many good books. I hope. They look good so I’m just judging from the covers, once again. Nothing new, right? I hope you guys have had a great year, hope you’re enjoying this brand new year, and I’m looking forward to talking to you all once again! (AFTER 7 MONTHS *sobs again*) What books are you looking forward to? Have you read any of these books? If you have, tell me if you liked/disliked because right now I haven’t read a single one of these?? And I need your opinions. (I know, I know. I’ll get on it.. sometime.)

Hugs! ❤
