F – Feature your latest book obsession

I read When the Moon Was Ours at the beginning of the month for the Dragons & Tea Book Club on Goodreads. The hype for this book is well deserved and it was such a lush, gorgeous read. I can’t wait to read more by Anna-Marie McLemore.

I – Indicate which book/s you are looking forward to reading this weekend

I have a lot planned but mainly these two which are ARCs that I need to get out of the way.

F – Favorite quote of the week/day

When the Moon Was Ours contains several beautiful quotes so I have to at least share one quote. I decided to go with the author’s dedication since it would be less spoiler-y but its also a poignant dedication that I just love seeing.

“To the boys who get called girls,
the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names,
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish for you every light in the sky”

F – Five things I’m happy or grateful for this week

  1. Game of Thrones Season 8 – the final season has begun and I really enjoyed the season premiere for the most part. I can’t wait to see what is to come and how it’s all going to end.
  2. Homecoming: A Film by Beyonce – This is the rock-documentary of Beyonce’s Coachella performance and WOW. It really shows how much work ethic that Beyonce has and it is such a powerful performance.
  3. Weyes Blood’s new album Titanic Rising – I’ve been listening to this one a lot lately and I saw someone desccribe this as Joni Mitchell meets ABBA and I think that fits so perfectly.
  4. My parents – I’ve been having a rough-ish week but I had my parents for support and I always appreciate them so much.
  5. I don’t know what else to say but I am grateful for anyone who reads this lol.

Anyways that’s been my past couple of weeks thus far. Let me know how y’all are doing and what reading plans you have for the weekend.

  1. When the Moon Was Ours ❤️ Anna-Marie McLemore’s writing is so beautiful!

    My feeling towards GoT are more nervous, than grateful at the moment – but the first two episodes were really lovely. Which is not a word I thought I’d ever use to describe GoT, but here we are.

    • I’m so gald I finally read it. Her writing is gorgeous and lyrical.

      I am so much more nervous now especially for episode 3. They were really great, I especially liked the second episode. But I am absolutely dreading this coming Sunday.
