Shine Bright Like a Bullied K-pop Star

I don’t recommend Shine if you wish to retain their high opinion of the K-pop world. I certainly felt disenchanted after reading it, but you can rest assured that my appreciation for the music itself remains unscathed.

Because This Is My First Quarantine

Should I Kiss This Book Goodbye?

Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon My rating: 2 of 5 stars Thank you, Simon & Schuster, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. She couldn’t make this boy fall in love with her. She couldn’t break his heart. Because if she did, it was her, not…
