Tbh, this should actually say “just DNFed.” Yes, you read that correctly: I DNFed Evelyn Hugo. I’m still sad about it. The main reason I felt like I should DNF it were that I had a couple of major things spoiled for me by the book community including the main romance and what happens with Monique’s father, and also the sex stuff really bothered me and I was worried it would end up being too triggering. I did like the writing even though it wasn’t as amazing as in DAISY JONES, so it’s possible I’ll come back to it, but I think I might give other Taylor Jenkins Reid books a try first. But I am very salty that the book community spoiled the biggest part of the book. I guess that’s what I get for reading reviews but it’s still disappointing.

I’ve been psyched for this book for what feels like forever, but definitely from since before that AMAZING cover was revealed. This is honestly the most on-brand book for me and I’m hoping it continues being enjoyable. It’s about Esme Pearl, a teenager who has a babysitting “club” with her best friend Janis until gorgeous Cassandra Heaven moves to town, and weird things start happening around Esme. There has already been a creepy child incident and lots of girl power and awesome fashion (though honestly I could do without so many fashion descriptions, but it’s not bad), so I have high hopes that this will continue to be awesome. Also, it’s surprisingly and unexpectedly funny? I was expecting quirky but not to actually LOL, so that’s a nice surprise.

Okay so maybe I’ll reread SEA WITCH next so I can read SEA WITCH RISING??? But also I really want to read NINTH HOUSE for my birthday this weekend. Reading my eARC of it will be my ultimate birthday gift to myself. I’m a little worried this one will be triggering for me as well but I am going to try to soldier on through because I love Leigh Bardugo she is my queen and I need to read this book that is sure to be a dark masterpiece.

    Lots of great books here! I’m sorry you DNFed Evelyn but I have heard mixed reviews about it so I’m not all that surprised. Looking forward to your thoughts on your reads!

    Oh no I’m so sorry you DNFed Evelyn Hugo, it’s so bothering that you got spoiled for it all 🙁
    I’m so happy you’re enjoying your current read though, I love that cover! And I can’t wait to hear what you think of Ninth House, I’ve been curious about that one, but also scared that it might be too triggering.

      Yeah, that’s my one fear about night house too. I hope we both end up liking it though!
