WHY ARE BROADWAY TICKETS SO EXPENSIVE?

I’m trying to convince my parents to take me to see Hamilton, but tickets are so expensive and always sold out and ugh, I’m just so sad. I really wanted to see the show before Lin-Manuel Miranda leaves the cast *internally crying*
(btw, can i just say phillipa soo has the voice of an angel)

Anywhoo, as you can see I got a poop load of new books, but then again what’s new? *sigh* I seriously need to go on a book buying ban. A huge thank you to Big Honcho Media for sending me With Malice, my lovely sis for gifting me Sea Spell, my friend Tanika for giving me a copy of The Amazing Book is Not On Fire and to Book of the Month Club for sending me their June selection of books!

In other news, besides my struggle with self-control, the book club I’m apart of (@theliterarylions) will be reading The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson for July! I’m really excited because I heard that characters from Since You’ve Been Gone have a cameo! Ahhh, I’m hoping for some Frank and Emily scenes ❤ (Fremily?).

Oh and I impulsively started my reread for the Percy Jackson series and it was the best decision I ever made. Percy Jackson was exactly what I needed back in my awkward elementary school days and it’s still exactly what I need even now. The series is my childhood, it was my first love, and it will always have a special place in my heart.

Until next time everyone! Happy reading! More reviews and other posts to come! I have some posts I’ve wanted to do, I just need to get off my lazy butt and actually write them!
