I’ve had this blog for over two years now I think, and I know I’m not the best at regularly updating it. I always try at the start of a new year to get back into the swing of things and this year is no different.

Love, Magic and My Humble Opinion

GracieFM (13)

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

Synopsis: In the months after his father’s suicide, it’s been tough for 16-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again–but he’s still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he’s slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely. 

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron’s crew notices, and they’re not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can’t deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can’t stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute’s revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is. 

Why does happiness have to be so hard?

This mini challenge focuses on a series that many of us love, Harry Potter! With the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script book on the 31st July we thought it would be a fun idea to try and bulk read all seven books before the release. Continue reading
