Disney+ has officially been out for a few weeks now and we’ve already got tons upon tons of incredible Disney, Fox, Pixar, National Geographic, and Marvel content! I was lucky enough to have a roommate who so kindly gave me a profile on her Disney+ (them college fees tho, why they gotta interrupt my Disney fandom like dis) and have been casually exploring the monumental catalog since I got it. Wanna know what issues I’ve seen come up? Curious to see if it’s worth it? Wanna know what I’ve been enjoying the most so far? Read on to hear my thoughts and let me know some of yours below in the comments!Continue reading “Disney+: First Impressions!”
I received an e-ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and this has is no way affected my review.
TW// Domestic violence (Descriptions of name calling, physical abuse, stalking, gun violence)
Watch Over Me is my fourth Mila Gray read and the sort of fourth book in the Come Back to Me series. The series isn’t a series in terms of it being the same story over several books, but all the books share similar storylines (most being some sort of military romance) and a lot of characters show up in the other books, especially in this one.
The first book I read of Mila’s and in the series was Stay With Me and it remains my favorite to this day. These books got me interested in military romance (however I haven’t found many YA military romances so if you have a recommendation please let me know!) and I became a Mila Gray fan while reading. I think I first noticed that we were getting a fourth book while casually browsing NetGalley and I was so pumped because even though I didn’t enjoy some parts of the three books I read later, I still really liked Gray’s writing and the romances she writes. I honestly was kind of shocked that I received an e-ARC from Simon Pulse via NetGalley because I don’t see myself as a big blogger and I don’t often get many requests approved from bigger publishers like Simon but it was such a pleasant surprise!Continue reading “Watch Over Me by Mila Gray Review”

In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety
by Krysten Lindsay Hager
(The Cecily Taylor Series, #2)
Publication date: September 3rd 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her. Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?
Since the book deals with anxiety, I thought I would ask the author if she was willing to share some of her favorite forms of self care that she uses when she feels she needs some self care time! Here is what she enjoys!:
When I was asked to write my favorite forms of self-care my first thought was, “Do I want the world to know how I self-soothed with Pepsi, bacon, and the Disney channel after dealing with grief and the anxiety that goes with it?” And then I thought, well, it got me through, didn’t it? I have Andrew and Cecily both deal with anxiety in both of the books and I have another book called, Landry in Like, where I have a slightly younger character learning some tips to help with her anxiety. They use a few different methods, but here are five that help me.Continue reading “In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety by Krysten Lindsay Hager Blog Tour + The Author’s Self Care Tips!”
