Hello friends! Long time, no post! Before I start discussing this lovely book, I just want to apologize for my sudden absence. I think it started once I got the flu (yuck), and then school and theater all came crashing down on me. I’d like to say that I’m back, but I probably will only be posting sporadically for the next several months. It breaks my heart because I love blogging so much, but senior year is an absolute beast.
Anyways, today I’m here to celebrate Down and Across, a heartwarming and hilarious novel about finding your passion in life!
Hi friends, today I’m sharing my thoughts on a very special book that’s releasing today! I’m sure you’ve all been anticipating Reign of the Fallen as much as me, this monster-filled, stabby fantasy absolutely captured my heart with its lovable characters and unique storytelling! I’m thrilled to be participating on this tour hosted by the one and only Brittany’s Book Rambles. And if you read till the end, there might just be a special surprise I threw in! *winky face*

Hello bookworms! Today I’m back with another look at my (monstrous) TBR!

Title: American Panda
Author: Gloria Chao
Genre: YA, contemporary
Release Date: February 6th, 2018
Format: print ARC
Synopsis: An incisive, laugh-out-loud contemporary debut about a Taiwanese-American teen whose parents want her to be a doctor and marry a Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer despite her squeamishness with germs and crush on a Japanese classmate.
At seventeen, Mei should be in high school, but skipping fourth grade was part of her parents’ master plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on track to fulfill the rest of this predetermined future: become a doctor, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a litter of babies.
With everything her parents have sacrificed to make her cushy life a reality, Mei can’t bring herself to tell them the truth–that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a crush on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who is decidedly not Taiwanese.

It took me a few tries to write this post. I even considered trashing the idea altogether, but a part of me just really needs to write this— for my own sake, and for any other bloggers that can potentially relate to my experiences.
The title is a bit vague, but instead of prefacing this post like I usually do with my discussions, I’m just going to dive right in!
