About & Navi

Blog | GoodreadsTwitter | Instagram | Youtube

I’m Elise and I’m an INTJ and a Slytherin / Ravenclaw (no one asked, J.K.) and I like to read books and be opinionated
♔ I love my friends and being nice to fellow nice people and avoiding drama
♚ please just don’t be an asshole about my opinions it’s a review blog not a Reviews That Agree With You blog
♔ DO message me with your unpopular opinions!!
♚ DON’T be afraid of me I’ve only bitten like 3 people

I post arc reviews, book chats, and recommendation lists on this blog; I write reviews for every book I read on my Goodreads account and just repost a lot of my best ones [especially popular books & upcoming releases] here. I read around five books a week, meaning I can’t possibly review everything here without spamming. So check me out there!

I’m someone with a lot of reasons to care about diversity in books, so I talk about it A LOT. I want to clear something up: it is absolutely fine if you disagree with me about a problematic book, and I’m not telling you you’re problematic for reading / liking the book. In fact, if you disagree, please comment politely, because I’d love to have polite discussions! BUT: do not treat me like an uneducated child and do not talk about me behind my back. It’s rude, it’s petty, and it takes away your credibility anyway.

Please look for recommendations on my Recs tab, my sapphic books Goodreads list, and the the Five Star section of my Goodreads!!

♔ basically I read for characters and don’t even pretend to give a shit about plot
♚ suspenseful speculative fic is my niche genre
♔ I love developed morally grey girls
♚ Adam Parrish and Inej Ghafa defense squad
♔ pet peeve: Hawt Abusive Manly Bad Boys
♚ I know too many in real life
♔ writing advice: make it gayer
♚ I love emotional catharsis, i.e. painful-yet-hopeful endings and characters getting verbally dragged
♔ the enemies to friends to lovers trope is God Tier and I love morally shitty characters forming healthy relationships

♔ “#1 The Abyss Surrounds Us stan” -Amy
