Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update of how my reading has been going over the past week! I have been sick lately and school is really starting to heat up, so I haven’t been reading as much, but I’m hoping that’s all about to change! 🤞🤞🤞

Artemis Fowl & The Opal Deception
As I’m writing this post I’m roughly 70ish% of the way through and hoping to have it finished by tonight. I’m really enjoying being back in this world and I’m loving how inventive the plots of these books are! I also really appreciate how Eoin Colfer never talks down to the reader (this is middle-grade). Just in general, this series is a total blast, and I can’t wait to continue the series, especially because I think there’s a new book coming out early next year???
You Must Not Miss | ★★★☆☆
I actually only just finished reading this yesterday and I’ve gotta tell you, folks, I have no idea what I just read. I think that if you like Stranger Things, Coraline or the Wayward Children series/Narnia you are going to LOVE this, but I recommend reading the blurb first!!
I basically never read the blurb because 99.9% of the time I don’t need to, but this was that 0.01% where I really REALLY should have! I went into this thinking it was going to be a hard-hitting contemporary, and it certainly started like one and kept up those themes, but then it became a low-fantasy/magical realism kind of deal, which I just found really confusing, mostly because I was not expecting it! Honestly, this was not the kind of book that I would ever really pick up, so if I had have known this wasn’t a straight-contemporary I probably would never have read it. But, If you like Coraline and the idea of opening a door into a new world I really think you should pick this up!
Fix Her Up
I have no idea what this is about except I think there’s a clown and I’m guessing there’s a Tradie in the mix because of the ladder on the cover? All I know is that I love the cover and Rebecca really enjoyed this so I’m hoping to get this read over the weekend, or by next Wednesday, at the latest!
