GEN’S LIFE HAPPENINGS

  • On Sunday, my friend (the one with the clear glasses) had a 50s-themed party going on so I went with my BF and another friend. My BF (the one with the sunglasses) and I won best dressed!!! There were two couples there that were born in the 50s so it was great to hear their stories from back then. My BF and I played a couples game and we got second place! Obviously, the couple married for more than 30 years won, but we came second so I’m not complaining.

  • I went to see LOGAN with the first two guys on the picture above and holy shit, what a movie! I was not expecting that movie to be so good but WOW! I was blown away! I’m so glad it’s an R-rated movie. It needed to have that reading for it to be so fucking badass!
  • I reached 20K on Instagram on February 28! Great way to end the month, right? Well, by March 3rd, I already had 20.4K… I was in shock! Like, what even?! I can’t thank anybody enough for the support everyone has given me <3

 

GEN’S HAUL

for review

Atria Books sent me the paperback copy of He Will Be My Ruin!! St. Martin’s Press sent me the thriller No Easy Target along with treats for a dog, but since I don’t have a dog, I’ll be giving them to my bff’s dog. Lastly, Berkley sent me Pipe Dreams!!! I can’t wait to know more about Beacon!

bought

I’ve been wanting to read the Bully series by PD and realized I was missing this book so I 1-clicked the kindle copy. I’ll be buddy-reading The Checkmate Duet series with Brianna and Alyssa so I ended up buying the rest of the books!

gifted

A few weeks ago, Benita (creator of the book sleeves a.k.a. book beaus) messaged me, saying she had no idea I was a fan of her work. She asked me which design I wanted because she would send it to me. I started to hyperventilate!! I went with the coffee design obviously and OMG IT’S WONDERFUL!!! Benita is the real MVP (and the first one ever to design book sleeves so go support her!)

 

GEN’S WEEK IN READING

 

I was expecting a whole lot more from Undeclared since I loved the first book and it’s the best NA book out there. Unfortunately, this one lacked everything. What I Need was so good! CJ Tully is bae *heart eyes* (But Ben still has my heart.)

  • You guys looked great at that party!! Congrats again on IG. That is awesome. I love book sleeves. I think I am kind of addicted actually. Love that one!! Hope you enjoy your new books and have a great week!!

  • OMGGGG GEN!!!!! Your outfit is so so so cute! I love it so much! Congrats to you and the BF – second place is awesome. 😀 HUGE congrats on making 20K on Instagram! If I had an Instagram account, I’d be following you. 😀 Unfortunately I didn’t love Undeclared like I loved Undecided – for me, I think it was the second-chance romances (I never like them, it seems. Rarely!). Ahh well. :/ I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a lovely weekend. =)

    Gen, your photo is ADORABLE. Congrats on so much winning! I grew up in a family that revered the elders and their stories, and I grew up listening to some amazing stories. At times it was annoying and boring, and now I am thankful for all those times.

  • I’m so out of the loop with the X-Men franchise, that I kind of need to start from the beginning again. Of course Logan/Wolverine was my favorite character.

    Loving that 50s outfit! So cute!

    Hope you have a great week! ~Aleen

  • Gen – loved the poodle skirt! My hubby and I really want to see Logan. I’m just not sure my in-laws are ready to babysit three kids yet. So we may have to wait until its on demand. Ugh. How lame is that? I miss going to the movies. Sigh. Anyways, have a wonderful week!

  • I love your 50’s outfit, Gen! I really like the fifties styles. Congrats on getting second place. And also congrats on 20k instagram followers, that’s awesome. 😊
