I’ve been looking through my old posts, and I’m constantly like, “I’m really sick! Hanging out at home pumping tea into my veins like an IV!” Having a shit immune system is obviously the greatest time and I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t give it a try. Surprisingly, I actually feel pretty okay today, and I’m feeling proud of myself for making it to one week with my new anxiety medication. I have a bad habit of flaking out on my anxiety meds because it doesn’t feel like anything changed, or I forgot to take them and have to start over again, or some other silly reason, but I’m doing a lot better and it shows. Aside from that brief personal note, I’m doing another Teaser Tuesday this week, which is a weekly bookish meme is hosted by MizB from Books and a Beat. Check them out for more awesome reviews!

Currently Reading: You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner
“My work looks right back at me. It’s the biggest, most beautiful piece I’ve ever done. My gift to Greenlawn. You’re welcome, Universe.”
This quote is from earlier in the book than I’m at right now, but title drop! It’s also, in my opinion, her second biggest and most beautiful work – I’m a huge fan of the Julia-inspired artwork in the tunnel, even though the graffiti whale is gorgeous too. The artwork that is included in the chapters where Julia paints is one of my favorite parts of this book. The visual representation adds a certain spark to the book that I can’t get enough of. – 48% done
Other highlights: deaf + Indian MC, interracial marriage between deaf + lesbian parents, all kinds of deaf culture things, a supporting character who is recovering from an eating disorder, amazing graffiti artwork!! I’m not going to be surprised if there are people who dislike Julia for being kind of abrasive and slacking off with a “who cares” attitude, but I personally like her character a lot and am seriously enjoying this debut so far.
I’ll have my review up tomorrow for a mid-week mini review, so stay tuned for that!
