ABOUT THE BOOK:

In this raucous psychological thriller, a disillusioned millennial joins a cliquey fan club, only to discover that the group is bound together by something darker than devotion.

Day after day our narrator searches for meaning beyond her vacuous job at a women’s lifestyle website – entering text into a computer system while she watches their beauty editor unwrap box after box of perfectly packaged bits of happiness. Then, one night at a dive bar, she hears a message in the newest single by international pop-star Adriana Argento, and she is struck. Soon she loses herself to the online fandom, a community whose members feverishly track Adriana’s every move.

When a colleague notices her obsession, she’s invited to join an enigmatic group of adult Adriana superfans who call themselves the Ivies and worship her music in witchy, candlelit listening parties. As the narrator becomes more entrenched in the group, she gets closer to uncovering the sinister secrets that bind them together – while simultaneously losing her grip on reality.

With caustic wit and hypnotic writing, this unsparingly critical thrill ride through millennial life examines all that is wrong in our celebrity-obsessed internet age and how easy it is to lose yourself in it.

My Review

When I first read the synopsis of this book I was intrigued. This was a unique and interesting read! The book explores celebrity obsession and what happens when people take it too far. I enjoyed the writing and the dark feel of this thriller! I really enjoyed this book!

Looking Forward October 2021

Hello, everyone! Happy October! I hope all of you are doing well. I’m doing good! I’m enjoying the fall season as much as I can. I’ve been looking forward to the cooler weather, fall TV premieres and of course everything pumpkin!I have so many things that I am looking forward to this month! It is a month full of treats instead of tricks, hopefully. Anyway, let’s get started!

Video Games

I have been obsessed with a cute cozy game called Cozy Grove. You are a spirit scout that gets stuck on a deserted island and you have to bring color and light back to the island and help the ghost bears. It is a perfect fall game. They have an update that is coming out on October 8th that I am so excited about!

About The Book:

Title: PAHUA AND THE SOUL STEALER

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Lori M. Lee’s middle grade debut about a lonely Hmong girl who discovers she’s a powerful shaman warrior in this fantasy inspired by Southeast Asian mythology.

Pahua Moua has a bit of a reputation for being a weirdo. A lonely eleven-year-old Hmong girl with the unique ability to see spirits, she spends her summer days babysitting her little brother and playing with her best friend, a cat spirit no one else can see.
One day Pahua accidentally untethers an angry spirit from the haunted bridge in her neighborhood–whoops. When her brother suddenly falls sick and can’t be awoken, Pahua fears that the bridge spirit has stolen his soul. She returns to the scene of the crime with her aunt’s old shaman tools, hoping to confront the spirit and demand her brother’s return. Instead, she summons a demon.

Thankfully, a warrior shaman with a bit of an attitude problem shows up at the last minute and saves her butt. With the help of this guide, Pahua will have to find her way through the spirit worlds and rescue her brother’s soul before it’s too late. Little does she know she’ll have her own discoveries to make along the way. . . .


With its unforgettable characters, unique nature-based magic system, breathtaking twists and reveals, and climactic boss battle, this story based on Hmong oral tradition offers everything a fantasy lover could want.

My review

If you are a fan of mythology than this is the perfect book for you! The magic system was so neat! I loved the characters, especially Miv the cat spirit. There is also plenty of suspense and twists to the story that keep you glued to the pages of this book! I really enjoyed this amazing fantasy and I can’t wait to read more!
