Am I getting a hang of this bookish/bloggish photography? Yes? No? Maybe? I literally didn’t have to do a darn thing to the above picture. All of that stuff was just sitting on my table like that. I just adjusted the light. Wheeee. ANYWAY, hi, hello, you’ve reached my first weekly recap, which will so aptly be named ‘Rosie Weekly’ – original, huh?

Let’s take a break from talking about bookish things for a minuscule second. (I know, GASP, what am I thinking?) But hear me out, it’s another topic you most likely love: music! I’m a pretty huge Spotify junkie, and I spend a lot of time listening to new stuff, because I have a wide, WIDE range of things I like to listen to. (So, more than likely, you’ll find something you’re into; welcome to my infinite playlist!)

Meet Scarlett Epstein, BNF (Big Name Fan) in her online community of fanfiction writers, world-class nobody at Melville High. Her best (read: only) IRL friends are Avery, a painfully shy and annoyingly attractive bookworm, and Ruth, her weed-smoking, possibly insane seventy-three-year-old neighbor.
When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school. And if they ever find out what Scarlett truly thinks about them, she’ll be thrust into a situation far more dramatic than anything she’s ever seen on TV…
I was contemplating for a while whether to actually review this book or not, but I thought, heck! Since this was my first completed book of 2018, I might as well.
