Welcome to the first edition of this newly formed feature: Off Tangent Thoughts where I’ll let present before you a list of my crazy, fanatic thoughts on bookish events and situations because apparently you find them hilarious. My original post that sparked this idea was Thoughts I Have While Reading A Slow-Burn Romance and my notifications absolutely blew up after that.
Hence this series.
Have fun taking a peek inside my psychotic fangirl mind!

Paying due respect to all the characters who died in front of my eyes(aka while I was reading) and took a part of my soul with them.
