  14. Oooh. I pre-ordered This Is What Happy Looks Like since I loved her first one. Reboot, Parallel, and Born of Illusion are all on my tbr. I should pick up Requiem from the library soon. So looking forward to reading it!

Super excited for Parallel, Transparent, and Reboot. Curious what you thought of Requiem. I did not like the ending as I was expecting but it's growing on me. I didn't like Lena's back and forth. But it was a pretty exciting book.
