5 of my Favourite Historical Eras

5 of my Favourite Historical Eras

April 27, 2017 Discussion 20

While fantasy will always be my favourite genre, historical fiction is a pretty close second (especially when it has steampunk, historical, or fantasy elements). Like fantasy, I love exploring the world of the past. It’s fascinating to see how they dealt with life, especially with all those diseases and social conflicts. I’d never want to go and live in the […]

5 Fictional Worlds I Want to Visit (but maybe not live in)

April 24, 2017 Discussion 30

One of the reasons I love fantasy so much is the worlds it lets us visit. We can emerge ourselves in so many different environments, experiencing a lot of different fictional cultures and people.

5 Super Hyped Books I Still Haven’t Read

April 6, 2017 Discussion 44

I’d like to say that uni doesn’t give me any time to read, but let’s be honest, I’m totally procrastinating. Hyped books are TERRIFYING because they come with all these expectations, not to mention the fear of being the black sheep. These are 5 of the many books that received a tonne of hype but I haven’t read yet. A […]

It’s Time for an Intervention

March 28, 2017 Discussion 41

I was innocently perusing Goodreads the other day, adding things to my shelves when I noticed something alarming. I looked at my TBR pile shelf and… well let me show you: And this is where I specify that these are books I actually own.
