When I’m Not Reading: Bullet Journal Edition

May 9, 2017 When I'm Not Reading 26

Back in November I made the decision to start bullet journaling. Why did I go down this path? I was getting frustrated with store bought planners because they were never set up how I wanted. Using a bullet journal is like having your own completely customisable planner. You set it up however you want and can include anything you want. After […]

5 LGBTQ+ Books I Need to Read

5 LGBTQ+ Books I Need to Read

May 6, 2017 Discussion 26

Truth be told, I can’t really thing of any books I’ve read that had LGBTQ+ characters or romance at the forefront. The one that comes to mind is Carry On, which I LOVED, but other than that… This lack of LGBTQ+ books in my reading life is not intentional. It’s just that contemporary/ romance in general isn’t a genre I read […]

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

May 3, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

There is a lot of love surrounding Laurie Faria Stolarz’s books. Both of my friends that do not enjoy reading have read her books and liked them. While I found DEADLY LITTLE SECRET to be entertaining, I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it when I was younger. One of my biggest issues with this […]

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)

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. Some of those places are so amazing, I really wish I could visit them. Sitia While Ixia would be either boring or unpleasant (so cold and […]

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 22 ★★½

I think it was a miss After hearing mixed reviews (both online and from friends who DNFed early on) I was really hesitant to start TALON. I love Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey and Blood of Eden books, so I really was hoping this was okay, but the mixed reception had me worried. And unfortunately everything my friends said was true. […]
