• I'm In A Bookish RPG?
    #TheReadingQuest TBR!

    If there’s anything you need to know about me, it’s that I’m extremely obsessed with RPG games and the quests that they contain. Some of my favourites include The Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age. So, when I heard of #TheReadingQuest, it was impossible NOT to do it! I’ve had so much fun choosing books to read for this challenge that I’ve never read before but choosing my class was perhaps the easiest decision. I’ve always loved magic, so it wasn’t hard to consider myself a mage already! Beware, I might be filling this post with a ton of game gifs.…

  • Character Confessions
    Beautiful People

    Beautiful People is a writing blog meme hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further. They post questions at the beginning of the month to do with characters in everyone's current WIP. This month's questions are about characters this time and you'll be hearing from the three main characters in A Mirror of Smoke. Each of them are like my brain children (well they did spawn from my mind) and I can't wait to share their stories with you.

  • The Month of Camp NaNo
    July Recap & August Plans

    This month was a bit of a busy one which was to be expected. From participating in Camp NaNoWriMo all the way to the last minute decision to join in BookTube-A-Thon, I had a pretty busy month. It's definitely taught me a lot about time management and how I can better schedule myself in the further months to come.

  • Review:
    Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

    I don't want any of the queens to be devoured, however, because I love them all. Three Dark Crowns was an incredible story, and knowing Kendare Blake's wonderful prose from her Anna series, I knew she wouldn't disappoint in this first installment in this new series. My excitement for One Dark Throne is real, and I cannot wait to see where this series is taken to next.

  • It's essential for our future
    Diversity in Literature

    Everyone deserves to feel represented in all forms of media. It is a human right. To define diversity, I love the definition ‘We Need Diverse Books‘ gave over on their mission statement page, “We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities*, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.” Today, we live in a world where we pride ourselves on how diverse we are. We all come from different backgrounds, have different experiences and different tastes and these should all be celebrated in one way or another. We are different,…

  • Review:
    The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

    The Bone Witch was a beautifully diverse book, with moments of beauty and moments of horror. Plus, beautiful cover! The Bone Witch is definitely one of my favourite reads of this year. It was my cup of Tea. (I'll stop with the puns... maybe) Perhaps, not enough to beat Strange the Dreamer but it still ranks very high! Exploring the story of The Bone Witch along with its world and the Eight Kingdoms was delightful and impressive. The diverse elements of world building were clearly shown which WAS EXCELLENT and seeing these diverse elements integrated into the society so well had me in awe. The prose was captivating, it clung onto me and didn't let me go.
