  • Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
    -
    Games of Power and Deceit are always my Favourite

    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.

    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,…

  • The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
    -
    Diversity, Magic and Dancing Galore!

    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.

    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 generally to do with characters but this month it’s all about me! (in the least narcissistic way possible) Since I’m currently doing Camp NaNoWriMo, I’ve been writing my current WIP as fast as I can and it’s been going great! I’ve managed to get everything outlined (apart from one subplot) and I should hopefully finish this draft by the middle of August. To anyone else doing Camp NaNo, good luck! The questions…

    Series I've Been Meaning To Start

    As a reader, if I’m guilty of one thing it’s that I haven’t started series that I’ve been meaning to. I want to read all of the books, but that also means that my TBR pile is massive. I’m currently being drowned in my TBR but once I’ve discovered the secret to immortality, I’ll finally beat it! It really bugs me too because I’ve bought many Book Ones of series but I just haven’t started since they’re deep in my TBR pile. Hence, today’s post is dedicated to a series of book series that I’ve been meaning to start but haven’t.…
