    Lord of the Readathon: So It Begins

    Lord of the Readathon

    Calling all Valkyries to Middle Earth! The Beacons of Gondor have been lit, and we must answer its call, whether we creatures of darkness, light, or somewhere in between. It’s July, which means it’s time for THE LORD OF THE READATHON CHALLENGE ⚔️ 👑🐉    Ever since I took a class two quarters ago called Tolkien: A Mythology For England, I’ve been slowly dipping my toes back into his works and the classical stories that inspired his Middle Earth. In truth, I took a break because my university liked to rehash the same old books–Pride & Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Frankenstein, Shakespeare–without ever really having a refreshing, meaningful discussion about them,…

    Book Review: Elemental by Whitney Hill

    Elemental Featured Image

    Attack On TBR: Witches, Fae, And Breaking Up With Blake

    Attack On TBR

    Hello, darling readers. IT’S FRIDAY!!! There’s nothing more exciting to me than a weekend full of book hauls, tea, fun treats, and mail surprises. It’s been over a month since we last took a peek at the reads I revived from the TBR grave, and there’s so much to discuss! From witches and wicked faeries to  sassy serial killers and unrelenting darkness, April was packed so many amazing stories. However, it was also struck with a tinge of disappointment, which is where I’m going to start this talk. After all, endings are really just beginnings in disguise. Blue Moon Laurell K.
