Hello lovelies! You may have noticed I’m lagging a bit with my posts (What’s new), but this time around it was actually a conscious decision, mainly because I haven’t been reading that much, but also because I needed time for drawing. I’m not really good at multitasking (Even though I do it all the time). Just imagine me trying to juggle 5 apples, 3 oranges, a watermelon and a cat, and dropping them all on my head.
Hello dear readers! I have to admit I could hardly wait for this weeks Top Ten Tuesday! This is something I’ve been *casually* blabbing about for months wherever I could squeeze in my opinion, but now I have a whole damn topic OH MY.
Serial murder may, in fact, be a much older phenomenon than we realize. The stories and legends that have filtered down about witches and werewolves and vampires may have been a way of explaining outrages so hideous that no one in the small and close-knit towns of Europe and early America could comprehend the perversities we now take for granted. Monsters had to be supernatural creatures. They couldn’t be just like us.
Hello lovelies! I know it’s Wednesday, and I am a day late, but I didn’t have enough time yesterday and I wanted to do this right. This is a very special TTT because Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Try to say that three times quickly, I dare you.
Don’t wanna take it slow I’m gonna take you home And watch the world explode From underneath your glow
-If I were a monster, I would have let you drown back in the swamps. -And that’s the difference between us. You think one act of kindness, even self-serving, is enough to not make you one.
Hello dear readers! It’s Tuesday so ya know what we’re doing today! Listing! Is making lists a legit hobby? If not I think we should make it so! This time it’s a very important list in the book world – the coveted summer TBR. While other people make travel plans for the summer, we the bookish people make our reading plans!
Are you in or are you out
The words are stones in my mouth
Hush little baby don’t you cry
Truth comes down
Strikes me in the eye
Sometimes I think illness sits inside every woman, waiting for the right moment to bloom. I have known so many sick women all my life. Women with chronic pain, with ever-gestating diseases. Women with conditions. Men, sure, they have bone snaps, they have backaches, they have a surgery or two, yank out a tonsil, insert a shiny plastic hip. Women get consumed.
If I’d known then what I know now about fairy lore, I would have told my mother to burn that damned pillow and get those cursed teeth as far away from me as possible. Fairies and spirits aren’t generally known for altruism and charity, and a fairy bargain – even one so simple as trading a coin for a tooth – is a dangerous thing.
Hello fellow bookworms! This Tuesday I’ll do a shorter post than usual, because I don’t really find this topic engaging enough to write ten paragraphs. If you’ve been reading my blog, you probably know by now that my TBR is in 2000s oops, and yes, that means I have A LOT of books which I either don’t know or don’t understand why and how they found themselves on my TBR.
Like a flash of light in an endless night
Life is trapped between two black entities
‘Cause when you trust someone, illusion has begun
No way to prepare, impending despair
Hello lovely people! Another weird month of 2020 is behind us, and we’re left wondering what the heck is going to happen next? Is this how we’re going to live from now until the end of the world? Should we just chill and read a book amid this apocalypse?
Hello lovelies, hope you’re having a nice weekend! I was supposed to do this post last Saturday but I was very busy and forgot, so I’ll do it today instead. This time I’m doing one of my all-time favorite series, Outlander.
People like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves.
Hello dear readers! In today’s TTT we’re talking about books that give off a summer vibe, which is weird, because I’m currently freezing to death in my bed. The summer is officially starting in less than three weeks, so the heating is off but Covid ate the sun.
He never knew what I was made of
Heat couldn’t melt me, cold couldn’t waver me
He never knew my form or shape
His heart couldn’t melt me, water couldn’t bathe me
Hello friends! How are you holding up? Are you still quarantined? We’ve been “free” to walk for some time now, but I still haven’t used the opportunity haha. Anyway, it’s Tuesday, and this week’s TTT topic is opening lines. When I think of opening lines, first ones to come to mind are the best ones, the ones that made me fluff up my pillows and grab a large cup of coffee, because I knew I was going on a great adventure, and some of the adventures aren’t done yet, years later.
Hello everyone! After ages, it seems, I’ve been nominated for something again, yay! This time it’s the Mystery Blogger Award, which I’ve done three times in the past, so that explains the #4, and I’ve been tagged by the lovely witch Elara @ Spellbookworm
Hello readers! Are you ready for my favorite TTT yet? This is the one where I talk about my favorite genres and why exactly I love them. The actual topic is “Reasons Why I Love…” and at first I wanted to do Fantasy, then I expanded onto Speculative Fiction, and then I erased it all away and said heck, this is hard!
