Honestly, this whole ‘stuck at home’ thing really suits me. I’m not someone who gets bored easily. There’s a million things on my mind at a time and I know how to always entertain myself. So I love that one of my favourite bloggers and most cherished book friends Alex from Reading by Starlight tagged me in The Stuck at Home Book Tag. I love this tag because of the straight forward questions and also, it feels like a catch-up on what I’m reading, plan to read and what I’m doing whilst stuck at home!Continue reading “The Stuck at Home Book Tag”
House of Blood and Earth By Sarah J. Maas – A Book Review
Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.
House of Blood and Earth’s pages held a lot of what Sarah J. Maas is known for – femme fatale characters, hot supernatural beings and brooding mythical males. Some people are probably rolling their eyes already, however I think there’s something to be said for writing what you know. And despite a really rough beginning with a lot of info dumping, House of Blood and Earth turned out to be a really charming story, where friendship was at the centre of it all.

Hello book lovers! I’m back with another currently reading post inspired the weekly WWW meme that Taking on a World of Words hosts.

FANCASTING: THE DIVINERS SERIES PART II
Hello Bookworms! I usually say ‘happy Friday’ when I post on a Friday (is Friday not your favourite day of the week?) But nowadays I’m usually like “what day is it?” So I’ll ask how are you? And hope that you’re all okay and taking care of yourselves as best you can.
Writing blog posts have been keeping me especially busy and I’m so thankful for it. I love writing these posts too, because I love book adaptations. If you haven’t seen Part I to my Diviners fancasting, you should definitely check that out if you’re a fan of this series and let me know what you think of my casting choices!
NO Spoilers for the series either! 😊

FANCASTING: THE DIVINERS SERIES BY LIBBA BRAY
Hello bookworms, how are you?! These last few months I’ve been binge-listening to The Diviners series by Libba Bray on audio, and I’ve come to easily love these merry band of magical ghost hunters. This series interchanges between 8 main narrators and when there’s such a large cast of characters, I personally need to appoint a real face to every main character otherwise I get so lost.
I’m not going to be humble, the four characters I’ve fan-casted I feel pretty passionately about. Some aren’t conventional (no, I didn’t use Elle Fanning as Evie) but personally that’s what I like about them. I think the only flaw of my list is that these actors aren’t close in age to the characters, but I’m pro-ageing characters up in adaptations, so please don’t hold it against me. Also, there’ll be no spoilers for the series! 😊
