An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – A Book Review

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir arrived in my mailbox last year, but I always felt hesitant with picking it up due to the hype surrounding it. In my experience, when a book (or anything really), has a huge boom in popularity, I tend to stray away from it becuse I don’t want…… Continue reading An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – A Book Review

When I was asked about this impending season’s shows and what I was planning on watching, I had realised that I had absolutely no bloody idea what there was to watch!
