Good morning, book and otaku dragons! As I sit here, eating my dark chocolate oatmeal and sipping on my Milo, I have come to realise that it’s been a long time since I’ve written a Weekend Reads post! The last one I wrote went up in November. Since Sir Betrothed and I plan on having…… Continue reading Weekend Reads #9: Sword & Sorcery, Isekai, & Being a Bawse

When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities by Chen Chen – Book Review

Chalk it up to the fact that I am currently writing my own poetry book, or that I have had many experiences last year and the best way for me to process it is via poetry—reading and writing alike. Whatever the reason, I am very grateful for my…… Continue reading When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities by Chen Chen – Book Review

A Place Further Than the Universe: First Impressions (Winter Anime 2018)

The Winter 2018 anime season has officially begun, and I have already had an opportunity to taste some of the offerings. As such you can expect a slew of First Impression posts for the serials that I plan on watching, or have ultimately decided is not my cup of chai. I’m going to begin with…… Continue reading A Place Further Than the Universe: First Impressions (Winter Anime 2018)
