Library Loot #19: Epic & High Fantasies

Fantasy is a beautiful genre. It can be filled with wonder and magic as equally as it can be jam-packed with horror and madness. Similarly to science-fiction, there are no bounds that cannot be reached with fantasy so long as the mind is capable of conjuring it into existence. I think this is why these…

Library Loot #2: Asian Literature & Irish Fantasy

I have come to realise that the library is a dangerous place for me, mostly because I have no restraint when it comes to books! Ever since I snagged a library membership, I’ve always had a maxed-out account of 30 checked out books. I have returned stuff, only to bring home even more things, keeping…

Mini Pre-Summer Book Haul & TBR!

With Summer looming around the corner, I picked up a small stack of books that I’d like to tackle during the heat-stroke-inducing season of melted ice-cream and burned BBQ parties. I’m a bit proud of myself as there is a decent amount of variety to the four books that I’m going to be sharing with…

Happy Wednesday, y’all! Many of you who follow me on Twitter or via other socials may have already heard about my library shenanigans, but I’m going to briefly go over it here today. A few weeks ago, in an effort to fight my low days—common with people who have Bipolar Disorder—as well as to find…

Impromptu Used Books Book Haul! (April 2018)

This past Sunday after attending my regular Dharma service at my local Buddhist temple, I decided to go to a used bookstore.

One of things that is guaranteed to make me re-read a book are genuinely fantastic friendships. Maybe it’s because my family consists of my friends; people who have shared a shattered road of obstacles with me since we were wee, little youngsters. A lot of my favourite platonic relationships in books and anime tend to…

TBR Thursday: Top 3 Epic Fantasies

This meme is inspired by another that was originally created and hosted by: Kimberly Faye Reads. I wanted to do something a little different, so I created my own small version of it. I’ll more than likely do this meme once a month, rather than every week, since I tend to be very moody with…

The Game of Thrones Book Tag – ORIGINAL

In a gleeful bout of fangirl theatrics, I decided to go searching for the Game of Thrones Book Tag. This is a book tag that I created last year with the start of the sixth season. But life got in the way and the tag ended up being shelved along with my massive unread books.…

Review: A Storm of Swords

A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars The third installment in Martin’s epic saga of fantasy painted political intrigue was a very powerful piece of literature. I found it to be far more appealing than the second novel of the series, A Clash of Kings. There are many…
