Let’s discuss: Why I love crying over books (and fiction in general) | crying while reading kinda became my brand

I'm gonna tell you something about me that most people think is weird: I love crying. I love the feeling of tears rolling down my face, the lump in my throat and even how it can physically hurt. Well, at least I love all of that when fiction makes me cry, not my own life. [...]

We did it loves! We made it through 2020 and believe me when I say that's something you can and should be proud of! 2020 was the year I completely fell in love with reading, writing, blogging and more, so I don't look back at it with only resentment but let's say I'm glad I [...]

Let’s discuss: Why tropes in books aren’t necessarily bad (and enemies to lovers doesn’t have to be toxic)

Let’s discuss: Why tropes in books aren’t necessarily bad (and enemies to lovers doesn’t have to be toxic)

Lately I've noticed that a lot of people associate tropes with a book being unoriginal. They make stories predictable and are full of clichés. Are people who say this wrong? No, of course not, but they only have half of the truth. The thing is, whether you're aware of it or not: if you read, [...]

Let’s discuss: How the bookcommunity influenced me (and keeps on doing so)

I still remember the exact moment that little me discovered that there were not only other people who liked to read, but also people who liked to talk about books. A whole new world opened up in front of me when I found out about this side of the internet. It was so much fun [...]

Review + interview: Master of one by Jaida Jones and Dani Bennett

When I heard that I had the honour of reviewing this book AND interviewing both the authors, I kinda freaked out. There can't be anyone in this world who thought I could resist a YA fantasy with a premise that says it has queer fae in it. Come on, I'm too weak for that! Either [...]

Why Looking for Alaska is my all-time favourite book

There's this very weird thing where people always associate me with Looking for Alaska. I mean, I don't know why they'd think that. It's not like I'm screaming and crying about it all the—oh. I think it's no secret that my all-time favourite book is Looking for Alaska by John Green. I'm constantly talking about [...]
