In 2017, I was determined to diversify the genres I read and break away from my predominately fantasy and historical fiction TBR. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure why I set this goal for myself. Perhaps I was feeling the pressure from people around me on Booktube and in the book blogging world, who seem to … Continue reading The Genre Question
These past few months, or, if I'm honest, the past few years have been defined for my by some pretty severe writer's block. And although I'm slowly breaking out of it, I still have a really long way to go. I think, for me, part of the challenge comes from the fact I am a … Continue reading Writer’s Block

But I figured for today I'd list just … Continue reading Favourite Characters
I wish I could say that this month I just haven't had any time for reading or writing.
