Top 5 Characters I Would Not Bring Into a Haunted House

Hey everyone! Another Top 5 Tuesday has rolled around again and this week’s topic is particularly interesting! I have to admit this one is a bit hard. Also are we talking about a real haunted house or a fake one? Because I’m talking about a real one… sorry if I got it wrong!  Continue reading “Top 5 Characters I Would Not Bring Into a Haunted House”

First-Impressions: Kingdom of Ash

Image result for kingdom of ashI’m on Chapter 21 and I’m only 17% through. I don’t think words can effectively describe and express the feelings coursing through me right now.

I had forgotten my love for this series. This series introduced me to YA fantasy, and has thus introduced me to a whirlwind of amazing books that have revolutionised my reading and thus, changed me as well because what you read is a personal thing, it affects us all.

I’m so, so glad I decided to read this despite my hesitations over the off-putting romance (although I skip it). Because there are a thousand messages that this series brings, which I think are worth knowing. Continue reading “First-Impressions: Kingdom of Ash”

The Secret to Writing & My Writing Situation

Hello everyone!!

Now the past few months I’ve focused solely on reading books on this blog. Which is strange because I had initially intended for this blog to be about reading and writing. But the thing is, my writing had been slacking significantly so there wasn’t much I had to say about it… Continue reading “The Secret to Writing & My Writing Situation”

Classics I (shockingly) Haven’t Read #1

I have read a lot of classics. The Wizard of Oz, The Secret Garden, Treasure Island, The Wind in the Willows, Call of the Wild, White Fang, The Journey to the Centre of the Earth,  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Little Women, A Little Princess, Anne of Green Gables, Pride and Prejudice and many more.

Which is why it’s surprising (or even shocking) that I haven’t read these.

Tower of Dawn

Image result for tower of dawnTitle: Tower of Dawn

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


This book was a surprise. I didn’t think I’d like it so much. I predicted I’d rate it 3-4 stars. But NO. I rated it five whole stars. Because I had forgotten the amazingness of Sarah J. Maas’s books, I had forgotten how heart-stopping and mesmerising they are.

The beginning drew me in immediately, as I love all things kingdoms – kings, queens, princes and princesses. The world-building is absolutely fantastic in this book, as it is with all her books. The world-building is what knocks up an extra star for me. I love the world-building, I love the world, I love the kingdoms with all their own secrets and traditions.  Continue reading “Tower of Dawn”
