Chilling. Relaxing. So yea…how do you chill? What relaxes you? Other than the obvious, I mean… Like…reading helps me to relax, but I usually get so involved or lost in the story and characters, that I end up tenser than when I started. Writing helps me most, I think. I don’t mean blogging…although this is relatively pleasant too. Writing code, writing down ideas, writing fanfiction, writing short stories or scenarios (harks back to the ideas, I suppose) helps me to unwind. But honestly, fanfiction probably helps the most. Why? Because I can write about already established characters, but twist and … Continue reading Dude has no chill.
You know when a book is so good, that once you’ve finished it (like 7 times), when you try to read something else – but all that’s in your head is how freaking amazing the last book was. Yea. That. I love Sarah J. Maas, I am in love with her writing. I’m a huge fan of the Throne Of Glass series, so last year when I saw she had released a new series – A Court of Thorns and Roses, I bought it. Not really expecting to love it as much as I love ToG. How wrong I was… … Continue reading The Book Hangover
So, it’s that time of the year again, kids. The Christmas tree is up, the fairy lights are twinkling, there’s glitter everywhere and I have the need to read Christmas books. With a twist. I don’t do romance novels, never have, probably never will. I don’t want a nice festive fairytale romance or any shtako like that. What I love to read at Christmas is horror, maybe some thriller, and I don’t mind a bit of crime either. Allow me to list some of the books I’ve been reading, and some that I plan to read, over the next few … Continue reading Books to read over the festive period: Snow by Ronald Malfi
I’m not even really sure what this post is about anymore…this amazing book, or an indepth review of my life… I was in a book shop a couple of weeks ago, when I came across this book called ‘Ready Player One’. The cover is what caught my eye, so I picked it up, checked out the synopsis…and instantly knew I had to read this book… After just reading the initial prologue, I was mind blown. This book…WoW 😉 the characters are so easy to love, to relate to. And the bad guys are so easy to despise, you actually want … Continue reading Ready Player One
So I gave the 1st episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ a watch, last week, via SkyPlayer (on my XBox, yay). At first, I thought ‘meh’…by the end of the episode, I was utterly hooked. I watched episode 2 on Tuesday (SkyPlayer, again), and yea…I am in love with this show. I’ve heard of the ‘A Song of Ice & Fire’ books before, but I was never really compelled to read them, until now. I started reading book 1 (A Game of Thrones) last night, and I’m already having trouble putting it down. I absolutely adore the character ‘Daenerys “Dany” Stormborn/Targaryen’, the character … Continue reading Game of Thrones
