Time has been thwacking me on the nose as it flies past; it sits on the edge of Sundays and laughs at my anxiety. Anxiety because I’m on my last few months of the semester and waiting for the evaluation of my thesis.
But let me share some good news! After a visit to my therapist this week, it has been decided that I shall be weaned off my medications! As I sat there listening to my doctor I was overcome with so much emotions I thought I was a YA Fantasy book personified.
Honestly, I’m both petrified and excited at having this huge step a lot closer. Honestly, the book blogging community has contributed positively to my journey. So thank you! I love you loads, my dreamers. Where would I be without you, my readers?
ON THE GRAM
I recommended three Fantasy books I read in 2017! I absolutely loved these books, everything from the premise to the world-building to the writing was spot on! I’ve even written reviews for these books which I’m linking in case you’d like to check them out!
- Magpie’s Song by Allison Pang
- Birthrights by J. Kyle McNeal
- Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
I’ve been having crazy fun taking creative pictures for my bookstagram! It’s taken be a long while but I believe I’ve found my niche. I’m really proud of the above photo. For one, I get scared of putting up pictures of myself on bookstagram. If you follow me there, you might have noticed that I don’t really show my face on that platform! And just the week before I posted a revealing shot, for me at least. This is a step towards confidence and creativity. I can’t wait to share more with you.

LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG
I answered The Book Blogger Test Tag so you could have the chance of judging me! I also have a post on Things Bookworms Do That I Don’t, again for the pleasure of having you judge me. Am I not kind to you? Either that or I’m a masochist.
I’m really happy with The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin; it’s a beautiful book fitting for dreamers like you. For those of you who enjoy literary & historical fiction, elegant prose, and generation/family stories, I’d highly recommend reading The Immortalists!
