Review ♦︎ Rebel Spring

Review ♦︎ Rebel Spring

Love triangles, love triangles everywhere. You know what this book needs? More love triangles, that’ll help! Please stop. I think I found Rebel Spring more disappointing than Falling Kingdoms. Yes, there were plenty of tropes I disliked in the first one, predictable plotlines, and flat characters, but it was much better than this. It took me that long to get through it that I was almost ready to DNF it, but that wasn’t something I could bring myself […]

Been a while

Been a while

Whoops! I kind of disappeared off the face of the earth for a while there. Sorry about that lol Reasons(/excuses) are as follows: Internet outage for multiple days I had no idea what to do with myself at all. Do I read? Do I translate? Do I do uni stuff? None of it sounded appealing, and I was so bored (´△`)↓ I would have preferred going to work. Uni stuff Some assignments crept up on me […]

Wonder Week Read-A-Thon TBR

Wonder Week Read-A-Thon TBR

From the 25th August to the 1st September, Rimpy’s Reads is hosting Wonder Week Read-A-Thon which sounds like a lot of fun (and probably a lot easier than other read-a-thons I was contemplating joining because I chose the complete worst time possibly to download Final Fantasy XIV). So, the theme is to make a line in the following bingo board. I’m gonna be ambitious and fail at getting 100% of them lol My TBR (going down each column): […]

Code Blue

Code Blue

I know it’s not a book review or otome game review, I know what am I even doing these days? lol But anyway, July marked the beginning of season three of Code Blue, seven years after the end of season two. If it can be treated one second earlier, the heart might start beating again. If there is one extra helicopter, another life in danger may be saved. If one more life can be saved, the […]

I ramble about translating a bit

I ramble about translating a bit

I’ve spoken about it before, but since Lost Eden came out I’ve been slowly (pretty darn slowly, these days) translating character routes from it. It’s a mixture of fun, stressful, and somehow satisfying. When I started, I was posting parts as soon as I’d finished them, and I felt like I had to keep that speed up throughout the entire route. Thankfully, I learnt better after nearly falling asleep at work lol It was pretty lucky […]

Book Buying Ban

Book Buying Ban

I purchase far too many books. I buy so many Kindle books my bank statement is just a long string of AMAZON DOWNLOADS and AMAZON AUST for days and weeks on end; that One-Click Download button is killer. I rarely spend more than maybe five minutes debating on whether the postage from online book sellers is worth it (even when the postage is basically the cost of the books), and I am awful at actually […]

Things I Love Thursday ❤ Fictional Characters

Things I Love Thursday ❤ Fictional Characters

You can tell I haven’t finished a book or an otome game route in a while because I’m going to this is what I’m going for today instead of a review. Oh gosh, I need to finish something soon lol Anyway, let’s get to some fictional characters I love in no particular order❤ Sabetha Belacoros from The Gentleman Bastard Sequence Sabetha is the ‘born queen of all the charmers that ever lived’; she is a fantastic con artist, […]

Good Ends? Never Heard Of Them

Good Ends? Never Heard Of Them

I’m one of those people who can’t make it to the Good End in an otome game to save her life; which, in some cases, the main character’s life does seem to hinge on it sooo… sorry? I’m also the kind of person to always choose the options that lead to my death in Choose Your Own Adventure books too, so maybe I shouldn’t be allowed to make decisions anymore. Ever. I remember my first […]

Plans for August

Plans for August

I don’t actually have any blog posts queued at the moment, which is a little bit annoying because I rely on my queued posts oops. I lie, barely anything is ever queued. But, anyway, I figured that (since I haven’t finished a book or an otome game in a while) I’d ramble on about my TBR and the games I want to play in the hopes that I actually end up doing so lol Here […]
