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 […]

July Wrap Up

July Wrap Up

It feels a little odd writing this since I haven’t even been blogging for a full month yet, but oh well. So, anyway, this month’s been fun and has shown me how bad I am at managing my time lol I’ve finally started reading novels again after months of mostly reading manga, though the occasional series does still sneak its way in there. I started reviewing books again rather than just finishing them and moving […]

Review ♦︎ Falling Kingdoms

Review ♦︎ Falling Kingdoms

I feel like this review is going to be hard to write. This book isn’t amazing, and it has some issues with worldbuilding and characterisation, but I enjoyed it. Or, well, parts of it anyway. Mytica is made up of three kingdoms, and they all sound the same. Sure, they’re described differently—the bountiful one, the poor one, the strict and religious one—but they all talk the same ways. There’s no slang, there aren’t many references to […]

Review ♦︎ The Bone Witch

Review ♦︎ The Bone Witch

“Tea,” the figure said. But then it smiled, and it was Fox’s smile, quiet and kind. The Bone Witch is slow to start. The worldbuilding is great, I love the world building and the descriptions are lovely. However, not a lot happens and it drags for a while in the middle before finally getting to the plot in the last ten to fifteen percent of the book. There is so much world building; there’s so much […]

I Love Fandom

I Love Fandom

I kinda wanna talk about fandom for a bit, so: I don’t write fic anymore (when will my writing skills come home from the war?), I can’t draw worth a damn, and beautiful meta or theories about characters or shows seem to be beyond me. But I greatly admire the people who do, especially those that can do it consistently. I’ve always been pretty scared about involving myself in fandom too much; I wrote a fic […]
