Review: THE BONE WITCH SERIES by Rin Chupeco

March 12, 2019

Dark Young Adult Fantasy There is a minor spoiler about the bury your gays trope in this review. Rated: 5 stars across the board. Each book is so damned good. I’m breaking my standard review format and doing all three of these as a series, basically because I read them back to back in a… Read More ›

Safe space in fiction

*Blows the dust off my blog* It’s been a while, if you follow my Twitter you’ll know why, but if you don’t, basically life blew up and it’s taking me some time to find my bearings again. But that’s not why I decided to blog today. I probably should do some sort of wrap up… Read More ›

I’ve gone from frustration, to joy,… Read More ›
