Bookstagram on a Budget

Hello, Hello, Hello Friends!


Isn’t this photo pretty? Would you believe that aspects of this were done on a budget? I don’t exactly have much money. I don’t currently have a job so I wind up taking photos of the books I own already but I’ve been trying to do so with some twists.

I thought I’d share my suggestions so you can try them out yourself!

Book Review: The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana


Have you heard of the author Claire Luana? If so then I’m sure you’re excited to hear about her new series! If you haven’t? Then you’re missing out on a great author and read this review anyway.

The Magic of World-Building on World Anvil

Or is that the hell of world-building…

Either works.

Have a map my friend drew as it looks on World Anvil (click the image to get to her art page!)

Hello! Rosina here and I’m finally back to blogging. I’ve had to take some time to figure out what I actually want to do with this blog. And part of that was to focus a little more on writing and helping others with theirs as well as my own.

So to start us off I’ve decided to share a website I’ve found which is really helpful when you need to build a world. And also helpful for you for storing your notes so you can find them as you need them. This is one you might have heard of. I’ve seen talk of it on Tumblr but mostly through roleplayers. Which is also what I’ve been using it for but I thought why not make sure authors definitely know about it?

Love From the Ashes: Ash Princess Blog Tour


Hello, hello!

I’m very happy to be able to say that I’m participating in the Ash Princess UK book tour! I read and reviewed this book through NetGalley back in March (you can find my review here) and I absolutely fell in love! So when Macmillan got in contact with me to ask if I’d like to write anything on the subject of rebel girls? I think I actually squealed.

Theo is a true rebel girl. She suffers from a young age but she only finds it in her to truly do something when she’s forced to do something horrific. As a reader, you understand that but to the cast of characters? Theo is unlikeable for so many different reasons but that just makes her even better. But does this stop her from experiencing romance? Of course not!

Mask of Shadows and Genderfluidity

Hello, my name is Rosina and I use she/her pronouns but I’m actually genderfluid. So when better than pride month to celebrate that? My genderfluidity is something that I’ve only really been figuring out in the last few years. It’s definitely something I thought about briefly as a teenager but…even with the internet, I didn’t really know where to look so I always just brushed it off.

If Mask of Shadows had been out when I’d been a teenager then that would have been…it would have been something.

Mask of Shadows is a YA fantasy novel by Linsey Miller. It’s not own voices but it features a gender fluid MC called Sal who feels realistic. They dress the gender they feel that day and I get that. As it’s the way I deal with my own gender. They’re unapologetic about it and they aim to be the best no matter how people see them.

Book Review: War Storm by Victoria Aveyard

The Red Queen series is officially over. This is both a joyous and miserable occasion because this was an awesome finale but now there’s no more!


That being said this review will contain SPOILERS as I babble about my feelings. So if you don’t want to know what happens then turn back now!

Superheroes are a big thing these days. Whether you’re into Marvel, DC, My Hero Academia or whatever else, you or someone else you know probably has the superhero bug.

And this has slipped into our reading habits as well.

Obvously there have been superhero books around for years but more are comng out or more poeple are beginning to read them. So I’m going to talk about a few I’ve read and loved then finish on a few I want to read.
