ARC review~ The Inexplicable Logic of my Life



~Review~
This book is about finding yourself, finding people in your life who will stick around, and accepting things that mean be out of your control. The Inexplicable Logic of my Life I found was a decent read. It had a wide range of diverse characters that allowed for an entertaining read. Though I had some minor complications with following along with the story. I did however find myself crying every here and there.

Guest Post~ Villians



Me and my very dear friend, BookNut decided it would be fun to pump out two guest posts a month for each other. It took around a month to formulate enough ideas to last a while, but I would say we did a pretty good job.

To kick off this new little feature of ours, We chose to do our "Top Three Villains" and why we sometimes applaud them over our swoon protagonists. 

Now without further ado here is her post

Villains. So magnetic, aren’t they? There’s an almost irresistible pull towards them – whether it is to stand and gawk at their wicked antics, or to simply admire the skill with which they manipulate those around them.

But what makes a memorable villain? One of my favourite quotes is by American writer Agnes Repplier, from her magazine article ‘A Short Defense of Villains’.

She wrote: “A villain must be a thing of power, handled with delicacy and grace. He must be wicked enough to excite our aversion, strong enough to arouse our fear, human enough to awaken some transient gleam of sympathy. We must triumph in his downfall, yet not barbarously nor with contempt, and the close of his career must be in harmony with all its previous development.”

Owlcrate Unboxing~ December


Hello readers! Today I bring you another very special post, one I am very excited to share! Last month, I shared with you all my very first Owlcrate unboxing. Today marks my second unboxing.


For those of you who don't know what OwlCrate is, it is a monthly subscription box that includes a new YA release plus merch pertaining around the set theme for that month.

This months theme was Epic, I didn't get a picture of it, however with the theme card came a little pin to match it 










Within each Owlcrate was a mystery mini funko pop from the Harry Potter series. I was super excited to see which one I would receive. I got Hagrid, which I was very excited about because I absolutely adore him.


The next thing I unboxed, or well the next two things I unboxed were Game of Throne house coasters from Dark Horse Comical, and a Lord of the Rings book pin from Jane Mount


The next thing I unboxed was a greeting card from Susanne Draus, inspired by The Chronicles of  Narnia, and a stunning sticker with a quote from A Darker Shade of Magic, designed by Miss Phi


The book for this month was Of Fire and Stars by Audrey  Coulthurst, and I was very excited to see this in the box because I was super excited to read this book and get my hands on it.

Overall the box was wonderful this month and I look forward to January's box which is Classic Remix!

Did you enjoy this month's unboxing?
