First things first, I want to acknowledge how incredibly mind-blowing this series is. I had a hard time engrossing myself into Six of Crows at first. The beginning made no sense to me whatsoever. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into other than the fact that I was going to be able to understand what everyone’s going crazy about with that book. My first time reading it, I had a lot to take in. Continue reading

We’re My OTP: Ninias? Helnik? HELP!

“I loved your laugh, Nina. And your fierce warrior’s heart. I might have loved you, too.”

Yes, I know, I did this meme once and it just basically disappeared from the face of the Earth. But I created it to fangirl if, and only if, I was in terrible need for fangirling. Otherwise it wouldn’t be as good of a post, and the fangirling wouldn’t come from the bottom of my fangirl heart. And we wouldn’t want that, now, would we? It’s supposed to be a post in which I get to freak out over how cute my OTP is, and no one would get to blame me or point fingers. lol.

So here’s my OTP for this post. One that apparently, the world has not yet come up with an official ship name for. My babies for this week are Nina Zenik & Matthias Helvar. Continue reading

We’re My OTP: Cresswell

“Captain?”
“Yeah?”
“Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?”
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. “No. I’m pretty sure it was Cinder.”

Hi guys!!

So, I finally got the courage to write this post. I was pretty nervous, to say the least. It’s my very first meme, and I wanted everything to be perfect. And I wanted to choose the perfect OTP to start this new meme with. And yes, I chose my babies, Cress and Thorne aka Cresswell. It just feels like a good ship to start this whole meme with. So without further ado, let’s dig into this thing, shall we? Continue reading

Sugar & Gold Book Review

[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]

This book was pretty intense, to say the least. It’s been a while since I’ve come across a good contemporary with a worthy plot-line. The characters were beautifully woven, and their pasts were wonderfully heartbreaking.
Nikolai’s ability was one I didn’t really find that peculiar. I’ve watched a documentary once, on Discovery Science, I think, about a European woman who has Chromesthesia; she sees certain colors when hearing certain sounds. It’s still very different from Nik’s ability, his ken. But it’s science, so I don’t think what Nikolai has is that creepy/weird.
But it didn’t fail to fascinate me. Continue reading

Ah, don’t look so surprised. Nadwa’s doing a wrap up!

Yes, this month, I’ve decided to do a wrap up. Since a lot of stuff happened in May, and it honestly feels like it’s time. I think I made a sloppy wrap-up-post at some point during my wretched amateur blogging times, but this one’s going to be a well-written one -hopefully.  Continue reading
