Hi darlings!

You may have noticed if you regularly read my blog, that I haven’t posted anything if the last few days…
Don’t be mad at me, I’ve been reading, but nothing was worth writing about.

However… after many years of not even a letter, I’ve written a novella. I don’t think it’s devastatingly good or a masterpiece of the decade, but it’s mine. I’m very proud of myself and just wanted to share that!

Have a nice day and be safe!

Spice up your life with these great books during the pandemic!

Hello everyone! After having some time to think, I’ve decided to address the fucked up (excuse my French) situation we are currently living in. You may have noticed the whole world is contained in their houses, so it is natural people will seek entertainment on the most popular travel destination available at the moment – the internet.
However, I think this is am incredible opportunity to indulge in a little reading! There are whole worlds waiting to be discovered and you have so much time to be Indiana Jones in this adventure! If not only to be entertained, you could also find a bit of peace by reading about a world not as dark as our own is at the moment…

All that being said, I’ve decided to give you a few recommendations on what to read. I will separate the recommendations into genres. However, I won’t give you any information about what the books themselves are about… I think it is best you simply give yourselves in and explore. (I’ll link my review if I’ve written one, so if you are curious you can read it.)

Two ideas… maybe both uninteresting.

So… if you follow me on Goodreads (which I recommend for many ambiguous reasons) maybe you have noticed that I have been reading lots and lots of romance novels in the past year. As well as having an ongoing interest in reading only that genre, I wanted to explore the world of romance novels. I didn’t realize before just how many subgenres romance had.
Now I have read a lot and experienced many subgenres (not all of them, obviously). I can say now that I have a little knowledge of the genre. I intend to continue reading romance this year since I’ve found real enjoyment in it.

You must be asking yourself why I’m writing this post since it obviously is not a review. Well… I was thinking of maybe organizing a reading marathon. Would some or any of you be interested in reading a steamy romance novel with me?

Also, one other, I’d say much more serious idea/plan… I am thinking of writing a “longer” essay-like critique of the romance genre. In it, I would explore the history of romance novels and talk about some of the main subgenres. I would cover the tropes inside romance novels, their positives, and negatives.

My question is: Would you be interested in reading something like that? Or do you find the idea tiresome?
Leave me comments or contact me privately regarding both ideas.
Have a nice day!
