My Thoughts on the Love Triangle Book Trope

My Thoughts on the Love Triangle Book Trope

Oh, the love triangle trope. So many books include this in one way or another to add a dash of drama and conflict. Typically I find it to be done poorly, as you almost always know which individual a character is going to end up with. The other is just there, and either they are used to make the first individual appear to be the better option. Or leads to cheating occurring, which is a massive no for me. There are a few times where this trope was done, where I didn't mind it being included. So, I decided to look at how a few different book series approached this trope and what worked and didn't work for these series.…

Magical Readathon 2020: O.W.L.s Wrap Up

Magical Readathon 2020: O.W.L.s Wrap Up

It's been a month since I posted my Magical Readathon 2020: O.W.L.s. TBR. And during that time period, I did manage to complete it! However, some of of my selections changed. Unfortunately, as I didn't learn about this readathon until it was done, so I could not submit my reading for the official house competition. However, I did still enjoy this readathon, and it sparked my desire to read again. As I was in a bit of a reading slump before that. …

I've never done a readathon before, but after going a blogging pod over on Twitter, I've been more curious about these. Which is precisely where I learned about the Magical Readathon through Belle Rose Reads. Basically it's a way of organizing your reading list, where you a book or multiple books from start to finish without reading other books in between or taking long breaks.

The Pop Culture Download #13: Clockwork Prince & Clockwork Princess

The Pop Culture Download #13: Clockwork Prince & Clockwork Princess

This week I have been heavily reading completing the rest of The Infernal Devices series: Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, by Cassandra Clare. Now I have no idea what I'm going to go onto next. Comparing the three series in the Shadowhunter Chronicles, I would have to put this one in second place after the first half of The Mortal Instruments (City of Bones to City of Glass). I love the second half of The Mortal Instruments, but The Infernal Devices just ranks slightly higher than those. The Dark Artifices comes in after followed by Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. …

The Pop Culture Download #12: Clockwork Angel & Disney

For the past week I have not been feeling well, so I skipped on blogging to focus on getting better. Not that it actually helped much considering I was still on my computer technically writing and playing video games. I also have watched a lot of shows and read quite a bit, so let's go over the new items that I've discovered or enjoyed this week.…
