#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

Even though it's Monday, it IS the first day on October! Behold! Glorious of all gloriousness! The month when all the dark delights come out to play AND it's socially acceptable to decorate with skulls and bones and blood. Could there be a more joyous month?! No, the answer is no. While I could celebrate [...]

#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

It's the last Monday in July and I honestly don't know how I feel about that 🤔 On the one hand, we're that much closer to cooler weather and my favorite month of the year. On the other, I had a rough month and did not accomplish what I wanted. I guess I'll have to stab [...]

The Cruel Prince – Review

"I can see why humans succumb to the beautiful nightmare of the Court, why they willingly drown in it." Oh boy. It's been nearly a month since I've read this and I still can't decide whether I like this book. I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it. Even though I really want [...]

We open with [...]
