Book Review - The Night Raven by Sarah Painter

I was very fortunate to be sent a copy of The Night Raven, book 1 in the Crow Investigations series by Sarah Painter in exchange for an honest review. The Night Raven is an urban fantasy mystery set in contemporary London and is currently available from The Book Depository and Amazon. This is my first time giving an in-depth review on my blog so bear with me as I find my feet! Synopsis Meet Lydia Crow… Lydia has always known she has no power, especially next to her infamous and more-than-slightly dodgy family. Which is why she carved her own life as a private investigatorRead More →

Inktober 2018 Prompts - Horror & Supernatural

Welcome to the second post in a series of posts featuring prompts for Inktober – this week the theme is Horror and Supernatural! If you’re not familiar with Inktober I’ll be going into more detail in just a moment but basically it is an art prompt that takes place every October using only ink. There is a set prompt list created by the original Inktober founder, however, it has become such a wonderful community project now that there are so many new prompts popping up each year. Every year Inktober is responsible for the creation of so much fantastic art and connecting people with newRead More →

Songs that remind me of TV Shows & Movies

Oh wow this was a HARD prompt to narrow down. I pick up a lot of music from tv shows and movies, and every time I thought I had this list completed I’d remember another one! I’m sure I’m missing some major ones, and had to physically stop myself going through my entire music library to check for more songs!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVdy8v91Ggk Fall from Grace Buffy the Vampire Slayer I love this song, but I cannot listen to it without seeing the end of season 2 scene play out and imagine just how Buffy must have felt. There are no words to describe that pain,Read More →

5 Fandom Friday - My TBR pile

My TBR pile is massive and has multiple parts. If you head over to my goodreads profile you can see my many bookshelves. I even have my TBR pile divided by whether they’re available at my two local libraries. So, yeah, this prompt was a pest! Narrowing it down to just 5 books was difficult, so I decided to add a sub-category to the prompt. First I considered new releases, new authors, indie books and comics (my local library just got an awesome subscription to Comics Plus so yey access to free digital comics!). In the end, I settled for this; 5 books in ongoingRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Christmas episodes

  I’ve tweaked this weeks prompt slightly; it was christmas movies, but since I could only come up with 2 I decided it would be better to do TV episodes instead!     Bones Season 1, episode 9 – The Man in the Fallout Shelter This was one of the first episodes in Bones for me where things got real, where anything could happen and people could die. An odd episode for a favourite christmas list, but beneath the scary their was heartfelt beautiful love for one another.   Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 3, episode 10 – Amends Amends is, in my opinion, oneRead More →
