The Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hi friends! πŸ‘‹πŸ» It is still winter here in the UK, and although we don’t have “typical” winters with regular snow thanks to our strange geographical position in the world, we do get very,Β very cold, and we get storms. In fact, it is currently raining as I’m writing this post and has been for two days. That being said, winter is actually my favourite season. I don’t enjoy being hot and I hate hot weather so summer is the worst time of year for me. In fact, I’m pretty sure I have the opposite of most people who get seasonal…

10 Books I Am Determined to Finally Read in 2021

Happy Tuesday friends! πŸ‘‹πŸ» It is no secret that I am a terrible procrastinator. I procrastinated my way through school, sixth form, and university, and still got top marks. I procrastinate, sleeping, eating, drinking water, all sorts of things. And I definitely procrastinate reading certain books. I think we all do this to some degree; it’s not a common book blogger thing to say that your TBR will never shrink for no reason. We all get really excited for new releases and then completely forget about them for months or even years if you’re like me. I have a few…

My Blogging Manifesto

Happy new year, friends! πŸ₯³ 2020 was an absolutely horrible year for me, even though I did start up this blog to keep me occupied, and I am a very cynical person so I haven’t got any hopes for 2021 and haven’t set myself any goals. However, while I’m not making any goals, I have decided to set some blogging guidelines for myself, in what is actually a pretty old idea. I had a blog manifesto for my previous blog, but that was made about six years ago and not only can I not remember what was on it, but…

Happy International Men’s Day to all you guys out there! Earlier this year, before I started this blog over from scratch, I listed five reasons why I love Lois Lane for International Women’s Day. This time around, I wanted to share my love for my favourite superhero and sci-fi hero, Superman! I haven’t always considered Superman to be my favourite superhero. That honour went to Batman for a very long time before I got really bored of the current Batman series, especially the mainline comics written by Tom King who appears to want to fulfil his Catwoman obsession (and I…

Why I Prefer Soft Sci-Fi

In every genre, there will always be a subgenre that we just won’t like and will prefer others over it. In horror, I hate found footage but I love supernatural. And in sci-fi, I definitely refer soft sci-fi over hard sci-fi. There’s nothing objectively wrong with hard sci-fi and it has its fans, but it’s just not for me. Hard sci-fi is a division of science fiction that focuses on what is called the hard sciences. Those are STEM subjects like maths, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, and other sciences that are based on objective facts. Pretty much what you mind…
