Blog Tour review: The Unbroken// A military fantasy with sapphics and colonialism

It is official, give me a book with colonialism and sapphics and I’ll instantly be on my knees.

Wonderful stories and book covers are flourishing in 2021, especially adult fantasies with yellow covers, sapphics and themes of colonialism which basically say “be gay and overthrow your empire”.

If the above keywords weren’t enough to make you add The Unbroken to your TBR, today I present to you a review of the book as part of it’s blog tour hosted by Caffeine Book Tours!

Recommending books based on K-pop songs (or maybe vice versa)

Welcome to me screaming about two of my most favourite things in the world!

It is after I change my blog’s name that I finally decide to talk about music here. Love that for me.

K-pop is something I’ve loved dearly for almost two years at this point. From initially getting into it after listening to BTS’ Boy With Luv in 2019 to listening to countless K-pop artists every single day, the music genre has inevitably become a huge part of my life. The thing about K-pop that I love is the overall relatable and catchy music and the wonderful storytelling through both music videos and lyrics which truly makes them different from other mainstream artists.

I started reading diversely in mid-2020 and have fallen in love with it ever since. Though I’ve been reading ever since I can remember, diverse books have had a huge impact on me because seeing myself and people from all around the world being represented in literature gives me nothing but joy.

So today I am going to mixing both these things and recommending some books based on K-pop songs (or I may be indirectly brainwashing you all to listen to K-pop, no one will ever know 😎)

    January 2021 wrap-up//All I did was study and binge K-dramas

    Why did I think that 2021 was going to be any better than 2020?

    At this point I am bored and fed up of everything because even the smallest thing I do feels like a chore. I also have my finals coming up next month so I will be on a hiatus for most of the month and post only what needs to be posted.

    Our school thinks it is a great idea to ask the students to come to school to write the exams during a pandemic, ultimately risking everyone’s health so let us see how it goes.

    All that apart, January was basically me binging K-dramas and studying for most of the day + some pretty great books!

    The Poppy War review//I never knew pain until this

    Hello there! I know that I haven’t been posting much recently because I recently finished reading The Dragon Republic which has put me in a slump in literally every area of my life.

    All my brain could think was Fang Runin and Yin Nezha so I thought why not write a not-so short review and (try to) express my love for this book!

    I’ve been told that this book would destroy me, which is very very true. Everything about this is perfection. So without any further ado, let’s get into me screaming about The Poppy War!
