A Line in the Dark: Blog Tour + Review!

Marianne's Review: A  Line  in  the  Dark  is  not  your  typical  f/f  love  story  with  a  happy  ending.  In  fact,  itʼs not  a  love  story,  and  the  main  character  doesnʼt  have  a  romance  arc  at  all.  A  Line in  the  Dark  is  a  tale  of  best  friends,  and  what  you  find  yourself  doing  for  them … Continue reading A Line in the Dark: Blog Tour + Review!

The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson: Raw, Potent and Enlightening.

I got to read the new and expanded version of this poetry collection so my opinion may be a bit biased. Even though I'm a huge fan of novels and long series, sometimes you just want to dive into your feelings and read something that won't work up your fictional motors. Poetry is cathartic for … Continue reading The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson: Raw, Potent and Enlightening.

I did enjoy that it was a retelling of the Little Mermaid … Continue reading Walking on Knives by Maya Chabbra: Mini ARC Review!
