Favourite Review.

Finn @ Evidently Bookish – Book Review: Fireheart Tiger by Aliette de Bodard

I have been 50/50 over whether I wanted to pick this book up, but Finn’s review has definitely convinced me to give it a go. I love how they talk about the dark side to the book, the abuse that the MC suffers, as well as the beauty of the forbidden romance.

 “One of the first descriptors that jumped into my mind for this book was “warmth” and I’ve been trying to find a way to justify it when so much of the book is about tough subjects. I think I can narrow it down to two key causes; the first is Giang. Giang is the alternative to what Thanh experiences with her mother and Eldris.”

Favourite Tag/Meme

Ellie @ Read to Ramble – The Sunshine Blogger Award

Ellie is a brilliant blogger and a great bookish friend! She writes some really up beat and interesting posts and this is no different. I love these kinds of tags for learning bits about the bloggers, and Ellie’s questions are the perfect balance between personal and bookish!

What is your favourite bookish trope?

I think I have to say enemies to lovers here because I love a bit of angst and I love seeing how characters go from despising one another to slowly changing their feelings.”

Favourite general post.

Amy @ A Fangirls Opinion – Fairytales, Legends and Folklore From Around The World

If you know me, then you know I’m a sucker for anything remotely mythology/folklore related so I clicked on this post SO FAST. Amy has collected a great range of fairy tales and folklore from around the globe, and I’ve found so many new ones to check out!

“People have been telling stories about magic, witches, animals and heroes, since ancient times. Fairytales, folklore and legends are full of wild adventures and battles between good and evil. But what I love most about them is the life lessons that can be interpreted from them, and how they vary between cultures to represent colourful beliefs, cultural differences and centuries of wisdom.”
