4 pandas

🔮 soft magical colouring
🐱 werewolf girlfriends
🔮 lots of diverse rep (queer, fat, people of colour)
🐱 supernatural baristas working in magical coffee shops
🔮 a non-binary centaur who is obsessed with all things snacks, gossip and their centaur butt
🐱 self-acceptance, love & friendship

Reason for not giving it a 5 star rating is, like other readers, I felt that there were times when the story became rushed especially at the end and there were a few times when the story was a little confusing but otherwise it’s the best magical fluff that you all need in your lives

December TBR | Last Books of 2018

Hey, chilly panda pops!

I simply cannot believe that this is the last TBR of 2018. Every year I have remarked on how quickly the months are passing and now the year is almost over in the blink of an eye. I have read so many amazing books this year and also many books I had planned to read fell by the wayside so this month will be dedicated to catching up on those books!

Book Tag |Sci-Fi Month Part 1

Book Tag |Sci-Fi Month Part 1

So, I know it’s now Friday and not Thursday but I am honestly so behind on everything this week, so play along with me and pretend it’s still Thursday? As its Sci-Fi Month, I wanted to do a Sci-Fi inspired book tag but couldn’t find one that I liked. As Sci-Fi Month has a great photo prompt challenge going on for this month, I thought I would adapt it into a book tag so that a) I could do a book tag and b) because I keep forgetting to do a photo for each daily prompt!

The prompts are by the wonderful imyril and deargeekplace
