Book Review Header

It’s been an incredibly long time since i planned my venture in to the world of Carry On. I have been saying for years now i would be getting around to it in the next few months, maybe next month, maybe next Halloween… but no, it never happened.

Event Header

Last night i was lucky enough to attend The Worlds Collide event with Rainbow Rowell and Leigh Bardugo. These are two authors that i love immensely, so i felt very fortunate when i managed to snag a ticket to the very short U.K tour. Leigh was on the road to promote Cooked Kingdom, the second novel in her Six of Crows duology. As far as everyone was aware, Rainbow just joined on for the hell of it, spreading the joy of her five previous novels.
