Blogtober // Hex Life Review

Blogtober // Hex Life Review

These are tales of witches, wickedness, evil and cunning. Stories of disruption and subversion by today’s women you should fear. Including Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine and Sherrilyn Kenyon writing in their own bestselling universes.

These witches might be monstrous, or they might be heroes, depending on their own definitions. Even the kind hostess with the candy cottage thought of herself as the hero of her own story. After all, a woman’s gotta eat…

I was kindly sent this book from Titan in exchange for an honest review.

Blogtober // How I Create Autumnal Book Photos

Blogtober // How I Create Autumnal Book Photos

Hi guys!
Today’s post is something a bit different but definitely something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while. I often get asked about my bookstagram photos, how I edit them, the way I shoot them etc, so I thought I’d do the best I could to talk through my process. Photography, especially fine art portraiture, has been a huge passion of mine for ten years now and I’ve done photography professionally for over half of that time (shooting weddings, model look books, album covers and general portraits) so I at least hope that I’m able to share a few good tips at this point! If anyone’s interested, my old Flickr account hasn’t been updated for years but it’s still there if you want to take a look!

Blogtober ARC Review // Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin

Blogtober ARC Review // Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin

Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.

Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.

Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.

The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.

And love makes fools of us all.

Blogtober // September Witch Casket Unboxing

Blogtober // September Witch Casket Unboxing

In September, I purchased my first Witch Casket box after following them on Instagram for a long time and loving their items. I have to say the box definitely surpassed my expectations – there were fourteen items included, with many of them being exclusive to this box. Witch Crafts don’t release a theme beforehand, but Septembers box was all about meditation and mindfulness, and the items definitely reflected that. Click below to see what was inside!

One of the best parts of Halloween is seeing how people dress up each year. Coming from somebody who hasn’t dressed up for years, I like to admire from a distance and we thought today we would pick some of our favourite fictional characters and include some clothing items you could pick up to dress up as them! Of course this isn’t just for Halloween and you can cosplay any day of the year but isn’t October 31st just the perfect excuse to? Continue reading “Blogtober // Fictional Character Cosplay Ideas”

Blogtober // 2019: The Year of the (Fictional) Witch Part II

Blogtober // 2019: The Year of the (Fictional) Witch Part II

Near the start of the year, I put together a list of witchy upcoming releases that were high on my TBR. I really loved putting this list together, so decided to do a second part! View part one here.

Some of these books are already released and a couple were actually released closer to the beginning of the year – however, I wanted to include them since I wasn’t aware of them when I wrote part I!
