So at the start of April, our first ever joint travel expedition took place and we settled on Austria. I put the idea out there when I saw the most beautiful photo of Fortress Hohensalzburg on Google (perhaps the most well-known feature of Salzburg.) Becky agreed that we definitely needed to visit. We spent two days in Salzburg and then travelled via train to Vienna, where we spent three days. We didn’t know how we were going to present all the photos we both took but we finally decided on splitting them between the two cities. So, in this first post, we hope you enjoy Salzburg through our eyes and we both agree when we say we would definitely recommend this city – it really is as beautiful as it looks.
So before we actually show you our generic tourist-esque photos from out trip to Austria (and there’s a lot) I decided to give you a teaser featuring my favourite things in the world, dogs! And yes, I’m one of those annoying people that shout ‘DOG!’ whenever I see one. These are some quick snaps I took of the ones we saw during our trip and an added extra. Let me know if you have dogs in the comments and if so, tell me a bit about them! For now, I hope you like these photos!
You may or may not remember us but we are back this time, I promise. I suppose I haven’t been updating because I have not read very much this year compared to 2017. I have so far only read 25 books out of my goal of 50. I’m disappointed with myself but at the same time, I don’t want to read just for the sake of it. However, out of the few books I’ve read, I have found some new favourites so I’m going to attempt the mid-year book tag! We are also going to be blogging about our joint trip to Austria in April so stay tuned for that and thank you for sticking with us! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag”

So, a couple of weeks ago, the highly anticipated ACOFAS was released, and I definitely got swept up in the hype. I’ve avoided reviewing books from this series, but I’m going to try my best to write up a review for this novella!
note: I will be reviewing this for what it is – a novella bridging the first trilogy to the next set of books set in this world. When ACOFAS was announced, we knew it’d be a novella, not another huge novel – and at 270 pages, it’s still a fairly long novella!
PS. this review WILL contain spoilers for ACOFAS.
Hey guys! So after an unexpectedly long break from posting where we made a huge bulk order for our store and went on holiday, we’re (hopefully) back to our usual posting.
I was actually inspired by Grace’s post to write this, although mine ended up turning out quite different to hers. Trying to reminisce about my romantic encounters pulled up a story I didn’t realise I was ready to tell.
Content warning: emotional and sexual abuse, depression, self harm
“If we lived forever, maybe we’d have time to understand things. But as it is, I think the best we can do is try to open our eyes, and appreciate how strange and brief all of this is.”
What Remains of Edith Finch is a mystery adventure and walking simulator video game developed by Giant Sparrow. It is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state narrated by the last surviving member, Edith Finch. Although each of the family member’s tales are told in different and unique ways, they are all told in first-person perspective and all end with their deaths.
