The Gilded King by Josie Jaffrey // Spoiler-Free Review

In the Blue, the world’s last city, all is not well.

Julia is stuck within its walls. She serves the nobility from a distance until she meets Lucas, a boy who believes in fairytales that Julia’s world can’t accommodate. The Blue is her prison, not her castle, and she’d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outside.

But not everyone in the Blue is human, and not everyone can be contained.

Beyond the city’s boundaries, in the wild forests of the Red, Cameron has precious little humanity left to lose. As he searches for a lost queen, he finds an enemy rising that he thought long dead. An enemy that the humans have forgotten how to fight.

One way or another, the walls of the Blue are coming down. The only question is what side you’ll be on when they do.

Recommendations: Autumnal Spooky Reads

So despite having a lot of books to study from now on (I started an A-Level English Literature!!) I still want to dedicate October and November to some atmospheric, creepy reads. This post was inspired by one book in particular, The Silent Companions, which I talk about below. I’ve added a few others, some I’ve read, some I haven’t and I hope you can find something to suit you! If you have any other reads you think are perfect for this time of year, please leave them below!

Blog Tour // The Hurting by Lucy van Smit (Guest Post)

the hurting

‘Nell hates her sister’s illness, her drunken dad, and the daily absence of her mum.

When she meets Lukas, adopted heir to a Norwegian oil fortune, she sees her escape: the two of them running away from the world. But Lukas has his own dark wishes, and soon it’s clear that what joins them goes way beyond love.’

This is survival … and is any boy really worth her soul?

Behind the Blogger Part II – Katy Belle

Lauren Evie (3)

I came across Katy’s Twitter account and therefore, blog, a few months back when another blogger promoted her. If you know me, you know I’m not a huge follower of fashion bloggers. Although I admire them greatly, I’m not into fashion and wear the same thing pretty much every day. Despite Katy being a fashion blogger, she is also a lifestyle blogger and I love her think pieces. Overall, regardless of what style of blogging you’re into, I think you’ll find something you like on Katy Belle’s blog! Here are some questions I asked her –  Continue reading “Behind the Blogger Part II – Katy Belle”

Stranger Series

Not a lot of people know this but Becky and I actually met many years ago on the photography site, Flickr. She was hosting a print giveaway, I entered and was one of the winners. I had to contact her with my postal address and the rest is history, and a lot of Facebook messages. Despite Becky being an actual photographer, I have dabbled in it for a few years and in those years, I have photographed a lot of strangers. I’m not a natural in front of the camera and my social anxiety doesn’t mix with asking people to pose in photographs with me so sometimes I just find strangers who are in the perfect place at the right time and take a snap.
I’ve started this series over on my Instagram and have just called it The Stranger Series. Here is the first part in the blog version and I hope you like them! Continue reading “Stranger Series”
