On writing, duologies, and witchcraft | Q+A with Laure Eve

laure eveAuthor Interview | Laure Eve
Last month I teased on my Instagram that I got to interview the breath-taking Laure Eve and how I hoped to have it all transcribed soon.

Unfortunately for you, I lost the bloody audio.

Luckily Laure is such a Queen that she agreed to re answer the questions over email for us so I can still scream about her work.

I’m actually a little sad that I did loose the audio because we had such a great conversation, but once the others go live too I can also edit in links to there so you can experience some of the magic.

Keep reading to find out more about Laure Eve, The Graces, and her future work. Continue reading “On writing, duologies, and witchcraft | Q+A with Laure Eve”

Remember in December when I made a post about my reading goals for 2019 in which I said “Iโ€™d also like to seriously cut down on the amount of books I get“? *cackles uncontrollably* Yeah me either apparently.

Please note: this post contains summaries from Goodreads and affiliate lonks to purchase the books; you’ll not be charged any extra when purchasing through these. Continue reading “Januarys Book Haul | 40+ books to add to your TBR”

Feminist Icons | Teensgate

Hey guys, I’ve only spoken briefly about Teensgate in my Warming Your Winter post so for those of you who don’t know I’ll give you a little introduction on what it is.

The Teensgate Blogger Netowork is a blogger event run in Waterstones Deansgate by the lovely Kimi. She’s honestly a star to put these events together. In fact lets be real, she’s the first feminist icon to be featured here.

Each event is sponsored by a publisher who provide us with ARCs, goodies, and often questions for us to discuss. Previously I got to read and review Love, Simon and Ella Black thanks to Penguin. Keep reading to find out more about this recent event and what I hauled.
