Lunar Chronicles

Thank you for joinging me for my first book review of Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Without any delays, I’m just going to jump straight in to it.   This is not the sort of book I usually read, as I am more interested in young adult, but it was still a good read. I…

upcoming book reviews

I was shocked

I was literally like… Wow! The fact that a few people have read my post and it even got a couple of likes was kind of shocking. This is because I don’t really use my wordpress account, so didn’t expect people to visit such a dead blog. On top of that, the short/mini story, or…

The Drunk Vs The Lampost

It was a beautiful day, with the sun setting slowly below the horizon. Unfortunately there weren’t a lot of people out today, but Alex did not mind, he enjoyed the tranquillity. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. After all it wasn’t every day you got to enjoy such a great day with…
