Outlander - Season 1 (Part 1)



As I’ve told you before, I really love the book Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, I’ve actually read the first books in the series and they’re all wonderful, even if they’ve hurt my feelings (A LOT) more than once.

The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4) by Julie Kagawa + Extra

Title: The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance, Adventure
Published: October 2011

My Rating: 4/5


'My name - my True Name - is Ashallayn’ darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…'

To cold faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought. 

Then Meghan Chase - a half human, half fey slip of a girl - smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.

With the unwelcome company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end - a quest to find a way to honor his vow to stand by Meghan's side. 

To survive in the Iron Realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Halloween Costume Ideas


Guess who’s really boring and is not dressing up for Halloween! Woooo!!

Some friends and I were thinking of having a horror movie marathon after getting some things done for university this weekend and I thought ‘Well, I may dress up for that then’. But out of nowhere came a lot more work to do, so we won’t be having time for that. Sad, I know.

So I’ve been celebrating Halloween this week in my one way in the little free time I’ve been able to get my hands on.

Twenty-four-year-old grad student Lizzie Bennet is saddled with student loan debt and still living at home along with her two sisters - beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia.

Featuring plenty of fresh twists to delight fans and new readers alike, 'The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet' expands on the web series phenomenon that captivated a generation and reimagines the 'Pride and Prejudice' story like never before.

The year is 1945.

For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Gametalk: Atelier Rorona


This is a game I played some time ago and just recently I finished Atelier Meruru, the third game in the Arland series, and I loved both of them much that I decided to talk about them, starting with the first one, of course.
