Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Creepy Settings

Hello beautiful people!

To be frank, I wasn’t really feeling this weeks Top 5 Wednesday discussion; I had done something recently regarding my favourite villains, hence the lack of enthusiasm to redo this topic. The Favourite Creepy topic is from the October of 2017  list…and it sounded MUCH more appealing. Here’s a list of books with some pretty creepy settings!

The Logophile Book Tag

Hello beautiful people!

Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall recently created her own book blog tag called The High School Stereotypes Book Tag. Always wanting to create my own book blog tag, Kelly has inspired me to give it a go!

The tag is called The Logophile Book Tag. A logophile is “a lover of words”. Since I’m truly fascinated with the concept of language and words, this seemed fairly appropriate. All the questions below are based off of remarkable yet seldomly used expressions or terms.

Book Review: The Colonel and the Bee by Patrick Canning

“If there was one thing to know about the Colonel, it was that his brand of reasoning was peculiar and entirely his own. If there was a second thing to be known, it was that his methods often showed results.”

A brilliantly written story full of humor and wit, Patrick Canning’s The Colonel and the Bee features an epic “around-the-world” adventure with rather peculiar characters and a grand treasure hunt. After escaping her brutal life in the circus, Beatrix “Bee” becomes part of the Colonel’s crew on his flying ship and becomes entangled in a mystery adventure like none other. With a captivating plot and a rather humorous undertone, Canning’s novel displays the true essence of the steampunk and adventure genres in a splendid manner.

Bullet Journal October 2018

Hello beautiful people!

Soooooo close to actually posting this before the beginning of the month. I actually finished the my October spread on time, but then life got in the way. I’ve been trying to get back more into yoga and other forms of fitness, so blogging has been somewhat secondary. Anyways, it’s still PRETTY early in the month so if you want to copy this spread you definitely can!

One thing you’ll notice is a slideshow of the previous month in this post. For next month, I plan to post my completed October layout in a slideshow rather than simply placing a slideshow of the previous month not filled out…but I wanted to see how popular this is first before deciding to make this a permanent part of the post.
