[#AKF] Always Keep Fighting Campaign

Hello reader18672978_745998825605715_3041493500049212964_o.jpgs! Today I bring you a small post not about books, but about a really important campaign.

I’m a big fan of Supernatural. Many of you may watch it, or simply heard of it. This show has a huge following. Not necessarily because of the show itself, but because of the cast. They’re a lovely bunch of people. Every single one of them is just a gift. They’re funny, kind, humble and genuinely care about each other and their fans.

However, they still have their own problems. One of the lead roles, Jared Padalecki, suffers from depression. There were many times where he shared this with his fans, and asked for their support. The SPN Family always gave it, forming an even stronger bond between the cast and the fans.

This made Jared start a campaign to help fund charities that fight depression, self harm and suicide. It’s a touching campaign, especially because fans worldwide have shared their stories, applauded Jared for his honesty and even found strength in him. There are so many videos from panels where a fan would talk about this and they’re really moving.

This week, Jared has relaunched his campaigns. There are hoodies, t-shirts, long sleeved t-shirts and a mug. If anyone is interested in donating, please go here: (I think there are still 3 more designs to go, so this weekend the campaign will probably continue =) )

[Book Review] Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo

Title: Six Of CrowsSix of Crows

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Year Published: 2015

Genre: Fantasy

Personal Review:

[Book Review] Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Before Going In

This book takes place in the Grisha world after the Civil War in Ravkan, which takes place in Leigh Bardugo’s The Grisha Trilogy: Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising.

Now, the most common question about this book was: do I have to read the Grisha Trilogy before I read Six of Crows? The answer… no. There are some references, and understanding what the Grisha are and what they can do can be a bit confusing. This is my second time reading this book, and I now read it after reading the Grisha trilogy. It’s true that you don’t need to read those books first, but now that I have, I understood so many references. People from those books even get mentioned, and I was excited by this added look into what some people we left behind in Ravkan were doing. I also understood much better the different groups of the Grisha and their powers. So it might not be vital, but the trilogy is not bad and it makes things much clearer.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I love my Kindle. I use it every day, and if I’m not reading on it, I’m browsing on Amazon for the next book I want to read.

I’ve made all kinds of lists for myself: lists of books I want to read, lists of books that I wish would be available in Kindle format, and lists of books that I will buy if/when the price drops.

There was a time when I would return to those lists and check each and every book to look for price changes, etc. But now there is a better way. There are several websites that will watch your books for you, and then notify you when the price drops.

My at-the-moment favorite is eReaderIQ

My top 5 Literary Moms

Frannie LancasterGood evening everyone, hope you had an incredible day with your moms or if you are a mom, I hope you were treated like the awesome queen that you are.

In honor of today I thought I’d write about my top 5 literary moms. Now this was a bit difficult because apparently parents have it tough in fantasy and dystopian books. Basically they’re all either dead or don’t amount to much. There are however some badass moms out there.

(The following aren’t in any specific order. Also, BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!) Continue reading “My top 5 Literary Moms”
