Pretty Deadly Words #2//in which there are wicked girls who want to burn the world down & idiot boys platonically in love

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

for someone who claims to be half in love with fantasy, i read very few books that aren’t well, fantasy-with dragons (or phoenixes) and witchcraft and cASTLES AND QUESTS [clamps self]
not that i’m saying that books without flying creatures and castles aren’t fantasy, (okay that’s exactly what i’m saying lol) it’s just that, they’ve been ‘staple’ form of fantasy for years and suddenly i’m seeing a decline in them.

so it is only natural that i, your resident coffee-addicted-writer would take it upon themself and write an adult (new adult?) medievalesque european fantasy! ooh and it also has copious bits of murder and burning as it’s set in the midst of the witch trials! *claps hands* it is fun.

Incoherent Rambles #1 (2021 wrap up+rambling+jan tbr)

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

Hello hello my fellow blogglings! How are you all? How is 2022 treating y’all? 

I literally cannot believe that a new year has started- 2021 felt like blankets, hot cocoa, sniffles, stress and dry laughs~if that makes sense.

SO, HOW ARE YOU ASH?

Why thank you for asking 😁
2022 is feeling the same minus the cocoa 😭😂 and more stress. Lots of stress. Idk why. My mind literally goes “oh hey, [my irl name] isn’t thinking about anything, it’s boring. Let’s add anxiety and stress to spice things up!!” lol. So far my year is pretty okayish, hope yours is going better! 

Irl life aside, I’ve decided to add some features (is that what it’s called??) to this blog! I’ve made a new category called My Incoherent Rambles where i [you guessed it] ramble about anything and everything I want. Well, not everything. A bit like monthly wrap ups, except of my life, not books 😂 wrap ups for books are a separate section. I guess it’s like the #amcurrently hashtag, except it’s a full post.
This is the first in series. I’m hoping to make this a monthly thing- let’s see 🙂
Technically it’s supposed to be at the end of the month, but oh well.
