I have a number of poems that have been sitting on my harddrive gathering dust, so I’m trying to post them here and on IG. It’s made it so I’m posting more than twice a month; and I’m trying not to overthink that.
Oh, forgot to mention I was published in the Backbone zine; it’s free/pay what you can online!
Melissa Caruso’s The Quicksilver Court (Rooks and Ruin #2)
The Obsidian Tower was one of my favorite books last year, so I was very excited for the sequel to come out. While not identical, Ryx and Severin give me similar vibes as Jude and Cardan from Holly Black’s Folk of the Air. Patreon.
Olivia Dade’s All the Feels (Spoiler Alert #2)
If you read fanfic, you gotta check out this series. Plus, a hero who loves fanfic tropes!
Erica Ridley’s Lord of Pleasure (Rogues to Riches #2)
A fun and magical novella with a hint of fairy tale vibes.

“Never have I witnessed a clarification or apology on Twitter lead to reciprocal outreach or reconcilation. The Twitter mob does not say, “Oh, thanks for clarifying. I’m also sorry about the misunderstanding and for jumping to conclusions. Shake hands and move on, shall we?””

Film: Eternals dir. Chloé Zhao
So I know it’s getting mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it. I forgot I was in a movie theater full of people who were too close to me. Love the family dynamics. Also Makkari/Druig that is all.
