Happy Top Ten Tuesday! I don’t know why but I feel like I’ve been very absent from my blog and my bookstagram, even though I’ve been posting on the latter everyday and the former has been updated pretty steadily. I think it’s because I’ve read a lot in the past few days. I finished my re-read of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones and fell in love with it all over again. I also just finished The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert, review up Thursday! And I just started reading Castle in the Air, the second book in the Howl’s Moving Castle series!

Instead of choosing between books I loved less and books I loved more, I decided to make a confusing mess of a list with both. TO make it simple, the first five on the list will be Books I Loved Less and the last five will be Books I Loved More. Continue reading

Hey Finland, how’s everything going on your side of the world? With all the dystopia literature set in the States (and the current dystopia narrative currently being written), sometimes we North Americans forget that dystopia narratives can happen in other parts of the world?

You doing okay? Your society hasn’t become a feminist dystopia? Just checking in. Continue reading
