    A Court Of Mist and Fury – Sarah J Maas (highly recommend this series, Maas is a Maastermind) - YES, I AM PROUD OF THIS PUN

    WASPS AND BEES – I don’t care what ‘The Bee Movie’ teaches, they’re evil and I hate them.

It's a little bit morbid, I admit - but if you're interested in that sort of thing then it would be mega awesome if you could take a quick look! Am willing to read things in return :)

    I've just uploaded my first Movellaa (it's a competition entry and it's kinda short but hey, nevermind).
    Would LOVE some constructive criticism or advice if anyone has the time to check it out because I'm not too sure how I feel about it! Don't mind reading something in return :-)
