It all began with a ruined elixir and a bolt of lightning.
Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she’s been told. The one prophesied for years to be the saviour of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the most powerful tyrant and mage the world has ever known. This would be a suicide task for anyone, let alone a reluctant sixteen-year-old girl with no training.
Guided by his mother’s visions and committed to avenging his family, Prince Titus has sworn to protect Iolanthe even as he prepares her for their battle with the Bane. But he makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the tyrant closing in, Titus must choose between his mission—and her life.
The Burning Sky—the first book in the Elemental Trilogy—is an electrifying and unforgettable novel of intrigue and adventure.
These girls are some of my favourite performers of all the Button Poetry series. They are absolutely wonderful and strong and empowering. As is supposed to be. This one in particular is powerful for woman. Now to let the poem speak for itself.
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan’s own fey powers have been cut off. She’s stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can’t help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

First and foremost, change perspectives on what this “dream body” is.
The first lesson in this post:
Learn to love your body and its flaws
That doesn’t mean you can’t try and improve on it. I’m in the process of doing that myself. I’ve been going through a tough time lately and for me that usually means eating a lot more shitty food and avoiding the gym like the plague. It sucks and it’s a cycle I know happens because then I just feel worse and worse until I’m on my feet again. So, I’ve gained some weight I don’t really want and plan on working it off. Not for anyone else though. It’s for me and my confidence.
It’s so important that when working on yourself, you focus on your mindset at the same time. Continue reading “How To Build Your Dream Body With HIIT”
Dream and dream big, one of my many life mottos. In particular, travelling the world is one of those dreams on the very top of my list. I’m nowhere near rich, but somehow someday I’m going to get that done and that’s what this new series of posts is all about.

I’ve read so many books in the past few months, I had to make this post eventually. Let the reading of wonderful books continue, a prayer to the book gods haha.
Mind Games (Mind Games #1)
Now Fia’s falling in love with a boy who has dark secrets of his own. And with his help, she’s ready to fight back. They stole her past. They control her present. But she won’t let them take her future.
This book managed to worm its way into my favourites. Not the best read I’ve ever had by any means, but it was new, cunning and interesting. Perspectives hit me easily. The review on this should be out shortly.
Swallowing Darkness (Merry Gentry #7)
I am Meredith Nic Essus, and those who would defy and destroy me are destined to pay a terrible price—for I am truly my father’s daughter. To protect what is mine, I will sacrifice anything—even if it means waging a great battle against my darkest enemies and making the most momentous decision ever made as princess of faerie.
Ah the Merry Gentry series hit me hard. The first book is much further up this list, trust me. This one in particular touched on my favourite character and Merry’s relationship so much more, loved it. I plan on writing a review for this eventually.

What can I say? Mercy must have one of the best senses of humour than any other character from my other books. Wonderful and love her so much. This is also a wonderful sum up to the book.
Stay tuned for my review of this book.
And the mini reviews continue, with books from school. Ah the classics. I normally wouldn’t bother with these kinds actually, but I found some of the ones I read this year and last much more interesting and insightful than I’d been lead to believe. Since I read them all awhile ago now, mini review is a bit easier. Hehe
This one goes to the age-old complainers of being in the friend zone. First two lines sums it up perfectly.
This is something that gets to me simply for the point they make that I see all the time. Some guys seem to think that by being kind and a friend, they are obliged to something in return. Specifically, the female booty. So no, give it a fucking rest. done, so done.
