March TBR

March TBR

Hi, guys! Okay, so it’s a little late this month, but I’m back with my March TBR. I hadn’t created it until today, though I’d had an idea of the books I wanted to get through, but I figured it was time to get it officially worked out and written down.

We’ll just take a quick look back at February’s list first, of course.Read More »

February TBR

February TBR

Hi, guys! Well, January is gone and February is here–and with only four weeks this month, it’s time to get some serious reading done. I took part in both a manga reading challenge and the 24in48 readathon last month, both of which saw me get through a lot of books, although not sooooooo many from my January TBR.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at that list!

January TBR

January TBR

Hello, all! Long time, no see, huh? Not going to lie–I took a little break over Christmas/New Year which I hadn’t expected to, but I’m back now and ready to go with this blog and all the writing and everything else. I’m hoping to sort out a bunch of new things on here over the next month or so, so keep your eyes peeled!Read More »

After Z-Day – Part I – Chapter XI

Chapter Eleven

Location: Hackney, London
Date: 12 October 2016

I thought about it all the way home. I got off my bus a few stops early—a child was screaming its head off and I couldn’t think—and walked the rest of the way, still dwelling on the symbol and where I’d seen it before.

It had to be recently; it didn’t feel like something I’d seen years ago. But what? I came across so many different things—I was going to have to go back over everything I’d done the last few months and work out what this was all connected to.Read More »

After Z-Day – Part I – Chapter X

Chapter Ten

Location: Waltham Forest, London
Date: 12 October 2016

My phone kept ringing. I’d put it on silent but I didn’t dare turn it off altogether—just in case. So instead, I could feel it vibrating in my hand every time someone called.

Naomi had called, but had given up after the second time. I’d sent her a text; I didn’t want to worry her too much.Read More »

Tacenda – Chapter Four

CHAPTER FOUR

scopaesthesia

(n.) the feeling of being stared at

The trees hugged the edge of the village in a way that meant Amber only realised she was crossing into it when she saw the first sign.

Welcome to Lower Cwealm. Amber paused, staring at it for a moment with a frown. Underneath, it said, Twinned with, and then instead of a town in France or Germany, as she expected, there was a word she couldn’t read.

She wasn’t even sure what alphabet it was in.Read More »

After Z-Day – Part I – Chapter IX

Chapter Nine

Location: Waltham Forest, London
Date: 12 October 2016

I slept, all in all, for maybe thirty minutes that night. By the time I got back to the flat, it was gone two, but Naomi was still awake, had waited up for me. I knew she didn’t like Lucy that much, but still, she sat with me when I cried, hugged me and offered to sit with my phone while I got some rest.

At four, I told her to go to bed. She went but kept her door open a crack and I knew it was in case anything happened, in case I did anything stupid. I couldn’t blame her for that—I wasn’t in a great frame of mind for doing sensible things.Read More »
