Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

I’ve tried time and time again to get into The Infernal Devices, the prequel trilogy to The Mortal Instruments series, but I haven’t been able to. So, I worried that I wouldn’t be able to get into Lady Midnight, the first in a different spin-off. I was pleasantly entranced by the setting and the characters of the novel.

Enemies to Lovers in Drarry Fanfiction

It’s no secret on this blog that I love Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy pairings (“Drarry,” for the uninitiated) in fanfiction. I found that Drarry was the pairing I read the most, by a large margin, in 2018. I think like it and certain other pairings because I have an unabashed love for the enemies-to-lovers… Continue reading Enemies to Lovers in Drarry Fanfiction
