Let’s Talk About Idols – Book Edition

So if you follow me on any social media, especially Twitter, you may have noticed that I enjoy fictional idols. I’m not really into K-pop or real Japanese idols or anything. But idols from books, games and anime? Count me in. I kind of want to get some more idol content on my blog, so I thought a great way to do that would be to share a bunch of rec posts.

I’m starting with a blog post about some of the idol books out there. Novels you can pick up in the YA section of the book store. I’ve only read two of these, but it seemed like a good place to start. I’ll be writing more posts on idol manga, anime and games too. So keep an eye out!

These books all follow Korean idols, though my personal preference is reading things set in Japan. Because the majority of popular real idols are Korean, it’s no surprise that books for a western audience will follow them.

Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane? No, It’s a Superhero Book!

Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane? No, It’s a Superhero Book!

Technically this is a post that I’ve written before and have removed. But I’ve been talking to my sister and a friend about superheroes recently. And now I’m just kind of hyped to talk a little bit more about superhero books. I’ve read a few and loved a few, so now is my chance to share some of them with you!

I’m going to try to talk more about the series that I don’t really see people talk about. I adore the Renegades books by Marissa Meyer, but they’re pretty well known and I’ll be avoiding The Extraordinaries by T.J Klune for the same reason. Both of those are books I thoroughly enjoyed but I wanna go a little less popular.

2020: The Time for a Dystopian Return?

2020: The Time for a Dystopian Return?

Ah dystopia. A sub-genre of sci-fi that was all the rage a few years ago. When I was still a teenager myself actually. But it’s a genre that I still love today and I’m hoping to write my own one day.

But a lot of the dystopian books I love aren’t the ones usually recommended.

So with the world being such a mess now and with a new Hunger Games (a series that will never be on my personal dystopian rec list) having coming out this year and a new Legend book last year (definitely worth a read) I thought maybe now’s the time to bring back dystopian books. Vampires are getting a new lease of life after all!

So all these books are completed series. I have three books that I read when I was younger and another series that were written and released within the last few years. These aren’t the only dystopian books I’ve adored and if you want more recs then I’m always happy to provide! Or accept any you want to give me in return!

So let’s get started.
