Chain of Iron

Chain of Iron by @cassieclare1 (#gifted@panmacmillansakids ) has been one of my must reads since I've finished Chain of Gold last year. I have fallen in love with this story world and it's old - timey feel, fantastical quotes and it's mind churning plot twists. This is a fandom that has completely swept me up! I wasn't the … Continue reading Chain of Iron

Percy Jackson en die Weerlig Dief

A huge thank you to @penguinbooksya for #gifting me a copy of Percy Jackson en die Weerlig dief. So for those who don't know, English is my second language. I'm raised and taught in Afrikaans.
