The realm’s darkest secret is out.

The cruelty of the capital and the power-hungry King Arden have scattered Bleak and her companions across the continents.

On the run in a foreign land, Bleak finds herself tied to some unexpected strangers. When the answers she yearns for are finally within reach, she must face the hard truths of her past, and take her fate into her own hands before it’s too late.

Meanwhile, secrets and magic unravel as a dark power corrupts the realm. Bleak’s friends are forced to decide where their loyalties lie, and who, if anyone, they can trust.

But one thing is certain: war is coming, and they must all be ready when it does.

Intriguing and action-packed, Reign of Mist is the second installment in Helen Scheuerer’s epic YA fantasy series, The Oremere Chronicles.

In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.

Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital.

But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers.

The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated.

Heart of Mist is the gripping first book in The Oremere Chronicles, a fantasy series of epic proportions.

WWW Wednesday #3!

img_1384-0Hello, dearies!

Welcome to this week’s edition of WWW Wednesdays! This is a meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and it’s pretty simple, we just answer the 3 Ws:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

This is my second feature for WWW Wednesdays, the first one dating back to October last year. I’m trying to include more non-review posts so please expect the occasional WWW Wednesday here where I highlight my current and recent reads. Although with my reading rate, they may come in only once a month or something. Hehe, forgive me.


What are you currently reading?

Sputnik Sweetheart

Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami is one of those books that I never touched again after I bought them from MIBF years ago. A friend and I decided to pick up Murakami books and compare notes on his writing and stuff. I’m still on the first chapters but so far, I find his storytelling compelling.

May 2018 || A new logo, a good reading month, and uhm, some feelings about blogging

Hello, again people of the book universe!

Welcome to yet another late wrap-up where I (try to) recall the events of the previous month. I admit that I have a ridiculously short memory so I’m just writing things down as I remember them.

Personal updates

To keep this post short and avoid a lengthy essay, I will try to use bullet points this time. In summary, last month can be described using two words: death and endings.

  • DEATH?!?! I watched Infinity War on its second week, and no amount of both spoiler-y and no-context memes prepared me for what happened. I mean, I was ready for the death of a character who was very much alive in the end. SMH.
  • ALMOST DEATH. On the morning of the 11th, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, my reason for living, was pronounced dead. I grieved along with everyone on Twitter. Then the heavens heard our prayers and resurrected the show.
  • ENDINGS. The series finale of Once Upon A Time aired last month. I didn’t know that the current season is the last but, yeah, there goes one of the shows I’m following. Other TV shows such as Agents of SHIELD, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Silicon Valley, and (my love) Brooklyn Nine-nine also ended their current seasons. That’s pretty much all the shows I’m watching so I’m left with nothing else to watch. The Agents of SHIELD finale broke my heart ten times more than Infinity War did, by the way.
  • NEW BLOG LOGO! I won a blog logo giveaway on Twitter, which is one of the few good things that happened last month. The giveaway was hosted by the lovely Sadie B. (@HogwartsGrad_7) who blogs here. You can view the said logo on my sidebar! You should give Sadie a follow. She’s very friendly and still runs a logo giveaway from time to time.

Love. Obsession. Jealousy. Murder.

No one knows what happened to pop icon Eric Thorn. His Twitter account? Frozen. His cell phone? Cracked and bloody, buried in the snow.

Agoraphobic fangirl Tessa Hart knows the truth, but she’s finally left her #EricThornObsessed days behind. She has no intention of ever touching her Twitter app again. But Snapchat… That’s safer, right?

After months of living under the radar, Tessa emerges from hiding, forced to face the deadly consequences of her past. But in the interrogation room, answers only lead to more questions in the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Follow Me Back duology.
