Six of Crows Dating Profiles

I’ve been doing some brainstorming for some blog post ideas when I started thinking about what it would be like if fictional characters lived in the real world. Then I thought about my fangirling tendencies of shipping characters together.

I love shipping my OTPs and in real life that would mean dating. What better way to do that than online? I’ve never done online dating, but I can get a good idea of what people’s profiles look like. I just took the basic idea and put together a profile for each member of the Dregs in the Six of Crows series. I know that most of these characters already have a romantic partner, but I’d like to think they’d meet online if they were real.

(Notice: I know most of these characters are just teens, so think of these profiles as a part of a website meant for teenagers rather than adults.)

(Another notice: The artwork I used in this post aren’t mine. I made sure to link the artists’ websites to the picture as well as link it towards the bottom of this post.)

2016 Fall Book Haul

I got a lot more books that I expected to this season. My TBR pile is a mile high and I’m in a reading slump. That hasn’t stopped me from getting more books, though. I honestly have no self-control when it comes to books.

Dream Author Panel

Everyone booklover has their dream author panel containing their favorite authors. I am no exception. To be completely honest, I spend 50% of the time I’m awake daydreaming, and the majority of those dreams are about meeting my favorite authors.

Everbrite has this ongoing project that help people find events that they may be interested in, including things like author panels and book signings. When they talked about building your own dream author panel, I had to make one of my own. You can check out their website at https://www.eventbrite.com/l/conferences/.

What the what!?! It’s already September? Am I the only one surprised?

Anyway, a new month means new book releases. Here are my anticipated releases of September. I’m especially excited for a certain book from a certain series from a certain author that I talk a lot about on this blog (*cough cough* Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas is going to be released soon and I’m figuratively peeing my pants while waiting.)

(All the synopsis are from Goodreads.)

The knowledge that they might never see each other again, that some of them–maybe all of them–might not survive this night hung heavy in the air. A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.

Series I’m Not Going to Finish

I don’t like leaving things unresolved. This includes series. I hate not finishing a series. Unless I don’t really give a crap about any part of the story, then to some degree, I want to know how the conflict in the story was resolved.

However, there are some series I won’t be finishing. The reason might be that I don’t care for the story, or that it’s not at the top of my TBR and will probably never get to it. I’m still open to finishing some of these series, but I’ll most likely not get to them.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of the series I’m not going to finish, but the main ones.
