As you may have noticed, I disappeared for a while. Scarpered off , took a break, reassessed the whole “do I need to run a multi reviewer blog that’s not a job but feels like one” slog. Hung out a sign that said gone fishing, back soon and tip toed away.
Wasn’t back soon, even soonish. Thing called a pandemic intervened. I then Went full on gamer 24/7 but that’s another story.
Then found the world of C and K-drama! Ok, why did no one ever tell me about the ability of K-dramas to rip the heart right out of you from the first episode. And alternatively make you fall on the ground howling, holding your sides because you’re watching one of their melos aka melodramas where a woman playing a grandma literally spends episodes doing nothing but rolling her eyes around laying in a bed. Godamnit I’m choking. More on that later.
But eventually all things lead me back to my iPad, ebooks, and reviews. I just can’t help myself. I’m just fucking opinionated.
First a tiny one. Then a tad larger. If you haven’t read the Magic Emporium series of 12 books, do so now! They are from various authors and fabulous.
Magic Emporium (12 books)Kindle Edition
From Book 1:
Theodore Knight has a curious nature. Ever since he was a child, he’s loved books that are full of danger and adventure. In real life, he’s a simple bookstore owner. But in his imagination, he’s a hero who goes on great quests to save the princess, or in his case, the prince, from evil dragons.
Until one day, real life starts to look a lot like his imaginary world. . . and the fate of an entire kingdom rests on his shoulders. The world is more magical than he ever thought, and he will have to learn to accept the impossible as possible, if he and Samuel are to succeed.
Samuel Day had never journeyed to the human realm, and he sure didn’t mean to get stuck there. That said, he’s found it all incredibly fascinating. Especially Theodore, the adorable human who holds a piece of the puzzle necessary to stop an evil immortal and save the magic realm known as Evorea. His loyalty is to his king, but it doesn’t take long for Theodore to become equally important.
They come from different realms and are as different as night and day, but together they have everything they need to save Evorea from ruin. They just have to find their way back there.
Knight and Day is part of the Magic Emporium Series. Each book stands alone, but each one features an appearance by Marden’s Magic Emporium, a shop that can appear anywhere, but only once and only when someone’s in dire need. This book contains a magic realm, a handsome guardian, one clueless human, and a guaranteed HEA.Read more
So there’s that.
But as I said, along with discovering K-drama, I found that recently there’s been some just lovely, by that I mean sweet and romantic, gay Korean romance series and movies that 😱 end very happily for our gay couples. Usually that is saved for Thai BL stories. But nope, South Korea is coming on strong and it’s wonderful and worth reviewing. As I will here.
So timing. Probably irregular to start while I figure things out. Maybe a new format as it’s just me now. But let’s have fun. I’ll ramble on, throwing my scattered thoughts out there for anyone to read.
Chime in if you’re still around. Let me know if books kept you sane through the Pandemic, what you’re watching, what’s new !
Oh! And Happy Pride Month!
Now I believe I have a new chapter and episodes calling my name…..
