Hi there,

Otaku, Slytherin and fellow book addict here.
Used to cosplay at comic cons until a kid asked if he can take a picture with the "old lady".

Nice to meet you.Y'all disregard my author profile. I'm here to read and review books :)

Most of the books I review on goodreads are connected to the LGBTQ genre, but not all of them.
I enjoy reading all types of stories, but I prefer the dark ones more than the rest. I read HEA and HFN for comfort, but most of the time I like to get out of my comfort zone and go for the dark stuff. The darker they are, the more impact they have and the longer I remember them.
But there is one genre I enjoy more than all of them and that is Historical Fiction. The older the setting, the better. Then, my love goe

Thank you also to my friend Elena who has read the transl... Read more of this blog post »

rock by Anyta Sunday
"4.5 stars but the decision to round up was easy. I lurrrved this gorgeous coming-of-age story. Cooper’s narrative voice — melancholic and humorous, smart and stubborn — drew me into his story right away.

The gentle pacing of this one is more charac..." Read more of this review »
Jack Addison vs. Man-Ravishing Spider by K.A. Merikan
"3 Stars

An interesting premise with a whole lot of kink and horror, something I’m not surprised that this writing duo has created.

I’m intrigued though. There's definitely a lot of growing up and learning of life lessons ahead for our hero with the..." Read more of this review »

“I am here with you, boy,” she said softly. “Listen to my voice. Remember who I am. I am your Dominant. Your master and protector. I am your liberator and the bearer of your pain. Trust me, and give me your old pain. I will lift it away. Trust me to take away your past, and give you a future. Trust me to hold you tight as I take you away from your hell. I am everything you need. Stop fighting your nightmares yourself, and let me fight them for you.”
Xia Xia Lake, The Darkness of Our Wounds: Ciarán

“There are many kinds of love. There is the love one feels for his sire for breathing life into his bones. There is the love for brothers, and there is the love for friends. And then is the love that brings the heaviest of heartaches.”
Xia Xia Lake, Kogitsune
