Anna Tan grew up in Malaysia, the country that is not Singapore. In 2015, she traded in a life of annoying other bean counters for one of annoying the online world with questions about life and death and everything in between. The answer is sometimes 42. Sometimes they try to eat you.

When she is not writing or nitpicking over other writers' copy, she can be found reading a book or attempting to organise her room.

#musicmonday: Take Over | Shane & Shane



Thirsty, I'm thirsty for you
In a dry land with no drink, I need you
I know you made a home, inside this heart of stone
So turn it into flesh, Spirit, soften it
I give you all I have, I'm holding nothing back
Jesus, I am yours Jesus, I am yours

Take over, Lover of my Soul
Take control
I surrender, there's nothing I want more
Than to know you, Lord
What am I supposed to do with all my kingdoms next to you... Read more of this blog post »

It's dense with a lot of information, DNF mostly because I had to return it to the library. lol.

But also because I've finished the assignment I borrowed it for and a lot of the stuff it covers I've already read in other books.

Very nice insight into why Levana is the way that she is.
I like villain backstories, and this one gives you an understanding of why she turned out the way she did without ever justifying her evilness. Because she is still evil. You just get to sympat
