“My gorgeous perfect daughter and the thing I married”

That would be the title of this pic in Jessie had an instagram or twitter.

Attending to recurrent request of many of you guys, now is HC that James’ Mime Jr. will grow to get super attached to Gina, and will very likely become her first pokemon once she goes on a journey.

Enjoy these cuties ♥

Witch Tip: If jobs and other things allow, dye your hair a colour you feel represents a long-term goal! As you’re waiting for the colour to set, visualise your intent as the dye. Imagine your hair soaking up that goal.
Wanna save up some money? Try out a green! Need to get more practice in your craft? Purples and blues are your friends! General happiness? Try pink on for size!
Every time you wash your hair you’re charging it and empowering it to help you do what your intent was! Doesn’t that sound cool? You get cool hair AND a little magic to go with.

I was going to draw who my fav duo is, which is obviously maxwell and wes, I don’t know why but I really love the idea of wes being a HUGE ass face towards people he hates, or people who wronged him. ,,, but then it became a wes fest! He’s very simple to draw and very CUTE!

Goodreads rating: 4.19

What do I need to do to make everyone read this series? Sacrifices? Buy you all drinks on me? Howl at the moon? Because I’ll do it. In a heartbeat. This series is so good. IT’S SO GOOD, YOU GUYS. It’s become my favourite series of the year so far and I am so excited for the next book to come out in 2016. Because I need it. I need it now. I need it with a passion.

The Mime Order picks up right where The Bone Season left off and it’s even better than its predecessor. Samantha Shannon has come into her own as a writer and it tells, because the writing is absolutely fantastic. It courses effortlessly, it’s poetic, melodic and it made me not want to put this book down. With the reader being comfortable in this world, knowing all the nooks and crannies, Samantha can instead focus on the characters, on extending the plot and the world she has built. And oh gosh, do things get intense! I literally held my breath every page in the final quarter of the book. It’s fast paced, it’s action-packed and energetic. 

The originality of the series, what makes it stand out, is there in every page: we get to understand more about clairvoyants and their powers. But at the same time, we’re introduced to a very cunning and powerful game of politics. This adds a second layer to the fantasy element and it’s fascinating to read about it. I love books that have political elements in them and that have you guessing throughout reading the story. Combine this with amazing characters and you have the recipe that drew me so much into this story.

I don’t want to get too much into the plot, because I want people who haven’t gotten into the series yet to be able to read this review and maybe consider picking these books up. Because I want to see more people blogging about them and talking about them. They have a compelling plot and a mixture of fantasy and dystopian elements that proves extraordinary. READ THEM. And then come cry and fangirl with me that there are 5 more books planned and we have none of them in our hands right now.

Favourite quotes:

“Words are everything. Words give wings even to those who have been stamped upon, broken beyond all hope of repair.”

“You can never want too much. That’s how they silence us,” I said. “They told us we were lucky to be in the penal colony instead of the æther. Lucky to be murdered with NiteKind, not the noose. Lucky to be alive, even if we weren’t free. They told us to stop wanting more than what they gave us, because what they gave us was more than we deserved.” I picked up my jacket. “You’re not a prisoner any more, Arcturus.” Warden looked at me in silence. I left him in that ruined hall with the music echoing above him.”

“Hope is the lifeblood of revolution. Without it, we are nothing but ash, waiting for the wind to take us.”


To everyone who got this far, thank you for reading and have a wonderful day! Also, feel free to share your thoughts, comment or tell me anything :)

Buy it from the Book Depository :)



As previously discussed, exposing a human being to a clown patch and the Mime’s striped liquid simultaneously may result in a Skomorph, a being with qualities of both a Space Clown and an Outer Mime, to varying degrees.

Figure A can create small invisible boxes like an Outer Mime, but unlike one it can speak, but only in words that rhyme.

Figure B, excluding snarling and roaring, can only hum, mostly to the tune of ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ and a few select songs from the opera ‘Carmen’. Also it’s shadow can hurt you.
