Dream Crate: Strong Female Characters

OK so a couple of weeks ago, I found that Loot Crate was looking for people to make their own "Dream Crate." It is fair to say I freaked out at this email as I have been watching Loot Crate unboxings for a long time but have never got one of their crates so the fact that I could make my own is pretty amazing. If you don't know what Loot Crate is, it is a monthly subscription service which contains pop culture items based on a specific theme, you can find more information at lootcrate.com. The theme that I choose for my box is Strong Female Characters. So let's get started...


1. A Marvel Comics Pop Funko

Loot Crate normally have some kind of figure in their boxes so for mine I choose the 3 heroines of Spider-Gwen, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk. I thought that these would be a nice addition to the box because as all three of them can kick ass and I really enjoying reading the comics. 



2. A Star Wars based pin

So again like the Pop Funkos, loot crate normally include a pin in their boxes and I thought that it would be good to make this Star Wars themed. I did try to find a Rey pin on its own but this was as close as I came to finding one. But again Rey is just a good character.



3. This t-shirt

For this one, I just chose it because I liked the quote and also T-shirts are normally included in the Loot Crate box.


4. A Clockwork Princess Necklace

So regardless of the fact that I need a new one of these necklaces myself, I think that it is a nice necklace and Tessa is a pretty cool strong female character.


5. A Hunger Games based print

OK so this one is based on Katniss who is a pretty strong individual and this is just a really nice print and I am pretty sure that I will buy it for myself so...


6. Hermione Granger wand pen

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger Magical Wand Pen and Bookmark, Noble Collection
Again Hermione is a great character and I just liked the wand pen so it can be included in the Dream Crate. 


7. First issue of Paper Girls comic



Paper Girls #1


I really enjoy reading this comic and considering how young the girls are in the comic, they are pretty cool characters and it explores female friendship which is always a good thing. 

8. A Game of Thrones keyring

Although I am not a massive Game of Thrones as I haven't read the books or watched the TV series loads, while I was browsing Etsy, I discovered this keyring which is so nice. It is a quote by Arya Stark who I believe is a good character so...

OK, so that is my Dream Crate box. I have to admit that this box would probably not appeal to most people who buy Loot Crate but I feel as though it is a nice box and would probably be better for a YA book subscription service but I like it so...

What would you put in your Dream Crate box? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
