Be a Contributor at RockStarlit BookAsylum!

Changes are already afoot, the blog will be moving soon to another server. Hopefully it'll go smoothly, and I'm really excited to show it off! But until we wait, why wouldn't you give a go at being a contributor at the Asylum? If you ever wondered what happens in the staff room and how we keep our tenants alive, then this is your chance to get a peek behind the scenes! I hear you asking what would that entail, so here you go:

2 Years in the Asylum

The good thing about anniversaries is that they roll around every year. And thus, here we are, celebrating the 2nd birthday of my baby blog. Or is it toddler now? The second year wasn't less eventful than the first one, even though 2019 was one of my worst years personally. As last year, I'd like to take a look back at this past year and highlight some milestones and memories including a lot of pictures.

Tales of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

This review ended up to be quite long, so let me just wrap it up. I've been really impressed by the quality of the content in Tales of Ioth. Don't get me wrong, Woolliscroft presented exactly what I expected of him and then some more. These stories not only give us a better picture of the characters we already know, but also we get to know Alfaria and the Alfjarun culture a bit more. If you like the Wildfire Cycle, then you definitely shouldn't miss Tales of Ioth and all these brilliant adventures.

Exile by Martin Owton

This was a nice comfortable fantasy read that entertains without being too predictable. It's worth checking out if you are looking for something on the noble bright edge of the genre.

Camelot by Giles Kristian

Overall, I have mixed feelings about Camelot. There were aspects I enjoyed but I also felt underwhelmed at the end. Lancelot definitely put the bar high and I don't think Camelot was able to live up to it. Even so, if you enjoyed Lancelot, I don't see why you shouldn't also read Camelot. It has some nice - if a bit predictable - twists, battles, backstabbing, drama. Underneath it all, Camelot is the story about dreams, about unyielding loyalty and the notion that you never should give up.

The Chosen by Jakob Tanner

This was really fast-paced, it’s entertaining and the POV character, Clay has a likeable voice which makes him easy to root for. I enjoyed how fun it was and all the nice touches that made it feel like an actual game.

SPFBO 5 – The Conclusion

In this post the team looks back on SPFBO 5 sharing our experiences and we'll also point out a couple of books we enjoyed and you might have missed in the sea of other great books! At the end of the post, you'll find Amazon links to each book mentioned in this post. We hope you'll check them out!

What’s to come? – May 2020

May is here! And you know what does that mean? It's Wyrd & Wonder month! We celebrate fantasy throughout May. It's not too late to join in all the fun. You can find the introduction here. Be sure to check it out becuase these ladies planned a LOT of awesome stuff.

As usual, I have all kinds of things planned for this month as well, though not all of them fantasy related. But I'll try my best. Who knows? I might even do some fun posts using their Wyrd & Wonder challenge prompts! Alright, let's see what I have in mind.

Monthly Wrap Up: April 2020

Is it just me, or April really went by fast? It definitely seemed shorter than March. Weird. I definitely had more good days this month, so that's a plus. I also worked on some secret stuff, which was fun. In an "OMG, what the hell am I doing?" way, lol. I also discovered The Unbelievable Truth series on Audible, and since I'm starting my days with audiobooks, I figured listening to something that makes me laugh would actually do some good for me. I'm only 2 days in, but so far it seems to be working. *shrug*

Does Disability Define Me?

This post was originally labelled as A Week in My Head post, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it probably should be published on its own accord. Disability is a topic that we should talk about, because it has many forms and each case is as individual as we ourselves are. So, I decided to repost this article and add a few more thoughts.
