in Fiction by

Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s time to finally decide on a costume. We’ve been rolling around ideas for weeks, but still haven’t been able to land on the perfect choice. Not only do we want something clever and fun, but we also want to show off our feminist side by going as a strong female character who inspires and empowers us.

A wise Bookish Diva might have said (or screamed) that she has no words for what is happening on Game of Thrones and neither did George because he didn’t write them.  It has been days since the most recent episode of Game of Thrones aired. However, I am no Spoiler Sue. All you will get here is a fan’s frustrations, hopes, dreams and nightmares. For those that have…
