Why you should read The Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix:
- zombie-slaying necromancer-soldier-priestess teenage girl protagonists
Also, there’s going to be a fourth one coming out in October!
Yes! So pumped! A celebratory re-read is definitely in order.
It is going to be a prequel and I am so excited!

Cover Love #3 | Dubliners by James Joyce
Editions (from top to bottom): 1 & 2.
I love Penguin Classics! The first cover is my favourite.. it looks so magical :).
Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result! I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.
Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.
To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).
JANE AUSTEN VINTAGE CLASSICS
Jane Austen’s novels maintain a universally enduring appeal right up to this day and are loved both in print and as film and TV adaptations.
The aim for this updated set was to create a desirable look that would convey a modern and brave take on Austen’s traditional tales of love, family and status within society.
The illustrator of the series Leanne Shapton had this to say about her style:
"The nice thing about patterns is that they can evoke a certain mood or tone, but also be neutral. I loved creating a consistent handwritten label style for the six books and then thinking of which patterns might obliquely suit the titles. I think the patterns we chose quietly compliment and correspond to the stories. My favorite is Mansfield Park."
The full set comprising of Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility are published this week.
