6/52 “Nursery Rhyme” - the king was in his counting house, counting out his money. The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey. The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes, when down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose.
I’ve been told by four individuals that this photo looks like a heavy metal album cover. If any metal bands would like to make this the cover of their album, I would consider it my life’s work done 🤘🏻 📷: @rene.hooft
It's yet another dreary, rainy Sunday. I've had an absolutely rotten day, and I decided to chase the blues away by playing some piano, and following that by pulling out one of my favorite books and chasing it down with numbing Irish whiskey.
I started reading this series by romance novelist Karen M. Moning on the recommendation of a friend. She insisted that this series was more of a fantasy epic full of vampires, dark faeries, and magical objects than a cheesy romance. I'm so glad I listened, because it's true. Sure, there's a bit of sensuality tossed in, but the fantasy element is much stronger. The tale is set in post apocalyptic Dublin, and it's absolutely captivating to follow Mac's dark adventures around the ravaged city as she tries to avenge her fallen sister while fighting the evil forces of the corrupt fae who've slipped into our world to destroy humankind. Trust me, if you pick up book one, you will be hooked.
