Cake (A poem)

by Kym Payne (2020)

I made cake

I ate too much cake

Now I have, a stomach ache

Never again

Shall I eat

Lots of cake


Until the next time, I decide, to make cake.

ADHD and me – book review

Disclaimer: I received an eBook copy of this book for review. It has not effected my review or opinions.

Most children with ADHD are misunderstood. – I know this personally, because I was one of them.

It is the same for eight year old Malory, who discusses her ADHD through her own eyes. She discusses her differences to the other children she mixes with at school, and some of the problems she has. She discusses how her mother reminds her just how unique she is, and shows us the positives of having ADHD.

ADHD and me is a brilliant, and informative book on ADHD for children. What makes it so great is the empathy that the author has, discussing the self-esteem issues and feelings that many children with ADHD may experience. – and it’s all told from the perspective of a child.

The Pronoun Book

Disclaimer: I received an eBook copy of this book to review.

Release Date: October 2021

The Pronoun Book, is a brightly coloured and informative book aimed for children. Although if you are an adult that finds pronouns confusing, you may also find this book helpful.

The illustrations are what grabbed my attention to this book first. The are incredibly diverse, featuring people of all sizes, shapes, races and nationalities.

It starts off with the basics, explaining Male and Female pronouns, and then goes on further using terms such cis, non-binary and transgenger.

The Pronoun Book, is written in an easy way for children (and adults) to understand, and at the end of the book even includes letter templates for parents to use when discussing Pronouns with family/friends and for their child’s school.

As someone that works with children and is very familiar with children’s books, I can highly recommend!


If you are in the U.K and would like to purchase a copy on this book. Please consider purchasing from QUEERLIT.CO.UK I am not affiliated with them. – I just love them.

Morning (a poem)


Kym Payne, 2021

Tomorrow, I’m not ready yet

It still feels to early, not time for bed

I don’t want to shower

Or brush my teeth 

I’m not ready to go to bed and sleep

The anxiety is brewing 

I don’t want the morning 

I want to stay here, in comfort 

Thinking about tomorrow, makes my brain hurt

I don’t want the week ahead, with the early dull mornings 

I don’t want to go to work, and eat breakfast yawning 

I want to stay at home and create

Go to bed late

Not get up and go to work

I know you can relate

The Strangeworlds Travel Agency

This blog post was originally going to be a video, now that I’ve decided to join BookTube. However I’ve been full of cold this week, and super busy. I’m actually typing this out on the bus.

I’ll tell you this.

If you don’t read this book, share it with your offspring and others, you are truly missing out on something VERY magical.

Flick Hudson is twelve years old. She is the eldest sibling, and we very quickly notice that she isn’t 100% happy at home. – Although her parents treat her well physically, you do get the sense that perhaps all of her emotional needs aren’t being met. I won’t say anymore, I’m keeping this review spoiler free.

Flick’s family move to a village, that village is where Flick meets Jonathan Mercator and is introduced to The Strangeworlds Travel Agency and the ability to travel to New world through suitcases.

But of course! There is trouble brewing, things aren’t going well and it’s down to Flick to help fix things! This book is 100% the most enjoyable magical adventure that I have been on in a while. When Stephen King said that books are portable magic, this is EXACTLY what he meant.

No Big Deal

No Big Deal – Bethany Rutter

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like being a fat chick. (It’s okay to use the word fat, it even says so in this book) then this book is for you.

Rutter writes about Emily, an intelligent overweight girl and her love interest Joe. We see the struggles and stigma that Emily goes through with being the size that she is. – (If you are on the smaller side and fatphobic you should also read this book) We witness her mother trying to force her into weight loss groups, and onto faddy unhealthy diets, but we also witness friendship, love, broken hearts. – and girl power, with strong girls sticking up for themselves.

A fantastic read. 4/5

The Harmony Tarot

I’ve been a big fan of Harmony Nice for a few years now. I absolutely love Harmony. Her videos always make me feel so inspired and good about myself. She inspired me to go on my own journey of self discovery, and it has been amazing.

I’ve eagerly been waiting for this deck release, and it hasn’t disappointed. The art style is absolutely gorgeous, and the guidebook itself gives a detailed description of each card and it’s meaning, along with a back story on Harmony.

I urge everyone interested in tarot to give this deck a try, and Harmony’s book Wicca is also worth a read.
