The Secret Circle - Diana Adam Cassie

Magic for Humans: Spain + Master of Poisons by Andrea Hairston

Magic for Humans: Spain was great. It's about magic tricks, not fantasy magic, but either the show uses a lot of special effects or the guy has actual powers. lol

I haven't seen the 3 seasons in English, but now I'm interested. This one was to practise my Spanish.

Episode 4 was about love and there were several same-gender couples and mentions of polyamory. :-)


In Master of Poisons by Andrea Hairston, Djola must find a cure to poison desert.

It's a fantasy novel, but it has cli-fi vibes, like The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco.

The writing style is beautiful, but hard to follow if you're not a native English speaker, so I ended up bored most of the time.

Non-binary people are called vesons (vie/vie). Content warning: [Spoiler]There's a minor nb/nb pairing, but they both die. >_>
