Hi There!

I’m Kate, and welcome to my little corner of the internet, Blogging with Dragons. I love reading, gaming, knitting, watching K-dramas and anime, and pretty much all things geeky. When not curled up into a cocoon reading or gaming, I hang out with my two dogs and my partner of over ten years, Eric, whom I met by chance on a little game called White Knight Chronicles. Eric would later go on to design and draw my original logo, Kelvin the dragon, for this blog.

Reading and gaming had always been a massive part of my life, but became absolutely indispensable when I was diagnosed with lupus, fibromyalgia, and multiple other pesky sidekick chronic illnesses. When these conditions got in the way of completing my English degree, I started my blog to recapture the magic of in-class discussions and to help other people find books and other geeky things that they’d love (and hopefully talk to me about).


Personally, I adore anything with strong female characters and disability representation. I mainly read and review science fiction and fantasy novels, but I also dabble in romance, horror, historical fiction, and anything else that catches my eye. My favorite types of video games are by far RPGs, but I got my start on the NES (yes, I’m that old) and play a little bit of everything on both consoles and on PC.
