I am so excited to be back with a brand new look thanks to Nihaad from Read and Seek, and Polished Pages. She really did a brilliant job capturing a look and feel that is authentic to who I am and what Under the Midnight Sky stands for. I absolutely love the new look and hope that everyone else will be too. Please let me know what you think of the new look in the comments or on Instagram.
So, along with the new look I’ve also decided to change things up a bit on the blog. When I initially started this blog way back in 2015 I intended to use this space to post creative writing, thus, encourage myself and like-minded people to write more and finish the projects they start. I wanted to engage with the online writing community. However, the blog became a beast of its own, with a greater focus on books and reviews. I plan on slowly introducing creative writing to the site again. It will most likely start off as weekly updates regarding my current projects which you’ll find under the Creative Writing and Midnight Musings categories.
You might have also noticed that there are 3 regular guest bloggers. Allow me to formally introduce them.
About Nawaal:I’m a 29 year old learning and development specialist. As a mom, my love for words come second to my family, with photography taking a very close third. When I’m not singing along to Moana and Frozen, I’m reigniting my love for the arts, be it film or the written word. I am a rambler, so my little tangents should be forgiven.

A copywriter by day, an avid reader (and serial series watcher – jeez, try saying that 5 times) – by night, my library is filled with books of the YA kind, plenty of which fall under contemporary, fantasy, a few historical operas and the like. The occasional New Adult, perhaps. Not a fan of picking favourites – if I’m hooked by the synopsis, then I’m willing to read pretty much anything. That’s all, folks. You can read her review of Flame in the Mist here.
I’m 24 and a misanthropic writer (aren’t they always?). By day I work as an education researcher while I do my PhD. In my private world I love sci-fi, steampunk and a healthy dose of the macabre. I definitely know way too much about committing the perfect crime. Check out The Kindling Khepri for more of Tarryn’s creative writing. You can also read her review of Artichoke Hearts here.
I’ll be hosting a giveaway over here and on Instagram to celebrate the new look and the relaunch. This will most likely happen on the 16th – 25th October. Still trying to figure of the logistics for the giveaway.
That’s all for now! Don’t forget to share the love on social media and let me know what you think of the new look.
