I have great news! Not one, but two of my short stories are out this month! After over a year of having absolutely nothing accepted by literally anyone in 2020 (okay, so I did have two things published—my novella, Evie and the Pack-Horse Librarians and my debut novel, That Distant Dream, but those were both … Continue reading Writing Update: Two New Short Stories Out Now!
Hey all! It's been almost a week since I've posted any reviews (and longer since I've written any, thanks to prescheduled posts), and while not many folks read my stuff I wanted to give a quick update. My mental and physical health has not been great this past month, what with work being delightfully shitty, … Continue reading Update
I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog! Okay, technically I published the website in April and had a random post of "I'm here!" or something, but my first review was a year ago today. The Luminous Dead And this will be my 195th post, which is...quite a lot more than … Continue reading One Year Blogiversary!
Hey all, Long time no posts. My family and I are safe (for now), but the past couple of weeks have been brutal, as I'm sure many of you are experiencing as well. The library where I work didn't close to the public until Saturday, and last week I had to deal with the frustrations … Continue reading A Non-Update Update
I hit 100 followers on this blog! Seriously, thank you all for following me and reading my rambly, rambly book reviews that have a lot of words and make absolutely no sense whatsoever. I'd like to start talking more about my writing—in addition to my reading—but first I need to actually get started writing some … Continue reading Goodreads Challenges & Blog Milestones
It's October already. This year has flown by. Anywho, this month I had planned an owned-books theme, but I think I'm going to just try and catch up on all my ARCs instead. There are so many! And I skipped over a lot of the September releases to focus on Sci Fi September. Oopsies. My … Continue reading October TBR
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Books on my fall TBR... Halluuuuuuuuuu from the other siiiiiiiiiiiiide … Continue reading Top 10 Tuesday: Fall TBR
Ah fall. Where pumpkin spice (ew) is in the air and so are the mosquitos, because those little bastards refuse to die. Spoiler: I am 90% mosquito bite right now, and probably have West Nile, Zika and whatever else those things give you. It's only a matter of time. Anywho. Yet again, I've read a … Continue reading Mid-Month Musings: September 2019
As much as I loved the bookish community, I feel that a lot of it is motivated by consumerism and how many physical books a person owns and how ~pretty~ their shelves are. I'll be the first to say that there is nothing bad about any of these things, but also that it's important to … Continue reading September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Oh dear. This is a hard one since I read … Continue reading Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside of My Comfort Zone
