The Weekly Update: 6/25/17

Let's see, what did I do this week... I rented some movies! I rarely watch movies, but it seemed like a good way to rest my arms. I watched Captain Fantastic because I thought it would be fun, quirky, and touching, I got a Little Miss Sunshine vibe from the cover, but boy was I wrong. I nearly cried like six times. I was heavy and unsettling in some ways and emotional but touching in the end....

Bookish Musings: Consistency in Series Book Titles

The other week I talked about consistency in series book covers, but what I didn't mention in that post was book titles. And just like I love when covers are matchy and consistent, I love when titles are matchy and consistent too! I would never avoid or dislike a series just for having titles that don't relate, and in most cases it doesn't truly bother me, but it makes me extra happy when the...

The Weekly Update: 6/18/17

So... the acupuncture did not go well. It hurt (not terrible, but like getting blood drawn), and I spent the entire appointment, plus the whole rest of the day, freaking out because needles. Maybe acupuncture just isn't for me period, but I also didn't like the practitioner. I felt like she didn't listen to me, and she didn't take my fear seriously at all; she just started stabbing needles all...

The Weekly Update: 6/11/17

I feel like my blog used to be a much more fun place, whereas now it seems like it's been all book reviews and unhappy weekly updates :-/ It's just that my tennis elbow has been really bad. Even reading hurts because I have to hold a book or kindle and flip the pages. I don't want to give up blogging because it makes me happy, but I may have to take a break for a while. Or only post once a...
