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...

Bookish Musings: Do You Ever Save Books for Special Occasions?

Sorry to disappoint, but this post isn't going to be nearly as festive as it sounds. I'm not talking about saving books for Christmas or date night. I mean, ok, that could be a thing that you do, in which case it totally qualifies for this discussion, that still isn't quite what I had in mind when I came up with this post. No, I'm simply talking about any occasion or occurrence or reason in...

The Weekly Update: 6/4/17

So I created a new Sims household recently full of supernaturals---I had never played with supernaturals in TS3---and man, I should've done this sooner because this game is turning out to be so much fun. Like, I didn't even have a plan when I created it. Didn't know what jobs they'd have, what I wanted them to accomplish, etc., I just threw 'em all in a house together and was gonna see what...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Wolves

Wolves was a fantastic cover topic for me because you all know I like to stick to sci-fi/fantasy covers when possible, and guess what genre has LOTS of wolves in it? That's right, urban fantasy! All those werewolves and shifters and whatnot. And though I admittedly am not a big fan of reading wolf or shifter books, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the heck out of their gorgeous covers...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/28/17

I was all set to tell you all there had been no new disasters or incidents this past week, but then, Friday night, I tweeted a picture of me chillin' with my cat homie and said I'm gonna miss him when I move... and then like a minute later I think he got startled and attacked my arm -_- And my arm was in prime attacking position since I was rubbing his tummy. Thankfully none of the marks were...
