I’m gonna make this short because chronic illness, tennis elbow, and stress have me not sure if I’m really feeling up to making the Sunday Post rounds, but I’m trying to stick to my every-other-week posting schedule for these.
Anyway, basically all that happened in the past two weeks was that I was hit on by someone with a foot fetish on Twitter when I posted about needing new slippers, I finally succeeded at making teriyaki roasted veggies, I cut my hair, and I made a thing in Photoshop based on a photo of Matthew (my sim):
It’s far from perfect, it’s really simplistic, and I’m still working on it, but it basically killed my arms to do this even this much, so I wanted to share it anyway.
Yep, that’s about it! Onto the bookish stuff.
I won a giveaway! Thank you to Tammy @ Books Bones & Buffy and author Brad Abraham for my signed copy of Magicians Impossible!
Books I Received for Review:
11/5/17: Lovesick Gods is from Enchanted Book Promotion. The Consumption of Magic is from Dreamspinner.
Books I Finished:
11/5/17: Well, I was disappointed by another book that I had been anticipating for years :-/ I finished my reread of the Deadly Dreams series and read the final book. I thought the complex characters and emotion/intensity that was building up in the previous books would make up for all the issues I had, but the final one didn’t seem to have much emotion or intensity at all, and I still have a bunch of unanswered questions from throughout the series, plus some things just got really strange all the sudden. I was planning on reviewing the books, but now I don’t think I will because I’m not even sure how I feel.
11/12/17: Smoke City was super character focused, and I really enjoyed it!
What I’m Loving:
This week, what I’m loving is…
This video isn’t from their channel, but the song is beautiful, and watching him play and get so into it amazing! I’ve never been musically inclined, I can’t sing or play any instruments, but I’ve always thought violin was beautiful.
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed Black Box Inc. by Jake Bible, a banter-filled urban fantasy.
– I talked about how I want more books about disability and medical needs in post-apoc worlds.
