Why is it still sporadically reaching lows of 62 in May in a place where we don’t even get winter? And who thought 9 in the morning on a Saturday was a good time to feed a whole tree through a wood chipper right outside my window? These are the burning questions I have this week.
Other than that, I ain’t got no real life news. Doing lots of different things for my tennis elbow and trying to kinda rest it some, but it still hurts because I’m hopeless at resting injuries and keep using it too much anyway. That’s about it. I didn’t even play The Sims, so I can’t even talk about that lol. I’m so exciting, I know.
If any of you actually pay attention to categories for posts and/or the category that’s shown in each graphic, things might be confusing up in here for a while. It’s just that I changed/added/removed categories (again) and might be removing the category from post titles where it’s not necessary (still undecided), but I have TONS of graphics already created, and I’m not about to go change them. I’m also not gonna change the titles of all past posts. So the category shown in graphics or post titles might not match the actual category the post is in. The perfectionist in me wants to fix them all REAL badly, but the tennis elbow in me is like, “I will cut you.”
In other news, I’ve been in this kind of reading slump for the past few weeks and therefore struggled each time to figure out what to read next. I didn’t even find many review copies I was interested in for a while. But now, all the sudden, within the past two weeks, I’ve been bombarded with books. Five series I’m reading have come out with an ARC or release. Four of them were completely unexpected; I didn’t even know a new book would be coming out soon. Plus, for the Real Vampires books, I wanted to do a reread of the first two, so that meant two more books to read. I also got a couple other review copies because they sounded interesting. So now I’m kind of drowning in May/June releases lol.
Books I Received for Review:
The first was from the author, the second was from Curiosity Quills.
Books I Finished:
Organic was alright but didn’t live up to the first book for me. Though it could’ve just been this reading slumpish thing I’ve been in. The Real Vampires book was a reread in preparation for the final book.
Song of the Week:
No song or video this week.
Laugh of the Week:
I’m trying out a new thing! I love Pinterest and it is honestly the best place to go when I need a laugh. So I thought it might be fun to share a fun pin or two each week! Which makes it really weird that this is actually a tumblr thing I’m sharing lol. What happened was, I found it on Pinterest, but this one has the gifs, so… I feel bad for the people in the first two (hope they’re ok!), but the drawings are just too funny.
In Case You Missed It:
– I shared book covers featuring birds.
– I reviewed Children of the Moon by Laekan Zea Kemp, a YA urban fantasy with inconsistent paranormal aspects but fantastic character development.
– I reviewed Real Vampires Don’t Sparkle by Amy Fecteau, a hilarious but also intense M/M vampire book that defied some of the tropes.
– I reviewed Mariner’s Luck by Kirby Crow, a slow-paced, character-focused M/M high fantasy.
