Update: Life and Books (Sep 2019)

I'll start this post by getting the bad news out of the way. My face muscle/headache problem is still not better. I'm still waiting for a neurology appointment, but they're probably not going to find anything.

I figure that probably won't be much of an issue but wanted to mention it just...
 

Bookish Musings: I Want More Books about… Vampires without the Tropes & Cliches

Since I love vampire books, it makes sense that I do, in fact, enjoy some of the vampire tropes out there. If I didn't, I probably wouldn't be a fan. And some of my absolute favorite books are about pretty typical gorgeous, brooding vampires. So I'm not complaining that books with the tropes exist. But all tropes all the time can get repetitive and boring. That's why I also happen to love when...
