I still haven’t been feeling great. I still have eye strain. I still don’t know what, if anything in particular, is causing the recent issues. I’m stressed about a lot of health-related stuff right now. I don’t want to get into that. Sorry if I’m a little behind on responding to comments and visiting your blogs.
In better news, I went through all the shoes in my old closet—all the boxes way at the top that I thought were heels, which I haven’t had a reason to wear for years—and it turns out I have two pairs of boots I didn’t even know I owned! One of them is a second pair of black boots, the other is dark brown! My life isn’t very exciting, so this is exciting for me.
That’s pretty much it for my week.
I won an ebook! Beauty and the Vampire by Zoey Hunter.
Books I Received for Review:
3/4/18: A Wish Upon the Stars is from Dreamspinner. The Raging Ones and Hell Divers III are from NetGalley.
3/11/18: School for Psychics is from NetGalley.
Books I Finished:
3/4/18: Sleight didn’t have as much circus as I’d hoped it would, but it was still enjoyable. The Fangs of Freelance was the last book in the Fred series that’s currently out. I found it a bit on the slow side, but still good. And I continued my HP reread with Goblet of Fire.
3/11/18: A Wish Upon the Stars was another slow but mostly enjoyable one. As for Sip, I would’ve liked it more had I not listened to the audio, but I still wouldn’t have really liked it anyway. I also finished my HP reread. I’m going to have some discussion posts about the series soon! I… had some issues with Cursed Child. I think I will do a mini review or something for that one.
What I’m Loving:
This week, what I’m loving is…
I wasn’t even sure what a dating sim was, but you all know how I cannot resist uncommon fantasy creatures, so I decided to go for it and spend a couple bucks on this. It’s been fun so far! It’s kind of like a choose-your-own-adventure novel, but more technologically advanced. It’s also got great diversity and representation since one character is missing an arm, one is possibly missing an eye (though it might just be injured, I don’t know for sure), one is trans, and they’re all queer in some way since it’s a M/M dating sim. It’s fun if you’re looking for something a bit different. I actually totally failed the first time and didn’t end up dating anyone lol (I haven’t gotten around to trying again), but I still really liked all the thought that went into the orc lore and culture and whatnot.
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, the first in a YA dystopian series.
– I talked about why readers like characters who have done awful things, plus a bit of extra discussion about The Vampire Chronicles.
– I reviewed Shield of the Dragon by Megan Derr, a M/M urban fantasy with an interesting take on dragons.
– I did the Bookish M.A.S.H. Tag and ended up with a really weird book outcome.
– I reviewed Steal the Moon by Lexi Blake, an urban fantasy with hilarity, heists, and lovable characters.
– I talked about the struggles I’m having with audiobooks.
– I reviewed The King of Forever by Kirby Crow, a M/M high fantasy.
