Another two weeks has gone by, and I still have no real life news (well, no good or exciting news anyway).
But hey, it’s July! That’s something, right?
Ugh. Ok, I’m just gonna end this terrible intro. Go forth and check out the bookish stuff!
I mentioned in my last post that I won some giveaways and had some ARCs coming my way, and some of them arrived! I won Nyxia in a Goodreads giveaway, I won The Last Werewolf in a giveaway from Fantasy Literature, and The Last Sun is from Pyr! My review for The Last Sun goes up tomorrow—you should check it out because the book was amazing! Also I’m not going to have a good day tomorrow, so comments would cheer me up :-)
I also adjusted things so that books on my Books with Disability list will show up in the search on my blog now! And so they fit in with the other posts on the results page. Here’s an example of how it looks. I feel like most of my fellow book bloggers don’t do a lot of coding, but I just love the feeling of having a challenge every time I set out to do something new, the creativity that it sometimes takes to figure out how to make it happen, and then the feeling of accomplishment when I actually do it.
One more thing, if you link to your Amazon profile anywhere, you should check the link because I think they changed the URLs.
Books I Received for Review:
6/24/17: Wanting the Wolfman, Incubus Honeymoon, and Twice Bitten are from Dreamspinner. The Last Sun is from Pyr.
7/1/18: What Fate Portends is from the author.
Books I Finished:
6/24/17: Space Unicorn Blues was not bad, but it ended up being not quite right for me. Wanting the Wolfman was an enjoyable light PNR with great disability rep.
7/1/18: What Fate Portends was a good start to a new urban fantasy series. The Last Sun was amazing! Spinning Silk didn’t have as much of the supernatural element as I’d wanted it to.
What I’m Loving:
This week, what I’m loving is…
Zumbo’s Just Desserts
I started watching this show on Netflix. It’s a baking show, but it’s like a Willy Wonka reality show. Everything is so colorful and unique! The editing annoys me because of how they hardly even show some of the desserts, but it’s a fun show.
Yes, literally just pickles. I went years without pickles, partly because of health reasons, partly because I kinda forgot about them after a while, and partly because it just never really occurred to me that, as an adult doing my own grocery shopping, I could go out to the store and buy a jar of pickles whenever I damn well pleased. It was like I thought pickles just spawned at Fuddruckers and sub shops. Has that ever happened to you? There are some foods I spent my whole life being so excited to eat on the few special occasions I got them that it took a long time to occur to me that I could just go buy them myself once I was an adult. Anyway, pickles are delicious (even though I think they contribute to my headaches too and I can only eat like one pickle spear every so often).
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed Fred, the Vampire Accountant by Drew Hayes, a sweet, humorous, unique vampire book.
– I reviewed Monster Prom by Beautiful Glitch, a fun, silly interactive game about getting a date at a monster-filled high school.
– I shared black, white, and yellow book covers.
– I reviewed Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones, a gritty werewolf book with touching family relationships.
– I talked about discussing sex scenes in book reviews.
– I reviewed Wanting the Wolfman by Louise Collins, a light M/M PNR with great disability rep.
