Another two weeks gone by. Another post in which I have nothing exciting to report.
But I did finally do something productive! There was a tweet going around at one point about how we all have a hard drive that just has a bunch of copies of nested older hard drives. Well, I actually organized my hard drive! It’s not perfect, but I’ve deleted so many of the files that were just multiples, I’ve got all the documents into actual named folders/subfolders (instead of just scattered everywhere), and I’ve started sorting through the pictures. I feel so accomplished!
I’m bummed though because I finally installed The Sims 3 onto my new, better computer (so that I wouldn’t have to switch computers every time I want to play), but the game is lagging so much in one of my favorite worlds that it’s not even playable. WHY. I swear I 100% truly believe there I have an electronics curse. But the other worlds I’ve tested are working better, so I guess all is not lost. I’ll just have to switch computers if I want to play in that one world, I guess.
I won another giveaway! I’m on a roll, guys. Things are kinda tough for me right now, so winning some books has been a nice pick-me-up (and they’ll provide a nice distraction while reading them). Teeth is what I chose for winning the Discussion Challenge giveaway for May!
Books I Received for Review:
7/15/18: Keeper of the Bees is from NetGalley. I also applied to be in a blog tour for this book because I didn’t see the blog tour sign-ups until after I applied on NG, and the blog tour is offering the first book (Black Bird of the Gallows) for review too, so I guess we’ll see what happens lol.
Books I Finished:
I haven’t been getting a whole lot of reading done. I’ve started giving myself daily reading goals though (e.g. 20% of my ebook), and it’s helping because I do want to read, I just keep not reading for some reason.
7/8/18: I enjoyed Rebel of the Sands, but I’m not sure I liked it enough to spend the time and money required to continue. Twice Bitten didn’t work for me, unfortunately.
7/15/18: The City of Brass was great! I already posted my review, so you can find that linked below.
What I’m Loving:
This week, what I’m loving is…
Monster Prom (Again)
I know, I’ve talked about this one before AND reviewed it, but it’s still growing on me. They added a new special ending even! And a gallery with pictures! And the monsters have temporary summer outfits! And there’s still so much I haven’t seen yet! And I love all the fan art online. I even ended up reading a 4000-word fanfic XD
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed The Last Sun by K. D. Edwards, an incredibly unique urban fantasy with lovable characters.
– I recommended 5 diverse sci-fi/fantasy books set in the US.
– I reviewed Space Unicorn Blues by T.J. Berry, an inclusive space adventure.
– I did the Book Blogging Firsts Tag and talked about my first post, my first review copy, and other various things.
– I reviewed What Fate Portends by Clara Coulson, the first in a new post-apoc, fae-filled urban fantasy series.
– I reviewed The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty, a book with complex characters and world-building + djinn.
