Bookish News: More January/February 2019 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Releases (+ Kickstarter Opportunities) to Get Excited About

I do a second post for each set of months when I do these upcoming releases posts because there are always books I miss in the first one. Surprisingly, this time there are only three! Are there just not as many books published in January and February? Maybe it's just coincidence that there aren't that many books I'm interested in? Since three books made for a very short post, so I decided to...
 

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2019) + I Made Art!

This is my first update post of the new year, and as you can probably tell, I've committed to just doing these as monthly wrap-up posts since that's basically what I've been doing anyway. I have no news about the dentist since I had a CT scan in December, and it took my current dentist four whole weeks, despite my multiple phone calls, to talk to the endodontist about the results before I was...

Book Recs: 10 Books about Characters with Unique Hobbies/Passions

I love reading about characters who have a hobby or something they're passionate about, especially when it makes a big appearance in the book. Usually these are things I don't know much about, so they're really interesting to me. And of course they add another layer to the character and help me understand them more. That's why I've compiled a list of ten books I've read about characters who...

Gaming News: Upcoming Indie Games to Get Excited About in 2019

I was going to do an upcoming game releases post every two months this year, but, as it turns out, it's hard to find upcoming indie games. It's even harder to find release dates that aren't super vague. So I've decided to just make a post for the entire year! Later in the year I'll probably do another post with games I didn't discover in time for this one. And of course, since this blog focuses...
