Update: Life and Books (Feb 2019)

Let's see, real life updates... Nobody ask me about my dental situation. It's still not any better, and I don't want to talk about it. I also managed to bend back like a third of my big toe nail when I hit it with my other heel, so that was fun. I don't know how I even do these things. But my parents' shower still has a chunk of tile missing from where I once slipped and hit my heel against it...
 

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...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2018 – Runners Up

As I was gathering covers for my annual best covers post, I came to the conclusion that I had too many. Competition was fierce this year, and I had to draw the line somewhere when it came to how many covers to include. But there were just so many great ones! So I decided to do a separate post for the runners up, the covers that didn't quite make it into the top 20 but were close and still deserve...
 

Update: Life and Books (12/2/18)

I wanna start by letting my fellow bloggers know that I've not been avoiding you all! I've just not been doing a good job of bloghopping lately because I'm still having dental problems (here's the latest update about that---basically I've already been to 9 appointments and still have at least 10 or 11 more at the very minimum, including at least one minor surgery, but it'll probably turn out to...

Update: Life and Books (11/4/18)

Another month gone by! Did everyone have a good Halloween? I dressed up as a person sitting at home reading and blogging. Because I was a person sitting at home reading and blogging :-P Unfortunately my dental situation is still a mess. No dentist/specialist seems to know anything, I might need implants now (if I'm even a candidate for that), and I can't even find a doctor in my area who a)...
 

Book Review: Day Killer (City of Crows Book 5) by Clara Coulson

Finally finished with rehab for his injuries, Cal is spending his first night back home in months, but he's interrupted by a severely injured vampire showing up at his door. Thanks to Lucian, Cal gets mixed up in the middle of vampire politics and will have to spend the next 24 hours trying to keep the vampire in his care safe, trying to outrun those who are after them, and trying to save the...
 

Update: Life and Books (9/9/18)

It's been another month since I've done one of these updates, and a while since I've done any discussions, because I've still been exhausted and, quite honestly, upset. I need to vent (When did my blog become my diary? I have no idea, but apparently it has.), and hopefully you'll forgive me for being so negative when I explain. (Or you can skip the intro if you don't want to read about more...
