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...

Update: Life and Books (8/12/18)

Sorry, guys, this is one of those update posts where I'm not gonna be all that positive :-/ Things have been tough for me lately. My health and my living situation are kind of a constant struggle, and lately I've also been having a lot of dental work done, which has been exhausting and miserable. And it's only like half done---if everything goes right, which it already seems like it's not...

Book Recs: More June/July/August 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

Whew---try saying that title five times fast! ;-) In my last upcoming releases post, I wasn't able to include all the books I wanted to because they didn't all have covers or blurbs or Goodreads pages or even titles yet. I also knew I would end up finding more books I hadn't known about yet because that's always how these things go. So I'm back, and I'm just as excited to share with you all...
 

Book Review: What Fate Portends (The Frost Arcana Book 1) by Clara Coulson

Update: Life and Books (7/1/18)

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...
 

Bookish Tag Post: You’re Not Good Enough Tag

This sounds like it's going to be a really sad or mean kinda tag, right? But don't you fret, it's actually really fun. The way it works is, you take 30 characters from books you've read, you choose two to use for each question, then you decide which is the better of the two for the answer. I tried to keep this as random as possible, so I chose the books mostly randomly by using my Goodreads...
 

Book Review: Doom Sayer (City of Crows Book 4) by Clara Coulson

When people start rapidly falling ill, Cal and the DSI agents fear some sort of contagion---until a wizard contracts it, causing him to attack a bunch of people in a rage before dropping dead, and Cal can see with his magic-sensing ability that it's actually a curse. When the body count of magic practitioners, including minor practitioners, starts rising, it's up to the DSI to figure out who...
