Book Review: Rhapsody for Piano and Ghost by Z.A. Maxfield [Audiobook]

Fitz is a lonely college student with no friends except his piano, when suddenly he ends up with a boyfriend, two ghosts who've decided to act as gay surrogate parents, and a long-time-ago step-brother who might be something more. Fitz's boyfriend keeps bringing trouble to his life, but his ghost dads are determined to make sure he ends up with the right person....

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2020)

Technically I'm a couple days early since August hasn't quite ended yet, but eh, I don't think anything noteworthy is gonna happen within the next day or two. Time is a blur this year anyway. Everything is starting to blend together. What even happened in August? Who knows! (I don't mean to make light of the terrible things that have been happening, but it's just a constant barrage, sometimes I...
 
Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (2)

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (2)

I've said before that I love pairing books and music because they just go so well together. The right song can really enhance the reading experience, and sometimes you find a song that just perfectly embodies the feeling or vibe of a book, scene, or character. Also, books and songs are both just great, and I love recommending the good ones I find. So here are three more book and song...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2020) + Song & Game Recs!

I don't feel like talking about my health problems and doctor appointments, so I guess I'll use this intro to talk about the things I've been listening to, since that's all I've been able to do lately. I've started two more nonfiction podcasts! One is Sex Stories, a podcast where a woman interviews different people on their experiences, thoughts, etc. about sex, and I'm finding it really...

Update: Life and Books (June 2019)

June is over! (Well, I just realized this is posting on the 30th, but close enough.) I don't know why I said that so excitedly. I don't have anything against June or any special affinity for July. But anyway, I did more art! I was unexpectedly inspired by the #Junicorn tag on Twitter and ended up drawing two half-unicorns. I think my dancing half-unicorn (with Vitiligo, in case anyone doesn't...

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...

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

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...

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups

Books and music just go together beautifully. Personally, I think it's because they both evoke emotions so well, and songs can very much enhance the emotions from a book for me. But, while I do enjoy making whole playlists, sometimes I just end up connecting one song in particular to a book, so here are three book and song match-ups that I think go together...

The Weekly Update: 11/26/17

I've kind of been in a mood lately. I haven't been feeling great, I'm so stressed about so many things, I'm anxious about other things, and now this Net Neutrality issue is making everything worse. I mean, what's going to happen to our whole book blogging community if it gets repealed? (I know that's not the only thing that would be affected, but the list of things and people that would be...
