Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (4) – The Simon Snow + FUN. Edition

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (4) – The Simon Snow + FUN. Edition

As you might already know, if you've visited before, I love pairing books and music! Which is why I do these posts. But this one is a bit unique in that I chose three books from the same series and three songs from the same artist. The same artist thing actually wasn't intentional, or at least, not my original plan. But it just so happened that the three FUN. songs I know all seemed perfect, so I...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2021)

Another month, another monthly post in which I have to figure out what to talk about. I played some of the games I bought in the Steam sale last month! The Starfighter: Eclipse game, the one I'd wanted for a long time, was unfortunately a disappointment. Monster Hunting... for Love was fun though. I also played a bunch of very quick, free games by npckc on itch.io. They were cute, and my...

Update: Life and Books (July 2021)

I'm not sure what I did in July. Not much, to be honest. I bought a few games in the Steam sale that I thought might be accessible with some sort of TTS only to find most of them weren't, so I returned one. Kept one because it was 50% off and a game I'd wanted for a long time. One was partially accessible and only a couple dollars, so I kept it too. And the last was also only a few dollars and...

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

Yep, it's another book and song match-up post! What can I say? I like doing these. Books and music go great together. They've both got the meanings and the feels and the vibes. Once again, I happen to think these are all great books and great songs! The first song is a bit older, I have memories of it from when I was about sixteen. I really wanna use more songs that aren't super recent in...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2021) + I Finally Made Some Art!

So it appears we've made it through March? I've been pushing myself too hard because I need the mental distraction, but that means a lot of headaches, and I banged my bad foot against something, and I temporarily hurt my arm (though it seems back to usual tennis elbow pain now), so not my best month. But I made some art! Something I have not done for almost a year. And I really, really love...

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2021)

Another month gone by. For some reason I keep thinking it's June? I've acquired some allergies(?) and new aches and pains to add to the list of health problems, none of which are serious, but they still suck, and they're conflicting with other problems, but I'm still chuggin' along. I've worked on some art (which isn't ready to share yet) and played some games! It hasn't been good for my...

Update: Life and Books (Nov 2020)

We did it! We voted Trump out! I know I'm a little late with that celebration, but I couldn't not share my excitement. It's just such a relief to know we won't be subjected to the catastrophe that four more years of him would've been. In other, less significant news (but still significant to me)... I cut my hair! (Literally cut it myself!) And I'm excited about it! It's a big deal for me...

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)

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...
