Update: Life and Books (July/August 2019)

Technically, I'm not back from my hiatus yet, but, well, I'll explain. I've been having this problem with some of the muscles in my face, kinda like an RSI, but it gets worse and gives me bad headaches whenever I do anything that causes a lot of eye motion or anything that causes the muscles to move. So pretty much everything, but especially reading, using the computer (which includes...
 

Announcement: I’ve Added an Easy Way to Find Diverse Books on My Blog + Some Recs

This is just a quick post to let everyone know I've added a new page to my blog! It's not as detailed or as vast as the books with disability list because it's only books that I've read, but it includes POC, LGBT+, disability (mental and physical), and religion. I've always had these tags and links on my blog, but I figured everyone might not know about them, so I've just compiled all the links...
 

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 (May 2019) + All My #Mermay Art!

So BEA just passed (or maybe is still happening?) and every other blogger will probably be sharing massive book hauls today. Not me. Instead, I just have LOTS OF MERFOLK! (This is going to be a very image-filled post 😬) #Mermay has ended, but I ended up doing six pieces, which is five more than I thought I'd do, and also the most art I've done in a month probably ever. Last month I shared...
 

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2019)

Another month has gone by, and I don't want to talk about "real life" at the moment because it's not going great, so we'll just stick to positives in this update! I do have a favor to ask though. If you ever shop Amazon US, I would appreciate it so much if you could use my affiliate links! They're all over my blog, including this post (the book covers). It doesn't cost you anything extra, but...
 

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2019)

Hello again, my fellow book loving peeps. I gotta be honest, I am still struggling a lot. Both physically and mentally, for numerous reasons that I don't feel like getting into (if you've been reading my updates, you know some of them). I just feel so drained at this point. So blogging has been a bit of a struggle too. I just haven't had the energy to go through literally hundreds of posts on...
 

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...
 

Update: Life and Books (12/30/18)

It's December 31st! One year is ending, and a new one is beginning. Call me what you will (some would go with pessimist, I say realist), but I'm not feeling very positive about it, not when all my problems from this year are just carrying over into the new one. But I know no one wants to end their year by listening to me complain, so luckily I do have some good things to share about the past four...
 

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...
