Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

I did a post with opening lines before, and I'm doing it again because I just think it's really interesting to look at the opening lines of books! I don't know about you all, but I tend to just kind of gloss over the first line, in a way, and immediately forget it by the time I'm a few sentences deep. I don't really stop to pay attention to just the opening line specifically when I'm starting...

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...
 
Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

About a year and a half ago, I developed this nerve problem in my head, and ever since then, I haven't been able to read much with my eyes without getting headaches. But the thing is, I still love books! Sure, I can read small amounts and take painkillers, but I could never read 100+ books a year like I normally do. Audiobooks are a great option, and thankfully I have access to many through my...

Book Review: Strangers in the Night (The Hunter and the Spider Book 1) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

The two become genuine friends, maybe more, but they have a lot of enemies, including the hunters who aren't letting them go that...
 
Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

I feel like I kind of neglect science fiction books on this blog, but I do read sci-fi books sometimes! So I thought it would be fun to take ten different types of sci-fi worlds I'm familiar with and rank them based entirely on my own personal opinion about how much I'd want to live in them. Then you can tell me how wrong I am in the comments and how you would rank these instead...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2021)

So. It's been a month. An attempted coup. A second impeachment. An inauguration. Stock market stuff. At least some of those things are good! Still, it's just been a lot, on top of personal life, health, etc. I decided to go back and add a background to the Jacovine vampire smut I shared over a year ago but never really got to finish because that was when my head nerve problem started. The...
