Gah, I have nothing to talk about again!
Umm, I cut my hair? I cut at least eight inches off, but it’s still what most people would consider long, so that’s probably not very exciting news lol. The hair I temp-dyed teal years ago that never actually washed out have all finally been removed though, so that’s something, I suppose.
Oh! I tried this frozen apple crumble thing that you cook in the oven, and it was delicious. And it’s got apples, so… healthy ;-)
Unfortunately my tennis elbow is still being really bothersome in my right arm :-/ Guess all my news can’t be good. But that about sums it up!
I just want to say thank you to everyone for being supportive of my Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with Disability Masterlist (there’s also a link in header menu, just in case anyone wasn’t sure how where to find it), for sharing it on social media, etc.! And thank you to anyone who has already submitted a book! I don’t know who some of you are since my form is anonymous, but I still appreciate your help :-) Some of new ones people have submitted sound good, I didn’t anticipate how this might affect my TBR, haha. And just for the record there’s no time limit, this is a list I plan to keep updating for however long I keep blogging, so any time you find a book you can submit it! (Also there was a problem with the Amazon links at first, but I’ve fixed it.)
Also, the official Cover Characteristics is back! So I’ll probably be back to doing more of those posts now (I’ll be joining in tomorrow, at least).
Books I Received for Review:
No new review copies! I’m telling you, I’m on a roll here with my review copies, reading more than I’m getting, actually getting the number down—only 16 right now!
Books I Finished:
Rogue Magic was great book and a realistic look at how it might be if we had magic in our modern world. A Face without a Heart, however, wasn’t so great :-/ It was basically just the original Dorian Gray but modernized rather than a unique retelling. Peter Pan was a reread because I read it the first time before I was a blogger and wanted to write a review. But crap, guys, my review is so long. I just have so many thoughts though! I don’t want to shorten it, but I’m pretty sure none of you are going to read it lol. All Darling Children wasn’t perfect but was exactly the kind of dark Peter Pan inspired story based on the original rather than the Disney version that I wanted.
I have a bone to pick though. Reading reviews for the book after I finished writing mine legit made me angry. So many people gave the book low ratings and complained because they didn’t like that it was dark, didn’t like how the author made Peter Pan so bad, didn’t like how she changed the story so much from the DISNEY VERSION. Like, they blamed her for the fact that Peter was psychotic and that it wasn’t all cute and sweet. I obviously have no problem with everyone having different taste and people sometimes not liking books. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But seriously people, if you’re going to complain about something like that, THEN YOU NEED TO AT LEAST KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. The Disney version is NOT the original. Her book was not based on the Disney version. No where in the blurb does it claim to be. The Disney version IS a retelling itself. #&%@*$!
Song of the Week:
No song this week.
In Case You Missed It:
– I introduced my pet project, the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with Disability Masterlist!
– I reviewed The Girl in Between by Laekan Zea Kemp, a mysterious paranormal with a fantastic portrayal of chronic illness and pretty writing.
– I recommended 10 lesser-known sci-fi/fantasy books with disabled characters (which I know is very similar to my list, but this post kind of spotlighted some specific ones).
– I reviewed King’s Lament by Lilia Blanc, an angsty M/M/M high fantasy.
