So… I might have carpal tunnel in my right wrist from using the computer too much. Or maybe tendonitis. Or some other joint-related thing? Whatever it is, it’s something. And this is a problem, to say the least, because not only do I need to use the computer to blog (which, along with reading, keeps me sane), I also need it in order to work. So I’m really hoping that whatever it is will just heal on its own—quickly—but I guess we’ll see. For now I’m resting, icing, and sometimes wearing this crazy contraption to see if it helps, though I think the brace might be making it worse?
And to top it all off, the painters are still disrupting my sleep, and a plumber worked on the plumbing for the building but screwed up the water pressure, so I have to practically stand against the wall just to take a shower -_-
But anyway, this post was already ready, and I have almost all my December posts ready, so I’ll still be posting, and I’ll still be around and reading posts and whatnot while I’m attempting to heal, I just may not be able to comment much until my wrist feels better. Or my comments will be like, “Great post!” but I promise I’ll actually mean it lol.
So everyone please have a better week than I am having and don’t hate me for being a crappy commenter for a while!
Since I don’t know when Cover Characteristics will officially be back, I wanted to let anyone who’s interested know that I’ll be posting cover featuring snow on 12/5, snow globes on 12/12, and my favorites covers from books I read this year on 12/19. If anyone wants to join in on those topics, go ahead and come visit so that I can check out yours too!
Books I Received for Review:
A Face Without a Heart is a modern day Dorian Grey retelling! How awesome is that?? And Unfolding has an MC with epilepsy and scoliosis, which is also awesome! (Not that he has those problems of course, just that disability is being included.)
Books I Finished:
Raven was fun but quick since it was a standalone novella in the Creepy Hollow series. King’s Lament had potential and wasn’t all bad, but I had quite a few issues that kinda piled up.
Song of the Week:
I’ve actually just been listening to J. Armand’s Immortal Coil playlist all week. It reminds me of the characters which makes me happy, but it’s also just good music.
In Case You Missed It:
– I shared my method for keeping track of blog posts using a spreadsheet. (P.S. You can download my 2017 spreadsheet for your own use!)
– I reviewed Snowed by Maria Alexander, a unique, dark take on the Santa & Krampus lore.
– I reviewed Letting Lier and Finding Pax by Harper Moon, a somewhat dark M/M book set in space.
– I reviewed Raven by Rachel Morgan, a novella about faeries, forbidden romance, and high fashion.
