Early Arrivals

Ah, Friday, we meet again…

*sidles up to the weekend and gives it a wink*

Man, I am TIRED guys. I think it’s allergies, or maybe it’s the physical and mental drain of being alive in a time of constant strife? But it’s probably the allergies. How are you? I hope you’re doing well on this fine Friday, as I write this there is a moth that keeps hitting the window of my office, that’s absolutely a dark omen, isn’t it? It’s a black moth, and I mean, nothing good can come from that.

Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read

I feel personally attacked by this prompt.

Like, wow… way to call me out TTT, and here I was thinking that we were friends.

So this week, we’re making ourselves feel guilty about our reading habits and choices. Am I using the royal we right now? Maybe? I’m sure some of you feel included in this, however, so maybe we’re not? Oh, wait, that last one definitely was… oh well. Backspace? Never met her.

The Struggle of Spring

It’s been a cold few days here, we went from temps in the mid 80’s (around 26 degrees Celsius) to the low forties in the span of a day, with snow, hail, sleet, rain, and high winds, so needless to say that plants are a mess right now. I planted my morning glories and I guess this is punishment for that, because the day after I did it was when the temperature yeeted itself into cold again. We froze overnight, but by Saturday we’re expected to be back into the low 80’s, ah- Spring!

Top Ten Bookish Characters

Another week, another TTT- I hope your May has started off well, mine hasn’t! But that’s neither here nor there. No, what’s here, right now, at this very moment, is a list of characters from books that have bookish professions. This is gonna be hard, I can’t think of any off the top of my head… but whatever!

*takes a long drink of tea and rolls up sleeves*

Let’s rock and roll.

Wondering if…

Hello lovelies! I hope the week’s been treating you well and you’ve got a nice weekend to look forward to! I had another productive few days, and I’m pleased to report that I’m still feeling pretty good about the routine I’ve set for myself. It’s funny, because there’s people in my life who are always bugging me about how much work I do, but if work makes you happy, it doesn’t feel like “work” per se. I like writing, I like photo editing, and I like posting here, but I’m not really into the things most people do in their free time. I can’t remember the last time I sat down and watched anything other then YouTube content, and that horrifies people?

I don’t know man, to quote the great Mike Shinoda- I like what I do, I do what I like.

Three Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read

Okay, so this was supposed to be one word reviews, but I am nothing if not given to rambling, so I upped it to three, because one is just too limiting and I don’t want to be held back by restrictions like that anymore. Maybe that says more about my personal life then I’d like to admit? Trauma? Never met her.

Monthly Wrap Up

April 2022 Wrap Up

Wow, is April really over? What a wild ride this month has been, and it went by so fast, too! I didn’t manage to read nearly as many books as I should have, and I feel guilty because I work at a bookstore, I really need to up my game! But, I’ve been writing like crazy (over 70,000 words), got back into the groove with photography, and found a ton of new music I really like.

So overall, I’d say April was a good and productive month, and I hope I can keep the momentum going come May!

We Hurt and Heal the Same

Oh my gosh hello, everyone! Happy Friday to all of you that have a normal work week, and my apologies to those that don’t. I hope this post is finding you all well- I’m bursting at the seems because it’s only like, five weeks away till BTS has their comeback, and while I’m sure most of you have zero interest in that, I am a living, breathing hype-machine, so here we are.

This week we continue with our happy celebration of Spring, it’s all flowers, all the time, or at least until I can get away to the coast for a few days at the end of the month. I’m super excited for my upcoming vacation, it will be the longest trip we’ve taken since 2019, and I. Am. Ready.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the pics, and I’ll see you in the next post!

Book Reviews

The Little Mushroom: Judgement Day, by Shisi

Rating at a Glance

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Oh boy you guys- So I ordered this book on an impulsive whim one sleep deprived and slow evening at work. Here’s what I thought I was going to get; a sweet, sentient mushroom gains the ability to take on a human form through the absorption of human DNA. He leaves his home in the wilds behind and enters modern society, where he has to learn all about what it means to be human, while falling in love with a stoic but ultimately sweet military figure.

And I mean, I wasn’t wrong…

I also didn’t have the full picture.

This book is sci-fi, dystopian, post-apocalyptic chaos. There are grisly deaths, attempted rape, and mass bombings, all while being surrounded by a hostile natural world that is constantly attempting to wipe out the remains of humanity. There is very little joy in this story, and isn’t my usual choice of book… but… but…

I loved it. Read on to find out why.

Books with Unicorns on the Cover

Hello, lovelies! I hope this post finds you well. This week we’ve got unicorns! Big unicorns, tiny unicorns, murder unicorns, unicorns that are not narwhals, and more! I had a blast doing this post, and I hope you enjoy reading it. Disclaimer: I wrote most of it in the small hours of the morning while drinking extra strong coffee on an empty stomach, so let me just apologize right now, okay? It’s all very much meant to not be taken seriously, so apologies in advance to Texas, okay?
