Another month already?! The year is almost halfway over, and things are starting to open back up. I’m fully vaccinated so yay! This month is going to be crazy to begin with then hopefully things returning to normal around the mid-point of the month. Hopefully, that doesn’t change. I really want things to settle down, so I can get back into a routine and have a sense of time again. Granted, towards the end of the month I’m going to start packing to move in July. But that shouldn’t disrupt too much.
The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller was a book I saw time and time again show up on my recommended list from Amazon. So, I thought I would give it a go. Especially as I was intrigued by the description of it, it sounded like an enemy to lover kind of book. Though perhaps only on one side. This is one of my favorite tropes since the banter between the two main characters is usually enjoyable. Whereas, other types of romances just don’t have that. And if I’m going to read a romance, I need a good plot to back it up.
In Subnautica: Below Zero you get a companion creature similar to the Cuddlefish in the original Subnautica game. It’s called the Trivalve, and there are two different color patterns for your little friend: blue and gold. The trivalve does various play actions after it is hatched and released into the ocean. These include: tickling its nose, stroking its head, giving it with a rock, or feeding it treats. There are six total eggs in the world, four of which are blue and two are gold. Since I did a post similar to this for Subnautica with the Cuddlefish, I thought I’d make one for the Trivalve.
One of the main plot points in Subnautica: Below Zero is helping an Architect named Al-An. First by finding the member of the Architects, who is only the consciousness of the being uploaded to a data hub. The power of that hub started to fail and Alterra did not want to assist. Robin however becomes the new storage medium as Al-An uploads themselves into her head when she tries to help. This resists in the two talking and coming to the agreement that Robin will help Al-An make a new vessel. Which is what I’m going to be sharing details on where to find and build in this post.
When picking the next book to read, I was going to go for something else. Then my mind kept going “yeah but Den of Vipers, what is that about? You keep seeing it on TikTok and quickly scrolling past.” And my curiosity got the better of me. Honestly, the only thing I knew going into this book was that it was spicy and there’s something with a bottle. I didn’t read the book summary or look at any other details. And the accounts I saw this book popping up on normally read fantasy, so I thought it was along those lines… Nope. It was a bit of a shock and outside my normal realm of reading. So, now that I have finished the book I thought I share my thoughts on Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight.
In a recent post, I mentioned how I did a massive book haul. That’s a bit of an understatement. So, I decided to pull every book off my shelf that I want to read. And honestly, I have no idea where I even want to start with tackling this pile. Granted, I already started it last month and have posted reviews on every book that I read. This is not even everything if I’m being 100% honest. There are some books I got last year that should be in here as well, but considering how many books this already is I didn’t go back to grab those. Maybe I’ll end up reading those before some of these, but I thought this would be a fun post to do while I debate on what to read next. Hell, you guys might help me pick which one to start with.
