Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up (2022)

Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up (2022)

The year is officially halfway over, so I thought it was time to look back at all the books I've read so far since the start of 2022. Several of these books I read multiple times during the course of the year, so the actual number of books is higher if you take that into consideration, but I didn't count how many times I re-read books, and some of them I only re-read certain sections, like returning to the romance only portion of some books and skipping the plot. It depends on the book and what I was in the mood for at the time. I also did not include any books that I read in previous years in this list, only the new ones.…

Looking Back on April 2022

Looking Back on April 2022

Another month has come and gone. I spent the first half of this month in a state of stress. Two months of being unemployed were starting to get to me. I had multiple interviews and jumped through a lot of hoops (essays, presentations, etc.) only to be told "the company changed their mind on hiring" or to hear nothing at all. Luckily, I got a job offer from a company I've heard good things about. I won't start the new job until the middle of May, but I'm excited to start that next chapter. I just need to chill for another month, but I'm not stressed about what's going to happen next. I already know. It's just going to take some time before it starts.…

My Thoughts on the Never After Series by Emily McIntire

My Thoughts on the Never After Series by Emily McIntire

I gave brief thoughts on each of the books during my monthly round-ups, but I thought I would discuss the three books released in the Never After Series by Emily McIntire in one post. I find these to be really interesting. Each book is standalone, so you don't have to read them in order for each of them to understand what's happening. They are fractured fairy tales, meaning they have references to the original stories but are not retellings by any means. They are also dark and feature mature and graphic content. So, there are trigger warnings (different ones) for each of the books.…

Looking Back on January 2022

Looking Back on January 2022

Even though I'm not doing goals for 2022, I'm still going to continue with writing out everything I accomplished at the end of each month. Mainly as a diary for myself to look back on everything I managed to do. Ultimately my plan for the year is just to experience new things by playing video games I never have before (a lot of Nintendo games that were on consoles I never had growing up along with others), have fun creatively with art and body painting, and finish writing my novel (without restarting it as I have for the last few years every time I near the ending). On top of that, I think at some point this year I might get another dog, a puppy to be specific, I would like to get one while Pixie still has a pep to her step so she can help train the little one before her elder years. Plus, Pixie ultimately does better when there's another dog around.…
