Looking Back at December 2022

Looking Back at December 2022

Last month of the year. Where has the time gone? This year has had some of my lowest moments (losing my job) to feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder for the first time in almost five years (getting a new job). Not only that, but I got the majority of my teeth fixed, and I still have some more work to be done of course. But I no longer hate the thought of smiling and having people see my teeth. My habits regarding my teeth are better than they were before, and I intend to make that a priority in 2023 so this never happens again. Because I realize when it came to my health, I was doing the wrong thing. I was letting work dictate when or if I could go see doctors, dentists, etc. As I felt like I could never take time off to do so, but not anymore. So, here's to the next year and making myself a priority. But before the new year can kick off, I wanted to look back at everything that happened in December 2022. From what I read, what I did on stream, what happened in my personal life, and what I did as far as body painting.…

My Thoughts on The Wolf and The Wildflower (Fated Fae, Book 2) by Ella Fields

My Thoughts on The Wolf and The Wildflower (Fated Fae, Book 2) by Ella Fields

The Wolf and the Wildflower by Ella Fields is a new standalone book that takes place in the Fated Fae universe, aka the same world used in The Savage and the Swan. While it is a standalone, characters from that book are featured in this one, including Scythe, Fang, and Dade. It takes place roughly around the same time as The Wolf and The Wildflower, as the war is still happening between the Gold Fae and the Red/Blood Fae. But we also learn that wolf-shifting faeries are not something unique to the Red Fae; those across the sea are also able to do so. So, it was interesting coming back to this world and seeing it through a different perspective as one of the main characters is from across the sea, while the other is Scythe.…

My Thoughts on The Savage and The Swan (Fated Fae, Book 1) by Ella Fields

My Thoughts on The Savage and The Swan (Fated Fae, Book 1) by Ella Fields

The Savage and The Swan by Ella Fields is loosely inspired by Hades and Persephone, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Swan Princess. There are elements of each tale woven throughout the book while telling its own unique tale of the King of Wolves, Dade, and the Swan, Opal. This is a standalone romantic fantasy novel, and the first book by Ella Fields I have ever read. I didn't know too many details before going into this book, other than seeing a mention of it on BookTok that it fell into the enemies to lovers trope.…
