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 at June 2022

Looking Back at June 2022

I've officially been at my new job for a full month and have spent the entire time training. It's been interesting, as it's felt like I've been at school for a month instead of actually working. There have been homework assignments, presentations, and demonstrations of knowledge. I'll be curious to see what happens once I get into actually working tasks/issues. But so far it's been non-stop learning. I finished off the month by giving a demonstration of what I had learned thus far and will have several more of these next month. I think it went pretty well, and I found it interesting how to go into the presentation, as it was different from how I gave trainings in the past.…

Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in June 2022

Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in June 2022

I haven't done a post like this since March, while there have been new releases since then there wasn't a lot to the point where I felt inclined to write a post like this. But in June there are five books that I'm looking forward to coming out this month. Of course, there will be other books that I will be reading as well. Most of which will be off Kindle Unlimited, got to get my money's worth out of that subscription. Which never seems to be an issue, since I signed up for it.…

Looking Back on March 2022

Looking Back on March 2022

My string of bad luck continued into March. Besides not finding a new job, literally, every application of mine was rejected or came back with "we're going with other applicants at this time", my computer decided that I was no longer allowed to play video games after I finished Hollow Knight. I have professionally worked for a decade with computers, you would think I would be able to fix this issue rather easily. But nope... I did next to everything I could think of. …

Book Releases I’m Looking Forward to This Month

Book Releases I’m Looking Forward to This Month

There are quite a few books releasing this month that I'm really excited to read as I've been waiting on them to come out for months. All of these are the latest releases in the series I've read. A few of these, I had been looking forward to reading sooner but the release date for them got pushed back to March for one reason or another by the author. And this month they should be coming out, so I'm super excited to get my hands on them.…

Everything I Read in 2021

Everything I Read in 2021

It's been an entire year. I hope everyone had a good year. I thought I would wrap up the year by looking back at every single book I read in 2021. Honestly, I'm surprised by how many books I read. Not only that but I started reading new genres during the course of this year, though it still is related to fantasy/sci-fi (for the most part). We'll see if 2022 is similar in terms of how many books I read. I have a lot on my reading list still.…

Reflecting on December 2021 Goals

Reflecting on December 2021 Goals

The month is over and so is 2021! Normally when I revisit goals from the previous month, I go over my goals for the next month. I'm not sure if right now where I'm hoping 2022 to go, so I'm going to hold off on making goals at the moment. I'm just going to live in the moment for the beginning part of the year and see how that goes. I'll do reflections on the months still going forward on what's been going on, what I've been consuming for entertainment, and whatnot.…

My Thoughts on Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses, Book 1) by Sav R. Miller

My Thoughts on Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses, Book 1) by Sav R. Miller

I don't recall where I first saw this book. Either it popped up on my Amazon when I was looking at what to read next, or I saw it on TikTok at some point. Considering, how many book recommendations come across on there, it's completely possible. Especially since it's Hades and Persephone reimagining and romance. It's a dark romance at that, there are trigger warnings with this book. So, be warned before going into this book if you're going to pick it up yourself. But I wanted to check it out after reading six out of eight books of The Millennium Wolves on Galatea (I'm not going to review them as it would mostly be a review of the app) for the last week. As I needed something that was a mix between romance and fantasy before going back to the other books I have to read.…
