So a small update…

So…

 

I haven’t really been updating on my life. It’s not cause I don’t want too!

 

Life just has been busy as hell! I am lucky if I get a moment to sit down and not worry about if X is going to complicate Y, or if there is enough money to do XYZ. Or if I can get ABC to KYL in time to make sure BLH is done!

Life is kicking my ass.

Nothing bad is happening. It’s just been busy. Life has actually been.. good! We actually have adopted! Here is our sweet boy now:

20181130_145608

We named him Ruce! It’s a long story how we got him, that I may write out in another blog post.

So while life is kicking my ass… I am going to force myself to sit down and do what I need for me. For me, that’s reading, writing and gaming. That’s one of the reasons why I started PokeJournal!

I really hope I stick with it. I really love the concept of it, and want to do more than just Pokémon White.

If this works out, I may venture off to other games. Who knows?

I am also gonna try to get back into book blogging on here again. SLOWLY. I miss it. I really do. I may cross post the blogs (and mark off that I am when I do).

The stuff on my rant/short story blog, Six of Crows is going to stay there for the most part. While I might cross post some in the future, it’s going to pretty much stay the same.

I know it’s weird having three blogs, but it makes sense for me.

I am weird about certain things.

I hope everyone has been doing well! I would love to know what is going on in your lives!

Anyways, this is it for now!

Top Ten Tuesday 9/27/16: Books on my Fall TBR!

Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is Top Ten Audio Freebie so, due to my recent obsession, I have chosen ‘Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR!‘ so here they are!:

 

 

So what is on your TBR for this fall? Leave me a comment down below! 😀

Why I have been missing/Cover reveal for The Winner’s Kiss!

Exquisite Corpse by Pénélope Bagieu

Title: Exquisite Corpse

Author: Pénélope Bagieu

Series: No.

Format: Finished copy. (Thanks, Gina!)

Page Count: 124

Publisher: First Second Books

Age Range: 18+

Genre: Graphic Novel. Fiction, Adult, Romance, Humor, Contemporary

Description on Goodreads:

Zoe isn’t exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn’t recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment…and into his life. It’s also why she doesn’t know that Rocher is supposed to be dead. Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as “lost manuscripts,” in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she’s there anyway. . . . Zoe doesn’t know Balzac from Batman, but she’s going to have to wise up fast… because she’s sitting on the literary scandal of the century!

Review:

This book took me by surprise.

From down, dower and abused, to new love, excitement  and PLOT TWISTS FROM OUTTA NO WHERE!

Zoe is an amazing character. Even though her boyfriend at the start is a horrible person, she is herself, no matter what. Even when a random chance encounter happens.

With a wide variety of complex and lovely characters, I can see myself reading this over and over again. 🙂

My Rating:

5/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too):

Anyone who loves realisitic, although a bit far fetched fiction, plot twists, and a good read.

The Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs

Title: The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy; A Handbook for GIRL GEEKS

Author: Sam Maggs

Series: No.

Format: eARC and Finished Copy

Page Count: 208

Publisher: Quirk Books

Age Range: 14+

Genre: Non-Fiction, Feminism, How to, Guides

Description on Goodreads:

Fanfic, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes for everything from starting an online fan community to planning a convention visit to supporting fellow female geeks in the wild.

Review:

First off:

EVERY GEEK, NO MATTER IF MALE, FEMALE, NON GENDER BIANARY, NEEDS THIS. Oh lord. This is the best guide I have seen.

Yes. I am gushing.

I have been WAITING to make this review. This is what guides should be. There are so many topics, and how to’s, terminologies… I thought -I- knew them all. I was so wrong.

From Saltgunners, to Otakon, Anti-Troll advice, Conventions do’s and don’t’s, this book has it all in so little of pages.  I want every person in the world who identifies as a geek, nerd, hell even Jock and Prep and BEYOND to have this book. This has to be the single most amazing geeky thing I own. And I own a lot.

Like a Jake the Dog bowtie.

This guide is all at once, informative, cute, kick ass and just a need in all homes. I know I must be gushing, yet not giving much detail. There is a reason. I want you to experience it yourself. Like any good book, hearing about it second hand is NOTHING like reading it yourself.

My Rating: 5/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): EVERYONE. GET IT. NOW. PREORDER THAT SCHNIT!

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

Title: 99 Days

Author: Katie Cotugno

Series: No.

Format: ARC

Page Count: 384

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Age Range: 16+

Genre: Contemporary/Young Adult/Romance/Social Issues

Description on Goodreads:

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

Review:

Well. This is one whopper of a book. I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. When I first recieved it from the wonderful Heather Doss at Harper, (thank you again!), I was skeptical. Very skeptical. I know How to Love had been hyped quiiitteee a bit on Twitter and on Booktube… but I had heard very little about 99 Days. Heck, part of me forgot it was even coming out.

This book will live up to any of the hype it gets. Despite some iffy subject matter, I really enjoyed this book. I flew through it, and while I did have some problems with a few characters, the over all development was nice. The story building was nice, and a bit refreshing. It’s been a little bit since I read it; and I still find myself thinking about Molly.

I really found myself emotionally charged and invested in the story. I still want more! I need to know! I felt like a teen again, caught in what felt like “real life” was. It actually motivated me to grab her first book!

This book comes out on the 21st!

My Rating: 4/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who needs a good reminder of youth/Loves drama/Loves soap operas.
