Update: Life and Books (Sep 2022)

Well, September was a month. And it's over now! I never know how to start these posts anymore. I call these "Life and Books," but as it turns out, life is usually either too boring to be worth talking about or too complicated to want to talk about, and I pretty much just talk about books, games, music, podcasts, and movies/shows instead.

Cover Love: Cover Reveal for World Running Down by Al Hess

I love sharing and talking about covers on my blog, so I'm excited to be part of a cover reveal today! For a queer post-apocalyptic book about a trans protagonist and an android! And not only is the cover beautiful, it was drawn by the author, which is really cool. I'm seriously loving this cover---the layout, the colors, the vibe, the font, the art itself!

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (6) – In Which I Gush about The Darkness Outside Us

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (6) – In Which I Gush about The Darkness Outside Us

Normally for these posts, I do three different books and pick one song for each. This time I'm doing three songs for the same book! Because it's an amazing book and the absolute perfect kind of book to pair songs with. At least for me, because the reason books and songs go so well together is that they both make me feel, and, well, this book made me feel A LOT. I won't be able to explain all...
