Let’s see. What did I do in April…
I played more games because they’re a great distraction from real life. Which means I also got a lot of headaches, but eh, that’s not fun to talk about. I’ve been having a lot of fun with Sun Haven! It’s the first cutesy farming/crafting sim I’ve played, and it’s full of fantasy stuff, and my character is a naga with four boyfriends 🙂 I want to stop for a bit to wait for more updates and mods, but also I’m having so much fun that I don’t want to stop.
Look at my cute little naga character in Sun Haven!! This is a fun game so far ???? pic.twitter.com/hUVGQ1RWel

I also stumbled upon this when I was looking into Stardew Valley:
"This is my kitchen husband, John. This is my outdoors husband, Ivan. This is—Mark! MARK! Get off the patio! It's not your patio day!"
I assume the game just has your one spouse in all those places normally, but this is still what my mind started imagining ???? 2/2

I also played Chronicles of Tal’Dun: The Remainder, which was a sort of dark visual novel about mages in a tower with a ritual gone wrong. Took me a bit to warm up to, but I really liked it once I got further into it. The characters were fascinating.

I’m sorry that I’ve sucked at commenting lately, both on other blogs and my own. I’m struggling with chronic illness and pandemic and lots of things right now, which means I’ll probably continue to suck at commenting. So visit my posts if you’re interested, leave a like or a comment if you feel like it, I do still read them! Or don’t, if you don’t feel like it. I know others might be struggling too.
Books I Received for Review:
Platinum Blood by Mor Ichigaya, from Tokyopop. (Vampire manga!) Three Meant to Be by MN Bennet, from BookSirens. (Magic + second chance romance!) I also got two audiobooks from NetGalley, which made me happy. (Esp since I got approved for both on my birthday, and it was only the day after I requested them.) Witch King by Martha Wells (high fantasy demon!), and The Alchemy of Moonlight by David Ferraro (a castle and werewolves, I think!).
Books I Finished:
I haven’t been reading/listening to as many books as usual lately. I also haven’t had great luck with books lately. I’ve enjoyed some, but there have been a lot of meh ones. Don’t let that stop you if you want to read any of these though! Anyway, I pretty much only review books on my blog nowadays if I really like them or have some reason that compels me to review them, and I’m going to run out of reviews at this rate.
Just for the record, the covers I use in these posts aren’t indications of my feelings, it’s just whichever covers I already have uploaded or will need for another post at some point.
If you’re considering buying one of the books below from Amazon, I’d really appreciate if you’d use my affiliate link!
The Wicked Bargain by Gabe Cole Novoa – I enjoyed the YA trans rep and the magic, but I never got super into the book.
Saint Juniper’s Folly by Alex Crespo – A YA story with cute romance and friendship and character growth.
Of Knights and Books and Falling in Love by Rita A. Rubin – A cute and very chill fantasy romance. Though I would’ve liked to see a little more of the time the characters spent together.
Gary of a Hundred Days by Isabel Murray – A quick, if not super memorable, fantasy romance. I do think it’s a fun idea to take what is normally a big thing stories focus on (a king dethroned and on the run) and just use it as a background thing.
Ocean’s Echo by Everina Maxwell – The writing was good, the characters were three-dimensional, the story and world were well thought-out… but the book was so long, and I was bored. Idk. I’ll read more from this author though, I loved the first book.
Platinum Blood by Mor Ichigaya – This was a little too ridiculous for me. But if you just want some sexy gay vampire art, this graphic novel has got you covered.
Witch King by Martha Wells – This was pretty slow. Not quite interesting enough for me to really get into it, but interesting enough for me to keep listening.
In Case You Missed It:
Does anyone ever click the links in this section? Let me know if you do. I might just get rid of it.
