Let’s see, real life updates…
Nobody ask me about my dental situation. It’s still not any better, and I don’t want to talk about it. I also managed to bend back like a third of my big toe nail when I hit it with my other heel, so that was fun. I don’t know how I even do these things. But my parents’ shower still has a chunk of tile missing from where I once slipped and hit my heel against it and broke the tile (my heel was fine), so apparently I have indestructible heels, and my poor toe nail didn’t stand a chance.
Anyway, I mentioned last month that I have what I think is a cyst on my finger from doing art, and it’s still there, but I’ve been wrapping it up and continuing to do art anyway. This time I’ve made fan art! Including one smutty one 😉 You can check them out in my review for Infernal Providence. I also finished touching up my painting of Levine (it’s not drastically different from what I shared last time, but it’ll bother me if I don’t post the finished version), and I did some art of Matthew and Elliott dancing (also from my supernatural sims posts, my little dancin’ boys). I don’t love how that one came out, but I did something I’d never done before. I used a photo as reference for the pose but changed the bodies and clothes to look like them, plus I attempted to add some cool lighting, so that counts for something. *Update: There’s an redone version here.*
I won some giveaways! So that’s a bit of good news, at least. I won Karen’s (For What It’s Worth) 2019 release giveaway and a gift card from Daniela (Bookiverse), but I have yet to decide what book(s) I’ll be getting. There are SO MANY amazing sounding books coming out this year, and I am an indecisive person, but I’m excited that I get to pick out a new book!
Books I Received for Review:
The first three are from the authors. The Grand Dark is from Edelweiss. Tangled Web is from NetGalley. It’s a series I’ve really been wanting to read, but I don’t have the first two books :-/ Anyone have them on Kindle and want to lend them to me (if they’re lendable)? I would really appreciate it! The Fever King is also from NetGalley.
Books I Finished:
I forgot to include Treasures, Demons, and Other Black Magic last month, so I’m including it here. I’ve been enjoying the audios for this urban fantasy series! What Dawn Demands was another good book in the Frost Arcana series. And I loved my reread of the Immortal Coil series, as well as the latest book!
What I’m Loving:
This month, what I’m loving is…
I’ve been enjoying his songs and his sound lately, especially the one above.
The Second Term DLC has been a fun distraction from real life lately! Monster Prom is such a fun game. I absolutely recommend it. I don’t know if I’m gonna bother reviewing the DLC on the blog, but you can find my original review here.
In Case You Missed It:
Here are the highlights:
– I shared March/April SFF book releases to get excited about!
