I have some good news! I had a fantastic creative/bookish week! I read/received some books about uncommon supernatural creature MCs, ordered some books with gift card money while they were on sale and I had free shipping, and…
I actually wrote something! Like, 3500 words of something! It’s about Jacovine because I have #Jacovine4Lyf on the brain. (If you missed the post or have forgotten, I’m talking about my sims.) And in case you were about to ask, no, I am not going to post it. It’s awful. Also, half of it is just vampire sex. The other half is based on half-formed, inconsistent ideas that I’m not even 100% sure about. And then it just kind of trails off. But at least I wrote! (Of course now my arms are hurting and I might not get around to everyone’s Sunday Posts this week.)
I also wrote a poem! Something else I haven’t done in a long time. I’ve only written one poem in like two years. Well, now two poems. It’s about a misunderstood merman. (I’ve also had mermen on the brain.)
Anyway, I probably won’t write again for like another year now since that seems to be my pattern.
Other than that, I watched a few more movies this past week while I still had a free Amazon Prime trial. Nerve was not exactly what I’d call believable, but it was fun in a mindless kinda way, and I liked the visuals. Age of Adaline was alright, but I didn’t think it was anything particularly special. I also watched American Beauty, which I’ve seen before but didn’t really remember. It’s really a strange movie.
Nothing I didn’t mention already in the intro.
Books I Received for Review:
Seti’s Heart is from Dreamspinner, and The Glamour Thieves is from Riptide on NG.
Books I Finished:
One of my goals for like a year and half has been to read more books about uncommon supernatural creates, and I’m finally managing to do that! First mummies (Graveyard Shift, kind of Seti’s Heart), then orcs (The Glamour Thieves)! Graveyard Shift was a great, gritty UF, and I loved the mummy aspect. Seti’s Heart wasn’t really about a mummy since he was just reanimated to the same human sorcerer he was before, but it was a fun, albeit not super memorable, book. The Storm Lords was enjoyable and sweet. Annnnnd to top off my great bookish week, I finally found a book that impressed me! The Glamour Thieves was fantastic! Gritty and raunchy, so maybe not for those with delicate sensibilities, but really strong characters and writing!
Song of the Week:
Nothing this week.
Laugh of the Week:
Nothing this week.
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed Ghosts by Nicholas Sansbury Smith, a gripping, gritty, unique post-apocalyptic.
– I shared my history of failed blogs (before I started this one).
– I reviewed The Nero Protocol by Victoria Zagar, a thought-provoking M/M sci-fi romance with androids.
