Random News And Goings-On
I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. Yay, no more 2020! May 2021 be a better year for us all.
I’ll admit I was a little sad around New Year’s Eve–we usually spend it over our friend’s place playing board games all night and being silly taking pictures after the ball drop. But this year that didn’t happen, obviously. Still we had a zoom hangout for a bit and my husband and I played some of our new games so it was still a fun night if not haunted a bit by the ghosts of NYE past… But our Christmas was very good and I’ll admit I didn’t mind having a low-key celebration for that. It was actually nice having my family over and my dad only criticized me about 5 times so that’s a vast improvement. 😉
For reading, right now I’m just sorta randomly going through my TBR and picking a book that I feel in the mood for. Hopefully that will be the way I choose books from now on, for the most part. I do have these last two review books to get to but I’m not stressing about them because they’re both books I’m looking forward to and I think I might pick up one of them next–we’ll see. I could change my mind by tomorrow. I also have a bunch of manga I want to get to, a couple of which are library books so I probably should get on those soon…
As for blogging, I’ve been trying to stay on top of things and for the most part I have been but I admit I have to spend a day catching up on writing and scheduling out some posts. I have about 5 reviews in my drafts folder which is the most I’ve had in a while because I’ve been keeping up. But yes, seasonal depression is coming on strong and I’ve also spent a lot of time over the last month just zoning out watching TV instead of being productive. But that’s okay–sometimes we need to do that, right? I think now that we’re through the holidays I can start to get back to my regular routine. Here’s hoping.
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
I had a little bit of a Christmas book haul. The first batch were gifts to me – The Library of Legends by Janie Chang, Burning Roses by S.L. Huang, Ambergris by Jeff VanderMeer and a nonfiction book – The Warrior Queens by Antonia Fraser. The next batch were gifts to myself with some of my Christmas cash. I’ll probably be picking up some more gifts to myself over the next month or so but we’ll see. 🙂 I picked up The Beautiful and The Damned by Renee Ahdieh and Fangs by Sarah Anderson. This is a very Lisa themed book haul. 😉
I also got my Owlcrate shipment (yes, I signed up again, I can’t help myself it seems) and even though I had guessed what book it was before hand I was sooooo excited to receive a copy of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. The inside of the dust jacket is artwork! I wish more books did this. 🙂
Since my last post I have picked up a few more ebooks as well–I can’t resist! Now, I have added a lot to my plate once again but a lot of these are romances so I’m not anticipating them taking a long time to read through.
- How the Dukes Stole Christmas – historical romance anthology
- To Catch an Earl and The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman
- Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai – I love Alisha Rai’s romances and I need more in my life. 🙂
- Escaping Exodus by Nicky Drayden – another sale book, I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while.
- The First Sister by Linden A. Lewis – so excited to see this on sale! I just had to pick this up.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – this is the 4 book set and I couldn’t resist it, I keep meaning to reread book 1 and then finish the series.
And that about sums up the news for this week, see you next time!
