Hi all! It’s been a little over a month since my last update. I’m still in a bit of malaise but doing my best to work my way out of that. I’ve begun therapy and this week we’re supposed to come up with a treatment plan so I’m excited for that. Hopefully will get me on the right path and give me some tools to manage my anxiety.
As far as reading goes, I have actually read a few things–mostly romance but some fantasy and fantasy romance. Hilariously I still haven’t finished The Name of All Things yet even though I only have like half an hour left just because I haven’t touched an audiobook for months. Let’s see…since my last update I’ve read eleven books! Three contemporary romance, two historical romance, two fantasy romance, one sci-fi romance, one sci-fi novella, and two fantasy books (both of those rereads). The rereads were Wolfsong by T.J. Klune (let’s face it, that’s also sort of a romance) and Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson (also has a pretty decent romance in it!). The only book I’ve read lately that didn’t have any romance was A Psalm for the Wild Built by Becky Chambers which was lovely because it’s Becky Chambers and everything she writes is pretty much perfection.
Right now I’m reading another fantasy, the latest in the Chronicles of Elantra series by Michelle Sagara–Cast in Conflict. Can’t believe we’re on book 16 of this series! I love it though and am deeply committed to it. I just started this one but it’s always a comfort to be back in this world. She has the 2nd of her spin off prequels about Severn coming out next year and I’m looking forward to that as well.
I do have a couple of books that have arrived for review so I may actually try to get to those because they’re both things I’d mood read anyway. Some other new arrivals have trickled in as well.
The Mast of Mirrors by M.A. Carrick and The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso I have read and loved both of these! I just didn’t have physical copies and wanted them for my shelves. This supply chain issue has got me panic buying books y’all.
Notes From the Burning Age by Claire North and The Hand of the Sun King by J.T. Greathouse were both from Goldsboro, probably my last of those purchases for a while. I cut off book subscriptions for a bit as I was getting super backed up in books. Of course I also have a bunch of preorders that will be rolling in soon haha. Eventually I’ll catch up. Or not.
So, that’s about it. I’ve been spending the last month trying to have fun when I can and binge watching dramas and trying to read. I did also get my sewing machine out of storage and it works so I may start a small sewing project soon just to practice. We’ll see what happens.
I’m not up to getting back into my regular schedule just yet but I do hope to start posting some reviews and stuff again soon, hopefully in the next couple of weeks. My goal is to get back into the swing of things this Fall (which is just around the corner!).
Hope you’re all doing well! Stay safe out there friends.
