For the past two weeks I have been
meaning to post a September Recap and an October midmonth TBR but suddenly it
is the last week of October and I definitely have not done that. I also haven’t
made much progress on the TBR. So now I’m thinking that I will just hold off
until the end of November to do a recap, and until then I’ll post my usual book
reviews, product reviews, and project updates. Each month I’m going to announce
what charity or cause I’m donating a part of my sales to on the main page. I’m
going to keep updating each page as well.
Right now, I am planning on posting some
new crate reviews soon. I’m probably going to try and post on every Saturday
going forward (this goal may not be achieved once NaNoWriMo starts). But for
now, the posts I’m planning are: Review: Capturing the Devil Hangover
Crate by Faecrate, Review: October Break the Wheel Crate by Faecrate, Review:
The Witchlands Series (To Date) by Susan Dennard + boxed set plug, Review:
Stalking Jack the Ripper Series by Kerri Maniscalco + boxed set plug, Project
Announcement: NaNoWriMo 2019. So keep an eye out for those soon.
On Sundays, I’m planning on posting the
final recap for the three-month period, and business page updates on each
business page (all links are in the bio.) This is also when I’ll update the
Currently Reading page, the Writing Project page, and my Goodreads page. These
are the goals I have for now. Again, we’ll see how well I keep these goals as
I’ve not been very good at keeping my blog goals since class started.
As far as life updates go, I’m still
working my way through my classes. We are over halfway through the courses and
I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it. I’m definitely learning things, I’m
just not sure how much of it I’m retaining based on the pacing and styles of
the different courses. Although, I’ve never had a crush on a class before now,
but I am absolutely LOVING this forensics class. It is everything I had wanted
my degree to be, but it wasn’t. That’s about it for now. I’ll keep this updated
as much as possible.
In my previous post about Tor Books I stated that a book came out March 16th, 2019. This is incorrect. The book The Tesla Legacy was actually due to be published tomorrow March 12th 2019. The tweet confirming is quoted below.

I feel like I have a million posts titled Updates. But I’m constantly updating things and being creative with these titles just takes away from all of the other things that I’m doing.
As you can probably see there is a new page title up at the top called Currently Reading which is intended to be a more real time status update for what books I’m reading and what books I’m reviewing. It will have the book I am currently reading, my thoughts, and the most recent quote that has gotten stuck in my brain. It will also have the book I just finished, just the title unless I have comments that need to escape my brain. And finally it will have the book I’m reviewing, whether or not I will do a full review or just a tiny one on Goodreads, and what the progress of the review is.
So that’s the run down of the new page, now for the run down of what’s currently there. I just finished The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken and my brain is so full of nerd comments that I’m not even sure where to begin. I would like to do a full review on this book because it was just so good but if I don’t have the time or the second book ruins the vibe I’m feeling with this one. It’s such a good book, at least for me right now in my current state of mind.

So I’ve done a small overhaul of the website. I’ve updated all of the pages and added a new one. Please leave comments about whether or not the changes are something you like or dislike or if you have any suggestions.
To my regular readers:
Hello. So one of my classes has an option for bonus points involving a digital commonplace book. (More information here: How to Keep a Digital Commonplace). We could use whatever platform we chose for this digital commonplace book, including a WordPress blog. Since I already have this here, and since it already was a commonplace book of sorts, I decided to just add content to this instead of creating a whole new blog for it.
What this means:
- I will probably be posting more frequently. (Hopefully, once or twice a week at least.)
- It will probably not be completely book review related.
- It will probably not be only books.
- It will probably include new things like block quotes and other stuff that I have never actually bothered to figure out how to use.
- Comments will probably happen, and maybe even actual discussions. (Which I’m totally cool with.)
To my professor/classmates:
Hello. Commonplace only posts will be tagged with commonplace. They will be filed in that category. If you’re looking to see if I posted something specifically to that, there should be a search option for it. Feel free to ignore the other tabs, all posts should pop up on home. Feel free to ignore or explore my Goodreads and Twitter (adds and follows welcome). Feel free to ignore the comment section (shows up when you click on the post title), and the other random people who may show up on this blog. It doubles as a review blog for people who have sent me ARC’s and such. Which also means feel free to ignore the reviews that might be in between the commonplace posts. Also, please refrain from using last names or locations if you please as there are creepy people on the internet.
Your friendly blogger/classmate/student,
So… college is a thing. Which means no posts, or books, or anything really. I have A BUNCH of wip reviews that I might finish if I have the down time. So… that’s what’s happening.
It’s official I have changed the layout of my Amazing books page. It is now a list of all time favorites with a book of the month.
So I’ve been thinking about making a few changes to the layout of this blog. I have different pages obviously, and one of them has a list of my favorite books. But that is probably going to get a little long after a while. So I’m not sure whether I want to change it to an all time favorite list with maybe a book of the month or something of that sort. Opinions? Suggestions?

Alright so I have not been very active in anything, whether it be this blog, the roleplay sites that I’m on, and tumblr. Well that is because I have been watching Vlogbrothers videos like a lot of them because there are 977 and I don’t even know how many of those I’ve watched… I think it’s at least a hundred or more. So that is what I’ve been doing and is what I will continue to do until I have watched them all. (I will post links to every single thing I talk about in the bottom of this post). Now the thing called Nerdfighters is basically a huge community of their fans which can be found in multiple ways. There’s youtube, the ning, and a whole bunch of other cool things. I absolutely love them and you should go watch videos because they are fun, granted watching all of them might be a little crazy so don’t do that unless you don’t like sleep or have an insane amount of time.
Alright so that is only one thing that I’ve been doing for the majority of the week is earning Kellebrities points. They are part of Kelly Clarkson’s new rewards system that will give you cool prizes and stuff. Which is awesome because I’m a HUGE fan and cannot afford awesome stuff after already buying all of her cds (which are also in the prizes). From this, I got the most amazing google chrome skin ever! Unless of course someone has one that features any of the things that are in the picture above my homepage.
As before I mentioned that I have other things to be doing, like roleplaying and tumbling (I don’t know if that’s a real word or not but I’m making it one so it is). All of the sites that I roleplay with are on the sidebar in little picture link things (the sites call them affs.). My tumblr is crazy so I wouldn’t really recommend looking at it unless you want to be drawn into my insanity. But if you do there’s a link in the links section of this post.
I also have books that I’m reading, and books I am writing with Camp NaNoWriMo, and grad. parties because I just graduated high school, and college stuff to do, and movies that I’ve seen, and other stuff like that. So yeah I’ve been busy, also there are charities that I’ve been trying to raise money for (unsuccessfully might I add).
That’s what I’ve been doing, and this post is very uninteresting and a huge block of text but I don’t really care because if you love me you’ll read it anyway. The aforementioned links are just below this sentence in a list, and have a wonderful rest of your day and hopefully you’ll see more posts if you care.
Also, since I have shoved so many different teasers about stuff I’m writing, if you want like a chapter posted as a post, I will consider it just comment on this and tell me that you would like to read something and then I’ll make a poll and put it in a post and you can vote on which you would like to read. But for now: comments make for a happy blogger so comment!
