I’m trying to slide back into posting regularly since my mind isn’t totally against it right now. So I’m hoping my reading picks up because I’ve only read 4 books and none of them have been very lengthy.
- Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire – Goodreads – This one wasn’t my favorite but I quite enjoyed it nonetheless. You can check my review here, it does have some spoilers for book one so don’t read it unless you’re okay with that!
- In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire – Goodreads – This one might just be my favorite of the series! It checked all of my boxes for portal fantasy worlds that I would love to be in with it’s structured fantastical nature. My review of this one will be posted on Thursday!
- I Spy the Illuminati Eye by Sheila Keenan – Goodreads – This one is a mixed bag. I think the cover markets it as one thing and it is a bit different on the inside, which makes me think it’s going to be a hard sell for some. It’s about conspiracy theories like the Illuminate and Reptile People, but it focuses on critical thinking and doing research into things before believing them. It has actual history versus the poorly connected theories, and a few little activities to go along with it. I liked it, but I think a lot of parents might skip them one because none of that is on the cover.
- Max & the Midknights by Lincoln Peirce – Goodreads – This is another middle-grade novel I was sent to review, so I’m trying to tackle it now that I”m semi in the mood to read. So far it’s fairly cute. It’s kind of in the same vein of Big Nate, Dog Man, and Captain Underpants.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider – I’m still neck deep in this one, and I’ve discovered picture mode. So I can play with different angles, filters, and expressions when I take screenshots.
Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms – This is an idle game that I’ve been sinking a ton of time into for the past week or so. There isn’t much to it, but I enjoy idle games quite a bit when I’m stressed out. Plus this one is Dungeons & Dragons-based.
Xbox Gamertag – Shadowrose96 (The only multiplayer game I play with any frequency is The Elder Scrolls Online, but I’d love to connect with you if you’d like. I’m always checking out my community feed to see what others are playing)
I’ve also been trying to make a return to drawing. I used to draw almost every day back in school, but when I graduated I sort of slowed down and then I developed hand tremors in college. So I just sort of stopped but I have been seeing others around me enjoying it and I miss it. So I’m trying to do a little one drawing a day, even if it turns out to be hot garbage.
