Monthly Roundup ↪ July👌

So this is late and I know that. BUT I HAVE SOME VERY GOOD EXCUSES!!!

  1. I was packing a lot and doing last minute things because my flight to the UK was first on the 31st of July and then moved to the 3rd of August.
  2. I got sick almost as soon as I landed in London.
  3. My phone got stolen on like my 6th day in the city while I was looking at flats.
  4. Now it’s the 2nd week of August and I went to the Nine Worlds convention.

4 EXCUSES IS GOOD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!

Monthly Roundup ↪ March 📚⛅

This month has been crazy tiring work wise and THEN I got sick and spent a bit of time in hospital, and as all chronic illness kids know, is the fun place to be.

I did manage to read a shit load more than I thought I would which is awesome!! I’m even past the half way point for my 40 book reading goal for the year!!!

Although my new mini goal is to try and read at least half of the books that I currently own before I head back to the UK for my masters in the fall. Which is actually a lot of books as well. So uh, that should prove to be an interesting challenge…

Didn’t finish my stack of short books again… But I was reading longer books too so I think that’s a good enough reason!!!!!!!! Maybe March will be the month I finish the stack and finally get to dive headfirst into my Unread section of my home library, as well as local library.

I also thought of doing a mid month book haul post, as I got a bunch of library books as -*well as bought a few second hand ones, but it’s now march so… it doesn’t…. feel like… there’s…. much……. point…………

I made a Hanukkah themed Book Tag if any of y’all are interested!! Make sure you send me a link of your completed tag, whether it’s a text post or a video! I’d love to see it!

Also I’m in Singapore which means biblical thunderstorms and flash floods like 4/5 times a week. Which is really nice when you’re hiding indoors so you don’t get wet in what is warm rain that sometimes can feel like pee. “Winter” in the tropics of South East Asia is weird. We have snow themed  decorations everywhere, yet we are either sweating like mad or hoping the torrential rain won’t delay the bus system.

Falling In Love With Hominids by Nalo Hopkinson [Review]

Falling in Love with Hominids presents over a dozen years of Hopkinson’s new, uncollected fiction, much of which has been unavailable in print. Her singular, vivid tales, which mix the modern with Afro-Carribean folklore, are occupied by creatures unpredictable and strange: chickens that breathe fire, adults who eat children, and spirits that haunt shopping malls.
