Writers of the Future Vol. 38 ARC Review (Part II)

Back for a second round! You know the drill by now, so if you need to catch up and read Part I here, you may do so, but otherwise, it’s on with the show! “The Daddy Box” by Frank Herbert TW: physically abusive relationships, mild language, innuendo Spoilers–I’m not a big Frank Herbert fan. SoContinue reading “Writers of the Future Vol. 38 ARC Review (Part II)”

White Hart Renaissance Festival 2022

So to say there has been chaos in my home lately is an understatement. There has been chaos. Understatement made. But it’s also June! And for those of you who don’t know, June is the month when I read far too much, hunt for fireflies, and watch the Days, hours, minutes and seconds until nextContinue reading “White Hart Renaissance Festival 2022”

Writers of the Future Vol. 38 ARC Review (Part I)

It’s finally here! A huge thank-you to the lovely folks at GalaxyPress and Writers of the Future for including me in the advanced reader group for the third year running. I might be a little excited about this. But since I’ve gushed over how much I love the WOTF anthology and contest plenty enough before,Continue reading “Writers of the Future Vol. 38 ARC Review (Part I)”

Bookmarked Update/Book Haul

So it’s been two weeks since I promised I was back from Ye No-Blogging Land. In my defense, all that running off of matcha tea, music, and pure spite energy may have finally caught up with me. I got sick. Yeah. It wasn’t fun. Which is why I’ve been doing a lot of nothing. DrinkingContinue reading “Bookmarked Update/Book Haul”

ARCs, Recommends, and Giveaways! (and one very sleepy violinist)

So teakettles and dragon scales! Off we go again on Part II of my incredibly belated Dragonfest 2021 recap. Let’s just pretend it’s going to be well worth the wait. To set the scene (for those readers who have understandably forgotten): It is October 31. I am at one of my favorite places in theContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap, Part II”

The Sword Umbrella

So most of the time I think my life is pretty boring. I get up in the morning, have tea and a bagel, classes, violin rehearsals, work, I read books, cry over Silmarillion fanart. Okay, mostly boring. Except for the violin parts. Ordinary life is ordinary life. So I don’t post about it, because whoContinue reading “The Sword Umbrella”

Dragonfest Recap

So I was in the news again. Not because I robbed a bank or anything, although I am wearing a mask that hides most of my face. A photographer happened to catch me and my violin in the company of a pirate. Sword-shopping, if you want to know. It’s Dragonfest 2021 recap time, everyone. SoContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap”

Book Review: Mechanics of the Past

So who’s up for a book rant about alchemy, childhood trauma, steampunkery and necromancy? Oh yeah, there’s also a giant rabbit. Refill your tea tankards and grab your cuddliest plushies, because here comes a novel centered around the question “What if instead of ‘Who wants to live forever,’ or ‘Can we change lead to gold,’Continue reading “Book Review: Mechanics of the Past”

ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37 (Part II)

So as promised, here is the second half of my Writers of the Future Vol. 37 review. If you missed the first post, you can read it here. Or just go out of order and read this post and then that one. Sometimes it’s a backwards day. Right. I don’t have anything else important toContinue reading “ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37 (Part II)”
