A New WIP, A Finished Constellation, & Studying Begins! – The February Wrap Up

Posted March 2, 2020 in Checking In // 6 Comments

GUYS GUYS GUYS GUESS WHAT. Winter is almost over. Here in Massachusetts, we probably still have a solid month of snow and cold and misery but THEN spring will be here!  And while, yes, I realize that really just adds mud into the mix, I’m still pleased.  I like the visual aesthetics of winter, but it really makes me hate leaving the house.  Particularly in the morning to go to work.  Also driving home in the dark is a major bummer.  I’m over it! Still, there was a lot of good to February, so lets get down to it! The Monthly Haul […]

This was a good idea, don’t get me wrong.  It has helped me focus a bit more on […]

  This book has just enough dystopia in it to get me excited. Lia Kahn is not a likable protagonist. She is that stereotypical popular bitch that is too pretty, too rich, too perfect. Until she got into a life-changing car accident that killed her body and her memories have been downloaded into an android – her parents’ last futile hope of saving their daughter. The idea is brilliance. I even relatively enjoyed the writing style. What I didn’t enjoy was the preachiness. All dystopia books have a level of preachiness; it comes with the territory. There are, however, different […]
