What have I finished reading recently?

Dice: The Cube that Changes Everything – This manhwa isn’t finished yet, and I had started it a few years ago, but it took me until now to finally catch up to the current chapters.


What am I currently reading?

Of Myth and Shadow by Matthew S. Cox – This is a hell of a long book, but I am slowly making my way through it. I received a copy for a book tour and hopefully plan on finishing it soon.

The Lost Queen – I accidentally requested and was approved for the second book in this series, so I picked up the first one. It’s a bit of a slow read but I imagine I will be done by this weekend.


What will I read next?

This is a tough one because there are so many books I want to read next. I haven’t decided which I will read first, but my next two options are:

Heir of Doom by Jina S. Bazzar – The author contacted me directly for this one and I enjoyed the first in the series. I am hoping the second one is just as good!

Mo Dao Zu Shi by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu – This was recommended to me by a blogging friend of mine Kat (please check her out she’s brilliant). It seems like it would be really interesting even though its a bit outside my regular reads.


What about you, what are you reading now? I’m always looking to add more books to my list to read, so I am open to suggestions.

Short Update on My Life

Hello dear readers, today’s post will be short, I promise. I just wanted to give you a brief update on my life, since I think you are entitled to know what I am going through.

I have been lucky enough to have a new job that I just started this week. I know a lot of people are out of work right now, and many more are strapped for cash, but I have been lucky enough to be hired into a position with a really awesome non-profit where I live.

I have been working from home and will likely be doing that until September. It’s a bit odd getting used to that still, but I have figured out a good routine that keeps my mind spaces separate.

With a new job comes a lot of learning and a lot less time to myself. I have been trying my best to better my skills and focus on my work, and I plan to keep doing that for my job. This however will likely leave me with less time on social media through the day.

I will try to engage with people in the morning before work and during my breaks, but otherwise the amount of social media time I will have will be drastically reduced. I’ve been taking up at 6:00 a.m. every day in order to do some writing. It’s not much, but I’ve been getting about 400 words done a day.

I plan to keep the frequency of blog posts the same, since I usually write those the night before anyways.

Anyways, that’s all really. I am staying safe and healthy, and doing my best to support BLM movements that I can afford to. The biggest thing is to read and learn. Learn what you can do better, learn how you can help, learn others’ pain.

When we understand others, even just a tiny amount, we better ourselves as humans and as a society.
