Best Book Read This Year

If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann. I need more of Winnie. I really enjoyed her first book that I read either last year or the year it came out but I absolutely loved this new one and eagerly await the next book that comes out next year. Even though I’m up to my eyeballs in series I would love to read more about Winnie and find out what’s going on with the grandmother. 

Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far

I don’t really have an answer for this but that could change since there’s going to be a lot more reading going on. I’m just not sure if any of that will be fantasy.

New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To

I really want to read American Demon but I think that’s unlikely because I’d want to go back and do a reread/catch up to get to that. I love this series and until this new book got announced the series was done. But this might be the year when I finally read Mockingjay but of course, I’d want to reread the first two books first and then dive into the new one and I’m curious about her other books. I often find it odd when I hear people talk about loving a series that seem to only read that series by an author.

Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half Of The Year

I’m very interested in Cinderella Is Dead and I’m eager for the third Nevermoor book. I don’t really keep up with new releases. I think Mayhem is another one that has my interest.

Biggest Disappointment

So far I’d say this year is along with Karmageddeon. Books haven’t let me down so far this year.

Biggest Surprise

I guess me enjoying If It Makes You Happy so much. I enjoyed Let’s Talk About Love which caught my eye because of the ace rep and thought I’d probably enjoy this one too but I’d say this book totally solidified Claire Kann as an auto-read author.

Favorite New Author

I sound like a broken record at this point but I’m going with Claire Kann and I’m really enjoying VM Burns books as well. You can find some on Hoopla. The series I read starts with the book The Plot Is Murder.

Newest Fictional Crush

I don’t get fictional crushes but I do get jealous when fictional bookcases are involved.

Newest Favorite Character

I swear I’ve read other books. I think today’s book finished puts me at 76 books but I’m going with Winnie but I need to shout out Nana Jo from VM Burns series. She needs a spin-off series stat.

Book That Made You Cry

All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M Johnson

You need tissues for this one. If you can do audio you should check out the audiobook. I had to switch because it would take me an eternity to get through a five-hour audiobook. I’m almost done reading it.

Book That Made You Happy

I don’t know but I find Sweet Valley High books fun. I’ll just get in the mood and binge away. Sadly I can’t find the next book in the series. It is hilarious that they are still juniors and I’m on like book 115.

Favorite Book To Film Adaption

I don’t really watch movies and now that I think about it I haven’t watched any at all adapted or not. I might give Crazy Rich Asians another chance and maybe watch the movie since it sounds like it should be right up my alley but I’ve DNFed it twice.

Favorite Post You Have Done This Year

I don’t have one since obviously, I don’t do regular book posts here. I might but I just don’t know right now. If I feel like doing one about books I’ll do it. This blog is a creative outlet for me. I had to change my mindset and not fixate on things like numbers and PageRank.

Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought This Year

I’ve bought some Knickerbocker Classics that I really love. I’m been working on adding them to my reading. I just wish someone would help make things easier and start breaking them down into categories instead of the very vague word classic.

Books I Need To Read By The End Of The Year

I don’t need to read anything. I don’t put pressure on myself. If I feel like reading a certain book I will. I did make that list recently of books I’d like to read so I guess that. It mainly depends on my mood. Right now it is all about the cozy mysteries and contemporary and possibly romance. Yes, I randomly bought five Fabio books on eBay. That was my big splurge of like eight bucks counting shipping.

I found this adorable pin on Etsy that’s for BLM and inspired by Care Bears so go and check it out. The proceeds are going to BLM.

Black Etsy Shop Owners List: I’ve found some great things on there so why not do a little retail therapy and help a fellow human being out at the same time.

For ways, you can help. There are links to petitions etc.


Stream To Donate: I’m not sure if they still work since I read that YouTube is yanking them but when I looked they are still up. There are some YouTubers that are giving the AdSense for a video that’s just a regular video.

Found another video where you can help just by playing the video.

Here’s another video that’s a stream to donate sitch.

Watch this video without fast-forwarding to help if you can’t donate.  I’m glad I found that because I wasn’t going to mention that as a way to help not that I have a platform because I figured if anyone saw me say that they would judge me for that because it was a stupid idea. This blog was started as a creative outlet for me and a way to get away from the insanity that I put myself through for years obsessing over a PageRank and how much traffic I was getting. I don’t even know if I have a PageRank since I’ve never checked and don’t plan on doing that and I don’t really advertise it either. 

The newest Dystopian Log Posts are up to date on the page called Dystopian Log which is right below National Poetry etc link. Day 77 was posted this week

Sailor Mood 3 is now out.

Sailor Mood 2 has been unleashed onto the world.

And I give you Sailor Mood. I wonder if the migraine makes things weirder or less coherent than usual. I’m putting the links on the page where I put last year’s links to National Poetry Month. So if anyone is interested check there. I’m not sure how often it will happen.
