Just Some Updates

Hello everyone! It’s been a hot second since I have posted anything but I just wanted to do some life updates. If you don’t care, then I completely understand but I would appreciate if you stuck around to read this.

First thing I wanted to talk about was my lack of activity. I am about to graduate college the week after this (!!!) so I have obviously been super busy with that. The build has been chaotic but fun, nonetheless. I’m prepping for finals week so it hasn’t given me time to finish any books. I’m currently trying to finish book two of the Themis Files, Waking Gods and I know that the third book is going to be released tomorrow. I’m also reading Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone. That one is a bit longer but I’m very excited to share my thoughts on it. There are some new book releases I’m very excited for that I will be sure to share with you since I will have more time. In the meanwhile, please forgive my on-and-off social media presence. Speaking of that, I do have a twitter now so you can follow me @capt0bvious96 and I will follow you back, I promise.

Next thing I wanted to address was doing more requests. I really want to start engaging more with all of you and would love to start reviewing suggested books. I also really want to start doing movie reviews, if you are interested. I’m really glad you all like my Current Favorites articles so I will definitely do more. The next thing I want to talk about is my favorite tv shows. If you have any suggestions for me, though, feel free to leave them in my comments or now you can tweet at me if you so wish.

The last thing I will talk about is my writing. I’m starting to really get into the swing of this new story I’m writing. If you are at all interested, I would definitely like to do some writing challenges in order to keep myself on track. I’d like to know what writing challenges any of you have done in the past. I am trying to be more consistent with my writing schedules and I will have more time on my hands to do that.

Thanks for sticking around to read this whole thing. I truly appreciate. I know that realistically most of you aren’t too invested but, to those who are, I want to give you my biggest thanks ever. If you are reaching the end of your school year, then I wish you the best of luck on your finals.

 

Updates and a Mini Christmas Haul

Hello everyone! I hope you all had some really enjoyable holidays. Maybe some of you are still celebrating those extended family Christmases or you escaped from the snow for the time being. Regardless, I thought I would brag a little about my Christmas and you can brag back in the comments.

Surprisingly, I did not get any new books for Christmas. I did, however, receive a new copy of a complete Edgar Allan Poe collection and Sherlock Holmes collection. The two new books I got were a collection of Steampunk stories and a collection of short murder mysteries. I did get Christmas money so I will definitely be getting myself some new books.

As for non-book items, I did get an Apple watch which I ended up loving more than I thought I would. I also got a new slew of Harry Potter items, including a hand-made pillow (thanks Mom), a Snitch necklace, and a Ravenclaw storage box. I got a Walking Dead dice game and a Lucille mug. I finally got some Stranger Things merch. Bonus: my sister got me a set of beaker shot glasses and a nerdy cocktail book. Forgive me for not posting pictures because that’s just doing too much. I would love to hear about your awesome Christmas hauls or maybe share what present you gave this year that you were most proud of.

I hope you didn’t mind my bragging. I’m looking forward to a new year with many new books to review. I can’t wait to read your reviews as well. Have a wonderful new year!
