Took a break, bought some books, sung about them instead of talking...
Book Twitter is a really toxic place at times. Things got a bit much and I took a break. I finally sat down and talked about how I was feeling.
Oh, also, happy 5 year booktube anniversary to me
I've been playing a LOT of Animal Crossing these days and during it, I find myself thinking about books. Either picturing my life inside the story or just thinking about my time reading it. I thought it would be fun to share a list of the books that I find popping into my head often!
Either I'm forgetful and blind or SOMEHOW I HAVEN'T POSTED A REVIEW FOR HARLEY IN THE SKY YET??
For all I've talked about this book I've managed to just... not actually review it. Which is great. Or maybe I have but I'm doing it again.
If you somehow missed my LOVE for Akemi Dawn Bowman and her newest release, Harley in the Sky, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? IT'S ALL I TALK ABOUT.
But, on a more pressing issue - IT'S OUT. NOW. TODAY. RIGHT THIS SECOND. SO GO BUY IT AND READ IT AND IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH, HERE'S THE LITERAL PERMANENT TATTOO I GOT DEDICATED TO THIS BOOK ON MY BODY
eeek! It's getting even closer until the wonderful Harley in the Sky is released and I cannot wait for you all to get your hands on it!
You may remember back in October I did a tag over on booktube, well this time the lovely Jemma over at Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them has created one for right here on a blog! The original post can be found here but read on below to see my answers!
Unfortunately, my grandad passed away on Sunday 26th of January after just 17 days diagnosis. It's incredibly quick and we're all still in shock and haven't really had it hit us yet. We'd not even wrapped our heads around the situation and then he was gone.
I will have a post up as part of the Harley in the Sky pre-release excitement but after that I don't know when I will next be posting as we're planning the funeral and just taking time to figure everything out. Thank you for all the love and support <3
This is a super short post just to let you all know I won't be posting consistently for the foreseeable future. My grandad got diagnosed with blood cancer two weeks ago. In that time he's went from being admitted into hospital in a relatively normal state to in a hospice and us anticipating The Call.
On Friday we got the prognosis. Not good. Weeks. Months, if that. Monday he was in the hospice, still relatively alright. Wednesday, out of the blue, he was not good. He's deteriorated so dramatically and I'm finding it super hard. I'm exhausted. I'm drained. I'm reading and sleeping and doing nothing much else.
I know it's understandable that I won't be posting much but despite this being a hobby, I still want to be professional, and I don't want people to see my lack of posting and assume I don't care.
So yeah. If and when inspiration strikes and/or I just want a break from life I suppose I will post something but there's no guarantees. No weekly posts or anything for just now.
There are sooooo many amazing sounding books coming out in 2020 and I just cannot wait to get my hands on them. I'm not going to waffle about I'm just going to dive in and tell you about just a couple of my most anticipated releases of 2020!
