Monthly Wrap Up: April 2020

Is it just me, or April really went by fast? It definitely seemed shorter than March. Weird. I definitely had more good days this month, so that's a plus. I also worked on some secret stuff, which was fun. In an "OMG, what the hell am I doing?" way, lol. I also discovered The Unbelievable Truth series on Audible, and since I'm starting my days with audiobooks, I figured listening to something that makes me laugh would actually do some good for me. I'm only 2 days in, but so far it seems to be working. *shrug*

Does Disability Define Me?

This post was originally labelled as A Week in My Head post, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it probably should be published on its own accord. Disability is a topic that we should talk about, because it has many forms and each case is as individual as we ourselves are. So, I decided to repost this article and add a few more thoughts.

The Narrows by Travis M. Riddle

This isn’t the coming age story that you see so often in fantasy; this is what comes after that. It’s all the stuff that hits you when you realize you’ve grown-up and moved on from some of the people who used to know you the best, and they from you. It’s also a story about coming to terms with the regrets of those lost friendships and the grief and that anger that comes from death and loss. Basically, it’s about moving on and what gets left behind in the process.

Interview with Mike Shackle

Originally from London, Mike Shackle has wandered the world before settling in Vancouver, with his wife and two children. His other constant traveling companions around the globe have been his comic books, his favorite fantasy novels and an army of super-hero statues. He more often than not can be found daydreaming over a cup of tea.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

If you are looking for a lighthearted romcom and don't want to think too much, The Flatshare is a perfect pick me up book. With loveable characters - there is a lovely, mishevious little girl, and a hippie older lady who happens to be a rebel -, heavy topics and a budding romance with laugh out loud moments. Beth O'Leary's debut novel is definitely worth a read.

Kitsune by Nicolette Andrews

I don’t mean to sound like I only have complaints - there is a lot to love about Kitsune, and though the story might need a little ironing out here and there, it was a very cool retelling of The Little Mermaid. This would be worth checking out if you are at all interested in retellings, or just looking for some fun stories involving yokais.
