July, thankfully was a much calmer/quieter month, although this might be because I pretty much kept to myself. I had some ups and downs in my mood and had a lot of things to think about. And I was also busy with the blog, Storytellers on Tour and SPFBO. I promise I'll stop fiddling with the blog design one day... But I quite like the new header images, so... *shrug*
I have been reading for a long time, I do tend to get excited and occasionally think some big fabulous plot is happening, only to have it not be as grand as my imagination. So, when I do read something that pushes those boundaries and let’s my imagination run with possibilities, and after a few surprises, I feel that it just might be clever enough to be actually going in that way - then, I am impressed. I have a lot of praise for a story that can do that. So, here is me praising this story, for letting me, let my imagination, run wild. Despite a rocky start, the…
With July summer heath came as well and I'm not a happy queen. Especially becaue I'm stuck inside and I still have 6 weeks to go until our vacation trip. Ugh. I'm already done with this season. On a more a positive note, we have a lot of books to read and some other content as well to keep ourselves and you entertained.
Hoo boy, June was A MONTH. And we are only halfway through 2020. It started with me working my ass off to get the blog ready for the moving. That is, we moved RockStarlit BookAsylum from Wordpress.com to a self-hosted Wordpress site and if I can say so, it looks fucking great. Which is only fair, as I worked more on this than I care to admit. On the day before the final move I basically sat before my screen for 12 hours straight to make sure everything is as it should be. And that was only the last day. But thankfully everything went well and to celebrate we announced…
It's hard to believe it's already June, but on the other hand, it's hard to believe it's only June. 2020 sure is a year. If I had to describe my plans for this month: same old, same old. Work, blog, organise, read, repeat. To have some fun, I'll try to put a bit more effort into my Instagram account. I have a couple of ideas how to show off my current reads and yes, all of them are going to involve at least one of my plush pandas. That's my brand, deal with it. :P As usual, I have all kinds of things planned for this month as well, though…
March definitely wasn't good for my mental health. I had more downs than ups, and the fact that my wages got dropped for the time being didn't improve things, that's for sure. It was also my blog anniversary month and it honestly didn't go as well as I hoped which by the end of the month left me totally unmotivated toward blogging.
In Part 2 Faye decides to go to the aqueduct where she spent a big part of her childhood, dreaming to be a harmoniser. But then suddenly another discord appeared and spoke. Find out what happens next!
September came and went, and we are one month closer to the end of the year. September started off on a really bad note for me, but thankfully things got considerably better in a few days and overall the month was a blast. Aside from personal stuff, I've read quite a few books, hosted a giveaway in celebration of my 6 monthsversary as a blogger and tried to avoid thinking about October. Yay!
This year I'm taking part in SPFBO as an advisor for Fantasy Book Review's judging team. I decided to offer a spot to the authors in our group. The spotlight today shines on Justin Lee Anderson.
