May 2022 Wrap Up

May 2022 Wrap Up

May has been a bit stressful from work stuff. In fact I was working some “overtime” the last week or two of May, even though I seem to be in a lull of stuff to do for the projects I’m responsible for. I put “overtime” in quotes because I’m salaried, so I don’t really get…

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

This is written like it’s supposed to be plot-driven, but you can guess what will happen. The twists come from acts, that seem out of character. These moments pull you out of the story. This is probably an unpopular opinion since most reviews I heard about this book were great. I was excited to read the book finally but then had these moments pull me out of the book. This is one series I won’t be continuing.

Audiobooks for Running

Audiobooks for Running

When you go running, they say you should listen to music with somewhere between 120 to 140 beats per minute. This should help you keep a good cadence throughout your run. However, I much prefer listening to audiobooks when I run. Music makes me want to dance, and this could mess up my running cadence…
