The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

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…

The Choice of Blogging vs Vlogging

I had a YouTube channel once. I think I even have most of the videos I made still out there.

Video is how I get most of my information today, like many others. It’s easy to turn on while doing other things. So why am I back to blogging?

Bye Bye, Goodreads

Bye Bye, Goodreads

Books I’m struggling to finish

Books I’m struggling to finish

In 2019 there were a few books I picked up, and while I had no intention of DNF’ing them, I failed to finish before putting them down for an extended time. I haven’t had much of this issue come up in my reading life until now; and it seems to be coming on strong.

Sunday Post #64: Holiday Craziness

It’s the holiday season, and it’s getting to the point where I think we all go a bit loopy. I certainly had a moment when I went to the grocery store last night and there was basically no milk. I mean none. There were a few of the pint size jugs, but that was it. I’m not talking just the whole or 1/2% either, I mean all of it. Empty. I couldn’t believe it.
