February Wrap Up – 2018

month wrap up

Well I’m a hot mess.

For sure im going to place approximately 34.45% blame for my reading failures on the fact that february is like 3 days shorter than it //should// be. I totally would have been able to finish 3 books in that time. pshhh, do you even know me?

On a completely unrelated topic, why are some months 31 days while february remains being the ugly duckling?? IS THERE A REASON FOR THIS THAT IM UNAWARE OF???

beware: 80% of the “reviews” listed below are not actually reviews and actually just a jumbled mess of a few words

Technically, it looks like I had an amazing reading month since well, I had so many high rated reads but, but, but, let’s also bring to attention the fact that practically ALL of them are rereads.

Rereads are good okay.

Also, only 10 books 😐

who. am. I????

Anyways, I’m going to try and push March to be a hella productive reading month but we’ll seeeeeeeee. Good luck to everyone and i hope your march is filled with 5 star reads and warm socks.

The Rising Author Tag

tags

I knew there would be a point in my life when i would regret befriending this duck and i think i have found it. It’s right now.

SHE’S FORCING ME TO SPEAK ABOUT MY WIP OH MY GOD I DIDNT SIGN UP FOR THIS

Checkmate, may, checkmate. i better get an arc for this

feather 2

~ What is your current WIP about, and what’s its status? (ie. plotting, writing, editing, etc.) ~

Yeesh, it seems like we’re gonna be talking a whollleeee lot about this trash story today yikes. My current WIP which is taking me absolutely forever and even i’m confused what it really is, so i’m just gonna paste the synopsis i wrote for Nano and if you have any complaint, blame past me:

Set in historic Middle East, a girl searches for her family under the cloak of night. Her parents and brother are forced into a life of slavery and as years pass by, her desperation to find them grows more critical.

I’m still in the process of writing the first draft! Yay for me! It’s been so long someone send help I need to get it done. Im about like 75% done with the length but ughhghghg idk how to end books.

feather

~ Do you plot things out and/or outline, or just figure it out as you write? ~

I mean generally….i plot things out in the head and ill make little jot notes on my rough, rough draft to re-jog my memory when the time comes. But yeah, im not like those super prepared people who have these huge detailed outlines (honestly I wish I was, it would save me from so many headaches)

feather 2

~ What are some book ideas you want to write in the future? ~

😐

I have a lot of those. Like a lot.

I really want to be exploring my culture both in fantasy and in contemporary. Not sure how im going to be able to manage it with the pace im leading right now but hey a girl can dream.

I’ve also written about mental illnesses when I was younger and even tho theyre total trash (im taking all the awful tropes, and my writing was horrid) it is something super important to me and I’d likkkkeee to write about it more….i just probably need to do a lot more research.

Great, more homework for me.

Sunshine Blogger Award Part Something

tags

A cute little sunshine human being who also goes by the name of emma tagged me in her epic collection of questions and in that post she imparts a lot of emma-knowledge onto us, so like i would highly suggest you go read it.

So, I was prioritizing my posts so that I would get blog posts done in the order that i was tagged but then i saw the first question of this tag and LITERALLY JUST REREAD A FAV SO I CANNOT GIVE THIS CHANCE UP WHILE IT IS IN FRONT OF ME!!!

flower

~ 1. Kiss, marry, kill: The main characters of the last three fiction books you read.

The last three books i’ve read are:

FINALLY SOMETHING IS GOING RIGHT IN MY LIFE BC IVE WANTED TO MAKE THIS OFFICIAL SINCE FOREVER.

okay

so

clearly, i’m marrying the hell out of Khalid from the Wrath and the Dawn. FADKLFA IT’S OFFICIAL KIDS, YOU’RE ALL INVITED

I’d kiss James from Midnight at the Electric (he’s not a main character and he only gets like 3% page time, but im sure as hell not kissing bristly miss adri and james is so cute and sad he breaks my heart)

annnddd i feel really bad killing Joe from Moonrise bc hes so bloody tragic and so is his story but i have no other options im sorry im not a bad person.

arrow

~ 2. Would you rather be an elegant princess/prince type character in a fairytale, or a witchy badass villain?

we all know i’m probably going to be the princess type even tho i wanna be the witchy villain 😦 poor me

month wrap uphello hello,

What is this you ask?? May actually posting after missing for an uncountable amount of time (y’all are probably like, new blog who dis??) but if anyone did care, I am back from my unplanned hiatus and i hope i’ll be back to making more book content and maybe also updating my blog (its looking kinda drab here, ladies)
