Well, I am proud of myself that I managed to stick to VVV for as long as I did. I’m not giving up on it, I promise, but I just kinda went balls to the wall in June. Between traveling across the country for a wedding and my husband starting a new job, plus the end of school and a friend from far away visiting … Continue reading June 2022 Wrap-Up – Distraction Edition!

And I’m back! After yesterday’s totally self-indulgent rambling about Blade of Tyshalle, I’ve wrapped up my last VVV triad and it’s on to the next. I admitted to cheating in my wrap-up post and listening to the Finn audiobook but it was only like 57 minutes and I was in the car, sue me. If you’re new here, VVV is the Veni, Vidi, Vici book … Continue reading Vigorous Viridescent Valor…Eventually I’m Gonna Run Out of VVV Words…
I often say that this is one of my favourite books, but you know what? No. It’s my favourite. Absolute favourite. I’ve reread it so many times, but it’s been a good six years since the last time, and I felt like this time deserves an actual review. For some reason nobody I talk to knows these books exist and I’m constantly recommending Blade of … Continue reading The Book That’s Always Been There For Me
This month was a weird one. First of all, I don’t know where it disappeared off to. I swear it was just April. I know as we age, time moves faster, but like seriously. May slipped through my fingers like water. Anyway, I got to reading four books this month! I almost managed to squeak in Blade of Tyshalle but I still have a hundred … Continue reading May 2022 Wrap-Up: Creative Inspiration and Torture and Pirate Boning

It’s that time again! I read the books from my non-VVV tbr list and now my ‘Currently Reading’ is ready to be refilled, whoo! Although I wanted to take this opportunity to modify my VVV pledge. As much as it’s been super fun and keeping me doing lots of reading, I’m struggling to find completed serials to add to my list every time. There are … Continue reading The Voracious Vendetta of Virile…Whatever, it’s VVV time!
I am aware that my titles aren’t as funny as I think they are when they pop into my head. I am also aware that it is the 13th of May and somehow I forgot to do an April wrap-up. Gah! And I read so many books in April! Anyway, May has been a catch-up month for a lot of things, but I’m about to … Continue reading April 2022 Wrap-Up: ARCulus Rift
