Hey all! For those who don’t know, audiobooks are the primary format through which I read. It’s an ADHD thing. Weirdly, I also prefer subtitles when I’m watching things. *shrug*
Though I still have to use Audible for some things (stupid Audible exclusives), the majority of my books come from the library (via Libby/Overdrive) or from Libro.fm. Libro.fm is a great alternative to Audible. Where Audible supports Amazon, Libro.fm supports independent bookstores. Libro.fm also has a variety of referral and partnership programs. Anyone with an account can benefit from referrals; if people sign up for a membership with your link, you then get a free credit. If anyone wants to sign up, feel free to use my referral link. : )

This year I’m planning to participate in Buzzwordathon (or Buzzword Reading Challenge) 2022. Here’s how Buzzwordathon is supposed to work, according to creator Kayla from Booksandlala:
“The Buzzword Readathon (#buzzwordathon) is a monthly readathon, running the first week of each month (1st through 7th). Each month has a designated word/word theme and you have a week to read as many books as you like with that word in the title. Alternatively you can complete this as a year-long reading challenge, and read just ONE book each month featuring the monthly buzzword until you complete the whole challenge!”
I’m tweaking the challenge a bit. Instead of just reading one book a month, I’m treating it as twelve challenges I can fulfill whenever throughout 2022. Last year, I ended up backloading the year and read five books for Buzzwordathon in December. This year I get the feeling I’ll frontload the year, but I’m okay with that.

Hi! I’d say I’m back but let’s be real, I make no promises. I want to write a blog post today, so that’s what I’m doing. If writing blog posts keeps being a thing I want to do, maybe (hopefully) you’ll see more of these in the near future.
This month, I decided I want to participate in the PopCulture Readathon. It is running for the entire month, and this round the theme is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an eARC in exchange for my honest thoughts.
(I mean, I still ended up waiting until it was out and borrowing the audiobook from my library. But still, I’m grateful.)

At the end of 2018 I wrote a post detailing some things I wanted to do in 2019, and I did… none of them. XD Grad school and mental health really kicked my butt this year. One of these things is now resolved… I’m a Master of Library and Information Science! My health is still a mess, but I’m hoping this will be the year things start coming together. One thing I hope will help me feel better is creating content. So, let’s look at my ideas from last year, whether I’ll be carrying them over, and new ideas I hope will help.

In case you didn’t know, I’m part of the Spellhacker Launch Crew and now that I’ve got some free time I’m excited to be able to read what other folks have been doing! Two other members of the crew have made a book tag (The Tsundoku Chronicles and La Petite Pritt) so I’m mashing them together in one post. ^_^

Destiny tagged me in her most recent Sunshine Blogger Award post!
CWs: claustrophobia, body modifications, body horror, underwater scenes, slow-burn suspense, violations of bodily autonomy, violations of trust, isolation and the resulting mental health decline, moments when you’re not sure you can trust your own mind
Rep: Gyre is queer. Em is queer and a mixed-race WOC. I also feel like Gyre might have ADHD really similar to mine and Em might be autistic, but it is not confirmed on page. It is very strongly my head canon.

I received a free e-ARC from Edelweiss for review. I proceeded to buy the paperback and audiobook I loved it so much.
