’s 2022 Audiobook Listening Challenge

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 is a great alternative to Audible. Where Audible supports Amazon, supports independent bookstores. 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. : )

Buzzwordathon 2022: My version and my TBR

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.

January 2022 TBR: Buffy-themed Readathon

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.

(Very short!) Review for Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

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.)

2020 Goals! Personal, reading, blogging, etc.

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.

Review of The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling

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.

5 of 5 stars

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