’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. : )

(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.

March 2019 Wrap-up and Stats

A big thing that happened this month is I scheduled my last two terms of grad school. They’re going to be a little busier than I anticipated (what I was planning to do in three terms I’m trying in two) so I’m not going to be continuing any of my regular posts. I’ll do plans or wrap-ups as I feel like. If I do any updates they’ll just be what I’ve read recently (I’ll give the timeframe in the update). I’ll still be keeping track of my reading on Goodreads and posting my bookish thoughts on Twitter. I’ve also got some review copies I’m still planning to review, but I don’t have any schedule idea for that; they’ll happen when they happen.

With that update, here’s some stats for the month!

First March 2019 Weekly Update

It’s been a weird month so far. The first two books in this post I actually finished on February 28th, but after I’d put up my update. Then I didn’t finish anything until March 10th. It’s been a slow start.

Previously I was putting these up on Wednesday because 1) that’s the day everyone else does their WWW Wednesday posts and 2) I have a time block on Wednesday evenings that I can dedicate to writing updates. However, considering my time block is pretty late on Wednesday and I can’t always finish the post then, it makes sense to plan for my updates to go up on Thursdays. So that’s the plan, at least for a while.

The template I’m using for these updates is WWW Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Words and recommended to me by Destiny at Howling Libraries.
