There are so many good books coming out this summer! My focus hasn’t been the best lately, so I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get through. But here are a couple of books I’m looking forward to…

A Writer’s Life

Last year was a strange year. I was home from work for several months during the worst of the pandemic and thought I would get a lot of writing and editing done in that time. I definitely picked up some crafty hobbies, like miniature building, and worked a lot on my blog, but my novel felt like…work. Like, I needed to prove I was still a productive citizen of capitalism. And honestly, I think that period of time was a gift in some ways in that it allowed a lot of people to rest and reset. (While simultaneously revealing a lot of devastating structural flaws in our system of government.) At the end of the day, I’m not going to stress myself out over not enough work time put in. I managed to keep my mental health in a relatively good place and that’s really enough for me. I have been trying to put more of an effort into my writing and editing lately and thought I’d share some writerly memes that have made me laugh and kept me sane.

Rainbow Reads: Pride Month Picks

It’s officially pride month and it’s time to do a roundup of my pride picks that release this year (2021). I love that there’s such a diversity of representation in Young Adult LGBTQIA+ books. Every year, it seems to get better, with more and more books with gay, lesbian, bi, trans, queer, intersexual and asexual characters. I even read a Middle Grade LGBT book (Thank A Lot, Universe) this year! This is in no way a comprehensive list, but here are some books I’ve read or plan to read in 2021!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

I had a nice relaxing weekend. It was my first weekend without homework in about six months, so it almost felt like a three-day weekend! I did a game night at my friend’s house on Friday and had some friends over Saturday evening. The rest of the weekend, I just read, rested, did some chores, and watched TV. It was a rainy weekend that was perfect for cozying up inside.
