Those of you who know me or have been following my blog for a bit (hi, and thanks, loves 😉 ) may or may not know that I’m a terrible procrastinater and a person who really shouldn’t have the title of writer. I mean, the thing is I don’t actually write most of the time?? Or any of the time??? Nevertheless! I still call myself a writer. Even though the highest I’ve probably ever reached on a project is maybe like … 35k? I’m not even sure, I’d probably have to go check.
Even though my actual qualifications are … somewhat doubtable (shhhh. Don’t tell) I’m joining in with the monthly Beautiful People by the lovely Cait and Sky at Paperfury and Further Up and Further In (respectively). The theme this month is Author Writing Progress Edition
so I’m hoping I actually have some answers??
Hello, lovelies! I can’t believe it’s already the second week in July. Now that I’ve finally gotten through all the blog tours and such,* Penumbra can finally just chill a bit, so I’m going to update you on my boring life! *streamers explode* *people cheer*
Anyway, June was a pretty packed month and July promises to be another one so … I did loads of stuff. Which I can now ramble to y’all about if you’re so kind as to listen.** *runs away laughing evilly*
*Which I have to admit were fun, if a bit stressful. Hopefully I still have some hair after tearing it out and rushing to read books and write posts after vacation for a while?? Who knows.
**Or even if you don’t listen. That’s still chill.
That’s right folks, yet another blog tour! I promise this is the last blog tour for a while
it better be, for my sanity … so we’ll be back to regular posting soonish but before that happens I must introduce you to The Coronation by Livy Jarmusch!
Hello, lovelies! So I have exciting news: The Twin Arrows by the lovely Kate Willis was released today! What’s also exiting for me is that I had the lovely opportunity to read an ARC for review so now I can ramble on about my thoughts to y’all. 😉
ABOUT THE BOOK
Two children. Two journeys. Twin arrows.
Ryla follows her father’s parting instructions as closely as she carries his gift. Her protectors are kind, and safety is certain inside the convent’s strong walls. But now she must leave and what lies ahead is uncertain…
Her brother Drewin won’t wait any longer. The knight promised to escort him isn’t coming, and gossiping neighbors threaten to reveal his identity. He strikes out on his own, sure he can outrun the danger…

*bounces around* Hello, loves! I’m back from vacation and thus can actually get on here with ease again! Did y’all miss me? 😉
Anyway, what’s really more important is that there is currently a beautiful blog tour going on for Kellyn Roth’s books The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective! (Which happen to be the same books I did the cover reveal for a bit ago … And what’s even better is that I get to be a part of it! *throws confetti around* I’m seriously pretty pumped though to be able to ramble about these books to anyone who cares to read this post … Plus I even interviewed the lovely author. So let’s get into that …
Hello loves! For those of you who don’t know I am currently driving many many miles as of about … four in the morning today.
No, I didn’t write and publish this all as I was both sleeping/driving/sitting in a car. Yes, this is a scheduled post from a couple of days ago because packing is a pain and I will die.
So, on the subject of packing, I have come to help all y’all poor unfortunate souls with tips that I learned the hard way as I tried to pack around sixty books to bring on my two-week long vacation.
It’s a commonly known fact that bookworms like munching on books. At least in some sense. It’s slightly less commonly known that they also have to (and like) eating other types of nourishment.
But eat we do, and most of us enjoy food immensely, though obviously not as much as books.*
But what do bookworms even eat? Will the world ever know this deep and dark secret??
The answer to that question is simple: No.
Wait … possibly yes, depending on if I a self-proclaimed full-blooded bookworm even happen to have this exclusive knowledge.**
*The books with food actually in them are probably the best, as they combine two of our loves.
**Which I really shouldn’t as I’m obviously not trust worthy.
