I’m home from vacation!

Hey y’all!

If you recall earlier this week I had mentioned writing posts using the WordPress app on my phone, and how it was… a bit clunky. ๐Ÿ˜… I was using the app since I was away from home on a much needed vacation. The original plan was to write all of my posts ahead of time and schedule them nicely so I didn’t need to do too much while away, but of course that didn’t happen. xD

So I spent some time in sunny Florida and pretended summer isn’t disappearing here at home. AND I EVEN MANAGED NOT TO GET SUNBURNED! And my feet didn’t fall off despite walking about ten miles each day on average. Compare that to my usual two-ish miles a day at best and, uh, it was a change.

But did I manage to read? Welllll…. not really. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Typically for me, a vacation or trip is pretty much synonymous to time spent reading. Even on my most active overseas explorations, there’s usually lots of time on trains, planes, buses, or at local parks to crack open a book. This time, I focused on intense daily activities that didn’t leave much time or energy for reading! I was usually out and about for 14-15 hours each day. It was really different than how I usually operate, but so much fun! I will definitely be doing it again.

Besides: it’s getting colder where I live and that means soon I won’t want to go outside and walk ten miles day. There will be plenty of time for reading. ๐Ÿ˜Š

The best small things

Hey y’all! I’m just over here celebrating because I managed to snag a copy of No Words by Meg Cabot! It’s always a delight to be able to pick up a new book that I’ve been looking forward to. With this one, I got extra lucky: the library holds were all super long, but I found a less-popular digital format and was able to borrow it right away!

(EPub. It was ePub.)

I’ve already plowed through a third of it by the pool last night and am about to dive back in (har har). Hopefully this Fast Forward Friday book was worth the hype!

Trying new things!

Fun fact: I wrote the entire last post on my phone!

I do not recommend it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I ended up with about six drafts that just appeared as I kept messing up with the editor. The conflict between a “classic” block and the new block format was rough. I think I got there though! ๐Ÿ˜Š

The fact that I was able to was pretty great though, even if it took some bumbling to work out. If there are any issues with yesterday’s post, this is likely why. I’ll have computer access again soon!

Beast Boy & my Teen Titans obsession

Hey y’all,

If you missed my recent Fast Forward Friday about it, Beast Boy Loves Raven came out yesterday! Oddly though, I actually hadn’t yet read Beast Boy, the second in the series. I’ve had a line on it from the library since it came out last year. I’ve looked at it multiple times and thought, I’m so excited to read this. I read a sample of it in Raven and couldn’t wait, yet once I had the chance, I WAITED!

I’m so glad I did though. ๐Ÿฅฐ I finished Beast Boy this morning and was 100% in love with Gar. I hated that I had turned the last page because I desperately wanted to continue on the journey with him!

So THANK GOODNESS that Beast Boy Loves Raven had just become available! I dove immediately into it and plowed through in one sitting. One l o n g sitting, because I kept going back pages to check out the details, or examining all the background elements and characters. If you loved the others, you will preeeetty much definitely love this one. I really hope we see more of Tank and Stella from Beast Boy because I kind of fell in love with them too. Yet the monkey sticks around??
