The Impact of Books on my D&D Journey

I know I’ve mentioned it on Bookstagram, and included my weekly game in my Monday schedule for the personal side of things. But I don’t think I’ve talked a lot on my blog about my love of Dungeons and Dragons! I have long been a fantasy reader, and dragons were one of my earliest fantasy […]

Monday Schedule: 6/1 – 12/1

Hi bookworms and welcome to the start of a new week! I’ll be totally honest, I don’t have that much planned for the week. Last week I had a lot of stuff to catch up on, but now I’m out of those things and not sure if I have the energy to invent some good […]

Ebooks, yay or nay?

I used to be a purist. When I was about fourteen, my godparents gave me a Kindle for Christmas and after I politely thanked them, I put it away and forgot I owned it for a year. I used it only sparingly for several years and only really started using its full potential last year. […]

Deerbrook 3/4 Update

The rising action that I could see emerging previously has come to a head! There was actually a very dramatic chapter in which there was stone throwing, lots of arguing, and a burned effigy… There are now two major conflicts in the plot: Hope’s romantic feelings, and Enderby’s. Much of the novel has been concerned […]

3/4 Update: Atlantis

This book started out so promising… Now, it’s not a jaunty archaeological adventure through the city of Atlantis (excuse me, I have a Disney movie to watch). It’s somehow a thriller political novel? There aren’t any spies, but there’s Kazakh gangsters who’ve created a sanctuary for terrorists and are using that to…pillage museums and ancient […]

2/4 Update: Atlantis

This update is a lot less optimistic than the last one… The plot has definitely lost me in the drudgery of details at this point. Many of the negative reviews for the novel complain that there are parts that read as though they’re straight from a technical manual, and yes I’ve started to see that. […]

1/4 Update: Atlantis

Note: I have decided that while I will update my tumblr blog with more frequent updates (beesandbooks1.tumblr.com) for this blog I will post updates once I have reached quarter marks through the book before posting a final review of its entirety after I have finished. So far, the plot is engaging, but that might have […]
