Mid-Month Reading Update


It feels like it's been forever since I last wrote a post! I know my last post wasn't that long ago because I always plan and have posts for a few weeks in advance, only I ran out! Eek! 

I've not been reading a lot. I've been gaming and trying to work with my kiddo on her meds. That's a large trial! Her old meds aren't working anymore, and she's not doing well. So hopefully things will settle when we get to talk to her doctor at the end of the month. 

I've been gaming a lot. Playing things like, Until Dawn, Animal Crossing, and replaying some Horizon on the new PS5. I'm loving these games! 

I've also been writing! I got a new little short story that I'm going to post sometime soon. I've been editing another story that I hope to query. Fingers crossed something good will come from that project. 

But I did manage to read a little! I'm halfway through Becoming and I did finish one book! 


***Short Review***

Another entry in the series. Some might find this problematic, so if - for some reason - you want to read this series, be warned.

The problematic element comes in the form of the kickass Jimena. She's a POC that was in a gang and ended up doing time. So she's pretty stereotypical but I do love her sass so much! The rest of the girls would be nothing without her! Also... there was a white dude that called her ghetto but he has a crush on her so it's like it's no big deal...? I cringed hard during that part so I just want to warn those so they don't get hurt or triggered.

So that's a wrap for this one! What have you read so far this month? Any great books to recommend? Let me know! And as always, have a great day!
