A Chat (Blood and Ash + Writing Rambles + Shadow & Bone)

It’s been a hot minute since I did an actual blog post. So I just wanted to have a chat with you. 

I’ve been editing two of my novels so I can query them. I’ve also been editing another story I wrote years ago for Wattpad. It’s one that I just don’t think could ever get published but I still like the story, figured why not share it?

I’ve been reading a lot! Just finished a 600-page book in two days and then started devouring the next in the series. I ADORED From Blood and Ash and loved the first half of the second one, but then there was mention of a threesome... I’m just not into that. I even spoiled myself to see if it happens in the third one. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen in the series. It would just ruin this series for me and I’d hate that because From Blood and Ash was just perfect! I have no complaints about it! I will be posting a review soonish.

So I’m hoping this series can stay epic and not fall into the dark depths of Hades. Yes, I can be overly dramatic, but I really hope she doesn’t add a threesome. This may not be popular anymore but in romance books I like Alpha guys. Which is hilarious because in actual life I can’t stand Alpha dudes. Makes no sense to me, honestly.

With my writing, I’ve found this new program called ProWritingAid and I’ve been LOVING it! When writing, I have the worst habit of writing passively and ProWritingAid finds all those mistakes and helps me correct them! I’ve been running my novels through it to help with editing. It does all the basic things also like grammar but it also tells sentence length, grade reading level and so much more! It’s not cheap, but I feel it was an excellent investment. 

I’ve yet to watch Shadow & Bone on Netflix but I know everyone is raving on it. I never read Six of Crows so I’m kinda on the fence. Plus, I loved the Dark One and not Mal... So I’m not sure if I’ll watch it. Have you seen it? Did you like it?

So what have you read recently? Anything good? Let me know! I’m still hunting for great vampire books so if you got any, please leave them below! 

I guess that’s it for this post. I hope you stay safe and have a great day!
