I have redone my blog and deleted most of my old blog posts. I wasn’t happy with how it was going, plus I learned about how there’s only so much space I can use and freaked out about all the pictures I had up. Pictures aside though (and that’s not to say I won’t post any pictures from here on out, I just won’t have a ton like I used to) I wasn’t happy with my posts or random schedule.
I’m going to try and stick to a schedule and pre-write up posts. I’m thinking Saturday and Tuesday posts. What will I post? Still whatever I want but since I am a reader there will be bookish content. I do more than just read though so there will be other content to. Movies? TV Shows? Games? Life stuff? Random topics?
My May TBR/POP includes:
Magazines. I have Archaeology, Discover, Philosophy, Science Focus, and Wildlife magazines I badly need to catch up on.
Love & Other Disasters by Anita Kelly. I am currently reading this (as I type this). A female/nonbinary romance? Yes please! My nonbinary queer heart is so happy this exists!
On my 30th birthday (i’m 33 now) I made a “40 books to read before 40” and i’m still working on it! It shouldn’t take me until i’m 40 to finish it. From the books on that list I still need to get to i’m thinking To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo, or Like Water Like Chocolate by Laura Esquivel for May.
I’m trying to make my way through all the Goosebumps books I haven’t read yet (or don’t remember reading) and up next is Why I’m Afraid of Bees and Deep Trouble (and then i’d read Deep Trouble II) all by R.L. Stine.
I also have a out of state Brooklyn Public Library card so I read something using that every month.
I am privately doing a couple bingo boards for the year. One was made by someone else and a friend shared with it me, the other I made to make sure i’m reading as diversely as I claim.
For a Neurodivergent author i’m thinking of reading The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde, Get a Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert or Trans Wizard Harriet Porber and the Bad Boy Parasaurolophus by Chuck Tingle.
For first book by a fave author I had some trouble with that as it feels weird to call any other author except R.L. Stine a favorite author because most authors i’ve read 1 book by, but I couldn’t use R.L. Stine because I think that was The Baby-Sitter which i’ve already read, and didn’t like. So, i’m cheating I guess but I can’t see another way to do it, i’m using authors i’ve read 1 book by but I DID love those books so … Anyway for that i’m thinking of Break by Hannah Moskowitz or Believe Like a Child by Paige Dearth.
For mental health rep i’m looking at Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow, Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall or Coral by Sara Ella.
I’m also re-reading the Saga series to prepare for volume 10, and I was trying to re-read them faster until I saw volume 10 won’t be out until late October. Next up on my re-reading is volume 5.
I do have 2 pages filled with a lot of possibilities in my bullet journal but I don’t want to be overwhelming here lol. Also of note, it’s Mermay!
Pile of Possibilities means I don’t *have* to get to anything specifically, these are all just possibilities!
Speaking of possibilities though i’m also trying to work on watching stuff since i’m so bad with that!
I’m in the middle of watching The Nightmare on Elm Street series. I’ve watched the first 3 so far. As mentioned it’s also Mermay. I have started The Skull Man on Hidive, only watched 3 episodes so far. Other shows I would like to maybe watch include: Leave it to Geege, My Pregnant Husband, Everything’s Gonna be Okay, Our Flag Means Death, and Special. All of these are either about being autistic or queer!
I also love to play Sims 2 and don’t play that enough so there is that to. I have other games I should probably play though … lol.
