Monthly Wrap Up – March 2020

Monthly Wrap up

It’s been a heck of a month hasn’t it? I’ve been in self-isolation for fourteen days (I’m free today!) and the country, along with a large portion of the world has gone into lockdown. Times are scary right now and although things been hard we can’t stop enjoying the things we love as long as we do so safely. So here is my monthly wrap up (a little later than usual but here all the same.

Currently Reading.

Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman.
I have been SO excited for this, I really loved The Devouring Gray and I’ve been desperate to read the sequel since before the first book came out so the moment this was delivered I literally opened the package, sat down and started reading. I’m not getting through it as quick as I would like but that has more to do with me finding the time between keeping everything together at home and the amount of time I’ve been playing Animal Crossing for…we’ll come back to that.

Books I’ve read.

Star Wars: Age of Resistance – Villains. My comic book read for the month was quite an enjoyable one and pretty interesting getting a closer look at some of the characters.

Cursed: An anthology of dark fairy tales. I found this book a very mixed bag and this does happen quite often with anthologies I find, that some stories are great whereas some you can’t finish or barely get through and Cursed was very much like that which is why I make sure to review each story individually with a few lines and try to work out an average rating for the book itself. Henry and the Snake Wood Box was my favourite.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelisation. I finished this last week and had planned for the review to go up on Tuesday and then the Wednesday but although I did really enjoy it I just found myself unable to write much last week and couldn’t get the words down. I’ve had much better luck this week and said the review will be out pretty soon.

Changes from TBR

I did pretty well with this I think considering. I read two of the four books I had on my March TBR which is honestly better than I do a lot of the time because I’m such a fickle mood reader! I was lucky to get a copy of The Rise of Skywalker Novelisation early which helped as I didn’t have to choose between reading that or playing Animal Crossing for very long!

Books I’ve brought/received. 

Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare – Decided to order this the day before it came out after deciding I wouldn’t buy it for months beforehand. I caved when I realised there were special first editions.
The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman – GIFTED from Titan books.
Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston – GIFTED from Quirk Books
RWBY Official Manga: Vol 1 – Red Like Roses – Spotted this in Waterstones after having gone in for something else and couldn’t help myself.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker expanded edition by Rae Carson – Again, went into Waterstones for one thing and came out with this.
Emily Eternal by M.G Wheaton – I managed to acquire one of the very pretty arc editions of this from a friend on Twitter.
Dragon Age; Tevinter Nights Anthology – GIFTED from Titan Books
Star Wars: The Queens Shadow by E.K. Johnston – Treated myself to this when I had to go into self-isolation.

Shows I’ve seen.

Picard. I would like to rewind time and watch the entire series again, please? I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this show but now that we’ve seen the whole thing (well, the first series at least) I can say for certain that I loved it. I wasn’t sure it could live up to Discovery for me, which I adored but honestly, it’s just as good just in a different way.

Duck Tales. This is not one I expected to be writing about and not one I’ve seen the whole of as I wasn’t particularly interested, it was more something we put on for my little one to watch, then Chris started watching too as he loved the old series, then I started watching it too and it was actually really good.

Tangled the series. I had been meaning to watch this for ages and with the launch of Disney Plus I have now finally started it and I’m already absolutely loving it. Cassandra is life.

Films I’ve seen.

Nothing new this month I don’t think but I did watch Ice Princess and both Princess Diaries films in one afternoon/evening with Chris about a week into our self-isolation.

Games I’ve played. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I think it was fairly obvious that this section would probably only consist of one game (although I did play a bit of Stardew Valley at the beginning of the month) and honestly, this game has been the main reason I’ve stayed anything close to sane this past week. Doing my own thing and spending evenings with my friends in-game has been amazing and so incredibly fun. We’ve had themed evenings, games, evenings just wishing on shooting stars and chatting. It reminds me of the month when Pokemon Go first came out years ago and everyone was out together every evening just catching Pokemon and yeah it’s been unreal.

Anything else?

A lot of great games of Dungeons and Dragons have occurred this month, even my more laid back games have had some incredibly tense moments and there are a lot of feels which I am obviously living for. I actually started recording our Monday games and episode two just went live on YouTube a couple of days ago if that’s something you’re interested in you can find the video below! (Warning there is some bad language).

For now though, happy April 1st, with any luck my tiny April TBR will be up tomorrow and then everything will be back to normal next week. Take care and stay safe.

NPC Tea Issues 6&7

comicbookreview

 

NPC Tea – Issues Six and Seven written and illustrated by Sarah Milman

Rating: XXXXX

Published: 2018 and 2019 by Sarah Milman

“I don’t want to be calm. I want to be angry. I want to be furious.”

A world identical to our own – identical that is, apart from all the orcs, elves and magic… A love letter to Final Fantasy and Lord of the Rings, NPC Tea is about Cardiff’s least popular tea shop, Y Ddraig, run by a perfectionist elf and a laid-back fire summon.

NPC Tea follows an ex-fire summon, an elf and a magicless human as they attempt to save a failing tea shop in modern-day Cardiff. Soon they find out that a lack of customers and caddies upon caddies of rotting tea are the least of their worries when a type of banned magic rears it’s ugly head and threatens to destroy the entire city. Bryn, Oz and Hannah must unite if they are to save their business – and ultimately the city itself.

An 8 issue series, NPC Tea escalates from a slice of life comedy into an epic fantasy, twisting typical RPG and fantasy stereotypes into a modern-day setting. It’s about what happens when there are no more dungeons to crawl when magic needs to be organized, and when orcs, elves and men try to live peacefully side by side – a balance that’s harshly tested when an entire city is threatened with destruction…

Some of you might remember that back in December 2018 I posted a review for issues 1 through 5 of NPC Tea, a beautiful, fun comic by writer and illustrator Sarah Milman. I had initially thought to review issues 6 through 8 together after issue eight releases later this year but with the events of issues 6 and 7 as well as the Kickstarter campaign for issue 8 going live I thought it would be a good time to review these two together and urge you to get on board with the series ready for the final issue! I’ll keep this spoiler-free for the entire series as much as possible for those of you who may have not have read the others yet! You can order issues 1-7 via Sarah’s Etsy store here right now if you want to catch up asap or if you back the Kickstarter you can choose to receive all of the single issues (with an exclusive slipcase to keep them all together neatly) OR a hardback bindup of all of them! Not forgetting Sarah also has a Patreon where at the $1 tier you can read up to issue 6 digitally right away!

I stumbled upon Sarah and at MCM Comic-Con in London a few years ago and was absolutely hooked on the art and the plot!  I’ve always loved worlds where high fantasy and contemporary can mix with a nice dollop of magic stirred in and NPC Tea is all that and more! These books capture that perfect balance where this is still fantasy but set in a modern world. I have remained hooked on this series ever since and I’m super nervous and excited about the final (possibly for good) issue coming very soon!

Issue Six
I think this might be my favourite issue so far. There are just so many great moments, of which two are ‘romance’ related and they just fit in so seamlessly, they up the stakes and work so well with the main plot-line. At this point in the story, it’s starting to feel like the beginning of the end in that we begin to find out more about what’s really going on and the final plans are being carried out as the endgame nears. We get more background on the summons and the interactions between them were fantastic. The writing and illustrations have been consistently brilliant throughout the series but the use of colour felt a lot more prominent in this issue and was absolutely gorgeous, I will never get over how much I love the style Sarah has chosen to use for this series. The dialogue too has been ramped up a notch (although the banter in the past few issues has been on point) this mixed with perfectly timed scene cuts made all served to build a brilliant amount of tension throughout the issue, with separate scenes binding together in such a satisfying way that meant it all just came together perfectly. Cait definitely wins MVP for this issue, I loved every scene she was in and her trick with her sword was bad-ass.

Issue Seven 
The penultimate issue! When this issue arrived I was SO hesitant to read it purely because I wasn’t ready for it. I’ve loved this series these past few years and the thought that we were coming to the end was terrifying! I lasted two days before I gave in and then read it three times in one sitting just to make sure I had taken it all in. The same praise issue six received applies here although there are, understandably less ‘romantic’ moments. This is a heavy issue filled with a startling reveal and we get down to lore down. As mentioned about issue six, Sarah once again uses the same fantastic technique of linking separate scenes meaning we get that lore from both sides but without having to repeat it. I did get confused when a certain character popped up as it took me a while to place them which prompted me to reread the entire series thus far (like I needed any more of an excuse) and it seemed I had just forgotten about them but read all together it made much more sense so this is my own fault. If Hannah wasn’t already my favourite character she absolutely would have been after this issue, I love her spirit and she definitely wins MVP for issue seven.

I am in no way emotionally ready for issue eight.

If you enjoyed this or are intrigued by the series then keep your eyes peeled for an interview with creator herself, Sarah Milman coming this Thursday!

 

 

#SixforSunday, spoiler free

S4S – Reasons I love blogging

Six for Sunday

Happy Six for Sunday! The weekly challenge where we give six answers to the prompt form the lovely Steph at A Little But A Lot. This week the prompt is “Six reasons I love blogging.” Last weeks was “Favourite Book blogs, Booktubers and Bookstagrammers to follow” but it was such a busy week that I didn’t get around to it so instead I’ve added it to this weeks for a double Six for Sunday post!

s4s-feb-week-2

Purpose. It might sound strange but I love that blogging gives me something to focus on. I’m out of work at the moment for various reasons out of my control and last time I was out of work for even half of this long I had a really hard time of it and started to spiral. Having my blog to focus on and keep up to date with has helped me to keep more grounded, to keep track of what day it is (this was a real problem previously) and to engage with others. I love blogging for many reasons but this is the most important to me and I truly worry about what state my mental health would be in without it.

Blogger friends. This one is probably my favourite. I love chatting to other bloggers (and bookish people in general) that I might not have found if I hadn’t stumbled into the world of blogging in the first place. Especially when we find that it’s not just books or blogging that we have in common, there are a good few people I’ve met this way that I consider real friends and I’m so grateful for that.

Events. Again, this is something I hadn’t even considered or really known about when I started vlogging and blogging. I’ve been to so many great events and met so many authors in the past few years and I still can’t believe how incredibly lucky I’ve been to be able to attend these. It’s nice going and seeing familiar faces as well as lots of new ones too.

Lovely publishers. Back when I started blogging it was terrifying sending out e-mails to publishers asking if I could review for them and although it’s still a little scary contacting new publishers or ones I’ve not had contact with before I’m much more confident and I actually really love interacting with the ones I’ve worked with for a while now, especially the lovely teams at Titan Books and Barrington Stoke ❤

BOOKS! I mean duh, obviously. I found a picture of my bookshelf from a good few years back and some of the books on it made me cringe. Not because they were bad exactly but it wasn’t varied at all. Almost all of them were black paranormal romance books and there’s nothing wrong with that or liking one particular genre but I look at my bookshelves now and all the variety and colour and different authors and I know for a fact if I hadn’t started blogging and engaging in the bookish community that there are so many books there that I would never have discovered and I’m eternally grateful.

Writing. So I love to write. When I was younger I thought I remember wanting to be a journalist so I could write about the things I liked or stories I’d find out. I used to listen to people talking in the supermarket when we went shopping and make up stories about the people I saw and then write them up in my own newspaper alongside pieces about my favourite toys and books. I realised as I got older than I don’t have the skill or tenacity to go into actual journalism but I still love writing and when I realised book blogging and blogging, in general, was an actual thing you bet I wanted in on a piece of that.

What things do YOU love about blogging? Do we have any the same?

s4s-feb-week-1

I ran out of time to post this last week (it’s been a busy one) but I wanted to make sure I still gave these wonderful people the shout outs they deserved though! These are some of my favourite bookish people out there ❤ (But I love you all)

Must be Monday – NaNoWriMo Finished!

unboxing
So it’s December 2nd and NaNoWriMo is finished and I DID IT! Despite falling behind a little toward the end and having my first big wobble right at the finish line I finished at 50,139 words and wrote the end to the story I’d been working on for the past three NaNoWriMo’s. I literally cried for ten minutes after at having finally got it done at just having gotten the majority of it down. I have some more to write for sure as a lot of the three versions don’t strictly connect but I’m having a break from writing every single day until the new year because I just have too much on.  I didn’t even write a Six for Sunday post yesterday as I just needed the break. All back on schedule now though.

nano19stats1nano19stats2

This year I’m really proud that I managed to write at least a little every day and whereas I usually have a dip in motivation at around 25k to 30k and decide what I’m writing is horrid and it’s not worth it and I want to start again I didn’t really experience this until towards the end and it didn’t affect me hugely until the very last day. I also had a couple of D&D related projects that I was able to write for that really helped to boost my creativity and one or two friends who really encouraged me to write when I needed to extra push as well as my husband reminding me when I was procrastinating. He also brought me a box of chocolates for when I finished which was really sweet.

Although I didn’t finish early this year I still feel like this was my most successful NaNo to date and I’m looking forward to next year and maybe writing something a little different as well as spending the next year learning to hone my writing and improve my skill. For now, though, I’m sticking to D&D planning and hopefully catching up with blogging again, I miss having scheduled posts ready! Did you take part in NaNoWriMo? If so well done! No matter your word count just taking the time to sit down and write is enough.

The question is, what do I do with the weekly Must be Monday posts now? Any ideas welcome! Would you like to know about my various games of Dungeons and Dragons? My “normal” life? More writing stuff or something completely different?

Must Be Monday, writing

Must be Monday – NaNoWriMo Week Two

unboxing
Well, here we are, eleven days into NaNoWriMo (ten at the time of writing, I’m actually procrastinating just by writing this post because right now I have about two thousand off words to write tonight to keep on track and for some reason this past week I have turned into the worse kind of procrastinator) and I’m behind. Usually, I do tend to fall behind a little but am on track most of the time, not so this year it seems although I did exceed my daily goal a few times. I’m finding it harder as I have less free time to write this year. For the past two years, I’ve been able to get away to the library for a couple of hours or so to focus on writing with fewer distractions and I’ve had more time alone while my little man was at his childminders etc but now he’s only at school for a couple of hours a day and as a result I’m obviously getting much less done.

To combat this I’m trying to get up earlier in the morning to try and write instead of messing around on my phone and scrolling through Twitter for ages. I tend to write better in the morning more than any other time so I’m hoping this will make me much more productive and if need be I can just go to bed earlier which seems to be happening anyway as it’s getting darker earlier.

Story-wise I have a good vague idea of what I’m doing with it and where it’s going down to the exact scenes for up to eleven chapters of which I’m currently meant to be writing the beginning of six. I’m a little unsure what exactly will happen in the last third of the book but I have an end goal which is a start it’s just mapping out the scenes I need to do but I’ve realised in my time as a DM for Dungeons and Dragons that it’s probably better to have a rough idea now and refine it a little further down the line.

I hope if you’re taking part in NaNoWriMo at the moment, or any other project really that you’re getting on well and still enjoying it. Let me know in the comments what you’re up to!

Now, I’m going to go back to watching Star Wars and pretending it’s purely for writing inspiration.

It is!

Honest.

Mostly.

Update: I did continue to watch Star Wars but I did also write another one thousand words and I’ve already written another 400 this morning putting my total at 15667 words. To be on track I’m meant to reach 18337, just a measly 2670 words to get me back on top right? I mean I’ve done it before? Fingers crossed!

New Update five minutes before post goes live: I have a splitting headache and feeling really nauseous. Pray for me.

Must be Monday – Inktober Week 3

unboxing (1)

I somehow both can’t believe we’re into week three of Inktober: Writers Edition but equally, I’m really starting to flag a little now. Especially as I’ve been starting prep for NaNoWriMo next month which is A LOT of work. I’ve succeeded with the 50k goal for the past two years and I want this year to be no exception so I’m trying to make sure I’m as ready as I can be as I had a lot more free time last year! Still, we’re not there yet so without further ado I present days 15-21 of the Inktober 2019: Writer Edition challenge.

15.Legend

“You’re sure this is the place?” Zeke grunted.

“Yes,” sighed Zara.
“It’s just a ring of mushrooms”
“I know what I saw. We just have to wait.”

“We’ve been here for hours and…” Zeke paused, mouth hanging open as seven fae dragons materialised in the circle and began to sing.

16.Wild

Tig circled the Tiefling girl, growling. Injured or not she refused to become prey but was finding it hard to concentrate with all the blood she was losing from the wound in her gut. She readied herself to strike just as the girl called out. 

“Would you like some tea?” 

17.Ornament
“Why do you keep so much junk?” David groans, grabbing another dusty box from the back of the attic space.

“I don’t like to throw things away” Lara protests.

“Even this?” David holds up an old, stained teapot, rubbing at a stubborn spot. 

“You have wishes three” A voice booms. 

18.Misfit 

Closing her eyes and gathering her power it felt as if the universe pulled at her, the entire cosmos bearing down, the gravitational force of hundreds of planets, the heat of a trillion stars. She pulled at the threads within and let them escape in a torrent of defiant force. 

19.Sling 

“You broke my arm!” Lore exclaimed as Clair nearly tied off the sling she’d hastily made from her scarf. 

“You shouldn’t have kissed me!” She yelled, tugging a little harder than perhaps she needed too. Lore hissed and gritted his teeth.

“I thought you wanted me to!”

“I’m ENGAGED!” 

“Oh.”

20.Tread
“The tracks lead this way.” Zara nodded forwards. 

“Into the dark spooky forest?” Zeke asked, fear clear in his voice. 

“Yes,” she huffed, “He’s your friend, don’t you want to make sure he’s okay?” 

“Of course. But does it absolutely have to be this way?” 

Zara sighed dragging him along.

21.Treasure 
Lucien sat with an ornate box, resting it on his lap before opening it and gazing at the contents inside, a leather bracelet with a crescent moon charm, his first real birthday gift from his little sister. His courage found at last, he replaced it and went to rescue her. 

 

Huge thank you to both Feline Trickster for this AMAZING art of Lucien and Anissa and to my in-game sister Alaina (Anissa) for letting me use it for this piece.

Just one more week left to go now. I’m determined to see this through AND be ready for NaNoWriMo as well as keeping up with my normal blogging too. I think I might need some luck! I’ll meet you back here tomorrow for my weekly review, this week it’s Finding Home Vol. Two: The Healer and it is a doozy.

The 100 Truths Tag

So I’ve been a little out of touch with my blogging lately, little man starting school has really thrown me out of the loop with a lot of things and my blogging and reading is something that’s taken a bit of a hit. I’ve gone from having scheduled posts or at least ideas/rough ideas for posts weeks in advance to sneaking in a bit of blogging and reading in the small moments I can get and I’m sure it’ll balance out eventually, it just might take some time. Today I decided to do a tag that’s been sitting in my drafts since about last year but I hadn’t got around to doing which is the 100 truths tag about myself.

We had so many cats and rabbits and guinea pigs etc when I was younger but I guess my first pet would technically be Jack the Jack Russel who was born the same day as me or maybe our tabby cat Loki who was the first pet I owned myself.
