Caturday Reads: Japanese Steampunk & Eberron’s Sword & Sorcery

There are two books on my weekend reading itinerary. One of them is a Japanese steampunk novel that has been on my TBR for over a year. My local library had a copy, so I snagged it the last time that I was here. The second book is the first novel in one of my favourite sword and sorcery trilogies of all-time, a trilogy that I love to read and re-read, especially when I’m having a difficult time dealing with real-life challenges

Caturday Reads: Fluffy Romance Manga & Sci-Fi Horror

Reading-wise, I’m going to focus on fluffy romance manga because it has been a salve for my stressed out body, mind, and spirit. One of them I know for sure that I shall invest in acquiring the physical volumes in the near future because it’s legitimately one of my top ten favourite romance serials ever. The rest are mostly sci-fi horror novels with one fantasy novel that I’ve been working on since mid-February.

Caturday Reads: Portal Fantasy, Sword & Sorcery Comics, & Japanese Nonfiction

The weekend plans shall revolve around reading books, playing video game demos for a couple of my most-anticipated releases for 2021, and then scheduling up blog posts for the upcoming week. I shall be reading the latest instalment in an adult portal fantasy series I’ve been thoroughly enjoying over the last few years, some sword and sorcery comics, and a Japanese nonfiction novel.

Caturday Reads: Cosy Mystery, Galactic Sci-Fi, & Retro Gaming

The plan as it stands is to read a couple books, marathon the Star Wars films in machete order with Madame Gabs, and try to play Donkey Kong Country 3 with full completion (I’ve never been able to do this, but Gabs has, so she’s going to help me, woot). The books I shall be reading consist of a cosy mystery and the second instalment in a medical sci-fi series I began at the start of January.

Caturday Reads: Medical Sci-Fi & Psychological Thriller

The new university semester starts in a week or so, where I shall be returning in the pursuit of a pharmacist degree (I’m so ecstatic, y’all). Since I will have very little to no free time then, I want to spend the next couple days revamping my office/study and the burrowing into blankets with comforting reads, TV serials, and my kitters. During this period, I’ll definitely be ignoring the world because I need a mental and emotional break

Weekend Reads: Badass Chinese Fantasy, Sci-Fi Adventure, & Spooky Mystery

I’m still sticking to the fantasy genre a little bit but veering more towards old-school fantasy writing. Since I’ve also been craving a weird concoction of adventure and mystery, I decided to also pick up a couple of new books that I acquired in September. One of them is a re-read after many, many years and the other I discovered while browsing GoodReads at two in the morning in a bout of insomnia, woot. Additionally, I started a new long-term book project that I shall be taking my time reading.

Weekend Reads: Spoopy Historical Fiction & Badass YA Science-Fiction

My reading over the last week, or since my last Weekend Reads post to be more specific, has been sporadic. While I have been able to finish a couple of books, the rut is fighting back and it’s annoying to say the least. But fear not! I shall also fight back. As long as I don’t fumble my next d20 roll (let’s go critical hit!), I should be okay, I think. Either way, these are the light-hearted (prose-wise) gems that I shall be diving into with the hopes of driving that rut back into the closet where it belongs.

My Final Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon TBR

It’s hard to believe that this shall be my last Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon TBR post. The gig started back in 2007, and it’s with some sadness that the hosts decided to make this their last hurrah. I may not have been a blogger or anything remotely close to a bibliophile back then (took a long…
