| April 1, 2020

Reading: I just finished The Sparrow in Hiding by J. Kathleen Cheney (review to come soon), and the next in my “stack” is The Witches of St. Petersburg by Imogen Edwards-Jones, so I’m just all about the fantastical Russian stories right now! Watching: We’re surprisingly not watching a whole bunch right now, largely driven by the fact […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Mid-March 2020

| March 11, 2020

Reading: I’ve just finished editing a short story collection, which were all new stories to me, and I’m reading books to review. (And always looking for more editing work and review books!) Watching: The second season of Altered Carbon dropped at the end of February, so we’re working our way through that, and generally enjoying it. […]

Reading: A book to review, and lots of flash fiction from a contest I’m participating in. Watching: Not much recently. Looking forward to Altered Carbon season 2 in February, though! Listening To: The usual slate of k-pop for fun and workouts, and ambient music for editing and writing. My favorite k-pop boy band, Monsta X, will […]

Reading: Working my way through Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdez, which I started reading from the library and then had to return. Now I have it on my Kindle.

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To: December 2019 Edition

| December 18, 2019

Reading: A book to review, and a couple of comics here and there. I finally read the first trade paperback of Doctor Aphra and promptly requested MOAR! Aside from that, though I haven’t read much lately. I had to return the library copy of Chilling Effect, so I bought that for my Kindle (since I was […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Late November 2019 edition

| November 27, 2019

Reading: I got a copy of Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes from the library, so I’m squeezing that in between books I need to read for reviews.

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Early November 2019 Edition

Reading: Comic books, in theory. In reality, I’ve mostly just been re-reading things I’ve written as I revise them. Watching: We’re slowly working our way through Legends of Tomorrow, when we have time. We’re still on season 2. Listening To: My favorite K-pop boy band, Monsta X, just released a new album, Follow, so that’s on […]

Reading: An ARC of A Family Matter by Ox Aaronson, which I’ll be reviewing soon! Watching: We finally saw Pitch Perfect (yeah, WAY behind on that franchise), but otherwise, we haven’t been watching many of our TV shows recently. Listening To: There’s a lot of new K-pop I’ve found recently. Favorites include Onewe (which is a […]

Reading/Watching/Listening To: Late September Edition

Reading: I’ve spent a lot of the month looking over my own books, in preparation for releasing Brass and Glass 3: The Boiling Sea. But I’ve also been reading anthologies to review. Watching: Farscape has been our main thing to watch lately. We’ve finally gotten to Chiana, which I was looking forward to! Someday, we’ll even finish […]
