I had heard about Siren’s Lament from another blog because I was looking for webtoons to read, and it’s good. Lyra is a wallflower in love with her best friend, but he is dating someone else and might not like her that way. One night in a moment of pity, Lyra crosses the path of a siren and finds herself entangled in a curse. Siren’s Lament, Season 1, by instantmiso is a romcom that focuses on a love triangle and tries to draw Lyra out of her shell.
As you might have noticed in February and March, I took a hiatus from blogging and changed my posting schedule. I posted a lot less and have been generally less active on social media. I realized while I was on hiatus was that I felt burnt out, not just that I needed a break. We… Continue reading Why did I have blogging burnout this year?
The cover of The Girl From the Other Side, Vol. 1 by Nagabe struck me as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and the two characters on the cover looked sweet.

Rachael Lippincott’s Five Feet Apart is adapted from Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis’s screenplay of the same name. It’s a love story between two teens who have cystic fibrosis (a.k.a. CF), and they must remain six feet apart to protect their health. One of them is a YouTuber who makes a video-diary of her life, and the other pushes back against his mom’s insistence on trying every possible treatment that could cure him. It’s a pretty good novelization of a movie.
Because it’s the last week of May and because I’m on a once-a-week posting schedule at the moment, it’s time to wrap up the month. It’s been a good reading month and an overall good Bookstagram month. So, let’s review. In the way of reading, I finished two novels, a poetry collection, and three graphic… Continue reading Wrapping Up May 2019
Geekerella’s title is pretty clear that it retells Cinderella but makes her a geek, but it goes further by making her prince the star of the Starfield reboot, which is a space-adventure cult classic that Elle Wittimer was raised on. Elle is not thrilled….

Season 1 has finally come to an end for Mongié’s Let’s Play, and I want to review it. Last year, I reviewed the first 45 episodes/chapters, and those were great. The last half of this season is also great, but I don’t think it’s as good as the first. As I go through this review, forgive me not remembering exact details since I’ve been following it weekly since October.
It’s the end of the month, and that means I need to write another wrap-up post. The month went by fast. I’ve been reading, guest blogging, and watching the last season of Game of Thrones.
