I believe I’m going to have to amend my reading goal. JK Rowling has come out of the woodwork as an absolute TERF and I’m phenomenally disappointed in her for her inhumanity.
I’m genuinely disappointed in how she is acting and the stance she is taking. It makes me want to get rid of all the merchandise I have and no longer support her endeavors and distance myself from that particular fandom.
Her shenanigans aside, I have managed to read a couple of books so far this year, despite the depression beast that’s taken up residence in my brain the last few months.
Here’s what I’ve read so far:
- Soulbound By: Bethany Adams
- Little Women By: Louisa May Alcott
- First Frost: A Novel By: Sarah Addison Allen
- Lost Lake: A Novel By: Sarah Addison Allen
- The Housewife Assassin’s Handbook By: Josie Brown
- Burying the Honeysuckle Girls By: Emily Carpenter
- The Rules of Magic: A Novel By: Alice Hoffman
- Fortune’s Fool By: Mercedes Lackey
- One Good Knight By: Mercedes Lackey
- The Fairy Godmother By: Mercedes Lackey
- The Snow Queen By: Mercedes Lackey
- Mr. Darcy’s Passion By: Harriet Lark
- The Secrets of Ghosts By: Sarah Painter
- A Berry Deadly Welcome (Book 1) By: A.R. Winters
- I Am Malala By: Malala Yousafzai
- A Study in Charlotte By: Brittany Cavallaro

While I originally wanted to accomplish 111 books in 2020, I wasn’t anticipating getting beaten down by depression and losing almost two months of productivity to it.
Nor, honestly, was I expecting the effect that COVID-19 would have on my life. It has made work and play severely limited and with my Kindle Fire endlessly on the fritz, it makes it hard to read as often as I should. While Miss A is temporarily back in the office, it’s not likely to last and I will be alone in the office again in a month or two for the foreseeable future. In our last major meeting, he said it was unlikely for anyone to come back to the office until after the new year. It’s amazing how difficult this damned virus has made life. And it highlights how terribly our current president, whom I loathe, handles any sort of crisis.
I can’t believe it’s already September. Soon, October and its dual moons will be rolling around. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment this coming Friday and I have to get an updated blood test done. I’m hoping my results aren’t too bad. I need to eat a little better. Too much cereal lately. And NaNoWriMo is coming up as well! As ever, I’m hoping to get a finished novel out of the thirty day journey. I’m hoping that I’m more successful this year than as in past.
Anyway, I’m going to go work on Sparrow’s Seaside Blanket some more. I’m only eight rows from done, counting the nifty border I have planned. As I think I’ve mentioned before, since it’s Seaside themed, I’m doing a crocheted wave stitch for the border in the dark blue.
What are you working on now? What projects do you have planned?
Don’t forget to take your meds, folks!
