Looking Forward October 2021

Hello, everyone! Happy October! I hope all of you are doing well. I’m doing good! I’m enjoying the fall season as much as I can. I’ve been looking forward to the cooler weather, fall TV premieres and of course everything pumpkin!I have so many things that I am looking forward to this month! It is a month full of treats instead of tricks, hopefully. Anyway, let’s get started!

Video Games

I have been obsessed with a cute cozy game called Cozy Grove. You are a spirit scout that gets stuck on a deserted island and you have to bring color and light back to the island and help the ghost bears. It is a perfect fall game. They have an update that is coming out on October 8th that I am so excited about!

My Review

When I read the synopsis for The Storm Crow I was intrigued.   I really loved the writing! I thought the characters were well written.  I think the giant crows was a very unique idea. I enjoyed this book but I do wish there was a little more world building. I was very excited about the crows but they kinda got pushed aside. I’m hoping book 2 will have more about them. Overall, this was a quick, interesting read.

My Favorite Quotes

“Be careful. You’re dangerously close to sounding like this girl I used to know. Tongue as sharp as a crow’s talons, menace to authorities everywhere, about this tall.”

I’d pushed unwaveringly, and when I had met a wall. I’d shattered it.

They were like wolves looking for a weak spot, their postures rigid in preparation to strike and scramble up the ranks.

His eyes, normally bright as the sun on the ocean, looked dull. Like something was missing.

AUTHOR INFORMATION

Kalyn

Kalyn Josephson is a Technical Writer in Silicon Valley, which leaves room for too many bad puns about technically being a writer. She grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA, but now lives in the Bay Area with four awesome friends (because it’s the Bay and she’d like to be able to retire one day) and two black cats (who are more like a tiny dragon and an even tinier owl). When not writing YA Fantasy, she loves baking, reading, playing sports, and watching too many movies.

May 2019 Wrap-Up and June TBR

Hello, everyone! Happy June 2019 because apparently I’m still stuck in 2018. If you read the new looking forward post I posted it as 2018 on the blog and twitter. I need some caffeine or a nap. Though I’m trying to stay awake to watch Taylor Swift perform at Wango Tango via Livestream. She’s not on till 1 15 am where I live. Anyway, on to the books I read in May. I read five books, three of which were graphic novels. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. I’m hoping I’ll read more in June.

Here’s what I read in May!

Stranger Things: The Other Side (Graphic Novel Volume 1)

Sisters of Blood and Spirit (The Sisters of Blood and Spirit, #1)

The Perfect Girlfriend

My Boyfriend Bites (My Boyfriend Is a Monster, #3)

Wrapped Up in You (My Boyfriend Is a Monster, #6)

Everything I read this month was kind of meh besides Sisters of Blood and Spirit. I’m hoping it’s because of the reading slump.

Here are the books I’m planning on reading this month!

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1)

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1)

Ayesha at Last

The Chosen (Contender, #1)
