I would love to discuss YA or Japanese lit with somebody! Though most things are fine honestly.

Am I wrong for being bitter that I'm getting overdue notices and charges for:
1- Something I returned
2- A YA item. My library decided they weren't going to do charges for "youth materials" anymore. That's key. Not like, youth library cards (though this is targeted at the youth) just youth material returned late.
Stardew Valley fic I founds CWs Show more
This is about mental health issues. Depression and such. If you follow it and it gets into shane's 6 heart event and doesn't change it immensely, there will attempted suicide.
No YOU'RE the one that was playing #StardewValley this week to cheer yourself up!
And then I began my descent, looking for fic featuring my husband (well, not in this file, but it's only a matter of time) Shane.
If I have things you need to borrow
It's ongoing (updated recently) and has _not_ done Shane's 6 heart event yet (CWs next post) if it's going to.
books, triggers, feels Show more
"I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter" Is triggering the shit out of me tbh. I really want to finish it, but it's more than I expected. I _knew_ it dealt with mental health issues, but it's similar to my childhood, so I'm experiencing a lot of feelings and having to separate.
I'm debating doing a writeup on separating the book from me on the blog this instance now has. If there's a cut function, above will be cws (if I do this). Obv this won't be a pleasant read.
I should NOT have to justify my purchases! I'm 27 next month!
1. Amazon is garbage.
2. I don't want to share my books with my Dad because I have to justify every single book to him, (see why I never bought sexy books when I had a kindle)
3. I couldn't get any apps, because I'd hear about "safety" from someone who is addicted to a candy crush clone.
4. Amazon is evil.
5. I wouldn't piss on Bezos if he was on fire.
I'm not sure if I was deceived or bought a book without looking too much into it.
I'm ashamed to admit this. I bought something in James Patterson's YA label. It's not written DIRECTLY by him. (but I'm not sure if I want to read it...) So I didn't notice until a couple weeks ago when "why the fuck is James Patterson's name on this book in my e-reader"
Seriously, how the hell did this happen? And please tell me about unwise purchases so I feel better.
I got 2 explanations for the Pareto Rule (80:20). For a #blog it seems to be 20% content, 80% marketing your shit*. For misc content creation, it seems to be 80% free content, 20% paid/ads.
* Seriously. Maybe this is why I've never been a successful blogger? I want to write instead of spending 4x as much time promoting shit on social media? I mean tweaking your pages for your audience, I _get_ that. Spamming on social media, I don't.
something feels VERY wrong with this.
oh, yeah, I meant to tell y'all about this
it's just one background couple, but hey, it's somethin'
"Donald Duck to feature lesbian couple after request from 10-year-old"
favorite part (morbid; death) Show more
I think my favorite part (if a bit personal) will be that my dad will not rss my blog and complain that I don't update anymore because my (now long-dead) beagle murdered a bunch of baby bunnies. 😅 It sort of felt like it was being used as proof I couldn't commit to anything when I was using it as 1. a memory log 2. a fun project.
Yayyyyyy our blog site is up now!!!!!!
You can find it at https://blogs.booktoot.club
It's currently invite only but just send me a private message to get the link.
A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.
Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.
Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.
Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.
This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
