I got the audiobook of Wilder Girls for and started that today.

It's shorter than my last audiobook by quite a bit, but I'm also having a bit more trouble paying attention and picking up on all the names, so that's gonna be a struggle.

Mostly I wish these things were searchable so if I have a "wait who did that" question I could find out easily. :-/

The Bad: a book I've been looking forward to all year and that I thought came out right near my birthday in September is actually set for *next* August. 😱 Not sure if it changed or if I just had the date wrong.

The Good: now I have room in my "books I'm allowed to buy this year" list if I want to get one of the book club books for this month since my library doesn't have either. Hmmmm.

Bleh day. Gonna listen to some records and try to finish reading First Rule of Punk.

Pulled out a bunch of bands that seem appropriate:

Shot in the Dark
Bikini Kill
Ramones (ew)

Gonna try to make it a good night.

I finished season 3 of The Worst Witch yesterday and no spoilers but the ending actually made me cry and I'm impressed. I hope there's a next season. I also hope they finally give HB a girlfriend in it. Fingers crossed.

Oh nooooooo July's almost over and I suck at finding things to say about book club reads.

I'll think about it when work gets boring and try to do that when I come home.

non-book related, transphobia, sad 

Inspired by the new season of "The Worst Witch" going up on Netflix. I've watched most of it this weekend.

I actually am a little interested in reading the books, I just didn't know about them when I was in the intended demographic and they haven't quite been at the top of my list since I discovered them...which wasn't until this series started a couple years ago.

Hoopla has some, though. So maybe I'll try one now.

Are there any book-based movies or TV shows you enjoy but that you have never read and probably aren't going to read? Which ones? Why not?

ghostbusters: answer the call, opinions, interpretation question, solve a disagreement! 

Fediverse SFFBookClub August Poll 

I got some pins in the mail today and showed them to my partner. He stared at the Quentin Quire one for a really long time.

He's not familiar with the character and thought maybe I got a custom pin of myself and wow what a good compliment. πŸ’œ

Woooo this thing I wrote for awhile back is finally available! I'm even listed on the cover! πŸ’œ

BookToot Club

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!
