Last month on I Heart Romance
I really wish I have a lot of things to say but I’m last week was the most exhausting week of all. I just wanted to run and hide and forget this current world we have right now doesn’t exist.
Many things happened. Actually, it feels like a million things are happening.
We had to say goodbye to our cat, Twylah a couple of weeks ago and is truly heartbreaking. We knew her time was short. And to be honest, we had been holding on to her for a while now. But it still does not dull the ache that we feel. Momo has lost her Atsi Twylah and is feeling pretty lonely now.
Now, we also had a lot of things happen in Romancelandia just this weekend. I can’t even put it into words. I was also going to post a discussion about diversity in audiobooks but I am holding it off until next week. Things are pretty raw right now and there seems to be a divide between diverse reviewers and bloggers and authors – especially some authors of color who are also championing diversity. It’s been eye-opening, to say the least.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, there are a lot of Twitter threads discussing this. The books in question are also here and here.
Then, we also have a certain author who has shown time and time again her bad behavior. This time, it is so appalling it just needs to be called out.
I can’t believe I have 49 mutuals with this author. To be honest, I haven’t read her books and I have not been following her. But I just want to let everyone know who this author is. For more context, you can search for her on Facebook and Twitter. I just won’t deal with her negativity on my blog. But I also want to put it out there so more people are informed and can make their own decisions.
Now the real world.
I really don’t want to deal with the real world, but yeah. This last week has been a mess. I don’t want to discuss politics here, but this goes beyond politics now. Again, I urge everyone to exercise your right to vote. REGISTER to vote!
I’ve been playing this addictive Ramen Craze game on my iPad to try to distract me from reality. I can actually concentrate if I’m playing and listening to an audiobook, so this really keeps me focused on other things.
I only read 10 books in August, and one was a DNF. Since it was an anthology, and I read one novella, I am counting it as a read.
