Summary

(adapted from Goodreads)

After attacking Devil’s Reef in 1928, the U.S. Government rounded up the people of Innsmouth and took them to the desert, far from their ocean, their Deep One ancestors, and their sleeping god Cthulhu. Only Aphra and Caleb Marsh survived the camps, and they emerged without a past or a future. The government that stole Aphra’s life now needs her help. She must return to the ruins of her home, gather scraps of her stolen history, and assemble a new family to face the darkness of human nature.

Writing and Reading Wrap-Up – Feb 2017

I had no plans for this month since my previous one didn’t go too well, so I went back to my old as-you-like-it way of doing things. February was a roller-coaster of a month for me. I’m currently on a low – the annoying trinity of cold, cough and fever have descended on me. This week has been far from productive, and I’m in a reading slump currently. Let’s see how the others went.

Writing & Reading Wrap-Up – Jan 2017

Remember my writing plan from two weeks ago? (It’s okay if the answer is no, you can check it out here.) I did promise a monthly writing wrap-up along with it, but I decided to add reading to it as well. Since I have a separate book blog, I will mention my reading only briefly here and leave links to my posts on that blog if you want to read further. With that introduction out of the way, let’s check on my progress (or lack of it).

No, wait, don’t pounce. I visit that site so often I virtually live there, but some features or groups of people are simply annoying. I normally don’t go around complaining, but I just had to get this off my chest. One of my favourite book bloggers was recently attacked on Twitter for uh… I have no idea why, and she was forced to make the account private. You’d think that reading books would help people make smarter choices, but apparently not. Here are my top five complaints.

Looking Ahead

As September draws to an end, I can’t be more happy with the posts I put up this month. Doing double features was a lot of fun! I blogged about things that really mattered to me, so I didn’t anxiously look at my Stats page and sweat about the views. I was again reminded of the fact that blogging won’t seem like a chore if I’m writing about things I love. I wanted to do another Inspiration Circle post today, but the WordPress website seemed to be shutting me out, so with the limited functionality that the app offers, I decided to turn this one into a ‘How I Spent September and What to Expect from Me in October’ post.
