BBNYA is still underway with Round 2 currently running! If you want to keep up with the competition head over to @BBNYA_Official – you can see which books were entered this year, and which books made it to round 2! Not to mention, this competition is supported by TheWriteReads and The Folio Society – how awesome is that?! This is my third time taking part, and second time as a Team Leader – I must say it is a fantastic competition that I highly recommend checking out whether you are a blogger or indie author!
What Else I Have Been Up To!
Over the past two months I have been on Summer break and have had time to Game, Draw and actually relax so let’s see.
Aside from all the fabulous books I got to read this month, I also managed to play (and Complete) Stray!! Such an adorable and impressive game with a heart-wrenching storyline – I highly recommend (and you get to play as an adorable Cat! 😸)
I also finally finished Pokemon Shining Pearl after trying to defeat the Elite 4 with my Woefully Unprepared Team 👀but I did and I completed the Pokedex!
I also completed Miles Morales: Spiderman on the PS4! It was an excellent game that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend!
I finally finished all of the Star Wars Series I’ve been meaning to get too Including: Clone Wars, Rebels, Bad Batch, and Obi-Wan – which was fantastic (I love Ahsoka!!)
And I, albeit very late, finished off the Ms Marvel series -which was definitely interesting!
I haven’t been completely anti-social!! I did manage to meet up with a couple of my friends who I hadn’t seen in ages because of the pandemic and we managed to have a lovely day out at a very cool nature trail!
Hayley Kiyoko’s album PANORAMA released and I absolutely loved it!! It was so gorgeous!
Last but not least! I have finally been getting back into my Art!! Now that I am on Summer break from University, I have finally had time to do some art and it has been SO MUCH FUN! I still have a few projects to go but I have managed to complete quite a few already!
So that was my month, how was yours?
