Why You May Not See As Many Reviews Here Anymore

You may not see so many reviews here anymore.

I know I've lately been absent, more generally speaking, but when I think about blogging, usually the last thing on my mind is reviewing books (though next week, I think, you'll see reviews on Labrynth Lost and Of Fire and Stars from me, months late). And this sort of post is me being like "I'm not going to request any advanced review copies, and I'll eventually get through the ones I've had for the past year and that I still haven't reviewed yet, but I'm trusting y'all to hold me accountable, 'cause I don't know that I can actually write the kind of reviews that people want anymore."

Why?

I Didn't Like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Okay, so I might be weeks late, and many people might have already posted on this topic, but hey, maybe many of you have also already seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and maybe many of you weren't certain why you didn't like the movie or maybe you want to discuss the movie, in its glories or failings.

Hihihi, let's chat!

August and September Recap / Book Talk

Hey, everyone! Today I've got my August and September recap. It's been a while since I've updated; I'm probably, right now, in a relationship best described by Katherine Locke, who once wrote that she wasn't in a relationship because she was in a relationship with her ambition. I've started grad school, and I really just want to get ALL THE THINGS done, from work done in my old lab to work now in my new lab. I also moved across states July/August, so you could say that I'm still "catching up" with everything... new people to meet, new places to go, new everything. Which is why I haven't been reading or updating as much, but looking forward to getting back into it all!!

Let me talk about what I have read recently!

July TBR

Hey, all! Today I’m here to talk about my July TBR, including four middle grade fantastical adventure stories and four young adult novels that aren’t quite as easily grouped together. I went on vacation in New Zealand for two weeks in June (5-19) and then managed to get sick for about a week and a half (June 22 – July 1), so I’ve been somewhat absent in terms of booktube videos and blog posts. Even now, with this July TBR, I’m moving in less than twenty days to another state! Ack! So who knows how many of these books I’ll be able to finish in this short time frame, but if any of you have copies of them and want to read them together, please let me know!

Is "Light-Hearted" SFF Taken Seriously?

My friend's boyfriend asked me for book recommendations the other day. He said that he liked Brandon Sanderson's works and the Wheel of Time series but that Game of Thrones, which everyone had recommended, was too dark and bloody. But more importantly, he asked me whether I thought that SFF books generally were too dark, whether I could think of some light-hearted SFF books.

My instinctive, gut reaction was to say that there aren't many light-hearted SFF books (though I speak less for the adult market-- I'm much more familiar with YA), and that those books which are light-hearted tend to be taken less seriously. Is that a correct assumption? And why?
