Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!The goal of this meme is to share news you have on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!
Hey everyone! I'm starting to get back into doing Sunday Posts again and you may have noticed that I added a few new things for my Sunday Posts! First off, I have added a new section called "Positive Things" where I talk about some of the good things that has happened to me in my life. While things are looking bad right now, it's nice to try to focus on the positive things in life and use that to help you get through the most difficult aspects of life. Secondly, I have redesigned the headings in these posts because I wanted them to match my newer designs for the blog and I think that these designs came out well! It's always nice to try out new things on the blog!
Now, I'm about to go into a rant in a second:
So, everyone knows about the situation with J.K. Rowling and her transphobic statements. When I heard about this news, I was beyond devastated because I love the Harry Potter series ever since I was little and this incident had put me in a difficult place: should I abandon the Harry Potter series because of J.K. Rowling's statements or should I stay with the series regardless? I have decided to use the old "separate the author from their works" idea, because personally, I can't bring myself to abandon Harry Potter since that series was apart of my childhood and is one of my all time favorite book series. However, I DO NOT support J.K. Rowling's views and so, I have decided to not have anything to do with J.K. Rowling or acknowledge her in anything Harry Potter related, unless she apologizes for her actions. I honestly think that there should be a tweet on Twitter called #HarryPotterFansWhoSupportTransCommunity trending on Twitter. So, how are you guys handling this situation?
One Word: HEALING.
*Nothing to report here!
How do you deal with badly behaving authors?
*So, here are some good things that happened to me recently!
* I have started a Fiverr account early this year and it's going pretty well! I've been getting lots of orders for both my beta reading services and my Instagram services. So, if you want me to beta read your work or post your book on my Instagram account, then hit me up on Fiverr!
* I visit my Doctor in August (as in, I had an at home chat with my doctor) and everything looks good! My blood pressure and my blood sugar are in good standing, so I'm really happy about that! I was actually worried about my health, but I'm so happy that everything is looking good for me!
