Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2021

This has been another great month! I read and reviewed quite a few awesome books, but I slowed my reading pace down quite a bit. I finished my TBR for the month, though. So, I’m definitely still making progress and well on my way to completing my Goodreads challenge very early this year. I also got a lot of writing done, which was one of the main reasons for the slow down in reading. I added over 10,000 words to my current work in progress for Camp NaNoWriMo, and I couldn’t be more pleased.

First Lines Fridays (16) – July 30, 2021

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page

  • Finally… reveal the book!

Comic Book Recap & Review – Eternals (2021-): Only Death Is Eternal

I’ve decided to try out something new this week. Today’s post will be a recap and review of a recent comic book arc. I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate comic books into the blog in a more substantial way than my New Comic Book Day posts, and I think spending some time describing and reviewing a recent release is a good start. I chose the new Eternals book because the first arc of the book ended in today’s release of the sixth issue, which means I’m not as ridiculously behind as I am on most other titles. I also knew absolutely nothing about the Eternals going into reading this book, and I wanted to learn about them prior to the release of their movie later this year. Without further ado, here is my Recap & Review of the first arc of Eternals (2021-), Only Death is Eternal.
