PURCHASE REVIEW
Another dub. Well… not entirely.

“Conventionally Yours” featured my favorite trope, enemies to lovers and it’s primary focus is on Conrad and Alden, polar opposites. The dynamic duo take a road trip to compete at a convention and in the midst of their adventure, emotions flare.

It was sorta kinda cute I give it that and there wasn’t much to complain about with the characters but… everything else was kind of meh. There lacked sparks between the main characters, the gaming aspect left me yawning, the cross county road trip was boring and just about everything in between left me in a daze. The story just dragged on and wasn’t up to my speed.

Sadly, this didn’t leave a lasting impression on me and was a complete miss.

Kalbimi açmama izin vermedin duygularımı dinlemedin ben de hepsini satırlara döktüm duygularım parmak uçlarımda dans ediyor ve sen bir gün bu satırlara denk geleceksin beni tanıyacaksın nasılsa herkes yaşattığı acıyı iyi tanır

  • Laid in bed all day
  • Played BitLife on my phone for about 30 minutes
  • Watched an episode of Dance Moms
  • Read Clockwork Prince for 1h 21m 52s and read 99 pages
  • Wrote half a page in my journal

I went to bed at 4 AM and slept most of the day. I didn’t expect to. I know I woke up around noon the first time and I just didn’t want to get up, so I went back to sleep. I kept waking up and then kept trying to go back to sleep. I probably spent the last hour daydreaming and finally got up around 7 PM. I did not want to get up. And I still feel tired. Is it the stressy and depressies or am I sick or just lazy? I hadn’t eaten all day, so I started cooking and began reading while I waited for my food to finish. I ate while watching Dance Moms and then read for another 40 minutes. I stopped reading so I could write in my journal and do my updates. I am thinking of going back to bed.

I don’t think we will do painting tomorrow, but we might move my mom’s room around. She says her shoulder still hurts, so I told her to call the doctor on Monday and arrange a checkup. We have indigent care that is good until September and I told her now that places are opening back up, she should take advantage of it. Hopefully, she can get an appointment soon and figure out what is wrong with her shoulder. I think she pulled a muscle or something, she can’t raise her arm very high and then it constantly hurts. I would like to finish Clockwork Prince tomorrow, but that means I have to attempt to read for that long. Don’t know if I got it in me.

Miniatures have always both fascinated and intimidated me. And then I saw this kit. A library. Come on. This was meant for me. Because I immediately saw the opportunity to customize it, to make it truly mine. With the books that I love.

So I present to you my first ever miniature room!

I used the Sam’s Study kit from Robotime, and I personalized it heavily. I hated the look of their books, they were bland. So was their artwork for the picture frames. There is exactly 3 pieces of paper from their kit in my design :P I also painted the furniture, upholstered the chair with an old piece of jeans instead of their cheap red fabric, and used spare fabric for the coffee table and the box. I changed the wallpaper, the flooring, and I added a coffee cup.

The cover scanning, Photoshop and image search alone took me around 40 hours. I loved every minute of it, haha! The assembly and painting took another 35 hours.

All the books made into miniatures are meaningful to me, all the artwork as well.

For the shelves, many titles are ones I own a copy of, but many are also filler because they’re pretty, and because most of the books I buy are in ebook format. And finding images of book spines online IS HARD. There are books I would’ve wanted to feature, but just couldn’t find a picture of the spine since they are not that mainstream. As I was listing these books, I had to refrain from also adding (OMG you have to read this!!) and I want to reread them all. Like right now.

Here follows a list of all the books I featured in this project, as well as all the artwork. If you see something I forgot in crediting the artists, something I got wrong, please let me know.

Lottie is murdered and her friend Anthony, has borrowed her laptop. He doesn’t understand who could possibly have killed her. Anthony starts exploring the laptop and finds videos recorded in the year before Lottie died. It seems she has treated the videos as an online diary of sorts. She reveals secrets that Anthony now must figure out if they were worth killing for. It sounds like a good thriller but something was just off for me-perhaps the writing style. I wasn’t invested in the characters and just didn’t feel the need to read quickly to find out the truth. Not bad but not great. Thanks to Netgalley and Black Cat Ink Press for the arc.

The  conclusion to Marcus and Emma’s story was great read! They truly are the  epitome of opposites attract, but they also suck at communication. Emma is  plagued with doubts while Marcus oozes confidence. Emma is straightforward  and upfront and Marcus is used to manipulating things to his advantage. Both  take what the other says the wrong way. Both have doubts when it comes to the  others feelings. Both love each other without reserve, well, at least without  actually telling the other. Of course this all cumulates into a massive  situation that could drive them apart but has them finally being honest with  each other. Queue the HEA and a very satisfying epilogue!
