Hey look at us! We’re back again, starting a round of nonfiction picks. The first is Michaela’s pick, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlyn Doughty. We all know how I feel about squeamish things, so this book was just so much fun.
Wherein Gretchen and Michaela discuss the current trend of booktubers discussing their fears and struggles when it comes to being on youtube.
In which I discuss plot convenience, Name of the Wind, struggles with reading and the double standards between nonfiction and fiction.
Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.
I thought I could do a little book haul for this week, but it turns out I’ve acquired a looooot more books than I originally thought. Also, at the end there is a little life update for you guys about my most recent crazy life adventures and why I’ve got a new background to my videos. Remember to leave a comment and tell me what to read next!
Back again! With more nonfiction! I’m really sorry I can’t kick this but I hope you like it! I loved this book more than Princess Diarist, especially because it had more cohesion to it. It just wasn’t entirely what I expected, either…
Also, I really thought I’d fixed the video proportion problem but it still exported this way? I may need more technical expertise than I have with the new editor I’m using…
I had such high hopes for this audiobook, but was genuinely disappointed. Carrie Fisher is a beautiful writer, but this book was not what I was expected at all.
Also, I’m using a new camera and apparently exported the video in the wrong size. Whoops. Don’t worry about it. Don’t watch my face. Just … enjoy I guess?
