So this video is kind of long and wonky, but that’s what happens when you’re rusty. I have since fixed the problem with my video editor. It took a tech team. No, I don’t know why. Let’s move on.
I cry near the end here. Whatever the quality, the content is important to me. Listen, I’ve been keeping it real this long and I might as well keep it that way. This is the story of the impact of depression and money struggles–with a happy ending!
I did it! I finally did it! Here’s my review of Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I have a loooot of really strong feelings, though it is spoiler free so if you’ve read it and want to chat hit me up in the comments!
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen discuss a handfull of books that they feel are great books to bring to the BEACH or just generally read during those hot summer months.
I’ve been adding a weird hodgepodge of books together recently, and I’ve got enough now to make a new book haul interesting. Enjoy this mash up of history nonfiction and YA!
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?
