Happy Gay Friday: This Week’s High 5
This HGF post is going to be completely random about me, my friends and my books. :)
Let’s start with the boring part, the part about me: the above picture is one of my drawings made on my iPad and the isolation it conveys is kind of how I’m still feeling.
Mentally I’m not doing too well yet, my emotions are still all over the place for no particular reason. And that last bit is the worst part of it. Because without a reason - well, without a reason that I know off - it’s difficult to do something about it. My doctor thinks I need to rest, physically, because my mental unbalance is most likely caused by a physical fatigue, which in its turn is caused by a mental fatigue. Still making sense? Well, I don’t understand it either, but than again, nothing makes sense to me these days…
My boss said I look depressed, but I think that’s too big of a word. My love is still the best husband in the world, being very understanding and all. My friend gives me advise about what I should and shouldn't do. And I… I just try to make the best of every day over and over again. Btw, drawing helps me to find a little bit of rest in my head. :)
Lis about it this week, because she was experiencing a reading slump of her own and she too came out of it by the books of the same author: Charlie Richards. Lis and I are both devouring Charlie’s books one after another. Lis is already halfway through her backlist, while I’ve only read a few contemporaries and a couple of her Wolves of Stone Ridge series. I remember Tam talking about this series a little while ago on her website, and her description piqued my interest. I don’t remember how Tam voiced it exactly but I remembered it as the perfect books to read when you want something easy, fun and entertaining. Something like the books by Stephani Hecht are for me as well: Comfort reads. You know what you can expect, they're not too original but decently written and with fun characters. Lis told me that she felt like writing Charlie Richards a thank you note for getting her out of her reading slump. I don’t know if she did, but she can sign that note with my name as well. :D
twitter friend of mine, Mama Kitty from Mama Kitty Reviews, is having a new feature coming up on her website, a (bi)monthly guest appearance of m/m author Andrew Grey. It’s called ‘Ask the Gay Romance Author’. Do you have a question for Andrew Grey that you’re dying to ask? You can either email Mama Kitty or fill out the form on her website to ask him anything! See this post on MKR.
Lis will be going and she promised to post about her experience here on the blog. Yay! I’m also counting on peeps like Tam and Blaine tweeting or blogging about the UK Meet. :)
The UK Meet anthology, Lashings of Sauce, will be reviewed by me and Lis here on the blog around the time of the Meet.
this link this week to 30 free books from Silver Publishing. It’s a great opportunity to try some new (to me) authors. So, I'm happy to share the link with you too. Enjoy!
Happy Gay Friday!
