Akselmo Games (Games made by my fiance!)

aksuposti

Most of you probably don’t know since the last time I posted about this was while I was still on Blogger, but my fiance Akselmo makes games. He currently has three games available on itch.io, so I thought I’d introduce all of them here. They all have a bit of a retro game vibe because that’s what he loves, and all of them are free so I encourage giving them a try if you’re interested!

He’s also currently working on a bigger FPS game project called Ironscale, so if you like the games below and want to follow updates on new things, you can:

Tiny Summer Book Haul

title

Hello I am back from the dead. I ended up taking a little blogging break because I just had no motivation for anything or anything to write about. But I’m back now, with a little blog makeover too!

I noticed I’d ended up hoarding a bit more books than usual this summer (especially in July) so I thought I’d make a little post about what I’ve got. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen all the physical books but I’ve got a couple of ebooks as well! Continue reading “Tiny Summer Book Haul”

July Video Game Wrap Up

julyvidya

What do you mean July is almost over already? Where did it go? I guess the beginning of the month disappeared because of life things and the rest of it just melted away thanks to the heatwave we’ve been having. I’ve been doing a lot of couch gaming simply because sitting in a leather chair near a warm computer has been just too unpleasant! Continue reading “July Video Game Wrap Up”

My Blog’s Name in Books Tag

taggg

I’ve been seeing this tag going around and it sounded fun so I decided to do it for giggles too. My blog name isn’t horribly long so this shouldn’t be too hard hopefully hahah.

Rules:
• Spell out your blog’s name.
• Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter.
NOTE: You cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodreads TBR. Don’t cheat my friends!!!!! Continue reading “My Blog’s Name in Books Tag”

Game Review: Detroit: Become Human

detroit

Funny story: I had zero plans of playing this game and all I knew about it was a couple of dumb clips in a video by a Finnish Youtuber, but then my friend offered to borrow the game to me (which I had totally forgotten was possible because I’m so used to only digital copies) and it turned out to be really good.

Down The TBR Hole #3

tbhrhole

It’s time for another adventure to my Goodreads! Because it’s the never ending kind. Down The TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. All my previous Down The TBR Hole posts can be found here.

“Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!”

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Youtube Artists You Should Check Out!

youtu

A couple of months ago I joined a Discord server called The Art Room, which is a community for artists who make Youtube videos and was created by HulloAlice and Jellie Bee and the mod team also includes Monique ReneeBrushes and Bunnies and Chloe Rose Art! I have met a bunch of really cool artists on there and wanted to give a little shoutout to some people with not super big channels whose content I’ve enjoyed! Honestly, I’d love to just list everyone but that would make a hell of a long post, but hey nothing stops me from making more of these if you guys are interested!  Continue reading “Youtube Artists You Should Check Out!”

ARC Review: Spinning Silver

36896898

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik 

Synopsis:
Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders… but her father isn’t a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife’s dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty–until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers’ pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed–and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it’s worth–especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.

Game Thoughts: The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind

20180615220701_1

I bought the Morrowind expansion for ESO pretty much immediately when it came out (or maybe a day or two before to get the goodies?) last summer and I guess I have been in a bit of an MMO slump but it took me a year to finish the main quest in it. But I finally did it! And it only took me like a few days once I just sat down and started questing… Continue reading “Game Thoughts: The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind”

Books I’ve Read This Year So Far

Since the year is halfway done it’s time for a little bookish update! Probably not a very impressive one compared to many, but to me this has felt like a really good book year so far. I mean I’m 4 books ahead of schedule on my Goodreads challenge!
