very extremely late with this, but I'm part of Authors for Palestine, a bookish fundraiser for three families in Gaza chosen from the Operation Olive Branch spreadsheet. please donate if you can and share if you can't! the fundraiser is open through June 20.
the website explains things fully, but all donors of at least $5 (regardless of location) will get 16 ebooks and 3 store discounts. additionally, if you donate at least $5 (U.S.-only), $10 (international), or $15 (international), you'll be entered to win an extra book bundle (comprised of both print and digital books as well as some extra goodies).
a signed hardcover of The Remarkable Retirement of Edna Fisher with gold edges lovingly hand-painted by myself is part of the Dark Fiction #1 bundle in Tier 1 (minimum $15 donation, open internationally).
to learn more, get the links to the fundraisers, submit proof of donation, and see all the book bundles, click here: link to website

I hate how booktok has made all books have romance in them like no- your fantasy dragon riding adventure book where there's a great plot without the romance. You don't always need it.

The area where I sat was slick with dampness. It wasn’t just the ground was moist — all around me, it felt like it was bursting: with the leaves of the trees, the undergrowth, the countless microorganisms under the ground, the flat bugs scrawling over the surface, the winged insects flitting through the air, the birds perched on branches, even the breath of the larger animals that inhabited the deeper forest.

Sunday, 16th of June
Finished reading all French articles I had to read as preparation for my exam
Finished the Google Project Management Course and worked on my Data Science Certificate
Wrote 4 compositions in French
Did one oral composition in French and sent it to my professor for avaluation
Finished reading Don Paterson’s ‘Orpheus’ and started reading ‘Swimming in the Dark’
Notes of the day:
- Tomorrow I have to catch a train to visit some far off private school where I’ll do a presentation as part of my internship, though I am not necessarily bothered by the work load in general I find myself quite exhausted by the amount of travelling I have to do. I am adapting and that’s what matters, I haven’t restocked on any of my vitamins for a while and my eating habits are not the healthiest so perhaps it’s all a matter of lack of energy.
- My French tutor/professor has been giving me really good scores for my practice oral and written compositions and I don’t know why but a part of me insists on believing that those marks aren’t real and that it is all a trick to lead me into a false state of comfort.
- I have been trying to get back into reading, I have been writing some reviews in both my personal blog and my Goodreads account. It brings me a weird sense of harmony.

cr: the hobbit by j.r.r. tolkien
This has been on my tbr forever. Literally, forever. I thought it was about time I started to learn more about Tolkien’s middle earth, and I thought where a better place to start? I know the general plot: hobbit helps some dwarves retrieve gold and jewels… something about a dragon? But I am very excited to learn more about the fascinating creatures, settings and lore that Tolkien’s universe holds.
