Happy almost end of the first month of 2020!
After the kind of, and almost of success of my 2019 Goals list, I have decided to give it a go again. But this time, in widget form! So say goodbye to the tired format of last year, and say hello to my pretty checklist!
Hello pretty checklist.
The above image is one that will live on the side of my blog in a widget. When I am able to tick something off, I will update the image with one with pretty ticks so that I and everyone else who cares can keep track.
Remarkably similar to my Hopeful Reads of 2020 personal challenge – this 2020 Goals checklist is a passive one. I may talk about it or feature it if I mark off something but other than that, its job is to sit there and look pretty.
Hopefully you will see this 2020 Goals image on the side widget if you visit on a browser but if you visit my page while using a mobile or tablet, you will have to scroll right now to the bottom to check out this lovely content. But no worries, I am just happy that it is there for my own personal reference.
…to quietly breath down my neck and remind that I said I would get shit done this year…
Happy almost the end of 2019!
Let’s have a quick look at what I have accomplished this 2019. If you’ve been paying attention, I have been tracking my progress each month in my Small Snippets posts, so some of this may not be a surprise to you.
I have gone abysmally at rereading books this year 😰 While I did try with reading the first book of the Lunar Chronicles this year, sadly I did not pick up any other books in the below series.
❌The Lunar Chronicles by Melissa Meyer.
❌The whole Tortall series by Tamora Pierce.
❌The Seventh Tower series by Garth Nix.
❌Finish the Modern Faerie Tales series.

In the time since posting my first and second Anticipated Arrival Rundowns, I finally have access to and gotten around to two things on my list. Check out the below two items I’ve been waiting for and finally experienced ❤
Fence by P.S. Pacat
Post: Anticipated Arrival: C.S. Pacat’s Fence Vol.1
It has been pretty much a year since this Anticipated Arrival post and I can update that I have finally gotten around to reading this gem. I am a big fan of P.S. Pacat and her Captive Prince series (I totally have signed copies 😱😍) so anything new by her was a must read. And Fence really is a must read!
I finished the first volume of Fence in one sitting and fell in love. I was lucky enough to have Volume 2 sitting next to me and have just recently received my preorder of Volume 3 😄 For such small volumes they pack in a lot of story. I found all the characters very compelling, the art beautiful, and I really just want more so I can see where the rest of the story leads.
I would really recommend picking up Fence if you see it!

Supernatural polyamorous shenanigans – I’m hooked
Continue reading “Currently Consuming:When the Night Comes”
About: When the Night Comes is an episodic fantasy otome game with supernatural elements.
You are a Hunter, and you’ve been called to the quiet town of Lunaris to assist the local Enforcers with an investigation into a series of increasingly unsettling murders.
Immerse yourself in the world of Witches, Vampires, Demons and Lycan’s as you slowly unravel the mystery that lies deep within the roots of the town.
The question is, are the creatures of the night the ones you should really be afraid of?
You might even fall in forbidden love along the way.Taken from the When the Night Comes Offical Site
What is it?!
Tropico 6 y’all!
The latest game in the Tropico series! I loved number 5 but sadly did not obsessively play it as much as Tropico 4.
There isn’t really a blurb for the game but if you really want to break it down – think of Tropico as Sim City but if it was run by a Cuban dictator. It’s a world building simulation set in a banana republic kind of island where you try and juggle the political, economical, and social issues of the island as you try and stay in power throughout the ages.
Continue reading “Anticipated Arrival: Tropico 6”
El Presidente is back!
Play on large archipelagos for the first time in the series. Manage multiple islands at the same time and adapt to various new challenges.
Send your agents on raids to foreign lands to steal world wonders and monuments, to add them to your collection.
Build bridges, construct tunnels and transport your citizens and tourists in taxis, buses and aerial cable cars. Tropico 6 offers completely new transportation and infrastructure possibilities.
Customize the looks of your palace at will and choose from various extras.
Tropico 6 features a revised research system focusing on the political aspects of being the world’s greatest dictator.
Election speeches are back! Address the people and make promises that you can’t possibly keep.
I have a few things that I would like to get done in 2019 and since I like making lists, I thought I would share them with you all. I really want to focus on getting things done that I have been putting off for ages – a lot of these things are ones I’ve previously started or got half way through and then gave up. So 2019 is the year of the reread – rewatch – and the replay.
It’s not like I have enough to read as it is, I want to go back and give a bunch of series a reread. They’re either ones that I never finished or ones from my childhood that I want to see if they hold up.
The below aren’t really specific titles but rather authors or series that I have seen around and I want to see what they’re like.
✅ Read a Lori Foster book.
✅ Finally start a Katie Ruggle book (also known as Katie Allen)
✅ A Dreamspun Beyond book 😓 It used to be a subscription but now they’re single purchase books. Waaaah, I wanted to try a subscription 😋
✅ Watch more than the first episode of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
I have so many games that I am half way through and really need to finish. I have a tendency to not finish a game even though I am really near the end because I think I need to keep playing and experiencing more of the story.
- Mass Effect 3 – my save file from Mass Effect 2 corrupted 😥 and I need to go back and play the last boss battle to get it back. It was such a blow that I haven’t been back but I just really love the series and need to finish it!
✅ Dream Daddy.

It’s the 28th of April – which means:
IT’S TABLETOP DAY!
For those of you who don’t know, the internationally celebrated day is a chance for people to come together and celebrate, share, and play tabletop games.
What are tabletop games I hear you ask? Well tabletop games are anything which can be played on a table 😛 This includes board games, card games, role playing games (such as Dungeons and Dragons), dice games, and many more!
If the only tabletop games you can think of are Monopoly and poker, then please do yourself a favour and research some new games. I am saying this, not only because there are some amazing games out there but because Monopoly is the literal worse 😉

Aside from my Small Snippet of 2017, this is my first Small Snippet post that features a month in a little over a year and a half. Lots of things have happened in between and I have experienced a variety of different and interesting entertainments. However, starting off the year, my 2018 February has been a fun one.
Adultolescence by Gabbie Hannah.
I will start off by saying that I have no idea who the author of this book is, only that they have a YouTube channel. So with absolutely no background information, I can say that I absolutely adore the poems in this book. They’re funny, modern, and sometimes insightful.

A sweet, kick-started, gender fluid, cat themed, dating sim that will melt your heart.
About: Hustle Cat is a dating sim created by the team at Date Nighto. Originally on Kickstarter, the game is one that pushes past gender binaries and provides male, female, and trans pronouns for the main character. In addition to this there are two custom characters that you can select from which, once again, allow you to select from neutral representations and racial characteristics.
