August was a bit of a challenging month for me. I only got to about four books and ARC that I have to wait until September to announce it. In retrospect, I had to find a new job. I did find one and it’s so much closer to where I live than my other one so I’m happy about that. I’m hoping that September will be much better – it has to be, it’s my birthday month. Anyway, on with the books I managed to get to during August. Continue reading “// August Wrap Up // September TBR #AugustWrapUp #TBR”
Jupiter and Her Moons by: BL Mute
Publication Date August 16, 2019 by Amazon Digital Services
The planet Jupiter has 79 known moons. 79 moons… that’s complete chaos within an atmosphere. But I have moons too. Moons that cause so much more than chaos.
My moons each have a different name. Sadness, anger, grief, addiction, and each one is in a constant orbit around me.
You see, my moons didn’t show up until I was 18. Before them, I was happy. I had great friends, a loving father and a boy with the most perfect green eyes who loved me.
I couldn’t have asked for anything more, but then tragedy struck and my life started to spiral.
I was thrown into a new world of drugs, sex, and alcohol, not caring about anyone who tried to save me. I took on a new persona, I abandoned everyone who loved me, I pushed until I couldn’t push anymore.
My name is Jupiter. Let me tell you about my moons.

I know I’m kind of late with this post. I heavily debated on whether to skip this month or not, but decided to go ahead and do one. I got, surprisingly, a lot of reading done in March. I have a couple of book tour reviews this month so I’ve been focusing on those, and I have a few ARCs that still need reviewing. Can I just do this for a living? I’d love to if I could.
