Sparks is the most useless man ever like oh my god I’m so glad I’m reading this now and not when I was some moony teenager who would’ve been into that.  Dear god I hope Moon realizes he’s not worth her time.  I need to hurry up and finish this because it’s due December 9 and I don’t have any more renewals left.  I plan to buy the novel anyway as well as the sequel, though it’s a bit more expensive than most.  I thought this was one half of a duology with The Summer Queen (whom I’m assuming is going to be Moon), but there are apparently four novels in the Cycle.  According to the friend who put me onto this, they have more to do with the Blues aka space police that Moon and Sparks interact with, but I like those characters so I’m okay with that.

I’m in the last part of this book, which ironically has to do with the creation of the world, but not so ironically with the end of the world.  Really it’s about how it’s all kind of a cycle.


So the rona is back full force and I’m debating whether or not I’m going to go over to my sister-in-law’s for Thanksgiving dinner.  She’s pretty careful especially since she has an almost toddler and is pregnant, but I pretty much went nowhere and saw no one the entirety of March and April.  My husband’s company is about to pull the trigger on them working from home (why they haven’t done it already is honestly beyond me but whatever), and we just got an email at my company saying we’re remote until at least April 2021, so…yeah.  All of you who have to be out and deal with the ignorant public, you have my best wishes because people are fucking ridiculous.  Some of them can’t accept that covid is real and math exists.  I try not to get involved in these kinds of “fights,” but sometimes I can’t help but jump into the stirred pot.
