My Monday: 04/30/2018

This week has been busy, and once again it’s Monday. I’ve felt pretty good last week, and am looking forward to May. I’m still not sure if I’m going to have to get a job yet, or if I’ll be able to work from home, but I should know soon. In the mean time, I’m still trying to figure out my meds, as I’m stable, but just barely, and I don’t want to end up in another downward spiral because I was forced to work before I was ready.

In the mean time, I’m focused on getting my rabbits ready to sell, and to start getting a name in the community as rabbit owners. It’s a family business, so I’m hoping to get it off the grown.

While I figure things out, I’m taking advantage of my free time to catch up on ARCs and YA new release titles! Some of the books I’m reading were published the end of last year, while I was working, while others are coming out this year.

I’m getting along with my step-dad so far, and food-stamps also agreed to work with me, at least for this month, while they are threatening to only give me $50 a month, which isn’t enough for me to live on, but oh well, I’ll deal with that next month.

My current read?

26958226Even the Darkest Stars (Even the Darkest Stars #1)

Kamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the Emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.

But everything changes when the mysterious and eccentric River Shara, the greatest explorer ever known, arrives in her village and demands to hire Kamzin—not her older sister Lusha, as everyone had expected—for his next expedition. This is Kamzin’s chance to prove herself—even though River’s mission to retrieve a rare talisman for the emperor means climbing Raksha, the tallest and deadliest mountain in the Aryas. Then Lusha sets off on her own mission to Raksha with a rival explorer who is determined to best River, and Kamzin must decide what’s most important to her: protecting her sister from the countless perils of the climb or beating her to the summit.

The challenges of climbing Raksha are unlike anything Kamzin expected—or prepared for—with avalanches, ice chasms, ghosts, and even worse at every turn. And as dark secrets are revealed, Kamzin must unravel the truth of their mission and of her companions—while surviving the deadliest climb she has ever faced.

“Lengard is a secret government facility for extraordinary people,” they told me.

I believed them. That was my mistake.

There isn’t anyone else in the world like me.

I’m different. I’m an anomaly. I’m a monster.

For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four — ‘Jane Doe’ — has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word.

As Jane’s resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new — and unexpectedly kind — evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard’s mysterious ‘program’, discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot … and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world.
