Kassondra managed to figure out what was wrong with the BUJO pages that we had been trying to print yesterday and was able to fix them and print them so I went and picked them up from her before heading back to the house. I had expected to spend most of today as we had yesterday afternoon and been trying to print those pages all day, so this was a pleasant surprise and also opened up my day completely.

It was then that I discovered a TikTok sharing a deleted scene from Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas, a personal favorite book and one I reviewed over the Summer after reading it. This deleted scene about an ex of the protagonist’s love interest and a particularly funny scene involving chocolate cake gave me the instant feeling that I had to reread the series again starting with Heir of Fire. I never realized how many times Maas offhandedly references this scene which didn’t exist anymore until after I had read the scene and was going back through the novel. I truly enjoyed seeing the beginning of two of my favorite character’s love story over again but it was a drain on my productivity since I did absolutely nothing else.

I have said this before on the blog, but seeing as my readership has grown since then I will mention again that I read like a person who is dying and is incapable of doing anything else. I either am so bored by a book that I eek through the pages a few at a time putting the book down repeatedly and getting distracted by other things or I fall so hard into a story that eating, sleeping, and doing anything but reading becomes less important and I devour novels and series within hours or days. I read almost the entirety of Sarah J. Maas’s published works within the span of a week and a half, my sleep pattern was thrown completely off and I ate all of my meals in my room while reading. The only novel of hers that I have yet to read is Crescent City, which is on my To Be Read for the next couple of months, though she will be launching the next book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series next month so perhaps I will be rereading that series again before the launch. I also have a tendency to reread novels I already know that I like rather than reading new novels because I am so often disappointed, though after having discovered these over the Summer thanks to the book subsection of TikTok, I can’t help but to feel as though I’m missing out on a great many amazing novels. A few days ago I purchased a few books from Half Price Books and Book Outlet that should be arriving any day now and there are quite a few recommendations from BookTok that I have high hopes for.
