5 Things About Alex

  1. I plan on reading at least 75 books this year.  I’ve already read two, almost three books already. Check out my progress on Instagram. If you want to know which book challenge group I am a member of, click here. That link will take you to the most amazing and hard-core book reading challenge there is. If the monthly challenges aren’t for you, check out the 3 Degrees challenge.  That’s the one I am doing this year. In the past, I have done the Goodreads and the Popsugar challenges. WWRC or Words and Whimsy Reading Challenge is my favorite.
  2. I am a die-hard Simmer. My addiction to the Sims 4 has been a decade-long obsession. There are three types of players: regular players, CAS, and builders. Regular players are the ones who play the scenarios and create stories within their gameplay. The CAS or Create a Sim people are all about the fashion, makeup, and hairstyles of their Sims. And then there are the builders—like me. We will build anything from cafes and tiny homes to cemeteries and castles. 
  3. I may or may not be obsessed with Anne Boleyn and the Tudor Dynasty. You decide. Seriously though, I am obsessed with the Tudor dynasty and I read everything I can get my hands on. Claire Ridgeway is one of my most used sources for the Tudor Trilogy I am writing. 
  4. I have lupus. Yet, I still make goals and plans…because you never know, I just might make them all. Most days aren’t bad, but the last three, I could barely move without excruciating pain. I couldn’t work, I just laid there, binge-watched Queer Eye on Netflix, and cried. Not from the pain. Those makeovers always turn me into a blubbering mess. Lupus is a nasty disease, you can learn more about it here.
  5. With long or epic books, I usually get the physical, the Audible, and the Kindle version of the same book so I can read, or listen anywhere on any device. Because I’m like that. I also discovered Chirp, a membership subscription that sends you daily deals on audiobooks. Many of them are under 4 dollars. They have a great selection of titles across genres. Sign up for their emails for even more spectacular offers. Also, if you consistently write book reviews and are looking for ARCs, check out Book Sirens; you can choose your own ARCs. It’s awesome and I have enjoyed the books I have reviewed. 

If there is anything you want to know, please don’t hesitate to ask. Until next time.
