Week 3 of COVID-19

Week #3 of being stuck at home due to the coronavirus... been catching up on my last school assignments from home, playing Bejewelled, this little arcade-style game I used to like as a kid. I've also been watching the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire. Grim, dark, sometimes disturbing show, but a really powerful show, too.  

They're calling for this social distancing to last until June at least. What to do next? I think I'll buy more vodka peach iced tea... and I'll stay here lying in bed, playing nostalgic computer games and doing nothing of value all day, like a stiff.


About Me

My photo
Hello, my name is Rebecca Maye McNutt, and I'm an author and student from Nova Scotia. Born in 1998, I write mostly short stories, as well as an occult horror novel titled Necromancy Cottage, or, The Black Art of Gnawing On Bones. I also review books on Goodreads, mainly occult fiction, fantasy novels and horror. I'm a graduate of the Nova Scotia Community College in library information technology, and I'm currently majoring in Law, Justice and Society (BA) at Dalhousie University, with a minor in Esoteric and Occult Traditions at Dalhousie and the University of King's College. I'm a Gen Z conservative libertarian and a capitalist studying liberal arts of all things. I am hoping to get into law school upon completing my undergrad degree.

River of Time
it was amazing
I was initially drawn to this book because I recognized the name Jon Swain from the 1980's film The Killing Fields. Swain, a British journalist and photographer, was portrayed in that by Julian Sands. That said, this book is about the re...
Social Creature
liked it
I really wanted to love this book; I love books that take place in New York City and from the description it seemed like it would be deep and intriguing. Social Creature ended up reminding me of Heavenly Creatures crossed with The Craft ...
Robyn
liked it
Robyn isn't a particularly outstanding book, more or less your garden variety teen romance story, but still it's nostalgic. There was only ever one water park within my province when I was a teenager, Magic Mountain (kids called it Tragi...
Because I Am Furniture
really liked it
This is the kind of book that they need to have in schools, because child abuse and domestic violence is still alarmingly common and still not a whole lot of kids speak out about it because they don't know how or what the consequences wi...
Thirteen is Too Young to Die
liked it
This was very morbid - and is it just me, or was there a strange subgenre of death books back in the 1980's-1990's? I discovered others, including Is My Sister Dying?, and they all seem to follow the same pattern of drama and upset. Th...
