Ramblings serves as a series I turn to during moments of low energy or writer's block. Here is what is jumbling around in my brain right now, along with a few updates.

  • I recently experienced a different type of reading slump. I was thoroughly enjoying 'Empire of the Vampire' by Jay Kristoff, relishing every page. However, in my eagerness to prolong the experience, I found myself unable to read at all. Each time I picked up the book, I knew the end was growing closer. It seems ironic, especially considering I had the sequel waiting for me.

  • Amazon Prime finally released its television adaptation of Fallout. I binged all the episodes as soon as they were released. I have never enjoyed or been more excited watching a TV show. Over the last few years, I have grown accustomed to being greatly disappointed in film. Fallout was everything I wanted and more. My only complaint was that I NEED MORE! 

  • I never got around to sharing some recent updates and changes here. If you're following me on Instagram, you probably already noticed. Wondermajica has been around since 2016, and it's now 2024. Believe it or not, it took me all this time to settle on a logo. Ridiculous? Absolutely. But hey, better late than never, right? Oh, and here's another milestone: I've finally mustered the courage to use a real picture of myself as my author photo. For someone who's not fond of seeing their own face (trust me, this was hard for me), this was a major feat. But hey, progress is progress, no matter how small.

  • I'm in the process of rebuilding and reorganizing my Pinterest account. If you were following me there, I kindly ask you to hit that follow button again. My aim is to create an account that better reflects who I am now and is more organized.

  • Additionally, I've made the decision to switch up my content once again. For the past couple of years, I've mainly focused on book reviews, inadvertently leading many to perceive this blog solely as a book-centric platform. However, I've never strictly labeled it as such. While a significant portion of my content does revolve around reviews, they're not limited to just books. I tend to immerse myself deeply in my interests, and lately, books have taken the spotlight. However, I'll soon be returning to the diverse content approach Wondermajica was originally known for. (Don't worry though, there'll still be plenty of book reviews!)
