The Most Emotional Books I’ve Read

Patreon Adventures where the topic is decided by my Patrons over on Patreon. Once a month I add an extra post to my schedule, and it could be about anything.

It’s been awhile since the last Patreon Adventure and for that I am sorry! One of my biggest goals for 2020 is to remain committed to this particular series because it is so much fun to have some content driven by the people who visit!

This month we are talking about EMOTIONAL BOOKS. The books that made me FEEL ALL THE THINGS, both positive and negative! Many thanks to Destiny @ Howling Libraries for suggesting this post topic and to my patrons for casting your votes!

Going on a Patreon Adventure: The Story of the Hotel del Coronado

Going on a Patreon Adventure is a series where the topic is decided by my Patrons over on Patreon. Once a month I add an extra post to my schedule, and it could be about anything.

Greetings friends and Happy Halloween! It’s my literal favorite day of the year, and I am celebrating the day watching horror movies and trying to finish one more book before the month ends. I am sad that spooky season is ending, but I am spooky 24/7/365.

This month my patrons voted for me to talk about the haunted Hotel del Coronado and my experiences when I worked there in 2006. The Hotel Del has long since been one of my favorite places in San Diego because of it’s Victorian architecture, but it got infinitely cooler when I learned it was haunted. All photos in this post were taken by me.

Going on a Patreon Adventure: Why Spike is Better than Angel (also: burritos)

Greetings friends and welcome to a new monthly feature where the topic is decided by my Patrons over on Patreon. Once a month I will add an extra post to my schedule, and it could be about anything. Honestly, I was expecting something more Serious than this, but the people want what the people want!

If you’ve been around for awhile, you might know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is tied for my favorite show of all-time with the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. I am vocal in my strong preference for Spike and love for James Marsters, and now I get to tell you why. If you like seeing me pick about themes and theorize about science fiction, this post is for you… and if you like pictures of food, this post is also for you!
