Playing the catch up game

by Linda on 09/30/2018

After trying to finish school with a “passing” grade and squeezing in 400+ obsessive hours of Splatoon 2 since July 2017 (not to mention the highly addictive Monster Hunter World in March of this year), I’m finally back to catch up on my list of books, anime, and games. Here’s a semi-exhaustive list. I’ll have to add onto this list or make a separate page to house my “to do list” since it’s a little difficult to concentrate while trying to type a blog post and watch Shokugeki no Soma s03e23 (I mean…who IS this Morpheus looking dude and WTF is umami?!). Perhaps I’ll post mini reviews after I finish each item.

Stuff I’ve been OBSESSED with FOR AGES

  1. Splatoon 2
  2. Nintendo Switch
  3. Indie games
  4. Fountain pens


  1. Hollywood Dead by Richard Kadrey
  2. Temeraire books by Naomi Novak
    • Crucible of Gold
    • Blood of Tyrants
    • League of Dragons
  3. Paper Magician
    • Glass Magician
    • Master Magician
    • Plastic Magician
  4. Lord of the Rings – All of the damned books (it’s quite depressing)
  5. The Sprawl Trilogy by William Gibson
    • Neuromancer (Currently rereading due to its complexity and length of time I’ve waited to read the rest)
    • Count Zero
    • Mona Lisa Overdrive
  6. The Drizzt Do’Urden books – It’s been a while since I’ve read them, but I mean, this dude is hot except on the short side. Damn.


  1. Black Clover
  2. Gran Blue (They said it’s pretty entertaining and funny…we’ll see.)
  3. I’m not even going to bother with the 300+ episode type anime like HxH, Fairy Tale, One Piece, etc. Just feel like the yield isn’t worth the trouble. And you shall find me mauled to death by fanboys tomorrow…catch my corpse on CNN @ 9 tomorrow.


  1. The Witcher 1-3
  2. The Order 1886
  3. Fire Emblem
    • Awakening
    • Fates
    • Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
    • Warriors (I’m not sure this one even belongs on this list, but I don’t have a Samurai Warriors lists.)
  4. Rayman Legends
  5. Bayonetta 1 + 2
  6. The Last Guardian
  7. Horizon Zero Dawn
  8. Uncharted Collection
  9. Ni No Kuni 1 + 2

    Umami is that flavor in cooking that is like THE (all caps) FLAVOUR (more caps plus the u for umami). It is the one thing that brings everything else together and makes the flavour pop. One of your besties is a chef of course I’m going to answer this.

    I mean yeah I get that it’s the flavor but which flavor? Salty is salty and bitter is better and so on and so forth. But what does umami taste like? HOW can I describe accurately?

    Also damned British with the U’s sprinkled all over everything.
