Last Couple Books Read in 2021

It’s been a while since I’ve done a review, and whenever this happens, I feel as if I’ve forgotten how to write them. That’s how I feel now. It’s partly due to not having written one in a while and also having forgotten some details about the books I read. But, since my plan with this blog is to chat about every book I read, I’d like to post something about the books I read during the last months of 2021.

Those last months were a very busy, very stressful time for me, which is why I’ve delayed chatting about the books until now. Things got so overwhelming that I didn’t blog as much as I usually did and had a bout of reading slumpiness that lasted until… a few weeks ago. It was probably my longest reading slump. But now that I really feel back to my old self, I’d like to catch up on the MANY blogging and reading things I wanted to do since the slump hit — starting with these reviews.

I read all of these back in September last year, so I’ve forgotten much.

Cool Cakes on Cake Wrecks and Mental_Floss

Here are some cool cakes that I saw on Cake Wrecks and Mental_Floss websites:

The theme for this Cake Wrecks post is “back to school.” This is my favorite because of how realistic it is. I have a hard time believing it is a cake. It looks like a real calculator. If there were numbers on the screen, I probably wouldn’t believe it’s a cake at all. Make sure to check out the other cakes here.

This cake is from Mental_Floss’ “11 Cakes Inspired by Comic Books” post. This one was my favorite. It has Wonder Woman busting out of her comic book and becoming real. It’s an awesome cake. Very creative. Check out the other 10 cakes here.
