Hello again, I bet you didn’t think I’d be back so soon. In an effort to be more consistent this year, I’ve decided to write once a month at the end of every month, reviewing all the titles I read that month. By the end of the year, I’m hoping that you’ll have heard from me … Continue reading Me, Again: January Books
Hello. It’s been too long. But I have good news, I’m alive and I have been reading. At first, I didn’t write a 2016 recap because I was moping; I finished 97 books last year, a disappointing three books short of my goal of 100. And then I wasn’t writing a recap because work got … Continue reading I’M ALIVE!
Hi! Happy Thanksgiving/December/early Christmas/Hanukah/winter/whatever you celebrate! I’m feeling very tentatively excited because I really think I can meet my goal of 100 books this year (knock on wood for me). I have 14 more rapid-reviews for you below. In a perfect world, I’ll have time for two more blog posts before the year is done; … Continue reading The Home Stretch – 14 More Reviews

So I put off blogging about one trio of books to move onto the next trio, and then put off blogging about that … Continue reading Rapid Fire Reviews: 5 Sentences or Less
I finished three more books! The theme of this trio was "books that start with A" (I can't be creative all of the time). Book #45 was After Alice by Gregory Maguire (the fairytale); book #46 was Atonement by Ian McEwan (an absolutely amazing one); book #47 was called Angels by Denis Johnson (the sad one). Honestly, I want to talk about Atonement for this entire post, because that … Continue reading A Fairytale, An Amazing Story, & A Sad One
Hi! I have been very scattered with this blog, and for that I apologize. It’s been a weird (but wonderful!) couple of reading weeks. I also just love being outside in the summer, meaning I don’t get to spend as much time as I’d like reading. My pace has slowed considerably. If you’ll recall, my … Continue reading Short Stories & Secret Projects
