So July was a month. Overall, it was just more 2020. The upside is I got a new job! Yay for me! But what about my reading? In July, I read six books: two novels, one non-fiction book, three graphic novels, and one poetry book. Unfortunately, I also (tentatively) DNF’d a book. Overall, the quality [...]
In 2019, I decided to read for quality over quantity. Combined with the fact that I’ve started reading more adult books and have gotten better at picking out books I think I’ll like, this has made for a great reading year.

Hello, hello, hello! It’s time to wrap up all the books I read in June. Last month I read three novels and two short stories. I was in a bit of a reading slump and went through a period where I didn’t want to read anything. I blame my broken ankle. Fortunately, I can report [...]

Despite my grueling reading year, I have a wonderful announcement to make: I completed my reading challenge! That’s right, I read 100 books this year (several of which were graphic novels and poetry collections)! To celebrate, I am doing nothing. However, I do still have a few books I need to talk about before the [...]
Well, well, well. Here we are at the end of my 2017 worst lists. Of course, it’s not the end of all my lists, but it’s the last of the bottom-of-the-barrel content. 2017 has been a rough reading year for me. I gave myself a reading goal of one hundred, which was a mistake. I’m [...]
My first blog post in which I immediately alienate my audience.
