Reading Round-up: June 2021

June has been an absolute riot of activity, and I almost didn't get this post written. My brother got married, we're planning for our trip, we bought a car somehow??? The mechanics of buying the car are of course understood but the buying of the car was kind of a surprise. Anyway, there's a lot... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: May 2021

Back in early May I foolishly asserted that I wasn't sure I was going to have anything for a May round-up. And then I read some of my favorite books this year. Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo Let's start with the big names. These two books are included in the novels used in... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: April 2021

April showers bring May flowers, and this month's Round-up has no theme to speak of! We've got horror. We've got regency romance. We've got cli-fi. We've got epic fantasy that was not, in my opinion, YA. I was kind of all over the place, so enjoy! Devolution by Max Brooks If you liked World War... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: March 2021

Some of my favorite reads of the year so far, strongly leaning to romance, fantasy, and urban fantasy.

Obviously I really, really liked this book. It's probably... Continue Reading →

Erased: a delightful thriller

I've become a lot more selective about what anime I can commit to as I've gotten older. A lot of times I will watch one or two episodes of something that really seems like a good concept and just can't get into it. And at first, I thought Erased was going to be one of... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: February 2021

December and January were kind of a lot, so I ended up forgetting to add a few lovely stories to my January list. You'll see them here. Of course, I also read some great stuff in early February, some of which even came out in February (gasp!). Books are such a comfort. Depart, Depart by... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: November edition

Happy Thanksgiving. If you, like me, have a virtual Thanksgiving this year then I wish you the best of luck with your wifi connection. In the meantime, here are the books I've been reading in order to get through my Covid-generated quarantine and general sense of weirdness this month. My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady...
