The Lovely Words Tag

Some time ago now, Jaime at Books and Waffles tagged me in the Lovely Words tag. The intent is to feature books whose prose is exceptional. I normally focus on character-driven books when I write reviews, so this will be a nice change for me! Rules Pick three books with prose that stands out in… Continue reading The Lovely Words Tag

Friday Reads: November 2019 Wrap-Up

I ended up reading more books in November than I'd really been counting on, since this month was also NaNo. It does help that a lot of these books are shorter ones, though. The Forward Collection, for example, are more short story length (or novellas at best) and so they bump up the book count… Continue reading Friday Reads: November 2019 Wrap-Up

November 2019 Read-A-Thin Wrap-up

November readalongs always have the added challenge of needing to compete with NaNoWriMo for my time. So, while I decided to join this one, I didn't have high hopes. But it turns out I did a lot better with this than I had expected to! I switched out Night and Silence from my original reading plan for… Continue reading November 2019 Read-A-Thin Wrap-up

First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

This is a fun book! I didn't know when I initially decided to read it that it was a collection of three novellas about the same main character. But I'm really glad I picked it up. It's a much more enjoyable Sanderson book for me than the first one of his I read. (Steelheart. You… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

Discworld Read-A-Long 2019: November Recap

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! To those of you who aren't celebrating, I hope you still have an absolutely wonderful dinner and spend some quality time with family. (That's how I celebrate Thanksgiving, and is why I love it so much.) No Discworld books this month, but since I read Good Omens I almost feel… Continue reading Discworld Read-A-Long 2019: November Recap
