Friday Reads: December 2019 Wrap-Up

So, there are still a handful of days left in December, but I'm doing my wrap-up post now anyway. Any books that I read between now and the 31st can get included in my 2019 Reading Wrap-Up. I gifted several graphic novels and picture books for Christmas this year, and wanted to read them before… Continue reading Friday Reads: December 2019 Wrap-Up

Triwizard Tournament Readathon Wrap-Up

Today is the Yule Ball! So that means it's time to catch up on my progress for the Triwizard Tournament Readathon. Triwizard Tournament Readathon Wrap-Up (The official site is here, and they're @triwizardathon on Twitter and use the hashtag #triwizardreadathon.) For task one, I read Prince Caspian for the dragon (Swedish Short Snout), and Pumpkinheads for the method of defeating… Continue reading Triwizard Tournament Readathon Wrap-Up

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

Friday Reads: October 2019 Wrap-Up

I ended up reading a lot of short fiction this month. (This means that my number of books read count is up while my total pages read is down.) And the really good short stories stand out quite noticeably among the average ones. It has solidified my opinion, though, that you can tell a lot… Continue reading Friday Reads: October 2019 Wrap-Up

November 2019 Read-A-Thin

Whaaaaat? A post on a Monday? Well, that's because the November 2019 Read-A-Thin prompts have been announced, and I'd already filled up the rest of my posting schedule so I had to squeeze in a new post just for the Read-A-Thin! Yay! More Read-A-Thin! For those of you new to Read-A-Thin, they used to be… Continue reading November 2019 Read-A-Thin

Friday Reads: September 2019 Wrap-Up

Happy October! Now that September is over, it's very definitely fall and the start of the holiday season. It's time for spiced lattes (chai lattes, yum) and pumpkin pie and roast turkey and quite possibly a cozy mystery binge. Or maybe a few horror stories instead (if I can get the nerve to read them).… Continue reading Friday Reads: September 2019 Wrap-Up

Friday Reads: August 2019 Wrap-Up

How is August (essentially) over already? Urgh. I am tired. But! This month saw a return to the Read-A-Thin reading challenge, so here's a quick update on how that went before we look at the month overall: 1. Read a Thin Book: Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries #3) by Martha Wells ~ read 8/17/19 ~ I… Continue reading Friday Reads: August 2019 Wrap-Up
