My 2022 To-Be-Read List

This sucker is going to be short because I’m too defiant to even listen to myself. I’ve set many goals like this before and I never follow through, so jokes on me for even posting this. But, no matter, all of these are at least on the list to be read in the near future. …

2021 Book Roundup: Part 1

This year marked the first time in history I’ve ever met my Goodreads Challenge goal! At the beginning of the year I set myself the softy (though lofty – I didn’t intend to rhyme) goal of 25 books. And I met it!
