2018: My Year In Books

2018: My Year In Books

Posted January 1, 2019 in Bookish Things // 9 Comments

Annual round up time!  I like this time of year because it’s like this amazing gallery of all the different worlds I’ve visited and the people I’ve meant.  Okay, so granted, all these people and places are fictional, but books are still the sort of thing that make me happy, so taking a brief revisit is always fun. As I predicted last year, 2018 was so much better than 2017 in regards to my personal life, travel, reading, everything!  I’m so grateful for this upturn, and I’m sure 2019 will bring whole new slew of joy and surprises.  I started my […]

Professor Harl is clearly passionate about his subject, and has a lot of knowledge about Scandinavian history.  Anyone interested in the Vikings and that period of history could learn a lot about it from Professor Harl, but this isn’t the type of lecture series you put on in your car and absorb as you navigate traffic.  For this one, if you really want to take in the important stuff, you need to sit down with a pen and notebook and take notes. He spends […]

July is gone, and I’m posting this today so I can focus on Harry Potter’s birthday tomorrow.  I swear, I’m not a Harry Potter nerd. LIES! #Ravenclaw4Life I’ve had mixed feelings about this month’s books.  There’ve been a couple of DNFs, but on the other hand there were books that I really loved!  It was a high/low month and nothing inbetween. THE JULY HAUL I had a good run at Barnes & Noble earlier in the month, and I’m beginning to clear out my audible credits as well. JULY READS WRITING LIFE In a touch of insanity, I decided to […]
