Is it really annual wrap up time already? Where did all the time go? This is only the second time I’ve done this annual post in this type of format – I can’t believe I’ve been with The StoryGraph for over a year now. I still love the site – its stats, its acknowledgement of audiobooks, the graphs, the content warnings! There’s a lot on the StoryGraph I haven’t used, but I love what I have used and that it’s still growing! My biggest use of the StoryGraph is for my wrap ups… and none more than the annual wrap […]

  Wow. This book swallows you up immediately.  The writing is beautiful, the language striking.  Each character unwinds smoothly.and is easily identifiable, even within the limited space of the novella.  I was on the fence about picking this up.  Too much hype about a book can turn me a little sour on it – I’ve been burned before – and I was worried it wasn’t really going tofu my reading tastes.  I was wrong!  I am so glad I decided to read This is How You Lose the Time War! This novella tells the story of two agents – known as […]
