June 2018 With another semester coming to an end, I found some time on my hands. I wasn’t able to read as much as I’m used to—usually eight to ten books a month—but I also got a lot of reading, planning, and rewriting done. I’m very happy with where I’m at right now—though I wish … Continue reading End of June Review
May 2018 Gotta lotta reading done. Gotta lotta writing done. Gotta lotta Chewy done. Good month. Books Read First this month was a long time wait…A Wild Sheep Chase. It is technically Murakami’s third book, and the one when he felt he really grew into being an author by discovering the story as he went … Continue reading End of May
April 2018 Been busy this month, as usual, but actually complete a lot more than I expected. Books Read Again, I tried something light, so I read They Both Die at the End. Ah…yeah, it’s YA, and it fits all the horrible requirements that are YA. There is heavy repetition, bloating the book out to … Continue reading April–End of Month Wrap Up!
My Top Three Five Living Authors I’ve made this list before and in that post I stated that this was an ice-breaker a particular professor used to not only have us introduce ourselves but also to subtly jab at any of us English majors who quite possibly dealt to long in old texts and authors … Continue reading My Top Three Five Living Authors (Redux)
March 2018 The new semester started and everything’s going full swing again, yet still I’ve gotten some things done that I’m proud of finding the time to do. Books Read First up, I read this very strange ‘On Method Acting,’ inspired by my earlier read of ‘Moonwalking with Einstein.’ I wanted to up my game … Continue reading End of March
February 2018 Obviously, as you can see, I’ve had another big month when it comes to reading. With the new semester coming up, I wanted to clear off as much of my Kindle TBR list as possible. Seeing as it is break time, it shouldn’t be surprising, but even I am astounded by how much … Continue reading End of Feb.
A Review of Common Mistakes While Writing My one friend decided to write his own book, too, so I said, “Hey, let me see what you got!” And so he did, and immediately, the finer grammarian hairs on my neck stood up. Though I don’t take such things as seriously as other, I do find … Continue reading Two Common Writing Mistakes
A Look Back at My Reading List (2017 Part 8: Non Fiction) Here is my final breakdown of my reading list from last year. It is non fiction. I’ve been doing more reading in this area and figured it deserved its own place in my list. I’ve grown into more economic based books but some … Continue reading A Look Back Part 8: Non Fiction
A Look Back at My Reading List (2017 Part 7: Book Club Reads) I added this category this year as I joined a book club. I hope to continue this next year, but so far it looks like my little club is dying. Nonetheless, I joined in March and went through until November when the … Continue reading A Look Back Part 7: Book Club Reads
A Look Back at My Reading List (2017 Part 6: Graphic Novels) I do usually love this category. Art and words—awesome. But this year, I didn’t get much…but this is probably why my page count is up compared to books read. I’ve read…4! That’s it. To quote my president, Sad. Here they are: The … Continue reading A Look Back Part Six: Graphic Novels
