December Read Round-up

readingroundup

Perhaps a little late, but these posts were a staple on the blog before the hiatus, so I really want to get back into the habit of them. New year, new me, new blog schedule or something like that. Right?

So, in December, I honestly didn’t read a ton of published books—I read 3—but I read a lot of webcomics, so I’ll drop some links to stuff I’m currently following at the end of this post, too.

Review: Difficult Women

Difficult Women cover4 out of 5 stars. I picked this up on a whim, scrolling through short story collections available on Libby that I might be interested in reading. Earlier in 2018, I listened to Gay’s Not That Bad essay collection on audiobook (that review went up last Friday as part of my catch-up!), and I liked how she put that together. I’ve heard a lot about her, mostly because of her run on the comic World of Wakanda, and have been meaning to read more of her work, so this was my first jump into her fiction.

Review: Vicious

Cover of Vicious by V.E. Schwab4 out of 5 stars. The most recent in my V.E. Schwab reading obsession, Vicious is a dark comic book-esque story of ordinary people who, through extreme trauma, become ExtraOrdinary. Victor Vale is out for revenge. Eli Ever thinks he’s doing God’s work. And caught up between their single-minded pursuits to stab the hell out of each other are a cast of interesting and complex side characters.

Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge

2019 Reading Goals

I mentioned this during my 2019 goals post, but this year I’m deciding to use the Book Riot Read Harder challenge as a sort of springboard for ideas on diverse reading and books outside of my comfort zone. I did a lot of reading in 2018, way more than I have in a single year in years, but a lot of it was comfortable stuff, things I knew I’d like or genres I was familiar with. With 2019, I want to branch out and incorporate more fiction and nonfiction that includes different topics, or comes from different places, and this challenge is one way to help me do that.

Book Haul! Holiday Edition

bookhaul

This year’s holiday season was a huge book success for me: I gave books to basically everyone and I got a slew of books in return. I also got a mini-mountain of Switch games, which is great, but means we’re going to have some competing priorities. Good thing I have a week of vacation next week!

2019 Reading Goals

2019 Reading Goals

Each year, I set myself a pretty simple reading goal through the Goodreads Reading Challenge—just a number of books, no specifics, anything goes. In 2019, I want to be a bit more mindful with my reading choices, putting more focus on reading outside of my comfort zone and not just reading to increase a number. I’ll be tracking my progress in my Passion Planner, and I’ve decided to break my goals down into a few categories: books, comics, games (which I won’t be discussing here), and writing.
