November Reads 2017

While November wasn’t an impressive reading month in terms of number of books, it was a good reading month for quality of books (or at least, I read 3 books I loved, so you can read my reviews and guess which ones), so I’m still happy with it. As long as I manage to read […]

October Reads 2017 Part Two

I shared round one of my October reads a couple weeks ago, but now I’m back with the remaining ones. October was definitely one of my better reading months–it looks like the total was 11 books, and none of them were graphic novels. I haven’t managed to finish a book so far in November, but […]

September Reads 2017 Part One

Well September has not been as crazy of a reading month as I hoped, but I’d say it’s been quality over quantity because I have read some excellent books so far this month! My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella is cute partly romantic comedy about an English country girl, Katie Brenner, who moves […]

August Reads 2017 Part Two

While the second half of August wasn’t nearly as intense reading-wise as the first half (check out part one of my roundup here), I’m still happy with my reading overall! I mean, this is a total of 17 books, which is likely my highest of the year. I am pretty annoyed at myself for how […]

August Reads 2017 Part One

Well, I think it’s safe to say after my June/July reading slump/you know, defending my PhD thesis and moving to California to do fieldwork, I finally got bit by the reading bug again. I actually have to blame readathon vlogs, which I have been loving on YouTube and find super motivating to watch. They definitely […]

June and July Reads 2017

Well, that’s been a hectic few months. First, I traveled for a lot of June, then at the end of the month defended my PhD, then in July I headed to California for 6 weeks for work (still here) and I just feel like reading (and blogging, as you can tell by the fact that […]

May Reads 2017 Part One

Like April, this has been a good reading month so far–thanks again to some cheating with graphic novels–so I decided to split up my monthly recaps into two to keep them to a decent size. That said, I am traveling next week which may mean I don’t finish many more books. But here’s what I’ve […]

April Reads 2017 Part Two

We’re back! After my April Reads wrap-up got a bit ridiculous at 8 books–because even though these are supposed to be mini reviews I always end up rambling for a couple paragraphs–I decided to split it in two. So here we are with all the books I read in the second half of April. After […]

April Reads 2017 Part One

This has been a good reading month so far, and I’d like to credit two things in particular. 1) I somehow managed to get my thesis to my committee very early in the month, so the stress/workload is slightly relieved (for now) 2) I kinda want to “beat” Suzi after her crazy 13 book recap […]
