Happy New Year! I rounded out my reading some excellent new favorites, bringing my reading total to 80 books. It’s why I skipped my once-annual Twelve Days of Reading challenge. That, and I wanted to spend some quality time with friends and family.
I read 81 books this year, mostly thanks to an aggressive ARC schedule and audiobooks. The list here are 18 books which I read this year that I loved, but weren’t necessarily published in 2018. Some are from 2016, one comes out in January 2019, and one collection of manga had been published back in 1972.
One day, I will publish these on the last day of the month, but it is not this month. And it won’t be next month either (because New Year’s Eve). But I discovered a few new favorites and the foray into audiobooks continues.
October was quite a month. Between my friend’s wedding in Italy, Pitch Wars announcements, querying, and a newfound appreciation of audiobooks, I squeezed in reading 8 books.
September was a month of sleep and rest and recovery from frantically submitting to Pitch Wars. I read a few books and got a library card, so we’ll see how much book consumption changes based on that.
Year 2 of #QBFFsRead and I read a queer book every week of July. I also caught up on some other reading and I don’t understand where July went.
