Shelved: March 2018

Back to M/M this month. But not only M/M. I’ve restarted a read-with for Oda Eiichiro’s One Piece with my friend, Sam. When we first decided to do it was probably two or three years ago at this point. Maybe more. He’s Captain Procrastination and then I found myself too busy. Bad timing all the […]

Shelved: February 2018

Although I committed to reading books by and about Black people and their concerns for February, that wasn’t what I set out to do. It just kind of stacked up that way. It began with the last two books I read: Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s pseudo-memoir, Mo’ Meta Blues and Kwanza Osajyefo and Jamal Igle’s graphic novel, Black. […]

Roxane Gay--An Untamed State

Roxane Gay: An Untamed State

Roxane Gay’s An Untamed State was surprising. I enjoyed the story and the writing. The brutality was endless, but written in a way that put just enough distance between the reader and the story, so that they could get through it without breaking. Or breaking completely. Miri and Michael came from different worlds, and I […]

Shelved: January 2018

I didn’t have much of a plan for reading when the year started, but now I think I’m going to attempt to do themed months. January, by default, was M/M. For the latter half of 2017, I was mostly looking forward to the second book in Santino Hassell’s Barons series, Down by Contact, which was […]

Happy 2018!

I have not posted on this blog since the beginning of May. Most of my activities, what little there was in the way of reviews and such, were shared on Instagram (new books), Tumblr (running commentaries), and GoodReads (actual reviews). According to GoodReads, I read 196 books in 2017. This is the first time I’ve […]

Shelved: April 2017

The last monthly shelved post was made back in March 2016. I can’t seem to stick to a routine, but that’s fine, I suppose. Life is kind of hectic right now, so I’m surprised I’ve got this much done. Can’t say that I’ll be able to do it next month, but, again, it’s not the […]

TT Kove--More Than Words Book 1

Storytelling: TT Kove

TT Kove’s writing style is very simple–though not in the same way that I said of Aimee Nicole Walker–and it took a bit for me to get used to. However, once I did, I realized that its simplicity allows for the direct yet soft-spoken tone of her words to paint these quietly complex pictures of […]

Garrett Leigh--Misfits

Storytelling: Garrett Leigh

After working out what it was I liked about Nicola Haken, I realized that it was pretty  much the same for Garrett Leigh. Because she’s very good at guiding you along the course of things. The how of things. How these people are ruined and how they put themselves back together and maybe fall apart […]

Nicola Haken-Broken

Storytelling: Nicola Haken

Counting Daisies, The Making of Matt, and, my favorite, Broken, are a few of the titles I’ve read by Nicola Haken. She’s good for exposing both sides of a story, going into the emotions and the suffering and she’s really good at conveying how broken some people are and how they don’t always get to […]
