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.

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 […]

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 […]

2016: In Reading

At the end of 2015, I lost eight years worth of BL manga files. It was like a freak accident. One minute they were there and the next, gone. I was able to re-download all of my Juné and Sublime titles and my eBookJapan titles weren’t affected, of course, but all of my indie comics and […]

2016: In Music and Video

Don’t mistake this for a “Best of.” This is pretty much the extent of my audio and video intake for the year. On the other hand, with the exception of one, they were all highlights of this year for me. So. “Hamilton.” Is Amazing. Even if it’s not “your thing”, you can’t deny its brilliance. And if […]

Jay Northcote: Like a Lover

This is the second book in Jay Northcote’s Housemates series, but the third one that I read. They stand alone well, so it was fine. This one is about Rupert and Josh who meet when they were both stood up. They chat a bit and get to flirting around Josh’s tattoos and Josh asks Rupert […]
