It's hard to find the time to review every book I read, and it's even harder to find the motivation when a book isn't spectacular or noteworthy or made me think or made me hate it. So, this mini-review roundup was born. (February 2018)
I'm cheating a little bit, because Top Ten Tuesday used this topic ages ago. But I already wrote about this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (My 2018 Reading Goals) and I haven't written about books that I really, truly love in a while, so here we are!
It's been really hard for me to watch the news lately. I mean, all year, yes, but in the last month in particular. I've been avoiding Facebook, because even the posts from like-minded women have filled me with dread and heartache. I'm talking about all. these. men.
I get a mild feeling of panic every time someone asks me to recommend books to them. I want to just direct them here, to the safe space where all of my thoughts and feelings are already laid out, where they can read my thoughts on the books before they pick them up.
