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 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.
