I’m not entirely sure HOW I read so many books in November, especially considering it was so close to finals. I think I just squeezed in as many pages as I could on my commute(s)? It probably also helped that the majority of the books I DID read had very small page counts.
So it was at this point of the year where I started reading a TON of romance books. This happened for several reasons: 1. I can read them super quickly, and could thus squeeze in a book or two between work and school, 2. Scribd kept recommending me a crapload of them after my romance
Continuing to play review catch up! Today I have four reviews: two fantasy books with wolves and GLBTQ elements, a m/m fantasy romance with a dragon!, and an epic scifi with aliens and uncomfortable threesomes.
I’ve finished my first semester of library school! Which means I can get back to posting and hanging out on Twitter and reading as many books as I can cram onto my Kindle. First, though, I want to try and catch up on some reviews before the end of the year. Here’s what I didn’t
Loki: Agent of Asgard, Vol. 1: Trust Me – Al Ewing A Loki who wants redemption and who doesn’t look like the bottom of an old shoe? Awesome! On the other hand, very much read like a continuation of about three other series (because it is), and at least two issues crossed over with another

Unlike the first book, this one is set (mostly) all in one place, during one time period, with negligible character growth and no redemption arc/quest. It
Desperately trying to play catch-up, as always! Here’s three tiny reviews of books I’ve read several months ago. There Will Be Phlogston – Alexis Hall I hated Byron Kae’s sister in previous books because she made her sibling’s life very unhappy, but it turns out she’s more complex than just “horrible bully.” She wants to
Lots of stuff from City of Pearl got carried over into this book, both thematically and character developmentally. For example, humans are still not special! And now they’ve invited an alien species to, like…visit? And that species looks like spiders and they’re way overpopulated and basically like the opposite of the Wess’har[1. who, btw, apparently
The Philosopher Kings gets off to a bad start, tbh. The Just City has separated into multiple cities, all with differing ideas about what Plato Really Meant, Aristotle-the-fly disappeared, Pallas Athene never came back, and worst of all Simmea, my favorite character from The Just City, dies. She’s murdered during an art raid. She’s dead!
