Ever had to go on a book no-buy? I just had to put myself on one. After indulging in a few too many midnight Amazon penny book purchases and perusing Target’s 20% off section a few too many times, I’ll need a couple of months to catch up before I purchase another book. But rather than let those books gather dust, I decided to give myself a little bit of motivation to finish them a bit faster.
So, I introduce to you The Reading List. Over the next couple of months I’ll be reading through my stack of new books one at a time, and providing you with a thorough review once I’ve finished a book. I’ll shoot for two every month (roughly three weeks for one book, I do work quite a lot unfortunately). The reviews will include quick, spoiler free sections, and then sections with in depth views of the content.
If you’re interested in said reviews, here’s the list I have compiled so far! I’ve included oldies and goodies alike. Hopefully I’ll see you reading along with me in the future.
