I guess I’m a Marvel stan now. Based on my last post about comics, I started reading some stuff on Hoopla. We have up to 8 takeouts per month, which is pretty awesome considering that I plan to mostly use it for comics. I checked out more than I could chew, and I only ended […]
I think this was the first big experiment in not using Goodreads and being pressured to finish one book at a time. I bought a bunch of books based on podcasts I listened to, human recommendations, and vague interests when I was 16 — so back in 2013. A lot of them ended up being […]
I’ve been trying to get into comics for a decade now. I’ve read the entirety of Scott Pilgrim and Persepolis. I generally find comics to be difficult to read, the left to right structure is hard for my eyes. People have recommended me comics, but the medium is hard to understand and I have no […]
I finished the Gallagher Girls series this past weekend. I read the books in a bit of a fever — #1 was a nostalgia trip of a really cool book that was extremely short. #2-4 were fun and sucked me into their worlds. #5-6 were… a slog. Let’s go through them 1 by 1. The […]

I’ve been half-heartedly reading the Vampire Academy series for ~2 years now. I like it… sort of. It’s a bit odd. The world is interesting, though, and I’m attracted to the best friendship between Rose & Lissa. I apparently already finished Frostbite, which I found out when I skimmed the entire book again. Oh well. […]
I’ve been rereading the Percy Jackson series as an easy, breezy adventure story. It’s not very good, but it’s paced quickly and the world is vaguely interesting. I’m going to finish the series to see where it ends up. I remember the series quite well from when I was a kid, but I’ve forgotten a […]
This is related to my dev stuff, but since I’m documenting all the books I’ve read, here’s my review on Twitter. I can’t figure out how to embed threads on here, but it’s a thread.
