Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: April 2022

diversity inclusivity challenge april 2022

This year I'm embarking on a personal Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge. This involves trying to ensure at least half of all the books I read each month feature either diversity or an inclusive, accepting world. I've defined diversity as involving books focused on one group (non-white because too many books have already featured enough white … Continue reading Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: April 2022

Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022

diversity inclusivity challenge feb 2022

This was supposed to post last night, but I forgot February only has 28 days. My son accidentally put the date 2-29-28 on one of his school assignments yesterday, so we looked up the calendar and saw 2028 does indeed have February 29th! Thanks to that, I forgot 2022 does not have a February 29. … Continue reading Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022

Indie Books Challenge: December 2021

I'm sorry to say, but this is the last Indie Books Challenge post. I've decided to take up a new challenge next year, so this is the end of my focus on indie reads. In a little over a week, next Monday, I'll be posting about my 2022 challenge. For my personal Indie Books Challenge, … Continue reading Indie Books Challenge: December 2021

My Favorite Science Fiction & Fantasy Read of 2021

favorite science fiction fantasy read of 2021

Most of what I read this year was SFF, so it's hard to narrow down! I like to think that, in previous years, I enjoyed a nice balance of fantasy, mystery, and women's fiction with some general fiction and science fiction thrown in, but I think this year (with the ongoing pandemic and now approaching … Continue reading My Favorite Science Fiction & Fantasy Read of 2021

My Favorite Mystery & Thriller Read of 2021

favorite mystery thriller read of 2021

As much as I like to think I enjoy mysteries and thrillers, I think the fact that I've only reviewed 11 all year (I read 12, but won't get around to reviewing it until January) kind of says something. Overall, I found myself underwhelmed by most of them and sorely disappointed in some, so it … Continue reading My Favorite Mystery & Thriller Read of 2021

My Favorite Women’s Fiction and Romance Read of 2021

favorite women's fiction romance read 2021

While I do tend to prefer women's fiction novels with as little romance as possible, I've also come to appreciate some romance, as long as I choose them wisely. They were also a nice break between thick, heavy fantasy novels. Since the two blend together far too much for my liking to the point where … Continue reading My Favorite Women’s Fiction and Romance Read of 2021

About a day later than usual, but I'm just glad my fingers recovered from whatever my COVID shot did to them to get this up. More posts and hopefully some Sisters of String and Glass by the end of the week! For my personal Indie Books Challenge, I've decided to try to have at least … Continue reading Indie Books Challenge: November 2021

Indie Books Challenge: October 2021

indie books challenge october 2021

For my personal Indie Books Challenge, I've decided to try to have at least half of all the books I read in a month be by an indie author or published by an indie publishing house, which I'm broadly defining as not published by one of the Big 5 because doing otherwise would break my … Continue reading Indie Books Challenge: October 2021
