Welcome to the 2018 reading blog, everyone!

I guess I’ll start by letting you all know how 2017 went for me.

Pretty well! I managed to just scrape by and make my goal for the year! Let’s take a look at what’s happened recently, then we’ll look at the year and see what’s coming up in 2018.

Here’s the link to my star rating breakdown if anyone needs a refresher. It’s also up in the header under the Blog tab 🙂

  • What I’m currently reading (in order of Date Started)
    1. Odd Apocalypse (Odd Thomas, #5) by Dean Koontz- Still plugging away on this one. I haven’t done a lot of reading lately, but this is still on the list of things to finish this month.
    2. Batman, Volume 1: The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder- See above. Still working on it, slowly but surely.
  • Books I’ve Finished

It’s always a surprise when I actually make these goals. I always feel like it’s a down to the wire kind of experience. Let’s see what I’ve done!

T’was The Day Before Christmas…

…and all through the blog, everything had been updated. Now, let’s have some eggnog!

That’s right, I’ve spent my Christmas Eve updating the website! You might not notice much difference if the blog is all you’re interested in:  a color change, some font updates, and the like. The biggest change you might notice is that the Book Review Stars Explained! page has been moved in the header. It’s now underneath the Blog menu.

The biggest change has been made to the Home page of the site. I now have a featured page (showing where you can buy “Doubt The Stars”, which is out in paperback, by the way!) and a neat little About section. It looks pretty cool if you wanna check it out 🙂

I know I’ve been slacking on the blogging front this month. I’m going to try to catch up on that as much as I can in the next week or so. In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

In my defense I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts and stuff…which I guess isn’t really much of a defense at all. Oh well, here we go!

Rumors Of My Distress Might Not Be As Exaggerated As I Would Like…

So, if anyone actually pays attention to when this blog is updated (irregular as it may be), you may have noticed that I’ve missed a couple of blog posts. Sorry about that. See, there was this guy named Harvey. He came to visit my little corner of the world, and totally over-stayed his welcome.
