Hello my darlings! It's been a while, but somehow my ability to hyperfocus suddenly started working in my favour and I spent this week doing nothing else but working at my day job and writing Eight Book Minimum reviews. I wrote 10,000 words across 57 reviews in like... Six days? Which means that my brain is somewhat mushy. Unfortunately, I've been working from most recent to least recent, which means that I've broken my usual policy of posting in chronological order; these are from about May-June, I think? ... I know it only bothers me, but I feel like the people have a right to know! I have enough reviews for another five posts queued up, I'll let you know when I'm back in order.

This was a lot of Hugo reading, with occasional breaks for comic books. Did anyone else read these during Hugo season? Did we yell a lot?

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
