Hello my darlings! We made it through 2018, and I'm proud of everyone who tried to meet their goals despite 2018 being four hundred years long and actively trying to stop us!

Today, belatedly, as is apparently the tradition, I'm going to be talking about how I did in my goals for last year, and what my reading goals are for next year!

Goals for 2018! )

Goals for 2019! )

And, to bring this back to books: here are some books that I'm excited to read in 2019! )

So that’s what I’m aiming for and that’s what I’m excited about. How about everyone else?
spindizzy: (Be happy!)

Well, we made it! I have FINALLY – F I N A L L Y – finished reviewing the books I read in 2018! Yay! I read some good things, I read some schlock, I apparently read huge quantities of stuff, which I wasn't expecting, but... 2018! Not a bad year for books! Next week should be my belated goals post (where has this year gone?!), and then after that normal service will resume with reviews of what I've been reading in 2019!

I think this is the first time that I've ever noticed how odd my reading tastes look when I lay them out properly. Feminist criticism from the 80s next to gory horror manga next to historical romance next to dystopian scifi next to... We contain multitudes is what I'm saying, I think.

What's with your subtitle?


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