Last year I was ambitious and wrote out all the books I read. This year I’m just going to talk about my top picks and biggest disappointments.
Top 10 Books/Series
10. Blister by Jeff Strand
Surprisingly much more insightful than what it’s billed to be.
9. Two Hearts by Peter S. Beagle
You can read this for free through the link. It’s honestly the best I could hope for from a sequel to such an epic work. It continues the themes without being trite and the resolution is beautiful if bittersweet.

There were a lot of sales these past two weeks, and I’ve started getting emails from Goodreads for deals. I also conveniently just received Elric today in the mail. I’ve been looking for this book forever. It’s either ridiculously expensive or nonexistent, so I was happy to get it for less than $10.

When reading something becomes a chore and it’s not a reference, it’s time to put it to the side. The artwork is gorgeous, but I really don’t like the main character, so I don’t really care about her journey and mission. This is another one where you’d think I would; I mean she’s trying to piece together her dead mother’s life, but I was more interested in the little fox and the two-tailed cat.
