Reading Challenge: The Classics Club

The Classics Club Info: The Classics Club Date: February 20, 2020 – February 20, 2025 Goal: Read 50 classic books from a self-defined reading list within a 5 year time period.

Weekly reading, vol. 12

I mean, eventually I’ll get back on schedule with these. For now, here’s what I read for the week of February 14-20, 2016. Dreamspinner had a sale on three Kim Fielding books over the weekend, and I couldn’t resist picking them up. I immediately read Astounding! , a m/m romance between a scifi managzine editor and an alien. Alien!hero is stranded on Earth after coming back in the 1950s to observe humankind. All he wants Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 10

I’ve been trying to get this post up for five days now and it’s still giving me problems. Bleh. But at least I’ve managed to get SOMETHING up this week! So my reading for this week didn’t start off that great. I thought a short story would cleanse my palate between books, so I tried The Sacrificial Knight by Kestrel Drake , a fantasy m/m romance with dragons! And knights! And, like, way too much Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 9

Happy Sunday! School’s back in session but I’m having a hard time getting back into “work” mode. Especially since I’ve been sick all last week, and all I want to do is sleep and read books. Bleh. Continuing onward from last week’s Beings in Love binge, I finished up Little Wolf by R. Cooper on Sunday. More werewolves, yay! This time the couple is a heroic sheriff and an on-the-run, sassy werewolf with self-confidence issues Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 6

I snagged a month’s free subscription to Marvel Unlimited back in December, though I haven’t been making as much use of it as I have before. So far I’ve read two trade-equivalents, Deadpool vol. 5: Wedding of Deadpool by Brian Posehn and various guest writers/artists , and Ms. Marvel vol. 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson with art by Adrian Alphona and Jacob Wyatt . Deadpool’s wedding was a huge issue filled with unfortunately Read More …

Happy New Year, everyone! My vacation is nearly at an end, which means I’ll be back to work tomorrow. Luckily, I still have a few weeks until library school starts up again. I’ll only be taking two classes this semester (as opposed to three like in the fall), so hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with blogging this time around. And reading, of course! Anywho, here’s what I’ve been reading this week. Some of Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 4

Yay, I’m back! What a week I’ve had. First, I decided to change hosts last weekend1 and things, of course, went awry. I finally got it all fixed (hopefully) but next time I think I’m just gonna pay someone to do it for me because that was exhausting. Second, my work library opened and it was non-stop students and teachers! Yay! The first few days were a little bumpy, but by Wednesday I’d perfected my Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 3

I am currently pretty swamped with school stuff, but I still managed to sneak in a few books this week. Books read This was a breath of fresh air after the many somewhat mediocre reads from the last two weeks! I enjoyed learning more about Seregil’s past and about the society he comes from; also enjoyable was the little details of his and Alec’s relationship (finally! kissing! and MORE!) and all the emotional turmoil that Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 2

I’ve finished reorganizing my work library, which is great! I’m exhausted, but very excited for the students to finally get in there and mess around with the books. My new library computer also showed up on Friday which means I can finally add in the new students, update records, finish adding in new books, etc. Library opens in ONE WEEK! Goodness. Meanwhile, I’ve been vegging out on TV between doing school projects. I’ve started the Read More …

Hello, hello! It’s hot, the main power break for our house died two days ago and we’ve been dealing with that, I’m super busy with school and I haven’t got a ton of blogging mojo to spare. But I DO want to blog! About books! Books I read this week between doing homework, group meetins, and reorganizing the collection at work (more on that in a later post). Books read Tbh, not the BEST week Read More …
