Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Late June Edition

| June 24, 2020

Reading: I’m working my way through my stacks of graphic novels. In addition to things I plan to review here, I’m also progressing through The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, and Doctor Aphra. A lot of these graphic novels have been stacked up for a long time, and it’s a good feeling to watch that stack shrink! Watching: […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Early June 2020

| June 3, 2020

Reading: Books to review, though I will run out of those I’ve promised to review soon, and then I get to start pulling all those books from my TBR pile, some of which may have been there for … a while. Watching: We watched “Knives Out” recently, which was a fun movie. And we’ve been […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, May 2020

| May 13, 2020

Reading: Books to review, for the most part, plus a bunch of history articles and books for my Unfixed Timelines II essays. Watching: We recently watched the first episode of the new Penny Dreadful run, and while it’s very unlike the original Penny Dreadful series, I’m really enjoying it for the history and the visuals. At one point […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Mid to Late April edition

| April 22, 2020

Look, I don’t know where April went either, but it’s vanishing far more quickly than March did. Reading: A stack of books to review, when I’m not re-reading my own writing. Watching: We finished out season 2 of Altered Carbon (and enjoyed it, even though it was different from the first season) and have returned to […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Late March and Early April 2020

| April 1, 2020

Reading: I just finished The Sparrow in Hiding by J. Kathleen Cheney (review to come soon), and the next in my “stack” is The Witches of St. Petersburg by Imogen Edwards-Jones, so I’m just all about the fantastical Russian stories right now! Watching: We’re surprisingly not watching a whole bunch right now, largely driven by the fact […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Mid-March 2020

| March 11, 2020

Reading: I’ve just finished editing a short story collection, which were all new stories to me, and I’m reading books to review. (And always looking for more editing work and review books!) Watching: The second season of Altered Carbon dropped at the end of February, so we’re working our way through that, and generally enjoying it. […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To: Late February 2020 Edition

| February 19, 2020

Reading: Books to review and a whole lot of flash fiction recently. Plus I’m editing Kensei 3 and then a short story collection! Watching: Mostly Riverdale. Pretty much only Riverdale and K-pop videos. Listening To: New albums from Pentagon (The Black Hall), Monsta X (All About Luv), and Moonbyul (of Mamamoo) (Dark Side of the Moon). […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Late January 2020

| January 29, 2020

Reading: A book to review, and lots of flash fiction from a contest I’m participating in. Watching: Not much recently. Looking forward to Altered Carbon season 2 in February, though! Listening To: The usual slate of k-pop for fun and workouts, and ambient music for editing and writing. My favorite k-pop boy band, Monsta X, will […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Early January 2020

| January 8, 2020

Reading: Working my way through Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdez, which I started reading from the library and then had to return. Now I have it on my Kindle. Watching: Aside from seeing Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker on Christmas Day and finally watching Jupiter Ascending right at the end of 2019 (and rewatching […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To: December 2019 Edition

| December 18, 2019

Reading: A book to review, and a couple of comics here and there. I finally read the first trade paperback of Doctor Aphra and promptly requested MOAR! Aside from that, though I haven’t read much lately. I had to return the library copy of Chilling Effect, so I bought that for my Kindle (since I was […]
