What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, September 2020 edition

| September 16, 2020

Reading: I’m finally caught up on reading for reviews, which means I get to read Harrow the Ninth. All of my friends have been reading it and getting through it and making references I don’t understand, so I’m chugging through! Watching: We blew through the first half of Lucifer season 5, and we’ve wrapped up what […]

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

| August 26, 2020

Reading: I’m currently working through books to review, but I’m chomping at the bit to get into Harrow the Ninth. My husband finished reading it in two days, and several of our friends are part of the way through. So I’m diligently reading the books I agreed to review so I can clear my plate […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Early August 2020 Edition

| August 5, 2020

Reading: I’ve still got more comics to read, and a small lull in between books I’m scheduled to review, so now I have to decide which series to tackle first, because most of my remaining pile is the sort of series that need to be read all in one go! Watching: Mostly The Chilling Adventures […]

Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Mid-July 2020 Edition

| July 15, 2020

Reading: A few more comics, but also Gideon the Ninth, which is delightful. Many of my friends have already read it, so as I get through bits, I can talk about those with them. Watching: Juggling Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, though we also took a break to watch Hamilton at the beginning of the month. Listening […]

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. […]
