I picked this up for graphic novel bookclub. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
I loved the illustrations, especially how dark they were during the majority of the book. There are a lot of themes running through it, and I really enjoyed that, knowing that life is complicated, and the book ran through all the complications.
My only complaint is that I haven’t gotten my hands on the next book yet. This one kind of left me at a cliffhanger.
Because of school work, and such, I prewrite my blog posts in an attempt to get something published daily. School doesn’t start for another week or so, so I’m writing what I can now, to attempt to fill the days. I think that I can get the end of January done before school starts. I have already started February, since, as usual, February is a themed month.
I’m writing up reviews of books that haven’t been posted yet and getting them scheduled, and I have a few articles that I want to read and comment on. Also, I have thoughts running through my head and I’ll be writing those down, bit by bit. I think it’s doable.
I received this as a free book. It was a cute story about colors.
I didn’t give it a high rating because, while I understood that the author was kidding about the world being grey before the story’s main plot happened, he mentioned that he could price it because of photographs. I know, I’m being picky here, but unless the adult reading the story to the child explains the joke, the child might believe it.
I recommend it as a book for an adult to read and explain with the child.
What a way to end the year! I picked this up as a freebie. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would.
I would almost throw this in a horror genre, since we know exactly the horrible things that will happen and we’re mentally trying to stop them as the story progresses. The main character is having a bad day that progressively gets worse and we all know how that goes.
I recommend this to a person with a strong stomach and a sense of humor.
Now that 2021 is behind us, it’s time to set my goals.
I plan on hitting the gym more often. I need to get it on the calendar. If I could afford a trainer, I would so that I could be accountable to getting somewhere on time in the mornings since I’d be meeting someone. I can’t afford it, so I have to figure out a different plan.
I have lists set up for daily and weekly routines. I plan on checking them daily, and seeing how far I can get.
I have set my goal for the annual reading challenge at 125 books since I have been receiving free kids books a lot. I read 112 in 2021, so adding a few more won’t hurt.
I hope to finish up my degree this year. I have 2 required classes and 3 electives to finish up between summer and fall semesters. I hope I can get everything I need.
I hope to get better sleep patterns established next year. Regular bedtimes and wake up times need to be set.
Meal planning was started and ended in 2021, so we will pick that up again for this year. It’s been better when school has been out, since everyone isn’t doing as much as they do when school is in session.
It’s a lot to look at all at once, but it isn’t so bad when you realize it covers so many different parts of my life. Small chunks at a time. Here’s to 2022!
I picked this up for school. It was a wonderful book, and the author told his story with all of the tools he has. His sexuality, race, and ability to use technology all come through in this poem that he says he can’t write.
I really enjoyed it, but I forgot to mark it as read when I actually finished it, so I am just now getting to the review.
I would recommend it to anyone who likes poetry, even a little. It was worth reading.
