I would love to discuss YA or Japanese lit with somebody! Though most things are fine honestly.

#AmReading Winter of the Witch
😍 I have been since it came out. It's really long.
It has people I've heard of, and for you, my friends:
🚨 They accept submissions 🚨 , and they __especially__ want 🚨 marginalized voices!🚨
Yes, they are a paying market.
#AmReading "So You Want To Talk About Race" by Ijeoma Oluo. About 40% through. Got it from the #library but I think I may need to buy it because it honestly seems like a great reference. It has the best explanation for checking your privilege I've ever seen. Like, I don't think I was fully examining it before. I do get it's a continuous process though. #SocialJustice #Nonfiction
Yes. #PodcastAddict keeps statistics. Is it weird I look at these and go "I need to listen to even _more_ #podcasts in 2019" instead of going "Gee maybe I should get a life"? And other than language lessons these are 100% podcasts. Tried #audiobooks last year. Zone out too much for them. #IRegretNothing
I get it for library reasoning (organization- Dewey Decimal) but having a big-ass display that says "New Nonfiction" and having two issues of #Saga there raises questions??????
D-Dog! 😍 #MsMarvel
I read #SquirrelGirl Trade 2 on January 2nd (yes, use your #Hobonichi / #BuJo to mark when you finish books, even if/especially if you want to do a full review later!) So good. My brother wanted me to stop so I'd play Smash Brothers, but not even for Smash! I'll either read the next #MsMarvel today/this weekend or more Squirrel Girl.
It has a similar feel in "why can't girls do this?" (prose is totally different though), and Tamora Pierce Blurbed the first book, so you know it's good. Even if I hated her books (never), I'd still love her taste.
While I reread the previous books while I wait for Winter of the Witch to come out, I want to reflect on something and hopefully help others.
When I was younger I didn't read series until they were done. What if the series went bad?
I understand where I come from. Problem is, there's a worse problem from not reading (yes even from the library) the books as they come out: the series could get canceled due to lack of demand. Now you'll never know how it ends.
Read in the moment. #PSA.

I like how the moment I came to the conclusion that Nick could be a handsome boy so Satan has Sabrina as queen (like speculated the last episode) your co-host immediately said it. It makes me feel like I figured out something passively watching.
Also I can't recall, have M. S and Nick met? I'm not saying she would recognize him, but I think she'd be most likely to.
I had an idea for #CaptainAmerica fanfiction (or a comic? Come on, hire me!) despite knowing nothing about him. The uh... original Captain America is a ghost, and haunts a new one, a jaded millennial or younger. (absolutely crucial they are jaded/cynical though)
There are generational differences, and it's clear that Original CA is senile.
New CA keeps trying various religions to exorcise him, but it doesn't work.
At no point does actual combat go on.

Also Harvey bored the shit out of me at the beginning, but I feel like he's finally coming into his own. My sweet babies. All the characters are the best character, except for Prudence, who is queen of the best characters.

A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.
Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.
Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.
Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.
This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
