Week 1 (a little late): New genre/book goals or reading practices for 2019

Thanks to Grady Hendrix I kind of want to read more horror. Like maybe if I just come across some of the books in Paperbacks from Hell out in the wild I'll check them out. And then I have an actual set goal of reading more non-fiction and more queer books.

But the biggest change is that I'm gonna try to keep a paper journal to record my progress and thoughts on books.

Week 1- New books/genres. I think I may try for more nonfiction, (but combining with school makes me worried I'll get sick of it).
Reading practices: I'm gonna try to record my books being finished in my the day it happens, since the problem with the book diary (though I love it) is I don't bring it out every day, so it's like "when did I read this?"
But while I know some people recommend reviewing ASAP, I'd rather collect my feelings on the book first. Takes time.

Week 2- You basically just asked for YA books ๐Ÿ˜
The Beast Player - Nahoko Uehashi (it's translated too! READ IT!)
I think I can count the Seraphina Duology.
Tortall is basically Transition.txt
Little & Lion
idk The Giver? I have a soft spot for it.

I'll stop here.

BookToot Club

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!
