To try and combat the never ending list I have decided to dedicate at least one day a week to reminding myself what books are on that list by sharing with you guys.
This past week was super crazy for me. There was so much going on this past week that I am amazed that I got through so many books. I finished David Burgess’ Teach Like a Pirate, Scott Reintgen’s Nyxia Unleashed (favorite this year), and Alan Gratz’ Refugee this week.
With that being said, I did not read any short stories but did manage to read an opinion piece by Roxane Gay. Considering I finished up with my summer school students and attended the San Diego Comic-Con, I think this weeks reading was very successful. In my next post I will be updating my list with more reads from my TBR pile.
