Part of the reason I started this blog was to start writing more. Hand in hand with that is reading more, and to encourage both habits I’m going to try to review every book I read (or most at least!). I’ll use this page as both a tracker for books I want to read as well as for the reviews themselves. Suggestions for what to read next are always welcome!
