This month I’m tackling The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James.
I love Henry James’ short story The Turn of the Screw, but I’ve never read any of James’ full length novels. Crossing my fingers that it’s double the awesome! (Yes, I can be corny)
ARCs, ARCs, and more ARCs
Due to poor planning I’m buried in ARCs for the next couple of months. After I get through this backlog of NetGalley reviews, I’m going to focus in on just the books I really feel compelled to write about. I don’t want to burnout like I did in the summer. I love writing, and I don’t want it to become a chore.
I guess when I started reading more, double the amount from last year, I felt the need to review AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
REVIEW EVERYTHING! AHHHH!
Need to work on that…
Oh! Also, I didn’t forget about the movie rundown, it was just a terrible idea to start it in the wasteland of August. September looks more promising with IT, Mother!, and Battle of the Sexes.
