I'm so bitter about this summer being almost over thing. I feel like I haven't really done much aside from work, especially this month. And my reading's been completely all over the place, so I guess I don't know what I'm doing in any aspect of my life. But like that's fine, because I had an incredible month of reading in retrospect. I book hopped like no other, but I've really loved everything I've read (except When We Were Animals, but I don't even want to talk about that).
WHAT I DID
1. // I participated in the #24in48 readathon. That was a pretty good time.
2. // I started my first pull list! I'm so strangely entranced by the bizarre comics ecosystem. I want to understand it and I want to conquer it. I'm not here to make friends, I'm here to win. But, if you were wondering, I have the following on my list: Bitch Planet, Invader Zim, Trees, Harrow County, and Pretty Deadly.
3. // I had my two year anniversary with the boyf. That was pretty sweet.
4. // I decided to stay in Minnesota for the time being. It was a really hard decision to make, but it makes sense financially. If you're from Minnesota, be my friend.
5. // Finally, I made a Facebook page for the ol' blog. I also sorted my reviews by cover by COLOR. You can delight in that here or click Reviews above. Oh, and I had my first giveaway AND my first guest post. That might just be exciting for me.
