Book Reviews: Dec-Feb and beyond!

A fun thing that’s been happening recently is that I’ve been given the opportunity to review more books, for Hyperallergic and other places! This is great for several reasons, mostly that I love books and love to read and cannot afford books for the most part, especially nice ones. So it’s cool that people send them to me now.

I have grappled with whether or not to post every book review individually here, and have decided the more efficient thing to do is post monthly wrap-ups that cover all my book reviews, and not just post the ones that I think are particularly outstanding. We’ll see how that goes.

For starters, here are my book reviews for the last three months:

December 2018:
