What I {Really, Truly} Read in 2017 + Plans for 2018

Once again, I’m slightly irked at people who post pictures of stacks of books they plan to read along with lengthy literary lists. Life just isn’t like that. I take my books one at a time, as I’m in the mood, circling back to old favorites, and keeping my “plan to read” list very short. […]
