Well, it’s the end of the month and this means that it’s time for me to do my usual thing of collecting a list of links to the ten best articles (about reading, writing, art etc…) that I’ve posted here over the past month.
As for this month’s articles, I’ll be the first to admit that the quality was probably a bit variable (this was mostly due to writer’s block and an unenthusiastic mood I was in when I was preparing some of this month’s articles) and this is probably why I haven’t included any honourable mentions in this month’s round-up article. Even so, at least some of this month’s articles still turned out fairly well and hopefully next month’s articles will be better.
As for reviews, I ended up reviewing fourteen books this month and – although I had a brief moment where I worried that I’d lose interest in reading again (Luckily, I was able to regain interest by reading a fun zombie novel that I’d set aside for occasions like this)- I’m still surprised that I ended up reviewing so many books 🙂
Anyway, my favourite books that I reviewed this month are probably: “The River King” by Alice Hoffman, “The Rosewater Redemption” by Tade Thompson, “We Sold Our Souls” by Grady Hendrix, “Sweet Dreams” by Tricia Sullivan, “The Unlimited Dream Company” by J. G. Ballard and “A Matter Of Blood” by Sarah Pinborough.
Anyway, here’s the list 🙂 Enjoy 🙂
