You will be disappointed to know that for this month I only read one book.
I mostly read short stories, poems, and graphic novels. None of which were bad but I wouldn’t call them great either with the exception of “Monstro” by Junot Diaz. That story was an amazing science fiction story about the relationship between Haiti and Dominican Republic.
I’m honestly just trying to power through the next couple of weeks this semester and hope I do well in my final exams and essays. I’m also procratinating by watching a lot of television, namely Turkish dramas and Netflix original series (like Stranger Things, Voltron, and The Confession Tapes).
Thanksgiving didn’t help much except for giving me time to finish and start new shows to watch. What I need is real room to read without feeling guilty about not reading for class. Hopefully, that will come soon in about 2 weeks when the semester officially ends. In the meantime, please bear with me.
