[Books] you're just as terrified as I am

Okay, so it's been nearly three months since I blogged. I've finished quite a few books since then, and I was thinking of chopping it all up into separate blogs but I've sort of given up on the idea because I'm just too busy to do that. I'd rather just get everything out of the way, and then resume "normal" blogging operations.

I really should post a [Life] update as well, but please don't hold your breath. :))) I know I won't. I'll try to sneak one in during a break. I've got huge ones on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Anyway, here's what I've read in the past three months! It's just a list, but I figure we may as well just rip the bandage off.

Yes? Yes.
