Other Things I Wrote

I updated my Books, Comics & Zines I Read in 2021 for the last few months. I’m still on 50/52 books for my reading challenge and I might let myself fail. I could cram in a couple of comics but the ones I have, I don’t want to read just yet. I’m also enjoying my current book too much to switch to something shorter. I read a lot of long books this year so I won’t feel bad if I fail.

My Breath of the Wild tumblr is now complete and taking a break. However, I have already started again in Master Mode so will start sharing things again soon.

My end of year recap will be up tomorrow!
