This month I read six books, one of which was a graphic novel and a reread. The rest were split between fantasy and nonfiction. No mind-blowing books this month, unfortunately. Most of them were uniformly good but not 5 star material, which makes it hard to order them from worst to best.

Whoops, that makes about three months of no posts except for these wrap ups! Oh well, it was a hard semester. Zoom school is exhausting and I bit off one more class than I could comfortably chew.
