I haven’t published as much as I would have liked to in the last few months but I’m still plugging away at it. I have a few articles for Book Riot in draft form right now and hope to get them out by the end of the month.
But until then, here’s what I’ve been up to since my last Book Riot recap in January.
First up is an article in which I gave Dan and Roseanne Conner book recommendations. As I mention in that article, “Roseanne” Is my all-time favorite sitcom and I can not explain to you how dismayed I am to learn that they’re rebooting it. Not only do I just not want whatever cheesiness that is sure to bring to the world, but Roseanne is now an outspoken Trump supporter. I’m not particularly interested in her take on the “working man’s life.”
Then I recommend a book for every flavor of Ben & Jerry’s I’ve ever eaten. Spoiler: I’ve eaten a lot of Ben & Jerry’s.
I also made a terrible pun about coffee to title my article about coffee books.
My boyfriend and I spent the end of last year and first few weeks of this year in Rome and so I wrote a Literary Tourism post about it.
Wanna know what I’d give away if I became a trillionaire and created a bookish lottery? You’ll be glad to know that no animals will be harmed in the making of my bookish lottery.
I offered some advice for the socially awkward among us who want to make more bookish friends in real life.
There’s one more article I wrote that I’m not linking to here because I’m not happy with it. I was trying to make a point about the attempts MFA program directors have made to diversify their students and whether those attempts have affected what’s being published by authors coming out of those MFA programs. Apparently I did a poor job of making that point because a whole lot of people thought my conclusion was that the lack of diversity in publishing is the fault of those MFA directors. That’s actually the opposite of what I was trying to say, but, like I said, I clearly did a hack job on it. Twitter was upset, I was embarrassed, it was not good for anyone and so I’m not linking to it here.
As always, if you have an idea for an article that you want to see written, just drop it here and I’ll see what I can do about it.
