Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Green Book Covers

I've been doing these color themed cover posts every so often, and, you might not have noticed, but I've actually been doing them in order of the rainbow. I've already done red, orange, and yellow, so today we've reached green! Green was significantly harder than I thought it'd be. I mean, it's green! You'd think that wouldn't be hard to find. I also ran into the issue of such varying shades...

Bookish Musings: My 2018 Bookish Stats

This turned out to be a surprising reading year. Many of the books I was most anticipating ended up being mediocre, and many of my favorites were books I almost didn't read and thought wouldn't be quite right for me. Another strange thing is that I didn't do a lot of series binges. I also read far less vampire books than usual. So yeah, a bit of a strange reading year for me, but I still...
 

Update: Life and Books (12/30/18)

It's December 31st! One year is ending, and a new one is beginning.
