Can you believe September’s tomorrow? Summer’s basically over. I can’t believe we’re already in our last three months of the year.

Did you know this is not the only place I review books? I contribute reviews for the Independent Book Review. So far, there’s one review of mine posted about Eric Butler’s The Pope Lick Creek Massacre. If you’re into horror, I highly recommend it.

As you look into this post’s book haul, I indulged myself in more of John Allison’s Giant Days. Plus, I found a special gem: The Umbrella Academy. I’ve been listening to My Chemical Romance since high school (2003), and I had no idea lead singer Gerard Way wrote comics (mind blown). Way’s series is freaking fantastic. I only decided to read Umbrella Academy after seeing the season two trailer on Netflix.

Anywho, here’s my book haul of July & August 2020. And yes, there’s more bigfoot erotica. They were…not so good (lol). If you ever thought of publishing your own romance (or erotica) short stories on Amazon, I do recommend Hope Ford’s The Short Story Romance Handbook. It’s a short guide, but valuable.
