A Year of Books

As 2015 draws to a close, it comes time to reflect on what I've accomplished this year and plan how I will develop myself as a writer in the next one. Last year at this time, I wrote that I would be refraining from writing book reviews until I was more certain that my criticisms constituted a significant contribution to literature.

That time has come. In the coming weeks, expect write ups of my thoughts on the following works:
