Monthly Review – October 2018

Goodness October has been a busy month and I’m sort of glad for it. I have gotten back into the short story reading kick thanks to Amazon’s Dark Corners Collection and found a new love for Joyce Carol Oates, who I think will easily become one of my favorite writers. I also began my graduate classes this past Monday and I am so unbelievably excited and nervous! I spent last weekend trying to work ahead in some of my classes, so hopefully I can juggle my work, school, and personal life. It’s been three years since I’ve been in school so I’ll need to freshen up a bit. I’ll probably need to stick to short stories for a while for little breaks between my textbook readings for class, so expect a lot of reviews for those in the future!
