But why stop there! I'm going again! Into the Maroon!
I seem to have given up writing actual reviews, instead contenting myself with a few sentences in my Monday round-ups, so I'm not much use to people looking for ideas. Sorry!
No glitch to give myself a head start this time, so this one will probably finish over the summer. I feel like if I do it once a season I'm doing pretty well, and it also means I have a nice variety in what I'm reading.
