It’s meme season again! Or something because I just got tagged in a bunch of them and I didn’t want to clutter up my Facebook page and/or feed, so I’m posting them here.
10 Books Meme
List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard – they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tagged by Myka and Anne.

- The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
- The Griffin & Sabine Series – Nick Bantok

- Steampunk – Joe Kelly
- Batwoman: Elegy – Greg Rucka

I’d bookmarked this fanmix yourself meme a while back and almost forgot about it. I have a whole bunch of fan mixes bookmarked on 8tracks so this was fun. I was going to create an actual playlist of this, but my music library’s still in such a mess since I botched up moving files from my old laptop last year and I really couldn’t be bothered to dig up CDs right now haha!
Anyway, that’s enough procrastination for one night. I suck at tagging, so if you want to do any of these, consider yourself tagged. Link me up if you do! 🙂
