Julius Caesar by Philip Freeman - this biography took me forever to finish... which is odd, because it was good, interesting, and accurate. I think I just wasn't in the right head space to read endless campaign histories. I still highly recommend it though.
The Just City by Jo Walton - the concept of this book piqued my interest, and it did what it set out to do: serve as an experiment of time-travel, classical Greece, Platonic ideals, and showing just how human people can be, no matter how many ideals they are held up to. The ending was very disappointing and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as her other books.
Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery - continuing on my Anne adventure. I'll admit to finding them relaxing and a little uplifting. It's hard not to feel a little better when the main character is so optimistic and determined to see the humour in every situation.
Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery
Indexing: Reflections by Seanan McGuire - my love for this author knows no bounds. Though I'll admit this wasn't her best work, I still loved every second of it and devoured it in less than a day.
The Assassin's Blade: The Throne of Glass Novellas by Sarah J. Maas - a little backstory to straighten out the ongoing storyline. I would have liked to have started here, though I don't know if it would have captured my interest like the first real novel did.
Journey into Mohawk Country by George O'Connor - a beautifully illustrated graphic novel, but the "storyline" (based on the diaries of a Dutch settler) was boring and uneventful

Captain America: Civil War (2016) - fun to watch, funny, and more than a little ridiculous. I say again, how is there not a Black Widow movie? Because Antman? And a Spiderman reboot (for the, what, fourth time!). And ugh.
