Road Narrative Update for February 2019

I've decided the thumbnails and bookcovers take up too much space. Instead I'm just listing the books read and reviewed and the essays written in order of their placement on the spectrum. All together I covered 24 narratives in the spectrum. That includes 12 reviews, 5 essays, and 7 books still needing to reviews.
