It's Bout of Books week, and I may have lost my mind. Work will be hairy because I have a draft of all the alumni magazine feature stories due on Friday. Yayyyy, work! I also have online classes starting today. Another semester of composition...here I come! Finally, the aforementioned Bout of Books. I'm super excited, but let's just hope my brain isn't so hazy that I'm worthless.
This weekend I finished...
The Undertaking of Lily Chen, by Danica Novgorodoff, may not have quiiiiite lived up to my expectations, sadly. It wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but the plot was thinner than I expected while the artwork far surpassed my expectations. A mixed bag.
The Supernatural Enhancements, by Edgar Cantero, on the other hand, blew me out of the water. While I did have some minor qualms with it, I found it to be one of the most fun books I've read in a while. Ghosts, eery dreams, an all-seeing eye, and one heck of a twisted ending. Looking forward to reviewing this one.
Now I'm on to the next book...
I KNOW, I KNOW! You're tired of seeing Tell the Wolves I'm Home pop up on my blog, and then I don't read it, and yadda yadda. No really! This time I'm reading it. I'm 100 pages in, and I'm a smitten kitten. It made me cry twice in the first 44 pages...while I was at the auto tire store. Ummm, yeah. Pretty sure I lived up to every female stereotype those guys had, but what do ya do?
I really haven't the foggiest idea what I'll pick up later in the week. Probably one of the books I listed in my Bout of Books goals, but it might also be...
Lumberjanes, issue 05! This is a series by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, and Brooke Allen. This comic comes from BOOM! Studios, and it's the MOST fun series I've read in a really long time. Smart, sassy, action-packed and with ridonkulously dynamic artwork. I can't get enough. I'm subscribed to the single issues on Comixology, and 05 is out this week.
What are you reading?
