The novel I finished was Family, by J. California Cooper. I've heard little of this author over the years. What's more, she lived a good portion of her life right here in Texas, not terribly far from where I live. I'm so glad I picked this novel of a slave family's life leading up to, and following, the Civil War. Can't wait to review it!
I went on a bit of a comics jag reading issues seven to 11 of Alex + Ada. If you haven't heard of this series, you must try it! It's about a guy who receives an android from his rich grandmother, and he decides to "unlock" her artificial intelligence so she's sentient. It's been a long time since I've read a series this engaging.
Ares and Aphrodite: Love Wars is new to me. I happened to see it in passing on Comixology, and I really enjoyed the first issue. Enough to download issues two and three. Will Ares is a divorce attorney working for a shady actor, and Gigi Averelle is planning the wedding of the shady actor and his next (young) conquest. I can't wait to dive into the next issues and see where this one goes.
Finally, I continue to love every installment of Batgirl, and issue 38 is no exception. Barbara Gordon chooses to play a little fast and loose with her identity allowing pictures with fans and utilizing social media, but her followers begin to throw some shade her way, which she's certainly not used to.
And of course I'm still reading and loving All the Light We Cannot See. I'll most likely dig into it first this week to try to make a big dent. Twist my arm!
