Heather and I were having a long round of Facebook voice chat the other night on our respective ways home and she mentioned having caved and bought A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. I honestly can't say I was planning to read this one. There was lots of waffling, but since she took the plunge, I suggested a buddy read, and here we are. I'm only about 7% but I'm enjoying Yanagihara's voice a lot. Her word choice is almost whimsical at times, which surprised me. It seems like it's taking a long time to really get a handle on who's who of the four main characters, but with 700+ pages ahead...not surprised.
It's #ComicsFebruary! Heather, Kailana, Trish and I are reading Scott McCloud's newest graphic novel, The Sculptor. This is another chunk of a book at 488 pages, but I know they'll go quickly. I'm a big fan of McCloud's, but I've only read his comics non-fiction. I'm just a few pages into The Sculptor, but I can already tell it's going to thrill me. He does such lovely, nuanced things with images.
Coming up this week: a proper post about my plans for #ComicsFebruary and a review of Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation.
