last week due to a family emergency, but all is well now so I am back to share what I've been reading!
(thanks to Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for starting #IMWAYR)
Red Glove by Holly Black
The Astonishing X-Men Vol. 1: Gifted by Joss Whedon
Bink & Gollie: Two for One by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee
The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman
Batgirl Vol. 1: The Darkest Reflection by Gail Simone
Batman: Year One by Frank Miller
The White Darkness by Gerladine McCaughrean
I was lucky this week, I adored every last book I read. Lots of five star books in this group! You may have noticed that a large portion of my reading material was graphic novels. I am now in charge or ordering GNs for the Juvenile and Teen sections at my library. I am trying to becoming more well-read so that I have some idea of what I am doing while ordering! I am *really* enjoying reading them.
Also, The White Darkness easily falls into my list of Top Ten Printz books. So, so good and very unique. The heroine reminded me a lot of what I was like as a teenager (except for the whole trip to Antarctica. Never got around to doing that). She's so flawed, but I still rooted for her to survive. McCaughrean's writing is oh-so-beautiful and the book made me feel so COLD. Such a vivid setting. I think dear Uncle Victor would also make it onto my list of top 3 YA novel villains (along with Leck from Graceling and that dude from the first Monstrumologist book).
Anyway, here's what I am currently reading (and rereading):
Superman: Red Son by Mark Millar
Birds of Prey Vol. 1: Trouble in Mind by Duane Swierczynski
REREAD The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
Also plugging away on volumes 7-12 of the new 52 Batgirl comics by Gail Simone.
I hope to read this week:
Fables Vol 1: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham
Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore
Sherlock Holmes Vol. 1: The Trial of Sherlock Holmes by Leah MOore and John Reppion
The Body of Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci
Postcards from No Man's Land by Aidan Chambers
What are YOU reading, hmmmm?
