So, I was on VACATION last week. You would think I would have gotten tons and tons of reading done, but nope. I worked on my new house. Worked and worked. Mr. N. and I also adopted a Great Dane (who is hugemongeous) but that is a story for another blog post. Because today it's Monday and here's what I'm reading!
Well, the only things I read this week are picture books and comic books. Not any particularly earth-shattering picture books, but some really fine comic books. I am all caught up on the DC New 52 Wonder Woman and Batwoman which are both very interesting and I will definitely keep reading. It intrigues me how different these two series are from each other. I guess I thought all superhero comic books were the same, just with different characters, but that's not the case at all! Wonder Woman and Batwoman are both strong female heroes, but that's their only similarity. Their stories and styles are so completely unique. Also started reading the new Captain Marvel comic books which I LOVE. I just can't seem to get enough of those women pilots (see: my fanatical devotion to Code Name Verity).
I am currently reading:
Soulless by Gail Carriger (I'm almost done!)
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John Le Carre. (The writing is fabulous but it's so confusing - even though I've seen both movie versions!)
Batman: The Long Halloween by Jim Loeb and Tim Sale (really good. It's an old-fashioned mystery which is my favorite kind of story!)
Hellblazer vol. 1: Original Sins by Jamie Delano, John Ridgway, and Alfred Alcala (not a fan of the artwork but I love the story. It's terribly creepy.)
The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper (LOVE this series. I even went out and bought this book since my Netgalley loan expired before I finished reading it. I couldn't wait til the library copy came in! It will be easier to finish now that I have a hard copy)
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (yes, I'm reading it again. This is my 3rd time if you're keeping count. I just love it more Every Single Time I read it.)
This week, I'm going to start:
The Diviners by Libba Bray (on audiobook)
Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz (on audiobook)
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan (not on audiobook)
I know I said I was going to read Seraphina, but I've heard that it is a sensational audiobook, which I just ordered it for my library, so I think I will wait and listen to it instead of reading the hard copy.
Well, well, well. That's it for me! What are *you* reading this week?
