This week I actually finished a good number of fairly lengthy books! Yay!
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, Klaus Johnson, and Lynn Varley
The writing is exceptional, but I didn't care for the artwork. A powerful story though a bit confusing. Not one of my favorite GNs, but I see why it is so well-respected.
Postcards from No Man's Land by Aidan Chambers
Probably my least favorite Printz book. I found it boring, the characters either uninteresting or downright unlikable, the themes confused and muddied. The setting was wonderfully drawn, but, not being a particular fan of Amsterdam, the loving discriptions left me cold.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Ok, guys, I pretty much loved this book. The characters were beyond despicable and it's probably longer than it needs to be, but I'm a sucker for a complicated, twisty plot and, boy, does this deliver!
The night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The plot (what there is of it) doesn't really make complete sense, but the writing and setting are oh-so-beautiful that I didn't really care. Loved most of the characters (except Marco - he seemed sort of swarmy to me). So deeply imaginative.
I am currently reading:
Soulless by Gail Carriger
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John Le Carre
The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper
I hope to start:
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Batman: The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale
The League of Delphi by Chris Everheart
