I am not even sure why I didn't read more this week. There was no real distraction... I know that Saturday night I got caught up catching up on this show that is about Oak Island. Oak Island is an island off the coast of Nova Scotia where there is possible treasure buried. The 'money pit' was found back in like 1795, 6 people have died, and we still have no idea what is down there. So, apparently some Americans bought part of the controlling interest in the island and they are trying to solve the mystery. I am a little disappointed that if they solve the mystery it will be Americans that do it, though. Anyway, I have always been interested in this aspect of history and the show is rather interesting. It is called 'The Curse of Oak Island'. So, my plans to have a read-a-thon yesterday didn't happen quite as I planned. Maybe today!
Lucy Maud Montgomery Year
Yeah, the whole reading of graphic novels has pushed this to the back-burner. I either have to squeeze some in before the month is over or March is going to be a Montgomery month.
Graphic Novel Year
This week I reread Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. I liked it better with the second read. Then, I read Volume 1 and 2 of House of Mystery. This is on my quest to find some new series in preparation for Fables wrapping up soon. This series finished in 2011, though, so it won't really fit the criteria. I like it, though, and look forward to more in the series.
Other Reading Projects
I have been collecting science-fiction that caught my interest after reading What Makes This Book so Great by Jo Walton. I read Random Acts of Senseless Violence by Jack Womack. It was really good!
Random Acts of Senseless Violence counts for the Postal Reading Challenge. Roomies does as well.
Fun Home and the two The House of Mystery books count for the Graphic Novel Challenge.
I don't know what is up with audiobooks this month! I haven't really listened in like 2 weeks. I need to get back in the groove.
Man, I don't know... I keep picking books up and haven't finished many of them.
This book was surprisingly really good. I had never heard of it before, but it interested me when I heard Jo Walton talking about it. I am surprised this book isn't more popular. Review coming soon!
I heard about this book just before it came out and decided I was going to read it for the Postal Reading Challenge. It was nothing amazing, but I liked it!
This was a reread. I am not sure why, but the first time I read this I didn't really like it. I am glad I gave it a second chance because I did like it better the second time around. This is why I should reread more often!
I all ready reviewed this one here.
It's been a while since I started a new graphic novel series. This one is interesting... I don't think it was overly popular when it came out, some of the volumes are out-of-print, but I am curious enough to see where it goes.
Yep. This is like Jack of Fables. Bill Willingham steps back and I just don't think Matthew Sturges is that awesome without him. That being said, I like this more than I expected to and plan to stick to the series.
