And, here we are with the month of March. I have actually been blogging a bit! I am not sure how long that will continue... My goal is to at least post on Sunday and record what I read each week and to post a month end post. If I do that, great. If I do more than that, even better! My reading will likely quiet down a bit in March because I cannot keep reading comics like I have been because I will easily run out of unread ones before the end of the year. It was fun to read through my stacks, though. There are others I never got to and I continue to aspire to having everything read by the end of the year. I am also doing pretty good reading books as they enter the house, so that is always a plus!
Graphic Novel Year
Saga Volume 4
Saga Volume 5
Black Widow - Volume 3: Last Days
S.H.I.E.L.D - Volume 1: Perfect Bullets
As You Wish - I loved this. I love the movie and have wanted to check this out since it was released. It was fun to get a behind the scenes look at everything and I enjoyed how he managed to get other cast members and crew to add in their own thoughts. It definitely brought back a lot of fond memories about my first time reading the book and seeing the movie. I still own both and think a reread of The Princess Bride would be a fun idea! Strongly recommended!
Saga Volume 4 (reread) - I actually blogged about this book and everything!
Saga Volume 5 - I love this series! I blogged about all five books right here.
Black Widow - Volume 3 - I love the Black Widow as a character. I read the first two volumes in this series last year and I believe this completes this particular spin-off. It was fun to see her grow away from the larger series she is in and get to know other sides of her. I think there could be a Black Widow movie and it would do really well. Recommended!
Anna Dressed in Blood - Well, this was a creepy book, but I enjoyed it! I have seen this series around likely since its release, but never got around to reading it. I started hearing about it again, though, and Scribd added it. So, time to give it a try! It is a story about a ghost hunter which is not as big a paranormal fad as some of the others, so this worked for me. I am glad I gave it a read and look forward to trying the sequel. Recommended!
ApocalyptiGirl - This book popped up as a recommendation on Amazon a few weeks ago and caught my attention. Then, I asked for some comic book recommendations and this was on the list. So, I decided to give it a try. First off all, there is a cat on the cover and its name is Jelly Bean! Secondly, it is a very original take on the Apocalypse idea. The art is definitely different from the norm, too. I am glad I took a chance on it because I love kick-ass female characters. Recommended!
S.H.I.E.L.D. - Volume 1 - The thing with Marvel Unlimited is I read issues as they are released, so to work up to a trade can take a few months. I went through most of the new series last year and this was one I started. I really like this series and wish I was doing better at actually watching the show! agent Coulson is my favourite. I love his car! Recommended!
A Darker Shade of Magic - Okay, let's face facts here... I hardly read any books actually released in 2015 last year. I missed hearing about most of them. So, this only started hitting my radar around Christmas to the point where I actually walked into a bookstore and grabbed a copy! And, I loved it. It is definitely fantasy at its best, but it also has an intriguing representation of a possible end of world scenario involving magic. I cannot wait to read the sequel and strongly, strongly recommend this book!!!
