My reading had sort of slowed down for a bit there, but I think it is starting to pick back up. This weekend has been a reading weekend. I anticipate today to include reading as well! I hope May continues to be a good month with lots of great reads. It is my most popular month for pre-orders, though, so I am looking forward to the books that are going to be released as the month progresses!
Graphic Novel Year
Peter Panzerfaust - Volume 2: Hooked
Peter Panzerfaust - Volume 3: Cry of the Wolf
Peter Panzerfaust - Volume 4: The Hunt
Peter Panzerfaust - Volume 2 ~ I still can't believe I didn't know this series existed until recently. Peter had a sword fight that resulted in cutting off a German's hand. And, now we have Hook. The story plays really well against the back drop of World War II! Recommended!
The Twyning ~ This book was kind of an impulse read off of Scribd. While I did enjoy it, it wasn't knocking my socks off and I think that is why my reading slowed down a bit. I think it was timing... It is a book about rats with intelligence. We had something getting into our garbage... It hit a little too close to home! I did like it, though, and would read Blacker again. I think at a different point in time this would have been much better for me! Recommended!
Daughter of Smoke & Bone ~ My audio listening continues! I am so glad that I finally read this book. I actually own it in paperback, too, and both options sat on my shelves unread for years. The downside is I keep starting new series... I would like to listen to the rest of this series on audio, but I am still working my way through my audio TBR so have to wait. Definitely a series to check out, though. I can't wait to find out what happens next! Strongly recommended!
The Raven Boys ~ Another series that I have heard lots of good things about and never got around to reading... I think the reason I have resisted Stiefvater before is I tried to read her Shiver back when I was getting kind of sick of werewolves, vampires, etc. So, she sort of fell off my radar even though I hear lots of good thing about her. And, the good things were right! I am enjoying this so far and own the next two on audio, so happy reading to me! Strongly recommended!
Bone Gap ~ This book was one I had planned to get to before the year was over and I am so glad I got a chance to read it now! I started it Friday evening and was finished it by Saturday evening. It sucked me right in and I had a great time with it! I have to admit I had no idea what this book was even about. I try not to read too much about books because spoilers... I knew it was magic realism, though, and that is something that puts books on my radar. And, it was definitely worth the read!! Strongly recommended!
Peter Panzerfaust - Volume 3 ~ One thing I was curious about was how they were going to introduce Tiger Lily, but then they did and at first I was nervous and then it all sort of clicked into place. I enjoyed her character and we get to see a lot from her as the series progresses! Recommended!
Peter Panzerfaust -Volume 4 ~ And then it was done... I don't get it... I assume the series must have got cancelled? This volume has been out for a while and there seemed to be a lot of loose ends that never really got addressed. This book was basically about Tiger Lily and some characters we hadn't seen in ages. I know they wanted to leave the magic of Peter kind of open-ended, but even he was hardly in this one. So, I was kind of disappointed with the ending...
