The summer is just flying by! I was out this morning picking peas and blueberries. There were a lot of peas, but there were not as many blueberries as previous years. I am still very quiet with my reading, but it is more the time of year than a real slump. This morning I would have normally read, but instead I was outside doing things. I miss my quiet morning reading time, but it will start to work itself back into my routine as the year progresses back towards the colder temperatures. I joined Litsy as bookishnerd, but don't actually have a device that supports it. I was just trying to beat the crowds of the hopeful Android release and get my nickname...
Graphic Novel Year
Saga - Volume 6
The Cutting Season (audio) ~ I have heard really good things about Attica Locke and decided it was finally time to check out her books. This was an audio from Audible and I really enjoyed it. It was a bit out of my normal genres, so it was a nice refreshing listen even if the story matter itself was not a light read! A mystery series that brings in historical elements works for me, though, and I am very glad I gave this a listen. If you have never read her before she is worth it! Strongly recommended!
The Hunt for Vulcan (audio) ~ I was so distracted while trying to listen to this that I kind of regretted doing it on audio. It was a random deal earlier this year and I enjoy space related stuff. And, I did learn a lot. I just didn't retain everything because I couldn't always seem to concentrate. It is really too bad and will likely mean a future reread is in order! It was a definitely it is not you, its me scenario. And, it could really be that I didn't learn enough new stuff to hold my interest... Still not a bad read by any means. Recommended!
Saga - Volume 6 ~ Yay, Saga! I was really excited to see what the next instalment in one of my favourite series would bring. And, it was good! I love this series and all ready cannot wait until Volume 7. This series sort of set things up and so forth, but there were still some really good moments and scenes. I am curious to see how events started in this Volume and previous ones will play out as the series goes forward! Recommended!
The Fireman ~ I actually grabbed a copy of this at my grocery store... It is the only 'book' store in my town and was actually the first book I have ever bought there. But, I was in a reading slump and everyone seemed to be enjoying this... So, I took a gamble! For its size it was a relatively quick read! I found that I was very invested in the overall story and enjoyed all of the references made to pop culture. I am not sure if in the end I loved it, though. It was more of a really, really liked scenario. It made me really excited about Joe Hill, though, and I look forward to more from him. Recommended!
