Hello! Its a lovely stormy Tuesday here in Kansas. And I am not going to lie I 100% forgot about the post yesterday. I was super excited about going to see Captain Marvel, which was amazing. 🙂

So, let’s talk comics! I have only read 1 Marvel comic, Ms. Marvel Vol 1. I have Vol 2 I am going to pick up after I finish my current book. I did not realize there were already like 10 of these and I really need to get on that!

Other comics/graphic novels I’ve read- which there aren’t that many different ones- I Hate Fairyland, Rick and Morty, Fables, Monstress, Saga, and Paper Girls. I also just bought/read the very first volume in the Steel Prince Series by VE Schwab.

I Hate Fairyland consists of 4 volumes -it is complete- all about Gertrude who gets stuck in Fairyland for 30 years! It has lots of cursing and is definitely a Mature read.

Cover for I Hate Fairyland Issue 9.

Rick and Morty are just volumes that spin off of the TV show, pretty self explanatory.

Fables is great! I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first but I am 7 books in and still have like 7(or more) to go. But, it is just about how the Fables live in NYC, in their own little neighborhood, and they also have a farm for fables that cannot change to look like humans. It is also pretty mature, there is nudity and cursing.

Fables Book 1

Monstress … I’m not even really sure what is going on in this series. There is a girl, a cat thing, and a little fox girl… The main girl(not fox girl) has some sort of extra life-form inside of her that can/will destroy her… the cat-thing has like 6 tails, and fox girl is just the cutest little like 10 year old with the ears and tail of a fox. Obviously there is more than that, but… I should really re-read it because I really only have the inkling of a clue as to what is going on in this world.

Monstress Issue 14

Saga and Paper Girls both are written by Brian K Vaughn. Saga was the very first comic I picked up and I read the entire first book in less than an hour! I was super engrossed. Paper Girls … not as good but it isn’t even close to the same type of story Saga is. I would recommend them both. Don’t even read reviews because everything is a spoiler.

Hello my amazing readers!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I am sorry I was supposed to be back last week but I had a death in the family, so… Yea. But it happens and we all learn to live.

So today I am not reviewing another book I am going to show you everything I read last year! And list my top 5. I am not going to list everything because… well thats alot! Lol. 76 to be exact. I think thats the most I have read in a year.

  1. Vicious by V E Schwab
  2. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
  4. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  5. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
  6. The Storyteller by Traci Chee

Okok. There are six. It was really hard to narrow down. Others that almost made it were A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sara J Maas, Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I can’t wait to see what all books I am going to read this year. I already have quite a few pre-ordered!

What are all of you looking forward to ? Any new year’s book resolutions? I am starting a new way I choose my books to read. At the beginning of the month I am choosing my TBR list for that month. I used to …just pick one that looks good, or sometimes I’d number my shelves then roll a die and pick something on that shelf. Lol. So, that’s my new year resolution for my books.

I found these comics on kickstarter. And I read all 3 of them in 1 day. took just under an hour. They were surprisingly good. These are the second set of comics I have helped fund on kickstarter and so far I am 2 for 2 on picking out good ones.

So they are called Crossing. By Enrica Jang. The kickstarter was for 2 and 3 but since I hadn’t read 1 I added that on. They are about a railroad engineer who hits a chick on his first day. And that is about all I can say. All three of them total about 66ish pages. The art is pretty nice too. Sometimes I get turned off to certain comics if I don’t like the art style but this is good. 🙂
