Everything I Read in May 2014

I’ve been neglecting this blog lately. Let’s bring things back with a list of everything I read in May. The comic list, you may notice, is shorter than normal. That’s because I never got a chance to go to the comic book store this month due to working so many extra hours at my day job. So all that’s listed there are the comics I borrow from my husband, as he buys his digitally.

Links lead to goodreads reviews.

    Isn’t he your husband now? πŸ˜‰

    Tell me your thoughts on THE MARTIAN. I’m torn on trying that one.

      D’oh! Gotta fix that one.

      As for The Martian, I liked it as opposed to loved it, which is strange because most people loved it. I admire it for how readable it is given its dense subject matter, and I really liked the main character. At the same time, its almost written entirely in dialogue, or in written reports, which only draws attention to the fact that a lot of the characters sound really similar, which can make the secondary cast seem pretty interchangeable.

      Still, I’m happy I picked it up and would recommend it to others.
