Me on This Week's Book Week (96)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

Well, it might as well be spring here. It's been sunny and rainy, sometimes all at once. ;)

I was thinking about comics this week, mostly because I finally read Noelle Stevenson's Nimona. It's so cool. It's medieval with futuristic technology and good vs evil with the lines super blurred and Nimona is so weird and abstract and fascinating as a character. Start here at page 1 if you're interested. Or, if you want to wait until the story is finished, check bookstores next year for the print version. :)

I was also reading The Fox Sister by Christina Strain and Jayd Aït-Kaci this week. It's really interesting, it takes place in Korea in the 60's and it's about a girl and the kumiho, a nine-tailed fox demon, who killed her family years earlier. The first page is here, but I saw that they're about 30 pages from the end so you could always wait (if you remember).

What do you guys think about comics, webcomics, and graphic novels? Do you read any? Are you looking forward to any new releases in the next few months?

Reviews for this coming week will feature Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen (Tuesday) and Wayfarer by Lili St. Crow (Friday). :)
Unspeakable by Caroline Pignat (from Penguin Canada)
Dreamwood by Heather Mackey (from Penguin Canada)
Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson (from Simon & Schuster Canada)
Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood (from Simon & Schuster Canada)
Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore (from Disney-Hyperion through NetGalley)
Capricious by Gabrielle Prendergast (from Orca Books)


  1. Unspeakable and Dark Metropolis look really good!

  2. I love Amy & Roger's Epic Detour! So I'm looking forward to Since You've Been Gone! Enjoy!
