What are you currently reading?
Still making very slow progress on The Mayor of Castro Street
. I think I read one chapter since last week, lol. ^_^;;
I also have technically started, in that I opened the book, but have not read a single word yet, the most recent Wells & Wong mystery, Mistletoe and Murder
. Now that I've caught up, I'll be super sad not to have any more of this series to read! D: What did you recently finish reading?
A lot. O_O This whole being home from work thing has really done wonders for getting through my to-read pile!
Bookwise, I finished reading First Class Murder
and the next book in the series, Jolly Foul Play
. I like these books so much!
Comicswise, I finished all the Rick and Morty comics
(including the one that came out this week), also also the Lil' Poopy Superstar miniseries
. Definitely some fun story arcs in there (I really liked the one that just ended with Jerry from the doofus universe taking over the galaxy).
I also finally read the Star Wars Force Awakens tie-in comic, Shattered Empire
, about Poe's mom. That's been on my ipad for a while! It was okay. Really nice art, but the story was just sort of meh.
Another one that's been on my ipad for a while is Lost at Sea
, a graphic novel by Bryan Lee O'Malley, author of Scott Pilgrim. I love Scott Pilgrim, yet somehow never got around to reading any of his other stuff. I think this may be his first graphic novel; it definitely feels a lot more amateurish than Scott Pilgrim, but I enjoyed it.
I've read a lot of manga, too! I read volumes 2 and 3 of Otouto no Otto
, which continues to be awesome. That's all there is so far, and it looks like the next volume might wrap it up, which makes me sad, but I'm glad to have found it.
I also read volume 13 of Silver Spoon
and volume 13 of Yotsuba&
, both of which have sadly become the sort of series that is on hiatus more than it's actually published, which is sad, because I like them both a lot.
Then I read volume 13 (a lot of 13s here for some reason) of Ore Monogatari!!
, which turned out to be the final volume. I'd had no idea it ended! I'm so bad at keeping on top of the series I'm following. ^_^;; Overall I was happy with the ending and I think it ended at a good place. ( Slight spoiler )
And finally, I finished up Aozora Yell
. The last volume of this I'd read was volume 12, and then even though I had the next couple volumes on my ipad for ages, I just never read them. So since I was clearing stuff off my ipad, I thought I'd see how many volumes I was behind, only to find that it had ended at volume 19, so now seemed a perfect time to finish it up. I liked the ending a lot!What do you think you'll read next?
Well, today is my last day of vacation, so I probably won't be getting as much read as I have been (no probably about it, really), but in addition to finishing the books I'm currently reading, I want to continue getting through the manga and comic backlog on my ipad. But I don't know what I'm going to choose next!
