Hello again, readers! I was pretty dang busy reading this month, and made sure that I got plenty of reading done! Let’s jump right into what I read this past month!
I read eleven books last month (three of which were audio books), and I’m kind of proud of that. I’m hoping to go a step further and read twelve this month, but first let’s go over what I read!
In installment 4 of the Last Man Series, a lot happens. We open with Marianne and Adrian talking to a woman who works at a business making pop stars, and it escalates from there.
Last week I wrote about book 1 of this series. Before going further, I suggest you read that, so spoilers from this do not ruin the experience of that. I also recommend you read this series, because it’s beautiful and reading it (instead of a review of it) is the best way to experience it. That being said, on with the show.
Yesterday I was hunting through our collection of graphic novels to find something that I could write about for today, and coming up empty handed. When I asked the boyfriend what his suggestion was, he mentioned Last Man, a series of graphic novels published by First Second that a video game (Last Fight) based on the characters in it. We searched until we found the first book, The Stranger, and I cozied up to read it.
Fangirls, ages ago I bought Bandette Volume One from Earthworld comics per the suggestion from Andrew. I loved it. Honestly, it was one of those part ones that I didn’t think it was possible to match with a sequel. But the other day I went to Earthworld for my haul, and found that Volume Two of Bandette was out, so I needed to get it.
Unfortunately, yes. I did see this movie first. If I had known that this was a comic, I certainly would have read it ages ago. But sometimes, you’re just not in the know and you don’t realize it was a book first until the movie has ended. I’ve heard, and sometimes agreed, with that idea that whatever you experience first, you’ll enjoy better. It’s what you’ll compare the second to. But, rather than being able to pick one, I’m finding that they each make me look at the other one a bit differently.
