The Frame-Up
The Frame-Up | Meghan Scott Molin
By day she writes comic books. By night, she lives them. MG Martin lives and breathes geek culture. She even works as a writer for the comic book company she idolized as a kid. But despite her love of hooded vigilantes, MG prefers her comics stay on the page. But when someone in LA starts recreating crime scenes from her favorite comic book, MG is the LAPD's best--and only--lead. She recognizes the golden arrow left at the scene as the calling card of her favorite comic book hero. The thing is...superheroes aren't real. Are they? When too-handsome-for-his-own-good Detective Kildaire asks for her comic book expertise, MG is more than up for the adventure. Unfortunately, MG has a teeny little tendency to not follow rules. And her off-the-books sleuthing may land her in a world of trouble. Because for every superhero, there is a supervillain. And the villain of her story may be closer than she thinks...

This book was amazing! So amazing that I couldn‘t put it down and read it in just a day! A mystery meets fandom in a glorious explosion of fun. MG bothered me at first with her bad attitude towards those who aren‘t involved in fandom but grew on me and her attitude changed as she evolved in the story. Though I also don‘t understand how Matteo could be SO clueless about certain pop culture things. Still a great book and can‘t wait for the sequel!

I enjoyed this mildly #romantsy geeky mystery. Not my usual genre, but was highly recommended by @ValkyrieAndHerBooks and my RL book club picked for this month‘s read. A fun dive into comic/geek culture and all it entails. #mystery

So I was going through my pic.collage back log and realized I never shared this when I read it! I don‘t usually do very well with “casting” for books, but this one was super clear in my head at the time! It‘s one of my favorite reads so far this year, and I‘m super excited for the sequel that‘s coming out soon - 7.9.19! (Will tag the next book in the comments, if you‘re interested!)

ValkyrieAndHerBooks Also, I remembered that you are reading this for your book club this month @Nessavamusic I hope you enjoy it! If not, I promise not to cry about it, but if you do, I will do a happy dance! 💃 And the next book is 2mo
Nessavamusic I am enjoying it, I read book club books slowly and deliberately. Mysteries are not always my favorite but I love the geekdom! 2mo

Ultimately this was just not my sort of thing. I love the idea of applying comic levels of ridiculous to a murder mystery, but the way the case played out drove me crazy and the protagonist felt like a member of a side of fandom I try not to engage with if possible. The number of times non-fannish people were referred to as 'muggles' alone was almost enough to make me snap. I can absolutely see it working for others, it just wasn't my style.

I'm a few pages in and- this might not be my thing? I'm a nerdy woman who grew up adoring comics and cosy mysteries, so I thought that this would be a joy, but between the weirdly condescending way the main character talks about people outside of fandom and the constant random references, this feels far too much like Ready Player One to appeal to me. Hopefully it'll get better once the mystery amps up though

“If it were possible for this guy to be getting less and less my type, he‘s doing it in a hurry. Worse than a Muggle, he‘s a vanilla Muggle.” I‘m falling in love with MG!

“I know better than to upset the Muggles. Even when they are seriously inconveniencing the rest of us in line.” This book is starting off pretty relatable 😂

This was very cute! Kind of a Comic Con cozy, if that‘s a thing...?? #howjessreadsin2019

Finally getting around to my #FebruaryWrapUp! Feb was a very industrious reading month for me! So many good reads to choose from! But out of the first time reads, (Because rereads have an unfair advantage!😘) The Frame Up was definitely my favorite! It checked so many of my boxes! And was wonderfully executed! I pre-ordered the second book and I‘m hoping it will be a long lived series!🤞🏼Side note: Leah on the Offbeat was my fave reread!💋

RachelO Looks like a fantastic month! And you‘re making me think I should reconsider my attitude to rereads (which normally is ‘there‘s just no time!‘, but may be changing.) 6mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @RachelO I never regret a reread! It‘s a wonderful blend of the comfort of visiting old friends, the excitement of noticing things I missed the first time(s) and rediscovering the familiar. They‘re also a faster read, for me at least. And make for good pallet cleansers between new reads that require more brain space for me to digest. 6mo
RachelO @ValkyrieAndHerBooks Love this! And hadn‘t thought of them as being quicker. Might be time to start giving it a go. 😊 6mo

Man! I loved this book! MG, our reluctant heroin, is a snarky comic book writer focused on her career. She‘s not pleased when a casual comment at a coffee shop drags her into a police investigation about a vigilante superhero. But a turn in the investigation makes things personal. Full of witty banter, fandom references and fabulous drag queens, this story is a riot!

I really enjoyed this ebook/audiobook. It was funny and really appealed to my geeky side, not only that I loved the storyline and characters!

It was as though the author noticed the geeky/nerdy pop culture references in Ready Player One then said "hold my beer" in a fantastic way!

This is a pick if you‘re into super hero comic book characters/stories or fun, silly mysteries (a la Janet Evanovich). Not as funny as Evanovich, but a page turner with a good romantic angle, as well. I got a little lost in the “geekdom” because that‘s not typically my thing. For me, this gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars (really 3.5 ⭐️).

Finished my second book of #24B4Monday!

Andrew65 Well done, I have only finished one book so far but close to a second. 🙌👏 9mo
