Looks fun! Will hold off on cracking this one open until some chores are done, tho 😄

I‘m kind of surprised by the fact that I managed to meet/exceed my reading goal for the year this early! Thanks to audiobooks, no doubt. I‘ve also met my tbr goals - and the only outstanding goals are Reading Women Challenge (3 left) and Book Riot areas Harder Challenge (1 left). #readinggoals #thestorygraph

Slowly perusing this sumptuous tome of photographs taken in various libraries around the western world… gorgeousness and stillness throughout. I would love to visit many of these libraries - some to revel in the beauty, others to see how they‘ve changed since the photographs were taken (mostly in the 90s and very early 2000s).

Nute Wow! Each is stunning!🤩 1mo

I don‘t know much about John Cena, but his little book of affirmations is surprisingly delightful - helped much by the lovely illustrations. (Super random new library shelf grab ftw 😄)

October was another good reading month - if I keep up this streak I‘ll complete my reading goals by the end of this month (🤞)! I‘m loving how #thestorygraph keeps adding new graphs/stats- the daily tracking is something I‘ve just recently started taking advantage of - time will tell if I keep up 😬
My only quibble with October is how little nonfiction I read - I def need to fix that! #nonfictionnovember 🤩#monthlystats #storygraph

This was really interesting! A bit of a slow burn start - but once it got going, whoo boy! This had so many things I liked! Basic premise: A comic book artist gets pulled into the world of espionage. Of course there‘s more to and the fun of it is reading it fresh. Recommended.

I tore through these YA Techno Thrillers in a matter of days (and just in time for book club, too)! 😄
I was primed to enjoy these because I loved the short story that inspired them - these books are much darker than the original story, but they are eminently readable and I highly recommend.

I had pretty low expectations for this going in - the original series still holds a special place in my heart. I‘m happy to say that I really liked this reimagining/continuation - and I wouldn‘t be mad if there were more of this to come.

#thestorygraph has added more stats options so I‘m playing around with those and having fun (I think the graph for print vs digital is off, so I need to look into my default book settings 😆)

Finally catching up with Monstress. I read the first two volumes of the series years ago (reread them this week as a refresher) and then put it aside for other less complex series 😆
The art in Monstress is just stunning. I often find myself having to reread some panels cause I‘ll get lost in the details of the art. That‘s not to say the story isn‘t compelling - the art and writing complement each other very well in this series
Still loving it!

Ody-C, Volume 1 | Matt Fraction

Mehso-so

Hoo boy, was this a struggle to read. My expectations for this one may have been too high (or it really is just that bad, lol).
Concept is very cool: gender-bent retelling of the odyssey set in space! 🤩
The execution of the concept is uneven at best. So unfortunate, cause I usually like Fraction‘s work. I probably won‘t continue the series, cause I can‘t imagine it improves as it goes along.

Picked this up on the recommendation of a comic book shop employee a couple years ago. I was looking for something similar to Saga and this was their top rec. while not quite as sweeping or complex as Saga, it‘s really good at world building and so far I‘m enjoying learning about these characters.
Basic premise: a queen has been turned into a tiger. The queen and her bodyguard (and lover) quest to magical Isola to unravel the curse.

Injection, Volume 1 | Warren Ellis

Pickpick

By the end of this first volume I‘m still not entirely sure what‘s going on, but I‘m definitely intrigued. This series is a mashup of genres: sci-fi, folklore, horror, thriller, supernatural… and it‘s absolutely working for me. Add in some smarty pants characters tinged with darkness, and yeah - I‘m all in. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing what comes if it all.

Eyelit @vivastory first volume down, two to go and, I‘m liking it so far. 5mo
Eyelit @vivastory update: finished the other two volumes. Still good, and more linear than the first, so the development of story and characters is better… but volume 3 ends on a bit of a cliffhanger and from what I can understand from the net the series is on indefinite hiatus… so heads up on that business if you decide to read the series 😄 5mo
vivastory Thanks for the tag. I just saw the notifications! This sounds really intriguing & unique. I placed a hold on volumes 1 & 2 at the library. Hopefully they will resume the series in the future. 5mo

This was A Trip. The world in this series is fascinating, weird, and brutal.
