Never leave home without a book. (KaterinaNijenhuis on goodreads)

It is done. This series kept me company for 5 years. And the last arch really turned up the volume one more notch. #comics

I have work to do, but this book is keeping me hostage!!! 😂
Becky Chambers delivers again. I want to know everything about every single character in this book. I never want to leave them and I want to read about them for ever.

And some previous casting news about the Wheel of Time. I think that Mat and Nynaeve look just perfect :)
Rand looks a bit boyish, but maybe it's just the picture.

Lan has been cast. I'm happy with the choice. They just need to “roughen him up“ a bit, but I'm sure make-up and wardrobe has already thought of that ;-)

Athens airport (Greece) now has books on every table at the gates. Not a bad idea 😀

A spontaneous airport buy, but it's Becky Chambers writing a space story, so how bad can it be, right? 😀

Now and Then | William Corlett

I'm really enjoying this book! I love the way each chapter jumps between "then" and "now", as the title suggests. The love story is so tender. I hope everything goes well for Chris. I want the happy ending for him!!

A Partisan's Daughter | Louis de Bernieres

Unreliable narrator, your name is Roza 😁 This was a very quick read I did get into, but I felt that the ending was a bit put on and designed to make the book more or deeper than it was.

A book titled Cold Days might not be considered proper beach reading, but I could hardly interrupt my Dresden Files reread now, could I?

Work is done. And there is nothing else to do but read the last issue of this entertaining story. Pure bliss.

Sometimes I think I do too many rereads, but the beginning of the year was so swamped with work that I didn't have the energy to concentrate on many new books and now it feels wrong not to finish the series 😛

RachelAmphlett I love this series but admit I did struggle with this particular book. Out of so many hits though, I‘m not complaining! 3mo
Katerina @RachelAmphlett The one I like the least till now is Skin Game. It feels a bit like a filler episode that doesn't really add to the overall story. But as you said: no real complaints. 3mo

Time to catch up with the Uncanny X-Men before the House of X spoilers start coming in.

Katerina @GrilledCheeseSamurai I'll get back to you once I've read it. 3mo
Katerina @GrilledCheeseSamurai Oooh...I have so many comments and speculations! 😃 3mo
Katerina Xavier is growing his own X-Men? There was a figure with long red hair and we all now that only one woman has long red hair in the X-universe ? I guess that's why Jean is wearing her old costume. I'm thinking mindcontrol. And I bet Xavier does all that in those black Krakoa "tumors". Banshee is restored? Alpha Flight is working with Hydra? 3mo

Age of X-Man: The Marvelous X-Men | Lonnie Nadler, Zac Thompson
post image

I just finished the Age of X-Man event and I'm not impressed. I enjoy alternate reality story lines, but this one felt like a simple filler that will have no consequences in the long run. But I might be mistaken. Power of X and House of X will show I guess.

I recently heard that this series had started publishing again, so of course I have to reread the older volumes now before I pick up the newer ones. I first picked this up in 2006, but I still love Yun Kouga's style.
Soubi is my favourite 😍 I feel my inner manga-fangirl resurfacing 😂

The Devil You Know | Mike Carey

Pickpick

I picked this up as something to tie me over till the next book in the Dresden Files. Picking a book to be a placeholder probably does any book a disservice, but we've all done it ;)
The feeling in this book is a bit darker and more bleak and the humor more deadpan and less self-depricating than in the DF, which kept me from really getting stuck in. By the last third I was hooked though and I really want to know how the new intern will work out

Well, I guess it was only a matter of time after The Lord of the Rings, The Wheel of Time and Sandman.

Breakfast with Mr & Mrs X. Sadly, these are the last two issues, which is a big shame, since this book never got the chance to get past its prologue. The characters have been established in their new situation, there have been some significant changes for Rogue and now...nothing. Thanks to Marvel's revamping mania 😒

I read the story "Bombshells" over the weekend and loved it. It's great to see some of the events around "Ghost Story" from Molly's point of view.

Katerina @RachelAmphlett There is also the collection "Side jobs", in case you had missed that too ? I'm currently rereading the series and waiting for Peace Talks. Same as every Dresden fan. 4mo

- I tend to buy books on holidays rather than bring them along. I don't plan my reads anyway.
- I need to scope out what kind of book signings are on where I live 😀

This is the book I like the least in the Dresden Files. Not because of the quality of the book, but because of all the suffering Dresden's friends go through. Molly especially breaks my heart. I guess that actually speaks for the quality of the story.

Convenience Store Woman | Sayaka Murata

I picked this book up on a whim, because I liked the cover. It turned out to be completely different from what I had expected, though. The numerous blurbs on the front and back cover led me to believe it would be a lighthearted comedy about a quirky woman working at a kombini in Japan. The book turned to be much darker and at times even a bit disturbing.

You've allprobably already seen it, but for those who haven't: Litsy is now on the web as well :)
The first thing I noted about it was that the images are larger and we can now see our books in all their photogenic glory :D
The app will probably always remain my go-to incarnation of litsy, but I think the website is a very nice addition.

With regard to the current weather in Chicago... I don't want to point any fingers, but we all know about Harry Dresden's "dealings" with the Winter Court. Just sayin'...

I won't go into any more details to avoid spoilers ?
