Got through this BEAUTIFUL graphic novel this weekend. It literally had everything I've ever wanted from sci-fi: badass ladies, action, a protagonist with a ~mysterious~ origin story, and a 💯 love interest (seriously, Lola is the bomb dot com). Can't decide if I want to wait to buy volume 2 or buy the next set as issues but serious, Image comics has been knocking it outta the park these days 🔥🔥🔥 #weekendreads #sundayreview

MeganB @Jas16 I definitely recommend them!! When Heart of Obsidian came out, I managed to read all 12 that were out at the time over a summer, it was glorious! And this one is actually a pretty good one to come in on, it's a little bit separate from the first 15 books. 2y

First, what I liked: pretty much everything. Nate was a fab narrator and I thought him and Trent worked so well as a couple. I ESPECIALLY liked that they didn't pretend they didn't like each other. There was A+ communication going on! I also liked the world of this hidden community of psychics and how real world differences play out within it. Race, class, sexuality are at play, even with people who can read each others minds or see the future.

MeganB There were a few things I wish had gotten some more attention, mainly what exactly is the extent of Nate's abilities. I wish we'd learned a little more about them as well as one part when he uses his abilities to influence someone's actions. That felt like it wasn't really addressed in a satisfactory way. But other than that one small thing, I thought this was a really great opening to a series I am definitely looking forward to continuing. 3y

Ok, finally making this attempt. The idea of dealing with fantasy the last few weeks has just been very unappealing. Maybe my brain will be up to the idea of world building to enjoy this one. If not, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Oh my God, it was perfect!! I haven't read her entire backlist but Alisha Rai has yet to disappoint in the 7 books I've read. This book made me feel so much! And forbidden love is not my favorite trope (I always find myself thinking "ummm y'all are grown ass adults, do what(who)ever you want) but this was SO INTENSE that it made sense for them not to go up against their families at first. #romantsy (continued in the comments ??????)

MeganB They had to grow as people and they are seriously great people and I just love all the supporting characters too ❤️

Also, Jackson and Sadia are going to be 🔥🔥🔥! I might die waiting for that book. That's why you never read arcs people! The wait feels so much longer!!!!

Ugh my heart is bursting! And I was nervous because I didn't like Caleb AT ALL but 3 pages in or so & I was all in for this book. So good&Oli was surprisingly adorable too. I did NOT expect that though I do think we could've gone into how his time between being disowned & finding his way effected his relationships. Anyway I'm still super stressed about the next one (David & Raymond can't have more problems, they've been through too much already!).

Rat Queens Vol. 3 | Kurtis J. Wiebe

Not only is this the first book I've finished in a week, but I finally caught up on the kerfluffle that happened around the artists. (What a mess, btw). But this was all done before all that happened and it was definitely another solid entry in this grown-up Tamora Pierce graphic novel series. I love these characters and they don't disappoint here at all. ❤

MarriedtoMrT Uh oh. There was a kerfuffle? Does that mean no more Rat Queens? 3y
MeganB @MarriedtoMrT They actually just relaunched the series this month! But no more Tess Fowler :( 3y

I'm definitely enjoying this book (almost killed myself laughing while reading in bed last night. If your asthma's acting up, don't laugh lying down, trust) but only if I turn off the part of my brain that just *rages* at this shit. The author clearly doesn't like it either, but she takes a more "good lord how ridiculous" view when all I can think of is how this lingers and ruins girls' lives today ?? #adventuresinnonfiction

Not outSIDE, per se, but I had to go outside to get to the laundromat on this icky rainy/snowy day. The only thing making it survivable is being able to read while I wait. #riotgrams

Chachic Sucks that you have to go outside to do laundry! My flat has its own washing machine but most machines here only have spin dry so we have to hang clothes up to dry (I believe they do the same in Europe). #laundrywoes 3y
MeganB @Chachic yea, when I move (in like 7+ years) the number 1 requirement is a washer/dryer IN the building at least though ideally in the apartment itself. And I actually end up hanging about half my clothes to dry anyway because they're made of stuff that isn't supposed to go in a dryer. Somehow I have managed to get the worst of both worlds 😂 3y
Chachic Yeah, the dryer can destroy some clothes, right? Maybe half my clothes won't be able to go into a dryer anyway. Although some of the clothes I have are supposed to be hand washed but I put them in a laundry bag and still throw them into the machine.😂 3y
See All 6 Comments
MeganB @Chachic yea, mostly sweaters get all stretched out or shrunk and stuff. But I do the same thing with hand wash stuff! Or it says dry clean only and I hand wash it because I'm NOT paying for dry cleaning, that stuff is wayyyy too expensive for anything that's not like a formal gown or something. So dry clean stuff gets hand spot cleaned to get rid of any marks or whatever 😂 3y
Chachic Ahh glad I don't really have sweaters, only knit cardigans. It's eternally summer in Singapore, it only gets cold in the office because of the aircon. Haha I also don't buy clothes that need to be ironed. 3y
MeganB @Chachic that's so smart! I order things online that end up needing ironing and it's always terrible because I'm very lazy when it comes to laundry and I'm at least self aware enough to know it. If I could ever pick a super power, it would be Mary Poppins's snap and cleaning power! 3y

An author with my name: Megan Erickson. I love her books so much, especially the Cyberlove series with Santino Hassell which has a new book out next week 🎉 #riotgrams (bonus appearance by Megan Whalen Turner who ain't too shabby herself)

melrailey I've bought the first one in this series but not read it yet. 3y
Chachic Lucky you, you share MWT's name! I need to read books by Megan Erickson. Which one is a good title to start with? 3y
MeganB @Chachic they're both so great! I'd suggest starting with either the Mechanics of love series (3 brothers own an auto shop in a small town), which is the one I tagged OR the Cyberlove series which she writes with Santino Hassell which is m/m where all the couples fall in love via technology of some sort. The 1st one is (edited) 3y

MeganB @Chachic She also has an m/m series with Berkeley but I haven't read those. I think those focus on guys in the arts? I know one's an actor and maybe another is a photographer? And this year she's releasing some paranormal and suspense that I'm really excited about! 3y
MeganB @melrailey I read them a while ago, but I really enjoyed them! Her voice is super fun but still really emotional 3y
Chachic I added Dirty Talk and Strong Signal to my wishlist. I'm always willing to try a new-to-me romance author because it's so difficult to find authors to love! Looks like you're really a fan of her work. I'd be interested in trying her paranormal novels too. 3y
Chachic I think paranormal romance is such a fun genre and I've tried and enjoyed a few titles but I wouldn't say that I loved them. 3y
MeganB @Chachic paranormal can be kind of hit or miss for me, but when it's a hit I really love it! She has one paranormal out now but I haven't read it yet so idk if it's any good. 3y
MeganB @Chachic and yay for adding to stacks 😊 Hopefully you like them, recommending is slightly stressful because I'm never sure of what I like is actually good or if it's just me! 3y
Chachic Ha! I used to get stressed when I first started recommending books and then I realized it's not like I get annoyed when I read a book someone recommended and didn't like it. It's just part of trying things out. 3y
MeganB @Chachic that's an excellent way to look at it! 3y

Finally finished it! So glad I reread this one, it's just as wonderful as I remember. Granted, if I was reading it new I probably wouldn't love how much time is spent on their childhoods but the payoff is so great 😍 They've loved each other for so long! And that sunscreen scene is surprisingly still smokin' even though the last time I read it, I was twelve (or maybe 11? Idk😐). Guess I had good taste, even then 😉

Blah, I couldn't get the crop right for the whole cover, but this is doubling as my favorite villain #riotgrams post! This series is amazing and the last book totally loved up to the promise. Seeing the Eden council members get defeated was SO SATISFYING because they're the WORST. Which is what makes a great villain in my book 👍🏻. Also, Ryder and Nessa had such amazing chemistry and I cried a lot through this whole book ❤😭 #romantsy

#riotgrams day 2! Where do I read? Well, mostly in my bed tbh but it's too messy for a picture right now so heres my second favorite place. The couch with some blankets and a nice Doctor who pillow. Sometimes there's a bit of competition since my roommate prefers the same corner but now that we have mostly opposite schedules, it works out.
