Dungeons and Dragons Art and Arcana: A Visual History | Michael Witwer, Kyle Newman, Jon Peterson, Sam Witwer
post image
Pickpick

Gave this a pick because of how beautiful the art was in this. Which is honestly the entire reason I picked this up. It was cool reading about the origins and history of D&D but the writing could be dry at times. Visually though it‘s stunning.

I am loving the art in this! Wish I could frame some of these pieces on my wall. Especially the art including the dragons 😁

Not sure how I feel about this yet. Seems to be more of an analytical collection of essays regarding haunted houses more so than a collection of stories about haunted places. It‘s not bad, just not what I was expecting. Something about the authors tone bugs me though...can‘t quite put my finger on it. Perhaps I‘ll enjoy section 2 better. Hard to go wrong with bars, restaurants and brothels 🤪

Sweettartlaura Aahhh, I loved this ❤️. Yes, it becomes more of an analysis of what haunts America. But I loved that turn - it elevates it beyond anecdotes about strange happenings. Hope you get there with it, too! 5d

The Black God's Drums | P. Djeli Clark

Pickpick

I LOVED this!! I wish there was more since this is only about 100 pages. Quick, engaging and entirely engrossing. I loved how much world building there was in such a short amount of time, the characters were well done and the plot was fast paced but not forced. Haitian sky pirates, alternate steampunk New Orleans set in the Civil War era, ancient Gods and.....Nuns?? What more could I ask for 😁

I went to the library to pick up one book. ONE BOOK. I walked out with all of these....clearly I am not to be trusted in a library. I'm not to be trusted when it comes to books in general, but especially not in a library 🙈

wanderinglynn That looks like a great trip to the library to me! 👍🏻😉 1w

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides
post image
Mehso-so

Overall enjoyable but didn't quite live up to the hype for me. The twist was good but it didn't pack the punch that I was hoping for/expecting from all the rave reviews I've seen. I thought the ending was a bit convenient and felt that if the final chapter and the final diary entry had been switched it would have wrapped up the story better. Quick and easy this was a good palette cleanser.

ReadingRover I totally agree. There was nothing amazing about it. I was taken aback by the twist for a second but there was no real climax. Meh. 2w
RainyDayReading @ReadingRover Exactly! It just sort of....ended. The closer I got to the end the more I began wondering when we were going to hit the climax and then we never did. The more I think back on it the more I find loose ends and the 'meh' feeling just grows. 1w
ReadingRover @RainyDayReading I know. I was underwhelmed. It was disappointing because I waited for weeks for the hold at the library and I thought it was going to be this amazing psychological thriller. 😕 1w

I do these things pretty casually. I read what I want and see if they match any of these challenges at the end of the month. Honestly there‘s more than I thought! I read:
2 Manga volumes
10 Graphic Novels
6 Novels:
-2 Non-Fiction
-2 YA
-2 Adult
My favorite was the tagged book. Overall I read 18 things which is far better than my 1-4 things of late 🙄

Contagion | Erin Bowman

Still mulling this one over. It was fast paced and suspenseful. But because of the pacing I didn‘t get to really care about any of the characters. So anything that happened to them didn‘t hit me as it was meant to. The writing was very info-dumpy and there were SO MANY dumb decisions made by “smart” people 😪 Overall it did what it was meant to. If you‘re a fan of viral thrillers set in space you might like this.

I loved this one! 5 boys go hunting in the woods, 4 boys walk out. All used the murder weapon, but who took the kill shot? It‘s fast paced, tense and addictive. I didn‘t hate the main character which is unusual in YA mystery. I wanted a little more from the ending, not in the solution, but more of a wrap up of the aftermath than the few pages there were. Went and got a copy to add to my collection, that‘s how much I loved it!

Loved this! Elena is a tough, smart, bi-sexual black woman making it as a journalist in 1972 in Detroit. But not only does she battle racism and sexism, but the supernatural as well. Loved the art and really enjoyed the story. I hope there‘s another volume!

Beautiful monochrome water color art with pops of blue color throughout. The story was poignant and heartbreaking (though I‘m heartless so it didn‘t get to me). A coming of age story, a comment on sexuality and a translated work. Some sentences were a little weird I think due to being translated from French to English but overall it‘s a sweet story. Though the main story telling is told in cursive handwriting which is hard to read at times.

This was waaay better than volume one. The art is vibrant and I enjoyed the peek into the lives of some of the girls. Some of the sequences toward the end were really hard to follow as to what happened first but other than that this volume renewed my faith in this series. If you‘re a fan of Sailor Moon, Fairy Tale and other magical girl series, I would give this a try.

I forgot how hard it is for me to read with dilated eyes 😪 It‘s already dark, gray and rainy here today. The sunglasses I have to wear certainly aren‘t making seeing any easier haha.

ravenlee Hope it gets better soon! I once had my eyes dilated in college, and after my mom dropped me back at my dorm (no car) I had to feel my way to the bathroom and take a shower with my eyes closed because the light was making me feel nauseated! 1mo
RainyDayReading @ravenlee That sounds awful!! Thankfully I don‘t feel too nauseated when my eyes get dilated, I just get awful headaches. It had been several years since I last had to deal with this so I had forgotten how frustrating functioning afterwards can be. 1mo

Backstagers Vol. 2 | James Tynion
post image
Pickpick

For some reason there‘s only Vol 2 in the database, not Vol 1. This is Vol 1. I LOVED this. But I‘m biased, having been a theatre gremlin all my life. This is a fun, fluffy story about a backstage crew at a high school that has some fantastical rooms (and creatures) backstage that they must keep in check. Beckett is my spirit animal and the art style is vivid. If you liked Nimona or Lumberjanes you‘d probably enjoy this too.

Am I confused and not sure I grasp what is going on? Yes.
Am I hooked on the characters and simply must continue on to find out just what the hell is going on? Definitely.
-Every 90 years, 12 Gods are brought back to life to be worshipped, idolized and hated. Two years later, they‘re all dead- that in a nutshell is all I know. Gorgeous art and I loved seeing the Gods being pulled from different mythologies.

What a lovely collection of writings about a at times morbid job. There are some descriptions in here that I would not recommend if you‘re weak stomached. But overall I read this quickly and wish I had more stories! It‘s an interesting look at death and how we think about it in our society and I have learned more than a thing or two from it. Looking forward to more of her work. She was right,Norse Mythology is the most metal 🤘🏻

SamAnne @RainyDayReading i really enjoyed this book too. And loved her interview on Fresh Air. In the same vein, I loathed most of Advice for Future Corpses by Sallie Tisdale. More about the process of dying. 1mo
RainyDayReading @SamAnne She‘s releasing a new book sometime soon. I‘ve been following her on Instagram and she‘s the kind of person I‘d love to be friends with. Glad I managed to get my hands on this one. 1mo

Read this in one sitting! Full of the characteristic Christie charm I have come to love and a twist I almost didn‘t see coming. Though everything clicked in place the page before the reveal 😅I can see why this one is heavily recommended. I thought the end could have been wrapped up quicker than it was but overall I really liked it! And Then There Were None is still my favorite though! 4🌟 -This is me getting caught up on reviews 😅

I must get myself a copy of this! Short but full of self care tips that you don‘t have to necessarily be a “witchy” person to use and appreciate. I love how it included recipes for food, bath salts and teas. If self-care and self-love are goals for you or just something you struggle with (like me) give this one a try. It could just give you the boost you need.

Made it 56% of the way through and I have no desire to pick it up so I‘m bailing on it for now. I may go back to it I may not. It‘s quirky and I enjoy how it takes the typical private investigator idea and turns it on it‘s head, but not really something I‘m meshing well with right now.

RamsFan1963 I didn't care for Cantero's Meddling Kids, so I was debating on trying this one. I think I'll pass. 2mo
RainyDayReading @RamsFan1963 I really enjoyed Meddling Kids for some reason. Maybe it‘s because I‘m a die hard Scooby Doo fan and its particular brand of weird suited me better than most. If you didn‘t like Meddling Kids, I would pass on this one. It‘s shorter but unmistakably Cantero. 1mo

Such an awesome giveaway @GondorGirl ! My first instinct was to say Rivendell/The Shire but I ALWAYS use those places as answers. So I‘m shaking it up a bit and choosing the location that enchanted me first (and the most) growing up which was Hogwarts. I love the magic, the creatures (I would totally be helping Hagrid every chance I got) but overall, I love how everyone can find a “home” at Hogwarts. #GiGiBookBox

Confusing. Not very suspenseful and I just kept waiting for it to be over. Interesting plot point towards the very end but otherwise it was very bland. Characters were flat, dialogue seemed to go in circles and honestly I was expecting more death. The synopsis was a bit misleading. I‘ll just stick to Agatha Christie for now.

monalyisha I lived in Salem for almost three years! I found all the witchy tourist destinations kind-of disappointing, tbh 😭. Maybe I expected too much. But if you ever visit & you need some food recommendations (pizza, ice cream, crepes, QUESO 😍🧀), I gotchu covered. 😉 3mo
darklydreaming Mine would be “The Calm Before the Storm” 😂 3mo
monalyisha I honestly don‘t even bother to think about this because a friend of mine already came up with the perfect title for her memoir & there‘s no beating it: “Always a Little Bit Hungry.” 3mo

Ordered something for my boyfriend for Valentine‘s Day so of course in order to get free shipping I had to get a little something for myself 😁

Well...we are snowed in...yet again. Going slightly stir crazy but I guess this means I get to read more? I don‘t have a way into town currently so @TheWordJar and @BookwormAHN I‘ll be delayed in sending things out to you even more than I anticipated. I promise I‘ll try to get something out soon though.

BookwormAHN No worries, stay warm 😺 3mo
TheWordJar Don‘t worry! I‘m in the same predicament! Is winter over yet??? 3mo

Currently reading on this snowy night.
What‘s ironic about it is that I bought this book because it sounded like a haunted house story. Yesterday I listened to an episode of And That‘s Why We Drink where they talked about the Borley Rectory and Harry Price. Guess what the haunted house in this book is? 😁 Completely coincidental but having some background knowledge on the rectory should be interesting while reading this...

jenniferajanes What a cool coincidence! I would find the book more interesting with some background too. Enjoy! 3mo
