The Metamorphosis | Franz Kafka
Mehso-so

I loved Metamorphosis itself but I found the other stories to be a mixed bag. I enjoyed the Meditations for the most part and while The Penal Colony was gruesome I thought it was at least poignant. The others, particularly The Fasting Artist, were hard for me to get through. I found them too disjointed. Worth it for Metamorphosis though

I enjoyed this! Josie is a fun character and her arc in this makes a really nice point 😊

ReadingOver50 Looks good! Love Doctor Who 💜💜 3y
readsandramblings @ReadingOver50 You'd probably really enjoy this then! I like Doctor Who but i'm not a religious watcher and I found this to be a lot of fun! 3y

Getting so close! Though I'm pretty sure I'm cheating by counting all my books for my research and comics.

Super late but I'm hoping to get through my TBR this month but it's so hard with uni as well. I'll do my best!

This was good! I didn't love it as much as some other Doctor Strange comics I've read (e.g., The Oath) but I still enjoyed it enough to rate it a pick. It's enjoyable but it raises more questions than it answers in a way that was more frustrating than mysterious for me. Nonetheless I do want to continue to read this arc.

Read this story yesterday and oh my it is disturbing. It's about, essentially, punishment and justice in a colony just emerging from the clutches of despotism on the part of its colonial leaders. It's intellectually fascinating but ultimately unsettling and unpleasant.

I love all of these books of course, but this one I have a lot of respect for in that I think this is the one where Rowling really acknowledged that the readership was growing up with Harry. A welcome and lovely revisit for me.

Omg I loved this! All our favourite DC ladies in a 1940s setting and aesthetic! 😍😍😍 The story was really good too! Looking forward to the next volume

Enjoyed this! I'm always fascinated by Greek mythology and I liked how it was weaved into this. And let's be real, Wonder Woman is totally badass

I didn't enjoy this as much as I hoped I would. It's got a strong, complicated LGBT woman which was awesome and well handled. However, the story lost me at times, I found it kind of hard to get into and tbh there's only so much side boob art I can take before I'm wondering what the point is

This whole chapter when Hagrid is outed as being half-giant and has such a large crisis of confidence in himself is really powerful to me.

This is my first DC comic. I have no interest in choosing sides between DC and Marvel, I just want to read cool stories especially with kickass ladies. This did not disappoint. Barbara is really admirable in this. I'm not such a fan of so much narration but that's just personal preference

I love Hermione. I love that she gets so passionate about House Elves rights despite everyone telling her it's stupid. She is woefully ignorant about the whole situation really but she has the best of intentions. I guess I admire her compassion.

IndyHannaJones She's kind of a mean girl in the 6th one but what 16 year old doesn't have her moments? 4y
readsandramblings @Hyaeger completely agree! She's not perfect and she's not always right. I think it makes her relatable. At least to me ; 4y

Enjoyed this one a lot! Thor is totally badass! I'm so fascinated by who she really is, I can't wait to keep reading. The gender politics of Asgard/Asgardia is really interesting and I'd like to read more about that too. Also, Odin needs to chill.

This was great! The team ups were awesome and the story actually gave Deadpool some kind of emotional weight to carry which was surprising and refreshing. My favourite so far :)

It's probably more somewhere between pick and so-so but i'm rounding up. I liked the way it tied in with Infinity and those particular issues were really cool. I didn't quite understand Stark's point, Gamora was underserved and Angela is awesome but needs more clothes. Still fun though.

Had a really solid reading session tonight. I had forgotten how much the early part of this book makes me laugh. Excuse my dodgy Winter Soldier nails, my niece had a superhero themed party today and well, Bucky

covertocover Love the Harry Potter series! I always feel nostalgic while reading the books, but they never fail to impress me. Happy reading! 4y
