Started this last night and holy crap. Meaghan has already claimed next, but, like, line up for this.
Delightful as always
Addicted to the Bridgerton books for enjoyable escapism right now and anxiously awaiting the reprints of the next few...
Started The Hearing Trumpet (Carrington is one of the most important American artists of the early 20th-mid 20th centuries that few people seem to know about)
I'm currently reading The Chose ad the Beautiful by Nghi Vo, which is Great Gatsby with magic, and it manages to both retain the tone and atmosphere of the original while making the characters actually compelling and being much better written. I'm very in love with it
ArkhaManiacs on the other hand is exactly as delightful as anticipated Art & Franco are great. There was nothing really Animaniacs related though which was a disappointment. Still REALLY FUN
Also started Adventureman which I have not decided how I feel about yet. Dodson art is SO PRETTY but also it’s really hard to tell the women apart. I like it enough to finish reading the miniseries at least!
still reading a gazillion comics. Strange Academy was fun weird magic school stuff a lot like Gotham Academy or SuperMutant Magic Academy (though not as weird as that one just a similar tone)
Just finished Permafrost (thanks, Josh) and wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be, but I really appreciate the translator’s essay in the back of the book:
Julia Sanches (the translator) says this, “Would people still enter a translated text with as much suspicion if we called our little art something like “versioning” or “againing”?” I really like both “versioning” and “againing” as they challenge ideas of a single story and leave room for the reader.
I'm reading The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics right now and I'm loving it. It's a queer lady 1800s science-y romance
Also enjoying listening to Amulet of Samarkand as I do shipping. Ah nostalgia!
I finally caught up (mostly) on my x comics with x of swords and I agree with Caleb that it is some good superhero nonsense and I’m excited about comics again
about done with The Quantum Thief, cuz Josh told me to
