Week in Reading: March 2

I'm flabbergasted at the whole it's-March-phenomenon, but even more flabbergasted by the it's-still-snowing-and-icing status in Maryland at the moment. Not cool, climate change. Not cool. The chilly temperatures meant I spent most of Friday night curled up with Orhan's Inheritance (April 7th, Algonquin Books). It's a powerful novel about the Armenian genocide that is haunting me in all the best ways that good books do.



After that, looking for something with a bit more comic relief, perhaps, I picked up Sex Criminals, Vol 1.--my first graphic novel of 2015 and a series rapidly moving to my list of most-loved comics. (Bonus: I discovered that Wonderbooks has a graphic novel section, so, winning!). That got me in the mood for more comics, so I'm finally getting to Saga Vol 4. this week.

Perhaps in my quest to continue with some lighter reading after Orhan's Inheritance, I'm also eying Adult Onset this week (April 14, Tin House), which promises "humor and unerring emotional accuracy." I'm also hoping to pick up the new collection of translated fairy tales from Penguin, The Turnip Princess, this week.

What are you reading this week?

  4. I'm halfway through Find Me, which I'm borderline "meh" about so far. I ended on a pretty big development, so I hope it's going to be more my style for the second half.

  5. Saga, Volume 4 wasn't my favourite volume, but still great. I've been meaning to check out Sex Criminals. I'll have to add that to my wishlist.

  6. I'm trying to get back into classics, so I'm currently reading (listening to) Peter Pan. I also just started listening to The Emerald Atlas.

  8. Agreed. I liked it, but liked the first three more. Sex Criminals is SO GOOD.

  9. Oh, that's too bad! I was caught up in it pretty early on. Hope it picks up for you soon, especially since you were looking forward to it.

  12. The narrator is great but I had forgotten what a annoying and frustrating character Peter Pan is (or I never noticed it when I heard the story as a kid).

  13. I cannot wait to read more of Saga! I've read the first volume and have the next three waiting on my shelf. I'm *trying* to hold off on them until the next readathon. It's not easy!


    Have a great week :D

  14. Yeah, I think I'm burnt out after this season of The Walking Dead. My least favorite arc has a similar setting to the first half of the book. I'm already much more invested heading into the second part of the book!

  15. Sex Criminals looks so good! I don't read a whole lot of graphic novels (I almost typed sex novels...both are true), but this one sounds great. I'm reading Sweetland now!

  16. Saga is so great! I thought the fourth volume was pretty wonderful and weird.

  17. I'm reading nothing! And it's so damn depressing because I want to, but I have brain power trying to catch up from last week's winter weather closures. Looks like we'll be closed again tomorrow for more crap ice.
