I’m Back!

Uhhhhh so it’s been a while… Sorry about that! I haven’t done much reading for a while due to my A Level exams and a lot of stuff going on in my personal life, but I’m hoping to be more active again now.

This is just a quick post to apologise for my impromtu hiatus, but here’s a quick summary of the books I’m currently reading:

 This is one of the collections of H.G. Wells’ stories, including War of the WorldsThe Time MachineThe Invisible Man, and several more. The stories are all fantastic, and I’m currently on The First Men in the Moon which I am enjoying immensely. I would definitely recommend this to any sci-fi fans! My favourite story of the collection so far is The Time Machine. I’ve been wanting to read Wells’ work for such a long time, and I was so glad when I was given this book as a gift.

 

I received an e-copy of this book from NetGalley in return for my review, and I’ve been trying to read it for months now. I’m really enjoying it, but I just keep getting distracted. It’s a really interesting book so far though, and I’ve heard so much about it from other bloggers and also friends from school. I’m planning to just sit down and get it read ASAP.

 

 

This book was given to me as a sort of joke by my now-ex-boyfriend. I’m not going to say too much about it for now, but basically Brett Keane is a YouTuber that a group of podcasters, originally called the Drunken Peasants, liked to *ahem* joke about a lot. He published a trilogy of books, with EUL being the first in the series. It. Is. AWFUL. The grammar is horrendous, the font and layout is terrible, the characters are ridiculous… It’s a mess. It was the focus of many DP jokes, hence why my ex heard about it and bought it for me. It’s so painful to read. I’ve been reading it for several months now and am so tempted to just chuck it away, it’s THAT bad.

I received an e-copy of this book in return for my review from the website OnlineBookClub.org. I haven’t read much of it yet – at all – but it seems to be a rather epic fantasy, with a lot of jumping acros the timeline. There is a note from the author at the start of the books suggesting readers pay close attention to the dates throughout the book in order to avoid confusion. Like I said, I haven’t read that much yet, but I’ve already found the importance of these dates.

 

So that’s it for now. Sorry again for disappearing, and thank you for reading this. I hope to be back and blogging again now, and I have a ton of great books due for review!

Graphic Novel/Comic Book Review: Adventures of Superman Volume One

18373330

Adventures of Superman (Volume 2, #1) by Jeff Parker, Jeff Lemire, Justin Jordan and others – Paperback, 168 pages – Published April 22nd 2014 by DC Comics

 

This is a collection of standalone comics featuring the Man of Steel. Lex Luthor stars in several, as well as Bizarro, Lois Lane and many other infamous characters.

One comic includes Metropolis in a bottle, while another requires Superman’s help with a child that has been moved across the timeline. In one, Lex even reveals plans to run for US president.

There’s a great undercurrent of humour in many of these, and several comics give an insight to the day-to-day lives of different characters. The final episode in this volume is possibly my favourite – featuring fans of Superman who require his assistance. I thought this story was so clever, and pretty emotional, too.

This is very nearly in my favourite books list. Each story is so interesting and unique. 4.5 stars.
