Bleaker Island, by Nell Stevens
Bleaker House: Chasing My Novel to the End of the World - Nell Stevens

Going to the ends of the earth (in this case, the Falklands) to write a novel in isolation, with no distractions, sounded like the kind of thing I might do (except for the novel part), which is why I was interested in reading Bleaker Island. Despite a charming start and some genuinely laugh out loud moments, I wasn't consistently invested in Stevens's account of her writing (and romantic) life. I don't read many contemporary memoirs because they can feel self-indulgent, and there's been such a boom in them that it makes me wonder whose lives warrant a whole book. Though Stevens is, in the end, self-aware about her self-indulgence, it doesn't make the book more appealing to me. 


In addition, I didn't understand why she included a few of her short stories. The novel excerpts made more sense, though I felt they might have been integrated better, perhaps in smaller chunks?

Still in it for Prince Robot
Saga, Volume 6 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

And I don't care; I'm shameless about it.   I love him the most and I'm in it for him - still.   I resent when the story veers away from him, even though it's really mostly not about him.   I don't care. 


I would read the shit out of a Prince Robot IV series, though!

Prince Robot IV
Saga Book One: Deluxe Edition - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

I am 100% in this for Prince Robot, and if he dies, I will be out so quickly it'll make everyone's head spin. 


I mean, yes, this has everything else.   It's the most wonderful series for all the reasons - but I tend to obsess over one thing. 


Prince Robot IV.   He's pretty much all I care about in this series.
