Exploration of a lifestyle choice – sexy and quite enjoyable
Swing Volume 1 - Linda Sejic,Matt Hawkins

 A couple marry and find that their life, especially their sex life, is becoming too ordinary and humdrum. They investigate the swinging lifestyle with mixed results at first. With scenes of a sexual nature, this volume is an easy read and a second volume is announced so that the plot can progress. The artwork is clear and enjoyable and I can recommend this to lovers of sex comics, especially if you enjoyed Sunstone.

Romance comic for the 21st century – quite good
Sugar #1 - Matt Hawkins,Jenni Cheung,Yishan Li

 

 

Julia is a waitress and student finding it hard to make ends meet. John is recently divorced and finding it hard to date. A chance meeting brings them together and this is the story of how their relationship develops. With scenes of a sexual nature, this volume is an easy read and, although a second volume is announced, the story seems complete. The artwork is clear and enjoyable and I can recommend this to lovers of romance comics.

Sugar: Volume 1
Sugar #1 - Matt Hawkins,Jenni Cheung,Yishan Li

I just didn't connect to this title the way I did to Sunstone or Swing - the storyline and characters lacked emotional punch for me. I think the real issue was that I didn't particularly like most of the characters. Several of the side characters are terrible people, and the main characters both felt very stock. Aptly named, this one can be a bit on the sweet and saccharine side. If you like the movie Pretty Woman this might be a big win for you. I will say that in the end I finally started to connect to Julia, so it must have been doing something right. All in all it was a mixed bag for me.

Into The Water - Paula Hawkins

Book Blurb:  Just days before her sister plunged to her death, Jules ignored her call. Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules must return to her sister’s house to care for her daughter, and to face the mystery of Nel’s death. But Jules is afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of this small town that is drowning in secrecy…

 

What I thought: Entertaining enough, but it didn’t have me turning pages and enthralled as Hawkins’s debut book. The story line is slow in the first half of the book, but picks the pace up in the second half.  I found Jules character’s wallowing in self-pity in the beginning overwhelming and there is too much anger in other characters. The ending was frustrating to me because Hawkins allows loose ends remain loose – as a reader I don’t particular like it. With the rest of the characters, I felt like the author placed dust sheets over their stories to wrap them up quickly. Overall, give it a go: it’s a quick summer read, but not for must-keep-in-my-library category.

Reading progress update: I've listened 60 out of 550 minutes.
Rebel Belle - Rachel Hawkins

Paladins. She's a paladin. I would like to go on record saying there are only 5 paladins I care for, 2 more than the rest.

 

 

 

Shiro is my heart and soul. Let's just be honest about that. But I also love Keith. And I ship Keith/Shiro/Sheith big time. 

 

Anyways, back to your regularly scheduled program.
