Day 8 Funny - Is it Just Me? by Miranda Hart (and it is a shame she isn't more loved by folks in the US)

 

Day 7 Sad - The Mercy of the Sky by Holly Bailey (the part when she wrote of the rescue and recovery at the elementary school killed me)

 

Day 6 Time - Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson (a great middle grade book about a yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia)

 

Day 5 Place - The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow by Olivia Newport (Chicago during the World's Fair)

 

Day 4 Plans - my bedroom will be center stage for my reading - it is the only place I can get some quiet.

 

Day 3 Break - I plan on taking a break to sleep. A short catnip can give the reader a better recharge than drinking caffeine. I plan to get a few hours over the course of the read-a-thon.

Day 1 Stack - Books by Michael Lewis I have read and recommend:

                       Moneyball

                       Liar's Poker

A Tad Disappointed
Saga, Volume 7 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

I have to admit that Vol. 7 kind of fell flat for me. There were aspects I liked, such as the introduction of a new species/friends on one of the home planets which strongly resemble walking, talking merekats. I also enjoy seeing Hazel grow and mature. Marko and Alana are expecting a new baby, and the relationship between the two of them is stronger than ever. And I can't forget Lying Cat. He's still present and going strong. However, the entire time I was reading this I couldn't help but wonder if there is an ending planned for the series. I felt like some of the story lines are being drawn out too much and it just didn't hold my attention like some of the earlier volumes. I will continue on, especially since I'm able to grab these from my local library, but I look forward to some changes to shake things up.

 

I am using this for the "Free" slot on my 2017 Halloween Bingo because it has both aliens and monsters.

Review: Saga, Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 1 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

 

So I had problems with two previous books to fill this square, but luckily I remembered I had a stack of Saga volumes waiting to be read. From the get-go I had so much fun reading this first volume. I'm not one for kid narrators, but this story really works from the POV of Marko's and Alana's daughter. The artwork is fantastic and varied, the storyline involves some pretty deep commentary and topics while keeping the action going and giving us snarky bits that actually made me giggle. But it was the romance between Marko and Alana that kept me reading. I think I am going to knock out the other three volumes on my bookshelf for the Dewey.

Review: Paper Girls Vol 3
Paper Girls Volume 3 - Brian K Vaughan

Not as good as previous volumes, but it would be hard to keep up the same amazing, dynamite good times forever. And this issue is bad times all around, from the plight of the character in the local timeline, to the ill fated time traveler they meet along the way, bad things happen to every woman in this volume. 

 

And can we just stop publishing anything men have to say about women getting their periods? Like, forever? In general, it hasn't bothered me that all of the creative team on this book is men, but for that specific subplot, I do not have enough eye rolling to convey my disappointment.

 

Over at goodreads, karen wrote an extremely accurate response to reading this, and included some panels. Including a screen shot of one of the last pages, which left me super interested in the next volume even if I didn't love this.
