Fictfact says my next in series books to read are:
The Broken Kingdoms - N.K. Jemisin
The Blinding Knife - Brent Weeks
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs
Scarlet - Marissa Meyer
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop
The Fate of the Tearling: A Novel (Queen of the Tearling, The) - Erika Johansen
Raven Cursed - Faith Hunter
Archangel's Enigma (Guild Hunter) - Nalini Singh
Pocket Apocalypse: InCryptid, Book Four - Seanan McGuire

Fellow booklikers' posts (like http://bookstooge.booklikes.com/post/1543510/my-little-po-ahem-tbr ) reminded me to check.  Actual reading sequence of published books will more realistically vary by what becomes available at library and my moods, of course.

A totally O.K. follow-up to the Lunar Chronicles.
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate

So, in the months following Winter, life has progressed as one would expect -- Cinder has strengthened her position on the Moon, Scarlet's returned to the farm with Ze'ev Kesley, and Cress and the Captain are touring Earth. One of the loose strings that Meyer left hanging was the fate of the Lunar military troops all over Earth. They're still out there, causing trouble.

 

Cinder can't send any troops down -- in the aftermath of a failed invasion, the optics alone would be bad. But . . . she can send a single operative, and Iko nominates herself for that. She spends weeks taking out pack after pack, helping local authorities take them into custody.

 

But they're not just going to roll over, there are some that are preparing to strike back against Iko -- and Cinder.

 

Throw in a love story, an examination of Iko's true nature, and some nice catch-up with our old friends, and you've got yourself a fun story. It's fun, but it's light. If it were prose instead of a graphic novel, it might take 40 pages to tell this story. Which doesn't make it bad, just slight.

 

The art was . . . oh, I don't know -- cartoonish? Not in a bad way, but I see why some people I know weren't impressed. Once I got used to it (after about 30-40 pages), I even kind of liked it.

 

Basically, I'm saying that the book was okay -- I enjoyed it, but man, I wanted more. At the same time, I think it delivered everything that Meyer and Holgate were looking for, so I can't complain. Fans of the series may enjoy it, but it's not a must read. People who haven't read the books had best avoid it -- but should probably go back and read the novels.

Heartless
Heartless - Marissa Meyer

2 1/2 stars

This book started off beautifully. I loved the food, and the characters, and the strangeness of the world. It went downhill from the time of the mockturtle. I found that I couldn't understand how Cath, sweet, irritating and indecisive as she was, could turn so far as to become the nasty Queen of Hearts. Not without the man she loved--Jest--betraying her, which he did not. While at the end she certainly did act like the Queen of Hearts, there was far too much of a gap between the two personalities, without seeing her character growth (shrinking) into that role. I still am a fan of Marissa Meyer, but this wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be.

Reading progress update: I've read 30 out of 464 pages.
Heartless - Marissa Meyer

I'm not sure I have ever read an Alice in Wonderland retelling. This should be interesting. 

 

 

Also, Bucky thinks he's helping.

 

P.s. we have a new washing machine. The cleanup people come one Tuesday to fix the carpet. I got to go shopping last weekend with my bestie, and last night I placed a nice order from Book Outlet. So I'm trying to stay positive.

 

 

 

 

This is what I got from shopping last weekend. And last night I ordered the last of the Lunar Chronicles. It's been a rough couple of months. I'm hoping things improve.
