Setting this aside.

The Return Journey - Maeve Binchy 
The Return Journey - Maeve Binchy

Adventures of the timid. Bunch does a thing where two people meet, strike up an immediate friendship, and proceed to give one another excellent advice about managing their lives. She does that here,and it is really good, pragmatic advice. Anyway, stories about middle class adults and their working class parents, with some affairs included to keep things dramatic, to amusing effect in Excitement. And no one else has done a better job of portraying just how tiring it can be to be a modern woman trying to keep everyone else happy.

Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West
Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West (Rebirth) - Dan Abnett,Brett Booth

This didn't really feel like a good point to jump on if you're not familiar with Wally West. Although the name suggests this is a team book, this first volume is really all about Wally with the other Titans as supporting characters. Wally has reappeared after being stuck outside of time and everyone in his life forgetting about his existence. He is able to get his former team to remember him, but is unable to do the same for his former wife, Linda Park. Most of the book has the Titans trying to discover what exactly happened to Wally.

 

Wally's my favorite Flash (thanks in large part to the Justice League show), so I was happy to have him back in action, but I haven't really read much that featured Linda, so all the scenes about how much he missed her fell flat for me because I just didn't have any emotional connection to the two of them as a couple. His scenes with his friends worked much better for me because I'd read plenty of stories of them as a team. I'm not just how everything would work for someone new coming in because a good chunk of the story relied on nostalgia. However, the ending gives me hope that the story will be moving away from looking wistfully back at the past and instead focus on moving everyone forward.

 

It was great seeing the Titans back together, but I need more than nostalgia to keep me interested in the story. I'll definitely be checking out the next volume to see if we'll be getting a true Titans series that spreads the focus across the entire team.

THE RETURN OF THE EARL by Sandra Schwab
The Return of the Earl - Sandra Schwab
  M/M romance of the new Earl and his stablemaster. They have not seen each other in 7 years as the new Earl was banished from his home by his father for the relationship between the two men. The old Earl is dead and the new Earl finally comes home. He is angry and bitter and wrong in his thoughts.

I liked Bryn, the stablemaster. Con, the Earl, I had problems with. He was a brooder. Too much of the story was Con's brooding and kicking himself for what he believed. He did not believe that the people who lived on his estate and the servants in his employ were happy to see him. Once Bryn was able to get Con to see it differently then the story lightened up and got better. Unfortunately, there was not much story left by then. I would rather have seen more Bryn and Con loving then Con angry and punishing.
