Reading progress update: I've listened 461 out of 461 minutes.
Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas (Audible Audio) - Wil Wheaton,John Scalzi

My head hurts from trying not to cry over this book while listening to it at work, even though I already knew what would happen. Pff.

 

The idea that

the actors and their characters would have such a deep connection

(spoiler show)

still bugs me, though.

Hot Steamy Glasses (Yaoi) - Tatsumi Kaiya

Well, that was disappointing. It gets points for having a few entertaining characters, and I liked that the best characters in the volume, Shogo (Fumi's brother) and Reiko (the secretary), ended up together, even though their relationship made no sense. Then again, very little in this made sense.

 

I don't think "not rape-y" is too much to ask, and yet even this volume couldn't quite manage it.

Hot Steamy Glasses (Yaoi) - Tatsumi Kaiya

Oh geez, I think Takeo and Fumi really are going to end up together. I was hoping Takeo would end up with Fumi's younger brother, who's nice and thinks Takeo is fine the way he is (aside from his inadvisable crush on Fumi).

 

Anyway, best convo yet, even though I'm a bit irked at the situation that led to it. Read the panel from right to left. For context, Fumi has the flu and Takeo was taking care of him. Takeo had to go to work, so he sent a secretary from his company to take care of Fumi (because Takeo's the CEO and the secretary has nothing better to do with her time *snort*). The first bubble is the secretary and the next one is Fumi. One thousand points to the secretary for not letting Fumi step on her and for establishing clear boundaries.

I'm guessing on the page number.

 

I picked this up a while back because some reviewer said it was sweet, which I hoped meant that it was also non-rapey. The artwork isn't really to my taste, but so far it has some good lines.

 

 

 

I'm pretty sure the guy Takeo ends up with is not the guy he's initially in love with, because otherwise I don't see how the word "sweet" could ever be applied to this. Fumi sucks, and Takeo shouldn't have to remake himself from the ground up to win his affection and approval.

The Bishop's Pawn (A Marc Edwards Mystery Book 7) - Don Gutteridge

Finished! It was okay, but the politics was a slog and the book really, really wasn't intended for newbies to the series. I'm pretty sure there were references to at least two or three previous books: one involving Marc Edwards' wife's first husband's murder, one that introduced this book's murder victim, and one featuring Marc's reunion with his mother.

 

Oh, and Cobb was a moron. Everyone kept talking about how he needed to learn tact, but his real problem was his habit of telling potential suspects everything.

 

Anyway, I can now mark the Murder Most Foul square.
