Playing Patience - Tabatha Vargo

Eh. Too many bad things happening to one character.

The Money Book for Freelancers, Part-Timers, and the Self-Employed: The only personal finance system for people with not-so-regular jobs - Denise Kiernan,Joseph D'Agnese

Excessive purportedly-illustrative anecdotes with occasional useful bits buried deep inside.

Tower of Dawn Book Review
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass) - Sarah J. Maas

3.5/5 stars. This might be my least favorite one yet. I enjoyed it but I didn't love it. I liked Chaol and Irene. I could care less about the other characters. It was different seeing this series in another perspective. I do feel like not a ton happened in this book. A lot of Chaol being hurt and trying to recover from his injury (which I don't mind). I think, at this point, I'm just ready for this series to finally end.

Fun spy-type story
Nick Fury (2017) #1 - James Robinson,ACO

But I'm not super into the spy stories.   While I got this free, I won't be continuing.  

 

Nick Fury's son - whom I've taken to calling Baby Fury, at least in my head - has to break into a casino, get intel on Hydra's monetary operations, and then get out.   Sounds simpler than it is, especially with the in-aptly named Agent Noble of Hydra finds out what Baby Fury is up to - and goes after him with all her guns.   All her huge, huge guns on her huge, huge boat. 

 

It is fun, and maybe if it were a full on satire of the spy genre, I'd be on board.   Instead, it's clever and fun, but because it doesn't try to be more than a spy story, I liked this but not enough to read issue two.   Or I follow the characters.   

 

Nick Fury has never been a character I felt drawn to, and this issue simply didn't change that for me.   Nothing poorly done, I just don't love the character because he doesn't tick any of my boxes. 

 

But I would highly recommend it to people who are into superhero spy stories.

Another Punisher freebie
Punisher: Dark Reign - Jerome Opeña,Rick Remender

I think they gave these away when they were starting to promote the new series?   Anyway, I finally got around to this, too, and I like it a lot.   It's a good, solid set up, and I know more, I think, about Dark Reign than Civil War.   Still, I don't see why the events have to seep into every single series...

 

I mean, I do, it's meant to get you to buy more series, and jump on board, but I do that for characters, and I'm not super into some of them, so that wasn't bond to work for me. 

 

Frank is running from a Superman type hero called Hyperion who's working for Osborne, who is evil but everyone thinks is doing good.   He's bleeding out, and barely makes it to his van, only for someone to tell him to run.   Can he make it to relative safety?
