#Fridayreads Today I'm reading a novella that's blowing my mind: BLANKY by @KealanBurke I'm still making my way through THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP, edited by Ellen Datlow. I'm still reading SAGA Volume 3 and lastly, I'm listening to MYSTERY WALK by @RobertMcCammon McCammon. pic.twitter.com/fwDYhJQWCe— Char's Horror Corner (@Charrlygirl) March 16, 2018
This story keeps getting better! No loving Marko's mom, but he father is a doll. And of course Marko has a crazy ex who just doesn't understand, 'he's just not that into you". And I really like Lying Cat, because, cat!
I'm really enjoying the artwork and the way the story flashes back to the past, and the present goes between different groups. Our protagonists are in some serious crap! Clearly their baby is the first step to ending a years-long war, and there's always someone who doesn't want the war to end. Can't wait to see what happens!
This one-off series centres around a haulage company that deals with “unusual” or illegal cargo. Circumstances arise which bring Trace, a driver, to the fore. Betrayal, bloodshed, death, destruction and the supernatural then follow ( not necessarily in that order ).
Not for the squeamish, this collection should please most comic readers. Flashbacks give us insight into the main characters and it’s quite clearly illustrated (with plenty of red for obvious reasons).
This was a fun read (listen), with just the right balance of adventure, fantasy and moral. It is listed on Amazon as suitable for age 6 to 18, though I doubt most eighteen year-olds would choose it.
Konrad is only 8 years old and keeps getting picked on by Philip and his gang from Grade 5. When he finds himself outside the headmaster's office for being late, a series of events leaves him in possession of a wonderful pair of magic sunglasses. He discovers that these allow him to stare into a painting and manipulate things from afar.
Konrad finds himself on an unexpected adventure as a result of the sunglasses, which also allow him to enter a painting.
The descriptions of life inside a painting were fabulous, complete with brushstrokes and an alternative reality.
Could these sunglasses allow Konrad to sort out the school bully once and for all?
I enjoyed the narrator, Amy Vance, though she could have put a little more excitement in her voice, given that her target audience is children.
As yet my grandchildren are too young, but I look forward to sharing this audiobook with them in a few years.
