review SPOILER ALERT! 2015-09-17 20:07
Gunnerkkrigg Court 5
Gunnerkrigg Court Vol. 5 Refine - Thomas Siddell

5 Stars, Buy it



Self Purchase, Hardback edition

 

Yeay! In the first chapter, Kat agrees to go on a date with a girl. WHOO HOO!!  The rest of the chapter I found a little confusing. But after I read it a few times I finally figured out what was going on. In the second part, Reynard is up to no go with someone named Hetty. In part 3 or chapter 44- Annie talks with Ysengrim and they go to some ruins. At this point I stopped taking notes and reading this dragged out to a few weeks so I can’t remember everything that happened.

 

I was afraid that this volume wouldn’t be as good as the previous volumes, but I was pleasantly surprised. I’m ecstatic that Kat’s character is finally going to be able to explore her sexuality no matter what it ends up being.  I absolutely adore this series. It kills me I’ll porobably have to wait another year for the next book.  Highly recommend this series if you like young adult fantasy graphic novels



Description (Amazon): The fifth volume in the ever-popular Gunnerkrigg Court series, based on Tom Siddell's hit webcomic!

 

Return to Gunnerkrigg Court with Antimony Carver and her friends as they delve deeper into the mysteries of their school and the first that surrounds it. Filled with magical creatures and fascinating secrets, the forest offers more mysteries then answers as Antimony continues her journey through the school -- alongside robots, a mythical creature or two and the occasional body-snatching demon!

A Shiver of Light
A Shiver of Light - Laurell K. Hamilton

3 Stars, borrow it.

 

Self Purchase, Kindle Edition

 

This book is slow moving. Parts are very repetitive of other books. However, that being said, I’m still curious to know what is going on with everyone.  At the beginning of the book, Meredith gives birth and we are introduced to the children. It takes too many chapters for them to get out of the hospital though. The plot is almost non existent. Basically Meredith and her men move from room to room through the mansion and in each room some minor thing happens.   Finally, at the end (almost literally at 90%) a HUGE thing happens (which i won’t ruin for you) that makes it worth finishing the book.

 

Normally, I give books I like either 4 or 5’s. I don’t give as many 3’s because if I don’t really like a book, I tend not to finish it.  This is one of those rare cases in which I finished a rated 3 book, because I loved the series at first and really wanted to know what happens with the character.  It’s worth reading if you like  the series but Laurell K. Hamilton is definitely trying way too hard to churn out as many books as she can.  I was pretty disappointed with this book up until the end, but even with that drama, it couldn’t raise the rating.

Lazarus #19
Lazarus #19 - Greg Rucka

4 Stars, Buy it

 

Self Purchase, Comixology

 

SPOILERS

 

Forever appears to be dead. And of course then she isn’t. (I don’t see how the comic would be able to go on without her really so I’m not terribly surprised). But this issue mainly deals with Forever, with a little of other side stories going on.  This is a good issue but not as crazy good as the previous issue but definitely still worth having.

 

Description: "POISON," Part Three.  One bullet makes all the difference.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
Lair of Dreams - Libba Bray
Lair of Dreams picks up a short time after The Diviners end. Evie is know known as the Sweetheart Seer and has her own radio show. Sam and Jericho are doing everything they can to keep the museum open while dealing with their own Diviner issues. Henry finds out there is at least one other Dream walker out there. Theta worries her nightmares from the past may burn her future.
 
Lair of Dreams was somehow even better then The Diviners. One or two new characters are introduced and fit right in with the already existing ones. I really didn't care for Evie's character for most of this book. Towards the end, you see a glimpse of the old Evie and you get why she acts the way she does for most of the beginning. I still didn't care much for her thoughtlessness, but at least there is a explanation. I'm glad she wasn't the main focus in this title. There wasn't really a main character in Lair of Dreams and I absolutely loved that. Each character has a equal amount of time. This allows each character the time they really needed to grow. The writing and the story are absolutely superb. I liked the ghost story a lot more then Naughty John. I really, really hope it doesn't take another three years for the next Diviners title.

Which booksite will be first to get series tracking features like "next in series"?

I've been really wanting this for years.  Really hoping would come to booklikes, goodreads or Leafmarks (and that Leafmarks said was coming had me really slaving over series edits on their site).  Guess who got there first?

 

Amazon.  *sigh* retailer Amazon.  More than a week ago added "Get next in series" to kindle devices. Two taps finish; diesn't even drag you to kindle store or show a bunch of promotional junk.    (It's been boiling at me a while but just now posting).  Of course, being Amazon in the same update they added a ton of ways to choose books for you and your children (plus I-click purchasing directly from goodreads integration's book pages).  Doesn't change the fact they added the much wanted feature.  (Not to goodreads itself of course.)

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy tracking my series on fictfact.com and they have wonderful features.  But they are series only.  No standalone books, no reviews (bare ratings possible), no social, no feed, no activities. Still — works great for series.  At this point, I think bringing social and reviewing there would just cause them spam, troll and reviewer attacking issues.  It's just not the site for cataloging all my reads or doing book activities—but Icannot fangirl enough over how great they are for series tracking.

 

Leafmarks, to the best of my knowledge, is still the only site showing series information when you backup/export your data.  (Not that I've figured out how to get data exported from booklikes where I could test if their file contained.)
