Reading progress update: I've read 208 out of 208 pages.
Gotham High - Melissa de la Cruz,Thomas Pitilli

And after the one scene over halfway through the book where Alfred suddenly introduced his husband who had never been mentioned before, the husband disappeared again with no explanation and was never mentioned again. In the one scene he was in, he had one bubble of dialogue where he spoke two sentences. I don't know why Alfred and his husband don't live together or why the guy has zero interaction with Bruce, his nephew, even though Alfred is Bruce's legal guardian. I feel like he existed solely so the author could say her Alfred was gay and then once that was accomplished, he was no longer needed, so he was forgotten.

So this version has Alfred as Bruce's uncle instead of butler. That was an interesting change that I didn't mind, although I didn't like the fact that right after Bruce's parents died, Alfred shipped him off to boarding school. The book started with Bruce's return from boarding school, so we've seen multiple scenes of Alfred and Bruce living together now.

 

So imagine my surprise when we suddenly learn over halfway through that Alfred is married. Where has his husband been living all this time? Because it's not been in the same house as them. And where was he that he didn't visit his nephew who was suddenly hospitalized for almost a day earlier in the book? Bruce's dead parents and Selina's dead mother have been mentioned more than Alfred's very-much-alive spouse (that I had no clue existed until he appeared on page) even though Alfred and Bruce live together and Alfred has gotten multiple scenes. It just seems weird.

So a kid has been kidnapped from the high school and the principal is the one questioning potential witnesses instead of the police who are assigned to the case? I know the GCPD is typically corrupt, but do the cops there not even pretend to do their jobs in this universe?

DNF: Renegades
Renegades - Marissa Meyer

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Calling it quits on this one. It's been several months since I last picked it up, I read a few pages and am just not interested. Superheroes are not my favourite thing, but it's an author I love and I have enjoyed superhero themed books before and this one is all original characters. So it sounded like something I would enjoy. Heroes vs villains and a POV from each, with the main POV seeming to be from the girl who's on the bad guys team. With a dangerous power and someone no one seems to know much about.

 

There's a little bit of world building but no real character introductions. There's a list various superheroes before the story starts - names, powers, aliases and what team they're on. So when the story starts going you're supposed to know who they all are.

 

Personally I never bother with character lists when they're at the front of books. I want to be  introduced to who the main people are as the plot progresses - not thrown in at the deep end. So having to go back to the list and flip through even after reading it thoroughly a few times, it was still really  confusing and annoying. 

I wasn't connecting with the characters and the thought of picking this one up again became less and less appealing especially with it being quite a long novel. So time to call it quits.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Pan Macmillan for approving my request to view the title.

Things you need to watch out for when buying a costume

 

Sizing is the biggest issue when it comes to choosing Halloween costumes such as buying fancy dress costumes online in Australia.

Make sure every family member is happy with the design you choose for them. You can consult them before buying the costume to avoid disappointments.
