Cybertron comes back to Earth
Transformers: Robots In Disguise (2011-2016) Vol. 7 - John Barber,Sarah Stone,Livio Ramondelli,Andrew Griffith,Casey Coller

At least, Optimus Prime and a small group of Autobots do.  I wasn't a big fan at first read, but I'm coming to appreciate just how brilliant a move this was: the focus stays on the Cybertronians, not the humans, and even then?   Thundercracker adopting a dog and becoming the worst screenwriter ever is just hilarious. 


Somehow, even when he's mangling screenplays and writing in general, Thundercracker just wins me over.   Like completely over.   


Loved this, and read it early on in the month, right before the Hugo packet hit.

Downloaded the app
Transformers Robots in Disguise: Where Crown City Comes to Life - Caroline Rowlands

This is the first app-enabled VR book in the Transformers universe.   (That I can remember?   I've been running on anger and stress, and now it's depression so I'm just worn out and may not be an authority on anything right now?)


Anyway, I needed this after the shitshow that was my brother's wedding.   


I got drunk af to get through it, and witnessed some of the scariest things I've ever seen - that was all because my brother pushed someone into a corner.  


I deserve this.   My sister's home, but she's no longer talking to anyone in the family and isolates herself in her room, so it's like I'm alone.   


The newest season of Supernatural sucks, so I'm just gonna focus on this right now.   This book is pretty basic, but I'm hoping the VR aspect makes up for that.

Not really a review
Transformers: Robots In Disguise Volume 5 - John Barber,Livio Ramondelli,Atilio Rojo,Dheeraj Verma,Andrew Griffith

But, yeah, I reread this.   I'm loving it more this time around.   


Like how Ravage saves Soundwave, and Soundwave's dedication to his Decepticon brothers?   It's just touching me far more during this reread.

This arrived today
Transformers Robots in Disguise: The Trials of Optimus Prime - Steve Foxe,John Sazaklis

My sister: 'Huh, this is a Prime Add-On.   I need more things to get free shipping...'


Me: 'Ooooh, I want this book!'


So she got it, I paid her for it, and all is good with the world.   I'll start this once I finish Black Powder War.  I'm trying to read two books at a time*, and I want to read this.  It'll only take a couple hours, tops, so I can get back to Temeraire without any real delay!


*Not counting comics.   Graphic novels, however, are included.   When I don't have access to physical books, I'm allowing myself to indulge in e-books.   And limiting myself to two books may not work for me...

Boy, these are short and quick reads
Transformers Robots in Disguise: Autobot World Tour - Steve Foxe

Cute, fun, more in character than the last.   I had enough fun reading this, I'm willing to invest in and read more, if only because there isn't as much Transformers prose for adults. And sometimes, a girl just needs her bots. 


It really helps that I adore both Grimlock and Windblade. While this was split between two teams, and I could have been bored if they were both on one team - I would have wanted to get back to that team and resented not being with my two favorites - but they were on separate teams.   The teams seemed balanced and to have put the characters that work best together, too. 


Bumblebee, Strongarm and Grimlock on one team while Windblade, Sideswipe, an injured Optimus Prime and Drift and his two minibots - Slipstream and Jetstorm - were the other team.   Two different missions that didn't intersect, and yet this book played both stories out nicely, using one and then the other and a minor incident at the end that almost tied them together.   (But didn't really.)


This will be my read on vacation book for summer bingo since I don't really take vacations other than weekends at the summer house my parents own.   That counts, right?
