When Blindspot calls Daredevil to China
Daredevil (2015-) #26 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney

Matt knows it's a trap.   Foggy knows it's a trap and keeps reminding Matt of this fact.   But Blindspot lost his eyes, Matt feels guilty and so Daredevil goes. 

 

And of course, he immediately stumbles upon an old enemy and gets in a fight.   

 

Garney is back as illustrator, and I love his art, so, so much.

Big changes
Daredevil (2015-) #25 - Alec Morgan,Charles Soule,Ron Garney

Matt Murdock starts to make big changes for superhero - and all as Matt Murdock, DA, instead of as Daredevil. 

 

With his new ruling, criminals have a lot more to fear.   But there's more to this than that.   This is about the balance between life as Murdock and Daredevil, this is about reconnecting with Foggy and possibly mending that friendship, and this is about The Kingpin, and Tombstone, and setting up a new story and what will happen with at least one of those two. 

 

It's not often that someone out plots The Kingpin, but it's exciting to see it happen and I hope this comes to a  head - and soon.   

 

Still not loving the art, but it's just a style that doesn't mesh with me.   It's kinda a grotesque style - and that is what the style is called, not me making a judgement call on the art - and as such is technically proficient.   It's just not something I like in my DD comics, but the storyline made up for it and I was going to knock it down one-half stars for the art style and me not getting along - but I'm so psyched I'm reading anything, I'm being generous tonight!

Love, love, love
Transformers: Lost Light #11 - Jack Lawrence,James Lamar Roberts

Rodimus gets deposed and another, shittier captain takes charge of the Lost Light.   Poor ship can't seem to get a proper captain!  

 

I'm missing all my favorites, but their disappearance has been explained.   This is really just getting good, and it's only going on for one more issue, apparently.   But I'm really excited: it's knotty, it gets more twisted the more I read, and I"m seeing some characters come back that I'd forgotten about to be quite honest.   I'd gotten so caught up in everything else...

 

Anyway, looking forward to issue twelve when that comes out.

Currently Reading... and reading, and reading...

Books are my escapism. I love them. They are life. Except...

 

Book, Dream, Travel, Fantasy

 

I've been currently reading the same book for what feels like ages, well for the whole of December, so really only a couple weeks. It isn't as if I don't like the book. I have no idea why I procrastinate something I love so much! I go through spurts of reading 20+ books in a month, and then reading like 2 and sometimes nothing at all!

 

I recently found out some of my "quirks" come down to autism. Shocker. 33 and I'm only now finding out who I really am, or at least understanding more why I do things the way I do them. The more correct term would be ASD or Asperger Syndrome Disorder.

 

 

Silhouette, Man, Race, Run, Running Away, Panic, Fear

 

 

People can call me a special snowflake all they want. I finally have a term, or label (if you will) that helps me understand my head a little better. I did not get it officially told to me by a doctor, either.

 

Ice Crystal, Crystal, Snowflake, Christmas

 

 

First I got advice from a friend who has it and she gently told me to look more into it, because apparently aspies are really good at recognizing each other. What she did not know was that I had already been wondering about it and when she gave me this long message talking about her experiences and relating them to what she has seen me do, I just couldn't control the melt down I had while reading it.

 

Like I feel ashamed and broken, but rationally, I know there is nothing to be ashamed of and I'm not broken. It is just another part of me. One that 90% of people won't take seriously because I'm a grown woman, and I didn't get a "Doctor's Note."

 

This hardly has anything to do with books. I was wondering if non bookish blogs are fine, considering this blog site is called "booklikes"

 

Aspirations, Memories, Reminder, Contemplation, Women

 

Anyone else share non bookish stuff? Is that frowned on here? I sometimes have things I want to blurt to people and nobody to blurt them to.

 

Oh, I wanted to share my current saving grace is the La La Land soundtrack. I put that music on full blast when I am having "moments" where I want to ignore the world. Go see the movie and make the music your life!! All music is my saving grace, but I really love this soundtrack. I'm really into the music I grew up with, the 90s/early 00s, plus a few more modern things. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that some people are calling the 90s the oldies now.

Image result for la la land

 

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

I loved this series, Unknown (the series) is a new-adult apocalyptic trilogy.  Combining lovable, capable characters with a mysterious and well written end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it premise.  It freaking rocks.  It was only marred by the ending, where part of it played out entirely too much like a very well-known movie…but I still loved it.

 

Will I read more from this Author? Oh, yeah…totally will!
