Flowers of Evil, Volume 3

Flowers of Evil, Volume 3 - Shuzo Oshimi Still dark and unique...and kinda messed up... and I still like it!

SuperMutant Magic Academy

SuperMutant Magic Academy - Jillian Tamaki It had some real gems...and was fun to read, but overall it's just teen angst and highschool drama. I liked J. Tamaki's "This One Summer" more.

Authority: A Novel

Authority: A Novel - Jeff VanderMeer I liked it as much as "Annihilation"!
Starting the third (Acceptance) today.

The Girl on the Train: A Novel

The Girl on the Train: A Novel - Paula Hawkins 3.5 stars

Love and Rockets, Vol. 1: Music for Mechanics

Love and Rockets, Vol. 1: Music for Mechanics - Gilbert Hernández, Jaime Hernández, Mario Hernández I read these in the late 1990's. I wasn't impressed then and I'm not impressed now. I don't understand the high marks for these books. I won't be reading any more from Gilbert Hernandez. Overated.

Out of Skin

Out of Skin - Emily Carroll I have completely enjoyed everything I have read and seen by Emily Carroll.

This can be read here:

The Plague

The Plague - Stuart Gilbert, Albert Camus I refuse to force myself to finish a book I find truly unenjoyable ...in Every sense of the word.

Off Course: A Novel

Off Course: A Novel - Michelle Huneven Very disappointing. Gave up 50 pages in.

The Marriage of Sticks

The Marriage of Sticks - Jonathan Carroll Meh. Kinda simplistic writing. Unimpressed. This is the second... or maybe third, J. Carroll book I've read or tried to read... I don't think I need try anymore.

Station Eleven

Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel I had trouble rating this book because I liked most all of it ... except the ending.

Sisters by a River

Sisters by a River - Barbara Comyns 3.5 Stars
Odd and entertaining. I can't decide if I like this book or not.

The Sixteenth of June: A Novel

The Sixteenth of June: A Novel - Maya Lang 3.5 Stars

Bunny Drop 7

Bunny Drop 7 - Yumi Unita, 宇仁田ゆみ 3.5 Stars.
The art has been consistently great. Simple, beautiful lines. Many, many facial expressions. All perfect.

Beautiful Darkness

Beautiful Darkness - 'Fabien Vehlmann',  'Kerascoët' 4.5 Stars
Unsettling… but in a good way. Gorgeous. Unique. Natural. True. I enjoyed every page!
I'll be hanging on to my copy so I can read again.

Through the Woods

Through the Woods - Emily Carroll 4.5 Stars

An Unnecessary Woman

An Unnecessary Woman - Rabih Alameddine Meh... 2.5 Stars.
