May Reading Wrap-up

Good grief I read a lot of comics last month. I’d heard a lot about The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (by Ryan North) and it stood up to the hype! My favorite ongoing series is Lumberjanes (currently being written by Shannon Watters): I adore every single issue.

I READ SOME NONFICTION I DID A GREAT JOB. My favorite was My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead, which is partly autobiographical, partly George Eliot biography, and partly Middlemarch discussion. I want more books like this.

There were two fiction releases last month that I was Extreme Hyped for and that lived up to that hype: Thick As Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner and So You Want To Be A Robot And Other Stories by Merc Rustad. A+++!
