The Walking Dead-Robert Kirkman

I am a long time fan of The Walking Dead show, and yet I had only read the first three comics and then immediately forgot to keep going. Which is usually the case when I get over excited about another book and also needing to take a break from a series.

These were so fast paced that they genuinely surprised me even though I knew most of the plot. I had been going off past knowledge of the show when I went into these and a small recollection of what I had already read early on. But still, it caught me off guard.

Everything got crazy real fast. And it was like a bizarro world of ‘Wtf is happening?!” because some of the plot was definitely different from the show. (It would have to be.)

I did not care for Carol in the book. Which took me by surprise because I love love love her in the show.

And then just strange things were askew that it was hard to wrap my head around. (Hello Carol wanting to marry both Rick and Lori. What. Just whut.)

I can’t wait to read the next compendium because shit got crazy.

Definitely a good book, and the artwork was phenomenal in the beginning. Got a little mediocre near the end where I was like “Wait, who is that supposed to be??? Is that Laurie?? But it looks like Carol. But it also looks like Andrea.”

I was really glad when Maggie cut her hair.

Hope your Monday is starting out lovely.

Constant vigilance.

More Happy Than Not–Adam Silvera

Heya:

First off let me tell you why I haven’t written since the month began. I’ll keep it brief though: Snow days keep happening which leave no time for me to write during the day. Laptop broke. And I hate typing on the borrow iPad from my mother. Ta-da! But hey. Here we are and this book is ‘More Happy Than Not’.

This book was in my second OwlCrate delivery! And this book…THIS book. Oh my. It was so well written, such a beautiful story, and I loved what was happening, where it was heading, and what happened in the end.

Everyone needs to read this book because it was just so great. So great that I actually lent it to my sister in Vancouver because while I hate lending out my books now, this book needs to be read by one and all.
The book is about a boy named Aaron who is working through his fathers suicide and contemplating his own. He has the support of his mother and brother (to live I mean), but things aren’t going so well. His girlfriend is helping him and although she’s doing all she can, he finds solace in a new friend, Thomas, and no one is enjoying that he’s ditching everyone for him lately. Thomas just gets him though.

It’s a great book, and I refuse to tell you more than that but you NEED to read this.

So lovely.

Constant vigilance.

Happy New Year 

 
Happy New Year Puny Humans! I hope you all had a wonderful holidays season and are now ready for some seriously serious and awesome posts from yours truly. As always I have grand plans for the New Year. Starting with my Etsy store and ending with….well whatever happens at the end of 2016. DerangedLibrarian 

This week I went through the ever arduous task of updating my store and posting new things for the general publics enjoyment. Annoying because I’ve been working on my mothers iPad instead of my laptop because technology is currently rejecting me. So much so that I’ve even dropped my phone in the toilet this week. That’s never happened to me. And in the last six months I have broken the screen twice. And I haven’t had this phone for a year. Go figure. I miss indestructible flip phones. 

Anyway. Besides that I have been fighting bronchitis (Hello getting this for the third year running.) while also turning 29 on December 19th and deciding that I don’t want to enter my 30s the same way I entered my 20s. 

Alone. Barely there confidence. Hating my body while eating a poutine at the same time. 

Which brings me not to my New Years Resolutions but to my Birthday Fire Starter.  

This year I will help my body instead of hinder it. I will treat myself with love and respect. I will put myself out there in the dating world somehow at some point. I will keep my promises. Stop making excuses. Put in the time, work, and effort to things close to my heart. I will essentially set my life on fire. 

I will also read more and watch tv less. 

True story.
