Last month I only bought comics, and one preorder book arrived. Other books were free Kindle classics or books from the library. I’m trying to curb my book buying, and focus on the ones on my shelves!
Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens by Meredith Gran
Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
Gore – Honour and Brains by Miisa Lopperi
I visited the Helsinki Comics Festival in September, and bought two comic books. I’d been hearing very good things about Saga, and Gore was an interesting-looking self-published fantasy comic from a Finnish artist. It turned out to be well-drawn and a lot of fun, with solid characterization. I haven’t read Saga yet. My sister brought me the Adventure Time comic from her visit to London.
My friend lent me her copy of the final volume in the Immortal Beloved series. I really liked the second book, so I hope I enjoy this one, as well! The other books are from the library, a crime novel from J.K. Rowling writing under a pen name, and hard science fiction from a Finnish author.
The four books pictured above were free ebooks from Amazon. Gehrman’s book was free as a special deal, and the rest are free classics. I also downloaded The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft (all of his works are public domain) from Cthulhu Chick’s web site. She’s done so much work compiling the book by herself, it’s amazing!
