I tend to read several at a time. A little from one, some from another, etc:
Terminal Man (Michael Chrichton)
In Deaths Ground (David Weber)
rocket ranch- the nuts and bolts of the apollo moon program at kennedy space center (jonathan h. ward)
various DC comics (especially books when they had Cassandra Cain as Batgirl)
The Boss, from a blogger who writes snarky stuff about terrible books. It was fun, the sex scene were pretty hot, but too long and overdone. I like orgasms as much as the next person, but 8 each scene feels a bit excessive.
Not sure if I should vount this, since its so short, but it was a decent introduction to the author. Going to start her full length novel once I finish the other full length one I have been working on.
In An Absent Dream, by Seanan McGuire. It’s the fourth of her Wayward Children books and, like the other three, is so good that I can barely bring myself to read it because if I do I’ll finish it and then there won’t be any more of it.
Please tell me I’m not the only one to react that way to exquisitely perfect stories.
I'm mostly a comic reader these days due to short amounts of free time...also because I love comics. >,>
Series so far that I've been enjoying most:
Fantastic Four (The reboot has been stellar so far)
Young Justice (1st issue came out last week but has me on board right off)
Justice League Dark
Daredevil (Always been my favorite and his current run is just absurdly good)
Wonder Woman (Never read her books in my entire life until recently, started at her current run, issue 50...some good shit. She's not insufferable like she used to be)
Uncanny X-Men (12 issues in I believe in the new run, slow burn at first but has kicked off and I'm hooked)
ALIAS GRACE. Brace yourself, this is Margaret Atwood. Even the nicest man, the one who literally saves a woman's life, has some nastiness in him (in this I think of Karine Giébel). But the women are bad too, older women especially, making sure the system endures for the new generation sometimes more than men. I did sometimes felt it was too much, too tragic, too gloomy, too hateful. The feelings and characters' analyses are incredibly well done and intelligent. The ending... I didn't expect it. And I generally guess them.
In the world of mangas, I'm still keeping up with One Piece and Dragon Ball Super.
When it comes to literature, I recently went back and re-read The Farseer Trilogy, the first one. Great book if you love long in-depth stories based in a gritty fantasy. There's also Oryx & Craig (M. Atwood) which, the more I'm reading it now, the more I realize just where we're heading as a species. Great trilogies, both of them.
A friend insisted I haaaave to read Max by Sarah Cohen-Scali. It's basically everything you did NOT want to know about the Lebensborn. From the point of view of a disturbed kid. I actually didn't have it in me to read the whole thing. Trigger warning on basically everything and basically everyone lol
