What are you currently reading?
I'm still reading both Miss Peregrin's Home for Peculiar Children
and The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory
. I'm about 3/4 of the way done with Miss Peregrine's and a third of the way done with History of Forgetting. I've actually been picking up the latter more often this week, but it's just slower going in general. What did you recently finish reading?
I finally finished the final volume of Y: The Last Man
. Overall, I enjoyed the series, though it's not something I'd read again. And I was pretty bummed by ( spoilers )
I read volume one of Giant Days
by John Allison, a cute slice-of-life comic about three girls at university. I've read a bit of his webcomic Bad Machinery (that's where this icon is from) but got frustrated with webcomics and stopped reading all the ones I was following, so I never read the whole thing.Sawtelle: West Los Angeles's Japantown
turned out to be a much quicker read than I was expecting when I ordered it, as I didn't realize how little text there was to go along with the pictures (one full page of text at the start of each of the five chapters, plus captions on the photos). I enjoyed this as a look at local history, but it really made me want to read something more in-depth.
I also finished up Ella of All-of-a-Kind Family
. I was worried it was going to focus entirely on Ella based on the title, but while there was more focus on her than there had been in past books, there were still chapters about other family members as well. What do you think you'll read next?
I still have not actually started Are You My Mother?
, and I also picked up another library book on Monday, too. We saw the preview for the upcoming Wrinkle in Time movie and that made me want to reread the book
. I think I read it more than once as a kid, but it's probably been like thirty years or more, so I remember virtually nothing about it.
