October 2019 reading round-up

reading at the pubNot my greatest month on the reading front. I blame lupus. I’m partway through two large books, but even so I only finished one full-sized book, plus three comic trade paperbacks. It’s a poor record and means my EU Reading Challenge hasn’t progressed at all. Probably not the best reason to be glad of another Article 50 extension, but yay! We’re still in the EU (for now).

Happy November.

Books read

Ms Marvel Vol. 10: Time and Again by G Willow Wilson and Nico Leon
The final stories about Kamala Khan by Wilson and her team, before handing over the reins to Saladin Ahmed and Minkyu Jung. This volume starts with a fun teenage tale of a slumber party that’s repeatedly interrupted by calls for Kamala’s alter ego. I continue to love this set of characters, and this slightly different take on the teen superhero.

Fire, Ice and Physics: the Science of Game of Thrones by Rebecca C Thompson
I reviewed this for work, so I won’t say too much here. It’s a fun, fascinating look at both the TV show and book series, analysing them from a physicist’s perspective. You don’t need to be a die-hard fan to enjoy this, but be warned: it’s full of spoilers.

Giant Days, Vol. 10 by John Allison and Max Sarin
Daisy, Esther and Susan are starting their final year of uni. Love lives, housing and career aspirations are more complicated than ever, but the friendships continue to be endearingly awesome.

Giant Days, Vol. 11 by John Allison and Max Sarin
Halloween and Christmas japes aplenty! This series recently ended in single issues, so even in trade paperbacks the end is in sight. Thankfully there’s still plenty of John Allison’s back catalogue online for me to dive back into.
