Have You Hugged A Book Today?- April 2016

ReadingChallengeApril16

And I fall farther and farther behind on my reading… I really need to take a day off šŸ˜‰

Here’s the link to my star rating breakdown if anyone needs a refresher. It’s also up in the header šŸ™‚

  • What Iā€™m currently reading (in order of Date Started)
    1. The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King– I’m much closer to being done with this book than I was! For some reason it’s dragging for me, I don’t remember this happening last time I read it…
  • Books I’ve Finished (I did say comics to the rescue ;P)
    1. Jessica Jones: Alias Vol 3 by Brian Michael Bendis- Four Stars

Fog’s Book Of The Month

This month’s selection:

Jessica Jones: Alias, Vol. 4 (Alias, #4)Jessica Jones: Alias, Vol. 4 by Brian Michael Bendis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to say, the end of this comic run was not nearly as powerful for me as the Netflix series was. That’s not to say it’s bad (see the five star review), it was just different. I’m mainly keeping the five stars for the references to things that were not in the show, not for the Purple Man story line (hello epic 4th wall break! ;P). Like Jessica’s relationships with the people in her life: Carol, Scott, Quartermain, and Luke. If there is any way for us to see Quartermain in the next season, I would be 900% okay with this. I would also be 900% okay with a guest appearance by Scott Lang, but I’m gonna throw out a guess and say that’s a lot less likely to happen ;P Seeing Jessica’s different reactions to the different people in her life really made her experiences feel real and painful. Also, the wonderful extra reveal at the end of the book was very well done (even though I knew it was coming ;P).

I definitely don’t want to leave the world of Jessica Jones behind and I will definitely be picking up The Pulse next!

  • Book to Screen (Twitter live!tag-#fogwatches)
    • Still nothing. There will be something next time, I swear, I really AM gonna finish the Harry Potter movies…

I’m going to try to read more now that Camp NaNo is over, but that requires taking time off and I just don’t know when that’s going to happen, quite frankly. I’ll leave you with this hilarious comic that I found on the internet, because… um… yeah… ;P
