Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was characters I’d switch places with – which, just so you know, was really hard! I mostly ended up deciding that these characters had a not-so-difficult arc, existed in a world I found tolerable, and whose end justified the means. Onward!
I read four books last month!
- Giant Days, vol. 7 by John Allison
- Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen
- What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
- You Know You Want This: “Cat Person” and Other Stories by Kristen Roupenian

So, what did I actually read?
On the list…
- Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

- Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture by Roxane Gay
- What Should Be Wild by Julia Fine
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
Not on the list…
- Ask Me About My Uterus: A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women’s Pain by Abby Norman

What I missed…
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
- Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen
- The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

- Lumberjanes, Vol. 8: Stone Cold by Shannon Watters
All in all, I didn’t do a terrible job – I read eight books out of a planned ten, but I only read 50% of those I actually wanted to read. (Isn’t that life??) Did any of you have a spring TBR? Did you stick to it? Let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. (JK, it was a freebie!)
I had originally planned to make a Five Favorite post about graphic novels… then realized I had read more comics than graphic novels… then thought I should do a FF on TBR graphic novels… and then had so many that I didn’t want to limit myself to just five! So, in no particular order, here are ten graphic novels and comics I am itching to read (hopefully in 2016!).
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
Bitch Planet, vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro
Captain America: Winter Soldier, vol. 1 by Ed Brubaker
Filmish: A Graphic Journey Through Film by Edward Ross
Giant Days, vol. 1 by John Allison
Lady Killer by Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Soppy: A Love Story by Philippa Rice
Trashed by Derf Backderf

I’m getting a little bit better at knowing about new releases – thank you, library job – but I still don’t know about a lot (hence my shortened list!). As to me actually reading any of these next year… well, that’s an entirely different story!
