I saw Pretty Deadly at work and decided to take it out and read it. It's a really weird story that has rather weird art that suits it (although it's a bit hard to follow what's happening). It's a Western story about Death and his daughter, Ginny. There's a little girl with two different coloured eyes who is supposed to be Death's replacement for reasons. And a bunch of other people who may or may not be reapers. I don't really know what was going on. It was an okay read. Oh yeah, and a skeleton bunny is narrating the story to a butterfly. Very weird, but strangely okay. I probably won't be looking for Volume 2 though because I didn't think it was great.
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
