So I have recently discovered I am a fan of Aquaman. I started buying the new comic issues because I was blown away by the story. A friend of mine at work recommended I read the new 52 series because she really liked them, too. So here I am, less than two hours after finishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and I've already finished the first of this series (called Aquaman Volume 1: The Trench). Aquaman is being laughed at on land as a silly useless superhero. But when some mysterious creatures from the sea attack a village near his lighthouse, Aquaman will overcome prejudice to save the day! I was a bit confused by some of the things going on surrounding the mysterious creatures (what exactly are they? Aliens? I don't think so but I wasn't really sure), but hopefully these questions will be answered in the next four volumes, which I've already put on hold!
Seriously, these new Aquaman stories are a lot of fun! I recommend you give them a try! :)
*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.
