May reading round up....


The Three by Sarah Lotz
A brilliant and creepy thriller written documentary style about four planes that crash in different parts of the world and the after effects. Read my full review here.

Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill
A very dark young adult dystopian set in a world where women are no longer born naturally, but synthetically created by by men for men. The story follows Freida and the other girls in her school who are soon to graduate and find out the fate the men have chose for them: a companion, a concubine or a chastity. I'll be reviewing this in full in a few weeks.

Day Four by Sarah Lotz
This is the sequel to The Three, set aboard a cruise ship a few years after the events of the first book. Day Four is probably a more traditional horror full of ghosts, and possession after the electricity fails leaving the passengers stranded and panic ensues. I'll be reviewing this in full next Monday!

She-Hulk Vol.1 by Charles Soule & Javier Pulido
A fun series about Jen Walters a.k.a She-Hulk in her down time from the Avengers as she struggles to start her own law firm. As well as Hellcat as her side kick there's plenty of cameos to enjoy. The artwork was nice and full of bold colours but unfortunately the final two issues changed artists and the style was awful! Full of jagged lines, the characters just looked strange and it totally ruined it for me. Volume 2 does go back to the original artist so I probably will continue with it at some point though!  

Rat Queens Vol.2 by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch
Finally, volume 2 of Rat Queens! I absolutely loved the first volume and the second didn't disappoint. We got to learn more about the characters, there was plenty of action, and as with the first tons of sass! 

Suicide Squad Vol.1 by Adam Glass & Ryan Benjamin 
I haven't read a huge amount of DC comics, and honestly I wasn't too keen on this one. This is about a team of death row super villains recruited by the government to take on dangerous missions. I pretty much got it for Harley Quinn, and although she had a few cool moments she seemed to mainly be there to provide eye candy. I also found the story pretty boring, and the only part I really enjoyed was the little bit of Harley back story towards the end.



I also read a bunch of single issues this month, and these were my highlights: Guardians Team Up #4: She-Hulk Meets Gamora, Jem & the Holograms (the artwork in this series is beautiful), Bob's Burgers, Bitch Planet, And Then Emily Was Gone.
