August reading round up...

Because of working so much overtime this month I haven't had the chance to read many books, but thought I'd still go ahead with my round up...

Me & Mr J by Rachel McIntyre
A YA about Lara, a sixteen year old girl who is bullied at school, has family problems and finds herself falling for her new English teacher. Written in the style of a diary this was an enjoyable enough read. Full review coming soon! 3/5

Chew Vol.1 by John Layman & Rob Guillory
A tongue in cheek comic about Tony Chu, a detective who has a weird secret: he is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. So if he nibbles a piece of a murder victim he can find out who did it and why! Add into the equation chicken is prohibited due to an outbreak of bird flu, and some very bizarre murders and you have a funny and strange series that I can't wait to read more of! 4/5

Alex + Ada Vol.3 by Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn
Alex and now sentient android Ada are trying to live their life in a world where sentient robots are illegal, will they make it? I read volume three in single issue form as I was too impatient to wait for the tpb to be released. Sadly these five issues are the last of the series, and were brilliant. The story was completely heartbreaking, but finished on the perfect note and highly recommend you check out this thought provoking, and emotional story. 5/5


Single issues...
Again I didn't get to read many but my favourite singles of the month were Convergence: Catwoman, and Alex + Ada.
