This week, I'm just burning the candle at both ends. I'm trying to keep up here (since I dropped the ball last week!), do a couple of freelance jobs, not to mention my full-time job, plus, you know, being a mom to a 6 month old and a good wife to Mr. LL...so I'm not consuming a lot of culture these days. Here are couple of things, though:
The Wicked + The Divine
I'm late to the party with this series, but I've finally started reading The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie . I'm not very far into it yet, but I really like the art style and the concept really intrigues me. If you don't know about this series here's the synopsis: "Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever."
Vaginal Fantasy: October 2017
I follow along with Felicia Day's romance bookclub, Vaginal Fantasy, and really enjoy watching their meet-ups on YouTube. I rarely catch one live, but it's nice to have something to put on when I have a stretch of time to just relax (very rare these days!) I sometimes read along with them, but not usually. Still, I love the dynamic between the four ladies in the group and appreciate their wit and humor.
Speaking of book clubs…
My book club, Books, Booze + Bajingos is getting together tonight to discuss our last book, The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo. This book was my pick and I really enjoyed it. I definitely had a Spirited Away vibe to it with the descriptions of the spirit world and I found it to be a quick read. If you want to keep up with what we are reading next, join our GoodReads group!
