The Instagram challenge for day five was to take a picture of your current read with food (#btatyum). I cheated (again). Instead of food, I used a glass of coke, and instead of my current read I used a book on my ever growing tbr. The excuse for not using my current read was that I was reading on my iPad and my kindle all day. It would have been a rather dull picture. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
Not knowing what to pick up next from my TBR, I started browsing which graphic novels my library offered electronically. That means instead of sticking to the books I meant to read, I turned it into a graphic novel day. WOHOO.
I started the day off with Spill Zone by Scott Westerfeld. What a ride, I absolutely loved it. The day started fantastically, so I decided to try The October Faction vol. 1 by Steve Niles and Damien Worm, mainly because of the stunning and utterly creepy cover. I liked it a lot and decided to read vol. 2 as well, since it was also available through my library.
After finishing both of those volumes, I dove right into Outcast by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta. That one was also pretty solid, but I’m not a fan of the art in it. Moving on, I reached my goal of 100 books this year by reading Adulthood is a myth by Sarah Andersen. It’s funny, quick and very relatable.
Somewhere between graphic novels I went outside (what?!) and started Binti: Home by Nnedi Okorafor. I didn’t get very far before it started raining and I had to move my reading party indoors again unfortunately.
