Happy Labor Day, US residents! And happy Monday to the rest of the world! I read a whole bunch of books last month, so I’m going to keep this intro short so I can dive right in. A reminder of the rating scale (with puppy pictures!):

Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona

What started as a DNF cleanse turned into one of my new favorite things! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series, and will review once I’ve done that!

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

I know this is a classic, but I was bored to tears. I’ll review this at some point, but right now, I still need some space.

The Nerd’s Guide to Being Confident by Mark Manson

This was supposed to be funny, I think, but I found it to be arrogant, ableist, and entitled. Will likely never review.

Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies (Rebirth) by Greg Rucka et al

I’m new to comic books, but it was recommended that I start with this rebirth series for Wonder Woman, and I’m in love. I’ll be reviewing in the next week or two!

Wonder Woman Vol. 3: The Truth (Rebirth) by Greg Rucka et al

Be still, my heart. Steve Trevor isn’t going anywhere… there’s still another volume on the way.

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

I’ll be writing this review this week, but I’m not sure how I’m going to do it. I am still achy in all of my gooey places. I wish this book had existed when I was in high school and college.

Happy reading, and happy September!
