Short stories I enjoyed this month:
Two's Company by Joe Abercrombie. So this was a little on the grimdark side and also full of gore, and yet somehow also a hilarious delight? Not sure how that worked but I'm pleased about it. Plus, queer lady narrator who is 1000000% done with everything, excellent.

Kid Dark Against the Machine by Tansy Rayner Roberts. I just have a lot of feelings about superheroes, I don't know if you knew. ♥ ♥ ♥ Plus, a version of Batman that (just about) stayed on the right side of my Batfeelings is not something to sneeze at.

Didn't finish: Bel Canto - Ann Patchett. I feel SLIGHTLY guilty for just abandoning this halfway through, but it was annoying me and I have a lot of other things to read, and also I spoiled myself for the end and it didn't seem worth it. It had that literary novel thing where there was a constant subtext of "by the way this is all SUPER MEANINGFUL JSYK", and I didn't like the fact that it was explicitly set in a mishmash of stereotypes rather than an actual South American country, and the few women mostly only got to be seen through the men's eyes rather than having point of view sections and ugh I just didn't care.

shinyjenni: Natasha Romanov (natasha)
I have flu and it's terrible. I'm exhausted and I can't stop coughing and it's been going on for OVER A WEEK and I'm so annoyed, I've never been ill for this long before. (Maybe when I had mumps? But I was really little then and I don't remember.) Ugh. Anyway, since I don't have the brain for my monthly books and comics post yet, here are some other things.

Comixology is having another Convergence sale this week! Still no Cass!Batgirl issues, boo, but there's some other good stuff in there. All the Batwoman issues of Detective Comics are on sale - that's the seven that were published as Batwoman: Elegy, plus three more - and they're definitely worth a read, if anyone hasn't done so already. Also there's The Hunt For Oracle (Nightwing 41-46, Birds of Prey 20-21), which features the first in person meeting between Babs and Dinah, yesssss. And Nightwing: Year One (Nightwing 101-106), which I mostly really liked, apart from the bit where it tries to retcon in a Babs-Dick-Kory love triangle, which makes no one look good. (This is one of the main reasons why I'm not keen on Babs/Dick - the way I've seen it get retconned into their past at Kory's expense.)

Also I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron (like a week and a half ago now) and LOVED it. Not unreservedly, but enough to make me just really really happy. :D Here is a list of things I liked about it:

The Quick
This is a book that I found very hard to rate, because I found it a pretty compelling read, and I think in many ways it was a good book, and yet every time I wanted it to go one way, it went the other, so that by the time I finished it only the fact that it was a library book stopped me from dropping it in the bath in sheer frustration. It's also a hard book to review without spoilers, which is why I'm reviewing it out of order and under it's own cut. spoilers ) So in conclusion: The Quick might be a good book! I think I liked it! But I also hated it.

I also read the Sleepy Hollow miniseries, but since Boom don't seem to have announced the trade yet I can't list it properly, grumble grumble. Anyway, it was pretty good, definitely recommended to fans of the show (who don't mind that lieutenant is spelt leftenant in all of Ichabod's dialogue /o\). The backup stories by Noelle Stevenson were particularly delightful.

books )
shinyjenni: Martha and Liz from Doctor Who, with the TARDIS and a Christmas tree in the background (martha liz christmas)
Happy December, everyone! Thanks for all the December talking meme prompts - I did this whole thing where I couldn't decide whether to reply to all of them or just some of them, and ended up replying to none of them, but they are all great and I am looking forward to talking about them! (Also, still taking prompts, if anyone wants to add anything. :D)

I am going to start off with this one from [personal profile] chaila: Books/comics/media you're looking forward to in 2015?

(Possibly I should have saved this one for the end of the month, when it'll be nearly 2015, but I do what I want, Thor.)

Books-wise, I'm never really aware of what's coming out when! /o\ I thought Sarah Rees Brennan's A Tale of Two Cities retelling, Tell The Wind and Fire, was out next year, so I could flail about that, but apparently it's not til 2016? So mostly what I'm excited about is series that I'm already reading that I presume will have new books next year: Seanan McGuire's Incryptid and Toby Daye series (the latter I will probably read in a giant racing tumult of FEELINGS), the last of the Raven Boys Quartet (...ok, technically I haven't read the third one yet, but I loved the first two SO MUCH), Ancillary Mercy (again, haven't read Ancillary Sword yet, but Ancillary Justice was basically everything I ever wanted).

Comics! Next year's Peggy Carter series is definitely something I'm looking forward too, mostly because I LOVED Kathryn Immonen's work on Journey Into Mystery. The Spider-Gwen one-shot was really fun and I'm excited to see it be expanded into a full series. G. Willow Wilson is writing... four issues, I think, of X-Men, so that should be a good time. I'm trying to start trade waiting more stuff (leading to the "should I start cancelling stuff off my pull list?" dilemma), so even though they've technically already started I'm looking forward to getting Captain America and the Mighty Avengers and Thor. I am looking forward to Marvel having so many female-led solo titles that I don't feel the need to buy them all! Though given She-Hulk is definitely for the chop and things are looking dicey for Elektra and Storm, this is of course not actually a given.

DC-wise, I am (possibly unjustifiably) pretty suspicious of Convergence, but given that Greg Rucka and Gail Simone are involved in the two-issue minis I think they're probably safe? So I'll probably get The Question (GREG RUCKA WRITING RENEE AGAIN AW YEAH! Also I really like Cully Hamner's art) and Batgirl (not convinced by the summary for this one, but Batgirl!Steph and Black Bat!Cass ACTUALLY INTERACTING YESSSSS), and possibly some more - I'm vaguely tempted by the all-female Justice League one, though the art is pretty eh. Sadly I am deeply uninterested in Dick/Babs, so probably won't bother with Nightwing/Oracle despite my love for both those characters. :/

Other media! STAR WARS STAR WARS STAR WARS. Other than that, it's superheroes all the way: Age of Ultron, Agent Carter, the Teen Titans and Supergirl TV series if they get going next year... I really love superheroes and none of the current TV ones are particularly appealing to me, so I have my fingers crossed for those two!

Plus all the other cool stuff coming out next year that I've forgotten about! (Another reason I should probably have waited to post this: other people's lists to jog my memory. OH WELL.)
