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.

a selection of things I did finish )

(Quick housekeeping note: I have run out of room for new tags on LJ, which is why they are a little sparse over there. /o\ Also, because I haven't mentioned this in a while, my decisions about which things I write about are pretty random, feel free to poke me for opinions on things I haven't said anything about if you want! ♥)

I read a disproportionately high number of comics this month )

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.
