Weekly Reading Roundup – 5/18/20

Here’s a roundup of the things I’ve read the past week that didn’t make it to a review.

The Waste Lands (Dark Tower Book 3) by Stephen King

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I think it’s my favorite of the Dark Tower series so far.

Hawkman, Volume 2: Deathbringer by Robert Venditti and Bryan Hitch

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This series was better than some previous Hawkman efforts, and Bryan Hitch art is welcome, but I didn’t get into it that much.

Providence by Max Barry

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This one made my best of 2020 so far list. Full review might be in the cards later. Check it out if you like sci-fi.

Pokemon Adventures vol. 9 by Hidenori Kusaka and Mato

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This series is up and down. I don’t think I’d recommend it for those who don’t like Pokemon but it’s perfectly serviceable for those that do.

Pretty Deadly vol. 3 by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Another one that made my best of list. It was worth the 4 year wait after volume 2.

Astro Boy vol. 3 by Osamu Tezuka

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I’m not sure Astro Boy is going to be for me. I don’t mind older comics, but this one just isn’t doing it for me.

Throne of Jade by Namoi Novik

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The second book of Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series. While the first was mostly world-building there’s a lot of good character and relationship stuff between Laurence and Temeraire here.

Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs by Caitlin Doughty

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This was my first Caitlin Doughty book. It was funny and informative but I think it might have been better to start with one of her books that wasn’t answering reader questions.

Kekkaishi vol. 25 by Yellow Tanabe

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I’m really losing interest in this series. I’m mostly just reading so I can say I made it to the end of the series at this point.

X-Men: Days of Future Past Prose Novel by Alex Irvine

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Marvel has been re-releasing the Graphic Audio versions of all their prose novels the past 6 months or so. Most of them are truly terrible, this one was mostly fine.
