I know I’ve been a total slack-ass this week. Unfortunately, I’ve been really sick. It feels like a hundred things have gone wrong in my body all at once. The one thing keeping me from reading is my horrendous sinus migraines. Thank you so much, Georgia pollen count.
Anyway, I haven’ t read anything this week whatsoever. I reread Catching Fire last weekend, but didn’t feel like posting AGAIN on THG stuff. The interwebs are filled with enough of it right now. I’d rather do a movie review once I see it tomorrow night (as long as my body doesn’t totally shut down). I will say that Catching Fire didn’t hold up as well the second time through. It felt like two novels crammed into one, less emotionally developed, uneven, and I began to dislike Katniss – I even had moments of seeing New Moon Bella Swan in her characterization which left me not happy.
I have managed to read at least half of The Walking Dead’s Compendium One collection. This particular collection is the first 48 issues of the comic and has over 1000 pages. I’m enjoying comparing and contrasting the source material to the show – the good, the bad, and the ugly. They actually compliment each other well and tell a much more complete story next to each other.
Our Litwits discussion is this Sunday and I still haven’t finished Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin. Feels a little show to me. I have about 100 pages left, but can’t manage to read more than 10 pages at a time. It’s not bad; I just don’t feel compelled to keep going. I don’t know if it’s me or the book at this point. Will push through.
