Day 4 Bout of Books -- Manga Rules! Short Stories next!
The artwork on the front of the book caught my eye immediately. Not just because of the huge, crazy, mad scientist eyeballs (don't they just practically scream Bela Lugosi? You compare them for yourself and see if you agree with me! ) but also add in the Lovecraftian cultists, the damsel seemingly in distress, and awesome bright colors....I was completely drawn in! There was no way I was going to let this book stay on the shelf!!
Bout of Books is going pretty well for me so far......delving into some short stories and then we will see where tomorrow takes me!
Bout of Books Reading list:
1. Under the Lilacs by Louisa May Alcott
2. Gracie: A Love Story by George Burns
3. Jim Henson's Return to Labyrinth 1 by Jake T. Forbes
4. Return to Labyrinth 2
5. Return to Labyrinth 3
6. All New McSweeney's Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories by Various. In Progress.
The Read-A-Thon is keeping my mind off a string of mishaps occurring this week --- car broke down, internet went down, finances in a bind......just a string of bad luck. So I'm glad to be escaping into the written word this week! Saves me from having to take myself wayyyy too seriously. :)
