Once I dumped that book that wasn't speaking to me and added another graphic novel I stumbled across, here’s the full list of what I planned to read in April...
- Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air
- Corbin Reiff's Total F*cking Godhead: The Biography of Chris Cornell
- Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree
- The 15-issue 1977-1979 run of Jack Kirby’s Black Panther (basically the 1977-79 Volume 1 & 2 collection)
- María Hesse and Fran Ruiz's Bowie: An Illustrated Life
And I finished ALL OF THEM! It may look like five bullets, but with how those Panther comics were broken up, it's actually six books overall. I. Am. Stoked.
As for May, I plan to read:
Peter Straub's Ghost Story
Stephen King's Later
Mark Waid's Doctor Strange: Surgeon Supreme, vol. 1
Ed Brubaker's Kill or Be Killed: The Deluxe Edition (I read vol. 1 back in March, but this edition covers all four volumes of the series)
Ghost Story will be interesting. It's a long one at 500ish pages, and what I've read so far reminds me of a book I read late last year that I really didn't like. It makes a lot of sense that Straub's book was recommended to me because I read this other one. Oh well, we'll see. If I choose to not continue with it, I'll add something else instead. Gotta keep the streak alive!
Later should be fun because it's another in a series of pulp crime novels that horror master Stephen King has penned. I haven't read any of them, but I've always been intrigued. And a friend of mine highly recommended it.
