Guess who is going to a work conference in Paris in the fall? And who will be staying a few extra days to tourist and will be meeting up with a friend from Legends of Tomorrow fandom for those days?

What I've recently finished reading

Meredith Finch: Wonder Woman: A Twist of Fate
And they're back to the weird mythological plot themes. And changing their minds about people killed off in previous issues. Oh well, that's superhero comics for you.

Garbi Schmidt: Ebba
On one hand, it's a very well-written novel, very evocative. On the other hand - it never feels like Ebba does anything herself? Her family arranges her first job, her employer arranges her education and work. It feels like all her life choices aren't - that life mostly happens to her. Towards the end of the book she finally takes a little initiative, planning a thing - and then her sister derails it completely and we're back to where we were.

And then there's the part of me that finds it a bit odd to read an entire book about a woman bookseller and not a single reference to Kvindelig L├Žseforening, considering the time period.

David Kushner: Rise of the Dungeon Master
So - basically a highly condensed history of RPGs told in comic book form. It was - less interesting than I had hoped.

Makoto Yukimura: Vinland Saga book 6.
I can't help comparing the Knud in these comics to the Knud in Martin Jensen's novels - and find him wanting. Mind you, the Knud in the comics is insane, so...

What I'm reading now

Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter's The Long Utopia (the key word here is long) and Gene Wolfe's A Borrowed Man.

What I'm reading next

Possibly Himmelbj├Şrnens skov by Britt Karin Larsen, but we'll see.

Total number of books and comics read this year: 116
