September 2015: Required Reading

August 2015 Required Reading Report

1. Ubik by Philip K. Dick - (5/5 Stars) I now understand PKD's reputation as being among the sci-fi greats. Ubik is a story that can be interpreted in so many different ways, it's mind boggling.   

2. Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human by Grant Morrison - (4/5 Stars) The arrangement of ideas and topics is somewhat chaotic that one can get confused as to whether what kind of book Morrison is actually aiming for. But Morrison's passion for comic books shines through his writing.    

3. Fables by Bill Willingham (issues 41-48) - (3-4/5 stars) An old favorite of mine and one of those comic book series that has gone on for a quite a long time, wrapping up only this July. It has 150 issues compiled inside 22 volumes. Issues 41-48 brings with it a lot of revelations and some interesting of backstories for some of the lesser characters.  

September 2015 Required Reading:

 1. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee - Our book club's book of the month. This was all anybody could talk about at the time of it's release and my curiosity has been at its peak since then. 

2. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe - Introduced to me by Meliza of Mecanism and it is said to be among the influential works in African Literature. This is also my entry for Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge item #8: A book by an author from Africa. 

3. Stitches: A Memoir by David Small - My first foray into the world of graphic novel memoir. 

Reading anything interesting this September?

  1. I hope we'll like Things Fall Apart. Also, that Stitches graphic novel was one of those that I've been looking at Book Depository months ago. Lend me your copy when we see each other. :P
