Yep. I agree with all of them…
Here are some of the best things I read in September:
I know I posted earlier volumes last month, but I am still LOVING The Girl from the Other Side. I am waiting for Volume 6 to become available through the library system I use online. Sadly, that will be the last one currently available to me. Hopefully they will get more soon, because I just love this manga.
I finished out The Belgariad series. I am anxious to start the next set by David Eddings. Book 5 slogged a little bit for me in the middle, but it picked up at the end. I really enjoyed the series.
This was created from a series of blog posts that Dean Wesley Smith did while he wrote a short story a day for a month. It is a very interesting look at short story writing. This has inspired me a bit…we will see if anything comes from it…
My current pile of books to read that is sitting on my bedside table. Some are for research, some are for assignments from my mentor, some are for pleasure. This does not include the TBR list in my Kindle. LOL
The Girl from the Other Side by Nagabe is an amazing manga series that I’m not even sure where I got the recommendation from in the first place, but I am glad I found it. I read the first four issues so far and it is just wonderful. It has a horror bent to it (it has monsters in it, if you couldn’t tell by the cover) but is an awesome story about a little girl who befriends a monster in a land where it is very much humans vs monsters.
The artwork is cool. I have been reading it on the computer from library loan check-outs, so it isn’t as clear as I would like it to be. But I am loving the series so far.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes was a fun read. I really enjoyed it (yes, I love YA fiction!) I did have a slight cow with some of the facts having to do with a character who had a heart transplant, but not every reader is going to have the inside view that I have had in my life. Barring that, it was an awesome book and I can’t wait for the sequel (which comes out September 7th!!!)
How to Draw Fantasy Art & RPG Maps by Jared Blando. Yes, I have been playing with making RPG maps. This book has been a great introduction to it. RPG cartography is really cool and a lot of fun actually. I have been using Inkarnate software to create my maps. Maybe I will share some soon…
